We receive leads for those areas." The sales rep, also called regional directors, reaches out to the lead and had them come in for a confidential meeting, where they sign a statement of confidentiality, "which states we cannot do anything with their idea without their written permission." From that point the customer will tell Invention Submission Corporation their idea, "we do not evaluate ideas at all. We do not tell them if it is good or bad. We are merely providing services to them if they want to proceed."

If we get complaints or anything in regards to our services we obviously try to make them better. We try to make better metal prototypes, we are updating materials using 3D renderings, we provide a virtual invention browsing experience for companies to look at ideas. We are constantly improving. We are trying to give our clients the people paying that money a good service for the money they are paying."

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

inventhelp fort mill, South Carolina

My husband and me thought of a neat idea for an invention.  I looked up inventions on the computer filled out some info but decided against it.  The site got my info and called.  I decided to go talk to the inventhelp co.  They were very nice.  They convinced me for 845.00 they would do searches. Before I paid I asked Mr. Good "What happens if my idea is not patentable?" He said and I quote "You get a refund."  What did I have to loose?  So I did it.  When he called me 3 months later, approx., and told me it could not  be pattented I said, how do I get my money back? and he said, You dont.  

Well imagine my surprise when I realized I had just been scammed out of $845.00.  I have tried everything to get my money back, I told the PA. office Lark Blasi that I had filed with the bbb, and news media and she offered half my money back.  Then on friday I recieved a letter offering me all my money but I had to stop all my complaints.  I closed the bbb complaint but the news was to air on monday and I had no way to stop it.  She knew this and told me "sorry now you get nothing."

The man lied to me.  My husband was with me to but everyone says I am wrong.... I'm not.

AUTHOR: barb - (United States of America)

Thank you for thinking of me, since you are the only one, as I reported numerous times to various places, including a list of attorneys, who tell me STATUTES OF LIMITATION  is the ISSUE, this is not fair to me, of course, because today my idea is being sold, everywhere, there are even copycats making my idea, I just go on repeating my self over and over crawling for help, the attorneys want money up front or no response on contingency fee. 
if  I could just sit down with some one and explain each piece of paper, notes, diagrams and the letter from the Dept of Justice Wisconsin, all that I have  with legal council,  but all I am doing is dishing fax money out, phne calls , emails.
I feel my human rights are being taken away, as well as my American Rights.

I do wish you the best in getting your rewards in life, and find a way to resolve your issues. my name is BAS , bschindel@charter.net, maybe the attorney that you have may be interested in my case.

Best regards
Anyone having issues with invention company report to Atty Gen Office - Get an Attorney ASAP, legal council a must!!

I was also a personal victim of their scam and I have retained an attorney.  We are pursuing one of two possible options.  There might be a manner in which my efforts can also be helpful to you and hope to correct what InventHelp has done.

Again, please look at my posting noted above and contact me for additional information if you might be interested.
