Advent made me believe that my product will work. The rep was so confident that he said "millions can be made and that we should start marketing within a year".

I wanted time to think it over but he kept insisting I should start before someone else does. When I asked him if the product is out there already he said not to worry because our engineer can fix it if there is a similar product out there.

I put my hole trust in him when I signed that contract which in the end I had to call headquarters to demand a copy of the contract.

Up until I gave him $1,190.00 and signed the contract, he never called me nor followed up in any way unless I called him so many times to annoy him enough to return my calls or I had to call headquarters.

He promised to have a report including drawings and a web page within 2 months but it took 7 months. When I followed up he kept saying "give it some more time". I then decided to call headquarters which told me it was ready. Why was it so hard for my rep to tell me that my report was ready?

I called and left a message telling him that I spoke with headquarters and for him to check his office b/c the report is there. He called me back a few days later to make an appt to meet with him in his office.

When I went to his office, he still did not review my report so I had to wait in the lobby while he looked over my report.

He finally finished reviewing my report to tell me that 3 other products are out there with patents. He basically told me that the idea wasn't a good one and to forget about. 7 months ago he said it was a great idea now he pratically laughed saying that it wasn't a good idea. It was good enough 7 months ago for him to take my $1190.00.

I spend money and time for a rep that promised me more. He convinced me that this product will work and even said that the engineers can always fix it should there be others out there. I feel like I was ripped off.

What I am asking for is a full payment or a complete product. I don't think that I had to pay $1190.00 for a folder.

I feel for you my friend.

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

At least it is only $1190 at the moment and not $25,000 I am fighting for from someone else.

Here is some reading for you:
Read everything carefully as it may give you some insight as to how to get a refund.

File a complaint with the Attorney General in their state, the USPTO, and Federal Trade Commission.
