Is "apdnr.hk" is a scam? What should we do?

By Frog11 ·
We have a Domain Name registered as www.sunmarg.com and today we received this mail:

Dear Sir or Madam,

We are a Global Domain Name Registration Center in Hong Kong, mainly dealing with domain name registration and internet intellectual property rights protection. On Jan.25,2010 we received a formal application from a local company of your country who is applying to register some domain names with the keyword ?sunmarg ?as the keyword. After investigation,we find that you are the original user of the keyword. Such similar domain cases may involve your trademark and company name,and may cause website confusion and conflicts. For a responsible attitude, we inform you here and ask for your opinion. If you don't mind,we will finish registration for the third company.
Look forward to your reply.

well as this is a Old One which has been going around for years my suggestion would be to Ignore it Completely.

Of course if you have money to waste you can pay them what they ask for but you'll get this as a yearly bill that you get no benefit from.

If you like you can give me the same amount and I'll not bother you so it's cheaper.

Yes it is a scam

Yes it is a scam. They make money by overcharging on domain name registration or take your money and never register the domain at all.
I made a blog post about their scam and they send a threatening message about my post hurting their reputation but all hot air and nothing happens.
