Pay attention to misleading invoices!

Pay attention to misleading invoices!

by PGA

In these days it has emerged that third parties have sent misleading payment requests to trademark, design and patent rights holders, as they appear to have been issued by the Italian Patent and Trademark Office.

The office has already reported the fact to the competent authorities:

This serious fact joins the already numerous misleading payment requests and invoices that are sent to industrial property rights holders using logos and names that create confusion with the names and logos of other offices, such as the European Union Office EUIPO and the International Office WIPO.

We invite you to pay the utmost attention, not to proceed with any payment and to forward us a copy of the requests received for our verification and possible reporting to the competent offices and authorities.
