The AutoZap site has Arthur Doerksen greeting visitors
with a smile while declaring "I don't fear "the C word"
any more because I've been through it twice
and I finally learned the "secret".
Today, I use my AutoZap 5 Hulda Clark Zapper every day
to remain healthy and cancer free."
But Arthur passed away from cancer in February 2016.
His son now manages the Auto-Zap site
-- without mentioning
his father's passing.

Here's what the AutoZap site has to say.

Our phone is currently unavailable. We're working to fix it. In the meantime please send an email instead
for fastest response.

I received this email from Jeff S. on Oct. 10, 2017.

I read what you wrote about Arthur and you are right. I bought his zapper and this magnetic food thing and neither did anything at all. He promised a refund if they didn't work but would never reply to me when I asked several times. I even used some of my electronic equipment I have here and those things were not putting out anything at all.

I received this email from John S. on Oct 28, 2017.

I emailed the company [AutoZap] that is selling Dr. Clark's devices. As of yet, I haven't had a response. It's been a week.
I had to email because their phones don't work.
So ... no phones and they don't return email ...
That doesn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling.


The Ultimate Zapper has received the endorsement of other zapper makers. Terminator's Don Croft said The Ultimate Zapper "is a good zapper" and ParaZapper's David Etheredge said "it may be the best single frequency zapper".

The Ultimate Zapper is certainly the world's most popular zapper. It is also (not coincidently) the only zapper whose name is coveted by other makers. The consequences are often humorous. This is an informative and entertaining look at Longevity Zapper, Terminator, Mini Silver Terminator, Dr. Clark Research Association, Auto-Zap and ParaZapper ... and more.

Ken, I trust you ....

John G.: ... because you back up everything you say ... You spend a lot of time showing simple but important common sense scientific reasons why you have the superior product ... using good hard facts presented sensibly ... not a propaganda factory like many of your competitors. May 18, 2014

Longevity Zapper

David Wolfe is a "health guru" known for his public appearances. He is proud of his background. He tells us both his parents are medical doctors. Unfortunately, that's not true. There is no record of David Wolfe's mother being a medical doctor. His father was a DO (doctor of osteopathy) -- not a medical doctor. His license was revoked in 2002 -- after murdering his second wife.

David Wolfe's father, Gerald L. Wolfe, pleaded guilty in San Diego Superior Court to voluntary manslaughter in the fatal shooting of his wife, Maureen Wolfe, 41, on Nov. 30, 1998. He shot her twice in the head -- in front of her two children. At the time, he was being held in County Jail in lieu of $3 million bail. He was earlier found guilty of medical insurance fraud. This is the lamentable truth about the family aura with which David Wolfe shrouds himself.

What about David Wolfe's own credentials? Regarding his claim of having attended Oxford University, this response comes directly from the Information Compliance Unit of The University of Oxford: "The Degree Referrals Office has been unable to find any record of David Wolfe having undertaken a degree course at the University of Oxford."

But I am sure David Wolfe is being truthful in this video when he says "chocolate lines up planetarily with the sun" and "mushroom spores ... get sling-shottted right off the center of the sun and eventually right across the galaxy". I am embarassed to admit I didn't know as much as I thought about chocolate and mushrooms.

Magic mushrooms

Electronics 101 with David Wolfe

Does David Wolfe know more about zappers than he does about chocolate and mushrooms? Actually, he fudges it with a live audience using made-up electronic terms that show he knows zip-dee-do. He didn't create his zapper. He hired a technician who came up with a very weak Terminator clone -- "designed to help the immune system" -- but with no mention of immune system testing and no proof for his claim. There is none.

Ironically, David Wolfe never mentions that the copper coins on his zapper box produce copper toxicity and that this actually suppresses the immune system. But he does warn about burns from the coins -- in the fine print where you will need a magnifying glass to be able to read it.


