Thanks.

The short answer is that it is. All the fact that it is unsigned will mean is that they could not rely upon your signature to prove that you have received it. Since you do not deny receipt that is a non issue.

The fact that it is unsigned will not invalidate any prosecution. Obviously some people would refuse to sign altogether if that were the case and some people are genuinely incapable of signing due to their condition or behaviour.

I'm very sorry if this is bad news for you.

Can I clarify anything for you?
