I thought i was the only victim for invent tech. Thanks to this site, i see that there are many people like me out there to share their stories.
I saw a commercial for invent tech in 2004 to promote ideas and inventions. I did not know how much it would cost so i gave them a call. They said they will send me a start up packet, draw up my idea, and send it back to them. I remember talking to a guy name Eddie. After they received my idea they said that it was a good idea and they need me to send 800 to get information and do research on it. They made it sound so hype so i sent it to them. A couple of weeks later they said that is marketable and they were going to a show and can find people to produce it but i need to send them 6 more thousand. I told Eddie that i dont have that kind of money. He asked if know anyone that can lend it to me and i said that rent is coming up and i dont even have that. [continued below]....
..... He gave me ideas to make money like to go holding up signs on the streets for a job and saving it up to invest in my idea. He sounded so confident in my idea so then i told him that i can sell my car and give it to them. He said that will work. He said the sooner they get the money then the sooner they can get started on my idea. Within a week from our conversation i sold my car and barely had enough to give them and sent them a money order. I did not hear from them in a couple of weeks so i called back Invent Tech and asked for the person i usually talk to. The guy i was talking to said that Eddie got transferred to another department. I never heard from them again. It took me a year to save up for a car again. I went through a lot of troubles asking for rides to work and do errands. I wish that i never invested any money in something that was a waste of time and money.
I am glad that this site was here. Every now and then i think about all the money i put into this and think how dumb i was. I was laughed at by my friends and family. Is there anything i can do to get my money back? If anyone knows then please let me know