David Wolfe needs to take Electronics 101. In his videos he says Longevity Zapper's wave "is the tightest square wave ever produced by any zapper ever." There is no such thing as a tight wave. Then he declares "The square wave here is too tight. The electronics are too tight". There is no such thing as tight electronics. He talks about an "up-down wave". There is no such thing. He says the wave turns "on and off". It does no such thing. He says his zapper is "computer-controlled". It has no computer.

David Wolfe says his zapper has a "positive charge". It has a negative charge. He talks about a "dispersed" battery. Batteries do not disperse. They discharge. His audience response shows they have no idea what hit them. Not to worry. David Wolfe knows how to entertain a crowd even when he gets it all wrong. Who needs the facts when you get the laughs -- and the paycheck? Watch him Fudging It and Winging It. But, in the end, David Wolfe does not have much confidence in his zapper. He offers no trial period and only a 30-day limited warranty -- with lots of fine print. The Ultimate Zapper offers a 3-month trial period and an unlimited lifetime warranty.

Authentic old-fashioned fudge

Living to 150

David Wolfe sells the hope of longevity, dangling the notion of living to 150 to rapt audiences. At 47 he's a self-styled longevity expert -- with 103 years to go. Personally, I don't look to health food gurus for advise on longevity -- especially those with a long list of products to sell that they claim will get us there.

When I want to find out about longevity I look in a more logical place. I look to old folks for lessons on longevity. In fact, I learned a lot about longevity from my mother who passed away just shy of 98. But however long we live, in the end we will be judged by how we lived our life, not how many years we spent here. In fact, some of the best people did not live to be old. So, David Wolfe may have his longevity plan. But God has His own plan that may supercede David Wolfe's plan -- surprise, surprise.

I think he's going for the record


Terminator and the 2 Terminator clones, Longevity Zapper and Mini Silver Terminator, say to wear them round the clock. But they don't say why. The reason is they are weak zappers, as Comparison Charts show. Since the wave follows a short path from one coin to the other it has a weak effect through the rest of the body -- weakening further as the battery discharges.

But the coins cause burns at the point of contact with the skin, precisely because they are close together. In fact, both Terminator and Longevity warn about burns -- in the fine print. They say keep moving their zappers around to avoid getting burnt. Since that's not possible at night many people wake up with serious burns.

"This picture [of a Terminator burn -- posted to an Internet forum]
was taken almost two years ago and the scars have now faded but I think
they will stay somewhat permanently cause I can still easily see them."

From the same forum where this burn was reported: "The problem with any zapper that uses attached pennies or copper disks as electrodes is that it tends to burn holes in the users skin, causing permanent scars. Lena, myself and my mother (she fell asleep on it) all have had holes burned into our skin and consequently scars from the Terminator."

Don Croft claims that Terminator helps "rid the body of heavy metals". He presents no proof for the claim -- which is not only false but also ironic since Terminator's uncovered copper coins actually cause copper toxicity which actually suppresses the immune system. Same for Terminator clones Longevity Zapper and Mini Silver Terminator. With The Ultimate Zapper burn risk and toxicity are banished because handholds and footpads are always covered. If you covered Terminator's coins the box would also be covered which would cause moisture to leak inside. Poof -- zapper gone.

Zappers are not detoxifiers (chelators) that remove metals from the body. They kill pathogens. The Ultimate Zapper's Electroporation can enhance chelation. But it is not a chelator, per se. See My Recovery Protocol for details.

Mini Silver Terminator

Peter Boudreau of Educate-Yourself markets a zapper called Mini Silver Terminator -- a Terminator clone -- using the alias of the Canadian poet Ken Adachi. He accepts payment via his tax avoidance scheme. He is a very educational fellow -- who uses the alias Ken Adachi as a paid disinformer. He is known as a liar-for-hire who has slandered many sites, including mine. He shouts in CAPITALS to get attention. He calls me "pathological". I am lucky that he provided this diagnosis free of charge.

Anti-semitism and lies

I received this email -- asking for help.

