Domain Name Scam.

We have had this scam before. We spend a lot of time issuing Scam Alerts for frauds targeted at individual investors, but for once here is a scam targeted at businesses. It’s basically a domain name blackmail operation. If we were to reply to this email below they would know that we are interested and would ask for a lot of money to “protect” our brand name in Hong Kong or China. If we then decide not to pay them they would buy up the brand name / domain name and then claim that scammers have bought it and they can get it back for a large fee. They would already know that we were concerned.  Domain names in HK and China are cheap.  We couldn’t care less because we’re wise to it, but some bigger brands or small businesses might be concerned about receiving this email and be tempted to respond. There’s no doubt that China is a big market for some companies, but they should ignore this email if they receive it.

Here is the email we received.

Dear President or CEO,

 Please read this letter carefully since this is an urgent case. Recently, we received the registration request from FeiYu Global Ltd applying to register safeorscam brand and domain names(cn hk etc), which have same main body as your company’s name. We send this letter to confirm with your company whether or not you authorize them to register those names. Please give me your thoughts ASAP so as to let us carry on, Thanks.

Best Regards,

Lynn Du
