Domain registration scam in China

December 8th, 2008 · 455 Comments

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 joewein.de LLC,

We are Beijing Erimut Network Information Technology Co., Ltd in China, which is the domain name registration centre here. A formal application from the company called ChengGuang Investment (China) Co.,Ltd is to register ” jwspamspy ” as their domain name and internet keyword on Mar 17th 2008. Since this involves your company name or trade mark, in no time do we inform you of this. Please contact us timely if a first registration is needed to protect the domain names and internet keywords.

  • 6 joew // Jan 4, 2009 at 23:58

    @Anuj:

    The street address in their domain registration is fake / incomplete. They use a HK phone number but their WHOIS claims they’re based in Beijing. They probably don’t really want anyone to know where they’re based.

    Hi, thanks for your very useful website. I received this scam too, exactly like the Hong Kong examples above. I recently registered my company’s trade mark in a European country, so this Hong Kong email by someone called Leo Wang looked quite serious first. Apparently they use European trade mark databases as their source? Or is it a pure coincidence? Fortunately I am rather suspicious and the first thing I did, was using Google with a fragment of the scam mail. That brought me to your site (and several others). Thank God that there are websites like this, informing us about this nasty type of fraude.

    Hello Marshall,

    the sad fact is that international online scams in general are a low priority for law enforcement in most countries, and this scam will rank low amongst other scams.

    As general rule, the police will not seriously get involved in international online scams unless the damages run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Scammers who defraud only people outside the country where they are based usually face little risk of arrest. This is not only true for scammers in China, but also in Europe, where say Nigerian scammers based in the Netherlands will refer Dutch victims to colleagues based in Spain, the UK or Nigeria (and vice versa), to make sure the police is always in another country.

    To be a bit cynical, police officers stand a better chance of getting promoted if they concentrate on cases where both the criminal and the victim are based in the same country as the officers and the courts. If they have too many cases to handle already, why should they concentrate on cases that do not directly affect their fellow countrymen?

    In the case of the registration scams, it’s not even that obvious that laws have been broken. Yes, they’re liars, swindlers, who are doing something highly unethical, but how can you or I *prove* that the third party they claim is after “our” domain names doesn’t actually exist?

    It’s not like we were placing an order for 100 cell phones, pay for them and then not receiving them. When even that kind of openly criminal scam barely gets prosecuted, what hope is there with scams like these? Not much.

    While there is a lot to be done to clean up internet related services in China (including numerous international spam gangs using Chinese servers as hubs of their criminal botnets), relatively small scale scams like this one are not going to be at the top of anyone’s list.

    Thanks for this. I received an email from hknsc.hk. first thing this morning. Initially I dismissed it as a scam but got a bit worried when I saw their quantcast rating and wondered if they are were actually a large and legitimate company. Typed in hknsc scare in Google and found the posts to your site which seem to indicate they are just out to scare domain owners in to registering useless domain names. I suppose they could actually build their whole business on this – considering how many poeple worldwide will respond to them. The company they allege to be in pursuit of our domain name has “zero” presence on the Net. Thanks for the information.

Currently, we have postponed this application of this company temporarily already. In order to deal with this issue better, please let the principal make a confirmation with me by telephone or email ASAP.
    In addition, I must state that we have time limited for one person or one company’s registration. It is just 15 days. If your company files doesn’t resent within the time limited. We will unconditionally authorized the application of “Peter Alldis”.Thank you for your cooperate.

    We have had two e-mials..an ‘introduction’ and then a second, more detailed message of ‘intent’ listing the seven domains that this ‘company’ was intending to register’on behalf of their ‘client’ .

    Ours was another one generated using hk-nsc.org but this person openly gives his web address as ‘www.hknsc.hk’ a legitimate looking company that actually shows its true e-mail contact is ‘info@hknsc.hk’

    Our ‘contact’ is a Henry William.
    However, his command of the English Language is not quite all that one might expect from someone with such an Anglo Saxon name……I wonder whether he has Charles, James and George as middle names…….

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    We are a domain name registration center in Hong Kong, mainly dealing with domain name registration and internet intellectual property rights protection. On May 11,2009 we received a formal application from a local company who is applying to register several domains, using “surestartresources ”as the Internet keyword. After investigation,we find that you are the original user of the keyword. Such similar domain cases may involve your trademark and company name,and may cause website confusion and conflicts. For a responsible attitude, we inform you here and ask for your opinion. If you don’t mind,we will finish registration for the third company.

    Look forward to your reply.

    Thanks

    Kind Regards,
    Henry

    I replied to this guy, asking how much to register the domains. Their prices were reasonable, however the catch was it was a minimum 5 years registration period. If we had registered all of them for 5 years, the cost would have run to a couple of thousand dollars. He even had the hide to phone me after emailing a registration form. His accent was Chinese, but he had clearly learned his English from someone with an American accent.

    I did some quick checks and found that the website mentioned in his address block failed to work. Another tell-tale sign it was a scam is that his email domain didn’t match his website domain. I ran a Who-Is check on the website domain name and interestingly it had only been registered two weeks prior to me receiving his solicitation:

    eworld.hk / eworlddnr.com / eworld.hk.cn are all used with the same HK phone number for this scam.

    A lookup of the domain registrant of eworlddnr.com finds:

    ====
    Domain Name: EWORLDDNR.COM
    Registrar: TODAYNIC.COM, INC.
    Whois Server: whois.todaynic.com
    Referral URL: http://www.NOW.CN
    Name Server: NS3.01ISP.COM
    Name Server: NS4.01ISP.NET
    Status: clientTransferProhibited
    Updated Date: 08-jul-2009
    Creation Date: 08-jul-2009
    Expiration Date: 08-jul-2010

    Registrant:
    Name: LiQing
    Address: HK
    City: Hk
    Province/state: HK
    Country: CN
    Postal Code: 519000

    Administrative Contact:

    Phone: +86.8338669799
    Fax: +86.8338669799
    Email: 1domain@163.com
    ====

    This shows that
    1) the domain was registered with an incomplete postal address.
    2) the registrant is unaware that Hong Kong doesn’t use post codes. Mainland China uses six digit codes such as 519000 (the city of Zhuhai in Guangdong province), but Hong Kong does not.
    3) The domain was only registered one week ago.
    4) the listed phone number is a Chinese number, not a Hong Kong number.

