Hungry Onion domain name cybersquatting?

LOL Yeah yeah whatever. (I just got this)


(Since it is significant, forward the following E-mail to your CEO or
relevant responsible person. Thanks)
Dear CEO/Principal,
We are the department of Asian Domain Registration Service in China. Here I
have something to confirm with you. We formally received an application on May
31, 2016 that a company claimed “HongShan Trade Company” were applying to
register “hungryonion” as their Net Brand and some “hungryonion”
Asian countries top-level domain names through our firm.
Now we are handling this registration, and after our initial checking, we
found the name were similar to your company’s. Since now the cyber-squatting
events and domain name abuse are very serious, in order to avoid such incidents
cause unnecessary loss of benefits to your company. 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 “HongShan Trade Company” Looking forward to your prompt reply.
Best Regards,

Last time I received and email like this all I had to do was send them my SS number so I could receive my reward for helping the over-thrown King & Queen fleeing their African Nation post revolution. (not to sound like a braggart but I’m to be rewarded handsomely for my efforts) :wink:
