710 Study San Rafael Neighborhood Posts.com Domain Name Attempted Takeover by the Chinese

By Peggy Drouet: I received this email this morning form Jim Wang:

Dear Manager,
(If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO,Thanks)
This email is from China domain name registration center, which mainly deal with the domain name registration and dispute internationally in China.
We received an application from Huayuan Ltd on March 10, 2014. They want to register " 710studysanrafaelneighborhoodposts " as their Internet Keyword and " 710studysanrafaelneighborhoodposts .cn "、" 710studysanrafaelneighborhoodposts .com.cn " 、" 710studysanrafaelneighborhoodposts .net.cn "、" 710studysanrafaelneighborhoodposts .org.cn " domain names etc.., they are in China domain names. But after checking it, we find "710studysanrafaelneighborhoodposts " conflicts with your company. In order to deal with this matter better, so we send you email and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China or not?

Best Regards,
General Manager

My reply:

710studysanrafaelneighborhoodposts.com is registered as my domain name under my name alone. I have nothing to do with any distributor or business partner in China or anywhere else. That Huayuan Ltd requested to register under this domain name is illegal or some kind of scam. Do not register any of the domain names that they requested. Thank you.

Update:  I am looking up Chinese domain name scams on the internet. The email follows the wording in these scams but the scams listed all ask for money for you to keep your domain name. The email I got didn't so that is curious. I have received a couple of the scam emails previously but they all asked for money so I could keep my domain name for another blog I had. Maybe they will ask for money in their next email.
