(Letter to Head of Brand Business or CEO,thanks.)
Dear Sir or Madam,
This is a formal email. We are the auditing department of a professional domain name registration and dispute solution organization in China. We formally received an online application on Feb. 28,2014 that a company claimed "Echa Int'l Co., Ltd" were applying to register "scamdex" as their Brand Name and some "scamdex" Asian countries top-level domain names. Now we are handling this registration,after our audit department checking,we found this is conflict with your company's domain name and trade name.
According to the registration principle in China,we will audit every application of our customer in order to avoid the conflict of the intellectual property. You are the original trademark owner,so I am sending you this E-mail to check if your company has authorized that company to register these names. If you have authorized this,we will finish the registration at once,otherwise,pls inform me ASAP.
Our time limit for dissent application is 7 workdays. Out of the time limit we will unconditionally finish the registration for that company,so please contact us as soon as possible. Have a beautiful day.
Max Wong (Mr.)
