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,
UD

As far as I know this is purely a scam to make you buy Asian domain names in some vague attempt to protect your name.
It's been happening for at least 10 years that I know of. You don't need to do anything.

You can find more details here (and you'll see how similar they all are).

Ignore them in future.

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."
