InventHelp Paying $1 Million in Redress to FTC for Misleading Consumers

A Virginia invention-promotion firm will pay $1 million in redress to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The firm, InventHelp, allegedly misled consumers into believing that it could help them patent and market their inventions.

According to the FTC, InventHelp made false and unsubstantiated claims that it had a "success rate" of helping consumers patent their inventions, and that it could connect them with companies interested in marketing their products. In reality, the FTC says, InventHelp did not have a good track record of helping consumers patent their inventions, and it was not connected to any companies interested in marketing consumers' products.

The $1 million redress will be used to refund consumers who were misled by InventHelp's claims.

If you have an invention, you might be tempted to seek help from a company like InventHelp. But beware: the FTC says that InventHelp misled consumers and will be paying $1 million in redress as a result.

InventHelp has agreed to pay $1 million to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to settle allegations that it misled consumers by making false promises about its ability to help them patent and market their inventions.

InventHelp, which claims to be the world's largest invention submission company, allegedly violated the FTC Act by claiming it had a success rate of over 85 percent in helping consumers patent their inventions, when in reality the company has no way of knowing how many consumers actually obtain patents.

The company also allegedly made false claims about its success in helping consumers market their inventions, leading customers to believe that InventHelp would take care of everything from finding manufacturers to selling the products.

Under the terms of the settlement, InventHelp will pay $1 million and will be prohibited from making any false or unsubstantiated claims about its success rate in helping consumers patent or market their inventions.

This is a victory for consumers and a reminder that companies that make false promises about their products or services can be held accountable.

This comes after the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) filed a complaint against the company, alleging that it deceived consumers by making false claims about its ability to help them patent and market their inventions.

InventHelp also lured consumers into paying for expensive marketing services by falsely promising them that their inventions would be exhibited at trade shows, the FTC said.

"InventHelp preys on consumers' dreams of striking it rich by turning their ideas into profitable inventions," said FTC Chairman Joe Simons. "But in reality, the company does little to help consumers, and even less to secure the patents they paid for."

Under the settlement, InventHelp is barred from making any false or unsubstantiated claims about its services, and must clearly and conspicuously disclose the terms of its contracts with consumers.

The settlement also requires InventHelp to pay $500,000 in redress to consumers who were misled by the company's deceptive practices.
