WHAT IS YOUR COMPLAINT?

Name of mass media invention promoter advertised in:  TV, Magazine, Else

Invention promotion service offered to be performed:

Explanation of complaint between customer and invention promoter:  On Thursday, February 2, 2012, while watching local channels:  15, 10, and 5, here in Mobile, AL.  I was taken by surprise, when I saw a date rape kit being advertised.  This invention is one that I created.  In November of 2006 I retained Invent help to do a complete tile and patent search.  Their conclusion came to be there was no such product as this on the market at that time. 

After investing hundreds of dollars trying to get Inventors Help to assist us in trying to have our product invented, we were continually given the “run around” and it became too expensive to continue.  So by time I had to put a hold on my progress.  I have personally gone to each local television news station and spoken with someone about investigating my claim.  At this time they have been nonresponsive to me.

So as you can see, we the people have to deal with someone else taking credit for our ideas and making a profit from them.  I am asking for your help, as the public, to try and end this type of behavior.  Please support our cause by signing your signature and general information on our petition following this letter.

Signed: /s/ Betty Iati                                                                       Date: April 24, 2012
