European Attorney Japes?

Just spotted this notice issued by the EPO concerning:

…an e-mail containing a hoax announcement purporting to be from the EPO in which the public is given the impression that the Office’s fax and online filing services will not be available from 30 September 2010 to 6.00 hrs on 4 October 2010…

Whoever instigated such an email would appear to need an understanding of the transitional deadline for filing divisional applications (1 October 2010) set by the recent EPO Rule Changes.

They would also appear to need to get out more often.
