We need all our readers to work with us if we are going to stop this blight of energy scams. The link above goes to a page that explains our costs and how we cover them. We do need a few moments of your time to overcome the well funded strategy these criminals have at their disposal.

Strings Generator May I first appeal to the common sense of all our readers. You can know when you are being scammed. The Hoon Kyiung Generator by "Tim" is a foolish scam.

The product narrative and video follows a well proven model of deception. It begins with an unlikely video of Hoon Kyiung being executed. But some basic research easily debunks this story. The only image on Google is of a Hyun Kyung. Note: Different spelling. The text alongside the image is written in poor English. Always an indication of a foreign scam.

The implausible story of the plans being destroyed when Hoon (Hyun) Kyiung (Kyung) is captured in Korea is continued with a "daft" tale. Where the original blueprints are discovered when Hoon's Colorado home is bought. Nothing is impossible. But I suggest this stretches an already "tall" tale.

The addition of Tim would have been better left in a child's fairy tale.

The scam includes a number common fake concepts. Making me think it is from the same source as its many predecessors. Including: i) Government conspiracy; ii) Crooked power companies; iii) A web site soon to be taken down; iv) Value saved in $1,000's, plans usually cost $69.00, and a limited time special offer of $49.95.

Please call your local electricity provider and ask them about the requirements for you to be paid for renewable electricity delivered to them. The rates and terms for renewable energy (usually solar) are published. Note: renewable supply always requires a "shut off" so that technicians are not electrocuted?

One of the more novel ideas for this scam, which claims you can build a generator that captures the suns radiation in the earth's magnetic field, is the idea that it can be done with parts found in your home. Or purchased from your local Radio Shack. A poor choice of supplier, as "Struggling retailer Radio Shack is closing 552 stores as it navigates its way through its second bankruptcy in two years."

It is NOT possible to build an energy generator by capturing solar energy in the earth's magnetic field. Think of the force of water when a dam is used to make hydroelectric electricity. Imagine yourself standing beneath that stream of water. Compare this to standing outside? It is true that the sun emits solar energy. This can be converted into electricity by solar panels. It is true that there is a magnetic field around the earth. But it is NOT TRUE that nature can be used to build an home/consumer energy generator.

Please do not be fooled by any positive reviews that show up when searching for this product. They have been created to win search pages and promote the scam. Google is being duped (it bases it rankings on words and links) into making these fake reports appear as top search results. If you are looking to save energy costs to support your retirement I suggest you read this article on retirement planning, a managed 401k, and the new attitude to a Schwab PCRA

As a general rule, you can assume that any product, offering to save you more than 15% of the energy it will replace, is probably a scam. There are exceptions, but they will be very specific as to exactly how they achieve their larger savings. Like a LED light bulb that replaces an old incandescent bulb. Which is very specific on how much electricity it uses, and for how much light it generates.

Saving money in a 401(k) account, managing it with a Personal Choice Retirement Account (PCRA) or equivalent, is a wise financial choice. Having fun, finding smart ways to save electricty, and teaching science to our children is life changing!
