The Amway Scam

It’s hard to imagine that an entire corporation could be based off a scam, but that’s exactly the case for Amway and Quixtar. This article will detail exactly how Amway and Quixtar work, and why it is a scam you should avoid. Because Amway and Quixtar are the same company, I’ll just be using the name Amway from now on.

Like many scams, the Amway scam is based off people’s urge to be rich, drive a nice car, and live in a big house. People often want to live that lifestyle so badly that they will do anything and believe anything in order to achieve that goal. This is where Amway steps in. The main idea is that you become a salesperson and sell Amway products, such as vitamins, electronics, and various other goods. Of course, you won’t get rich selling knifes door to door, but that’s where the twist comes in. The idea is that the more people you recruit into Amway, the more money you’ll make because you’ll get a percentage of their earnings. If the people you recruit, recruit more people in turn, you’ll get a percentage of that, and so on. So the main idea is to recruit as many people as possible, and have an automatic stream of revenue. Does this sound like a pyramid scam to you? Well, it basically is. Technically, it’s labeled as multi-level-marketing, which is nothing more than a legal pyramid scam.

So where is the harm? So far, everything sounds legitimate, and harmless. That’s exactly what they want you to think. The fact of the matter is that once you’re recruited, Amway starts selling things to YOU. That’s right, anything from motivational tapes, to motivational books, to tickets for conventions and rallies, and even entire bus trips to rallies. Through a series of talks, basic brainwashing techniques are used in order to convince you that you will succeed and become a millionaire, but only if you buy motivational tapes which hold the key to your success. In fact, it is commonly said that Amway rallies resemble religious revival meetings more than anything else. Now, I’m not trying to knock on religious revival meetings, but Amway preys on your desperation, and preys on your dreams. They tell people over and over that they will become rich if they follow the Amway business plan. Unfortunately, virtually the only people making any sort of significant money are the people selling motivational tools at the rallies and so forth. According to Amway itself, the average amount of money people make at Amway is a measly $1,400 a year. This doesn’t include all the money for meetings, rallies, travel, books, tapes, and everything else. When all is said and done, most people actually lose their money, friends, and a huge amount of time.

The questions no HHO seller can answer

Some people claim that a miraculous new technology called HHO can dramatically reduce the amount of gas used in your car. The idea is to use electricity from the car’s alternator to separate hydrogen and oxygen from water. This gas, called Brown’s gas, or HHO, is then fed back into the fuel mixture which is then fed into the internal combustion engine. Supposedly, HHO make the burning of gas more efficient, and thus lowers the gas mileage of the car. This all sounds reasonable; there are some big questions that remain to be answered.

Why isn’t HHO made by any major car manufacturer?

Ford, GM, Toyota, Chrysler, you name it. No major automobile manufacturer has ever acknowledged HHO as a legitimate and proven technology. People who sell HHO related products have many excuses. Some say that the car companies are involved in some conspiracy theory with the gas companies. Unfortunately there is no evidence for this. Instead, what we see is that cars with higher gas mileage sell better, thus creating incentive for car makers to create low gas mileage vehicles. Other HHO sellers say that HHO is so new that it hasn’t been incorporated into vehicles yet. This argument is laughable, especially since scammers have been selling HHO products for years.

How can such a small amount of HHO gas improve gas mileage by so much?

This is another fun little question that HHO sellers have a lot of trouble answering. Electrolysis doesn’t make very much HHO. In fact, you would need a huge HHO system in order to produce barely enough gas to power a lawnmower on idle. Now think about this for a second; how can such a miniscule amount of HHO gas be enough to make any noticeable difference in a car engine? The answer is that it can’t.

AT&T Pay as you go phones cost more than you think!

This article is mainly about AT&T Go phones, but plans from other companies such as Verizon are very similar. Cell phone plans can be very expensive, and range anywhere from thirty to a hundred dollars a month. This is a lot of money, especially if you don’t talk on your phone very much. Why pay thirty dollars a month for a phone you only plan to use a couple days a month?

