Domain Name Scam - YG Registry

I thought I'd post the following email as a warning to others. I've received these before but I'm surprised its still happening. It seems someone in China wants to register alanmedlock as a domain name, presumably because they share my name, pretty unlikely I'd say.

Dear Manager,(If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO,Thanks)This email is from China domain name registration center, which mainly deal with the domain name registration and dispute internationally in China. We received an application from Huake Ltd on December 15, 2014. They want to register " alanmedlock " as their Internet Keyword and " alanmedlock .cn "、" alanmedlock " 、" alanmedlock "、" alanmedlock " domain names etc.., they are in China domain names. But after checking it, we find "alanmedlock " conflicts with your company. In order to deal with this matter better, so we send you email and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China or not?Best Regards,Jim General Manager  Shanghai Office (Head Office) 3002, Nanhai Building, No. 854 Nandan Road, Xuhui District, Shanghai 200070, China Tel: +86 216191 8696 Mobile: +86 1870199 4951  Fax: +86 216191 8697 Web:

If you get one of these just ignore it. If you reply you will receive an application form to protect your domain name together with a price list. By all accounts the charges can be thousands of dollars. For more info just tap YG Registry into your the search engine and you will see just how busy they are.
