Today one of client recieved an email from on domain registration company in China that someone is trying to register domain names similar to mine and asking us if they should be allowed to register them.
The game is if we response that dont allow anyone to register the domain then the fake chinese company will ask us to register all the domains in different extensions. And the worst they will charge us extremely high rates. And even more they may save the credit card information and misuse it.
Below is the mail received by my client. I responsed by asking them not to allow anyone to register. I am waiting to see what will be the response.
