An email reporting to be from the “Department of Asian Domain Registration Service in China” has been received by several local companies.
The information in the email varies (there are several versions making the rounds) but it boils down to their domain name service has received an application for registration of a domain name (website) as the local company’s, and asks the local company to contact them. When they get you on the phone, they will request an extreme amount of money in order to ‘register’ your domain name with them.
Other than some small grammar errors, the email actually looks slightly legitimate.
Don’t fall victim – this is a scam.
Delete the email as soon as you get it.
