WARNING- don’t be mislead by false trademark invoices

Posted by Jane on May 14, 2013 / Posted in Trade Marks
If you use the Trademarkroom as your agent- ANY official document will come through us.

May of our clients have been receiving false invoices and although we always warn against this- some still pay it! Below are some examples.

A list of letters from firms or registers, which users have complained are misleading, is published below for your information. Please note that these services are not connected with any official trade mark or design registration services provided by public bodies within the European Union such as OHIM or the UKIPO.

If you receive a letter or invoice please check carefully what is being offered to you, and its source. Please note that the OHIM never sends invoices to users or letters requesting direct payment for services.

We include below some sample letters from firms or registers, which have nothing to do with OHIM’s registers or official publications. (Click on the images to enlarge them).
