Josh Sybrowsky CREO Design Corp Falsely Poses as an Engineer to Draw Inventions for the USPTO; Total Fraud Lincoln, California
3rd of Jan, 2012 by User718639
Josh Sybrowsky poses as an engineer who can create drawings to file as a patent with the USPTO. He advertises on Guru.com and other areas online. Although he seems like a nice guy when you talk to him, little do you know that he's a scam artists. He has connections in China with various manufacturing companies there. He has the Chinese design the invention then he takes their plans, draws them up as if they are his own, takes full credit for the "invention" then expects to get royalties off the work of others (unsuspecting Chinese who don't know what's going on). We never received the plans. We paid him several thousand dollars and have nothing. Because we wanted him to design the project (as he was paid to do) and not take credit for an invention the Chinese were designing for us, it stopped the process. Furthermore, he wanted us to wire almost $20,000 into an offshore Hong Kong account which turned out to be HIS account. He "promised" he would forward the money to the company creating the molds for the invention. We weren't going along with this scam because it didn't make sense that we couldn't forward the wired funds directly to the company at hand instead of Josh Sybrowsky's personal offshore account. This is when our attorney said, "HELL NO!" This was the first red flag. There were many others that led us to believe he preys on innocent entreprenuers who have an invention idea, he has the Chinese design it, then Josh Sybrowsky takes all the credit while enjoying monthly royalties off an invention he never designed. The Chinese don't know what's going on. Most entrepreneurs in the U.S. won't know what's going on. He didn't want to commit to anything on paper in the form of a contract between our company and CREO Design Corp. (Josh Sybrowsky's company). The law in the state of California is that if you have a verbal agreement on a business deal, it will hold up in court if there is no written agreement. I think he was banking on the invention doing well in commerce then dragging us back into court with a 5-year lawsuit of "he said, she said" to unrightfully claim his portion of the millions of dollars in proceeds in an invention he NEVER designed...because nothing was committed to paper. And he actually thought at one time he was going to get a piece of our company for this one product line. I'm sure that would have been his argument during the 5-year lawsuit, that we verbally agreed to that. This is when our attorney stepped in and basically said, "DOUBLE HELL NO!" We unveiled his scheme. We asked for a refund. (Yeah, right! That'll happen!) He won't give us the money back we paid for the plans to file with the USPTO. He won't give us the plans (because he wasn't going to design the invention to begin with). He won't respond to emails or phone calls at this point. If you're considering using him for engineering, please understand that he will NOT design anything for you. He'll use free labor overseas in China to create the design and then he'll take full credit for it PLUS royalties. If you want to know the definition of "slave labor," look it up in the dictionary and you'll find a picture of Josh Sybrowsky there. Unfortunately we are in a position of having to sue Josh Sybrowsky to get the money back we paid for the plans we never received.

About two months ago, while looking at a potential client of mine I came across listings on this website trashing the woman's reputation and history. She and her staff responded to various attacks with words like “she's too nice to have this happen to her” and “I don't think this site is very
fair”. Foolishly, I decided to give her the benefit of the doubt and do business with her. Sadly, this woman, who has likely kept her name “anonymous” to hide her own negative reviews, decided to
make a spiteful attack on me. I would like to note that on this website it's free to post anything about anybody without verification, but one must pay $2000 to have false facts reviewed and then deleted.

It's pretty malicious to do this to another person. I'm an honest guy who supports my wife and 6 children from my business. I view this venomous posting as an attempt to hurt an entire family; I honestly don't know why people do such things. I have a perfect rating on the websites I use for advertising from my past customers and didn't do anything to set this woman off. I won't be attacking her in retaliation; however, I will say a few things to set the record straight:

1 – This client paid me for research on a project in the health and beauty sector. Pleased with my work, she asked me to work on a kitchen device product. However, on kitchen device product (which is the one she's complaining about) she NEVER PAID ME ANYTHING.

2 – If you read the body of the complaint most of it is in future tense. I'm being accused of things
by her using words like “might have” and “would have” and “I'm sure he was planning on . . .” all in future tense, which is, at best, nothing more than speculation.

3 – No USPTO work was ever discussed. Had my client asked me to file a patent, I would have declined because I do not represent people in their patents; only an attorney can do that. This was never discussed, and, again, she never paid me for anything.

4 – One of the payment options, provided to my client, to have a company in China to open tooling for my client’s product. The Chinese company uses a bank named Hang Seng Bank, which is a local bank in China. Hang Seng Bank, like most banks in China, will not open an account for a person unless that person can show ID and verify that he or she lives near a bank branch. Not only do I not have Chinese ID or a Chinese address, I have absolutely no interest in having an account in a Chinese bank that has no international access. Any allegations that I asked any client to send money to an account of mine in China is patently false, illogical, and impossible.

5 – My client is accusing me of both not doing drawings for her and of passing off another person's
drawings as my own. I did do drawings for her and her husband. Moreover, her husband complimented the drawings saying that they were just what they wanted. The drawings were done by me, not in China, which is easy to verify by the CAD signature identifying the program (and language) which created them. My client, to date, has not paid for the drawings.

6 – Business relationships are very important in China. To protect the relationship that I have with the Chinese group, when my client refused to pay what was promised and terminated the project, I wired the Chinese company money (to their Hang Seng account) to cover their expenses for this project. No slave labor occurred; I respect them far too much to allow that to happen.

The only truth in her posting is that I’m a nice guy. As a nice guy, I trust that any intelligent person
reading her report will be able to spot the odd claims and illogical conclusions as an indicator that the entire posting is patently false and maliciously motivated. There is not a person who knows me who would call me dishonest. In light of such fabricated accusations, I'm would be happy to share further details and supporting documentation regarding this situation with anybody who may have
lingering questions. I see that my contact information has kindly been provided.
