Chinese Domain Name Offer is Spam

Have you received an email from a Chinese author claiming someone is trying to register your domain name in the .cn domain name space? Relax, everyone is getting this email. I receive one a week. Please ignore or delete these messages.

On the 30 April 09 the Australian Domain Name Administrator said “auDA is aware that at least two companies apparently based in China and Hong Kong have been sending unsolicited emails to people with .au domain names, attempting to mislead them into registering their name in a number of Asian domain spaces.”

And added “In auDA’s view the claims made in these emails are most likely false and misleading, and we advise people to disregard them.”

So there we have it from the horse’s mouth.
