The fraudsters often take the trouble to come up with their own fake logo. This was not the case here. This latest bogus invoice for renewal of a European trademark is currently being sent to  trademark owners in Europe. Simply with the official logo of the European Trademark Office and their real address.


A number of companies informed us that they have paid this invoice by mistake. We fear that they will never see their money back, the bird has flown. So stay alert and also keep your own financial department informed. With such an officially looking document, a payment order is quickly given.
