‘Misleading Invoices’ on Intellectual Property

People applying for intellectual property rights, such as Trade Marks, have started to receive what the Intellectual Property Office refer to as ‘misleading invoices’.  These are official-looking documents which resemble invoices, often with a deadline on payment, but are actually unsolicited offers for work from third parties.

The ‘invoices’ are made to appear genuine and without close scrutiny imply that payment is mandatory rather than optional.
