Gullible Kenyans (and other folks around the globe) were told you that after you buy the so called BioDisc for a ‘mere’ Shs 40,000, you were supposed to be in this big company business. A pyramid style marketing where you have to find people to buy the product in order to earn commission from it. The company is named Quest.net. An internationally known company.
The thing is, is it all just another fraudulent scam. Although I have personally tested the product, and yes it does make salt less saltier and orange juice less bitter when put on top of the disc for a few moments and stirred anti-clockwise.
Those people who try to dupe you into buying it say loads of stuff; Biotech and Nanotech made it, from loads of different minerals. More efficient than Japan’s hot spring. Approved in Japan, Germany and Singapore. PROGNOS certificate is awarded to every single piece etc etc.
The chairman if the company, Dato’ Vijay Eswaran (Malaysian) is wanted by interpol for a fraud case involving over 90 million USD.
Contacting Schott AG the apparent manufacturer reveals that there is no patent or copywrite on the Biodisc anywhere on this planet, and therefore no confidentiality agreement is possible.
The reply was simple enough …it was manufactured by Schott (they could not tell me if it still is because it is not a regular production item and IS ONLY MADE ON RECEIPT OF AN ORDER, WITH PAYMENT). The Disc is manufactured in the Architectural Division, it has no relationship to suggestions by some that it is made from the same materials as the space-shuttle windscreen (more rubbish from idiots). Besides the physical dimensions, asthetic design and finish, there is ONLY ONE TECHNICAL ORDER ON THE MANUFACTURING INSTRUCTION, THAT THE GLASS IS NON-REFLECTIVE.
It is not even a special order request as Schott have this glass listed as a standard PRODUCT with its own order number. When purchasing the disc from Schott, you give the quantity required, the design brief (or CADCAM files) and select the glass type from their catalogue.
The import document to countries that then receive this order states ‘ ARCHITECTURAL GLASS MANUFACTURED IN GERMANY.
The reason glass is selected and not some other material is because there are no special fees or delays in shipping like there would be for porcelain (customs need to XRay) metal(production cost is much higer than glass), wood is again more expensive to manufacture and wood also has special requirement in customs that might cause additional expenses for the importer. Also Wood cannot be referred to as ‘NANO ENGINEERED’ AND YOU CANNOT SUGGEST AS EASILY THAT IT HAS 13 ‘MAGICAL’ EARTH ELEMENTS.
