    Well, make sure it's not an extortion, a lot of people out there who send that kind of crap and try to settle with you by saying, ok if you pay this much, then you can keep it, or whatever.

    If you read what that person wrote to you, it doesn't sound like they have any legal background at all, just some dickhead or a competitor of yours, trying to scare you. No one desperately writes like that when pushing for trademark infringements.

    Also, they can register themselves as the trademark in one country, but that doesn't mean they own that trademark internationally, I heard somewhere that a country trademarked like the iwatch or something, and apple bought that right from them, instead of saying "we own your ass".

    I would seek legal counsel if I were you, there are some on fiverr that are pretty useful.

    I've had a company push trademark infringement on me, and I ignored them, and they kept sending me the same letter and I didn't even use all their words, and they wouldnt pursue further legal actions, cause they cant afford it.

    I've seen an example where this company incorporated their business name that is the same as another business name, but put ".com" at the end, and it was a totally different enterprise, and they got away with it. So if you call your company .Asia at the end, and say your an enterprise running in asia, and the company who owns that "limited" corporation operates in america and is registered there, they cant do **** all about it.

    Seek legal counsel and professional advice first, before proceeding with anything.

    Who is the return email address from?
    Having a hard time understanding.
    If it's just some random company I'd just ignore it.
    MOre than likely they have no authority over here.

    It's obvious from the terrible grammar, spelling and punctuation that this is a fake email.

    Totally fake they'll try and get you to buy domains you don't need at hugely inflated prices.
