My name is Paul ****, I invented the electric pet groomer device. to be patented, manufactured and marketed by absolutely new inc, in 2009.  I paid absolutely new inc 23,000 for the job. but they failed to deliver what they say they would do. basicall after 2 monthly reports from them about some tradeshows they were attending to  pitch my invention, they stopped taking my calls.  i am very mad at this company,  i need a refurn of 23,000, dollar money i had to borrow. they told me, feb  2011, ie their attorney tony torres, that he could find any reason for his company to refurn my 23,000, because they have  done their job, I asked, him if had it been that they told me up front, that all they will do was, a 3-d design, a us pattent which i paid for. and 2-3 trade shows was what im going to get, and not the 8m dollars product licensing agreementy, and a  deal with pesmart whom benjamin stafford of ANI promised me will buy the rights to my invention, and i will recive 80% of the proceeds, whuile ANI will recieve 10%. I will have never sent then the 23,000. To make this worst, i saw tsame kind of device ie electric pet groomer, beeing advertised on ANI WEBSITE. ie they violated my pattent. I can be reach at (((phone number redacted))) and (((email redacted)))

AUTHOR: Got screwed - (USA)

Dear Independent Inventor,

If you are considering a contract with AbsolutelyNew for invention promotion services, it is highly recommended you research the following public information before making your decision to give them your hard earned money.

1. New Angle Pet Products LLC  vs.  AbsolutelyNew Inc. 


By using the above link you will be taken to a site where you can learn everything you would want to know about a patent infringement lawsuit that AbsolutelyNew recently lost.  They were ordered to pay $60,000.00 and destroy all of the product they had manufactured.

2.  Invent WorldWide Consulting LLC  vs  AbsolutelyNew Inc.


By using the above link you will be taken to a site where you can learn the current status of a trademark infringement and unfair business practices lawsuit that AbsolutelyNew is currently facing.  The allegations in this complaint are shocking and if true we will be asking Absolutely Who?

3.  Suspended Status with California Secretary of State


AbsolutelyNew has been operating their business under a suspended status with the California Secretary of State since May 2nd.  They also are not maintaining the required Surety Bond.  If you go to the above link and do a business search using the entity number C2436332 you can see the suspended status for yourself.  The suspension was initiated by the Franchise Tax Board meaning they probably did not pay their corporate taxes..A form has to be filled out and sent to the Secretaries office in
Sacramento so see that they have no Surety Bond.  

4.  Falsely advertizes BBB accreditation on their blog and Facebook


If you use the above link you will be taken to a page on AbsolutelyNew's  blog where they are bragging about being a BBB accredited business.  If you go to the BBB site, http://www.bbb.org/greater-san-francisco/business-reviews/product-development-and-marketing/absolutelynew-in-san-francisco-ca-297003 you will see that they in fact are not an accredited business.

5.  No longer a United Inventors Association certified member


By using the above link you will be taken to the United Inventors Association's blog where the UIA has posted a suspicious letter from AbsolutleyNew's CEO Richard Donat.  In this letter Mr. Donat states that AbsolutelyNew will not be renewing their membership with the UIA.  Their are some interesting comments about the letter and in one comment Mark Reyland the UIA executive director states that AbsolutelyNew's VP is also no longer on the UIA board.  Its only speculation but the UIA
probably finally rescinded the UIA Certification enjoyed by AbsolutleyNew due to the high volume of complaints and as a
result AbsolutelyNew decided not to renew their membership.  We will have to wait and see whats going on with this one.

Do your homework on this one and don't say you weren't warned.