Hello, This man, this "Ken Adachi," has, in retaliation, put up a libelous page about me, because I called him out on his antisemitism and his lies in a private email. The page has all of my contact information and a reading list supposedly recommended by me of antisemitic reading material. I have repeatedly asked him to remove it. To date, he has only removed the photos, only because I complained to his web host, Lunar Pages. If you can suggest a way I might be able to get him to remove this libelous page, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much. Solange S., Aug 28, 2015

Dr. Clark Research Association

David Amrein of Dr. Clark Research Association threated to "get to" me after I revealed he has no link with Dr. Hulda Clark and is the sole owner of his "association" that is not an association. He got so mad he even tried to intimidate my Internet service provider.

Who says I'm not an association?

David Amrein's does not want people to know his "association" is actually a company owned solely by him. And he doesn't want people to know he uses Dr. Clark's name without her consent. He calls his shop "Dr. Clark's Shop". There's only one problem. Dr. Clark passed away in 2009. She never had a shop. In fact, she never sold zappers. Here is what she stated on her site: "There are other websites and companies using my name ... or selling products that claim to be approved by me ... I am not affiliated with, and have no control over, any other website or company ... no other website speaks for me ... I do not endorse any manufacturer ... ".

And David Amrein also does not want people to know his so-called Hulda Clark zappers are not zappers. They are actually frequency generators. They require complicated & expensive smart keys and program drivers to work. I explain zappers vs. frequency generators on my FAQ Page #5.

David Amrein wears a medical gown on his site (looks good) and he boasts about his high IQ. Congratulations. Very impressive. But I feel honesty is more important. He agreed to a Federal court judgment related to false medical claims and fraudulent advertising -- after which he fled the U.S. to live in Switzerland.


The AutoZap site has Arthur Doerksen greeting visitors
with a smile while declaring "I don't fear "the C word"
any more because I've been through it twice
and I finally learned the "secret".
Today, I use my AutoZap 5 Hulda Clark Zapper every day
to remain healthy and cancer free."
But Arthur passed away from cancer in February 2016.
His son now manages the Auto-Zap site
-- without mentioning
his father's passing.

The following paragraphs were written
before Arthur's death

Redirecting attention

Arthur Doerksen of AutoZap tried to take the name of The Ultimate Zapper. When this did not work out he came up with a good idea to get people to visit his site. I own theultimatezapper.com. So he bought ultimatezapper.com -- a redirect link he uses to fool people into visiting his site when they search for The Ultimate Zapper. Very clever -- and helpful.

Never mind. Arthur Doersken is a pleasant fellow. He smiles and blesses everyone. So, who could object? But when you look closely you will see that things simply don't add up with his "wellness system".

Waking up the immune system?

Comparison Charts prove AutoZap is weak. But Arthur claims a "lifetime of wellness in 5 minutes". His proof? Dr. Clark's theory of "waking up your immune system". But she offered no proof. There is no CD4/CD8 testing of Killer T-cells/Suppressor cells before and after zapping -- the definitive immunity test. We are asked to trust Arthur and have faith in Hulda Clark.

Killer T-cells haven't heard of AutoZap's
"Lifetime of Wellness -- in 5 minutes"

Arthur follows Dr. Clark's dictums. He now quotes her immune system theory. He used to quote her old theory about resonance. When she gave up on resonance so did he. But resonance is how pathogens are destroyed, with decades of scientific proof dating to Dr. Royal Rife in the 1930s. Dr. Rife was the great genius of electro-medicine.

Neutralizing toxins?

Arthur says Dr. Clark "found you can neutralize benzene and other toxins magnetically" with the zappicator. A bold claim. What does "neutralizing" toxins mean? And how did Dr. Clark "find" this? She doesn't say. Neither does Arthur. There is no proof at all from Dr. Clark or Arthur -- or anywhere else -- for this claim. The only thing Arthur offers is a quote from Dr. Clark.

A serious claim -- with no proof

Dr. Clark's research was flawed, as her own case shows. After making videos showing "How to Use Dr. Clark's Syncrometer to Cure Cancer", and after writing The Cure for All Advanced Cancers, Dr. Clark died of cancer in 2009. Arthur covered up the cause of her death -- until he could no longer attribute it to a "spinal cord injury". He says Dr. Clark "passed the torch" to him. I wonder what torch he means.

