Last month, hoax promoter Mel Ve’s Conscious Consumer Network lost Angela Power-Disney, who ‘fessed up that she could no longer afford the alleged “news network’s” broadcast fees for her two weekly broadcasts. Yesterday we learned that “Hope Girl”, purveyor of the “Quantum Energy Generator”, has also left CCN, for unspecified reasons.
Spare a moment for poor Mel: with both Angie and Hope Girl jumping ship, that’s a cool €600 off her books…now how will she be able to afford her massive self-tanning lotion bills? Really, some scammers just have no sense of loyalty. Mel will soon be a pale shadow of her current self, and we will all know who to blame.
Hope Girl no stranger to scamming
What is a “Quantum Energy Generator”, anyway? It’s just a fancy name for an old fraud: the phantom promise of “free energy”.
For years, scammers have been hawking the idea that it’s possible to build self-generating machines which will deliver a lifetime of free electricity, while bypassing all known laws of thermodynamics. (These scams shouldn’t be confused with legitimate “green energy” sources such as wind turbines or solar panels, which make use of real, quantifiable resources such as wind and the sun.)
So-called “free energy” devices usually claim to draw upon mysterious unknown forces in the ether, and are invariably just a way to part the gullible from their money.
And speaking of money, it appears that Hope Girl is quite adept at raking it in. According to these figures from Revolution-Green.com, she’s done quite well so far with her “free energy” scam:
Nearly $100,000…nice work if you can get it!
Angie, take note: apparently you’re scamming up the wrong tree. Our advice: get out of the satanic panic industry, and get one of your layabout sons to build you a machine that lets off sparks and makes a whirring noise when it’s plugged into the mains. You can claim it runs itself on Jesus Power. Just be sure you hide the cord during your videos, and you’ll make a fortune from the gulls out there in YouTube-land. You can thank us later.
Updated to add: Well, that was fast! Hope Girl apparently didn’t like RtD’s take on her scam, and applied to YouTube to have their video removed. However, we’re reliably informed that you can’t keep a good hoax hunter down: RtD has been reincarnated as “The Devils Expose the QEG Scam“. Carry on!
