Here I later found someone doing a bit of research on this scam. Apparently this is quite an old scam and as it still is going on it must mean many are caught by it.


  1. what is the scam though? I got this one this morning and they aren't asking for anything... i believe its a scam, but i cant see what it is. its a pretty good one

  2. I received one from it Anhui office as well. My best guess is that they "keep the domain name safe for you firstly" by pending the new application, who knows if there is any, and granting you a priority to purchase the domain names. It looks like a marketing scheme.

  3. I received same name from this same person.. And I've been worried and responding to her...
    Thanks a lot.
