To the anonymous poster, Your accusations of referring to our company as a “scam” are false, misleading and, simply put, NOT possible. Our brochures, affirmative disclosure notice, American Inventors Protection Act notice and written service offer agreements are extremely informative and clear. We understand that customer service is vital in all businesses and is imperative when operating a successful business. Customer concerns upset everyone and our staff works very hard to troubleshoot them so communication errors are kept to a minimum. From reading your complaint there appears to a communication breakdown and you are upset. We are acknowledging your post so let’s fix this. In truth, customers are not always right and companies are not always right. The effort to curing issues of concern, listening intently and calmly addressing issues is a role our Chief Consumer Advocate’s office has enthusiastically taken on. If you are a client, we are sure that you received our initial printed brochure, visited our website and received subsequent materials - all of which thoroughly described our services. In addition, you would have received disclosures and simply written contracts that clearly describe each service offering and the fees associated with those services. When you have the opportunity please re-review the materials. One of the things you will notice is that all of our contracts and the disclosure documents that you received said explicitly that we do charge a nominal fee to repackage product submissions to possible interested licensees. As for the fees you paid, have you taken the opportunity to price out the services we performed for you. You’re more than welcome to take our service agreements to other product design, prototype, and packaging and development companies to receive quotes. We would suggest blacking out the fee structures in our agreements so you receive their typical pricing. We believe that what you are going to find is that most design and development companies charge 3 to 4 time more for the exact services you paid for with us and with no greater chance for success. As well, we are not holding you back from presenting your product idea to manufacturers or marketing groups that may assist you in placing your product on retail shelves. Inventing and new product development is not right for everyone. You have to be willing to accept that inventing is high risk with no guarantees of profits. We are in the business of building product samples and packaging. When you are in business you are obliged to pay the staff, taxes, operation expenditures, vendors, telephone companies, utility companies, and so forth. Being in business costs money, but we run into inventors like you that think we should work for free while you gain the opportunity to collect royalties from our work. Simply put, it costs money to research, design and build products. You seem to forget that it was your invention and that you contacted us seeking assistance. If you still feel as though you did not receive the services that were described to you in writing, you should contact our offices. We try to communicate in a very complete manner while recognizing the fact we are contacted by individuals from all over the world. Sometimes communications can be difficult because of cultural barriers. Thus, the great need to place all of our service offerings in clear and easily understood agreements. Obviously, posting anonymously does not afford us the opportunity to verify your remarks. Below you will find the Chief Consumer Advocate’s email address. Please send us a note describing your post on this “gripe-site” and we will contact you. Davison is well ahead of the curve when it comes to compliance with strict regulatory control, which among other things provides inventors with greater transparency and written terms and conditions. All individual clients and even potential clients are provided risk statements in the form of an Affirmative Disclosure and the American Inventor Protection Act disclosure. No other company on the globe can compete based on the quality of product design and development services at the price points we offer. We would like to note the fact that in the past competitors have posted false and malicious comments and questions about us on the internet. Instead of choosing to compete by offering economic product design, development and packaging services they have chosen to confuse consumers by posting false information on “gripe-sites”. Our staff of over 250 people and their families don’t deserve to be defamed by an anonymous poster. In general, companies are no longer letting anonymous posters on the internet get away with intentionally harming their reputations. We suggest that this poster read pissedconsumer.com’s legal disclaimer concerning personal liability for posts. For over 22 years, Davison has helped everyday people prepare and present their ideas to corporations, manufacturers, and retailers to see if they would be willing to license the product ideas. Our exclusive idea to product method is responsible for more products on the store shelves than any other competitor in this industry.

Inventors Beware!To all of my fellow inventors out there, please be aware before you invest your money on your invention through Davison.

They are deceptive. The contract you sign, seems legit....beware....if you submit your idea to them via the internet, you have already fallen prey to their scam. They have loaded their guns before you even send them a penny!! Don't let the long contract fool you.

You will be paying additional money EACH time they submit your idea after that first submission.

They don't tell you this....They are a SCAM.Seeking legal advice!
