Email #2 also today

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 in China. We received an application from kenpo Ltd on March 25th, 2013. They want to register “wildhorse” as their internet keyword and China/Asia (CN/ASIA) domain names. But after checking it, we find this name 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,

Abby Wang

I thought I would share these two with you all, there are many more but today was just one of those days that I felt like sharing the info with you, my friends on WHISNews21. I am sure you also receive mails similar to these and feel the same. Then we all know that this will continue as unfortunately some people fall for these cons and actually get caught, shame, shame, shame……



No Comments to Are You Also Sick and Tired Of Internet Conmen ?

  1. Hi, that’s interesting… I just received a similar email from China. What I’d like to know is how do you know they are a con? The website is apparently a company that registers domain names in China…. (naive am I lol?). I also received a subsequent introductory email from ******* saying they are waiting for the go ahead from ******** because they want to use my domain name but in China even though they were advised to change it…… (perhaps to make it sound more legit.?)

  2. Hello, I received the same email a couple of days ago. I believe they are a con after reading yours. I wonder how many keywords do they want to register? Yours is wildhorse, mine is sandizasnest and many more I suppose.
    Here is the email that I received, identical word for word except for the “keyword”:
