Dear Manager,
(If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO,Thanks)
This email is from China domain name registration center, which mainly deal with the domain name registration and dispute internationally in China and Asia.
On Sep 18th 2012, We received Kenya Ltd's application that they are registering the name "physicsforums" as their Internet Keyword and "physicsforums.cn "、"physicsforums.com.cn " 、"physicsforums.asia "domain names etc.., they are China and ASIA domain names. But after auditing we found the brand name been used by your company. As the domain name registrar in China, it is our duty to notice you, so we are sending you this email to check. According to the principle in China, your company is the owner of the trademark, In our auditing time we can keep the domain names safe for you firstly, but our audit period is limited, if you object the third party application these domain names and need to protect the brand in china and Asia by yourself, please let the responsible officer contact us as soon as possible.

That's a scam. If you do a search on some key-words from this message, you'll find many more examples.
