We received an email the other day, shown below, which had me puzzled for a while, until I did some checking.
I am now awaiting a reply, and expect them to try to sell me the Chinese and Hong King versions of my domain name.
Either this is a way to try to persuade people to register more Domain name versions, or this Mr. John Sun really does try to register MANY domains.
I’m sorry to disturb you so abrupt. We are a domain name registration service company in Asia,
On 14th April. we received a formal application submitted by Mr. John Sun who wanted to use the keyword “xxxx my domain name xxx” to register the Internet Brand and with suffix such as .cn /.com.cn /.net.cn/.hk/.asia/ domain names.
After our initial examination, we found that these domain names to be applied for registration are same as your domain name and trademark. We aren’t sure whether you have any relation with him. Because these domain names would produce possible dispute, now we have hold down his registration, but if we do not get your company’s an reply in the next 5 working days, we will approve his application
As authorized anti-cybersquatting organization we hereby suspect Mr. John Sun is a domain investor. so we need you to attach importance to this issue.
In order to handle this issue better, Please contact us by Fax ,Telephone or Email as soon as possible.
Yours sincerely 2010-4-16
