Chinese domain scams still making rounds

December 13th, 2012. Published under Uncategorized. No Comments.

Just received another one of these (Previous posts are here and here). Today brings a new example:

(Letter to the President or Brand Owner, thanks)

Dear President,
We are the department of Asian Domain Registration Service in China. Here I have something to confirm with you. We formally received an application on December 13 2012 that a company claimed Daster Industrial Co. Ltd were applying to register “DOMAIN_NAME_REPLACED” as their Net Brand and some 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 Daster Industrial Co. Ltd. Looking forward to your prompt reply.
Best Regards,

Ashin Yang
