Thank goodness I found this site. I sent in my idea to Invent Tech (it is a revolutionary new way to eat fingerfoods) so that I could receive their "free" new product market analysis to help me get an idea of how my invention might be developed and marketed.

What I got in the mail was a photocopy of a worthless piece of information that I could have found out for myself and it actually has nothing to do with my type of invention at all!

I spoke with
Andrew Wright on the phone a couple of times prior to receiving the info. He told me that he loved my idea and that it could be marketed around the world. He has since called a few more times but I just let my answering machine pick up because I am so disappointed in the information packet with CD and DVD. (not to mention the $895. plus shipping and handling they want!)

Now that they have a photocopy of my idea, can they legally do anything with it? I had checked with the Florida BBB before sending in my drawing and they checked out ok. I wonder why nothing showed up bad about them.

I'm just glad I didn't send them any of my hard earned money.

Thank you for letting me vent.

In 2002 Invent-Tech teamed up with Ronald Perlstein (Discount Diamonds PA / Criminal and Class Action). Expert witness, William R. Lieberum, wrote about the case: ..."some of the larger cases are Manookian v. American Express, a large and very publicized class action suit, and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Ronald Perlstein / Ronald Perlstein Discount Diamonds (Criminal and Class Actions ).
He can be found as a jewelry scammer in a case of Commonwealth of PA against Ronald Perlstein in the Fortune Small Business (2/4/03) article "The Imperfect Pitchman" by Carlye Adler."

Perlstein started "Concept Media" (www.infoworx.com) a media company who, according to literature I have from an inventor, indicated with Invent-Tech they do the infomercial side of things.

Looking through the ID website and that of the "Scam Alerts" I don't find a clear spot to report potential marketing company scams, but I have just dealt with one I think warrants at least a warning. 

The company is Invent-Tech, located in Coral Gables, Florida.  They called me after I inquired for more information in response to I believe an e-mail message.  That they are an invention marketing company was obvious immediately from their sales pitch, although they tried to avoid admitting it at first when I asked.  Their story was typical, that they know how to market an invention, have contacts, etc.  When I told the representative I am out of prototypes he said that using one was unnecessary.  When I told him I thought that was actually a big problem the rep said they market the product with "3-dimensional technology", explaining that means printed graphics.  When I asked about interactive CDs the rep said that was unnecessary too, adding that it was too expensive anyway.  I recalled having sent his company the address of my product's website along with my inquiry, but the rep said he hadn't seen it yet.  Because he hadn't I told him that the product already has two U.S. patents and several foreign, either issued or pending, and up to a year ago had been licensed to a large local company that failed financially.  When I asked the rep with that in mind what he could do for my product he seemed much less friendly but pressed on with his sales pitch anyway.  When I asked whether his company was an advertiser in Inventors Digest he said no and asked what it was. I explained and said that I wouldn't do business with any company that didn't because I consider it a measure of credibility due to basic screening by Inventor's Digest and the United Inventors Association.  I told him that I make this my policy because I don't consider checking the FTC's database for sanctions sufficient.  After this the rep angrily criticized my policy as unnecessary and meaningless, in the course of which he blurted out "Private inventors don't know _____! (expletive)"   At that point I told him I didn't think we could do business and hung up.

I have been through a least ten years of working very hard to get my product licensed into manufacturing.  I would strongly suggest you at least post a "watch" warning about this company.

The two U.S. patents I mentioned above by the way, the second a CIP of the first, I wrote, applied, and "prosecuted" with very little or no Office Action objection, based solely on David Pressman's book "Patent It Yourself" and not a single word of assistance from any attorney.
