Complaint / review text:
This year 2016 Inventhelp of Burbank lied and scammed me. I gave 3000$ and after that 190$ was deducted from my bank account for a total of 4500$ so far. They sent me a notice saying things were going fine and my invention was patentable and a few months after they said they sent it out to several manufacturers. I was under the impression that a manufacturer would soon respond but a month after I receive a letter from a patent attorney that Inventhelp referred my invention to them and they needed some sketches and drawings to begin a patent search. So immediately I called the patent lawyer and told me they were asking me to sign the forms sent to get started on a patent search but then the secretary informs me that out of the 4500$ Inventhelp had only 1600$ in a escrow account which left me wondering what they did to the rest of my money. I called up Alonso Rivera and I told him I was done and he told me I lost my money. So I called universal payment an agency that was taking money from my bank account and I told them to please not take any money out of me I was through with Inventhelp. They agreed not to do anymore deductions but I would still get billed until Inventhelp tells them not to.