If you don’t talk on your phone much, you may have already looked into pay as you go phones, of simply Go Phones. Unfortunately, these phones can also cost you a fortune to use. First of all, there is a daily activation fee of one dollar for AT&T. This means that if you don’t use your phone for a particular day, you don’t get charged anything. This may seem nice, but there’s a catch which will be discussed later. Every day that you use the phone, you are automatically charged a dollar. And by ‘using the phone’ I mean it. If a telemarketer calls you, and you say ‘no thank you’ and hang up immediately, it’s too late. That two second phone call just cost you a dollar and ten cents. One dollar for the daily activation fee and ten cents for the two seconds…what a bargain.

10 cents for two seconds?

That’s right, everything is rounded up. AT&T advertises that they charge ten cents a minute, but in reality, everything is rounded up, and it really makes a difference. If you call someone and their phone is busy, each attempt will cost you another 10 cents even though you used the phone for less than a second. AT&T, Verizon and Cingular Wireless are exceptionally greedy companies that will do anything to take your money away from you. In short, phone calls are not pro-rated. Instead, they just round everything up and charge you as much as they possibly can.

Internet on a Go Phone

If you want to access the internet on a Go Phone, be prepared to pay a fortune for it. You will pay for both the length of time, and the amount of data downloaded. What’s worse is that the phone is intentionally designed so that the internet button is incredibly easy to press by accident. For example, if you want to see the list of missed calls, you could very easily press the internet button by accident. If you haven’t used your phone for a particular day, and accidentally hit the button right in the center of your phone, you just lost a dollar and ten cents.

Text messages

If you want to view or send text messages with your Go Phone, just forget about it because it’ll cost you a fortune. First of all, be prepared to receive hundreds and hundreds of spam text messages. These messages advertise anything from Viagra to high school diplomas. If you view a text message you just received and find out it was just a spam text message, that’s too bad for you. You just lost a dollar and ten cents.

Conclusion

AT&T has intentionally rigged their Go phones to steal as much money from their customers as possible. The interface to navigate the main menu is intentionally designed to trick people into accessing the internet. I’m going to go as far as to say that AT&T actively promote spam text messages as an effort to get people to check their messages and therefore give AT&T more money. The very fact that a two second phone call can cost a dollar and ten cents is proof enough that the Go phone just isn’t worth it.

How to save money on cell phones

Here’s what you can do to save some serious money. Figure out which of your friends use AT&T, and Verizon, etc. Then only give your number to people in your network. In network phone calls are free, and that’s the only practical way to use your Go phone without paying any money. You can either pay money hand over fist for erroneous and inflated fees, or you can carry two or even three phones and use them for free. It’s your choice.

Jeff Paul’s Shortcuts to Internet Millions, a full review

If you’re reading this, chances are good that you’ve already seen Jeff Paul’s infomercial detailing his shortcuts to internet millions. If you haven’t seen it, just imagine two girls in bikinis interviewing people who claim to have made millions with Jeff Paul’s system.

The truth

The truth of the matter is that Jeff Paul’s Shortcuts to Internet Millions is a scam, plain and simple. You really shouldn’t believe anything you hear from the infomercial because the information is factually incorrect. Jeff Paul’s scam is fairly simple. Once you pay $50 for your package and shipping, you will quickly realize that the pamphlets sent to you contain useless information. No, you don’t get 10 free self-running websites as promised, nor do you get any method of generating any income whatsoever. The girls in the infomercial lied to you. At this point, they attempt to upsell you. They say that if you really want their self-running website kits, you have to pay thousands of dollars upfront. Not only that, but they can charge up to several hundred dollars a month, every month, just to run your websites.

The natural question is if these websites actually work, and generate real revenue. The answer is not really. The chances of you ever being able to make a penny from any of the websites they give you are probably less than one in a thousand. If you think you can beat those odds, then you should really be in a casino.

One interesting thing about Jeff Paul’s scam is that if you decide to cancel, that’s too bad for you. It is impossible to cancel your plan. You will not be able to receive any response via email, phone, fax, or mail. THE ONLY WAY TO CANCEL THE PROGRAM IS TO CANCEL YOUR CREDIT CARD. Jeff Paul is a really classy guy, I’m sure.

