6th meeting of the Anti-Scam Network
The EUIPO hosted the 6th annual meeting of the Anti-Scam Network on 22 March 2021.
As in the previous edition, the meeting was organised through virtual means due to COVID-19-related restrictions.
Representatives from national and regional IP Offices of the EU Member States and EFTA countries, the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO), Europol, Eurojust, and various user associations joined the virtual meeting to discuss strategies and forthcoming actions in the fight against misleading invoices that are being systemically sent to users of the intellectual property systems.
The focus of this meeting was on intensifying cooperation to address new scams through legal actions.
Users can protect themselves against scams and misleading invoices by double-checking any correspondence they receive in relation to their trade marks and designs, and in case of doubt, contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information on the Anti-Scam Network and its activities is available on the Misleading invoices section.
