I called Invention Submission Corp. to have them market a new seasoning I had created. I thought, due to their advertisements, that they were a very reputable company. I was informed that Mr. Arnold Newman was the only representative I could work with as he was the Regional Director for Washington and Oregon state.

I met with Mr. Newman at his office on Dec. 05, 2005 @ approximately 1:00pm. He proceeded to again to tell me that he "owned" these territorys, and that he is the "only" person to work with since at the time I was living in Seattle, WA.

After explaning the process of having my invention submitted, I felt comfortable enough to go ahead and committ to following thru with my idea. On Dec. 07,2005, I paid him $13,990.00.Pluse $945.00. I put a stop payment on the checks on Dec 5, 2005 at Mr. Newman's request and wrote a check to Mr. Newman, at his request for $13,500.00 pluse $945.00 on Dec. 28, 2005 The check was written to him directly as he told me that because he was the only one working this area, all money had to go to him directly, and not Invention Submission Corp. The checks had been initially written to Invention Submission Corp.

Now called Invent Help. I have copies of every receipt, bank draft in case they are needed. I also have the original signed contracts. You see where this is going. About a week later I called to check on Mr. Newman's progress, as I had not heard anything from him. I was then informed that Mr. Newman had been fired a week after I got involved.

It was then that I found out that Invention Submission Corp. had planned on firing him at the time they were telling me that he was the only one I can deal with. I have the name of a current or maybe former now, employee who can verify this. I have Mr. Newman's home address and phone number, and have made constant attempts to contact him. He refuses to answer my calls. It is 2007, and I have not gotten ANY of what I paid for, and ISP has been of no assistance in helping me to recover my money, when it is they who put me in contact with him.

This is a criminal matter, and I want justice! This company allowed one of their employees to take everything I had, as it appears they have done so to many others. I'm not going to sit back and let this happen to me. He can run, but he cannot hide. I know where he lives. I live in North Carolina currently. I would like to here from an attorney on this, if there is one out there looking into this scam.

Charlotte, North Carolina

Well that certainly is a new twist in this scam....

AUTHOR: John - (U.S.A.)

Also read what a former employee says about the way they operate on inventorEd.

Make sure you reference this in your complaint in association with Invention Submission

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.