Why HHO devices aren’t made by major car manufacturers

Some people claim that HHO devices can make your car up to 50% more fuel efficient. These HHO ‘fuel savers’ are little more than a jam jar filled with water. A natural question for many people is, if it were so easy to make a car 50% more fuel efficient, why aren’t any major car manufacturers designing, making, and installing HHO devices in their vehicles? By major car manufacturers, I’m talking about companies like Ford, GM, Toyota, BMW, etc.

This reason, along with technical reasons, it is my opinion that HHO is a scam. The scam simply feeds on people’s despair at the gas pump. People may be willing to pay 50 dollars for bogus plans and schematics if they think it’ll save hundreds of dollars at the gas pump. Because HHO is not a legitimate technology, scammers are forced to make up excuses and explanations for some obvious holes in their advertisement. Some claim that HHO is a secret technology that the oil companies don’t want you to find out about. Take a step back and ask yourself if you think something you can buy cheaply on the internet is some sort of industrial secret. Obviously, the answer is no.

So why aren’t any car manufacturers making HHO devices? Scammers tend to claim that there is a secret conspiracy between car and oil companies. This is absurd, mainly because the automotive industry strives to have higher fuel efficiency in order to attract more customers. A popular example is the Toyota Prius hybrid, which isn’t made fast enough to fill demand. This means that you have to have your name put on a waiting list in order to get one! The only reasonable conclusion is that HHO isn’t made by any major automotive companies because it is not a legitimate technology. It’s nothing more than a scam which is carefully designed in order to take your money. Instead of spending your money on bogus and fraudulent products, consider changing your driving habits in order to save fuel.

HHO scammers bend the facts

There are two types of HHO scammers. Most of the HHO scammers know that it is a scam, while some percentage of the scammers actually believe that it is a legitimate idea and sound technology. Either way, in order to sell their products, all of the HHO scammers have one thing in common; they bend the facts. The only way they could ever sell their products is if they bend the facts.

Today, I’m going to focus on a recent article written by an HHO scammer. Don’t worry, you don’t have to read it if you don’t want to. I’ll fill in all the facts. Before we dive into that, first I need to give you a context.

Context

The HHO scammers essentially claim that by putting a jam jar filled with water in your engine, you can get anywhere from 30% to 60% incrased gas mileage. There is a little more to it than that, but this the the basic idea behind HHO, or any of the run your car with water scams. The very first question that most people ask is, “If it were so simple to improve gas mileage so much, then why aren’t car manufacturers making it? Why don’t dealerships offer this magical device? Why can’t I buy it from a major retailer?” All of these questions are very basic and very legitimate. Until recently, most HHO scammers are happy to tell you about secret government conspiracies, big oil conspiracies, and secret assasinations. Most intelligent people simply waive off these conspiracy theories as looney. However, enough people buy into these tall tales and purchase HHO devices, plans, and books, which is what makes the scam so sucessful. Scammers are after one thing; money. The HHO scammers aren’t stupid, and they know there is a large part of the population which doesn’t believe their conspiracy theory fairy tales.

Now you have been given a proper context as to why HHO scammers are always trying to validate their ideas in order to fool people who normally aren’t fooled easily. That brings us to the main point of this article; HHO scammers bend and twist facts in order to fool people. In the article I linked above, the scammer is trying to say how the government is recognizing HHO technology as legitimate. Below are three points from his website:

• Hydrogen produces electricity in fuel cells
• Hydrogen is a  replacement for gasoline in internal combustion engines
Hydrogen is a supplement to gasoline used in an internal combustion engine.”

The three points are slightly reworded for clarity, but you can read the original article if you wish. Let’s take these one at a time. First and foremost, Hydrogen is used to produce electricity in fuel cells. This technology was used even in very early NASA missions. The second point stats that hydrogen is used as fuel for internal combustion engines. Again, this point is accurate, but somewhat less common due to extreme engineering challenges related to storing compressed or liquid hydrogen.

