First, I was told that my Invention idea sounded great, before I paid my money of course. I was also told that no invention idea like mine has been found.
After hearing this 'good news' I paid a total of $5,950. I was encouraged to finance the balance with Universal Payments Corporation at PO Box 2759 Pittsburgh, PA 15230.(800) 766-1110)As long as I was making payments, I was receiving letters that my invention is being shown to investors. However, last year I noticed that only one month after I made my last payment (for a total of $12,000), I received a letter stating that my invention can't be marketed because a similar invention has been found. (not the exact words, but the same meaning) I have copies of the letters and all receipts.
I can't find my down payment receipt of $4,500. However, when I went on-line to verify the Invent help Office address in Lafayette, Louisiana (4010 West Congress Street #205, 70506, there was a message on-line stating that this Invent Help office is closed.
Reason of review: Problems with payment.
