Criminal judgment by the Court of Appeal in Stockholm against fraudsters sending misleading invoices to trademark owners


The Court of Appeal in Stockholm has delivered a judgment in a criminal case regarding fraudsters who had sent misleading invoices to EUTM owners under the confusing letterhead “OMIH”.

The two main charged persons were sentenced to imprisonment for completed gross fraud.

The Office and the user association MARQUES actively supported the Swedish prosecutor during the investigation and gave witness statements before the Court.

The Office will post more information on this case through its website in January.
