Trina of Jacksonville, NC September 2, 2009

I submitted an idea for an invention, FIREXCELL,(Fingerprint Activated Firearm), that would use the finger print recognition, (biometrics) to access and unlock a weapon. I received a book, many bogus letters of submissions to companies and after the last payment was made, it was like, I fell off the earth. The only thing InventHelp did was, help themselves to my money, dream and left me with depression and humiliation. I have no idea how to handle this matter for a refund as all my money was tied up with the invention. If anyone can suggest or point me in the right direction, it would mean so much to me.

Another Consumer that *** the dust...

I have had the same problems with invent help. I paid them and they dent my idea to companies where a great grand father was offsetting his social security with a bending machine and another company that made door knobs and I invented a measuring device. They refuse to breach contract and my wife is screaming at me that it is a scam and I know she is right and I have been looking for attorneys and it doesn't seem that anyone is helping at the present time

I thought of this thing called the "Internet" where people would share ideas, information, and other things at the speed of light. I came up with it in 1974. When I came up with this internet idea I also had an idea for "websites." The websites that are also mine are as follows: Youtube. Facebook. MySpace. Napster(it's an archaic program i wrote lol) I also thought of reality TV. So yea you owe me a TOOOOONNNNN of money dude.

Just because no companies bought your invention or patten doesn't mean its the companies fault who marketed it. The companies just weren't interested it what you got. You need a real invention like I got. Mines going worldwide, I just know it. I just need to find an investor first. No of a good place to start?

Start with the ability to spell and communicate ideas accurately. The word is "know", not "no", when you're asking "Know of a good place to start?".

The same thing happened to us. But we went on to the San Diego Inventor's Forum. This is a good place to go, perhpas they have one in your city. Inventhelp needs to be sued. We feel rippied off too. Thanks Rick
