Scam: Trademarkdns / HongKong NewName

Recently received this e-mail from HongKong NewName. Looks like they have a long history of trying to scam people. I would not reply to the e-mail. The bad english in the last line makes me think they would try and use the reply e-mail as a domain transfer authorization.

Did you get a similar e-mail? Leave a note in the comments below.

Dear Manager

We are HongKong NewName Net Service Limited, an Service 
organization of Internet in China.

On April 27, 2011, we received an application from Shanghai 
XingBang Electronics Co., Ltd.

requested (yourDomainNameHere) as their internet brand 
and China (CN) domain names. But after checking it, we 
find this name conflict with your company name or trademark. 
In order to deal with this matter better, it's necessary to send 
email to you and confirm whether this company is your distributor 
or business partner in United States?

Or is your company is authorized Bangni Distributors, Inc. 
to register these domain names?

Kind Regards,

Emma Lan
