"NEW ENERGY-SAVING TECHNOLOGY", trumpets the ad's banner. The PowerWattPro, its manufacturer claims, "May CUT Electric Bills up to One-Half."

But before telling us what a PowerWattPro is, its inventors must appeal to our baser instincts:

"Greedy utility companies reap mega-profits, cheating the public out of millions of dollars every year, but thanks to this new EU-engineered technology, consumers can now SLASH their energy bills in HALF.

PowerWattPro is the worst thing that ever happened to Big Energy. The racket they've been running on consumers is rapidly falling apart even as they try desperately to prevent the sale of this device in the U.S."

Ah, it's a "device". Go on...

"But thanks to the internet, consumers are now totally clued-in to the genius power-saver that delivers a massive reduction in electricity costs. Just plug in and PowerWattPro does the rest, instantly converting wasteful use of your home's energy into more steamlined efficiency."

Does the device, apparently a global phenomenon, live up to promises? Here, an Australian news report titled "Fraudulent power-saving scam exposed" answers the question with a resounding "no".
