AAww..boo hoo..just posting what has already been posted on other sites now, but fair enough, don't want to get CAG into trouble. The emails are hilarious though, foul mouthed emails from Andrew to his ex-wife is amusing..oh dear Mr Crossley, you really are a horrid piece of work arn't you.

 

I think this is going to get ACS into a whole heap of trouble :)

Everything they have on you i would imagine but it really isnt anyrhing more than anyone who was determined to get info on you could get on you unless you have card or bank details with them. That being said in theory they should not keep such information on record anyway, escecially so without telling you on a web-site that is clearly unsecure. If they have i would find tthat a bit naughty IMO.

 

 

Well..it appears that all ACS emails are out there as are a big batch of faxes, not sure about other information though, except the BSkyB list.

 

The collection includes the incoming and outgoing emails of Andrew Crossley and his employees, complete with attachments, and contains masses of information about how ACS:Law goes about its business and how much money it makes, plus embarrassing personal details.

The leak reveals Crossley discussing how he might buy a Ferrari (he decides on a less impressive Jeep in the end) and talk about how the company can most efficiently track and record the thousands of alleged offenders, with an amusing exchange where he thinks two people can process 200 cases a day and is politely informed by an employee that they would have to work without breaks to achieve this target.

There are abusive emails to his ex-wife, personal contact details, passwords to Paypal and other sites, and it also appears that Crossley is a fan of loopy conspiracy theorist David Icke. Perhaps those inter-dimensional lizards are also guilty of file sharing?

Beware of legal advice given on a private forum - do you REALLY know who is posting? Are they REALLY accountable for their posts? What if you follow their advice and get something wrong?

Eerr..Its possible coz I have them, its a large file, its on quite a few torrent sites, but its raw email data so isn't instantly viewable anyway......plus theres a hell of a lotta emails !..Ill let you know when I've opened it.

 

I gather that the BSkyB list was an Excel attachment to one of the emails.

Ouuch !.

 

Viewed the spreasheet, it's quite a serious breach, it lists BSB customers (and a few Easynet and Unknowns), their IP address, the film they were alledged to have downloaded (mostly porn I'm afraid) and then their name and address. If anyone think they maybe on this list they should be warned that this information is now freely available and needs just a little know-how to download and view, of course there are thousands of other emails to/from Andrew and his staff containing all sorts of personal information.

BBC seems to be looking into it,

 

 

Forgot to add Virgin Media are the only ISP to not have given this firm any details, So if your with VM BB and had a letter off this firm then ignore.

 

Payback is a b*tch.

 

MrH.

 

Yep...You are correct..and TalkTalk (which I think has been mentioned before in this thread).

 

"However the communications reveal many disturbing facts and also appear to confirm that ACS:Law has preferred NOT TO TARGET two specific ISPs with demands for personal details, TalkTalk and Virgin Media UK. Both appear to be more trouble than they're worth for the law firm, which is after all centred on making money; that is also very much clear from the emails."

Guy's I know this information is like gold dust but I'm going to have to unnaprove some posts here until we can get clarification of the legality of it. The data was obtained illegally and some of which is privileged information between a client and his solicitor. Whilst the site team recognise this information is in the public domain, that data is in a different format and the contents of the emails are not being readily reported yet.

Fair enough and Im not suprised, but Ill point out anything I've posted is from websites that have clearly posted the information in direct form on their sites already (I havnt posted anything from the emails directly), also it is now clear that nothing was hacked, the email backup was actually posted on ACS Law's website, a major cockup on their behalf !

 

It is now reported on so many sites that I find it hard that ACS would be able to do anything about it, even if they wanted.

 

And..yep..gold dust is the right word..it blows apart almost everything ACS have said upto now.

 

The real pity is that there are many thousands of people who have now have the misfortune of having their details known.

 

We shall see what tommorow brings :)

Hahaha! No whitewash there! Really sticking it into acs law - the "criminal attack" defence "doesn't wash". Indeed firms that are subject to resentment like this should be extra careful. Said he could fine "half a million pounds" on about three occasions. One of the biggest breaches ever!!

 

No more npos for andy?

 

Hope cmw was watching! These emails demonstrate collusion between the two firms.

 

Still no response from sky. T*****s!

AAww..All my juicy stuff has been removed, never mind, I understand why. Without giving too many details, many of the emails will be very embarassing for ACS Law, they discuss their business model, the reasons why they 'drop' cases.

 

Oh yeah...ACS staff are rather poorly paid, but then again they may not be in employment much longer, wouldnt you like to be a fly on the walln in the ACS office today ? :)
