I received an email today telling me a company is attempting to use my company name to register a .asia domain name. My first call to action was to check with my preferred domain name registrar to see if the .asia name was actually available, which it is. Next I searched to see if there are any rules or restrictions regarding a U.S. based companying owning a .asia domain name. Then finally I decided to search the name of the company attempting to register the .asia domain name. Turns out it is a scam.
This scam almost got me. It wasn’t until I searched the literal LYP International co., Inc that I discovered this insightful blog posting by Joe Wein about domain registration scams coming from China.
Don’t you just love the power of the Internet?
