    Default This is weird.........

    Seems someone is checking e-mails and found mine, anybody else got one? had this when I woke up this morning..........

    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.
    We received an application from Huaxiong Ltd on October 8, 2013. They want to register " forumsolridesonline " as their Internet Keyword and " forumsolridesonline .cn "、" forumsolridesonline .com.cn " 、" forumsolridesonline .net.cn "、" forumsolridesonline .org.cn " domain names etc.., they are in China domain names. But after checking it, we find "forumsolridesonline " 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

    I never received anything like that. I would suggest it's a scam. IMO, it's tantamount to mail addressed to " Or Current Resident".

    Well I do have a very good antivirus program that runs constantly, I did not reply to it, just figured it might have a connection to this forum because of the content, it was directed at my e-mail, not one that was sent to a bunch of other e-mails like spam, just at mine from the address listed, kinda reminds me of those e-mails that were circulating about "we have money for you and we need information", I have deleted it anyhow, just curious.

    Not sure why they thought you were the contact person for the site


    These goons basically send out mass email spam to domain (URL) and business owners telling them that they need to buy international domains (.cn / .de / .in / etc..)...

    Long story short, it's unethical practice and garbage emails but typically harmless (typically)

    You Will Respect My Authoritah!!
