    Which German entity should I report what may be attempted fraud to?

    Dear commentards,

    I yesterday received an email from the German company Copytrack claiming that we used an image in breach of copyright; I had never seen the image before and do not find it where they claim it is.

    I want to write them an email telling them to get lost (in a few more words), but would really like to cc a suitable German authority as it is an actual German company, and I wonder if this is their SOP.

    Any suggestions?

    The company seems "interesting", they combine copyright chasing with blockchain and e-currencies and the founder has earlier been running an outfit helping people to claim for flight delays.

    update

    I found a form on the public prosecutor's website and reported the case (German word is Staatsanwalt)
