A. Sir, as per your query, A legal notice issued over a mail is very weak form of notice.

email does not constitute valid notice unless:

1.You can prove that the person actually got it and read it, typically because they have admitted to it or responded to your email,
2.You have agreed with them in advance that emailing them qualifies as notice, or
3. There is a statute which says that email notice is okay.

There is no law that says, universally, that certified mail is adequate notice.

Having said that, there are two things you can opt to do.

1. Keep quiet & not respond to those emails. such emails are similar to those of lottery and winning bonanzaz that keep on coming to the user
2. However, this email though weak is still a form of a legal notice which is sent to you. You may or may not opt to reply to the same. Or else you can lodge a complain against the said legal notice sent to you via email & issue them a legal notice for the same.

You can also show the police the evidences which show the falseness of such company if required and prove that it is nothing but a sham company.

They will not be able to recover anything from you.
Hope this helped you
