I had a invention and wanted my dream of seeing it to the market a reality. My sister and I met with a representative in the Sharonville, Ohio office, John Smith. He raved about how many people ISC has help and the number of new ideas they assisted to the market.
We took advantage if the patent availability search and waited for 9 weeks. After this time elapsed, we received a letter from ISC stating that we were eligible for an utility patent.

Later, we were offered a package that consisted of a patent attorney and marketing to companies. About every 3rd month, ISC sent us a list of companies they sent our idea to. My sister took the liberty of calling one of the companies on the list. She was shocked with what she heard. A representative of one, said that when they received mail from ISC, they trash it. He later went on to say the had not crediblity.

This is not all the attorney that was working on our patent allowed our application to go into "Abandoment" status. He did not respond to the inquires from the USPTO. My sister called to check on the patent and the rep stated that the atty has not responded to them.

I feel robbed and there should be restitution. At least the attorney the received pay for goods and did not make good of services should be held responsible.

If some experienced a similar incident, contact me.

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.
