Fraudulent invoices in Brazil

Underground Kingdom S.L is a Spanish company involved in the world of audio-visual business. The company filed an application to protect their Trademark throughout Europe, that was granted in July.

As part of their latest documentary, they want to include Brazilian music artists and are thinking of promoting and distributing their documentary in Brazil. So, the company decided to file for Trademark protection (name of the company) in Brazil, in addition to Copyright. 

A few month later the company received, first, an e-mail from UBRAM, an organism claiming to be subcontracted by INPI and requiring them to pay an additional amount of monney. They also received a phone call a few days later.
