Numerous clients have contacted us regarding emails they have received from foreign companies notifying them that another company is about to purchase variations of their domain name. These emails are intended to scare you into thinking that another company is about to purchase domain names similar to yours to market a competing product and service. In most cases these claims are completely false and should just be ignored. If you are concerned, however, and would like to purchase the domain names, please make sure that you contact us or another honest company you can trust to assist you in purchasing them. We typically suggest that these emails be ignored, however.
Here's an example of an email recently received by one of our clients:
