Would you share this Article with others?

Scammers are sending out fake Chinese domain name registration emails like the one below. The scammers claim an application for the recipients' ".cn" domain name has been made and are giving the recipients a chance to register the top-level domain name because it is important to their business.

But, all the scammers will do, is trick their potential victims into visiting a fake domain name registration website where they will trick them into signing up for a fake domain registration service. Not only will the victims be charges for a service that doesn't exist, but their credit card information will also be stolen.

Subject: [domain name]

To whom it concerns,

We will register the China domain names "[domain name].cn" "[domain name].com.cn" "[domain name].net.cn" "[domain name].org.cn" and internet keyword "[domain name]" and have submitted our application. We are waiting for Mr. David Liu's approval and think these CN domains and internet keyword are very important for our business. Even though Mr. David Liu advised us to change another name, we will persist in this name.

Kind regards

Gareth Ning
