From that point the customer will tell Invention Submission Corporation their idea, "we do not evaluate ideas at all. We do not tell them if it is good or bad. We are merely providing services to them if they want to proceed."

If we get complaints or anything in regards to our services we obviously try to make them better. We try to make better metal prototypes, we are updating materials using 3D renderings, we provide a virtual invention browsing experience for companies to look at ideas. We are constantly improving.

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Invent help Internet

 I'd just like to say that Invent Help is of no help at all. The only thing they will help you do is go broke . I had a meeting with a Woman in my City and sure the meeting was good, but I still left not feeling very confident , my idea was good but the cost was amazingly high. She told me between 10-14 thousand dollars . This was so my idea could be researched, a patent would be put on it and oh by the way they could finance me if I put down 2-3k. The thing that bothered me was that she couldn't even give her opinion , it could be the worst idea in the world and she couldn't tell me to go home and think of something better she 'd just get the paperwork ready and yup rip YOU off. Eventually they submit it to Big Companies. They give you nice little book , one you just bought for nearly 14k..

I also know if you finance with them you are still paying after they are done representing you which is 2 years. So at this point they've got you , hook, line and absolutley sinker.  I filled out the paper work and even gave her my credit card # for the "first payment" ... thought about and called her first thing in the morning and said nevermind. I told her that feedback , for me was very important, she can't give me her feedback but she told me how her boyfriends X just got out of jail and that she was worried. All I want to say is that if anyone is trying to submit their ideas to a Company be extremely careful. Invent Help doesn't care that they will likely make you broke , it made me mad when this Woman had appointments all day and people are just getting ripped off. I told her it was wrong. She said she'd have her boss call me and then called back and said he won't call me, that I would see for myself then I'll call them. Didn't have to call them , found a good Company who has given me feedback and they love it. She mentioned to me that is was like having a small biz , never know what's going to happen... really? I get that sometimes their are places that need the $ to get the ball rolling but if the boss won't call to clear up some questions you may have then they are not worth it. He wouldn't answer my ?'s. I'm currently working with Invent SAI  the've been great .  If you really feel like you have something good try Invent SAI or moneyfor ideas.com or Lambert and Lambert. If your product is worth  inventing one of these  places will get it done. Lambert and Lambert and money4ideas you pay a ONE TIME only fee. Seriously, that's it. The rest they pay for and no $ for them until they get you an offer. When submitting remember that you love your idea and you should but don't be offended if a Company doesn't like it, they know what sells and if your idea doesn't sell this time , maybe the next time it will. I'd rather be out $200 instead of $14,000 . That's what happens at Invent help , they promise nothing, at least the other Companies have faith in your idea, if it can work they will make it happen. I've investigated all of them and a few ripoff reports came back because they didn't accept their ideas and people were mad, but remember only a few ARE accepted . It's not personal but it's for them to be objective. Again lose $200 or $14,000 , keep your eyes and ears open.
