Trademark Plus Trademark Plus, Inc. POOR SERVICE, NO VALUE, ZERO RESPONSIVENESS Schaumburg Illinois
Trademark Plus is run by bots. Stupid Bots. Stupid Bots that don't answer emails. Stupid Bots that will help you spend over $800 of your money and not result in a successful trademark application.   My company paid for two trademark applications through Trademark Plus. One was for a stylized mark and the other for the same name, but a character mark. The first was submitted about 2 months before the other. We included the extra fee for a Federal trademark search suggested by Trademark Plus to ensure no conflicts.   After submitting the applications, Trademark Plus sent us two reports resulting from their Federal Trademark Search. Both said the marks were free from any conflicts. Their exact statement was:   The examining agent has searched the United States Patent and Trademark Office records and has found no direct conflict of registered or pending mark under Tradesmark Act Section 2(d), 15 U.S.C. 1052(d). TMEP 1207.1 et seq..   After waiting three months for the first stylized mark to be reviewed by the USPTO, we received a response only hours after being assigned to a USPTO patent attorney. That has to be a world record. It was flatly rejected due to a conflict. Not having submitted a trademark before, we did some research. Once we had a better understanding, it was clear that the most basic search should have showed a conflict, but Trademark Plus found nothing.   Given what we know now, we realize our second character mark application will suffer the same fate. Money flushed down the toilet.   Secondly, the process of filling out the application on the Trademark Plus website walks you through what information to fill in. Before and after filling out the application, Trademark Plus leads the applicant to believe that the application is being checked for accuracy and completeness. That is not the case. In our case, it was not pointed out that the proper taxonomy for goods and services for my applied class was not used. It was very apparent that no one looked at our applications. That was the secondary, but not fatal rejection of our application.   I've sent Trademark Plus numerous emails and have received no response. Apparently that is their customer service mode of operation.   Stay away from Trademark Plus. You'll have more satisfaction taking a stack of money out to your back parking lot and lighting it on fire.

Trademark Hound Garbage NY Internet
There is such frustration with having no response from Trademark Hound. I then Googled them and to my surprise saw many people with the same problem I'm having. Treademark Hound is advertising my personal information regarding a trademark, OF WHICH, is no longer correct. The USPTO gives access to these websites so that they may display the correct information. That is fault number one. I've tried contacting Trademark Hound over the course of a few months and I received no response from them. That is fault number two. They also advertise on their website that they can remove the listing (within 2 weeks) or pay $50 (and have it removed within 24hr). Untrusting by the fact that they never respond, I clicked to have it removed and each time two weeks passed, it was still there. Do not give them your $50.

