Scam trademark invoices

Department of Education

01 March 2019

Schools are reminded to be vigilant when processing invoices to ensure they are valid.

Some schools have been sent invoices by an organisation called the Patent and Trademark Agency requesting payment for fake trademark registrations.

Invoices from the Patent and Trademark Agency, or any other entity related to trademark renewals, must not be paid.

Trademark renewal invoices should only come from IP Australia.

For more information, please go to the IP Australia website.
