WHAT IS YOUR COMPLAINT?
Name of mass media invention promoter advertised in: TV
Invention promotion service offered to be performed: Patent search image rendering of product, creation of product sample and important product strategy with manufacturers.
Explanation of complaint between customer and invention promoter:
The attached correspondence was relative to many attempts to obtain refund of $10,000 which I sent to Davison to process my invention of the MAMMOGRA BRA.
Subsequent to not being able to speak with Jeremy Harle whom I was told had left the company, I spoke with a Ms. Lu-zinski who was evasive is how I could refund.
I wrote to FTC and was told that they do not assist in individual cases. I wrote to the Attorney General in that area, and they never replied. I did not know to whom else I could write to until my last conversation with someone at the USPTO office and got your address. I learned that there was a $26mil settlement by Davison for having ripped off clients.
One Sunday morning while looking at CNN, I saw about a ten second picture of my invention. I called Davison inre to what I saw and was put on hold and no one ever spoke to me, so I eventually hung up the phone.
My relationship with Davison has been one of deception also, always bringing me to tears, and wondering what were the next steps I could take. The enclosed picture of the bra was drawn by Davison subsequent to them having initially worked with me:
I was ELATED when I learned of your address and this is why you are receiving this letter from me.
Attached is correspondence sent to them intermittently, I am hopeful you will resolve the matter so that I would re-ceive a refund of $10,000 I sent.
Thank you and Respectfully,
Marcia Miranda DeGraff