Snapnames, Media Web Plus, Oversee.net, Moniker, Kjel Holmberg, Protondomains, And DirectISnapNames, & Nidal Elkadri - Scam Company & Shady Registrar Partners - Protondomains & Media Web Plus Portland Oregon
SnapNames.com - Scam Company & Shady Registrar Partners -Protondomains & Media Web Plus ICANN has to do something about Snapnames and their Shady Registrar Partners - Protondomains & Media Web Plus, and what they get away with. For several months we've had to contend with registrars that includes Directnic, Intercosmos, DirectI, Snapnames, Protondomains, and now Media Web Plus. Back in July, My company asked DirectNIC/Intercosmos (through emails and faxes) torelease a specific inactive and parked domain name to the public because of our trademark.They did so by expiring and deleting the domain (Thank you Intercosmos!) and we waited patiently for over thirty days to purchase the name when it became available. Snapnames grabbed it first through their domain drop and snatch service and thenauctioned it off to THEIR shady registry partner and SUBSIDIARY - PROTONDOMAINS. According to Whois: Domain Name: *.COM Registrar: PROTONDOMAINS.COM LLC Whois Server: whois.protondomains.com Referral URL: http://www.protondomains.com Name Server: NS1.SEDOPARKING.COM Name Server: NS2.SEDOPARKING.COM Status: ok Updated Date: 20-dec-2008 Creation Date: 10-dec-2008 Expiration Date: 10-dec-2009 So first it was under the name of DirectI, a company in India. We called them, and they informed us that they weren't the owners, and then we contacted Oversee and they said that the domain name was being managed by Snapnames under its subsidiary: Prontodomains. We then made numerous attempts to reach Protondomains. The Whois information was incorrect,so we made a formal complaint with ICANNabout theirphony Whois information. The recently restored accurate information to the whois, so hopefully we've led to helping to prevent them from misleading the public in the future. We made attempts to contact KJEL HOLMBERG over at Snapnames, but he hasn't replied since December of 2008 (It's now approaching April 2009), only to our surprise that Protondomains might share an office with the folk at Snapnames. Recently, the name was sold to or registered by MEDIA WEB PLUS, cybersquatters in the search optimization business. We did reach out to them and they have asked us for $5000 for the name and then to f*ck off when we refused to pay. We forwarded their request as well as our response to legal@moniker.com. I spoke to a couple of folk at Moniker, as they were the only ones answering their phones and they were wondering why Snapnames hadn't responded to our voicemail messages and emails. Next We learned that the same domain name is on the Moniker marketplace being sold for $1600 as of 1:38PM EST. Dec. 22nd, 2008. We were confused and so we contacted their customer support line and Moniker explained that Media Web Plus is most likely involved in a practicethat isin likelihood violating their terms and agreement as customers of theirs. The domain name also appears on the SEDO marketplace for an unknown bid amount. All we want is our name. Media Web Plus along with SEOSEO and OnlineDomains.mobi are also the owners and administrators of websites that would tarnish our brand name, and for what, so they can make a quick buck? We have rights toTHIS domain through our business registration in the State of New York and we hold a USPTO trademark and relevant pseudo-mark registration for THIS name, and have engaged in commerce underTHIS name,and we were also issueda Tax ID by the IRS number underTHIS name and will be filing for our company 2008 tax returns underTHIS name. On March 26, 2009, Media Web Plus informed us that the name will be sold through SEDO. That means they've had literally no traffic on the name and have been attempting to sell it for their outrageous sum since December 22, 2008!!! This was our response (sent the same day): As I mentioned on my previous email, we have a trademark for the name, so anyone who, to their misfortune purchases the name, we will inform them of our rights over the name and what they do from there to get there money back is up to them. I don't think it's even fair for them to be buying into a domain dispute and then delivered cease and desist letters by our lawyers. As long as they want toengage in any activity involvingthe United States, they'll be confronted by the USPTO as using our name illegally. Who wants that? Isthat worth $5000? There's a reason why it has taken you so long to sell the name. No one wants it and would have to be reckless to buy it if they did their research. We are cool with buying the name for a $100 and that's it - quick & easy. We already have money set aside for the legal fees and arbitration fees to pursue this issue from start to finish. Do what you have to do in the name of business and commerce. Best of luck to you and I hope you guys are successful in your accomplishing your wishes and hopes. We will still always be {inserted domain name}, and doing good by that name for all our world's kids. We want our name and won't stop fighting until a transfer is made.WE sent ALL our supporting documents to the above parties, and we will not send them again. We wanted to avoid an arbitration process (it's expensive), but it may come to that. However, we will make sure that any customer, ICANN and anyone who has to deal with SNAPNAMES, PROTONDOMAINS, and MEDIA WEB PLUS will find this board posting, and be fearless in the pursuit of their dreams. Fight them!!! Anyone wishing to contact me about resolving this matter or have any questions or tips, please do so (to avoid spam) through this site's messaging process. We will get back to you as soon as we can. Email addresses of those mentioned in this posting. Contact them if you face similar issues Good luck future business owners and social entrepreneurs, and thank you ICANN for establishing new policies against those who are a part of why our US economy is bad.

Patent & Trademark Institute Patent & Trademark Institute: The Dreamstealers Garden City New York
Dear Ripoff Report Readers, What happened to me, as I'm sure it has happened to anyone who dealt with PTI, my dreams and hopes were crushed by this so called company. My advisor during that time of starting off the patent process back in Sept, of 2004 was Pat Ralston. As many of you know, there was money involved, which was always needed upfront for them to take my idea around the world, exhibitions and what not. I spoke with my family before going ahead with any financial investments with the idea, and we all put together $5,898.00. Which, mind you, the majority of the money coming from my grandmothers savings. Well it turns out that after Pat Ralston had received the money of said amount, he and his family suddenly went on vacation to Florida. After that incident, he never called back for about 2 months or so, when I received a phone call from a lawyer, Sarah, saying that PTI was under investigation for sharing clients inventions with other companies and it was closed. Needless to say, I was rushed with multiple emotions all at once. That same week, on a spanish news Al Rojo Vivo, I saw my invention on the news. Which is now called Angel Guard. I really don't have anything else to write, but to anyone who reads this, please be careful which company you decide to help your vision, idea and dreams come true.

