it all started in 2004. My brother came up with this awesome idea. We Contacted PTI and they said they could help us get a US Patent. They told us we had a fabulous idea and that a search was done and there were not any US patents found like ours. Oh how excited we all were.

We did everything they asked, sent650 for the search, 1200 + to trademark the name and then after a frantic phone call from Steve Bach we wired 10,000. Steve told us if we did not send the money (wire it) immediately we would be left out of the trade show. (sound familiar). We were then contacted after said trade show by
another bogus company in Florida. Mind you no dates or phone numbers were on this letter... they just asked us to send information on our idea.

After over a year of no responses from PTI, FLorida company or this half-baked laywer PTI set us up with ( from California), we beagn to scream REFUND!!! It was then that PTI told us they did another search and found a product just like ours. We were advised not to file Patent. What kind of garbage is this. We want our money back , plus!!! We want that company shut down for good.

Bach and members should face charges. We are not stopping here... Please if any of you have had this happen to them w/ this PTI bogus business, please speak up!!! Let's take em down!!

While I have not dealt with PTI

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

I have dealt with another firm-ISC/Inventhelp to much similar results.
You have to file a complaint with the Attorney General's office in your state as well as the state the business is in. Your state AG will probably forward it to their state anyway but to be safe......

Fill out a complaint on the United States Patent and Trademark website:
http://www.uspto.gov/

Fill out a complaint for the Federal Trade Commission: https://rn.ftc.gov/
