Subject:     Regarding "[redacted]" Cn domain name and 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.
We received an application from Huaxiang Ltd on September 7, 2013. They want to register " [redacted] " as their Internet Keyword and " [redacted] .cn "、" [redacted] .com.cn " 、" [redacted] .net.cn "、" [redacted] .org.cn " domain names etc.., they are in China domain names. But after checking it, we find " [redacted] " 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

The whole thing is a fraud. Nobody in China is trying to register your domain name, and in any case registrars are not responsible for checking. They are simply trying to make you panic and buy an overpriced domain that you do not need and will never use.

Please can someone help me? Two companies have stolen money from a charity I run I have informed the Police but as you might except they are less than useless I have little or no chance of getting the charities money back, so could someone take down their two web sits to stop them stealing again.
