New misleading invoice alert

Fake EUTM Renewal Invoices

EUIPO warns users to be especially alert due to a new misleading invoice in circulation, which takes the form of a fake EUTM renewal invoice. The misleading invoice has very recently been reported to the Office by users. This latest misleading invoice uses the EUIPO’s logo, name, acronym and address, and purports to be an EUTM renewal invoice issued by the Office. It is mailed to users from Geneva, Switzerland, and includes a demand for a “registration and entry fee” to be transferred to a Polish bank account with a PL IBAN prefix.
