I received an email from company like this. What should I do for this.  I am confused.

------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear CEO & Principal              
 
We are a domain name registration and dispute organization in Asia, which mainly deal with the global companies' domain name registration and internet Intellectual property right protection in Asia. Currently, we have a pretty important issue needing to confirm with your company.
 
On Jul 8, 2009, we received an application formally. One company named "FYP Holdings Ltd" wanted to applied for the internet keyword "Boscoinfotech" and some domain names through our body.
 
Now we are handling with the registration of these domain names and find that the keyword of these domain names and internet keyword is identical with your  company's. So we have to confirm with you at two points:

1. If your company consign FYP Holdings to register these domain names and internet keyword, we will send application form to them and help them finish the  registration at once.
2. If your company have nothing to do with FYP Holdings, they maybe have other purposes to register these domain names and internet keyword.
 
In order to deal with this issue better, please contact us by email or telephone ASAP

I've seen these before and usually they are a scam. Go tohttp://whois.domaintools.com/ and type in the web address. It will tell you who owns it, when it expires and so forth. They are trying to scare you into buying a bogus service

There is no email mentioned there. They are just asking if his company is related to that company. Nothing else.

I don't think I understand what your question is. They asked you something. You should answer or ignore it. It's up to you. You (or your company) are the only one who can answer that.

Looking at the site Darksquire put here, it is "sort" of a scam. They tell you someone is trying to register a domain name like your company name. If you fall into it, you register with them that domain.
