Watch out for firms trying to obtain under false pretences undue payments

Once you submit your trademark, industrial design as well an invention of utility model you will probably get letters from owners of any private databases or just any persons on companies wishing to extort your money making any effort to induce you to make payments allegedly associated with protection provided by EUIPO, Polish Patent Office or WIPO. We would like to draw you attention to the fact tat such payments are not essential for getting legal protection guaranteed by the Industrial Property Law, EPO or EUIPO. Herebelow we present you some examples of such letters but if you have anu doubts if any letter received by you is really pertinent to trademark legal protection, you can always contact us and we will make it clear for you totally free od charge.

Regrettably, letters which are fake decisions of Polish Patent Office, also appear. Said decisions are so well forged that an average entrepreneur is unable to distinguish them from genuine documents!

Using our Office services you can rest assured that we will handle your case comprehensively and professionally. Therefore, our clients make payments exclusively based on our invoices and we pay all official charges therefrom. In this way our clients avoid payment of undue and unnecessary charges. So, it is important that the Office serving you should be your proxy in the proceedings before Polish Patent Office, EUIPO and WIPO. It is also important that your proxy should pay, on your behalf, any and all official charges! That’s how Patent Attorney’s Office of Aneta Balwierz-Michalska operates.

We invite you to our profile on Facebook where we publish sample letters for fraudulent charges.
Examples of letters tricking out of any undue fees you can find also here.
