The Damp Con Collection

Core Conservation and Aquapol

We are getting so many complaints, and seeing so much fraud from this group of Hungarian / Romanian scam artists, that I've had to add a whole new category to the site. 

Basically they are Scientologists - religious freaks, who are targeting the elderly, and churches, town halls and the like - and selling them massively expensive (£4000 to £5000 a time) flying saucer / beehive shaped jelly moulds. They claim the emit some sort of magnetic energy that banishes damp. Even the so called inventor has been declareed bankrupt, and all those involved in the scam are Scientologists. Numerous court cases all over Europe have proven this is a scam.

The pages here show some of the bullshit they are peddling - and you are welcome to look through their website at the fraudulent claims made - most of the 'happy client videos' are from other scientologists. The videos of my cellar are faked - I made a video which exposed them - they turned it round to try and show how pleased I was - I'll reporoduce both videos so you can see. Its hilarious., if not extremely serious fraud.

They claim their system is backed and approved by Historic England.  IT IS NOT!!!! They were thrown out of the Listed Property Show after picking a fight with Historic England - who refuse to acknowledge them.

Which brings me to the case of Maldon Town Hall - where they defrauded the Town Council out of a system, by claiming it was endorsed by Historic England. See the page below.
