What is a Teslar scam?

When I first started hearing about Teslar scams, I didn’t know they were talking about Philip Stein watches.  To be honest, I thought Teslar was some type of fabric, like mylar or nylon.  It wasn’t until I went out and bought a new Philip Stein watch that I started learning about Teslar technology.  Then a friend of mine looked at me incredulously and said, “ I can’t believe you, of all people, fell for that Teslar scam.”

Of course, I told him he didn’t know what he was talking about, and that my new Philip Stein watch was the smartest purchase I had made in years.  After all, how many people wear a watch that protects them from stress-causing electromagnetic fields (EMFs), helps them to sleep more soundly, and improves their concentration on the job?

I first learned about Philip Stein watches when I was working as a production assistant on the Oprah Winfrey show.  Her popular list of “Favorite Things” always gets a lot of media attention, and I was fascinated to learn the story of how Philip Stein incorporated frequency technology into every one of his luxury timepieces.  Then I heard that media mogul Rupert Murdoch had bought one, so I decided to check them out.

It wasn’t until this year that I finally went out and bought one, and I noticed the health benefits immediately.  So, you can imagine, I was rather insulted when my buddy accused me of being fooled by a Teslar scam. 

Turns out, after doing some research on how this rumor got started, I made contact with a few of Philip Stein’s authorized retailers.  It was then that I learned how the scam got started.  Apparently, a few of those “scammer” web sites (you know, the ones who load up your inbox with spam emails) based their review of Philip Stein watches on an inexpensive imposter.  No wonder it didn’t work! 

In the end, it was a great lesson for me.  Not only did it make me realize that I hadn’t been scammed; I was also reminded of how important it is to thoroughly research any rumors you hear on the Internet.
