“Tilly Bailey and Irvine” Stop sending “Speculative Invoices” to save their Reputation

 

amitten2.jpg  Tilly Bailey and Irvine who started to emulate ACS:LAW in sending out “Speculative Invoices” to people asking them to “Pay up or be sued” have apparently halted their operations as it appears that the negative publicity is harming their other businesses.

Tilly Bailey & Irvine actually threatened to enforce the debt collection AGAINST the Property of the person accused.

We estimate that collectively such costs would be several thousand pounds. In the event that you were not able to pay whatever sums the court may direct, our client would have no option but to take steps to enforce the debt against your property.” 

Extract from   TBI letter

You can see the letter to one such person here (letter from Tilly Bailey & Irvine)  The Solicitors specialise in  illegally file-shared pornographic material copyrighted by Golden Eye (International) Limited.

I have tried to contact Tilly Bailey & Irvine, as have others with the same result, NO REPLY, indeed they have actually Blocked my Twitter account and my Youtube Channel.  This I find is a shame, as I am very courteous and polite and only want to know the truth and defend those who are falsely accused.  I do NOT believe that this is a way for a Solicitor to act.  Before you wonder why I believe they would respond to someone they believe is a “Pressure Group” I have also tried to contact them via straight email, but nothing.

I feel that it is NOT right for Tilly Bailey and Irvine to merely withdraw for COMMERCIAL reasons while still maintaining they were morally right in what they were doing.  IF they had apologised that would have been different.

We are left with a situation where Amanda Mitten with the collaboration of her Seniors has THREATENED peoples homes and livelihoods with NO EVIDENCE released, NO WAY for the person to defend themselves unless they bankrupted themselves to pay for a Solicitor.

This is why I believe Tilly Bailey and Irvine should NOT be allowed to rebuild their shattered reputation, UNTIL they accept that what they have done is “Conduct unbecoming a Solicitor” I hope the SRA will investigate.  To threaten to take someone’s home without evidence based on some foreign surveillance is an OUTRAGE.

One further amusing aspect of just how far they went to try to SILENCE their critics was this following extract regarding their attempt to “Vandalise” the Wikipedia Website

So, how do we know it was TBI doing the editing? Because they were smart enough to edit it from 195.153.132.204, the IP address registered to their company.

“Please do not remove sourced content from Wikipedia, as you did with TBI Solicitors — this is vandalism,” wrote a Wikipedia admin to Tilly Bailey & Irvine.

“Furthermore, your IP address geolocates to ‘TILLY BAILEY & IRVINE’ which suggests that you have a conflict of interest in removing criticism of the firm from Wikipedia. I suggest that you familiarise yourself with that policy before editing this particular article any further,” added the award-winning user, Rlandmann. From Torrentfreak Article.

 

So What do YOU think?

EDIT: I cannot actually list ANY of the titles of the Films that Tilly Bailey and Irvine represent as they are to Pornographic to post on WordPress.

About Hickster

I am one of the many innocent people who have been accused of file sharing by Copyright Trolls, my letter came from the now infamous ACS:LAW, but they have now been emulated by many more using the same system. Their ruse is simple, Send out letters of claim with NO Real evidence beyond an IP address that they claim was captured using a frowned upon hack of Shareaza. My REAL opinion of these companies turned when they started sending out Pornography claims, THAT is what I find most disturbing. People who HAVE to pay up without the option of having their day in Court. THAT is NOT Justice. Why can't they just go to Court? because the Lawyers, pitch the price of paying the "Compensation" at about the same rate as hiring a lawyer to fight it. Things have changed in the last 8 years though. I would advise people to read the "Speculative Invoicing Handbook Part 2", research these people yourselves, and find me at Slyck Forums, or on Twitter. Do NOT Worry, Stand Strong

    I wholeheartedly agree, the notion that bad publicity should stop because they have ceased thier action goes against the whole climate that they have themselves propagated, that of “we wont leave you alone until we get what we want”. I for one would gladly spend every last ounce of effort in my body to bring TBI down. they have caused stress to hundreds of people with no evidence. I believe thier partners should be looking for new firms to work for and as for Amanda Mitten… I believe she should be fired and then sat in an inquiry into the wholesale bullying over which she surveyed.

    TBI should NEVER be off the hook for what they have done.

    TBI sent me a letter and it effectively took over my life for the past seven weeks. I coudnt think of anything else for the worry of it all. I actually managed to speak to amanda mitten on the phone at one stage and she was totally impassive and unapologetic for her stance. I still worry even though they say they have thrown in the towel as I still dont know if they are going to do anything about the letters they have already sent. I take it we wont get a nice letter of apology or anything to acknowledge that they are going no further?
    Since the whole issue came ito my life I discovered these forums and took some comfort from knowing people were in the same boat and doing something about the hateful situation. I complained to the SRA and will be insisting they continue to deal with my complaint. I am now more knowledgeable about a lot of things inclduing teh DEb and have also left BT as a result of their invasion of my privacy.
