I contacted this company in 2005 to pursue an invention. This company has alot of open ending problems. They claimed they would contact potential manufacturers, make a brochure, make a virtual prototype, trade show appearances and much more……….NOTHING was done. I paid over $12,500 and it was sent to patent office through an attorney of their choice. Just recently I received paperwork indicated the product was already patented. This was something the company claimed they would check in Phase I. Obviously, that was a LIE too! Never once did the company contact myself about the product, I contacted them for updates and normally was told the same thing that it was in marketing. I was told one time that list went out to manufacturers for my product. Shortly thereafter my contract ended and I was told I had to continue to follow through with selling the product. Approximately, a month ago I tried to contact Advent in SC. only to discover the number has been disconnected. According to the attorney handling the patent application which costs an additional $500, she said “that Advent tanked”. She claims she doesn’t know what happened to them. This is an attorney that Advent choice to do their patents so I believed she was lying then also. On December 23, 2011, I received a packet of information in the mail stating the patent was obtained by someone else in 1997. I have emailed the attorney handling the paperwork and no one has contacted me back as of December 28, 2018 at 0320. This has cost me a great deal of money, time, effort and frustration. I have lost my home, car and many other things while trying to pay this money to a LYING, CHEATING, MANIPULATING company! I would like any information on how we can obtain the money back. Thank You in Advance
