Heute kam die vierte Mail nun und ich habe mich grade mit meinem Anwalt beraten. Das war die erste Spam-Mail auf die ich beinahe hereingefallen wäre. Sonst lösche ich diese Mails ja schon ungelesen, aber der hier war zu gut – deshalb halte ich das hier noch mal fest:
Erste Mail:(If you are not in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO, because this is urgent. Thanks) We are a Network Service Company which is the domain name registration center in Shanghai, China. On Jan 4, 2013, we received an application from Huasheng company requested „collaborato“ as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names. But after checking it, we find this name conflict with your company name or trademark. In order to deal with this matter better, it’s necessary to send email to you and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China?
Daraufhin habe ich zurückgeschrieben, dass ich keine Verbindung mit der Firma habe. Daraufhin kam diese Mail:Dear Gunther , Based on your company having no relationship with them, we have suggested they should choose another name to avoid this conflict but they insist on this name as CN domain names (.cn/.cn.com/.com.cn/.net.cn/.org.cn) and internet keyword. In our opinion, maybe they do the similar business as your company and register it to promote his company. According to the domain name registration principle: The domain name and internet keyword which applied based on the international principle are opened to companies as well as individuals. Any companies or individuals have rights to register any domain name and internet keyword which are unregistered. Since your company haven’t registered this name as CN domains and internet keyword on the internet, anyone can obtain them by registration. However, in order to avoid this conflict, the trademark or original name owner has priority in making this registration in our audit period. If your company is the original owner of this name and want to register these CN domain names (.cn/.cn.com/.com.cn/.net.cn/.org.cn) and internet keyword to prevent anybody from using them, please inform us. We can send you an application form with price list and help your company register them.
Und kurz darauf schrieb mir noch die angebliche Firma, dass sie den Namen für wichtig erachten und deshalb trotzdem registrieren: (Name wurde von mir entfernt)We are Huasheng company based in China. We will register the „collaborato“ as internet keyword and China domain names .cn, .cn.com, .com.cn, .net.cn, .org.cn. We have submitted our application and are waiting for Mr. xxxxxxx’s approval. We think this name is important for our business in Chinese market. Even though Mr. xxxxxxxx advises us to change another name, we will persist in this name.
Nach etwas Pause jetzt die nächste Nachricht - wieder vom angeblich Registrar:We have not heard from you since our last comunication. Since your company haven’t registered this name as CN domains (.cn/.cn.com/.com.cn/.net.cn/.org.cn) and internet keyword on the internet, anyone can obtain them by registration. You must know the domain names and internet keyword which applied based on the international principle are opened to companies as well as individuals. Also, we have suggested they should choose another name but they are persistent in this name. As a domain name registrar, we have no rights to refuse their application if they insist. In this situation, we have told you your company have the priorty in registering CN domains and internet keyword in our audit period. Could you tell us whether or not your company want to register these CN domain names and internet keyword to prevent anyone from using them?
Das ganze ist reiner Spam – lt. meinem Anwalt und auch laut der Kollegen in anderen Blogs, also nicht darauf hereinfallen:
In diesem Sinne,
Ihr Günther A. Biebl
