  • The trademark registration numbers are actual Mona Vie trademarks. You can check them out at uspto.gov.

    One of my clients got this email yesterday and started worrying that they were actually going to get sued. I called Mona Vie to make sure that they knew about this. I got their General Counsel’s Voice Mail–we’ll see what they have to say when they call back.

    • Hi, they are Mona Vie trademarks, however the original ‘Suit Filed / Filing Suit’ message is severely lacking in content. If you look at the original link which has the ‘spam’ message but no content, only a link to an xls spreadsheet, and then look at the second link I posted you will see a drastic difference between the qualified letter(second one, with infringing site, content, etc listed right in the email) vs the other one which comes across as a poorly modified hack of the original message, has no detail, and expects someone to download an XLS document out of fear. I would be interested in seeing what you hear back, but I don’t think it’s valid just from what I’ve seen here. Thanks for your comment!
