USTM.US.COM Fake Trademark Invoices – USTM.US.COM Scam
A client sent this over a few days ago. Apparently the USTM.US.COM is sending out letters falsely claiming that that applications which are entirely fine have been abandoned and canceled. As if that wasn’t enough to scare you into calling immediately, USTM.US.COM falsely claims another company has filed a new application to register a similar name.
Basically, the USPTO never sends out invoices. Regardless of how official something looks, don’t pay one of these invoices without first either calling the USPTO at 800-786-9199 or ask your attorney.
