ORF making waves

A report on ORF television in Vorarlberg about specially shaped waves designed to catch and deflect negative energy from ley lines has provoked a huge reaction.

Dozens of people who have purchased the waves and had them mounted in their homes have since contacted the consumer protection office in Vorarlberg to ask about getting a refund after failing to note any impact on their health.

The report showed how door-to-door salesmen were selling the waves and suggested there was no real effectiveness in having them mounted.

But the report also prompted an angry protest from workers at the companies producing the devices such as staff at the Salzburg based firm of Goldberg who complained about one-sided reporting, which may now threaten their jobs following the report.

The company has so far sold 8,400 sets of waves and has a turnover of around 10 million Euros.