When you begin to understand all this you may begin to wonder what the AutoZap "wellness system" actually means. There is no scientific proof that a simple magnetic field affects toxins. And his zappicator produces a simple magnetic field, not a pulsed magnetic field or oscillating magnetic field where there is supportive research for various issues -- but none at all for neutralizing toxins.

I imagine Arthur would provide proof if he had it. But he doesn't. He says you need to trust Dr. Clark -- and buy his zapper and his zappicator. By the way, Arthur does not accept zappicator returns. His excuse is that he calls his zappicator a "personal use product". Very convenient.

I receive lots of email from AutoZap customers about no results -- never mind "a lifetime of wellness" in 5 minutes. Why not give Arthur a call and ask him to explain things?

Dear Ken,

I had a very negative experience with [Arthur Doerksen over the phone regarding] your long article about his lies. He cannot tell me anything about the super-zappercator that he is trying to peddle and says uses magnetism and also ambiguously infers also uses compression pulses ... the device that he claims there is no free trial period on, saying that it is a personal use item.

I am trying to make an informed choice as to what brand zapper (and xtras) to spend my hard earned cash on yet he has been so dismissively arrogant towards me that I no longer want to have anything more to do with him [or his company] ... He does not like my questions about specifics, particularly of this nature, and has insulted my intelligence several times ... [Arthur] seems to me to be far too dull, disinterested and unintelligent to be an engineer ...

Best regards,
from Ian M.

The adapter scare

The Ultimate Zapper was the first zapper in the world to feature an AC adapter. See #18 on my FAQ Page. Other zapper makers followed my lead. The fact is that there has never been a problem with any adapter from any zapper maker. AC adapters produce safe DC voltage, like all government-approved adapters. Arthur has been trying to scare people for nearly 20 years -- scare them into buying his battery zapper. At the same time, he has tried to rename his AutoZap the "Ultimate Zapper" and take my site's name for is own. He even has a re-direct link to try to fool people into visiting his site when they are looking for mine. Very clever -- and very useful.

Never mind. Arthur's blessings smooth all the wrinkles. I am also a believer but I am not as public about my faith as Arthur is. More on Arthur and his AutoZap here.

Welcome to ParaZapperland
David Etheredge's World of
Smoke & Mirrors


David Etheredge stands out as the archetypal jealous competitor. He is obsessed with The Ultimate Zapper. While constantly talking it down he tried to clone it and even took its name for his zapper -- all the while trying to distract from its amazing success shown by 1000 unsolicited testimonials, including actress Karen Allen's Lyme testimonials.


On the offensive (once again) David Etheredge recently outdid himself. Proving he is the hands-down winner of the International Pinocchio Prize he boldly declared "Ken Presner is constantly claiming that every other zapper seller is lying about him and his zapper". We can add this declaration to his long and illustrious Pinocchio List.

There are hundreds of zapper makers. I talk about exactly 2 makers besides him who lie about me and my work. After calling me a "hypster of the first magnitude" David Etheredge lamented that I "call names". If you look closely, I merely state the truth -- that David Etheredge is an incorrigible liar and a pathetic fraud -- as the facts clearly show (below).

David Etheredge calls me "a shade tree mechanic"
I am now open for business

Posted by UserX on the CureZone forum right here

Parazapper, anyone truly concerned about the health of people would not engage in taking shots at others in order to sell a product. Attempting to always belittle every other zapper that is even brought up in discussion is a sad statement ... You always say that the Parazapper is not the average zapper and I was interested to find out what made it better and I have seen absolutely nothing in the specs. that make it anything more than the average zapper.

Counting the days

The Ultimate Zapper is the #1 zapper with the best "Satisfaction Package" -- a 3-month trial + unlimited lifetime warranty. Comparison Charts prove ParaZappers are weak. So, David Etheredge has an appropriate policy: a limited warranty and a punitive trial he says is meant to scare people. I imagine a 60% return penalty after 14 days accomplishes that effectively. He says he examines postmarks and counts days. From his site: "... returned units MUST be postmarked by the 11th day or there may be additional charges of ... 60% for those that exceed 14 days".

Can you make out that postmark?

It's no surprise David Etheredge has received tepid response to his zappers over the years. He has developed a bold idea to face the challenge. Go after the #1 zapper -- The Ultimate Zapper -- whatever it takes. The result is an amazing artifice of smoke and mirrors. Let's take a look.

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
Exodus 20:16

Smoke & Mirrors #1
"The Ultimate Zapper is just an ultimate zapper.
I'll try to clone it and take the name for my own."

David Etheredge has been obsessed with The Ultimate Zapper for years. He began calling it his ultimate zapper (in lower case) -- meaning The Ultimate Zapper from Ken Presner. He was implying that anyone can have an ultimate zapper -- even him. So, to prove it, he tried to clone The Ultimate Zapper. He did not succeed but decided to name his clone after The Ultimate Zapper -- calling it the UZ (in upper case). Very original.

Smoke & Mirrors #2
"It's a shoddy machine but it gets great testimonials.
I'll just tell everyone he made them up."

David Etheredge was surely troubled by the paradox of declaring, on the one hand, that The Ultimate Zapper is a "shoddy and crude zapper" while, on the other hand, declaring it "may be the best single frequency zapper" -- with the further complication that there are obviously thousands of very satisfied users as witnessed by 1000 unsolicited testimonials vs. a mere handful of testimonials for his zappers.

So, undoubtedly after doing a lot of soul searching, he found the perfect solution to "The Testimonial Problem". He bravely declared that I made up the Testimonial Archive. After perpetrating that lie he further denigrated The Ultimate Zapper by calling it a "cheaply made hobby zapper" that uses inferior hard wiring (that is actually superior) instead of neat, green printed circuit boards.

This is our newest model -- the Rinky Dink RD1

Why would David Etheredge try to copy and take the name of a zapper he denounces and whose testimonials he is willing to go so far as to lie about? This makes no sense -- unless The Ultimate Zapper is for real. Which it is, of course. In which case, trying to clone it, take its name and denounce its testimonials makes perfect sense in David Etheredge's distorted world.

Smoke & Mirrors #3
"It's a cheaply made hobby zapper"

David Etheredge says The Ultimate Zapper's point-to-point hard wiring is inferior and that it defines "a cheaply made hobby zapper". PCBs (printed circuit boards) look neat and pretty. Point-to-point hard wiring does not look neat and pretty. But the latter is known by experts to be more reliable and produce a superior signal.

Hard wiring is one of the secrets of The Ultimate Zapper's success -- one of its 12 True Feaetures. Here is the truth about The Ultimate Zapper's build quality. In fact, many high end audio companies use hard wiring exclusively. Hard wiring is how electronics were made before PCBs were invented. Read about the unreliability of printed circuit boards and PCB failures on WikiPedia and this blog.

This is your hobby zapper?

Have a look here at the inside of some "cheaply made" multi-thousand dollar high end audio components with the point-to-point wiring that David Etheredge says is inferior. By the way, he forgot to mention PCBs offer something special for zapper makers like him. They are cheap.

In fact, it costs much more to make The Ultimate Zapper than any zapper with a circuit board. It takes a lot more time to hand solder zappers with point-to-point wiring. The result is a failure rate of zero% and 1000s of happy customers -- and 1 competitor trying to pull the strings of those not familiar with electronics. To try to pull the wool over people's eyes, David Etheredge counts his zapper's circuits to impress people -- an attempt to distract from the fact that it is results, not circuits, that count.

Smoke & Mirrors #4
Chocolate chips?

The Ultimate Zapper's
micro-processor IC (integrated circuit)

David Etheredge declares The Ultimate Zapper is "not micro-processor based". He throws the truth about The Ultimate Zapper out the window by once again trying to mislead people who are not into electronics.

Have a look at the photo, above. What is this IC chip (integrated circuit) doing inside my zapper? If it's not a micro-processor chip then there's only one possibility. It's a chocolate chip. Which makes The Ultimate Zapper the world's first edible zapper.

Smoke & Mirrors #5
"My zapper's got that useless add-on too"

Zapper makers agree that zappers must have a square wave. But square on an oscilloscope does not mean square when the zapper is connected to the body. An unstabilized square wave becomes round on body contact. This creates diminished effectiveness. It is the squareness of the wave that makes the difference. Makers avoid talking about the stabilized wave -- except for David Etheredge who copied The Ultimate Zapper's stabilized wave.

    The Ultimate Zapper                        Unstabilized Zappers

David Etheredge has not succeeded in duplicating my zapper but he has been trying hard. When he copied my stabilized wave, his pretzel logic and ambivalence took over. He was actually saying "I've got that feature, too. But it's just a useless add-on demanded by my customers." Now, who believes he added a useless feature to his zapper for "no good reason" other than his customers were demanding it? The truth is he does not want people to believe he added a stabilized wave to his zapper

because The Ultimate Zapper is more effective thanks to it. Because that would make my zapper look good -- and that's a no-no. So, with calculated ambivalence he denied the effectiveness of the stabilized wave while adding it to his zapper. He "found" a stabilized wave isn't effective but adopted it anyway. How did he "find" this out? He has refused to say -- because he obvously cannot refute the science.

Smoke & Mirrors #6
Dippy waves -- dippy facts

David Etheredge likes to quote Dr. Clark. He states: "this [The Ultimate] zapper does NOT meet Dr. Clark's specification for positive offset ... take it to an electronics shop and have them check it under human load with an oscilloscope. It dips very negative ... " He says Dr. Clark states the negative dip "sustains pathogen life". Sounds serious.

According to David Etheredge, The Ultimate Zapper's wave doesn't kill parasites at all. It makes them grow. The only problem is that 1000 testimonials on this site clearly contradict his assertion that the dippy wave makes results impossible. It is obvious that the dip has no negative effect whatsoever on the effectiveness of The Ultimate Zapper. What's his proof? David Etheredge quotes Dr. Clark as proof. But Dr. Clark offered no proof of her own. And he offers no proof of his own. The fact is that Dr. Clark was wrong about many things. She died in 2009 from cancer -- after writing The Cure for All Cancers.


David Etheredge takes this deception one step further. He shows an oscilloscope photo on his site with the wave dipping, to try to sway opinion -- inferring that this is The Ultimate Zapper's wave. But is this really The Ultimate Zapper wave on the oscilloscope? No, it's not. He actually states in the text that this is ParaZapper's own wave! And he conveniently forgets to mention that every zapper wave has a spike -- and a dip.

David Etheredge also forgets to mention that his zapper's voltage drops way below 9 volts under load (with body contact) and continues to drop to zero as the battery discharges, unlike the constant high voltage of The Ultimate Zapper. David Etheredge likes to quote Dr. Hulda Clark. He forgot to mention she said at least 9 volts is key to optimum results. This is one thing that Dr. Clark got right.

Ironically, David Etheredge's attempt to impugn The Ultimate Zapper with the wave dip story ends with him impugning his own zapper by throwing the truth about waves and voltage out the window. This is not the first time his pretzel logic has twisted itself into a shape that circles back on him.

Smoke & Mirrors #7
Stick with your old model

Makers of "Hulda Clark zappers" use her name without her consent to sell their zappers. The Ultimate Zapper has never been marketed as a Hulda Clark Zapper. Which has not prevented David Etheredge from trying to belittle it -- by saying what? That it is not a Hulda Clark zapper! He says it is not a Hulda Clark zapper because it has extra features -- and that you have to stick with the old "Hulda Clark specifications" to be called a Hulda Clark zapper. That's like sticking with an old TV with poor picture quality because people selling old TV sets say flat screens are no good.

We should stick with the old model

Ironically, sticking with "Hulda Clark specifications" is a guarantee of a weak zapper since her specifications were weak: battery operation, high frequency, 50% Duty Cycle. Many makers are tempted to adopt new features. When they do, they opportunistically keep the name "Hulda Clark zapper" for marketing purposes although they are actually not Hulda Clark zappers anymore, according to Dr Clark's old rules that they conveniently adopt for others to follow.

Ironically, although David Etheredge calls ParaZapper a Hulda Clark zapper, it violates her one frequency at 25,000 Hz. rule. So, his ParaZapper is not a Hulda Clark zapper. Although he does not judge his own zapper by the rules he sets for others he still uses Dr. Clark's name for his zappers.

Smoke & Mirrors #8
"Electroporation? -- that's impossible"

David Etheredge says The Ultimate Zapper cannot produce Electroporation since "the science" says it's impossible. He refuses to acknowledge the Electroporation testimonials or take the Electroporation Challenge. If he did he would quickly change his mind. The Ultimate Zapper has proved "the science" very wrong. But, he will never admit this, of course because "the science" is never wrong -- and The Ultimate Zapper is never right.

Smoke & Mirrors #9
David Etheredge loves to quote CureZone

David Etheredge hopes that publishing negative things about The Ultimate Zapper will make him look good. He was glad to highlight a "report" on CureZone where an Ultimate Zapper customer claimed (this was over 10 years ago) that he never received his zapper or a refund that he demanded.

Here are the facts. The customer signed for his zapper. We have proof of deliver. He was lying on CureZone as part of a ploy to steal his zapper. He successfully stole his Ultimate Zapper -- and also received a full refund. Though this happened years ago David Etheredge has never acknowledged the truth -- and never removed this "report" from his site.

Never mind the truth
Let's talk about something important

Smoke & Mirrors #10
Criminal support -- from a lover of the 1st Amendment

David Etheredge has links on his site leading to fraudulent "reports" about The Ultimate Zapper published on "complaint sites" that are actually run by known criminals. Their business is defamation and extortion. Here's how they work. They state they don't verify the truth of anything they print. They invite fraudulent "reports", copy from other sites and even write their own "reports". They make huge profits from pay-per-click ad revenue -- and from extorting money from the victims they create.


RipOff Report is owned by "consumer advocate" Ed Magedson. He is a convicted felon with a long criminal record. His agent invited me to pay $50,000 to remove a "report" from their site. David Etheredge put links to this "report" in his smear campaign where he morphed this "report" into "reports". And he still keeps these links on his site even after I proved fraud. Very useful.

Here are mug shots of Ed Magedson
-- the felon from RipOff Report who David Etheredge loves to quote

Dead Links

After assuring everyone that these extortionists are "reliable sources", David Etheredge waited to the end of his smear before casually mentioning that some of the links on his site were actually dead. No problem. For him links are links. Dead or alive. However, these "reliable" sites never remove "reports". So what really happened here?


Did you hear about the latest "report"?

The links were dead because of a fraud so obvious a 3-year-old could see it. The site owner who originally posted these fraudulant "reports" to his 2 sites removed them when I proved fraud. But they still remained on "untouchable sites" like RipOff Report that picked them up and copied them. David Etheredge assures us that the "untouchables" are very "reliable sources". They certainly are reliable for his purpose -- defamation. This is not the first criminal link in David Etheredge's history.

ComplaintsBoard was the site that ran the original "report" and was later scavenged by RipOff Report. The former is run out of Latvia, which means it is beyond the long arm of the law. They have a reputation for never removing "reports". But they removed this "report" from both of their sites (their mirror site is Scamfound) when I proved fraud. David Etheredge has never admitted the facts and has never removed a single "report" from his site -- even when the original perpetrators did so!


Ed Magedson of RipOff Report is now (August 2015) on the run -- facing new criminal charges. Here is his criminal record: drug possession, assault and battery, check fraud and default judgment. He says he loves the First Amendment. I'm sure he does. It protects him when he creates reports that lead to lawsuits. This TV report calls him an Internet terrorist. This site calls him a cyber-terrorist. See this expose in the Phoenix New Times. He is Internet mafia in the shakedown business here. Ripoff Report's criminality is exposed on this dedicated blog.

