An earlier post cautioned trademark owners about official-looking correspondence that appears to be from the USPTO.  These mailings are in fact solicitations for enrollment in optional trademark services, some of which may have some value to some owners, but most of which are purely superfluous.

Recently, our clients have received a different species of these deceptive mailings.  The examples below don’t seem to be designed to mimic official USPTO documentation, but rather originate from various places around the world.

Example 1

Example 2

Example 3

Again, we caution trademark owners to be skeptical of unsolicited mailings regarding their trademarks, and to seek legal advice before sending money in response to any form.
