    what a bastard! maybe try a jetwash? if the car was a bit dirty then maybe the spay hasn't got a proper bond and may be able to get jetwashed off.

    Dont be tempted to use the jetwash on to fine a jet, this can damage the proper paint.

    If the affected areas are lightly covered then an aggressive clay followed by full polishing session is what I would try. If the paint is thick, then a strong solvent like Tardis (glue and tar remover by Autosmart) will dissolve the new paint safely, leaving the original paint untouched (this product can then be rinsed freely with water). If the paint is thick I would get it to a bodyshop asap, as they have such solvents to hand, and will be able to offer advise based on seeing the problem first hand. :)
