Jeff Meltzer lies to inventors

Jeff Meltzer lied to me on several occasions. I have numerous emails stating that we would be closing the deal "anytime, at end of week etc." He knew these statements to be false when he told me. He only kept misleading me to try and get the project and all the while trying to raise the money. Also, he led me to believe that Meltzer Media would have the money and do the project. When in fact Meltzer Media and Jeff Meltzer did not have the money to finance the project as was told to me. Meltzer stretched me out for almost 9 months with this product line with his lies and false promises. He had me talk to some old guy that was suppose to be some big infomercial investing company when in reality they had no money to do any projects. Meltzer intentionally set this up to mislead me more. Meltzer is nothing more than a weak middle man but claims to be "Mr. Informercial." Recently, the delusional Meltzer has inferred that we had a business relationship on a different product and has sent out slanderous emails to people he knew I had a business relationship with. I have no business relationship with Meltzer and Never had one. He never fulfilled his obligation and only left me with false and broken promises. He is not an inventor friendly company. He also sent a guy to me that he wanted to do the drawing for a product because it did not work. I told him the product was all wrong and a drawing would do no good. He sent me an email to bill the guy $2,000 for a drawing – "It's the easiest $1,000 you made." Yes I was suppose to kick back $1,000 to him. I didn't do it because that would just be stealing the guy's money. I can't comment on other transactions in this venue - but to all inventors - I would make sure you had an iron clad "non compete and non circumvent" signed by him and anyone else in the room that sees your product. I would be very careful when doing any business deals with this person. Especially, if you're an inventor I would protect myself and seek a different company.

I am an inventor, and proudly associated with Jeff Meltzer and Meltzer Media Productions! MJulian187 you should be ashamed of yourself, trying to tarnish Jeff's impeccable reputation with false claims and accusations.

I am not only an inventor myself and have trusted Jeff with my product from the very beginning, but I have also seen countless other inventors who have been helped by Jeff over the past several years. Why would anyone working for you for free, string you along, answer countless emails and phone calls just to screw himself after 9 months and walk away from the product if everything was up to par? Complete nonsense! I don't know what happened, but knowing Jeff and his crew, I know for sure that that's not the whole story you're telling!

In 4 years, I never paid Jeff a dime, but he continued to work on my very difficult product and never walked away, until it finally made it! His company expects the highest of standards and produces quality results, and Jeff and his crew actually care! You're attacks are completely without merit and I see you are pretty lonely with that opinion. 29 years in the industry, helping thousand who appreciate him, makes your false accusations almost laughable!

I'm embarrassed for you! Maybe you should have considered all your personal facts, before coming on here making these awful statements. Jeff never gives up on anyone! If the product needs additional work, he will let you know right away and help guide you til you get it right.

He did for me!!

I have absolutely nothing to gain from this response to your false accusations btw and no I'm not getting paid. Simply saw it, know for sure this *** is untrue, made me upset, decided to respond.

Jeff

Nice shill reply. The facts speak for themselves. You are a slimy snake and anyone potentially to do business with you should be very careful.

#155327

Jeff in your post below under “my name” is true to your form.

Statement of facts

1. I have done over 5 infomercial deals including the one on the product you wanted. I just completed a deal after you strung me out with your misleading tactics.

2. All the deals I have done; my products are so innovative, unique and have massive potential - I get money upfront – unheard of in that industry.

3. I have over 7 patents with over 11 pending patents.

4. I have made many products from a pure idea to actual tangible units selling in the market place and still selling today.

As usual your comments are baseless and slanderous.

The BTK killer had 25 years experience killing people – so what.

Many Politian’s appear one way when in reality they are totally different – so what.

With respect to unethical conduct in direct retail environment – I don’t make the claims and only supply the product.

Your comment on reporting to “regulatory committees” is so slanderous it’s a joke. There is zero basis for reporting to these people. You would make yourself appear as a fool as I’m sure you already do.

Jeff stick to production, producing overpriced mediocre media, and don’t prey on inventors.

#155309

Jeff your true colors are showing and the truth hurts!

#155241

It angers me that after 25 years of helping hundreds of Inventors, entrepreneurs, the industry's largest marketing companies as well as Fortune 500 companies that one (and only one) unethical desperate inventor like Mark Julien would try and tarnish my platinum reputation in the Direct Response industry. I only deal with legitimate product Inventors and Mark Julien is not one of them.

As a Board Member of the Electronic Retailing Association, I have a responsibility to disclose unethical conduct like Mark Julien's.

I have reported his conduct to many prominent members of the Direct Response Industry (thus his desperate attempt to discredit me) I also intend on making a formal complaint to ALL diresct response regulatory committees and associations. No legitimate Investor would ever conduct business with him which is why his inventions are not being funded.

1. You must work for Jeff

2. or You pay Jeff for work

He is not inventor friendly. He is really a production company and not an informercial company. He tries to work deals with other peoples money and gets himself paid first for production. Jeff makes money whether the informercial makes money or not. If getting screwed out of money and opportunity is lucky working with Jeff, I would agree. :cry

I have known, worked with, and respected Jeff Meltzer for many years. Jeff is a man of great integrity who has a very big heart.

The description above seems quite out of character and reeks of a sour grapes kind of story. I have seen Jeff talk to inventors and give them advice for up to two hours at a time....no consultation fee is ever charged.

He is currently at an Inventors' Show in Pittsburgh where he is lecturing and making himself available to speak with inventors. I can honestly say that any inventor that gets to deal with Jeff is very lucky, will learn a great deal, and will never be taken advantage of.

Meltzer Media lies to inventors

Jeff Meltzer of Meltzer Media mislead me on an invention product that I had. Meltzer told me he wanted to take the product on and do an infomercial which he claimed was his strength. He told me - he and his partners would finance the project and pay me a royalty. He led me to believe that his company was financially stable. Meltzer lied to me on several occasions. I have numerous emails stating that we would be closing the deal "anytime, at end of week etc." He knew these statements to be false when he told me. He only kept misleading me to try and get the project and all the while trying to raise the money. Also, he led me to believe that Meltzer Media would have the money and do the project. When in fact Meltzer Media and Jeff Meltzer did not have the money to finance the project as was told to me. Meltzer stretched me out for almost 9 months with this product line with his lies and false promises. He had me talk to some old guy that was suppose to be some big infomercial investing company when in reality they had no money to do any projects. Meltzer intentionally set this up to mislead me more. Recently, the delusional Meltzer has inferred that we had a business relationship on a different product and has sent out slanderous emails to people he knew I had a business relationship with.

I have known Jeff for over a decade. He has a great reputation in the industry and is always open to helping others. The email above id not in line at all with the Jeff Meltzer that I know.

#155007

Jeff is not inventor friendly. He is really a production house not an informercial company.

He uses other peoples money to get paid first and makes money whether the informercial makes money or not. I would agree with you if lucky is getting screwed out of money and opportunity by working with Jeff.

#154722

:) Jeff Meltzer is a man of great integrity who would never be capable of the nonsense stated above. He is always open to speaking to inventors, and he is always honest with them.

The writer above seems to be very agitated and not making any sense.

Any inventor would be very lucky to speak to Jeff and to enter into a deal with him. Ask any of his customers over the past 25 years.
