Are you sure it's genuine ?
How can they know your mail-adress when you download a torrent ??

Welcome to the forum @tixxyrose and sorry to hear about that, WhatDidUJustCallMe?


Certain internet service providers like sending automated mail like that. Like @Tarac said, have you been able to verify if it's really from your ISP? If it was, then there is this (and I know I may be leaning a bit too far out the window). I very often hear from people - especially in countries like the US or the UK - receiving these automated letters, but I yet have to hear from even one (1) person who went to jail for "merely" downloading stuff.

Nonetheless, try seeking out possibilities in your area of whether it is possible/feasible to switch the ISP. Or for now, try asking a friend or relative to download these things for you. At that point though, there isn't much on our end that we can do about this. 

Also, check out this thread about VPNs here, if you like. Maybe it can help you. 

Good luck, and I'm sorry about this.

Maybe not, but they can (and sometimes will - see France) cancel your internet subscription.

Your best choice would indeed be to use a VPN or use another network to download the stuff.
But choose the network carefully. You usually get banned on school/university/work networks for using torrents/P2P. Or it's completely blocked.
Using a VPN you can both circumvent this block and prevent being banned from the network, as they can't see what you're doing behind a VPN, as it's all encrypted.
