Davison DesignRIDC Park 595 Alpha Drive Pittsburg, Pennsylvania U.S.A.

*Consumer Suggestion: It's the old invention development con! You're lucky you only lost $500!
They led me to believe with their help I wouldn't have to do any research, or finding contacts, or paperwork etc. to sell my idea.
They offered invention marketing services. First, for $585.00, Mark Evans, employee at Davison, offered research in the form of a product research and to research other ideas and uses for my idea, stating that they were close and working with top companys. They needeed my money so they could make sure no one else had a patent, etc. for this product. I had to pay out the money in two payments, emptying my savings.
They sent papers for me to sign so they could get on with their research. In paperwork they sent me it said the total number of clients who have contracts with the company is three thousand five hundred fourty nine. I was warned that they could help get things done, because if I didn't inquire into the law governing patents I may jeopardize my rights to my idea. For just 10% of any money made from my invention, so he said, that lets me know they want me to make money so they can get money from sales. I was told they would getright on it, because now they are working on their own money and time.
Today I recieved a letter that said we need more done because we have a large company, known by everyone, that is interested in my product but they have to show this company how much it costs to make them, etc. Now I need to apply for a patent, but they will prepare all the documents for me so I can get a patent; they will pay for the costs associated with preparing the documents.
Now Mark Evans will call me, and who knows what's next, I believe they are going to want more money. I am afraid to do business with them now because I can see they did no research, or preperation of a prototype as they had promised. I also don't know how to get out of the contract I signed.
