Dear CEO,
 
We are the department of registration service in China. we have something which needs to confirm with you. We formally received an application on Aug.,  18th, 2010, One company called " Wasco Brands, Inc " is applying to register a similar domain name as brand name.
 
 
After our initial checking, we found the brand name and domain names being applied are as same as your company! So we need confirmation with your company. If the aforementioned company is your business partner or your subsidiary, please DO NOT reply us, we will approve the application automatically. If you don't have any relationship with this company, please contact us within 7 workdays. If over the deadline, we will approve the application submitted by " Wasco Brands, Inc " unconditionally.
 
Best Regards,

this sounds like spam to me, personally I would just delete it. If it is legit and as important as they would like you to think, the company should make more than one attempt to contact you, say by phone for example, but to me this looks like a scare email.

I would not worry about spam mail such as what you receive, if it was legit they would know the name of the CEO of your company. There are many crazy people out there trying to scam information by unwary individuals.
