Another domain scam for you to ignore

Emails like this are scams. This company was not asked to register any domains. They are lying about that. Instead, the company wants to sign you for expensive, but unnecessary, services. Ignore these messages.

From: "John"
Subject: Asia/Cn domain name & Internet Keyword

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 and Asia.
On December 29th 2011, We received Tianhua Ltd's application that they are registering the name " andevcon " as their Internet Keyword and " andevcon .cn "、" andevcon " 、" andevcon .asia "domain names etc.., they are China and ASIA domain names. But after auditing we found the brand name been used by your company. As the domain name registrar in China, it is our duty to notice you, so we are sending you this email to check. According to the principle in China, your company is the owner of the trademark, In our auditing time we can keep the domain names safe for you firstly, but our audit period is limited, if you object the third party application these domain names and need to protect the brand in china and Asia by yourself, please let the responsible officer contact us as soon as possible. Thank you!

Best Regards,
