PowerPro electricity saver scam

It appears that the PowerPro scammer are hitting social media and advertising platforms with this scam device. This is a scam review to try and make it look a legitimate product:

and a news article from the UK

These devices have been around for many years and don’t work.

Scammers are also getting cleverer as they are now also posting reviews on platforms like Youtube (like this) and their own review websites to make the products look legitimate when one does a search to see if they work. Once these sham reviews and advertisements are removed, they quickly pop up again.

Don’t fall for this as you will lose your money.

Thanks for the warning. Hope you reported the YourTube. (For additional/supporting info you can put in the BBC News link.)

Has been done, but Youtube seems to be unable to stop it being reloaded as soon as it is removed. It would be good if they had a video scanner which could automatically detect past videos which had been removed and then have them deleted. This would annoy the scammers as they would have to create a new unique video each time they wish to upload rather than just reloading the same thing over and over again.
