InventorEd News 10-2-2000

This week the Pennsylvania Office Of Attorney General http://www.attorneygeneral.gov/ opened an investigation about invention promoters.  Any inventor who has used an invention promoter who has an office (Note 1) in the state of Pennsylvania or any inventor who is located in Pennsylvania should file complaints using the forms linked in this document.  Complaints may be filed online or may be filed using a PDF document and mailed to the Attorney General.

Bureau of Consumer Protection (http://www.attorneygeneral.gov/ppd/bcp/compform/cmplnt.shtml)

Believe you are being unfairly or illegally treated by a business? If you are unable to resolve the problem yourself, you can file a complaint with the Bureau of Consumer Protection with The Online Complaint Form (http://www.attorneygeneral.gov/ppd/bcp/compform/bcpform.html), or print out The PDF Complaint Form (http://www.attorneygeneral.gov/ppd/PDF/NEWbcp.PDF) fill it out and send it in to:  

Bureau of Consumer Protection
14th Floor, Strawberry Square
Harrisburg, PA 17120
 

You can also contact the Bureau of Consumer Protection by e-mail at consumers@attorneygeneral.gov. or by phone at 1-800-441-2555 .

Note 1:
Invention Promoters with a physical presence in Pennsylvania.  Information from Switchboard search:

Invention Submission Corp: Main office and 3 locations in Pennsylvania, 57 nationwide, also international.   
Barnette D Assoc 101 Bradford Rd # 200, Wexford, PA 15090-6909  
Davison & Assoc 521 8th St, Oakmont, PA 15139-1322
   

People doing business with these companies may file a complaint with the Attorney General regardless of where they are located.  

While not a complete list, and as far as I know they do not have offices in Pennsylvania, the following companies may be doing business with Pennsylvania residents:  

Advent Product Development:
Universal Consulting, Inc. (Now operating as Westcoast Securities)
New Products of America
 

Any Pennsylvania resident doing business with any invention promoter who is located outside Pennsylvania may also file a complaint.
