I see this scam is back and they don't even bother to change the name Mike Zhang which has been used forever.
I just got this one last night. I almost replied to it, but something didn't seem right about it, so I did some digging. Yes, it's a scam. It seems at least one other person here has been contacted by them as well.

(It's very urgent, therefore we kindly ask you to forward this email to your CEO. If you believe this has been sent to you in error, please ignore it. Thanks)
Dear CEO,
We are the domain registration and solution center in Shanghai, China. We received an application from Hongshun Ltd on March 8, 2024. They want to register "fetishes" as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names (,,, But after checking it, we find this name conflict with your company name or trademark. In order to deal with this matter better, it's necessary to send email to you and confirm whether this company is your distributor in China?

Best Regards

We just had questions from some clients about this one.. Scam, definitely.
Well the good thing about this one is that I think everyone sees through this, and that there's not a whole lot of desire for typical canadian businesses to want to sell their products/services to chinese anyways. If you fall for this one, you're the definition of sucker, but I assume the loss is nominal at least.
