marketing firms that prey on the hopes of inventors, make big promises,

patent and market their inventions, and then only send out unsolicited mailers to a random list of manufacturers that are never
These fraudulent invention marketing companies give the honest ones a
very bad name. The way they work is by offering the inventor a
marketability analysis that touts of high returns if only the inventor
moves to the next step which costs upwards of $6,000-$18,000. It
is very sad to hear of the good-intentioned inventors who were
ripped-off by these companies.
