Domain name blocking

Chinese domain registration contacted me that some guys want to register their business with my name on 5 diferent domain names: .cn, .asia, ,asia.cn etc.
The sort my consect to know if I was one of them. I told them I do not know them. Suprising ly here is the email I got from the folks this morning:

Dear Sirs,

Our company based in chinese office, our company has submitted the " spenigeriacouncil " as CN/ASIA(.asia/.cn/.com.cn/.net.cn/.org.cn) domain name and Internet Keyword, we are waiting for Mr. Jim's approval. We think these names are very important for our business in Chinese and Asia market. Even though Mr. Jim advises us to change another name, we will persist in this name.

Best regards



Kindly advice me what to do to stop these guys.
Regards,

When I get one of these, I tell them "Go ahead, we have no interest in APNIC areas and it'll cost you ten bucks a year to cybersquat it."

"We think these names are very important for our business in Chinese and Asia market. Even though Mr. Jim advises us to change another name, we will persist in this name."  This is a clear threat by the scammer to cybersquat on the domain names.
