Fake invoices

Fake invoices are unfortunately a well known problem among trademark owners. A fake invoice is a misleading invoice (or letter) which reffers to a trademark, design, patent or patent application. A payment is requested for a publication in a register or to extend the validity of a registration. It seems like these invoices are coming from international organisations. They use names like Worldwide database or Trademarks and Patents, Euro IP Register, International Patent & Trademark Database.

Our advice: don't pay. Please contact us is you have any doubts.
