*Consumer Comment: How did this turn out
Inventhelp is a scam; they are in violation of the consent decree covered under the FTC violation from 1994 where they agreed to no longer rip people off through their sales/representative tactics. Their Seattle Rep. Jim Folger blatantly lied about the services, gave a verbal appraisal of our invention, talked us out of a patent. He completely misrepresented what this company does. Basic info package is still incomplete to this day, to the tune of $945.00, have paid over $8800.00 for invention submission services that they have no intention of seeing through. Checked out their Database of "elite companies" and contacted every one I could find(they only supply you with a co. name and state)several companies stated that they had never received my "presentation brochure"- one company owner told me that Inventhelp was a scam and that they were a bunch of "shysters". This coming from one of their supposed companies interested in new inventions from Inventhelp I have filed two FTC complaints since they have definitely violated the decision handed down upon them by the FTC in 1994.
Contacted the company and their "manager" Angela Beauchamp is a pit bull intent on not refunding my money she continually argues and harrasses you every step of the way. Going on two months of arguing and she still wont return my money. This company is making 20 million a month off of people that hope to have their inventions taken seriously and sent to the right companies to get their products marketed.Most people have borrowed to the hilt to get their product marketed and this is what this company preys upon. When this company gets into hot water with the Feds, they change their name.They are no longer Invention Submission Corp; now they are Inventhelp.
They are still a part of Intromark, the mother company and they use their own in-house finance company Universal Finance company, which is now called Universal Payment Corp; do you see a pattern here? All owned by Intromark! This company needs to be put out of business and the peoples' money returned. Would have found out they were a scam a lot sooner had they not changed their name to Inventhelp; they have offices all over the country running this same scam over and over. Every day another person gets ripped off, supposedy the Seattle office makes 2 million a month.
Their Rep.in Seattle, Jim Folger is an assistant pastor of a church in kent, Wa. he uses his "people" skills to snow people out of millions. Daily. They have just moved their Federal Way , WA. office to another location in the last 4 months since things are going poorly for them here in WA. Several people besides myself have wised-up and are going after them! Including Inventhelps own EX-district manager, who has filed a law suit against them. Deborah Orting, Washington
