Explanation of complaint between customer and invention promoter: 

Dear Sir/Madam;

            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
