New email scam – lookout

Hi all,

So over the last 2 weeks a client of mine and myself have received some emails from a Thomas Liu who is contacting on behalf of the China Registry. This email is a scam.

“Thomas” emailed my client claiming to be acting for a Chinese company that wanted to use keywords and trademarks that were identical to my clients. However “Thomas” was claiming that it would all be under Chinese website domains etc.

He requested that since there was a conflict, that you email him back to notify if you have any affiliation with this Chinese company. Eventually some emails would go back & forth from “Thomas” and his “co-workers” with the last outcome being that you buy either some Chinese domains to “protect” your keywords/business website.

Keep a look out for any emails of these kind and delete them straight away.

Remember – when in doubt, throw them out.
