I'd just respond to them back saying that I don't own the site in question
and for them to buzz off. Perhaps nicer wording.

Or even better, ignore it. Let 'em grumble. What are they going to do? Sue
you for something you didn't do and don't own? Let 'em. Then sue 'em back
for your time and trouble. Any greedy lawyer would be happy to take that
case. :)
