There is a genuine product called a Patriot Power Generator and it’s for sale in America.
It is like it sounds but also things you don’t expect. The basic version contains:-
- a power generator
- Solar Panels
- a 72 hour survival food kit
- water filter
- multi tool
- reports about the power grid problems etc.
There are endless spam emails trying to sell these devices.
I can’t imagine these things selling well in the UK except for camping or caravans. But in America some people have the mind-set of not trusting the government and thereby wanting to take precautions against various extreme eventualities such as a long term power outage.
Californians already know what power outages are like – thanks to the days of the Enron Corporation.
The email selling these power generators focuses on creating paranoia
“It’s 8:47 am and people are panicking in the streets…
We are now in a state of emergency.
The look of fear in your family’s eyes hits you like a punch in the guts”
There’s lots more of this stuff.
Seems a very nasty way to sell power generators.
