Ripped off Just Under $

Every conversation I had with Davidson representatives involved at some point during the conversation was about the mold. I was reassured that the mold would be mine.

I understand that a lot of "legal" issues were solved in the design of Davidson's Deceitful contract.

1. Davidson is only accepting payments through routing numbers of customers checking account or Debit cards.
This deception by design is to insure the customer cannot get their money once they realize they've been deceived by disputing the matter.

2. The fact that I gave a copy of my patent to Davidson, and the product they present to me only signifies an attempt to get around the very patent I presented in good faith. I still get calls and emails from Davidson about patenting the product I already have patented. It's just Davidson looking for more money, Davidson has no intent to produce a product. Just to seek the next thing they can extort money from customers. Deceptive Business Practices.

3.During the process, After Davidson had been paid in full, of course, I repeatedly asked to be copied any information being "pitched" to a potential manufacturer or business. ,Owning the patent, my intellectual property, I am entitled to any information being submitted, I never even got a response. I have no evidence that Davidson ever 'Pitched" my Patented idea. Once Davidson gets your money, the "game" is over.
Deceptive Business Practices.

4.The" release" in the contract , Of which, none of the details are given about the "release" in the contract ,it just says release, until Davidson has your money and you've been "taken". Then and only then will the realization set in that this is nothing more than a "PONZI SCHEEM," then and only then are the details given Releasing Davidson from all responsibility. Deceptive Business Practices. I will never sign that document under the present circumstances.

5. I understand now, that concerning the line of conversation leading up to the customer handing over to Davidson payment in full for an inferior product and service, if they are lucky enough to receive it, Doesn't matter. Because Davidson has covered the premeditated deception clause. "Entire Agreement; Oral Representations Void. I have heard testimonies of former employees of Davidson.
Deceptive Business Practices.

Don't do business with Davidson

refund

My complaint is to get my refund from an invention service company, i've paid them 695 to secure a licensing deal on my invention idea, I feel there was no service that was usable for me. They also stringed me along for few months by sending me useless information and spreading out phone appointment meetings every 2 or 3 weeks apart keeping me in the dark. I think they spreaded the appointments out over the span of 2 months so my bank couldnt be able to help get my money back because i gave them the money 2 months prior, Only after the 2 months passed then they asked for more money to create a prototype. During our first initial conversation I made it clear to them I couldnt pay alot of money for any other services. Darryl were my contact he assured me that I did'nt have to worry about the cost of any future payments. Being they had other payment plans, contingency for one. I honestly feel they kept me in the dark for over 2 months so they could keep the 695 dollars if I tried asking for a refund wich I did. My bank said it been over 2 months and they couldnt help, So this must of been their intention. My complaint is simple i've paid for something with nothing to show for.

If a business operates on the mission statement that the customer is always right and someone is not pleased with their end product, you should attempt to satisfy them instead of continue to charge them to help them, correct?? This seems to be an alien thought to some people and corporations!!! What is wrong with our society when this happens?? Maybe that is why other countries are pulling away from us in this technology age. The bright "common" inventors are being used and abused for corporate profits.

I agree with the complaints from the individuals who were taken by Davison. If you continue to check out other complaints from other websites concerning Davison, you will notice a familiar ring to the voices who have the gusts to post their legitimate complaints online. The Managing Senior Directors of New Product are very convencing to obtain your money, despite what you read. If a red flag comes up and you are hesitant, they do have a come back. I want to direct you too Scam Radar.com and read the complaints about Davison and another website Davison Investegration Complaint and notice the post 2009-09-22 by lak87. I have filed a formal complaint with the Federal Trades Commission and with the Attorney General Office, Pittsburgh, PA. I feel that it's extremely important to follow through with your complaints to these departments. Your voice is important, if your complaint is legitimate you have nothing to fear and you will get satisfaction in telling your story. I feel its important to make the public aware of these experiences, so that no ne else falls into the trap of misleading sales reps from this company.

They didn't get any of my money, but they wanted almost $800 to start up the process. And that was just to see if they could get a company interested in my idea. After that it could cost like $8000 to $15, 000 to see it through and maybe more. I understand that it does cost money to invent, come up with the prototype, etc, but they can make their money after it starts selling, I would think. I told him that I was hesitant and not wanting to go through with it and I got a snotty email. So, I sent him one back and told him to stop calling me. He called a few more times after that and I recognized the number and I just never answered. It has now been a few weeks since he has called. I am glad I did not give him any money.

If you are smart, you will steer clear of Davison Invention, located in RIDC Park in the Pittsburgh area.

I briefly dated one of their salespeople and he himself told me the company was a complete ripoff. [And why would an invention company need salespeople? That in itself should be a big red flag.]

All that Davison does to get your invention in front of major retailers is this: they send an email to the company (Target, Walmart, etc.). That's it.

There's NO follow-up, NO visits to the retailer, NO other effort put forth other than sending an email (which in all likelihood is simply deleted.)

If the retailer doesn't respond (they most likely won't), the inventor is out his or her money they paid Davison.

Think about it: in 2008, Davison paid a settlement of $10.7 million to the federal government to address claims that they were ripping off inventors.

I know nothing about how to get an invention to market, but knowing what I know about Davison, I wouldn't give them a dime of my money for any reason whatsoever. Avoid Davison like the plague!
