Question Volcafe.asia Intellectual Property Protection

I have owned the domain abouttrust.com for a few years now, oddly enough I got the following email today in my spam folder...

Opinions on whether they really want my OK for this other dude to register these domains or are they just trying to sell me abouttrust domain in other extensions?

Anybody else received contact from this place before?

(abouttrust)Notice of Intellectual Property Protection 2010-4-3
Joy to mj

Dear Sir/Madam


I'm sorry to disturb you so abrupt. We are a domain name registration service company in Asia,

On 30th March. we received a formal application submitted by Mr. John Sun who wanted to use the keyword "abouttrust" to register the Internet Brand and with suffix such as .cn /.com.cn /.net.cn/.hk/.asia/ domain names.
After our initial examination, we found that these domain names to be applied for registration are same as your domain name and trademark. We aren't sure whether you have any relation with him. Because these domain names would produce possible dispute, now we have hold down his registration, but if we do not get your company's an reply in the next 5 working days, we will approve his application

As authorized anti-cybersquatting organization we hereby suspect Mr. John Sun is a domain investor. so we need you to attach importance to this issue.

In order to handle this issue better, Please contact us by Fax ,Telephone or Email as soon as possible.


Yours sincerely         2010-4-3

Re: Volcafe.asia Intellectual Property Protection

I've had a few like this in the past - where someone has received an application to register the .com.cn version of my .com, and they are letting me know so that if I want, they will let me register them domain with them instead - how nice of them !!

There was probably a reason why this one went straight to your spam folder.

Alex

Yep. Get them all the time.

There is no Mr John Sun. He's a figment of their imagination.

This is a very old trick used by registration companies to get their crap extensions sold.
