Trading Standards officers have taken notice of the device that claims to protect people against the dangers of 5G via the use of quantum technology. They are looking for ways to completely stop the sales of these products.
Cyber-security experts said that the $339 5GBioShiled is nothing but an ordinary USB drive that is being used to misguide people.
“We consider it to be a scam,” Stephen Knight, operations director for London Trading Standards told the BBC.
According to reports, his team is working with the City of London Police’s Action Fraud squad. They are seeking a court order to curb the sales of this device. “People who are vulnerable need protection from this kind of unscrupulous trading,” he added.
BBC reported that the authorities received complaints about this technology and so it was taken under examination. The vendor Boiled Distribution said that the device was made after “research” but after the accusations, it has not commented on the matter.
