Trademark scam companies to watch out for

I recently registered a Trade Mark for a company and after i had paid for it i got a scam letter saying ...you must send payment for your trademark to...

I called up the patent office to check that i had paid already and they confirmed i had. Therefore the company that was asking me to make further payments to them was trying to scam a payment to themselves.

Here's a list of these tricky shit unofficial registration services.

EIEC's address at 9 Capouillet treet turned out to be a maildrop that takes in post for anyone who pays.

If anyone makes a payment and even a small one, i'm interested to know the bank it goes to cause those scammers sent me another false letter today asking for £479.
