Dear Sir/Madam,
 
About the "surfpci". We are the department of Asian Domain Registration Service in China. Here I have something to confirm with you. We formally received an application on July 28th, 2014 that a company claimed "CanLduny Company" were applying to register "our domain" as their Net Brand and some "our domain" Asian countries top-level domain names through our firm.
 
Now we are handling this registration, and after our initial checking, we found the name were similar to your company's, so we need to check with you whether your company has authorized that company to register these names. If you authorized this, we would finish the registration at once. If you did not authorize, please let us know within 7 workdays, so that we could handle this issue better. After the deadline we will unconditionally finish the registration for "CanLduny Company" Looking forward to your prompt reply.
 
(It's very urgent, so please transfer this email to your CEO or appropriate person. Thanks a lot.)  
 
Best Regards,
John Feng
