Complaint / review text:
Aprox 3 years ago I spent $10,989.00 to get my idea "out there to companies" through Invention Submission Corp. Once and a while they would send letters to say they sent my idea to certain companies none of which I have ever heard of. Well you pay fo 2 years of their service after that they call you only once and a while to say no one has inquired yet but keep the faith it could happen soon! All this time I am still patent pending-well 1-31-04 I opened a catalog and there was my idea almost word for word and picture for picture just as they had from me. I called them and got the run around that several people think of the same thing at the same time very often—Well how did this happen when a patent search came up negative for anything else like mine in the works??? John at ISC just said with a very nervous voice "this is not a bad thing, in fact it may stimulate our database companies to buy your idea" Ya Right!
At this point I just want to know how this happened when I paid all the $ for a patent, money that was very hard to come by!!! I have since contacted a lawyer that seems to be agressive in these matters so now I will have to "keep the faith" on this. Everyone please please DO NOT
ever use this company!!! They are crooked theives
