Somebody has:

- Assumed my identity
- Created a brothersoft account using my personal email address
- Added my games to brothersoft.com

Flattered as I may be it is concerning that somebody has pretended to be me and create an account in my name (which would also include agreeing to their terms and conditions).

Anybody gonna own up?

As I did not create the account I will have to contact brothersoft and ask them to close the account.

Brothersoft is a badsite.

http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/brothersoft.com

It automatically traces what people on the internet look up, then create a page that 'offers them what they want' and gives em a nice virus instead.

It doesn't make much sense. I mean, whoever it was could easily have asked you if they could put them there under their own name no problem...

That's exactly it. Brothersoft ITSELF made the "account".
Which is actually just the pure fakeness; Don't tell me it's hard to look up software on the internet, and then pretend that the author made an account on your site.
The intention, is hope that people look up that software, and download it from Brothersoft instead of the original server.
Result: Adware. And sadly, adware pays a lot.

You can try contacting them but chances are high they won't even respond. They're criminals.

Oh don't worry. They spoof *lots* of people. Just like information.com (don't visit) buy domain names people accidently visit when they make a typo, or a domain name that doesn't exist anymore.
I'd contact them if possible, if they don't respond try contacting the police.

Yeah I emailed them to let them know, they replied but I have to log into my account to read it. Idiots.

Bahh.. Just don't care about em.
The less attention they get, the better IMO.
