In November I warned about a new scam targeting trademark owners and applicants that featured a logo and name strikingly similar to those of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). This scam has now reached the attention of WIPO. WIPO has published a list titled “WARNING: Requests for Payment of Fees” featuring a list of solicitation scams targeting trademark owners.
Those who have received or been subject to such scams in the U.S. can file complaints with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
If you have received any such scams, please comment here or email me so we can spread the word.
