You Tried This Already
In October of last year, a “Chinese domain name service” contacted me to tell me that there was someone trying to register the domain of this blog- goeskaboominsanejournal to their company and telling me that in order to protect my “brand image” I would need to reigster the name myself. Guess what email I got again this morning? Yep. Same exact content as before, from the same exact guy with the same exact email address. Seriously? They must think I'm dumb as a rock. Well, I guess I can't blame them since the first time I got the email I fell for it and actually responded to it like it was legitimate.
Jim from the Shanghai Branch Office- like I said before, I don't wish you any ill will, but I'm not going to fall for this fraud. Everyone who's ever studied the Internet knows that in general you cannot register a domain name in a country that is not the one they live in, especially for personal use. You're not going to convince me otherwise. Fool me once and all that.
