I own the .com and have done for 5 years, it is a generic two word name.
Anyway I have just received this email from China (have removed the obvious things!)
What do you guys think, I have 5 days to respond? Should I allow them to register the domains below in the hope of selling the .com eventually?
Here is the email anyway...
