Fake invoice from Trademark Publication Register

6 December 2016

You may have received an invoice from a company calling itself Trademark Publication Register (TPR). If so, you can safely throw it into your waste paper basket. This invoice is fake.

The amount on it is staggeringly high: € 1497. Don’t pay. You don’t need to, because this is merely an offer, not an invoice. It says so in the small print.

The people who are sending such fake invoices are hoping that people will pay up straight away without bothering to read the small print. Don’t fall for this trick.

Here’s an example:
