Communication from Industrial Heat Warning about Fraudulent Solicitations

The following message was posted on the Journal of Nuclear Physics by Andrea Rossi today

To the Readers:
I report a communication released today from Industrial Heat:

“Recently we become aware of information being distributed offering ownership,shares or prepurchase agreements for Energy Catalyzers (E-Cat) with request of money in the following Territories: North America, Central America, South America, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Emirates. As the lawful holders of the E-Cat rights and Intellectual Property in the above specified Territories, we want to clearly state that no such agreements are being offered to the public. If you receive a solicitation, we strongly encourage the public not to respond, provide personal information, or commit any resources.

John T.Vaughn, Vice President
Industrial Heat”

Yesterday Andrea Rossi made a similar statement on the JONP and signed it “Dr Andrea Rossi, Leonardo Corp (CEO).” It’s interesting that JT Vaughn would take the unusual step of having Rossi post a message from himself in addition. This is actually the first official communication from Industrial Heat since the press release announcing the acquisition of the E-Cat in January of this year, and shows that they are still actively involved; Vaughn here reiterates that Industrial Heat is the legal owner of the rights to the E-Cat.

    It is good that they put this out occasionally if only to silence those who like to say they are a scam without having any other basis than their disbelief in the the technology.

      It won’t deter the skeptopaths in the least.

      • Ophelia Rump

        It will make obvious the lie, and in doing so the psychopathology of the liar.

    Good to know Mr Vaughn is alive and not, one presumes, being held bound and blindfold in a cellar at Leonardo Corp HQ.

    We could do with a lot more communication from him and others at IH.

    Time for them to set up a proper website with an about, technology, media and all the other tabs in place.

    Frank, you’re doing a terrific job updating us on the freshet of news springing from the TIP study. Good work! It’s absolutely great to see the world waking up to pay attention,

    And it’s just as poorly written.

    Why is all this is happening can have a reason;

    A single page website with above message will completely stop anyone from such activities.
    When a person wants to buy something worth a million, he will at least do a search on the net and find that official page. He may not find the Rossi’s message, it will be buried below hundreds of messages.

    I still have no clue what stops Vaughn etc to set up a web page. It should take few minutes and a few dollars. With millionaires on board and very educated people there, it can only be intentional that they do not want a website. Whatever is the reason, it is causing a lot of confusion and such illegal activities.

    • I just asked Rossi on JoNP about why IH has not a simple website which handles such hot topics.
      Currently it’s in moderation state. I hope he will answer or/and relay the idea.

      • Okay, seems it was deletet now. Too bad.

        • Andreas Moraitis

          The posts which are in moderation disappear automatically after a while. Just be patient.

          He generally won’t respond to questions about matters outside of his areas of responsibility. My guess about IH’s lack of a web site is they don’t want to have a public face out there until they are ready to market to the public. I guess they consider their January press release as all they need to communicate to the public right now — it is found at their web domain at http://www.industrialheat.co

          Today’s comment by JT Vaughn on the JONP is probably just to clarify that they own the E-Cat, not Rossi. Rossi had made a warning about the fraudulant solicitations, and signed it as CEO of Leonardo Corp. That could cause confusion about who actually owns the E-Cat.

    • Andreas Moraitis

      I would not exclude the possibility that IH are bound by contract to a big partner, as has been suspected many times. Maybe they are not free in their decisions about what and how they communicate.

        Very probably Pentagram entity is involved

    • – Very well put!

      If Industrial Heat really does want to attract serious investment in R&D, followed by serious orders, they simply MUST put up their own, professional website, ASAP! They should also employ a professional PR person to supervise that site. That person would certainly not be Andrea Rossi. He/she would speak and write perfect English for a start and would become the sole public portal for all things IH and E-Cat. All that is standard for all corporations of any size at all and certainly for those who want to present a professional face to the world in general and the venture capital world in particular.

      That means the PR person would employ standard techniques like the “friendly interview”, e.g. “Chief Scientist Andrea Rossi and his dedicated team of scientists, engineers and technicians were very encouraged by the latest report and have gone up yet another gear in their quest to bring the E-Cat to the world in time to make a difference….”. You get the idea.

      Even if IH isn’t actually ready to officially launch the E-Cat, they should obey the golden rule of PR and keep the public and potential investors constantly up-to-date with what the problems and delays are – NOT rely on the likes of us bloggers to constantly second guess the whole thing. The Kremlin – like approach they are still taking just won’t do! It presents an open goal to the LENR skeptics, who have already found the back of net far too many times! (I hope you Americans finally know enough about soccer to “get” that).

      Again, let me be clear. I am among the many who want Rossi and all the other “LENR Martyrs” to succeed but they really must start doing themselves a favor!

    More puzzles!

    I have followed this saga for some time and certainly would consider myself a hopeful “believer”.

    However, events such as this, I cannot understand.

    The title is “Communication from Industrial Heat Warning about Fraudulent Solicitations”, but it is not really from Industrial Heat. It was a message, relayed by Rossi on his blog. I did a quick search and could find no related information on such a communication. (I do not believe that IH even has a basic website that I could find)

    Being in business myself, I would not think that a professional, well funded organization would conduct communications such as this. They do not communicate anything else about the Ecat, their intentions or plans, status, etc. etc. nor do they have to or really need to. But then this message would be out of context with their current mode of operendi…. no messages. Do they think that Rossi’s blog is really sufficient to prevent people from getting scammed?

    This truly is like some odd, crazy movie! It is enjoyable to watch and I sure hope it turns out with the happy ending, but these types of things make me scratch my head for sure! It has some type of surreal weirdness about it.

      Yup that is a bit strange??

      I would think the post on JONP would get the information to most people who would even consider investing. Only someone who has been following this saga would likely even consider investing in one of the scams. Anyone else that hasn’t been following along wouldn’t likely give it a second thought.

    An excellent case for Mr. Kirvit and his private eye services! Many ardent skeptics see themselves as investment scam bounty hunters. Here is a juicy bone to chew on. It will be fascinating to see if even a single MY-caliber skeptic follows their arrow and captures these wascilly rascals that are sabotaging the LENR development process.

    • US_Citizen71

      I don’t know, personally I would half expect the bottom of these websites to read ‘copyright 2014 yugo-kirvit industries all rights reserved’ ; )

    Isn’t it odd that they don’t put such things on a website of their own?

    As if that ain’t odd enough, today I finally got around to checking the Prometeon site’s news page, to see how it talks about the new report, but it’s under maintanance. Right now! When you’d expect it to be boasting of the news…

    • Mats Hilmersson

      If their claims are true, IH and their licensees need to have an absolute minimum profile until their patents are granted.
