This is how you know you got a good SEO!

When some chinese spammer gets in touch with you about your domain, you know that they have found you somehow.

My guess is that they take LinkedIn as source and they scrape anything in a certain area.

 

Dear Sir or Madam,

We are an agency for registering domain names authorized by Chinese government. Today, our center received an application from WAONG Holdings Ltd applying to register “mustaca” as their brand name and some top-level domain names(.CN .HK etc). After our careful investigation, We found the main body of domain names is same as yours. As a professional registrar, We are obligated to inform you of this situation.

We are handling the application and we need to confirm whether or not you authorize them to register them? Let me know your answer ASAP so as to solve this promptly. Thanks for your cooperation.

Best Regards
Asa Dong

Of course, if you answer, they will probably start negotiating with you about the price to “convince” the other party to not register the domain. Probably also to register the domain for you 🙂
Who needs a mustaca.cn after all ? :))))
