    Hey guys not sure if this happened to anybody yet. I just got an email from Registration Department Manager from china stating that some company would like to register .cn and .com.cn with the same name that i use for one of my blog name with .com extension. So they said that because this company is trying to register these domains with the same name that i have they are asking me since they say i am the owner of that name. They want to know if i want to go ahead and register those domains first. I was wondering if i should go ahead and tell them that i want to register those domains and then who knows what happens next. Was wondering if anybody experienced this before. I hope this make sense. Thank you guys

    It's likely a scam, they're just trying to get you to spend money. I've even gotten bills from companies telling me it's time to renew my domains -- from companies that aren't' even my host!
