I know I've received notices for supposedly pirating stuff I wouldn't touch unless they were going to pay me to take it (and even then, maybe not), so false accusations can definitely happen.
I've heard that a lot of these "notices" where they arent threatening to sue you, were sent to random IP's just for the purpose of preventitive scare tactics. IE, even if the user has never pirated a file, it scares them into thinking what may happen if they do, and they will tell their friends.
That wouldn't completely surprise me with the notice-and-notice system...
