    Had it? Refers to a domain registration dispute in China, motorhomefun. I have deleted it, just wondered how they got my email address. Cheers.

    Its all balls..
    I own ( and still own several .. as in about a hundred ! ) domain names
    I get these regular as clockwork..
    For the layman I would ignore them
    Me, I have a contact who is part of a legal beagle team who takes GREAT delight in ripping the buggers to shreds and who has successfully had a few people in China investigated and charged with cyber fraud
    The Chinese police and govt take this sort of thing VERY seriously as they consider it could harm China trade relations in even the short term

    As an aside, a few years ago I was actually thanked for my involvement and was invited to attend a 'party' in London with the then Chinese trade delegate ( whose name I really cannot remember ).. I had the letter on display above the desk for a few years ( not that anyone ever saw it I spose ) :)
    Quite proud of it !