    These scammers are not based in Hong Kong as they are trying to make you believe, but in mainland China. That’s where their website is hosted too.

    hk-nsc.hk is hosted on the same server as hknsc.hk and can therefore be assumed to be part of the same scam series as erimut.com, erimart.com, erimart-domains.com.cn and hknsc.hk.

    The following domains used for these scams appear to have been disabled: erimut.com, eworld.hk.cn, eworlddnr.com, worldwidesolution.org

    Many of these domains use name servers 01isp.com and 01isp.net. Looking at the IP addresses of the following domains using these name servers, it appears many are hosted in the same neighbourhood:

    87-global.asia = 202.104.186.4
    eworld.hk = 202.104.186.4
    hk-net.hk = 202.104.186.4

    hknsc.hk = 202.104.186.4
    hknsc.org = 202.104.186.4

    asiachannel.com.cn = 202.104.186.6

    fw-publicdomain.org.cn = 202.104.186.6
    hk-nsc.org.cn = 202.104.186.6
    qepeng.org.cn = 202.104.186.6
    registry-china.org.cn = 202.104.186.6

    fw-chinadnr.net.cn = 203.169.164.18
    fw-chinadnr.net = 203.169.164.18
    fw-chinadnr.org.cn = 203.169.164.18
    fw-chinadnr.org = 203.169.164.18

    tc-chinareg.org.cn = 203.169.164.18
    tuojing-china.cn = 203.169.164.18

    The scammers are constantly coming up with new domain names for the same old scam, but are hosting them on the same Chinese servers.

    No doubt there will be many more, as long as these scammers make money. Any email that mentions these numbers is likely to be sent by the same scammers:

    +86 21 6296 2950
    +86-21-6296-1557
    +86(0)21-6296-2950

    011-86-21-6296-2950
    011-86-21-6296-1557

    Even if it’s a different phone number and name, as long as they alert you to someone else registering a similar domain to your own then it’s a scam as legitimate registrars would never contact people who are not their customers.

    I’m so gullible! I actually replied to the first letter. So now some financial holdings company wants to use my ceramic tile domain. (That makes sense) Apparently they’ll hold this company off for 5 days while I decide to buy up all the chinese versions of my domain. Unless of course, if I’m doing business in China. Evidently, that will cause some sort of conflict or problem :)

    Thanks so much for posting this information!!

    1. If your company consign Zalxg company to register these domain names and internet keyword, we will send application form to them and help them finish the registration at once.
    2. If your company have nothing to do with Zalxg company, they maybe have other purposes to register these domain names and internet keyword.

    We haven’t finished the registration of Zalxg company yet, and we have postponed this application of this company temporarily already. In order to deal with this issue better, please contact us by telephone or email as soon as possible.

    We are an organization specified at dealing with domain name dispute and registration in Asia. We have something important on intellectual property right need to confirm with your company.

    On September.7.2009. We received a formal application from a company called Poolcom Co., Ltd , who applied to register “YOUR-DOMAIN-NAME ” as their domain name in some countries and Network Trademark. But after our investigation, we found this keyword conflicts with your company’s name and trademark, so we send you email and want to confirm with you on whether you have authorized the Poolcom Co., Ltd to register these domain names and Network Trademark.We need to know the comment of your company because the domain names and Network Trademark may relate to the copyright of brand name on internet.

    (If you are NOT CEO,please forward this to your CEO, because this is very urgent.)

    Dear CEO,
    We are the department of registration service in China. We have something to confirm with you. We formally received an application on September 23, 2009. one company self-styled “Cave Investments and Development ltd” submitted their registration application which based on Network Brand “nwm-management” as following domain names:
    nwm-management.asia
    nwm-management.cn
    nwm-management.com.cn
    nwm-management.com.hk

    nwm-management.org.cn
    nwm-management.tw
    After our initial checking, we found the brand name and these domain names were similar to your company’s, so we send email to confirm with your company if you are the same company or you authorize their application.
    If you are not the same company, then “Cave Investments and Development ltd”’s application must be reviewed by domain dispute procedures. Domain dispute registration’s time limit is 10 workdays. If we can not get your formal reponse, we will finish registration for “Cave Investments and Development ltd” automatically according to the registration procedures.

    Thanks for your cooperation.

    You’re posting from China, where these fraudulent registrars are based. Assuming for a moment that you are not one of their employees, they may well have legitimate customers in China.

    This does not mean that the many fraudulent email sent to domain holders all over the world, in which they pretend that some third party was just about to register look-alike variants of their domain, are in any way genuine. They are not. It’s nothing but a fraudulent scare tactic to part people from their money.

    If eworld.hk / eworlddnr.hk was a genuine registrar, there would be no need for it to operate under all of the following domain names:

    eworld.hk / hk-net.hk / hk-nsc.hk / hk-nsc.org / hknetwork.hk / hknsc.hk / hknsc.org / asiachannel.com.cn / augnetworks.cn / fw-publicdomain.org.cn / hk-nsc.org.cn / qepeng.org.cn / registry-china.org.cn / fw-chinadnr.net.cn / fw-chinadnr.net / fw-chinadnr.org.cn / fw-chinadnr.org / fwo-cdnr.net.cn / fwo-cdnr.org.cn / hk-net.org.cn / tc-chinareg.org.cn / tuojing-china.cn / 87-global.asia

    Conversation: Read: About “Uchi” intellectual property rights( TO CEO &Principal )
    Subject: Re: Read: About “Uchi” intellectual property rights( TO CEO &Principal )

    Dear Oliver,

    I have spoken to Mr Dick Waylong at our subsidiary company Laereace International Holdings Ltd and he advises me that he has not yet received the application form that you said you would send through upon my authorisation (see email dated 06.10.09).

    Could you please advise if this has been sent yet and if so who it was sent to? Mr Dick Waylong believes that Mr Ivor Chugnut in the Marketing Department may have sent the original application that you received but he is on vacation up at Porpoise Spit with his elderly mother so we can’t contact him to check as I don’t think they get the internet at Porpoise Spit, I know they certainly don’t get colour television up there….imagine only being able to get black & white TV??? what a pain.

