This is a formal email. We are the Domain Registration Service company in Shanghai, China. Here I have something to confirm with you. On June 12, 2022, we received an application from Hongmei Ltd requested "firstgreatwestern" as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names (firstgreatwestern.cn, firstgreatwestern.com.cn, firstgreatwestern.net.cn, firstgreatwestern.org.cn). But after checking it, we find this name conflict with your company name or trademark. In order to deal with this matter better, it's necessary to send email to you and confirm whether this company is your distributor in China?

I don't think we want to jump in ahead of a phantom company in China and register alternative domain for the Coffee Shop there through some unknown intermediary - I have decline similar invites in the past to rush in and register "wellho" domains for our IT business.  But I was amused at the thought of through trains and bookings from Looe to Bejing or Hereford to Wutan.
