Beware of emails from China Net Technology Limited

May 15, 2008

A client of ours forwarded us an email from China Net Technology Limited asking us if we thought it was legitimate. The email is purporting to be querying the breach of a foreign trade mark in China along the lines of this:

We are the department of registration service in ASIA  . I have something need to confirm with you. We have received an application formally, one company named “YingQuan Holdings Limited” applies for…

I looked up cnirc.hk on Google and discovered a previously (to me) unknown feature of Google. I got a nice little warning in the search listings saying: “This site may harm your computer”—thanks Google.

Anyway, to answer my client’s question, I’d say this is definitely spam.

    Just had 2 of these today. They even sent one to one of our international distributors who forwarded it to us.

    Here is the reply from a previous scam in Jan 08 before we found out it was a scam.

    Dear Joe,

    Thank you for your letters in reply.

    We knew you have registered the domain name “blueprintskateboards.com” and own the intellectual property (own the trademark blueprintskateboards). This is why we informed you. But now Goodwood Holdings Limited Company wanted to apply for other domain names and internet brand you have not registered yet.

    Just because of your registered trademark, so we inform of your company.But the domain names registration is open in the world. This is international domain name registration principle.We are only a domain name registration organization in Asia, We have no right to prevent other people’s registration.So required by Asia government to inform your company to protect your interest. As the company whose trademarks relate to the applied domains, you will get the priority to register these domain names and Internet brand keyword.As a domain name registrationorganization authorized by Asia government. I must informed you this matter.

    If you think these domain names and Internet brand name are useful for you, we can send an application form to you and help you register these within dispute period.You can choose domain names which are important and useful for you company. if you give these domain names up. then we will pass their application immediately.

    I look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions, pls call me.

    Best Regards,

    Juliana Fu
