The way that Invent Help works is very simple.They take your money ($700, $800, $900, etc.) and promise to show your invention to a bunch of companies.

They do show your invention to a bunch of companies, with no intention of getting you anything out of the deal. They tell you that these companies rejected your idea, knowing that there is no way for you to check up on whether or not they actually did. They figure that the amount that you paid is not enough for you to come after them for fraud, which is true 95% of the time. The companies that saw your product and liked it will go on to produce it and make money off of it.

They actually have a team of lawyers to shut down any claims that people make against them. They know that you cannot afford to go to court to fight them.

There are a few court cases that go the distance, but those are so few that they still make out great after all is said and done.The companies are just too big to be defeated.

Had an Experience with Invent Help?

If you people that are posting just to slam someone for their writing don't have anything better to do then you really need to get a hobby.This site is to help people to save their money instead of losing it to a crooked company.

If someones writing doesn't live up to your expectations that is your own problem, these people are just trying in their own way to get out information so that you won't get ripped off if you ever decided to submit an invention.

In other words...Play Nice.

I agree with you, they do just want our money.Invent Help used to be called Invention Submission Corporation.

I went through them and payed a total of close to $9,500 for their services. They asked me to find 3 companies that they could submit a press release to to show that I was willing to help them to help me. So I did. They started sending me lists of companies and magazines that they said they submitted press releases to and for a while I believed they were actually trying to get my invention going.

Then one day I thought I would just check to see if my invention was still listed on their web site. I went to a search engine and entered "Invention Submission" my computer brought up several sites relating to this. One site said "Invention Fraud" and just for fun I decided to check it out. I found that Invention Submission Corporation was listed as the number one bad boy for fraud.

So I decided to write to all of the magazines and companies that were on the lists they sent me, including the three companies I found for them. I wrote a letter , zeroxed it and paid for postage on over 600 letters. I received responces from almost all of them saying the company havs been out of business for years or the magazine has nothing to do with the subject of my invention. The three companies I suggested to them wrote back saying they checked all of their mail 6 months before and 6 months after the submission was supposed to be made and they received...

I tried to contact Invention Submission Corporation but I always just got their automated recording asking if I want to order their inventors packet. The office in Tempe, Arizona that I went to closed down and moved. A while after that the comercials on TV stopped and Invent Help started having comercials.

I saw they used the same caveman and wheel logo and investigated it just to find the same exact owners.I wish there was someone that could arrest these people, they are living the good life from stealing money from us.