    It does strike me as odd that in your initial email you state that you “received an application formally” from Laereace International Holdings Ltd and then you say that upon our authorisation you “will send application form to them and help them finish the registration at once” – considering you have the original application, can’t you just process that? But then I guess you Chinese people always do have some strange ways of doing things. Plus I’ve certainly never understood why you think those boiled chicken feet taste so good. And I’m sorry, but it’s true, you are really bad drivers.

    I’d appreciate if you could let me know where this is at immediately, I don’t really like wasting time following up on things like this particularly when I have a pressing deadline on a very important project – I need to finalise by next Wednesday the design drawings that we are submitting for “The 2009 Annual Australasia & South East Asia Colostomy Bag Design Competition” – we’ve entered it every year since 1997 but we’ve always come Number Two which is a bit of a dump and I really think this year we might win it – we always name our designs after planets, last year was Jupiter and the year before that was Mars and this years entry is called Uranus. Would you like me to send you some copies of the drawings of Uranus? That way you’ll have a really good understanding of what we do which is important if you are handling all our Intellectual Property requirements. I think you’ll find them interesting, everyone that I have shown the drawings of Uranus to so far have been speechless although one or two people did think it was a bit on the large side and can you believe that one person actually said they thought that our submission of Uranus stank??? I think that is a little harsh actually.

    But anyway.

    We need to have this whole domain names and network trademark thing sorted out before we submit our Design Drawings of Uranus for the competition on Wednesday and that is only 4 more sleeps to go if you live in Australia but it’s 5 more sleeps to if you live in the USA (which I don’t) because they are a day behind Australia, I think they used to be at least a week behind us, if not years, however since they elected President Obama they seem to be catching up with the rest of the world. Do you think he will let the Gays get married? I think he should because those Gays really know how to throw a party don’t they?

    I hope your English is very good and you can understand how urgent this matter is. If your Engrish is no good, prease let me know and I transrate into Chinglish for you. I am very fluent in Chinglish because I buy my groceries from a Chinese Grocery Store and I like to read the labels on the back of the packets. Just to prove to you how fluent I am in Chinglish I’ll write some things about the Hair Shampoo I bought recently – “After wasing, no scruf shall exist and her passion fragrant smell prevailing in the world can bring elegant and fragrant smell to successful peopol”.
    Tell me Oliver, do you think my accent was okay? Sometimes people think I am Chinese because my accent is so good, which is kind of weird don’t you think? Particularly because I am 5 foot 11 inches tall and have red hair.

    Please advise the status of this very important matter URGENTLY.

    Kind regards

    Melinda Lawrence

    Hello!Sorry to trouble you!
    We are a internet service provider and based in HongKong, which mainly deal with the global companies’ domain name registration and internet intellectual property right protection. Currently, we have a pretty important issue needing to confirm with your company.

    On Oct 28.2009.

But after our investigation, we found this trademark conflicts with your company’s name and trademark, so we send you email and want to confirm with you on whether you have authorized the Hellolly Holdings Limited to register these domain names and Internet trademark.We need to know the comment of your company because the domain names and Internet trademark may relate to the copyright of brand name on internet.

    If you do not know this company, we doubt that they have other aims to buy these domain names. Now we have not finished the registration of Hellolly Holdings Limited yet, in order to deal with this issue better, Please contact us by telephone or email as soon as possible.

    I received this Hellolly holdings email which my wife instantly denounced as a scam but I investigated by asking my hosting company for advice.

    They said they thought it was probably genuine so I’ve gone ahead and registered more European domains but via my hosting company. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now since another firm who clearly wanted my domain name have registered a name quite similar.

    Anyway thanks for the information I tell the hosting company that this is a recent scam.

    To: warrenr

    Dear Manager,

    I’m a overseas representative of Todaynic.com,Inc., which is one of the biggest and most famous professional providers of domain name and network service in China.

    Now we have something need to confirm with you. We hope you can cooperate with us.

    On Jan 25th 2010,we received an application from one person named “Conlin Scott” who attempted to register following domains.

    my-domain-here.asia
    my-domain-here.cc
    my-domain-here.com.hk
    my-domain-here.com.tw
    my-domain-here.hk
    my-domain-here.in
    my-domain-here.net.cn
    my-domain-here.org.cn
    my-domain-here.tw

    According to our investigation, we found that above domain names are related to your company’s name or trademark. If Conlin Scott doesn’t work for your company

    and you don’ authorize him to register these domains,we think their registrations maybe have some influence on your aisan market development,so we inform you about

    this issue and hope you can protect your interests.

    We are dealing with the domain name application in these days, so we wish to get the confirmation and the assent of your company.

    Waiting for your soonest response!

    Hi J F,

    todaynic.com is a 9 year old domain name, so one would assume them to be legitimate, but todaynic.gd.cn is more recent (just over 2 years old). You’re right, whether they are otherwise legitimate or not, this is the same scam as the others.

    On Feb. 28, 2010, We received an application formally. One company named “LungFed Investment Co.,Ltd” wanted to applied for the Internet Keywords “your-domain-name” and some domain names through our body.

    During our preliminary investigation, we found that these domain names’ keyword and Internet Keywords is identical with your trademark. Meanwhile, it is in the special time of financial crisis. Many companies are registering and protecting their own internet intellectual property right in various methods. These days we are dealing with this case, I wonder whether you consigned LungFed Investment Co.,Ltd to register these domain names through us? If yes, we will complete the registration on these domain names and Internet Keywords. Or you do not even know this company what so ever? Currently, we have postponed this application of this company temporarily already. In order to deal with this issue better, we need to know the opinion of your company, this matter is very urgent, please contact us as soon as possible. Please let someone in your company who is responsible for trademark or intellectual right contact me freely.

    I am looking to hearing your reply.

    .com.tw
    .hk
    .in
    .net.cn
    .org.cn
    .tw

    After our initial checking, we found the brand name and these domain names being applied are as same as your company’s, so we need to get the confirmation from your company. If the aforesaid company is your business partner or your subsidiary company, please don’t reply us, we will approve the application automatically.

    Here is another possible example we received 4/14/10;

    Dear Manager

    We are a professional intellectual property rights consultant organization, mainly deal with the global domain name registration and internet intellectual property rights protection.
    On April. 12th, 2010, we formally received an application from DeiXing Investment Company, they applied to register the internet brand ( goldenbaymachining ) and some in China and Asia’s domain name.

