Clearly if you go to a
specialist lawyer you should get good tailored advice. BUT most
people want to dispose of these sorts of claims quickly and
inexpensively. If you go to a lawyer they will have to comply
with all the regulatory obligations imposed on them by the Law
Society. This will mean subjecting you to Money Laundering

and prohibitively expensive. Hence our standard letters. We KNOW
they work and when you speak to us we will explain what you need
to put and why it works. Please note that we are very careful who
we speak to. The reason for this is
that we don’t want image libraries to stop us – and they will!
Their threatening letters are a great source of income and we’re
here to stop this type of unreasonable behaviour. For this
reason we will ask you to do the following:
a scanned letter from the image library together with ALL your
contact details, name address telephone number to us at

your details to us at:

deal with the correspondence with Getty and we shall send you
copies of the letters to and from us.
Is that it?
Our experience to date is that Getty have not pursued the
claims against people we have helped.
