[INFO] Beware of Domain Scam

For information, I have a website called It’s a fan site for Agnes Monica. And I have ran the website for 5 years now. But, although I own the website, I put my friend’s name (he’s the designer and techinician of the web) in the registrar. Since it will make him beable to moves faster when it’s needed. This is one of the reason I was surprised when I got this e-mail.

Dear Manager,

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 July 19th 2011, We received Tianhua Ltd’s application that they are
registering the name ” agnezone ” as their Internet Keyword and ”
agnezone .cn “、” agnezone ” 、” agnezone .asia “domain names
etc.., It is 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 I am 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!

– I was laughing a bit when I read this e-mail. This is surely a hoax since didnt sent it to the website official e-mail contact, but still to make sure I asked my technician friend to confirm this matter. So, beware when you receive this kind of e-mail. It’s a comon practice so don’t be fooled and reply their message.
