News – A massive scam resulted in the invalidation of 5,550+ trademark applications filed by low-cost filers

trademark scam 2

Attention Amazon sellers! Do you need help filing a trademark application? Be wary of low-cost trademark filing companies that may not have the proper certifications. The USPTO recently invalidated more than 5,500 trademark applications filed by certain companies due to their egregious scheme to deceive both the USPTO and their customers. These companies falsely advertised low filing fees, sent fake demand letters, made intentional mistakes in the trademark applications so customers had to pay more to get them resolved, and even forged signatures. As a result, the USPTO recommends that each of the applicants who hired these companies must now re-file their trademark application and use the services of a certified attorney.

The USPTO decision to cancel over 5,500 trademarks had jolted Amazon into action. We received several requests for help from Amazon sellers who used these illicit services and had their trademarks invalidated by the USPTO. Each received the following message from Amazon, canceling their Brand Registry privileges, stating that they must file for a new application.