Notice that the third point is in bold. This is stating that hydrogen may be used in conjunction with gas or diesel in an internal combusion engine, which is actually true! To some, it may appear that the government is actually acknowledging the validity of HHO. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The HHO devices the scammers are trying to sell you take massive amounts of electricity from alternators, to make make HHO, to feed it back into the engine. Because of inneficiencies in the alternator and extreme inneficiencies in the electrolysis process, the engine actually consumes more gas to make the electricity than is made back by burning hydrogen. The government is referring to engines specially designed to burn gas or diesel and inject hydrogen. These engines do not use electricity from an alternator for an onboard electrolysis device. The engines or vehicles carry a supply of hydrogen with them. You see, I can write in bold too! The fact of the matter is that the HHO scammer most likely doesn’t undestand that the government isn’t referring to HHO devices at all. Here, we have a simple, and all too standard case where a technologically uneducated scammer is confused and bends facts in an attempt to make more money.

Fake videos promoting the HHO Scam explained

To sell a product successfully, people need to know about the product to begin with. This is equally true for scams. The HHO scam is highly successful for many reasons. One of the reasons the HHO scam is successful is because of its use of pseudo scientific lingo coupled with people who aren’t properly educated in science, at least in the fields of chemistry, electricity and thermodynamics. The advertising methods used by the HHO scammers depend on the fact that most people in the US do not have engineering or science related college degrees.

Confusion about hydrogen

Hydrogen is the most common element in our galaxy. Hydrogen has many interesting properties and is used in many different ways by many different types of technology. First, let me briefly explain the technology behind HHO.

HHO in motor vehicles - Massive amounts of electricity is used to separate hydrogen and oxygen molecules from water. This gas is fed directly into the gas lines leading to your car engine. The new oxygen levels trick your car’s onboard computer into running lean. This damages the engine, but also increases your miles per gallon. If you want to destroy your car engine, or have a car which is going to die within a year anyway, HHO may actually save you some money.

Hydrogen in fuel cells - Unlike the HHO scam, fuel cells is a promising technology. The majority of this technology was developed by NASA in preparation for the Apollo program. Hydrogen in fuel cells is a vastly different technology than HHO. The idea behind fuel cells is that a device recombines hydrogen and oxygen to form water and electricity. This electricity is most often used to drive an electric motor. Even though fuel cell technology has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with HHO, the scammers promoting HHO post videos of fuel cell cars, and then proceed to claim that the cars are using HHO ‘technology’ when, in fact, nothing could be further from the truth.

HHO torches - This technology is similar to HHO in the respect that the gas combination of hydrogen and oxygen is burned to produce a flame. Like HHO, these devices use electrolysis to separate hydrogen out of water. Unfortunately, the similarities end there. There are many sites claiming to make your car run on water, when in fact it is still running on gasoline. HHO torches don’t use gas at all, but just use massive amounts of electricity. The reason these torches are not mainstream is because it is often cheaper for companies to buy and operate regular welding torches, rather than pay for electricity. Of course, the HHO scammers don’t care. They continue to publish videos on Youtube and other sites claiming that cars can run solely on HHO gas just like the torches. The truth is that your car’s alternator can’t supply enough electricity to create enough hydrogen to even operate a lawnmower, much less a car.

Solar power - Solar power has nothing to do with hydrogen or HHO, but that doesn’t stop scammers from posting videos about solar powered cars, and then continue to say that the cars operate using HHO. This is one of the most egregious lies from people promoting HHO just to make a quick dollar.

In summary, there are very different technologies listed above which have nothing to do with HHO. However, HHO scammers post video after video of these devices and claim that HHO is being used in the video. Does this sound like legitimate advertising to you? The answer is no. Its false advertising at best and blatant lying at best.

Why are there so many videos promoting HHO on Youtube? The answer is simple. Most of the major HHO websites have an affiliate program. When you sign up for an affiliate program, you are encouraged to post bogus videos about HHO on Youtube over and over again, and include your affiliate ID in the video comment section.

How the HHO scam works

Have you ever seen or heard about websites offering to sell you plans on how to make your car run on water? A general rule of thumb is if something sounds too good to be true, it is. This goes double for websites on the internet trying to sell you something.

Now back to the issue at hand. How does the HHO scam work, and why does it persist so strongly? What has made the HHO scam one of the largest scams operating on the internet today?