US Trademark Registration Office United States Trademark Registration Office For trademark registration & Monitoring Los Angeles, California
This looks incredibly like a U.S. Government letter from the U.S Patent and trademark office. They wanted $375 to register the trademark.  I just paid the USPTO for the renewal, and thought that there was some sort of mix-up so called the Govt site to verify receipt of payment. This is a scam. Buried in the legalese is ... this offer is not being made by an agency of the government. They had all the correct info for my trademark so it looked legitimate enough to make me call the gov't office to make sure they got the payment.   Had I not recently already paid the USPTO then I probably would have been ripped off by these guys!

Patent & Trademark Agents Intellectual Property overcharging, overbilling, ransom ripoff Worldwide Internet
By chance I met up with a few other small company owners & were sharing our experiences about our attempts at registering our trademarks and patents, and using Patent & Trademark agents in private practice to do these taske as we knew nothing about this, but considered it important. Consistently it seems the bills from these people are over what they quoted. This is particularly annoying when one is a small company & does not have a tree that grows money in the garden. One gets the impression that once you have given these people a job, they have your intellectual property in their hands, & hold it to ransom. They also try to make you feel stupid with their but its so complicated when in fact its bread & butter clerical work. (one is always wiser after the fact!) It would be helpful & interesting to hear just how many others have had similar experiences, Edward k LondonUnited Kingdom

Trademark Capital Group LLC Brent Howells Fraudulent Misrepresentation Of Services Orlando, Florida
This is to warn all companies seeking seed or growth capital, via Trademark Capital Group (TCG) and it's managing member Brent Howells and Beau Howells.  Upon the signing of the respective contract to produce both the Business Plan and Private Placement Package, to secure financing in the form of Regulation D or 144 A vehicles, a conference call will then transpire to discuss a timeline until funds are actually realized. Upon the conclusion of the phone call, TCG then sends out several documents containing requirements: Corporate Relationship Requirements Business Plan Needs Financial Requirements  These respective documents consume a tremendous amount of time to complete, particularly the Financial Requirements.  TCG requests that you produce your own Pro Forma and 10 Year Projection statements with minimal input and assistance.  This action is designed to overwhelm you and consume your time beyond the normal amount of time it would take a professional company to produce these same documents. Upon completing and all TCG requirements and submissions, TCG will send draft documents of the Business Plan, Due Diligence Report, Industry Analysis and Market Analysis Reports (all generic) for your respective edits and feedback.  After providing and submitting your respective edits, communication will be significantly reduced. You will then receive an email informing you that TCG has begun a review of the transaction and assessment of its viability. You will then wait approximately 90 days to receive a letter stating: TCG has also gone through our obligations to date, and the agreed overall expectation that Company placed upon TCG, and determined that with all delays in payment up front and continued non-compliance with agreed dates for requested information to be delivered, that TCG has performed above and beyond the scope of our original agreements.  TCG has performed its services in the professional and timely manner expected of us and worked through extensions which resulted in the financial obligations and costs on our end of this agreement to become exponentially higher than agreed upon and without consideration on the part of Company. With that decision confirmed and the results of our internal review understood, Trademark Capital Group, LLC does not feel confident, and has no desire to continue, and sees no obligation to continue in, the relationship between our two companies in regard to the further performance on the original agreements between us.  With that said, for approximately $42,000, you are left with nothing concrete.  No finalized documents or Private Placement Memo, absolutely nothing but TCG's blatant failure to perform the services outlined in the Agreement. Therefore, I strongly discourage any business seeking capital, to attempt to utilize the services of either Trademark Capital Group LLC or any of its Managing Members, Brent J. Howells or Beau J. Howells.  This is a fraudulent business without positive business intentions.  There are far more credible and legitimate companies who will provide the services they indicate from the onset.

