Journal Corporate Troll's Journal: I don't have the impression they read my email -- .cn scam 4

Dear Sir,

And Internet Brand "jawtheshark ".
You would know domain name takes open registration, this is international domain name registration principle. So Mr. John Zhang has right to register it.
If you think his registration will confuse your clients and harm your profits, we can send an application document to you and help you register these domains within our approving period.

Hope get your decision as soon as possible so that we can handle the next step

Best regards

Your Sincerely
