Impersonating the IP office in Vietnam
Vietnam's National Office of IP (NOIP) has issued a Notice saying that there are people impersonating NOIP officers, sending emails and making phone calls to businesses about IP. They are coercing them into registering IP, asserting that there are pending applications similar to their IP which may be registered unless the IP holder files a new application. This is a typical scam in Asia most usually seen by Chinese domain name registrars. The NOIP has officially published their contact details so people can directly contact the NOIP.
