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

Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

Website or domain name owners be aware of fraudulent Chinese website or domain name registration emails like the one below that came from the fake website "www.cnygdomain.com". 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 reading below.

    Here is another scam:

    "From: Mike <mike.zhang@cnygdomain.com>
    Date: 12 Mar 2019, 11:48 AM 1100
    Subject: CN & ASIA () domain and Keyword

    Dear,

    Based on your company having no relationship with them, we have suggested they should choose another name to avoid this conflict but they insist on this name as CN/ASIA domain names ( .asia , .cn, .com.cn, .net.cn, .org.cn) and internet keyword () on the internet. In our opinion, maybe they do the similar business as your company and register it to promote his company.
    According to the domain name registration principle: The domain names and internet keyword which applied based on the international principle are opened to companies as well as individuals. Any companies or individuals have rights to register any domain name and internet keyword which are unregistered.

    Because your company haven't registered this name as CN/ASIA domains and internet keyword on the internet, anyone can obtain them by registration. However, in order to avoid this conflict, the trademark or original name owner has priority to make this registration in our audit period. If your company is the original owner of this name and want to register these CN/ASIA domain names (.asia, .cn, .com.cn, .net.cn, .org.cn) and internet keyword () to prevent anybody from using them, please inform us. We can send an application form with price list to you and help you register these within dispute period. Look forward to your kind reply!
