This second letter was sent out years after the mark registered. The service is worthless. The USPTO publishes registered marks on TESS for free for the whole world to see. Unfortunately, there are more letters than this. Beware!


Beware of SCAMS! Letters like these two below are trying to get trademark applicants and registrants to believe that they owe more money in order for their trademark to be registered. This UNITED STATES TRADEMARK REGISTRATION OFFICE is a SCAM organization. This letter is NOT from a government agency. The California Bar shows no attorneys at this address or firm name. There is no phone number that they can be contacted at.

The first letter was sent to a trademark applicant (who was already represented by an attorney) for a service mark before the mark registered. You cannot record an application with the CBP, only registrations. Recording a service is useless. Services are not shipped through customs. This organization is fronting behind a deceptive name in order to get you to send them money for a useless service.

Be careful! There are more organizations like this all over the world that try to scam trademark applicants and registrants. The USPTO (the real government organization) has set up web pages to try to warn trademark applicants and registrants about trademark scams at An entity doing business as the "United States Trademark Protection Agency" is another entity NOT associated with the USPTO that has similar scam letters.
