We have recently received several emails from easyfa.org which fits into the classic domain scam so we wanted to report it for the safety and benefit of the others who might fall for the same trick by the same or another company. These are how their emails go:
We are the department of registration service in Asia. Currently, we have a urgent issue needing to confirm with your company.
On Mar 12, 2013, we received an application formally. One company named "Cmyk Management Group" wanted to apply for the Brand Name "xyz" and some domain names through our body.
After our initial checking, we found the Brand name and domain names being applied are as same as your company! So we have to confirm with you at two points:
1. If the aforementioned company is your business partner or your subsidiary, please DO NOT reply us, we will approve the application automatically.
2. If your company have nothing to do with the aforementioned company, they maybe have other purposes to register the Brand name and domain names.
Currently, we have postponed this application of this company temporarily already. In order to deal with this issue better, please let the responsible officer contact us as soon as possible.
Many thanks for your confirmation. I reply you as following several aspects:
1> We knew you have registered the domain name "xyz.com", this is why we informed you. But now they wanted to apply for other domain names and Brand Name. Following are all the domain names and Brand Name which are submitted by "Cmyk Management Group":
xyz.hk Hong Kong
xyz.co.uk United Kingdom
xyz.eu European Union
2> If you don't have any relationship with "Cmyk Management Group". According to our working experience, either they invest in domain names, just like someone registered google.cn&google.com.cn to get high reward several years ago, or they do the same business as you, so to confuse your customers and get profit.
3> As a domain name registry service organization, we have no right to reject any individual or entity to register these domain names through our body, Because domain name registry is open all over the world, that means "who register first, who own first". But we should perform responsibility to avoid this cyber squatting. We also don't hope any infringement violated to the interests of your company in future. If you think their registration will confuse your clients and harm your profits, you are supposed to secure your company's benefit by registering them preferentially. If you confirmed to do so, please inform me to send a dispute application form to you and we will help you register these within the dispute period. If you don't think their application will affect your company, you can give up, and we will follow up their registration.
Due to limited time, hope get your decision ASAP, if you have any question, pls contact me in time. Thanks for your cooperation.
