I just got this from my e-mail.
Is this a new scam strategy.
A quick search on the domainwhitepages.com leads to a single e-mail:

Subject: XXxxXX -Intellectual Property Right(To CEO) Urgent

Dear CEO,

We are a domain name registrar centre in HongKong.and in charge of the registeration in Asia.We have something important need to confirm with your company.
?
On the December 2,2008, we received an application formally from M-Victor Corp who applied for the?Internet?trademark:
"xxxxx<company name been blankout>xxxxxx ? and some domain names relevant to this trademark from our organization.

During our auditing procedure we find out that the M-Victor Corp has no trade mark, Intellectual property, nor patent even similar to that word.we have the duty to inform you this matter. If you do not know this company, we doubt that they have other aims to buy these domain names. Now we have not finished the registration of M-Victor Corp yet, in order to deal with this issue better, please let someone who is responsible for trademark or domain name contact me as soon as possible.
?
(PS:If you are not in charge of this matter,please transfer this email to appropriate dept.) Best Regards, Jerry.Lee Auditing Chairman _________________________ ?

Yup, standard domain scam. It's the email variant of scam #1 below. They want you to panic and pay them to prevent some other business from registering all the domain names similar to yours. If you quoted it exactly, you also have a scammer who doesn't know how to complete the script...

From http://www.domainscams.co.uk/what-is-a-domain-scam.php

Quote:
What is a domain name scam?

Domain names are purchased by business owners for websites and email (e.g. mybusiness.co.uk), and there are many different domain name extensions available to purchase (e.g. .com, .net, .co.uk, .org.uk etc). To buy all these extensions is expensive, and in many cases pointless. Therefore it is possible for you to register myuniquebusinessname.com and someone else register the exact same name but with a .co.uk extension. This may be of concern to you, or it may not, depending on your business. Domain name scammers prey upon this fear of some other company getting your name, and they prey upon the general ignorance of most business owners when it comes to domain name registrations.

There are two popular scams:
Scam Number 1: The scare tactic

In this scam, you will receive a telephone call from a domain registration company who will tell you that another company is about to buy all your domain names. There are a number of variations on this blag, but basically, it's a load of rubbish. Registering a domain name these days is an almost instant process. No-one will be "notified" that you are trying to register a domain name, so whenever you hear this kind of nonesense on the phone, be assured it is a scam.

The telesales scammer will want to take your credit card there and then for the domain registration. They will, in all probability register the names, but you will have been charged way over the odds for domains that you neither needed, wanted nor were in any danger of being registered by some other company.

Sometimes these scammers boost their illicit profits by selling domains for long periods (e.g. 10 years). Some domains cannot be registered for 10 years, but by the time the renewal does come around and you realise you haven't got what you paid for, the scammers will be long gone.

He has your RL email address and your website, so it's not safe to bait him.
