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

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.

Dear CEO,

(If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO, because this is urgent. If this email affects you, we are very sorry, please ignore this email. Thanks)

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

They want to register " nolarae " as their Internet Keyword and " nolarae .cn "、" nolarae .com.cn " 、" nolarae .net.cn "、" nolarae .org.cn " 、" nolarae .asia " domain names, they are in China and Asia domain names. But after checking it, we find " nolarae " 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?

    They have now extended their use case. If you respond that you are not affiliated with the company that "tries to buy" the cn domain associated with yours, you will then get another email from a different account:

    "Dear Sirs,

    Our company based in chinese office, our company has submitted the " xxxxx " as CN/ASIA(xxxxx.asia, xxxxx.cn, xxxxx.com.cn, xxxxx.net.cn, xxxxx.org.cn) domain name and Internet Keyword " xxxxx ", we are waiting for Mr. Mike's approval.

    Wow, thank you for the post. I was thinking to sell my domain to them. The email template is very identical to me, I should have picked this up since the day I received this email is on Sunday. I am a bit disappointed now, however, I think if they replied I will just have a bit fun with them.
