          Michael S. Neustel, a U.S. RegisteredPatent Attorney, founded the National Inventor FraudCenter, Inc. (NIFC) with the goal to provideinformation to consumers about invention promotion companies andhow people can market their ideas.  Many inventors do not realize thatsome invention marketing companies charge thousands of dollars,yet have success rates of 0.00%.  The goal of the NIFC isto educate and help inventors make the right decisions. The NIFC is owned by Neustel Law Offices, LTD.


          1. Don't Rush. Never"rush" into the invention process. Make sure to takeyour time before making important decisions that affect you andyour invention. Rarely are there situations where an inventorneeds to make a decision within a few days.
          2. Investigate. Thoroughlyinvestigate any invention promotion company BEFORE providingthem with your invention or money.  You can visit the FTCweb site (www.ftc.gov) tosearch for information about invention marketing companies.
          3. Education.Educate yourself about the invention process and inventionmarketing companies. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and theUnited States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) have severalinformative articles for inventors to read prior to starting theinvention process:
          4. "Objective" Evaluations. It isimportant to have an objective invention"marketability" evaluation performed by a third-party.If the company you are considering will not evaluate themarketability of your invention, then seek the assistance ofanother company which will (see the Good Guys).
          5. Inventors Groups. Itis very important to network with inventors in your area.Contact a local inventors group and attend a meeting beforegoing further with the invention process. Ask the experiencedinventors in the group for guidance and support. We have alisting of InventorsGroups for you to contact.


          It is unfortunate when an inventor paysthousands of dollars for services that have little value tothem.  If you desire to get your money back from aninvention marketing company, you should remain calm and follow astrict plan for getting your money back.  Expressinganger and frustration to the company usually will not help you. We have a SuggestedApproach for you to review that may help you in getting yourmoney back.

          Good Guys

          Some of the invention marketing companieslisted on the GoodGuyssection operate upon apercentage of the money the inventor receives from theirmarketing efforts.  Many of the Good Guyscharge fortheir services, but do not be discouraged solely by their fees. You should investigate any invention marketing company beforepaying money, even if they are listed as a Good Guy. It is also recommended that individuals join a LocalInventors Group.
