AKA "Tesla Cover-up" or "HoJo"
It's basically no better than a crystal radio set. It works, but is nothing to get excited about. So to the extent that the sales page makes huge claims about its capabilities, it is a scam. -- Sterling D. Allan 16:42, 3 April 2011 (PDT)
"Tesla's Secret" - A fool and 47 dollars are soon parted!
An online affiliate program called, "Tesla's Secret" is selling plans for a device they claim can free you from the power grid. Their technology has nothing to do with Tesla's work and their claims are misleading.

There is a saying that goes, "Fools and their money are soon parted." Many cynical skeptics exclaim this when individuals invest or contribute towards alternative energy projects. They claim the researcher is "conning" gullible people and stealing their money. Usually, this makes me angry, because there are many legitimate energy research programs that deserve funding.
However, there is a set of plans for a technology being sold by a website (along with affiliate sites) that deserves such skepticism. The website claims to be offering, "Tesla's Secret."
The Tesla's Secret website and affiliate sites claim to offer a technology that has been hidden from the world for many decades. They claim that when Tesla died, this secret technology was seized by the government, and only recently did a group of "underground" scientists gain access to the suppressed files. It is stated this technology is capable of powering anything from a cell phone to an entire home. They go so far to claim that for one hundred dollars, you can build a device that would eliminate your electric bill. They will sell you these plans for "only" forty seven dollars. Furthermore, it is claimed with these plans you can be off the grid in a week!
A long winded and repetitive video on their site discusses how you need to sign up soon, because the government could shut them down anytime. It could be a month or it could be tomorrow. The fear mongering presented during their video is truly pathetic. They claim to be getting "threat letters" several times a week. Suppression of free energy technologies does occur, but the fact is that the powers that be would have no interest in suppressing the well known technology they are offering.
Tiny Amounts of Energy from Radio Transmitters
Basically, it seems they have a circuit and antenna combination that allows you to harness radio frequencies to produce small amounts of power. This is not anything new, and similar circuits have been posted (for free) on the internet for years. However, online posters who have replicated the device have reported output in the low milli-watt range. The technology has nothing to do with what Tesla developed and is not the panacea that the website claims it to be. If you invested thousands of dollars in parts, spent hundreds of hours, and built a huge setup it is possible you could power an appliance. However, you would just be stealing broadcast power from local radio stations and would have been better off buying a solar panel.
To be accurate, it should be stated what they are offering probably "works" in that it produces an output that can be measured (especially if you are close to a radio station), but they are tremendously exaggerating every aspect of it. For example, they claim once you build the device you can take it anywhere to provide a portable source of power. To produce several watts of power you would probably need a setup so large it would take a lot of effort to transport it. In addition, the technology is not cost effective. The idea of only spending one hundred dollars to build a setup that could power your home is totally false. Most importantly, this technology has absolutely nothing to do with what Tesla worked on.
Tesla's Technology is No Secret
It is important to note that Tesla's actual radiant energy technology is not a secret. You can go online and buy books about his technology, view his patents, and read his lectures. These materials have never been hidden or secret. Upon reading these materials, you will learn how he pulsed high voltage across a spark gap to produce blasts of radiant energy. These longitudinal waves were then sent across one or more coils which magnified them. The energy that magnified them was apparently from the "aether" all around us. These blasts of aether could then be sent to a receiver. The receiver would then resonate with the transmitter and "absorb" even more energy from the aether. None of this is a secret!
The folks running the "Tesla's Secret" site are truly insidious and sneaky. If you do a search for "Tesla's Secret Scam" you will find multiple websites with similar URL addresses and names. However, upon entering these websites you will not find an accurate review of the technology, but more of the same propaganda. These websites are not trying to provide accurate information, but are affiliate sites! Their goal is to sell as many sets of plans as possible, even if that means making huge exaggerations or telling outright lies.
Don't Pay $47 Dollars
If someone wants to learn about Tesla's technology, buying a set of plans from the "Tesla's Secret" website is not the answer. The technology they are peddling has nothing to do with what Tesla developed. It will not be a practical solution to power your home and will not save you hundreds of dollars a month. For forty seven dollars you would be better off going to http://Amazon.com and purchasing a few books on his technology. There are also many free PDFs about Tesla's technology that are available on the internet. You can read these for absolutely nothing.
Of course the "Tesla's Secret" site offers a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with their plans. Most people get the plans then forget about them. Some, who realize that they are probably bogus, are probably too embarrassed to chase down a refund. A few likely request the refund. The people running the scam would be booted out of the affiliate service if they did not refund as stated.
If Tesla was alive today he would be furious about the "Tesla's Secret" website and affiliate program. I would go so far to say that he would hold a huge demonstration to show what his technology is really able to accomplish. Although they may be spreading awareness about a few of Tesla's accomplishments, this company and affiliates are using Tesla's name to dishonestly advertise a product that will NOT work as claimed. This is unacceptable.
Lets Do Something!
The following is a list of sites offering "Tesla's Secret." There are many other sites not included in this list. Please use this list to block their advertisements from your websites. Also, please spread the word to everyone you know not to make a purchase from the following sites.
