"Dear CEO & Manager,
We are a domain name registration and dispute organization in Asia, which mainly deal with the global companies' domain name registration and internet Intellectual property right protection in Asia. Currently, we have a pretty important issue needing to confirm with your company.
On Jan 20,2010, we received an application formally.One company named " [deleted]" wanted to applied for the Internet Keyword " [deleted] " and some domain names through our body.
Now we are handling with the registration of these domain names and find that these names and internet keyword is identical with your company's. So we have to confirm with you at two points:
1. If your company consign [deleted] company to register these domain names and internet keyword, we will send application form to them and help them finish the registration at once.
2. If your company have nothing to do with [deleted] company, they maybe have other purposes to register these names and Internet Keyword.
We haven't finished the registration of [deleted] company yet, and we have postponed this application of this company temporarily already. In order to deal with this issue better, please contact us by telephone or email as soon as possible.
