Peter Coffin Sends Bogus Legal Threat to 8Chan? (UPDATED)

UPDATE: I was able to get in contact with attorney who allegedly sent the email below. He did not send this email and he is not representing Peter Coffin. Someone is impersonating the attorney online.

I'll post commentary later. The commentary will essentially mirror the response I made to Julien Blanc's lawyer.
