Did they tell you anything useful, such as what these requests were,
when they occurred, what the destination was, or anything else?

Well, probably -- the place to start would be with the technical detail
that your ISP supplied to you, since that will help identify if we /can/
help you.

If they didn't provide those details then this would be the time to call
them and demand such detail, so that you are in a position to actually
resolve whatever problem they allege you are causing.