    During our preliminary investigation, we found that these domain names’ keyword is fully identical with your trademark. Therefore, we need to confirm with you, whether you consigned DeiXing Investment Company to register these domain names with us or not? Or, is DeiXing Investment Company your business partner or distributor? If you have no relationship with this company, we assume that they have other purposes to obtain these domain names.

    Currently, we have already suspended this company’s application temporarily due to the seriousness of this issue. In order to avoid the vicious domain name grabbing, please let the relevant person make a confirmation with me via email as soon as possible.

    Thank you for your support to our work.

    Best Regards

    On June 24, 2010, we received an application from one company named “Sabiny Holdings Ltd” who wanted to apply for the network keyword ” YOUR-DOMAIN ” and some related domain names through our organization.

    Now we are handling with the registration of these domain names and find that the keyword of these domain names and network keyword is identical with your company’s. According to our technique department’s investigation, Sabiny company does not have prior rights to this keyword but you do.

    So we have to confirm with you at two points:
    1. If your company consign Sabiny company to register these domain names and network keyword, we will send application form to them and help them finish the registration at once.
    2. If your company have nothing to do with Sabiny company, they maybe have other purposes to register these names and network keyword.

    We have suspended their application and can not proceed before we get your confirmation.
    If you are the corporate representative of your company, please reply this email and I will feedback some problems to you;
    If you are not, please forward my message to the right person or department soon.

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I’m sorry to disturb you so abrupt. We are a domain name registration service company in Asia,

    On 9th July. we received a formal application submitted by Mr. John Sun who wanted to use the keyword “(my domain name here)” 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.

    And after my inquiry they sent back this.

    Dear Jason,

    Thanks for your prompt reply.We knew you have registered the domain name “readyrugby.com.au” and own the intellectual property,
    this is why we informed you.But now the Investment company wanted to apply for other cn/asia domain names and
    Internet trademark Keyword you have not registered yet,like “www.readyrugby.cn, http://www.readyrugby.com.cn, http://www.readyrugby.asia“. It’s china and asia domain name. You must know Domain name takes open registration, this is international domain name registration principle. So the Investment company has right to register them. As a domain name registrar, we have no right to dispute their application.So required by China government to inform your company to protect your interest. But as the company whose trademarks relate to the applied domains, you will get the priority to register these domain names.

    Of course, each company has their own idea. If you don’t think their application will affect your company, you can give up,
    we will finish their registration. The Investment company will become the legal owner of these domain names in the world.
    You will be responsible for the loss caused by the matter yourself. But if you think these domain names are useful for your company,
    we can send an application form and the price list to you and help you register these within dispute period. This is the only way
    to prevent domain name grab. Pls let us know your decision soon, so that we can handle the next step.

    Looking forward to hearing your reply.

    Best regards,

    Another example of the scam:

    ====
    Dear President&CEO,
    We are a domain name dispute and register organization. Currently, we have a pretty important issue needing to confirm with your company. On Sep 16. 2010, we received an application formally.A company named “Karlson International Holdings Ltd ” submitted the application to our organization, and they required to register some domain names with the Internet Product keyword of “YOUR-DOMAIN”.

    Now we are handling with the registration of these domain names and find that the keyword of these domain names and Internet Product keyword is identical with your company’s. So we have to confirm with you at two points:
    1. If your company has consigned or authorized Karlson to apply to register those domain names and the Internet Product keyword with us, then we will finish their registration according to the procedures.
    2. If your company has not consigned or authorized Karlson to apply to register those domain names and the Internet Product keyword , then according to our working experience, they might have other purposes. So we have responsibility to confirm with you.

    Now we temporarily have not finished the registration for Karlson , but delayed their application through the procedures, but this is not the best way. In order to solve this case in a better way, please contact me through email or phone the very first asaastime. Waiting for your reply.

    Thanks & Regards,

    My spam emails did not ask me to register domains with them. Does that come later, as I did respond to the first spam? My reply simply stated that the applications they received were not authorized. When I got a second spam email, from a different person’s name I became suspicious and did my research to find it was, indeed, a spam.

    A number of Chinese Domain Name providers are trying, in bad faith, to encourage European companies to register a number of Asian domain name extensions. These providers typically claim that they have received a registration request from another company who wishes to register domain names that are identical to your company name.

    What to do?
    Our China IPR SME Helpdesk Experts suggest that in case you receive such an email you have four options:
    1) ignore the email
    2) reply to the email that you will report this email to CNNIC (the Chinese domain name registry) as ‘slamming’ and an attempt at fraudulent activity
    3) forward the email to CNNIC at service@cnnic.cn
    4) Register some of those domain names you may have already considered registering, through your local or usual registrar.

  • 203 Joe Wein // Oct 20, 2010 at 08:22

    Ignore them.

    They tell *anyone* that another company was trying to register .asia, .cn, etc. variants of their domain. In reality no-one is trying to register anything, it’s just a scare tactic. No genuine registrar would search out and contact owners of other domains if someone was trying to register a domain with them that was similar to those owned by the other site owners. They would simply go ahead and perform the registration. The mere fact that you have been contacted shows they’re not bona fide registrars but scammers.

    Unless you’re trying to sell to Chinese customers with a Chinese language website there’s usually no need for a .cn site, and even then a .com can be used worldwide.

    To: Angela

    Hello Angela,

    Thank you for you performing you duty on our behalf, indeed, atomicshrimp has been a heirloom in our tribe for many many years and to see the name with the .cn and .asia is in itself a grave insult to our culture and heritage.

    Before paying with a bo’Degh or two, as is the custom in our land let me assure you that we will take all the necessary precautions so that this will not develop into a full Klingon tribal revenge. Like they say: “leghlaHchu’be’chugh mIn lo’laHbe’ taj jej”. We got everything under control – DO NOT WORRY!
    - Hide quoted text -

    However I am sure that a company of your stature could assist me in a major way.

    I am the group managing director of the Anti Klingon Burps And Narcotics federation (AKBAN) and a member of the ad hoc committee set up by the federal government of Qo’noS to review contracts awarded by the past star-fleet administration between 1985-1993. The members of the committee are interested in the importation of goods into the country with the funds presently floating in the Central Bank of Qo’noS – Anti Klingon Burps And Narcotics federation (AKBAN) foreign payments account.

