These companies claim to patent, market, and seek investors for your inventions. They are attractive because they claim to do everything for you while you sit back and wait for your paycheck. In reality, nothing will be this easy, and these companies merely take advantage of eager inventors. I have heard several stories of inventors losing $15,000 or more with nothing to show for it in the end.

They are a company that promises to take your invention and you to the next step and make you millions. They usually want a large percentage and some money up front.

In my experience I have never seen a good one yet. Just make sure you check them out on the web first. Put in the companies name and then "scam" or "cheat" or "fraud" etc. then Google them.