Trademark Capital Group LLC Brent J. Howells Fraud, Misrepresentation Of Services Orlando, Florida
To anyone considering using the services of Trademark Capital Group, LLC for either Business Plan or Private Placement Memorandum (PPM) creation and development, please reconsider.  Other than the outrageous fees for below average work, you will not receive anything remotely close to what they (Brent Howells and Beau Howells) promise to deliver. After bogus claims that my company didn't submit information in a timely manner, they drafted and sent a certified letter, effectively terminating the agreement. Without completing any of the services, outlined in the Regulation D agreement, they refused to simply refund me for the services they didn't perform. Prior to receiving the letter and, after not receiving any communication for over 60 days, I called, email and text messaged Brent J. Howells to ascertain the status of the transaction. The following are transcripts from this respective communication: From Rob to Brent (Mon, March 19, 2012, 4:09PM): Brent....could you please respond to my previous text? Skepticism is running rampant throughout my team since Corey indicated that he has never encountered such a process as this certified document... I need answers so I can ease anxiety. From Rob to Brent (Wed, March 21, 2012, 7:12PM): Brent, It's now been almost 2 weeks since you informed us that we should expect the document. My previous text message has gone unanswered. Regardless of my availability, whether attending my engagement party, honeymoon or family crisis, I communicated with you, when you or your team needed answers. As both professionals, I simply expect the same courtesy. From Brent to Rob (Wed, March 21, 2012, 9:05PM): I will make sure it comes to you next week. From Rob to Brent (Wed, March 21, 2012, 10:22PM): Next week? Is there a problem with the transaction I haven't been made aware of? Will our project ever get funded? From Rob to Brent (Thu, March 22, 2012, 9:18AM): Brent, I guess I can't quite comprehend the drastic reduction in communication. Why can't you simply have a conversation with me directly? As asked before, is there something going on with the offering that I haven't been made aware of? From Rob to Brent (Thu, March 22, 2012, 10:34AM): Can you please respond? From Rob to Brent (Thu, March 29, 2012, 5:07PM): Almost another week has passed and still nothing from TCG! What is going on and why can't you speak to me directly? From Rob to Brent (Thu, March 29, 2012, 5:18PM): I'm really surprised and disappointed in the lack of communication from you regarding the current status of this entire process. All I ask is that you simply communicate. If there is something wrong, just tell me or refer me to someone who is willing to communicate with me directly.... From Brent to Rob (Thu, March 29, 2012, 5:25PM): You have not even returned or completed documentation asked since January and youre wondering what is going on. Here is what's going on: We are sending you details in writing by mail. The documents will be there shortly then we can speak. This has been relayed to you time and time again. I'm on vacation with my family and I have told you this as well. We can discuss what's necessary after they arrive. Thank you! From Rob to Brent (Thu, March 29, 2012, 5:28PM): To my knowledge we have returned everything to TCG, which included the business plan edits...there is nothing pending from our end. From Brent to Rob (Thu, March 29, 2012, 5:29PM): Ok From Rob to Brent (Mon, April 2, 2012, 12:53PM): A review of all TCG requests and submissions indicates no outstanding submission.  All copies of previous submissions have been forwarded, with copies to both Corey and Seb, as proof of submission. To date, no letter received, from TCG for clarity. At this point, I'm not sure what to think of claims of you'll receive it shortly or I'll make sure you receive it next week. However, I will suggest that all claims, outlined in the TCG, be accurate. From Rob to Brent (Mon, April 2, 12:54PM): ...in the TCG letter... From Rob to Brent (Tue, April 3, 2012, 10:28AM): Brent..when do you return from your vacation and when should I expect the document From Rob to Brent (Fri, April 13, 2012, 6:46PM): If the roles were reversed, how would you feel if your project was in limbo for 60+ days and all that time you were awaiting communication informing you why? From Rob to Brent (Sat, April 14, 2012, 10:25AM): For the record, another week and no certified letter. 2 weeks after you made sure I would get it next week. All we have asked for was honest communication. From Rob to Brent (Mon, April 16, 2012, 11:37AM): Brent...can you please respond to my email? Why the blackout in communication? i know this isn't how you normally conduct business. From Rob to Brent (Tue, April 17, 2012, 11:44AM): Brent...please update me on the status of the letter from TCG From Rob to Brent (Tue, April 17, 2012, 4:00PM): Brent...can you please respond? When should we expect the letter? From Brent to Rob (Tue, April 17, 2012, 4:35PM): The Letter will be sent by latest Monday for delivery to you. I will upon delivery of the letter send an email with instruction. From Rob to Brent (Tue, April 24, 2012, 5:00PM): Brent...did the letter go out yesterday? From Rob to Brent (Tue, April 24, 2012, 6:42PM): Brent...can you respond? From Brent to Rob (Tue, April 24, 2012, 7:37PM): Yes it did go out already. From Rob to Brent (Tue, April 24, 2012, 7:47PM): Thanks ______________________________________________________________ So basically, on February 5, 2012, we received an email from Brent J.

What the letter contains are false allegations that we didn't submit all our requirements and that they would effectively terminate the relationship.  Additionally, while we received no communication or production on our respective transaction, Brent Howells and Beau Howells had used our money to take an elaborate vacation. These individuals are incredible, unprofessional and lack integrity.  To date, I have requested on several occasions to refund the fee for not fulfilling the Regulation D services.  I have received no responses or replies. I have reported this matter to the Better Business Bureau, Federal Trade Commission, the Florida Attorney General, Federal Bureau of Investigation, US Secret Service and have retained an attorney to have this matter litigated at the Ninth Circuit Court of Florida.

Patent & Trademark Institute Took My 11K and Ran New York New York
In 2007-2007 These b******s Lied to me, made a fool of me and Stole $11,000 of my very hard earned money. My story is exactly live everyone else's here, they told me I had a great Idea, told me it could work and they would help me get a patent and bring it to market. We all know how the story ends, they got rich and we got screwed. That is not why I am writing this, my purpose is this, since the FTC froze their assets, it is reasonable to assume that there is at least some of the $65,000,000 in an account somewhere, and to be honest, I would like some, if not all of my money back. If anyone is interested in starting a class action lawsuit with me, I am open to all options. You can bet your bottom dollar they are scamming hard working people out of their money with yet another scheme. Please let me know if anyone is interested in joining me in pursuing this matter.

Trademark Construction Co. Donn Walck Contracting, Stucco, electrical Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
I hire this guy, who seemed very professional to do some stucco work, including expanding an outside door frame and replacing the door. Some pointing on brickface and electrical work. He gave an estimate, collected the first 1/3 payment, on time. Came the first day and collected second third payment. He did the electrical work and  some preliminary work, measurements. He came the third day, started the stucco and door and asked for the last third payment. He said he would finish the stucco that day, and the door the next, so I gave it to him. He returned , a week later, and did some caulking and I have not seen him since. It's been one excuse after another... grandfather died, truck in shop, truck broke down, and recently the weather. It was supposed to be a 4 day job, it's been a month. After everyday getting an excuse, he said he would refund most of my money. That was Monday, 2/4. It's now Fri. 2/8 and no check. We just spoke and he had some excuse about it being returned to him because of a bad address, that his assistant mailed it. I will be filing a law suit Monday.

Patent And Trademark Institute They ripped me off, close to $6000.00 Garden City New York
I invested close to 6000.00 with this company to get my idea patented and marketed. I took the money from my credit card using a check now I am stuck having to repay my credit card company. The company assured me that I had a great idea that would bring me in alot of money. they kept pressuring me after I paid the application fee to send them money other wise they would not be able to move further on with my idea and someone else can beat me to it, so I used a credit card check to pay down the first half of my money, when i got no reply from them i decided to call and see what was taking place i received no answer, the phone kept ringing. i was finally able to get in contact with one of the employees that was helping me with my idea and when i spoke to him he said that he no longer works for the comany and when i asked about my idea he gived me another phone number to call, which was the law office that was put in charge of closing down PTI, all i was told by him is he cannot tell me anything. i want my money back, they think that it is ok to do stuff like this to innocent people, they have no idea how hard we work to make ends meet and now be stuck having to repay something i have nothing to show for, i contacted the back to see if they would be able to help refund my money but they said that since i used a check and I signed it they cannot refund me anymoney if i had used the credit card then maybe i would have gotten back my money, i cannot understand that since the check is what they sent me to use from my credit card. If anyone can help please email me. Evelyn dania, FloridaU.S.A.

Inventor's Helpline - Patent And Trademark Institute FRAUD, FRAUD, FRAUD! ripoff Roslyn Heights New York
I was taken for about $11,000 USD by the Investor's Helpline for patenting an idea I had. I am now aware that their business has been shut down by the FTC in the following Court action: FTC v International Product Design Inc. No. 1:97-cv-01114-avb. I have been told by the receiver's office Stenger Law that there is no hope this Company will be re-instated. I am now realizing that I am one of numerous victims in this fraudulant operation by the owners of this Company. I am very disappointed to find out that such a Company was able to operate for so long even though there had been legal problems associated with the Company since as far back as 1975. I am a Canadian who, perhaps, was too naive and trusting for allowing this Company to make me believe they had my best interests in mind. I am not holding any hopes to recover any of the money I have lost but perhaps just writing this letter will make me feel better. I have given up on my idea as I can not afford to persue it anymore. I have 5 friends/relatives involved with me who also lost money in this venture who I feel terrible for. I would like to warn anyone who is contemplating approaching such an invention promoting company to be aware of the extreme dangers in doing so. It would probably be better if you would contact a reputable Patent Lawyer in your area rather than taking a chance with a Company such as this. To the Owner of the Company Julian GUMPEL and all of the other associates, I only have one hope is that you go to Jail for a very long time to reflect on how you have affected all of these victims and I know one day you will have to answer for your actions. Thank you to the FTC for stopping these crooks and thank you RIPOFF for allowing me to vent my frustration about this matter. Sincerely Jean Castlegar, British ColumbiaCanada
