Domain scammers care about the environment

I received identical copies of this message over a couple of days at several totally unrelated email addresses hovered from various websites that I operate. This is the usual protection racket: If you contact them, they will charge you hefty fees to "protect" your domains. However, your domains are perfectly safe without their protection. Don't be fooled - ignore messages like this. Even if they do claim to care about saving trees.

To whom it may concern,
Sorry to trouble you, I got your email address from my colleague, We are a professional ISP organization in Asia, Recently we have received an application from one of our customer Debbie Werbeloff( from Tucows Group, they want to register some domain and Network Brands Currently, this application is right in the progress, however, when we were about to finalize the process, we double-checked these domain names and Network Brands, the keyword is very similar with your company's trademark. Therefore we need to confirm with you (as follows):

1. whether your company consigned Tucows Group, to register the Network Brands and other domain on the behalf of your company. If it is true, please let
us konw, as we will help them complete the registration.

2. if your company did not consign Tucows Group to register the Network Brands and other domain, please reply to confirm immediately.
