    For the past few weeks, our clients have received many email messages from people claiming to be foreign domain-name registrars warning you that someone is trying to register one of your domain name trademarks overseas (in China .cn; or Germany .de; or Europe .eu; or even the United States .us), and giving you the "opportunity" to contest it.

    In another version, you're warned that a guy named "Karl Fischer" is trying to register our domain name(s). We've received an identical or similar scam several times this past week.

    By replying, your email address might be sold to spammers and scammers around the world, and your Web site might come under attack by hackers. For more information, please go to:
