The idea of free or very cheap electricity has been popular with scammers for some time, with everything from Tesla machines that create energy to supposedly super efficient solar panels that the energy industry is frightened by to devices you plug into your wall socket and never need to pay an electric bill again.
This latest one is about free energy from the earth’s core.
“The Earth’s Core is producing 1 million times more electricity every second that mankind can consume”.
”This crazy professor invented a crazy device that feeds itself from the earth’s core”.
The only thing crazy is anyone who buys into such drivel.
This has the standard hallmarks of a scam
– focus on a problem that is significant for a large number of people and promises an end to that problem
– offers a magical or ‘weird’ or long lost answer to the problem
– makes sure the apparent answer is unexplained
– states that scientists cannot understand this
– this new answer will change the world
– the answer must be available to everyone at low cost or no cost
– big industry is trying to keep the answer a secret
– big industry is trying to take down the website with the answer – so you have to view it immediately
The only thing missing from the scam email is celebrity endorsements which are common in these kinds of messages.
All the usual rubbish from a criminal’s mind, intent on trapping people into paying something for nothing.
