There are numerous scams based on the idea of free or almost free power generation in your home.
No-one enjoys paying the electricity bill so it doesn’t take much to interest people in an alternative to the big electric suppliers.
This scam below is one of the stupidest in a while.
”Did you know that Australia had one of the most gifted minds and brilliant inventors of all time?
I guess you didn’t
Unaipon’s biggest invention was a ground-breaking alternative power generator that was powered by nothing more than the Earth’s magnetic field.
Rumours say that some physicians screamed when they first saw it.
His invention became a threat to him and he was killed by this large energy companies.”
This is appalling stuff. The scammer thinks the word “physicians” means people who work in the field of Physics – not true.
The Earth’s magnetic field is very powerful because of it’s enormous size but it is incredibly weak at any specific point. The tiniest magnet you can buy can easily make a compass needle move away from magnetic North and hence is stronger at that point than the Earth’s magnetic field. You’re not going to get worthwhile power from something so weak.
And to claim the person was killed by an energy company.
How ludicrous can you get?
Australians would not believe such drivel and neither should anybody else.