There are several key elements which allow the HHO scam to work. As gas prices rose sharply in recent history, people got desperate. Very few people planned on buying gas at $4.50 a gallon when they bought their vehicle. Scams thrive on desperation. The more desperate a person is, generally speaking, the more susceptible that person is to scams which promise to make that person’s life easier. The unexpectedly higher cost of gasoline and diesel introduced stress into people’s lives. These people, along with me, started looking for cheap easy solutions to save gas money. Of course, scams thrive in this type of environment.

Another key element of the HHO scam is panic and speculation. When gas was over $4 a gallon, people were speculating on how high the gas prices would go during the summer of 2008. Indeed, there were news reports and blog posts of people predicting prices of 8 dollars or more. Of course, this hasn’t happened yet, and gas prices are falling again. But the fear and speculation that gas would rise much more in the very short term forced many people to panic, and become more susceptible to scams promising to make their vehicles more fuel efficient.

The perfect storm had finally risen. People were hurting and the pump and feared the future prices of gas, which forced many to look for solutions. The original HHO scammers picked up on this immediately. One very successful strategy for scams is the use of fake science, or pseudo science. I have a master’s degree in science and engineering, so it’s fairly easy for me figure out what scientific explanations are valid, and which are using fake science, pseudo science, or good old fashioned invalid logic. The HHO scam’s success depends on people’s lack of understanding or misunderstanding of scientific principals. The list is too long to write here, so I will write another article about some of the fake science used in the HHO scam. For now, let me cite one example. HHO involves the production of hydrogen gas and oxygen gas from water. Many scam artists have posted Youtube videos with anything even remotely related to hydrogen, and then provide a link to their website to sell you plans and kits. Specifically, a car which uses a hydrogen fuel cell to create electricity in order to drive has absolutely nothing to do with HHO. However, the scam artists post videos about the hydrogen fuel cell car, and say the car is using HHO when nothing could be further from the truth. You can see how easy it is for someone to think that the car uses HHO because it uses hydrogen, but this is not the case.

Scams do not exist where there is no money to be made. Unfortunately, the HHO scam involves thousands of scammers all around the world. The scam is ingeniously designed so that the head scammers make millions of dollars for free. Here is how it works. There are a large number of websites selling electronic copies of a plan to build an HHO system. Below are some websites for example:

http://runyourcaronwater.com/

http://waterasfuel.com/

http://carsh2o.com/

The list is practically endless. These websites all have affiliate programs. The programs give commission in the range of 30% to 70%. This way, the people who own and operate these websites can actually get other scammers to work for free. One of the reasons this scam is so widespread is because people are attracted by the affiliate programs, and these people proceed to advertise the websites with their affiliate ID. Every time someone makes a purchase for bogus HHO plans, the affiliates and the website operators make cold hard cash. The people who operate these websites don’t have to work another day in their life as long as the websites are up and running.

That will do for this part of my series on why HHO is a scam, how it works, and more. In this article, I have explained why the HHO scam, also known as Brown’s gas scam, works. I explained the necessary conditions which created an atmosphere where the scam would flourish. I’ve explained how people are convinced that HHO works by use of pseudo science, although I will write a separate article with more examples of exactly that. Finally, I have explained why so many scammers have jumped aboard the HHO affiliate programs, and why these websites receive so much attention. Every time someone purchase plans for an HHO system, the scammers win.

American Express is robbing you!

Recently, I got a letter in the mail offering me an American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card. Right away, you know there will be trouble:

Dear <your name>:

You’ve been experiencing the benefits of Cardmembership carrying a Card on someone else’s account. Now, we’d like to invite you to get a Gold Delta SkyMiles Card, with no annual fee for your first year - that’s a savings of $95. You’ve earned the right to get your own Card and Award Travel! - And you’ll be the Basic Cardmember, so the spending you do will count toward your own excellent credit history.

Okay, did you notice anything in that paragraph? That’s right; the annual fee for the card is $95 dollars. Every single year, you have to pay for the privilege of carrying one of their credit cards, which is outrageous! Credit card companies make billions of dollars because they have a very simple business plan. When you use your credit card and don’t pay it on time, they charge you an extremely large interest fee. All the credit card companies have to do is loan you money, which costs them nothing. That is why most credit cards have no recurring fees whatsoever…the companies can afford it.

So why would anyone intentionally opt to pay recurring fees just for having a credit card? Well, it turns out that there is another part of the story for the American express card. By using the card in your day to day life, you earn sky miles. When you have enough miles, you can get a free or near free plane ticket. This sounds like a good deal, right? Well, yes and no. For most of us, we don’t spend enough money fast enough in order to actually come out positive. That is, if you don’t use the card a lot, the annual recurring fee is going to cost you more than you would ever save by getting a free plane ticket. If you have a very good salary and spend several thousand dollars a month with the American Express Delta SkyMiles card, then it may be a good idea. If you don’t use your credit card that much, the American Express Delta SkyMiles card will ending up costing you a lot of money in the long run. The only responsible thing to do is avoid any sort of credit card with a recurring fee of any kind.

Can solar radiometers really save you money?

When I was walking into a Home Depot store today, I noticed a peculiar display towards the entrance. The item being displayed was a radiometer. Radiometers are very simple devices enclosed inside a glass sphere. When light is shown into the sphere, the device inside the sphere spins! To give you a better idea of what this device looks like, here is a picture:

Solar Radiometer

Solar Radiometer

Home Depot’s basic argument was that buy placing these spheres in your home they could convert either sunlight or artificial light into kinetic energy (motion) instead of heat, therefore saving you money on your air condition. This claim made me raise my eyebrows a little bit, so I decided to investigate the matter further. I couldn’t find any websites to confirm or debunk Home Depot’s claims, so I decided to write this article.

First things first, radiometers are small, just slightly larger than the size of your palm. It’s very unlikely that something that small will be able to make a significant impact on the temperature inside your home, so you would have to buy a lot of them. More importantly, however, is that the radiometers on display squeaked! They sounded just like a squeaking bicycle wheel, which would be far too annoying to put into your home. So already, I’m going to give my immediate thumbs down radiometers.

Now it’s time to look into the issue of whether or not they can actually save you any real money. We can address this in two parts. The majority of light which comes into your home during daytime hours is through the windows. If you decide to place radiometers on your window sills, they may be able to reflect a small portion of sunlight out of your home. Unfortunately, this is not enough to make a significant difference. At any given time, the reflective area of a radiometer is only a couple square inches at most, whereas light coming into your window is many thousands of square inches! Therefore, a single radiometer is unlikely to absorb more than one tenth of one percent of the total amount of energy coming in through a single window. Therefore, it is impossible that radiometers could ever really save you money by reflecting and absorbing sunlight. If you have too much sunlight coming in through your windows, the best and most common thing people do is have white blinds and close them all the way. This reflects most of the sun’s energy, thus saving you money.

At night, typically the outside air is much cooler, so if you want your apartment or home to be cool, just open your windows. If you don’t have good insect screens, then you can simply open up your blinds. This will let light out of your home, and therefore let head out of your home. Again, the surface area of radiometers is so outrageously tiny that it shouldn’t even be considered as a viable way to reduce your air conditioning bill.

The last thing I wanted to address was the actual cost of the device. The cheapest one I could find on the internet was about 10 dollars, although they go as high as fifty dollars. I view these radiometers as interesting gift ideas to young children, or perhaps to physics teachers for class demonstrations. It’s important to remember that you could have one of these in your home for twenty years, and it still wouldn’t pay itself off because it can’t absorb or reflect very much energy.

In conclusion, keep your eye out for new, money saving technologies, but also be somewhat skeptical. Before going outside and spending your money on a device, the best thing you can do is a little research beforehand to make sure you’re making a wise investment. What really strikes me about this whole experience is that my local Home Depot was attempting to sell them as a viable energy saving device, when in fact, it is impossible for the devices to save any measurable amount of money. I usually put trust in large companies because I know they have many people who evaluate a product before selling it. An important lesson to be learned here is that just because a company is large doesn’t mean it’s always right, and certainly doesn’t mean the company is looking after you. Radiometers are just another expensive gimmick designed to take money out of your wallet.