    Our request is anchored on our strong desire to establish a lasting business relationship with you and your company (ygnetworks). We hence solicit your partnership to enable us transfer into your account the said funds. You have been recommended to us in confidence and we were assured of your ability and reliability to prosecute business transaction that require maximum confidentiality.

    This fund is presently floating in the Anti Klingon Burps And Narcotics federation (AKBAN) foreign payments account with the Central Bank of Qo’noS (CBQ). This is as result of grossly over invoiced contracts which were executed for the AKBAN during the last administration in Qo’noS, and are presently under verification. To this effect, the present administration in Qo’noS set up an ad-hoc committee to identify, scrutinize and recommend for payment all valid contracts that have been fully executed. In the course of our assignment, we have identified a lot of misappropriated and inflated funds which are presently floating in the suspense account of the Central Bank of Qo’noS ready for payment. The companies who executed their contracts have been fully paid. It is now part of the over inflated sum of 2 USD that we intend to transfer into the foreign account.

    I have therefore been mandated as a matter of trust by the members of the committee to look for a foreign partner into whose account we could transfer the sum of 2 USD (Two US dollars) only. Hence I am writing you this letter. We have agreed to share the funds thus:

    (1) 65% for us (the committee members) and
    (2) 25% for account owner (ygnetworks.org or you)
    (3) 10% to be used in settling taxation and all local and foreign expenses that will be uncured in the course of this transaction.

    It is from the 65% that we wish to commence the importation business. Please note that this transaction is 100% safe and guaranteed since the law under which our committee was set up has empowered us to disburse all the funds found to be floating in the Central Bank of Qo’noS redundant account from 1985 till date. We shall commence the transfer of the funds immediately we receive the following information by telefax: (number omitted):

    (1) your company’s name and full address
    (2) your banker’s name, address, telephone and fax numbers
    (3) the account number and name of beneficiary.

    The above information are to enable us put up letters of claim and job description to the respective ministries for the issuance of the mandatory fund release approval/recommendations. This way, your company will become recognized and accepted as the beneficiary of the contract entitlements before the final remittance to your nominated account by the Central Bank of Qo’noS being the paying bank.

    We are looking forward to doing this business with you and solicit your absolute confidentiality in this transaction. Please acknowledge the receipt of this letter using the above telefax numbers for more details regarding the transaction.

    Yours faithfully, Worf, Son of Mogh
    Anti Klingon Burps And Narcotics (AKBAN)

    the same!!! wow, now thats a scam

    Dear Aaron :

    Thanks for your prompt reply.We knew you have registered the domain name “redsquared.com.au ” and own the intellectual property,
    this is why we informed you.But now HAITONG company wanted to apply for other cn/asia domain names and
    Internet trademark Keyword you have not registered yet,like “www.redsquared.cn, http://www.redsquared. asia”. It’s china and asia domain name. You must know Domain name takes open registration, this is international domain name registration principle. So HAITONG Investment
    company has right to register them. As a domain name registrar, we have no right to dispute their application.So required by China government to inform
    your company to protect your interest. But as the company whose trademarks relate to the applied domains,
    you will get the priority to register these domain names.

    Of course, each company has their own idea. If you don’t think their application will affect your company, you can give up,
    we will finish their registration. HAITONG company will become the legal owner of these domain names in the world.
    You will be responsible for the loss caused by the matter yourself. But if you think these domain names are useful for your company,
    we can send an application form and the price list to you and help you register these within dispute period. This is the only way
    to prevent domain name grab. Pls let us know your decision soon, so that we can handle the next step.

    Looking forward to hearing your reply.

    This email is from China domain name registration center, which mainly deal with the domain name registration and dispute internationally in China and Asia.
    On January 17th 2011. We received HAITONG company’s application, they want to register ” logopaint” as its Internet keyword and CN/Asia domain names. It is china and Asia domain names. But after checking we find this domain name conflict with your company, in order to deal with this matter better, so we send you email, and want to confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China?
    I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
    Best Regards,

    And after replying this:

    Dear Bettina :

    Thanks for your prompt reply. We knew you have registered the domain name “logopaint.com ” and own the intellectual property,
    this is why we informed you. But now HAITONG company wanted to apply for other cn/asia domain names and
    Internet Keyword you have not registered yet, like “www.logopaint.cn, http://www.logopaint. asia”. It’s china and asia domain name. You must know Domain name takes open registration, this is international domain name registration principle. So HAITONG Investment
    company has right to register them. As a domain name registrar, we have no right to dispute their application. So required by China government to inform
    your company to protect your interest. But as the company whose trademarks relate to the applied domains,
    you will get the priority to register these domain names.

    Of course, each company has their own idea. If you don’t think their application will affect your company, you can give up,
    we will finish their registration. HAITONG company will become the legal owner of these domain names in the world.
    You will be responsible for the loss caused by the matter yourself. But if you think these domain names are useful for your company,
    we can send an application form and the price list to you and help you register these within dispute period. This is the only way
    to prevent domain name grab. Pls let us know your decision soon, so that we can handle the next step.

    Looking forward to hearing your reply.

    Best regards!

    I got this one.

    Dear President&CEO,
    We are a domain name dispute and register organization. Currently, we have a pretty important issue needing to confirm with your company. On Mar 28. 2011, we received an application formally.A company named “Karlson International Holdings Co. Ltd ” submitted the application to our organization, and they required to register some domain names with the Internet search keyword of “medianoche”.

    Now we are handling with the registration of these domain names and find that the keyword of these domain names and Internet search keyword is identical with your company’s. So we have to confirm with you at two points:
    1. If your company has consigned or authorized Karlson to apply to register those domain names and the Internet search keyword with us, then we will finish their registration according to the procedures.
    2. If your company has not consigned or authorized Karlson to apply to register those domain names and the Internet search keyword , then according to our working experience, they might have other purposes. So we have responsibility to confirm with you.

    Now we temporarily have not finished the registration for Karlson, but delayed their application through the procedures, but this is not the best way. In order to solve this case in a better way, please contact me through email or phone in the very first asaastime. Waiting for your reply.

