Dumb People Are Allegedly Paying $350 on an “Anti-5G” USB Stick

If you’re dumb enough to pay hundreds of dollars for a simple USB stick with just 128Mb of storage in hoping that it will protect you from the “devastating effects” of 5G, then you deserve to be scammed.

Here at OC we’ve always refrained from judging people for their actions, but we draw the line at paying for anti-5G products. Just the other day I was reading a story about some guy in Seattle making hundreds of dollars by selling anti-5G lotion to people dumb enough to believe it actually worked. It was most likely fake news thought up by some The Onion copycat, but today I woke up to this little gem – a real anti-5G product called a “5GBioShield”, which reportedly sells for a whopping $350. If you shell that kind of money to protect yourself from thin air, you really are dumb!

The 5GBioShield landed on the radar of the UK’s Trading Standards Institute after it was recommended by  a member of Glastonbury Town Council’s 5G Advisory Committee, which has called for an inquiry into 5G. According to the company selling it on the UK market, 5GBioShield “is the result of the most advanced technology currently available for balancing and prevention of the devastating effects caused by non-natural electric waves, particularly (but not limited to) 5G, for all biological life forms.”

Described as a USB key, the tiny device allegedly “provides protection for your home and family, thanks to the wearable holographic nano-layer catalyser, which can be worn or placed near to a smartphone or any other electrical, radiation or EMF [electromagnetic field] emitting device.”

So how does this super-advanced device protect you? Well, you just have to buy it and enjoy it’s protection. “It is always ON and working—that’s why we used quantum nano-layer technology,” the company selling it claims, adding that plugging it into a USB port only expands the field effect from 4m radius to 20m +.”

“The 5GBioShield makes it possible, thanks to a uniquely applied process of quantum nano-layer technology, to balance the imbalanced electric oscillations arising from all electric fog induced by all devices such as: laptops, cordless phones, wlan, tablets,” and also “brings balance into the field at the atomic and cellular level restoring balanced effects to all harmful (ionized and non-ionized) radiation.”

That sounds like such mumbo-jumbo, but to less tech-savvy people who happen to be into conspiracy theories, it sounds advanced enough to actually work. Sadly, as the Trading Standards investigation recently revealed, they are getting scammed.

“We consider it to be a scam,” Stephen Knight, operations director for London Trading Standards told the BBC. “People who are vulnerable need protection from this kind of unscrupulous trading.”

Experts at Pen Test Partners, a UK company that specializes in taking apart electronic products to spot security vulnerabilities, recently analyzed one of the 5GBioShield sticks sold by BioShield Distribution, and found that apart from a small, round sticker, it virtually identical to a ‘crystal’ USB key available from various suppliers in China for just $6 apiece.

As for the inner working of the 5GBioShield, there was no quantum nano-layer technology visible anywhere, just an LED light, like on the regular 128Mb USB sticks from China.

Anna Grochowalska, one of the two directors of BioShield Distribution, told the BBC that her company was the sole global distributor of the 5GBioShield, but it it did not own or build the product. Still, she defended the company, saying that the comparison of its $350 device to a $6 USB stick was unjust, as it didn’t take into account the exact production costs and intellectual property rights for the 5GBioShield. She also refused to reveal any technical information revealing the product…

 

You can still buy 5GBioShield on its official website, but I’d rather you just gave me that $350 instead…
