I just received this email. The company appears to be legitimate: the website exists and appears to offer domain registration services. However the wording is far from satisfactory; they don’t actually state which domains he has applied for. Possibly the mail is not from intweifa.com
If I make no objection, am I going to later be pressured to give up my evalueco.com domain name or to pay to maintain it? I’ve had it for 15 years and have marketed my company of the same name, so I am certainly not squatting, but will that be any help against a determined well financed organisation?
If is is a scam, what are they aiming for?

We are a domain name registration service company in Asia,
Last week we received a formal application submited by Justin Lee who wanted to use the keyword “EVALUECO” to register the Internet Brand and with suffix such as .cn /.com.cn /.net.cn/.hk/ .asia/ domain names.
After our initial examination, we found that these domain names to be applied for registration are same as your domain name and trademark. We aren’t sure whether you have any relation with him. Because these domain names would produce possible dispute, now we have hold down his registration, but if we do not get your company’s an reply in the next 5 working days, we will approve his application
