Beware of false correspondence from the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland! Hide details 20.08.2019
we wish to warn you about a phishing campaign in which fraudsters impersonate the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland (UPRP).
What should you be wary of?
- bogus requests for payment sent by mail (or, less frequently, by email);
- fake invoices and "DECISIONS" claiming to be from UPRP.
What does the scam consist in?
Fraudsters impersonate the existing institution using UPRP's old template to appear legitimate.
They send clients messages requesting them to transfer money onto a fake, fraudulent account number under the pretence of having made an entry into a register and granting protection right to a trademark.
What to do if you have already transferred money to a fake account?
- Immediately report the incident to mBank, describing it and indicating, at least, the recipient's account number;
You can contact us in several ways - by calling the Contact Center hotline (+48 801 273 273/ +48 22 6 273 273), by contacting your Advisor or Corporate Branch or by sending an authorised message via mBank CompanyNet;
- Notify law enforcement authorities, presenting (if possible) the letter/invoice/email in question;
- Optionally: report the incident to UPRP