    If you receive this an e-mail Urgent notice of intellectual property protection. Read It Then

    This is a scam to get you to pay money for a domain name that you have all ready paid for. If you are concerned about the safety of your domain name contact your domain name suppler first. DO NOT WIRE ANY MONEY TO THIS PERSON, FOR REGISTRATION your own domain supplier is the company you pay. nobdy can use your domain name if it is up to date and paid for.

I know it is a scam but I thought it would be quite good if it were true because I would get lots of extra hits on my site by people searching for the other sites.

    Dear CEO & Principal,

    We are a professional intellectual property rights consultant organization, mainly engaged in domain name registration and internet intellectual property rights protection.

    We formally received an application from ” Golam Holdings Co.,Ltd. ” On April. 27, 2011, whom applied for registering the Internet Search Keyword ” XXX ” and some related domain names with our organization.

    During our preliminary investigation, we found the keyword of those domain names is identical as your trademark. Therefore, we need to confirm with you whether you consigned Golam company to register with us or not? Or, is Golam company your partner or distributor? If you don’t have any relationship with this company, they may probably have other purposes to obtain those domain names and Internet Search keyword.

    We have already suspended this company’s application temporarily due to the seriousness of this issue. In order to avoid the vicious domain name grab, please let your principal make a confirmation with me via telephone or email as soon as possible. Thank you for your support to our work!

    If you have any question, please do not hesitate contact me ASAP.

    Lorna,
    if they say they’re contacting you because some third party is trying to register some Asian domains that you own a .com/.net/.org/.ccTLD version of then it’s a scam, no need for futher checking. Real registrars don’t hold a registration to check with owners of similar domain names in different top level domains. They take the registration fee and register the domain.

    Hello

    I received a similar mail indicating “Peek Investment Ltd” wants to register some domains.

    I forwarded the messages to the CNNIC. Here is their reply (where they indicate “we will record the information and forward to some in charge, in order to monitor domain name market better”):

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    Thanks for your letter.

    Different organizations are in charge of domain with different ending. CNNIC is the national registry for .CN Domain Name. The domain names ending with “.asia” etc. and Net Brand are out of our charge. As we know, if the Net Brand was no suffix at the ending, it could be Internet Keyword, it is administrated by Knet Company, we suggest you to contact Knet Company to learn about Internet Keyword. Their contact information is as following:
    Website: http://www.knet.cn
    Email address: service@knet.cn, supervise@knet.cn
    Telephone: +86-10-58813333.

    As CNNIC do not face to end users, CNNIC accredited registrars are responsible for providing registration service. We confirm that http://www.dish-china.org is not one of our accredited registrars, and is not a reseller of .CN domain name under registrar level. Thank you for letting us know about it, as a member of Self Discipline Pact who monitors and administrates the .CN domain name, we will record the information and forward to some in charge, in order to monitor domain name market better.

    Different applicant may have different understanding for the same word. Thus, there are possibilities that other customers are interested in these words, and are willing to register “ynamics.cn” “ynamics.com.cn” “ynamicsnet.cn” and “ynamics.org.cn”. In order to avoid this happening, we suggest you registering them in the purpose of using and protection. Otherwise, the name list of CNNIC accredited Domain Name registrars can be found at:
    CNNIC Accredited CN Oversea Registrars: http://www1.cnnic.cn/html/Dir/2007/06/25/4671.htm
    CNNIC Accredited CN Domestic Registrars: http://www1.cnnic.cn/html/Dir/2007/06/05/4635.htm

    Both overseas applicants and domestic applicants need to submit application materials when making the online application to the registrar. Normally, the application material includes: card of organization construction code or business license, Identity card of contact person. All above documents should be issued by Chinese government. If you want to register .CN domain name, but unable to submit the required documents above, you could register domain name in name of your branch or subsidiary in China.

    Should you have further questions, please feel free to contact us.

    Your sincerely,

    Importance: High

    Dear Principal,

    We are domain name register center in ASIA, We have something important need to confirm through your company.

    We received a formal application from a company called “Carnelian Investment Company” applying to register

    Domain names:

    «COMPANY-NAME».info
    «COMPANY-NAME».asia
    «COMPANY-NAME».net.cn
    «COMPANY-NAME».org.cn
    «COMPANY-NAME».tw

    «COMPANY-NAME».in

    Internet brand name:

    «COMPANY-NAME»

    In China and also in Asia on July 7 2008.
    During our auditing procedure we find out that the alleged “Carnelian Investment Company” has no trade mark, Intellectual property, nor patent even similar to that word. As authorized anti-cybersquatting organization we hereby suspect the alleged “Carnelian Investment Company” to be a domain grabber. Hence we need you confirmation for two things.

    First of all, whether this alleged “Carnelian Investment Company” is your business partner or distributor in ASIA.

    Secondly, whether you are interested in registering these domains. (The alleged “Carnelian Investment Company” will be entitled to obtain a domain not needed by original trademark owner.)

    If you are not in charge of this please transfer this email to appropriate dept. in order to deal with this issue better, please let someone who is responsible for trademark or domain name contact me as soon as possible.

    Best Regards,

    Steven

On April 9, 2012, we received an application from Hengtong company requested “lindnerimnorden” as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names. But after checking it, we find this name conflict with your company name or trademark. In order to deal with this matter better, it’s necessary to send email to you and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China?

    We just had the same thing! Same email as the others have had…..the ONLY way we caught them out was because they wrote to us about one of our domains, and we said, ‘yes’ to registering it so that it could not be taken from us in another country, but when the form was sent through to me to fill out, it was in the name of another of our domains…..got fishy, investigated and found this forum.

    LUCKY!!

    I told them to go ahead and let them register. If they end up harming my company’s online presence then we would take it up with the world courts at ICANN which would rule in our favor.

    What’s even more amazing is this followup I received today. I find it hilarious that the name they are ‘wanting’ is so important when I know for a fact it has no relevance in the Asian culture.

    From: “Lin Dong” tianhuacompany@163.com

    Dear Sirs,
    We are Tianhua Ltd based in Chinese office, our company has submitted the “xxxxxxx ” as CN/Asia domain name and Internet Keyword, we are waiting for Mr. John’s approval. We hope your company will not object our application, because this name is very important for our products in Chinese and Asian market. We don’t want your company to use this name in China and Asia, we believe our company will become the legal owner of this name in China and Asia. Even though Mr. John advises us to change another name, we will persist in this name and permanent registration of this name.

