Default Mediacom Copyright Infringement Notice?

So I got a letter from my ISP (Mediacom) today telling me they've received a notice that i've been using my account to download copyrighted materials. Here's what the letter says.

Well, looks like my downloading illegally is over with.. Unless I found a way around this. I'm honestly kind of scared. Might have to try PeerGuardian 2 and block my ip and make things more secure..

It says I illegally downloaded a movie, "2012" when I called them.

Fucking mediacom. I've been downloading crap for YEARS, and I havn't even downloaded anything illegal in the past 2~4 weeks at least and I NOW get this..?

I work for Verizon, we send out a lot of those letters.
The letter should provide you with your IP and the date and time the media was illegally downloaded.
It usually takes a month or two from the time you get the illegal content to the time you get the letter.
Weather or not you are prosecuted is solely up to the owner of the content.
I have seen people fined a lot of money for one download and then I have seen people get 8 or so letters before any legal action.

It all depends on the owner of the content.
