Phish claiming your domain is about to be registered on Asian TLD’s

If you get email from someone claiming that your domain is about to be registered on Chinese and other Asian top-level-domains, don’t worry. This is very likely to be a scare tactic to get you to buy their domain for a high price. Ignore it, and move on.

Heres an example:

Dear CEO,

(If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO, because this is urgent. If this email affects you, we are very sorry, please ignore this email. Thanks)

We are a Network Service Company which is the domain name registration center in China.
We received an application from Hualong Ltd on September 19, 2016. They want to register ” securesolutions” as their Internet Keyword and ” securesolutions.cn “、” securesolutions .com.cn ” 、” securesolutions.net.cn “、” securesolutions.org.cn ” 、” securesolutions .asia ” domain names, they are in China and Asia domain names. But after checking it, we find ” securesolutions ” conflicts with your company. In order to deal with this matter better, so we send you email and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China or not?

Best Regards,

Jim | Service Manager
