Beware of "www.chinaregistry.com.cn" - it is a Fake CN and ASIA Domain Name Registration Website

Domain name owners be aware of fraudulent Chinese domain name registration emails like the one below that came from the fake website "www.chinaregistry.com.cn". The fraudulent email messages should not be responded to, especially with personal or financial information. And, the instructions in the same fraudulent email messages should not be followed. Every month, thousands of these email messages are sent out by scammers to trick website owners into paying them for a fraudulent service, which the scammers claim will be used to purchase their Chinese (.CN) domain names.

Please continue below.

A Fraudulent Chinese Domain Name Registration Email Message from www.chinaregistry.com.cn

Subject: onlinethreatalerts CN domain and keyword

Date: Tue 10/10/2017 11:17

From: shawn@chinaregistry.com.cn

(Please forward this to your CEO, because this is urgent. Thanks)

This email is from China domain name registration center, which mainly deal with the domain name registration in China. On Oct 9, 2017, we received an application from Huikai Ltd requested "onlinethreatalerts" as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names (onlinethreatalerts.cn, onlinethreatalerts.com.cn, onlinethreatalerts.net.cn, onlinethreatalerts.org.cn). But after checking it, we find this name conflict with your company name or trademark. In order to deal with this matter better, it's necessary to send email to you and confirm whether your company is affiliated with this Chinese company or not?

Best Regards,

Shawn Zhang | Service & Operations Manager

    Dear all,

    What should we do if we have shared the personal information?

    Best regards,

      Just be careful going forward because the scammers will contact you and attempt to scam you.

    OMG! This has happened to us here in Brazil too. After this Thomas Liu indicates a Chinese company is competing for our tradename domains and "keyword".

    Another message came to us from a pretending person of this HuikaI Ltd to make threat even more realistic:

    "To whom it concerns, we will register the China domain names "e*sys.cn" "e*sys.com.cn" "e*sys.net.cn" "e*sys.org.cn" and internet keyword "e*sys" and have submitted our application. We are waiting for Mr. Thomas Liu's approval and think these CN domains and internet keyword are very important for our business. Even though Mr. Thomas Liu advised us to change another name, we will persist in this name. Kind regards. Gareth Ning".

    We also asked for forms and prices in a suspicious way. Now we now know it's another fraud!

    Many, many thanks. Our message came from a Daniel Liu. I did respond and was told that the company was still going to pursue getting our site name because we are not "registered" in China. They are also intending to use the "internet word" which is supposed to be like a keyword.

    I asked him to send us information and rates for registration, already suspicious of the intent.

    We also found the site that the Registry uses and it looks very real ... too real for my partner's radar.

    When I searched for the company that supposedly wants our name, I also found this site's listing. Just in time!

    Thanks for all you do for all of us. <*G*>

      I received the same mail so I contacted the guy by calling him on the number in the email. He didn't even speak or understand English. Therefore, I searched for HuikaI Ltd and found this link! Thanks so much.

    What should I do if I responded to this, without sharing personal info?


    • Posted: Oct 27, 2017 by info

      The scammers will continue to send you more scams.

    Hi, I received such an email, too. In my German blog I wrote an article about this. Looks like a strange behavior.


  • Posted: Oct 26, 2017 by an anonymous user from or near: Laren, North Holland, Netherlands

    The mail we received, came from chinaregistry.org.cn (not the .com.cn). Which one is right?


    • Posted: Oct 26, 2017 by info

      Both are scams.
