So I dislike Scammers and it makes me want to track these scumbags down and punch them in the face.
While I initially thought it was a legitimate email, I was never thinking of registering any domains other then NerdBlurt.com. NerdBlurt name is as in my reply currently in the process of becoming a registered trademark to me.
I wanted to share with you all the below email in hopes to help any of you should you receive this type of email. I wouldn’t even open it, just delete it and mark as spam. ( I removed all hyper links)
(If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO,Thanks) We are the organization of trademark intellectual property protection in China. Here we have something to confirm with you. We received a formal application on 23/07/2013. A company named “TianHui Import & Export Co. Ltd” was applying to register “nerdblurt” as its Trademark and the following domain names:
After our initial checking, we found the names were similar to your company’s, so we need to check with you whether “TianHui Import & Export Co. Ltd” has any relationship with you and whether the registration of the listed domains by “TianHui Import & Export Co. Ltd” would bring any impact on you. If no impact on you, we will go on with the registration at once. If you have no relationship with that company and the registration would bring some impact on you, please inform us within 10 workdays.Out of the time prescribed we will unconditionally finish the registration for “TianHui Import & Export Co. Ltd”
Please contact us in time in order that we can handle this issue better.

Now here is my original response
Thank you for your email. I would not approve of anyone using the NerdBlurt domains or likeness, other then myself as it does affect the NerdBlurt Brand in all it’s entirety. It is currently in the process of being a registered trademark to myself here in the United states.
Blurt Media Group
Doing what we all do I went to the googles and put in the companies name that wanted to trademark nerdblurt. I cam across FraudWatchers.org
I then read the following post. http://www.fraudwatchers.org/forums/showthread.php?p=173071
Here is my verification document from the Trademark department of this great nation.
I will say this I was about to forward the information to my legal team asI take the NerdBlurt name very serious. I don’t want anyone defacing it and trying to utilize what I have built without my permission.
I also want you all to be aware of things like this, the more people share
Hello fine readers, I am here just testing out my new url shortener http://Blu-rt.me.
I do plan on documenting in a post how i did this.
Thank you everyone.
Hello so for Task # 253 on CloudCred, you are tasked with blogging about your team members.
So here is my post for that particular Task.
Our Team mission is to be #1 and beat out EMC and the vExperts teams. I kidnapped the team name from our popular IT get together the #NerdHerd. Both Matthew Brender & SeanThulin are members of the opposition team EMC. However they are also members of the #NerdHerd in person. So it was chosen to give some playful banter and intimidation to team EMC. The team is compromised of currently 8 players.
We are a collection of IT professionals from around the world. All highly competitive and have the urge for world domination! <insert evil laugh while petting back of a cat>
Many of us know each other in person having met at various technical conferences and discuss a lot of stuff on various social mediums from Twitter to, IM chat to actually meeting up and talking. Shocked people actually still meet in person now a days huh?
I have a great team of my peers. I wouldn’t want it any other way. We are fun spirited and competitive. We are also critical in the process and I will reserve that for another post coming shortly on CloudCred in general. Right now this is about Team NerdHerd. You want to be on a winning team? we have a few spots left and only requirement is you have to love having fun, bantering with people, I personally talk a lot of smack. But more importantly you have to want to learn something and share something you know with not just us but the community in whole.
I am writing this to see if you could all help me help my daughter and her 4th grade class. It is very easy to participate and if you could talk to colleagues in other States that be great!
Rules: The object of the game is for each class to acquire ONE postcard from ALL 50 states in the United States before the other classes.
This is where you all come in.
This is such a wonderful idea! I am hoping to help my daughters class win with your help. We are such a diverse group from all over the world. I would love if you all could help, and if anyone from overseas wants to send them too I think that be awesome! (I know they just looking for the states, but how cool would it be to get one from another country!)
