Network Trademark Domain Registration Scam

Category: Uncategorized| 38 Comments »

A number of my clients have been receiving emails similar to the two below:

From the similarity of these and others mentioned in the comments below, as well as from reading other blogs (url’s at the bottom of this page) it seems that these are an attempt to try scare you into purchasing domain names you may not want, through these companies at vastly inflated prices.

If you are really worried I suggest you get legal advice but there is nothing to stop you purchasing any available domain names yourself, either through a reputable domain name provider or a web design agency.

There many other sources on this subject via the links lower down this page…

Dear CEO & Principal,

We are a domain name registration and dispute organization in Asia, which mainly deal with the global companies’ domain name registration and internet Intellectual property right protection in Asia. Currently, we have a pretty important issue needing to confirm with your company.

On October 28st, 2009, we received an application formally. One company named “Lushui Holdings Ltd” wanted to applied for the network trademark “—hidden company name— ” and some domain names through our body.

Now we are handling with the registration of these domain names and find that the Trademark of these domain names and network trademark is identical with your company’s. So we have to confirm with you at two points:

1. If your company consign Lushui company to register these domain names and network trademark , we will send application form to them and help them finish the registration at once.
2. If your company have nothing to do with Lushui company, they maybe have other purposes to register these domain names and network trademark .

In order to deal with this issue better, please contact us by email or telephone ASAP.

Dear President&CEO,

We are a professional intellectual property right consultant organization in Asia, who mainly deal with the global domain name registration and internet intellectual property right protection.
Right now we have an important issue to confirm with you. On Dec 15, 2009, we formally received an application, one company named “Shijia AP company” applied for the internet keyword “Mexel” and following domain names:
“—hidden URL’s— ”
with our organization.
During our preliminary investigation, we found that these domain names’ keyword is identical with your trademark. I wonder whether you consigned Shijia company to register these domain names with us? Or is Shijia company your business partner or distributor in Asia? If you have no relationship with this company, we assume that they have other purposes to obtain these domain names.
Currently, we have already postponed this company’s application temporarily. Therefore please let the relevant person make a confirmation with me by telephone or email as soon as possible.

Thanks & Regards,

    . Please send your passage saying our company with scam to me,I will transfer this mail with your passage to our legal deparment

    Cheeky git.


  32. We did receive one of those mails last week.

    Dear Marcos Riera,

    Thank you very much for your reply! If so, I suggest you register the Network brand.
    Network brand is the protection of the trademark in the internet, also it’s the part of the IP rights. Secondly it can be used for searching your company’s information and brings the benefits to your company in the internet. Once your company complete Network Brand, Chinese government will issue the certificate when you formally finish the registration, and it is unique for an company in the internet, about all of the innfish registered domain name is protected, other people will not be able to use and not try to register, so it can protect your company’s intellectual property rights from infringement. But it can only protect the domain name, but it can not be used. If you want to use those name in the internet, you should register them.They are equally important!
    Please conform, if you want to register we can send the dispute application form to help you!

    Yours sincerely,

    Sherry She (Mr.)

    Now we are handling this registration, and after our initial checking, we found the name were similar to your company’s, so we need to check with you whether your company has authorized that company to register these names. If you authorized this, we would finish the registration at once. If you did not authorize, please let us know within 7 workdays, so that we could handle this issue better. After the deadline we will unconditionally finish the registration for “Kin Industrial Co. Ltd”. Looking forward to your prompt reply.

  35. Just got this and it seems like the phone numbers in the email received are already here in an older comment :) ) – fail

    (Please kindly forward to CEO or President who would be concerned about the Trademark. Thank you.)

    Dear President & CEO,

    We are a law office for IPR registration about the International Trademark, Domains and Copyrights etc in Asia. We have something to confirm with you. We received a formal application from a company who is called John Investment Co., Ltd on August 5, 2013. They want to register the following keyword International Trademark and Domains:

    International Trademark:
    XXXX
    ?
    Domain Name:
    XXXXXX.ASIA/.CN/.COM.CN/.CO.JP/.CO.IN/.CO.KR/.COM.TW/.COM.HK

    If a company applies so many domains and trademark we’ll carefully check to prevent malicious registration.After our audit procedure, we found that the keyword is your company’s registered name, but it is not International Trademark. Because trademark of different countries and domains of different suffixes have become the most active area of investment. We must confirm that whether you have authorized John Investment Co., Ltd applying for the above International Trademark and Domains. If so, we will finish the registration at once; if not, avoid this registration brings the loss to your company, please contact us by telephone or email within 7 workdays, after that we will decide next steps.

    Best Regards,
