Dear CEO,
(If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO, because this is urgent, Thanks)

We are a Network Service Company which is the domain name registration center in Shanghai, China.

We received an application from Huayin Ltd on October 9, 2015. They want to register " slimeware " as their Internet Keyword and " slimeware .cn "、" slimeware .com.cn " 、" slimeware .net.cn "、" slimeware .org.cn " 、" slimeware .asia " domain names etc.., they are in China and Asia domain names. But after checking it, we find " slimeware " 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,

Slimeware.com is an ancient site of mine that parodies adware companies. I doubt very much that anyone is trying to use this as a domain name for a legitimate business, and I couldn't care less if they did anyway. In fact, what is happening here is that the scammer "Jim Bing" (is he related to Terry Google?) is just trying to get you to panic and buy and overpriced and worthless domain name.

It's a pretty common scam, and I have explained the basics in the video below..
