Their so-called services do nothing to help patent or sell invention ideas. I was told by a patent attorney I talked with and he said it was all a bunch of junk, that they scammed me. He also said about the so-called patent I have with inventhelp that I needed a provisional patent not a design patent, which is all they did for me. The design patent is worthless. I quit sending them money and the universal payment corporation aka universal finance company is all the time aggravating me to pay up the last bit I owe. I refuse to talk with them because I told inventhelp that I just want my hard-earned money back that I was hoping to invest in with the invention idea I had. Now I am out over 16,000.00 plus more because of this so-called company. They have completely ripped me off. Please help if you can. Thanks so much.

Do not let them bully you into a partial refund. They tried the excuse that 'it's been 10 years' with me-as well as a gag order. I want the full refund as required by the FTC-94 ruling. This is the minimum I will accept to even think about not talking about this scam. I have the list of alleged 'companies' from their highly touted 'databank' that had NOTHING to do with what I was trying to market-much less that I needed foreign patents and was told I didn't-a violation of FTC-94.

I don't care how long it's been. All this scam information and rulings have not been available for 10 years so who cares. I, myself, didn't get internet access until 1999 and was a real rookie then as to how to search and access information. I am quite a bit better now and they will pay-either me by way of a full refund or in loss of revenue which I know has already exceeded what they could/should have refunded me.

Keep us updated. We must keep these slugs in the public eye to save others from the same fate.
