I frequently get emails like the one below. I assume they're a scam, but I don't know how the scam works.
We are a professional Internet consultant 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 2009-07-20, we received an application formally, one person named “REDACTED” wanted to applied for the Internet brand REDACTED and some domain names through our body.
During our preliminary investigation,we found that these domain names’ keyword and internet brand is identical with your trademark. I wonder whether you consigned "REDACTED" to register these domain names through us or not?

In addition, I must state that we have time limited for one person or one company’s registration. It is just 15 days. If your company files doesn't resent within the time limited. We will unconditionally authorized the application of "REDACTED".
What's the best way of dealing with these? Currently I just ignore them...
