I signed a Marketing Agreement Contract with IP&R Inventors in May 2005. (9months) Throughout the the contract I was lied to about the tradeshows the company had attended, contact/title of the companies interested in my patent and the action/status of the companies contacted. IP&R lied about having promising leads with companies and follow ups.

During the nine months of my contract many changes in the company came about. My Product Licensing Manager changed three times, Chief Executive Officer changed, Director of Marketing changed and IP&R changed to Absolutely New to Amazing Innovations.

I received my last report in the month of February 2006.According to the report IP&R had contacted Procter and Gamble Co.and awaiting feedback , My patent was under review and indicated that it could take awhile because they are a large company. They stressed to me that they would follow up. Never again contacted me.

In August of 2006, Procter and Gamble Co. Advertised a product on National Television Identical to my idea I had entrusted to IP&R. How unbelievable is that. It is very true that IP&R is definitely a RIPOFF. How can get Money Back?

RETRACTION OF PREVIOUS POSTS

AUTHOR: Peter - (United States of America)

Although AbsolutelyNew disagreed with my earlier posts; we were able to work out our differences. I am now satisfied with AbsolutelyNew's resolution of my invention project so that I would retract my earlier posts if this site allowed me to do so.

STEPS TO GET RECOURSE

AUTHOR: Peter - (United States of America)

I filed complaints with the USPTO, BBB, FTC, CA. STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, RIP-OFF REPORT, etc.; I also sent a request to our local Channel 7 news team advocate assistance to ask them for help. I will keep you informed as any progress is made with all the entities I have forwarded complaints to. I have contacted the AAA to discuss the arbitration process, but I am not prepared to throw more money at this without first trying to use the agencies I mentioned above. I agree wholeheartedly with your thoughts dont under estimate the power of the internet I hope we can all work together to stop this company from ripping people off. I told Absolutely New attorney Mr. Flores that it is highly suspect that this many customers would make virtually identical complaints against Absolutely New Inc. if they were unfounded and unwarranted. Lastly, I have copied the Venture Capital Firm Artiman Venture with all of my emails and complaints. Artiman Ventures is Absolutely News Business partner I suggest EVERYONE who has been scammed and/or ripped off by Absolutely New contact Artiman Venture to let them know how their money is being used to scam and steal your money. Artimans informations is info@artiman.com, #(650) 845-2020. Here is an additional email for Artiman amit@artiman.com, and the email for the CEO of Absolutely New Inc. Richard Donatrdonat@absolutelynew.com.

WE WERE RIPPED OFF AS WELL - DISTURBING PATTERN HERE FOR THIS COMPANY

AUTHOR: Peter - (United States of America)

Comment Or Question Message: Complaint Description:

We are requesting a full refund of our contract "fees". This request is based on the fact that Absolutely New has breached our contract. with our agreement with regard to the following sections of our contract: 1) Absolutely New breached our contract according to the Marketing Agreement signed and dated November 30, 2010.

Section 3 (sub-section 3.2 titled Installment Terms) is an agreement that requires my partner and I to execute a separate agreement allowing ANI to automatically withdraw the payment on the specified due date from a credit card or checking 
account over which the client has control ANI did not offer or require us to sign a separate agreement to pay our fees.

 2) "Schedule 1 - Services" (Item #4): 
We were not given a virtual model within 45 days. We have not been given a virtual model as of the end of the contract. Not making the model available, as part of the package that was sent to the potential acquirers was seriously detrimental to the success of acquiring a licensing agreement. This is a direct material breach of contract. Our concept sheet was not completed until mid February 2011 this is a breach of the contract limitations. Our assigned Product Manager Christina Lett left the employment of Absolutely New, and delayed the final concept sheet. While Christina was 
our lead contact she ignored several calls, messages, and requests.

 In addition, Absolutely New made errors by disregarding changes to the concept sheet that we put in writing. ANI simply overlooked our editing changes; this further delayed the project. Serena Soo took over as our lead contact. We asked her to make changes to the concept sheet and we received resistance. We and we were given an emphatic apology for their oversight and mistakes.

3) "Schedule 1 - Services" (Item #5, #6, #7): In this schedule it states, "...ANI 
shall perform the following Marketing Tasks beginning forty five (45) days after the Effective Date... We were told several times by Absolutely New that they would be attending "...several trade shows on our behalf... and would specifically represent our invention at these shows. As of this day, we have received no written reports that 
confirm our invention was represented at ANY trade show. The only confirmation that Absolutely New has attended any trade show on our behalf are verbal comments from Absolutely New staff stating they represented our product at one trade show; the "PGA trade show". We explained to ANI during several phone conversations, and in face-to-face meetings that the "PGA" trade show was not an appropriate venue for our invention. ANI agreed, and said that they would be attending several other trade shows on our behalf, however this has not occurred. In your email today you cited two 
additional breaches that we did not note in previous emails. The first quarterly report we received was in May - this delivery was untimely, and is a breach of our contract. At your own admission, we have not received the second quarterly report as of the 
drafting of this email. This is an additional breach of contract. Our contract ended June 1, 2011, therefore; ANI breached our contract by not supplying our report. We are requesting a full refund of the fees we paid of $7,460.00
