Here is the email we received: 


Dear Sir/Madam,

We would like to inform you that we have received a registration request (from someone outside of your organisation) for However, our system shows that you are the current owner of We would like to give you an update about this manner.

 If the request is continued, this may have consequences for your company. Your customers may get confused as another company uses the exact same name, but with a different extension.

 Therefore, we give you this one-time offer to register this name for yourselves. If you agree, we will link to

 The costs for this name amount to CA$29.95 per year. As a trademark authority we will register the name for a period of 10 years, meaning you will pay a one-off fee of CA$299.50. Your name will be protected and registered for this period of time. Afterwards you may extend it with the same period of time.

Do you agree to our one-time offer? Then please send your business name, business address and name (contact person) to this email address. We will reject the applicant and link this name to your current website.

 I am looking forward to your reply.

Kind regards,

Ryan MacDonald

We expect that if you fall for this, you will be billed $299.50 and the company at best would buy that domain name for one year and redirect it to your website. Odds are, a year later the domain name would expire, and the company that took your money will be out of business. 

Note: You can do the same thing for about $20 per year via any registar.
