China .CN Domain Name Registration Scams

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.

A China .CN Domain Name Registration Scam

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

    Is there a way to get rid of them, after once answering their E-Mail (without clicking on any links)?

    Is it enough to ignore and delete?

      Try flagging the email as spam so they go directly to your spam folder.

    (It's very urgent, therefore we kindly ask you to forward this email to your CEO. If you believe this has been sent to you in error, please ignore it. Thanks)

    Dear CEO,

    This is a formal email. We are the Domain Registration Service company in China. Here I have something to confirm with you. On July 8, 2020, we received an application from Hongxin Ltd requested "rcplanes" as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names (rcplanes.cn, rcplanes.com.cn, rcplanes.net.cn, rcplanes.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 your distributor in China?

    Best Regards
