    is this a scam?


    if so what's the angle?


    sell me domains? or just get my email?


    never seen this one before...



    (my site name, other company's name, and registrar mentioned all removed to avoid outing both my info and theirs)


    via email to [email protected]

    This is a marketing email
    They grab emails from whois database and send spam to any whatever.com and they say if you want to keep your brand in china register whatever.cn as well.

    if you have to ask 'is this a scam?' then most likely it's a scam.
