The latest issue of the Fortean Times (222) has an article by Nick Redfern entitled A Close Encounter of the Unscrupulous Kind.

It reveals the remarkable story of one Harold Jesse Berney, who in the 1950s told people he was in communication with extraterrestrials. He claimed he had been to Venus and the Venusians had given him permission to manufacture their devices on Earth. The most important device was the Modulator which was a kind of ‘free energy’ contraption capable of incredible things including light-speed travel.

The people who Berney shared this information with were sworn to secrecy (think non-disclosure agreement) and asked to invest cash in the future production of the device. Many thousands of dollars came Berney’s way…

One day Berney’s wife received a letter supposedly from a Venusian man telling her that her husband had been killed in an explosion on Venus. His wife didn’t believe a word of it and simply thought he had abandoned her. Some time later she received a letter from her husband and in it he told her that the Venusians had brought him back to life and he was better now.

To cut a long story short investors soon became suspicious, the FBI were alerted and in 1957 Berney was traced, arrested and imprisoned for fraud.

Berney's Modulator was a device, for sure. But it wasn't a physical device, just a subjective device designed to extract money from gullible people.

Wow - according to that video you can detect moths with your chakras. And of course chakras are real because everything anybody believes in is real. Or something.

What's sad is that Greer will never be arrested or sued for his con-games because the sorts of people who go in for them are NOT at all likely to go to the cops or a lawyer with their story of being a true believer and getting taken in. Too embarrassing. No, he'll keep collecting money, coming out with new DVDs, giving seminars, and telling people like me that I'm just being negative.

It certainly looks like a case of history repeating itself.

It shows how people can be so easily manipulated. Berney tells someone he has regular trips to Venus and they believe him without question. But didn't Adamski do just the same?

The problem we have is that people's desire to believe these outlandish claims overides any common sense they may have.

There are more than enough foolish people ready to swallow Greer's claims without question. We have enough of them on this forum as it is. Imagine how many more are out there, all ready to pass over their cash!

Greer is a disgrace.