    Dear CEO/Principal,

    I’m sorry to disturb you so abruptly.

    We are the department of registration service in China. On November 5,2012, we received an application formally. One company named “Jiqin Investment Co.,Ltd “had applied for the net brand “xx” and some relevant domain names through our body.

    Now we are handling this registration, and we found that the keyword of these domain names and net brand is identical with your company’s. So now we need to confirm a couple of things with you:
    1. If your company consigns “Jiqin Investment Co.,Ltd” to register these domain names and net brand, we will send an application form to them and help them finish the registration at once.
    2. If your company has nothing to do with “Jiqin Investment Co.,Ltd”, they maybe have other purposes to register these domain names and net brand.

    We haven’t finished the registration of “Jiqin Investment Co.,Ltd” yet, and we have postponed the application of this company temporarily already. In order to deal with this issue better, please contact us by telephone or email as soon as possible.

    In addition, we hereby affirm that our time limit for dissent application is 7 days. If your company files no dissent within the time limit, we will unconditionally approve the application submitted by “Jiqin Investment Co.,Ltd”

    We haven’t finished the registration for YGTR Investment Limited yet, and we are checking their application, but we must finish the registration within 7 days. In order to deal this issue better, please contact us by telephone or email asap during this period.

    Another one. Their site looks legit as a registrar. Responded and then they wrote back with a list of domains. I suspect the next step would be that they ask me to register them. Hopefully this will make them make up new names at least.

    Also got an email exactly like this except from simon@tsnetsolution.com about a company that wanted to register the same tdl’s as above with my company name. The company that wanted my name is Kerla Investment which does not exist anywhere on the internet. I did ALOT of research as my company is expanding worldwide over time and didn’t want to run into problems if my company name was used for a porn site or something. For everyone’s reference here is all I found. The Chinese gov’t has an internet authority www1.cnnic.cn/index.htm, where you can search out your own registrar, read about their dispute resolution policy (use their search engine to find it) and their way of doing things in China. After using godaddy to register some of the tdl’s, I found an ICANN recognized registrar in China and registered the rest of them for alot less than Simon was asking and only for a year to discourage any company if the claim was real. However, the domains tsnetsolution.com and tsnetsolution.org (which is simon’s website) were only registered in December 2012. Their website says copyright 2011 and says they have been in business for years. As well, after emailing back and forth with simon for about two weeks now, he said a few things in his emails which made it clear it was a scam. ..He hasn’t realized yet either that I already bought the names through another real registrar. Just in case you want to buy domain names, you can do your own research but I went through about 30 registrars before I found http://www.now.cn (use google to translate it). They are recognized by the CNNIC and ICANN (check ICANN website for http://www.todaynic.com of which http://www.now.cn and http://www.eranet.com, also okay, are subsidiaries) and you can find them all over the internet over many years. I paid through paypal and would suggest you do not pay any other way. We’ll see what happens when he checks and finds out that I gave my money (not much really) to another company. Becoming a registrar in China is also easy I found out so this is probably a bunch of guys who make profit from scaring people to register through them.

  • 379 EM // Jan 31, 2013 at 04:19

    ..More info.. surfed a bunch of the sites above and they all look the same more or less with same text and all. A new one I just found a scam for is here…http://blog.hqcodeshop.fi/archives/6-Chinese-domain-scam!.html… Good scam I have to say. Buggers are getting really good. never thought twice about this kind of stuff before… They got me really working to investigate this time!!

  • 380 EM // Feb 1, 2013 at 01:16

    Last info.. These guys can be scared off by referring them to the United Nations website and advising them of the “Madrid Policy” International trademark protection rules, or filing a complaint with them or ICANN. Read the rules here…

    I can confirm that this scam is still very much active, we also received email with similar text to the examples posted above from someone calling themselves “Jasson Wong” from a company using the website address http://www.dsh-web.org.cn (which is included in the message only as an image but the email address the messages were supposedly sent from uses the same domain) and claiming someone was trying to register website domains using our brand name for China, Hongkong and Malaysia-TLDs.

  • 384 Paul // Mar 1, 2013 at 18:09

    This is indeed active, we have also received one this morning.

    As we specialise in marketing communications I will just warn you. Do not even open this email, put it in spam then open it without loading the images if you need to but if you get any images they know you exist and chances are you have opened the email. This can trigger an increase in spam to your account!!

    Here is a new one to add to the list!
    ==============================

    (Mail to the brand holder, thanks)

    Dear CEO/Principal,

    I’m sorry to disturb you so abruptly.

    We are the department of registration service in China. On March 15,2013, we received an application formally. One company named “XiangFeng Investment Co.,Ltd” had applied for the Brand Name “evkdesign” and some relevant domain names through our body.

    Now we are handling this registration, and we found that the keyword of these domain names and Brand Name is identical with your company’s. So now we need to confirm a couple of things with you:
    1. If your company consigns that company to register these domain names and Brand Name, we will send an application form to them and help them finish the registration at once.
    2. If your company has nothing to do with that company, they maybe have other purposes to register these domain names and Brand Name.

    We haven’t finished the registration of that company yet, and we have postponed the application of this company temporarily already. In order to deal with this issue better, please contact us by telephone or email as soon as possible.

    In addition, we hereby affirm that our time limit for dissent application is 7 days. If your company files no dissent within the time limit, we will unconditionally approve the application submitted by that company.

    Best Regards

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you very much for your feedback. I known you didn’t authorize that company. When our registration department found you are using the relative domains when we receive the application of that company so we informed you by email.

    Following domain names and brand name are applied for by Huaxiawine International Co.,Ltd:

    Brand Name:

    [YOURDOMAIN]

    Domain Name:
    [YOURDOMAIN].cn
    [YOURDOMAIN].com.cn
    [YOURDOMAIN].com.hk
    [YOURDOMAIN].hk
    [YOURDOMAIN].net.cn

    The registration is very open in China, who register first who own it. But you have priority to apply for them. If you don’t want these domains and brand name, this company has right to register these domains list above. By far we have suspended their application and wait for your feedback. If you want to expand you trade market or you worried any confusion in your market, my suggestion is that you protect first. I will send you the price list and the registration procedure for you. Please make up your mind as soon as possible,if you delayed too long I will automatically default that you give up.

