SCAM ALERT! FAKE EUIPO RENEWAL INVOICES
06/11/2020
EUIPO warns about a new scam in the format of a Fake EUIPO Renewal Invoice, recently reported to the Office by users.


Its modus operandi is highly similar to scams recently reported in relation to WIPO. Anonymized samples of these Fake Renewal Invoices have been included in the searchable list on the EUIPO’s misleading invoices webpage. The most notable features of this fake renewal invoice scam is the usage of the EUIPO’s logo, name, acronym and other official information, such as address. It is mailed to users from Geneva, Switzerland, and includes a demand for a renewal payment to be transferred to a Polish bank account with a PL IBAN prefix.

For more information on this scam, please read the news item on EUIPO’s website HERE.
