Domain register watchers. I had similar emails when I registered a couple domains a couple months ago.

Ignore them. Don’t worry about. They are just registerer squatters sending emails to ever new domain registered.

Annoying little “whois” query 'bots run by spammers.

Or, you can report them to their upstream provider; see:

…but that’s just me; I also run my $DAYJOB’s mail server(s) and being a typical grouchy-ass sysadmin I tend to want retribution against them unwashed masses what dare disturb me with they’re advertising nonsense.