    The first e-mail was received April 1st. As you seen, they gave 7 days to answer. There are forwarded messages, they have even sent quotations for registering and for example price for registering brand name is per year, when everyone that has registered his brand knows that you pay once and you have it for ten years.
    As for domains, they say the company is interested in the asian domains. They recommend you that, if you don’t have an interest in that market, leave them register and if not, you must register first, being the price double than the ones you find in reliable domain registering companies.
    Is it really a scam? My boss requieres me to find out and we reported it to our advisors. But anyway, it makes me feel unsettled, worried.

    I’ve received kind of a similar email today. I almost trusted it, but luckily I went to Google… The main difference it that all the emails above write about “domain registration” and the email I received is about “international trademark” registration. I Googled “international trademark” and chinese scam, the address, the first sentence of the email and it all led to either nothing of the “domain registration” scam. So that made my decide not to trust it… But be warned now, that next to the “domain registration” scam there’s also an “international trademark” scam going on!

    ==========================

    (Please kindly forward to CEO or President who would be concerned about the Trademark and Domains. Thank you.)

    Dear President & CEO,

    We are a law office for Trademark, Patent Service etc. Please forgive my disturbing. I want to confirm one thing with you that on May 1, 2013 our office received the registration application of Yetta (HK) Co., Ltd for the following keyword International Trademark:

    International Trademark:
    *****(my brand)*****(including USA, EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, CHINA, CANADA ETC. 89 countries)

    After our examination, we found that your company was using the keyword, so we inform you to confirm whether you have authorized Yetta (HK) Co., Ltd to register the keyword International Trademark. If you have authorized, we will finish the registration at once; if not, not to interfere with your business and confuse with your company, please contact us by telephone or email within 7 workdays, and then we will base on your reply to decide our next steps.

    We have not heard from you since our last comunication. Because our company haven’t registered this name as CN domains (.cn/.com.cn/.net.cn/.org.cn) and internet keyword on the internet, anyone can obtain them by registration. You must know the domain names and internet keyword which applied based on the international principle are opened to companies as well as individuals. Also, we have suggested they should choose another name but they are persistent in this name. As a domain name registrar, we have no rights to refuse their application if they insist. In this situation, we have told you your company have the priorty in registering CN domains and internet keyword in our audit period. Could you tell us whether or not your company want to register these CN domain names and internet keyword to prevent anyone from using them?

    To avoid such scam, we would suggest domainers/domain Registrants to register/transfer .CN, .HK domain names with Accredited domain Registrars.

    To check whether a website/company got accredited or not, the following links for Asian domain Registries would be required

    For .CN Domain Registration:

    Dear Sir or Madam,
    We are a specialized company for domain name registration and protection. Here I have something to confirm with you. We formally received an application on November 28, 2013 that a company claimed “TO & MO Co., LTD” were applying to register solarim as their Brand Name and some domain names through our firm.
    Now we are handling this registration and after our initial checking, we found the names are 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. But 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 “TO & MO Co., LTD”. I am looking forward to your prompt reply.

    Dear xxx,

    Thanks for your confirmation. As soon as receiving the application of that company, we checked and found “solarim” is your company’s using name and brand. We are concerned that your brand might be affected negatively by their application, this is why we informed you, following Brand Name and domain names are applied for by that company.
    Brand Name:
    solarim
    Domain Names:
    solarim.asia
    solarim.cn
    solarim.co.in
    solarim.com.cn
    solarim.com.hk
    solarim.com.tw
    solarim.hk
    solarim.in
    solarim.net.cn
    solarim.org.cn
    solarim.tw

    That company also has the right to apply for the available domain names. For this reason that company is also an licit applicant and we have no right to reject them. Your company only own the preferential right to register these names.

    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. If you don’t want to protect your intellectual property rights, 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.

    Thanks for your reply. I reply you as following:
    1> If you don’t have any relationship with “CHIYIK Management Group”. According to our working experience, either they invest in domain names, or they do the same business as your client, so to confuse their customers and get profit.
    2> We knew you have registered the domain name “festipack.com”, But now “CHIYIK Management Group” wanted to apply for other domain names and Brand Name you have not registered yet. Following are all the domain names and Brand Name which are submitted by “CHIYIK Management Group”:
    Brand Name:
    ——-
    Domain Names:
    —–.asia Asia
    —–.cn China
    —–.com.cn China
    ——.hk Hong Kong
    ——.com.hk Hong Kong
    —-.at Austria
    —–.fr France
    —–.de Germany
    —–.it Italy
    ——-.ch Switzerland
    3> Because these domain names seem to have no relation with them, that’s why we send e-mail to inform you. As a domain name registry service organization, we have no right to reject any individual or entity to register these domain names through our body, because domain name registry is open all over the world, “who register first, who own first”. I think you also know that. But it’s our duty and responsibility to avoid this cyber squatting.
    Now, what you need to consider is to see whether you need to protect these domain names and Brand Name. If important for, pls inform us in time, so we can apply priority to register for you, and send the dispute application form to you at the same time. Due to time is limited, if you have any question, pls contact me in time. Thanks for your cooperation.

    Dear Manager,

    (If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO,Thanks)

    This email is from China domain name registration center, which mainly deal with the domain name registration and dispute internationally in China.
    We received an application from Huahong Ltd on May 26, 2014. They want to register ” joewein ” as their Internet Keyword and ” joewein .cn “、” joewein .com.cn ” 、” joewein .net.cn “、” joewein .org.cn ” domain names etc.., they are in China domain names. But after checking it, we find “joewein ” conflicts with your company. In order to deal with this matter better, so we send you email and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China or not?

    Best Regards,

    The company where I work gets these emails on average twice a year and each time I reply letting the company who’s contacted know that we’ve previously been contacted and are surprised to discover the domains are still available.

    I then proceeded to inform them that I will be forwarding their emails to the Chinese Embassy for their advice on the matter, after that they never ever get back to me.

    I also end the email with a little bit about how their venerable ancestors must be ashamed of them and they themselves should be ashamed for involving themselves in such a fraud.

    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.

    (This is a very important case, so please transfer this email to your CEO or Principal. Thanks a lot.)

    Best Regards,

    Andy Zhang
