Various fraudulent schemes implying association with the World Intellectual Property Organization (s10总决赛竞猜) including fake offers of employment at s10总决赛竞猜, training courses and e-mail prize awards have been detected.

These use not only e-mails but also fake web-sites, faxes and telephone numbers. Some of them even include the name of the Director General of s10总决赛竞猜 and names of s10总决赛竞猜 staff. Many request detailed information and/or money, in connection with supposed registration fees, hotel reservations, employment opportunities, prizes or awards.
