Domain registration scam in China

Various companies in China are trying to scare domain owners in other countries into registering Chinese variants of their domain names by claiming some other party was trying to register these variants. Examples of this scam have been reported widely throughout 2008, involving the domains asiaton.cn, erimut.com, erimart.com, erimart-domains.com.cn, hknsc.hk, hongkongnet.org, hk-net.org.cn, hknetwork.hk.cn and others (erimut.com, erimart.com, erimart-domains.com.cn and hknsc.hk are linked by IP address).

Here is one that I received on 2008-12-08, originating from IP 58.38.209.249:

Dear CEO,

We are Asiaton Network Service Co., Ltd, which is the Internet Trademark&domain name register center in China. I have something need to confirm with you. We have received an formal application. An international company named “ROB GmbH” wants to apply “joewein” for its own Internet Trademark and CN domain name on Dec 8, 2008 in china. We need to know your opinion because the Internet Trademark And CN domain name may relate to the copyright of your company name on internet. If your company do not intervene in it,we will formally consent their registration
because the registration principle is that “Every company or individual can register the domain name and Internet Trademark which is not registered,and who registers first who owns first.”
we would like to get the affirmation of your company. If you have any question,please contact us by telephone or email as soon as possible!

Best Regards !

Such email solicitations are fraudulent, because you can safely assume that the same email, with other domains substituted for yours, has gone out to thousands of domain owners. I found an almost identical email (listing the same third party supposedly trying to register a domain) in another blog. Somebody obviously thinks being a registrar is a license to milk foreigners.

Don’t fall for this scam, they’re playing on fear.

If you own a .com, .net or national TLD (.co.uk, de., .fr, etc) domain but are not planning to set up a Chinese office or not even doing any business in China you have no reason to spend money on a domain registration with a Chinese registrar. Also, trademarks and domains are largely separate issues. You don’t become a trademark owner merely by registering a domain and vice versa.

The only domains that really count for your business are .com/.net/.org (depending on the nature of your organisation) and/or the country code top level domain (ccTLD, such as .co.uk or .jp) if you’re based outside the USA.

Below are other examples of domain registration spams / scams that I have received before. I am sure there are a lot more out there.

    Dear CEO/Principal,

    This is Andy Zhang—Senior Consultant of domain name registration and solution center in China. Here I have something to confirm with you. We formally received an application on July 24, 2014. that a company claimed “RAINLANE LTD” were applying to register “xxxxxxx” as their Network Brand and some “xxxxxxx” Asian countries top-level domain names(in/hk/tw/etc) and China (CN) domain names through our firm.

    Now we are handling this registration, and after our initial checking, we found the name were similar to your company’s, so we need to check with you whether your company has authorized that company to register these names. If you authorized this, we would finish the registration at once. If you did not authorize, please let us know within 7 workdays, so that we could handle this issue better. After the deadline we will unconditionally finish the registration for “RAINLANE LTD”. Looking forward to your prompt reply.

    Dear Sirs,

    Our company based in chinese office, our company has submitted the ” Track2Publications/edupediapublications ” as CN/ASIA(.asia/.cn/.com.cn/.net.cn/.org.cn) domain name and Internet Keyword, we are waiting for Mr. Jim’s approval. We think this name is very important for our products in Chinese and Asia market. Even though Mr. Jim advises us to change another name, we will persist in this name.

    Best regards

  9. Another scam:
    Based on your company having no affiliation with them, we have suggested they should choose another name to avoid this conflict but they insist on this name as China domain names (.cn/.com.cn/.net.cn/.org.cn) and internet keyword. In our opinion, maybe they do the similar business as your company and register it to promote his company.

    According to the domain name registration principle: The domain name and internet keyword which applied based on the international principle are opened to companies as well as individuals. Any companies or individuals have rights to register any domain name and internet keyword which are unregistered. Because your company haven’t registered this name as China domains and internet keyword on the internet, anyone can obtain them by registration. However, in order to avoid this conflict, the trademark or original name owner has priority in the registration of China domain name and internet keyword during our audit period. If your company is the original owner of this name and want to register these China domain names (.cn/.com.cn/.net.cn/.org.cn) and internet keyword to prevent anybody from using them, please inform us. We can send you an application form with price list to help your company register these China domains and internet keyword during our audit period.

  18. Dear Marisa,

    Thanks for your confirmation. As soon as receiving the application of that company, we checked and found quadro is your company’s using name. We are concerned that your name might be affected negatively by their applications, this is why we informed you. Following Brand Name and domain names are applied by that company:
    Brand Name:
    quadro
    Domain names:
    quadro.asia
    quadro.hk
    quadro.org.cn
    quadro.tw
    quadro.cn.com
    quadro.sg
    quadro.top
    You know that the domain names registration is open in the world, that company also has the right to apply for the available domain names. You only have the preferential rights to register them.

    At present, we haven’t passed their application, we need your opinion. If your company consider these names of importance to your company’s business or interest, I suggest that your company register these names first so as to avoid confusion or speculation. Of course, each company has their own idea. If you don’t think their application will affect your company in the future, then my suggestion is your company give up these names so that we can finish registering for them as per our duty. Please give me your company’s decision as soon as possible in order to handle this issue better.

  27. Subject: Re:BRAND NAME OF

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    We are the Registrars accredited by CNNIC. We have a formal affair to confirm with you. Our Registration Department received an application from SANYA GROUP who applies to register “freya” as their brand name in China and some domain names through our organization. We found the main body of domain names they apply to register is same as your company. We inform you of this matter because it involves your intellectual property.

    Now we are handling this registration. Please let me know whether or not you authorized them to register these names. If you authorize them, I will formally pass through their registration; if not, please let us know within 7 workdays in order to handle this issue better. If not otherwise advised within that time limit we will proceed with the registration for that company. Looking forward to your prompt feedback information.

    Best Regards,

  28. I received a similar email trying to scare me for the domain name of my company. I am not sure what their intentions are, but lets think a little bit. If this Chinese domain company receives a request for a domain name that already exists, they just reject the request. They should not send emails to notify anybody(!), they should just say that the domain you want to register already exists! That what domize or anywhere you go to register a domain name does. As soon as you search the company the scam alert comes up! Does the Chinese company think that they can get customers this way? Does it really matter what your domain is? They are sending this message to all small business owners!
