    Sounds like a money scam, I would ignore the email and just move on with what you were doing. ;)

    Ignore it, scammers.

    China has no regulation of .net, .com or .org. All three are under U.S. control.

    100% just ignore it. If it's a real notice they'll contact you via more legal avenues

    China doesn't recognize trademark laws. That's why they produce so many replicas.

    Disregard it.

    Got similar emails sent to 3 clients last year. It's a total scam. I even got some guys in the uk running the same scam last year.

    They hit more than one client in the same week. I got them on the ignore and had it out with them. They hung up and stooped taking calls from me.

    We have a company in canada that runs a similar scam called the domain registry of canada.

    Just ignore it.

    They just want to sell you the .cn domain for your keyword at an inflated price.

    Answer them that according to US laws the Asian domains belongs to you, and that you demand ownership over them + monetary compensation for trademark infringement.

    I mean, WTF, you got a chance to troll some, use it. :)

    LOL! That would be interesting!
    I agree it sounded scammy right from the beginning, but it's good to have so many confirmations...

    I've even got scams like this in the post office box before. The real ones will come from a lawyers office and I've got those before to.

    Yeh I also received a similar email for one of my domains. A follow up email was also sent and basically trying to find people gullible enough to be scared that other companies will claim rights to your domain. It basically is a sales pitch to sell the .cn as Hamish11 stated earlier.

    Just ignore them and don't be fooled unless you really want that domain at their price.
