Don't Fall For It. It's a Scam!

Dear Manager,
(If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO,Thanks)

We are a organization specializing in network consulting and registration in China. Here we have something to confirm with you. We just received an application sent from "MaDon Importing Co., Ltd" on 12/04/2014, requesting for applying the "lindamooney" as the Internet Brand and the following domain names for their business running in China region:


Through our preliminary review and verification, we found that this name is currently being used by your company and is applied as your domain name. In order to avoid any potential risks in terms of domain name dispute and impact on your market businesses in China and Asia in future, we need to confirm with you whether "MaDon Importing Co., Ltd" is your own subsidiary or partner, whether the registration of the listed domains would bring any impact on you. If no impact on you, we will go on with the registration at once. If you have no relationship with "MaDon Importing Co., Ltd" and the registration would bring some impact on you, Please contact us immediately within 10 working days, otherwise, you will be deemed as waived by default. We will unconditionally finish the registration for "MaDon Importing Co., Ltd"

Please contact us in time in order that we can handle this issue better.

Best Regards,

James Tan

This is the second email I've received within a year, basically telling me they were going to use my domain name for their business. I am registered with GoDaddy, and my site is secured.

If you get this email, or one like it, ignore it. It's a flat-out spam and scam.
