China .CN Domain Name Registration Scams

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.

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

    "Hello,

    we also get this scam:

    VizadoCiny.cz - Zpráva z formuláře (11.04.2020 18:12:32)

    Jméno: Kevin Liu

    E-mail: kevin@chinaregistry.org.cn

    Dotaz: (Please kindly forward this message to your CEO, because this is urgent. Thanks)

    This email is from China domain name registration center, which mainly deal with the domain name registration in China. On 12-04-2020, we received an application from Hongbo Ltd requested &quot;vizadociny&quot; as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names (vizadociny.cn, vizadociny.com.cn, vizadociny.net.cn, vizadociny.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 this message to your company and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China?

    Best Regards

    Kevin Liu | Service &amp; Operations Manager China Registry (Head Office) | 6012, XingdI Building, No. 1698 Yishan Road, ShanghaI 201103, China

    Tel: 86-02161918696 | Fax: 86-02161918697 | Mob: 86-13816428671

    Email: kevin@chinaregistry.org.cn

    Web: www.chinaregistry.org.cn

    After I answered to them that we do not know Hongbo Ltd company and that they are not our partners / distributor I got another e-mail from: Gareth Ning <garethning@gmail.com>

    To whom it concerns,

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

    Kind regards

    Gareth Ning"
