This is getting tiresome. Another variation of the Chinese domain scam. The exclamation point abuse in the first sentence and cheesey web 2.0 reflective logo is just icing on the cake. Once again, what makes this a scam is no one is trying register the Chinese version of my domain name. It’s all a fabrication – a shakedown to extort money.
Below is the original email:
Sorry to trouble you! We are a domain name registration and dispute organization in Asia, 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 October,5,2010,we received an application formally. A company named “Arro-ou Investment Corp.” wanted to register some domain names with the keyword of “claytowne” through our organization.
Now we are handling with the registration of these domain names. When we checking their application,we found the keyword of these domain names are identical with your company’s. So, I want to confirm with you: Have you consigned “Arro-ou Investment Corp.” to register those domain names? Or are they your subbranch in Asia?
We haven’t finished the registration of “Arro-ou Investment Corp. ” 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.Waiting for your reply ASAP.
