Someone is trying to register a domain name similar to ours.

As the owner of a domain name, you might be contacted by a company (usually Asian) supposedly involved in domain name registration and intellectual property rights protection, claiming that they received an application from someone trying to register your domain name, or one similar. This is the Asian domain-name extortion scam. You can ignore such messages, because as long as your domain name is locked, no one can take it away from you. Notice how the text of the scammer's message slyly confuses the terms "domain name" and "keyword". Clever, but phony. You can flag such messages as spam, and delete them.
