Artist Claiming images theft from files i have legitimately downloaded from Envato Elements

Hi, I Have used some illustrations From Envato Elements and assigned my client to the download licence My clients has just received a disturbing and threatening email from some one claiming toe be the artist.

i there! This is Melitta and I am a licensed illustrator. I was confused, to put it nicely, when I saw my images at your website. If you use a copyrighted image without an owner’s consent, you’d better know that you could be sued by the copyright holder. It’s not legal to use stolen images and it’s so selfish! Check out this document with the links to my images you used …f you don’t get rid of the images mentioned in the document above within the next several days, I’ll file a complaint on you to your hosting provider letting them know that my copyrights have been severely infringed and I am trying to protect my intellectual property. And if it doesn’t help, trust me I am going to take it to court! And I will not bother myself to let you know of it in advance.

Can Anyone help me with this and how best to proceed

It is 100% a scam:

Don’t engage with that person, just ignore it.
