Kay,

You can go online and find out what your Chinise name would be.  Of course, there are many variables, including gender, date of birth, attribute and character.  Your name could be Wu Kong Yi but of course I didn't know all the info to put into the template.  

 

It might behoove you to establish your own name and tell Smithfield so they can address their mail properly.  Smiley Happy

If they want somethig that bad, supply theeir demand.  Foreign purchasers of  US have nade many many errors.

 

Why are they not buying Chinese land and imporving  its productive use.
