Complaint / review text:
I saw their ad on TV in 1995. I met with them in their Coral Way Miami office: Martha Carazana and Jose (her husband, the CEO). Martha raved about my idea for an improvement to fishing rods, and said it was feasible and would be a success. She foresaw no problems with getting a patent. At her urging, I paid them $10,000 up front on a credit card.
I was instructed to write a check to the "Commissioner of Patents & Trademarks" for $375 and mail it to their address in Pennsylvania as well as "do" a poorman's patent.
It has been almost 12 years. Having recently emigrated back then, I had no idea that I could seek justice. I even spoke to Mr. Micheal Colitz, their scam attorney, who tried to tell me much later on, that there was another design like mine out there. I was mailed crappy info about their Expo and Trade Shows and was sent silly lists of people/companies they sent my idea to.
The only thing I got from them was a hard cover bound navy blue book with technical drawings of my invention. It was full of baloney. I had even asked for an itemization of costs and did not get one. I eventually never heard from them because as Mr. Colitz had advised, patenting was a lengthy process.
I am really glad I found InventorEd's website. I saw an opportunity for justice to be served. I never knew ISC was such a fraud and I could do something about it. I just thought my idea was a flop and I had lost my savings. This company needs to be closed down once and for all, to prevent other unsuspecting consumers/victims from being financially "raped".
