Scammers Sell 5G Repellent Cream Online and People Actually Buy It

In these trying times, be careful where you spend your hard-earned money.

Every once in a while, you come across a product so scandalous that it simply cannot be ignored. Such is the case with this 5G repellent cream found on eBay.

No proof

The ad states that the lotion is from a brand named "5 guard" and charges $36 for it without even giving away the size of the jar. But that's not the most shocking part of this posting.

The worst part is that no cream can protect you from 5G waves partially because there is no proof yet that they even harm you or your skin. In fact, recent studies have shown that 5G is most likely not harmful to human health.

This hasn't stopped scammers from taking advantage of people's fears and conspiracy theories to sell illegal products claiming to protect them against 5G. Last May, Hayvine reported that a guy made half a million dollars selling a 5G repelling cream.

The scammer's web site was eventually discovered by authorities and shut down on April 15. It was then further reported that the cream he was selling was nothing more than very old vaseline mixed up with very old sunscreen.

Talk about a scam! The perpetrator could not even add some valid sunscreen to at least offer some protection against the sun.

An anti-5G USB stick

Another scam reported by The Verge also back in May sold an anti-5G USB stick for $350.

The stick was purchased and investigated by a security firm that found out it turned out to be just a regular US $6 USB stick with only 128MB of memory. This did not, however, stop a member of Glastonbury Town Council’s 5G Advisory Committee from recommending it.

This is quite scary because if you can not trust the authorities not to support scams then who can you trust? We would suggest you trust yourself and do some research before putting your hard-earned money toward scams.
