Scam Alert : Remote Control Electricity Saver!

 

Remote Control Electricity Saver : Bullshit Scam!

Electricity saving devices DO NOT WORK, period.

So if you see anyone selling them, it’s a scam. You are better off just giving your money to a charity… or to me.

Feel free to ask for my bank account number. At least, you will be supporting my work!

Now, here are the reasons why this Remote Control Electricity Saver is a scam, like all other electricity saving devices!

Reason #1 : The Videos Are So Fake

The videos they use as “evidence” are so fake. They basically shows the scammer turning the electricity meter on and off using the Remote Control Electricity Saver.

In reality, one scammer just turns an electrical appliance on and off, whenever his/her partner turns the Remote Control Electricity Saver off and on.

What does it prove? Absolutely nothing!

Reason #2 : The Device Looks Like A Piece Of Shit

These scammers do not even bother to make their Remote Control Electricity Saver look decent.

It looks like a cheap toy from the bargain bin in the 1980s – a crude black plastic box with tiny buttons and two LED lights. Something kids might pretend is a remote detonator for a toy bomb.

Reason #3 : It Doesn’t Even Pretend To Use A Capacitor

Electricity saving devices use a capacitor to improve the Power Factor* for inefficient devices like fans, fluorescent light ballast and voltage transformers.

By claiming to control the digital meter remotely, it doesn’t even pretend to use a capacitor! What it really claims to do is MAGICALLY stop the digital meter from recording your electricity usage.

* Important Note : Capacitor-based electricity saving devices are still a scam because utility companies do NOT charge residential or small business users for “reactive power” – electricity loss due to Power Factor inefficiency. So it doesn’t matter whether you improve your Power Factor or not – you are only charged for the actual power that is used, and not power that is lost.

Reason #4 : The Man Has Nothing To Do With The Scam

The scammers misappropriated a picture of Liaw San, a retiree from Kajang, making it look like he endorsed their product.

Liaw Sam gained infamy in 2014 when he was slapped with a RM 11,656 (~US$2,914) electricity bill, instead of his usual electricity bill of RM 50~RM200.
