Misleading invoices from a party falsely claiming to be the EUIPO, the European Union Intellectual Property Office, are currently being sent to EU right holders. Please refer to below example. The misleading invoices contain the authority’s name, logo and are printed on the EUIPO official letterhead. Additionally, they often reference a real ongoing matter, why they can easily be mistaken for genuine invoices. However, EUIPO never sends payment claims to users via mail or email.

If you have received an invoice or a message similar to the below, we recommend that you contact your regular contact person at Brann before you pay it or respond.
