This company assured me they would work with me. They have proved that they had no intention of doing so. They have repeated shown that they would do nothing but send out "blind fliers", with no confirmation of addressee at companies which results in "junk mail" and is worthless. Unfortunately I had two projects going at once, and things kept getting worse. There's too much information and documentation to write here.
First, they refused to contact my "established contacts at interested companies". My contacts confirmed that their flyer was never recieved due to failure to confirm addressee, as they have no "established industry contacts" as I was told they did. They couldn't supply me with one. They then decided they didn't have to talk to me, as shown in the documentation.
Everything they said was a blatant lie, which I only found out myself later. They claimed "marketability under patent pending status". The companies that I contacted like the tool, and all said "call me if patent issues". The patent attorney said after rejections, that I have to file for RCE as examiner has been comparing it to the wrong items and category. So, stil spending and waiting.
The other project is an exchanger to save each of us over $500/year. Patent issued in only 7 1/2 months. InventHelp didn't tell me it was published on the web, so I could show it to companies during a phone call which surpasses and invalidates "blind fliers". InventHelp had me trying to getsigned "confidentiality agreements" from companies while it was published on the USPTO website, which is totally inappropriate. They then refused to send the "brochure" to the same companies that require "submission by inventor only" and they also did not inform me of the possibility for this. These companies will not deal with InventHelp. Had to request copies of "brochure" to send myself. They removed themselves from this project, and hide behind their "confidentiality agreements".
Inventors can't possibly realize how detrimental this company's business plan is to successful product development. It is designed in such a minimalistic manner to reduce their involvement that it intentionally kills projects as their only interest is in inventor's assets. They have avoided publicity, at every opportunity that I have produced. They have worked against me at every turn, and have been completely detrimental to my effort to develope a viable product that will save each of us over $500 in energy costs per year! Once a patent issues they are completely out of the process! This alone is a HUGE failure.
This process is extremely difficult and I had no idea that there were scams like this out there that intentionally hurt ME and YOU financially! We need to cut down on use of foreign oil. The figures for the current heat loss in this area are over $50 BILLION per year!!! This company should be dealt with like OSAMA at a known location!
