I received an email with a subject line of “<my domain> domain name registration confirmation request” claiming to be the authorized anti-cyber squatting org in China, demanding we respond, etc…
Is this legitimate? Do I need to respond?
This is yet another Domain Registration Scam
We are the authorized anti-cyber squatting organization in China.
We write to inform that we received a formal application from a company who is called Dulegrp Investment Co.,Ltd is applying to register ” <your domain>” as their domain name in China on May.2nd, 2011. During our auditing procedure we find out that the alleged Dulegrp Investment Co.,Ltd has no trade mark, brand nor patent even similar to that word. Hence we need your confirmation for two things:
First of all, whether this alleged Dulegrp Investment Co.,ltd is your business partner or distributor in China.
Secondly, whether you want to protect the domains they applied to us (.asia and .cn as suffixes, The alleged Dulegrp Investment Co.,Ltd 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.
This is a letter for confirmation. If the mentioned third party is your business partner or distributor in China please DO NOT reply. We will automatically confirm application from your business partner after this audit procedure.
