I'm trying to figure out whether this is legit or a scam:

Dear CEO & Principal ,

We are a domain name registration and dispute organization in Asia, which mainly deal with the global companies' domain name registration and internet Intellectual property right protection. Currently, we have a pretty important issue needing to confirm with your company.

On September 13, 2009, we received an application formally. One company named "SMCXJR Holdings Ltd" wanted to applied for the Internet Keyword "gluten-free-chocolate " and some domain names through our body.

Now we are handling with the registration of these domain names and find that the keyword of these names is identical with your company's. So we have to confirm with you at two points:
1. If your company consign SMCXJR company to register these names, we will send application form to them and help them finish the registration at once.
2. If your company have nothing to do with SMCXJR company, they maybe have other purposes to register these names.

We haven't finished the registration of SMCXJR company yet, and we have postponed this application of this company temporarily already. In order to deal with this issue better, please contact us by telephone or email as soon as possible.

Waiting for your reply ASAP.

Best regards
Auditing Department

    Yes, I have seen that email posted in a couple of forums before. From memory they ask you for like $500 to fill out some sort of registration thing which basically protects the domain name in asia or something like that. In the other forums I have seen this in everyone was calling it a scam.

    The spelling mistakes alone give it away. Lesson to learn: Word-like software nowadays comes with spelling and grammar check. Give it a go. Honestly.
