U.S. Patent & Trademark Office Scams

10/24/2012

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has created a new website in response to an increasing number of scams involving their office.  These scams are non-USPTO solicitations resembled to look like the USPTO and are solicitating funds for various uses.  The USPTO has warned the public through the launching of a webpage, as given below.

The webpage informs us that all notices by the USPTO will be from the “United States Patent and Trademark Office” in Alexandria, VA and if the notice is by e-mail, will contain the domain “@uspto.gov”.  The webpage also gives a list of examples of non-USPTO solicitations.

For more information, check out the USPTO website.
