Website name owners, be aware of fraudulent Chinese domain name registration emails like the one below that came from the fake website chinaregistryshanghai.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.

(Please forward this to your CEO, because this is urgent. Thanks)
This is a formal email. We are the Domain Registration Service company in China. Here I have something to confirm with you. On Sept 30, 2019, we received an application from Kangwei Ltd requested "" as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names (.cn, .com.cn, .net.cn, .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 business partner in China?
