I had my idea for 13 years but did not do anything about it until i saw the add on tv for Invent Help. I called the number and they send me to the Manhattan NY location. They told me that they need 1000.00 for the research and proposal book. I told them that I do not make alot of money. I was told not to worry about it because with my idea I will make back the money plus more. So I paid the money from the money Iwas saving to buy a house. When the research came back they told me that there is no one else outh there with my idea, now i am excited.
Then they told me that I need to pay over 12,000 more for them to do the marketing and everything else. I told them I did not have all that money. They told me if I can come up with 5,000 there is fininical service called Universal Payment. Universal Payment would pay them up front and I would pay them back with a Monthly installment. I got had 1,500 they rest from my life saving and money for my house, them my dad because he believed that my invention would make money took from from his 401k to make up the difference.
Every few month they sent my a letter of companies that I have never heard of before (never one of major comapnies) that they sent my idea to review. Out of they hundreds of companies that they sent it to I find it hard to believe not one of them called them back. Invent Help also said that they sent to Magazine company to set up interviews. This has been going on since March of 06. Now i get a letter from them that my 2 year comtract has expired. I am very upset because out of the 2 years I got robbed. I am still paying back Universal Payment my bills are pilled up and I did not get to buy a house not even a shack to call mine. My kids will probably grow up leaving in someone else house.
They are just robbing people, they are getting richer while we are getting poorer. They need to be stopped. I want back all my money back and for they to pay back the payment center. PLEASE HELP ME. THANK YOUI
