Beware of "www.cnregistry.org.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.cnregistry.org.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.

A Fraudulent Chinese Domain Name Registration Emails from www.cnregistry.org.cn

Onderwerp: xxx CN domain and keyword

(If you are NOT CEO, please forward this to your CEO, because this is urgent. Thanks)

We are the domain registration and solution center in China. On May 10, 2018 , we received an application from Kaixin Ltd requested "xxx" as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names (xxx.cn, xxx.com.cn, xxx.net.cn, xxx.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 this company is associated with your company or not?

Best Regards,

Thomas Liu | Service & Operations Manager

To whom it concerns,

We will register the China domain names "xxx.cn" "xxx.com.cn" "xxx.net.cn" "xxx.org.cn" and internet keyword "xxx" 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 Jing

    Thank you for the warning! We were approached by the same guys, with the same exact email messages. I was alerted when "Steve" sent us an application form to fill to protect our keyword/domain.

    I got the same as the above. I blocked them now, so I don't receive these scam mails anymore.
