New Invention
« on: January 21, 2020, 09:14:36 PM »
I have an Invention that I came up with and I sent an email of my Invention and photos to For Sale by Inventor. They sent me a contact and they want me to give them $599.00 to do a patent search. Should I allow them to do this for me?  I did check the USPTO and I did not see anything similar to what I have.  What do I do? Please can someone help me

Sorry for the delayed reply.   Just getting my forum software back online.

$599 for a patent search is a good price but you have to be careful who is doing the searching and what you will get out of it.  I would make sure whoever is helping you is registered with the US Patent Office.  You can look them up here:
