Beware of Chinese Domain Scams

Category : Email , Info , Real , Share

Hey! Got an Email from China Domain Name Registration Center, Asian Domain Registration Service In China, The Department Of Registration Service In China etc.?

The reason that you have landed here is surely due to an email in your inbox from an Asian named domain name registrar such as:
– China Domain Name Registration Center
– Asian Domain Registration Service In China
– The Department Of Registration Service In China.The subject line is usually something like:

– “urgent brand registration confirmation”
– “Domain dispute and protection”
– “Asia, Cn, Hk domain name and Internet Keyword”
– “Notice of Brand name registration”.
– xxxxxxx Renewal of domains (urgent case742947900)

We’ve all heard of Internet scams to steal your identity, your credit card number, bank account information, etc.  There appears to be a scam that has been occuring at least for the past several months that was brought to my attention today when a local business forwarded us the e-mail I have pasted below.

In the email they probably request you to forward the email to your CEO. There is a sense of urgency, and they want you to quickly react to a supposed third party’s plan to register a list of available domain names infringing your trademark rights. The third party could email you to tell about their plan as well. The email usually comes from Gareth Qi or Gareth Qiao via a hotmail address.

 If you fall for this “offer” you end up paying premium prices for your domain names and they will even throw in a Brand protection product invented for the occassion. Recently they have also send out renewal reminders for non-registered domain names (sneaky, sneaky).

The concerned business owner did not know whether or not this e-mail was legitimate, which if you are not living and breathing the Internet industry everyday like we do here it can oftentimes be difficult to distinguish what’s real and what’s not, especially as scam artists get better and better.

The manager of the local business who contacted us did the right thing by asking.

The e-mail copied below is basically telling the business owner or manager that their “international identity” is in jeopardy because “Company X” has “attempted” to register their domain name with .cn, com.cn, .asia, etc. extensions.  In reality they are just trying to resell domain names with Chinese/Asia extensions.

Unless you intend to do business in Asia or China, there is no reason to have a domain name outside of your US domain name (.com, .net, .org, .co., .us, .gov, etc).

 

The business’ name was replaced with [domainname] to protect confidentiality.

Dear CEO,

(If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO, because this is urgent. If this email affects you, we are very sorry, please ignore this email. Thanks)

We are a Network Service Company which is the domain name registration center in China.
We received an application from Huayi Ltd on December 11, 2016. They want to register ” [domainname] ” as their Internet Keyword and ” [domainname] .cn “、” [domainname] .com.cn ” 、” [domainname] .net.cn “、” [domainname] .org.cn ” 、”[domainname] .asia ” domain names, they are in China and Asia domain names. But after checking it, we find ” [domainname] ” conflicts with your company. In order to deal with this matter better, so we send you email and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China or not?

 

Best Regards,

Ternyata Gmail itu Tidak Aman

Ternyata menggunakan email dari google [gmail] tidak aman

zhorvans.net – Layanan email gratis gari google yang memiliki kapasitas 15 gb, ternyata tidak aman loh. Karena dari sekian banyak pengguna, mereka tidak sadar bahwa karakter titik (.) pada username, diabaikan. Jadi bila ada pengguna yang namanya sama, tetapi beda pada titik (.), maka email tersebut akan mengkonfirmasi sebagai email default.

Ternyata gmail itu tidak aman

Ternyata gmail itu tidak aman

Contohnya: bila kalian mengirimkan email ke alamat thezhorvans@gmail.com maka bila ada pengguna dengan alamat email the.zhorvans@gmail.com pun akan menerima email yang sama dari anda.

Ternyata gmail itu tidak aman

Hal ini baru saya sadari ketika cek email yang sudah lama tidak digunakan, dan ternyata banyak sekali kiriman dari orang-orang yang tidak dikenal. Pertama sih saya berpikir bahwa email tersebut adalah spam, namun setelah dicek pada header email, ternyata hanya beda karakter titik (.) saja.

Email nyasar

Email nyasar

Tentu saja hal ini sangat merugikan pengguna, terlebih jika email tersebut sifatnya sangat rahasia. Menurut saya sangat disayangkan hal seperti ini terjadi. Apakah ini merupakan kelemahan atau ada hal pertimbangan lainnya sehingga bisa terjadi hal seperti ini.

Walaupun telah dijelaskan oleh google bahwa kedua email tersebut adalah milik orang yang sama, namun pada kenyataannya, saya tidak pernah bertransaksi ataupun melakukan registrasi apapun menggunakan email tersebut seperti yang terdapat pada inbox email ini.

Transaksi yang ada di inbox email

Transaksi yang ada di inbox gmail

Terlihat jelas bahwa pengguna lainnya aktif menggunakan email yang hampir sama namun beda titik ini. Sampai transaksi Internet Bankingnya pun ada di inbox saya, padahal emailnya beda! Inilah yang namanya gratisan, namun saya tidak melihat hal tersebut terjadi pada layanan email di yahoo!

Jangan disalahgunakan

Setelah kejadian tersebut, ada hal iseng terlintas dipikiran saya, bahwa kalau mau tau isi email seseorang atau gebetan, bikin aja email yang sama, tapi dibedakan dengan titik….. hehehe bisa kan?! Pasti dah email-email yang dikirimkan ke gebetan akan masuk juga ke inbox anda! wkwkwkw….

Tapi semoga hal ini adalah praduga saya semata sebagai orang awam di dunia seperti ini, namun patut diwaspadai juga sih, segala macam transaksi sampai file-file yang anda lakukan di email yang seharusnya bersifat pribadi, akan tetapi orang lain juga mengetahuinya.

Namun dengan kejadian seperti ini, menjadikan saya semakin waspada,,, bahwa tidak ada yang aman di dunia ini. Semoga artikel “ternyata gmail itu tidak aman” bermanfaat sebagai pengetahuan dan pembelajaran serta meningkatkan kewaspadaan terhadap hal-hal di dunia maya.
