If you think his registration will confuse your clients and harm your profits, we can send an application document to you and help you register these domains within our approving period. This is a better way to prevent domain name dispute. If you think his application will not affect your company, you can give up, we will finish his registration. Hope get your decision as soon as possible so that we can handle the next step

Best regards

Your Sincerely

So? Any of you have any idea what I should do next to toy with them?

It's time to "threaten" litigation. Even better if you do it over a small and pointless semantic problem almost completely unrelated to what's going on.

The idea is to make you believe that someone is registering domains similar to ones you already own, then offer you the "opportunity" to register them yourself at an inflated fee. If you do nothing, no domains get registered. All they want is for you to believe that someone is planning to squat on your names so you will buy them. Ignore them. Tell them to FOAD. But never believe that they are in any way, shape or form genuine about anything they say. No (legitimate) registrar will contact you to let you know that someone is registering a name similar to your own. None. They all operate in a reactive manner - they will only act *if* a rights holder notices and decides to take action. They never act proactively.

Of course arb... I know all that. The point is to toy with them.

Seems that slashdot ate the "postfix", I used in my previous entries. ("The .cn scam"). In case you missed it: Original email [slashdot.org] . My reply [slashdot.org] .
