Explanation of complaint between customer and invention promoter: My complaint regarding: (1) Advent product development, Inc. in San Diego, CA 92111. I talk with and made a representation agreement with a XXX. Money was given for my invention to XXX. Later I was told by XXX that my paper work was sent to another company: (2) Advent Product Development in Pawleys Island, SC 29585. All the work will be done there; if I have any problems talk to a lady name XXX. I call the numbers that was given to me aft first and I had a hard time. I couldn’t reach any one and I was leaving messages. I finally got in touch with a lady name XXX and I received letters from XXX (Media Department) and XXX: (Licensing Agent) letting me know the researching has been completed and I will be notified immediately should a company show interest in my invention ok. I’m waiting for this to happen. Later, I called the company in South Carolina to talk to them about my invention. There number is no longer in services! I call the number in San Diego, CA, that number is no longer in service. I can’t reach any of the company officials! “unbelievable” This cant’ be real, like what do I do? Who do I contact? What about my invention? So much time, energy, effort, lump sum of money that was put out for this. “I believe in this! I need answers, try to find something, anything, somebody needs to talk to me! I had this letter a new release: From a XXX (Media Department) a contact number: For people to get in touch with her, that show interest, in my invention, (843-457-7854). The number was different from the other numbers out of service. With hope and pray, please let this number, be in service! It’s was, I talk to XXX. XXX didn’t seem to know anything, she couldn’t answer my question, and she didn’t seem to know anything about the company or the people! She said that number, I call her on is her cell# and that they supposed to have remove her number off of any correspondent. She was never in the office, she don’t know what they do there “unbelievable” considering her name is on a lot of my letters that was sent to me. From the so Advent Company. She said she don’t think the company is no longer in business. She said, she got paid and now retired and she don’t know what else she can tell me because she don’t know anything! Feeling hurt and heart broken, feeling like a fool. I had to face the ugly truth I was “SCAM” wow, all that went into this invention, a dam good ideal (product). The money, we didn’t have, went through a lot, lost a lot, trying to believe and have faith, in something those people. They took a part of me, they couldn’t be human!
