    I'm pleased you love making useless posts. I've reported your new spam account.

    @OP - forget it. Hand over the domain and write off the cost of experience. Do not buy trademarked domains - just because it's available to register doesn't mean it's lawfully available to use :)

    Do not enter into communication with them as they've requested - simply remove the references that infringe upon their trademark. If the domain name itself contains the trademark in whole or in part, you need to stop using the domain name, too.

    I genuinely hope you didn't pay an amount that is big to you... but take that as a cost of a lesson and move on :)

    Why don't you simply create a brand new site and rank? You don't need to duplicate the previous site

    Just resell the domain, it's not worth keeping it, it may get you in big trouble.

    Anytime you buy a trademarked domain you need to do it using bitcoin under an alias if you want it
    bad enough. That way if you get a cease and desist letter it's not like you are liable. However you need
    to consider if it's even worth it in the first place.

    Just change the niche. .com isn't a geographic TLD so if no one would confuse you (you sell auto parts and they do mothering advice) then no harm no foul.
