Some weeks ago I received an unusual email that turned out to be a Chinese domain scam. I became aware of this by an online search for the sender of the email. His name was listed on a very useful website explaining the fraud and containing a lot of scammers‘ names and their contact data. As the site recommended, I told its webmaster Christopher Hofman Laursen about the message I had got.
Today he emailed to me and asked to spread the following information: „We are hitting the Chinese domain scammers hard with the scammer list at scam.europeandomaincentre.com. So hard that one of them has just sent me this threat below. This just shows what kind of people we are dealing with. Do share this in your network, so we can put an end to their gangster methods,“ wrote Laursen.
Voilà, here is the intimidating email. Its content is as bad as its grammar:
Currently,we found your company has sent lots of bad information to our company which has already brought bad effects for our reputation.Hence,we hope your company can stop this action to us,and kindly delete the bad information.
