Chinese Domain Scam - Register Now or Else

I received the unethical blackmail email below, which upon doing some research is a scam. Here is a telling blog entry on the same with hundreds of non-victims compleat with saucy-yet-puerile rebuttals from the scammers.

Report the China Domain Scammers to CNNIC


I reported this to the NIC in China - CNNIC and to the Hong Kong Police Technology Crimes division. If you receive a mail with a subject line similar to "Subject: URGENT --dispute of internet intellectual property safeguard", forward it along to CNNIC who controls the registrars in China. Here is the contact info from CNNIC's website:

Just what we need. More scammers and spammers.

Please Note - Christopher Laursen writes to mention:

I have created the largest online database of Chinese domain name
scammers. 
To date more than 200 scammers and 670 email addresses used by them. 
It would be great if you would refer to it, so we can warn others'
about this scam and reduce the number of victims. 
You can find the scammer list at the URL http://scam.europeandomaincentre.com
Best Regards
Christopher Hofman Laursen
