I`m sorry you were taken advantage of. There are a lot of companies that PREY upon the dreams of entreprenuers and new businesses. They know that people are already sold on the business deal and that they need to get the word out there and advertise/promote. I feel like these people are con artists, scammers, and/or theives. I feel like their business is illegal and immoral. I believe that they can`t have a conscience to continue to do what they do.
If I were you, I would call them and RECORD THE CONVERSATION. Try to get Invent-tech to state what they said they would do and what actually happened. You can tell them that you would like your money back. It`s likely that they won`t agree. I would then tell them you will be contacting the Better Business Bureau and the Attorney General`s Office. Check with your state law, but I don`t think you don`t have to tell them you are recording the call. It could be very valuable to get a recording about what they promised you to provide to anybody that would like to hear (BBB or AG`s Office)
Definitely, contact and submit complaints with each of the following: The Better Business Bureau, The Attorney General`s Office, and any Consumer protection/advocate groups. It`s probably not worth hiring an attorney to get your money back. I don`t know how far you`d get with small claims--there`s a cap on how much you can sue for. I know you spent a lot of money. There are so many loopholes in the legal system that the law doesn`t always favor the honest. Invent-Tech can say that they did what you hired them to do and that it`s your fault that your business didn`t succeed. I think you will be more powerful with an agency that can do an investigation (not at your expense) and be able to fine them, penalize them and/or shut them down. The worst thing you can do is not to contact the agencies because Invent-Tech will continue their antics untouched. Eventually, after enough complaints, the agencies have to do something.