A recent court battle was won against Ripoff by this website dedicated to exposing Ed Magedson's sociopathic business practices including fraud, defamation and extortion. How can Ripoff continue to mock the law? They are enabled by Google that profits from ad revenue generated by Ripoff. And how about David Etheredge in the face of all these facts? He doesn't worry about criminals. He simply tries to figure out how to benefit from their hard work.

Scam Sites

Scamchasers is a scam. Scaminformer is a scam. Scamtracers is a scam. ComplaintsBoard is a scam. Scamfound is its scam mirror site. Merareview is a scam run from India. These scam sites do the dirty work. David Etheredge just quotes them. Read more about him and his friends.

Smoke & Mirrors #11
Criminal support -- from a folk hero

David Etheredge has stated My Recovery Protocol that has helped so many people is too expensive for what it offers -- at $29.95. It includes free follow-up. The fact that he hasn't read it is irrelevant, of course. In 22 years only one person has ever made a negative comment about my book -- David Etheredge.

But he says a book that includes a photo of his zapper is a buy at $99.95 -- written by Kevin Trudeau, a larcenist and convicted felon. David Etheredge characterizes him as a folk hero saving humanity -- with infomercials. He forgot to mention Trudeau spent 2 years in federal prison for credit card fraud. He also forgot to mention the website mounted by those that Trudeau defrauded. Here is smiling Kevin as he leaves a Chicago courthouse after being sentenced by Judge Gettleman -- including a $37 million fine for violating a 2004 court order related to his book. A true folk hero.

David Etheredge goes to the bottom of the barrel for criminal support to try to legitimize his agenda and help him sell his zappers. He has a habit of seeking out people who are penitentiary-grade to help his cause -- people like Ed Magedson and Kevin Trudeau. Does this tell us something important about David Etheredge? I believe it does.

Smoke & Mirrors #12
"He made them up"

I'm sure he made up those testimonials

David Etheredge doesn't want people to read the 1000 Testimonials on my site. They make The Ultimate Zapper look too good. So, he declared they are "hype", that I invented them and everyone should ignore them. The fact is they are cut & pasted from unsolicited customer emails. I simply report what my customers say -- word for word. When you visit the Testimonial Archive you will see that what my customers have to say about The Ultimate Zapper is far more bold than my comments which David Etheredge says make me "a hypster of the first magnitude". In which case, I imagine those submitting testimonials for The Ultimate Zapper should be categorized as hypsters beyond the first magnitude -- including Actress Karen Allen who recovered from Lyme disease with The Ultimate Zapper.

Smoke & Mirrors #13
False credentials

Talking about inventing things ... there is no finer example of David Etheredge's deceptive tactics and gift for disinformation than his credentials fiasco. After publishing false credentials on his site for 10 years -- claiming to be an electrical engineer -- he was caught by surprise when his c.v. was made public. He was forced to admit the truth -- then tripped over his feet to create excuses. He wanted everyone to believe he was an electrical engineer -- and was willing to lie about it. Very ethical.

Smoke & Mirrors #14
Highly skilled

David Etheredge was caught with his trousers down when his false credentials were revealed. What was his reponse? In typical fashion, he tried to distract people, as though talking about computer programming skills & work experience makes it all OK. I am a computer programmer and I am the webmaster of this site. I find it ironic that he tries to use his computer "skills" as a diversion when it is obvious they are extremely poor -- with his website looking like an accident scene.

Smoke & Mirrors #15
Building a reputation-- based on disinformation

David Etheredge has spent years chasing The Ultimate Zapper? Why? It's an obsession with him. Instead of developing a top zapper and focusing on ethical marketing to instill confidence in people he tried to clone my zapper and take its name -- while hoping to benefit from fallout from his misinformation & disinformation campaign. Has his situation improved by using these unethical tactics? No, it has not. Has his strategy worked? No, it has not. So, why does he persist? I imagine he thinks he will eventually succeed with this.

No Smoke or Mirrors #1
The testimonial nightmare

It is not by accident that I overcame two incurable diseases. My recovery happened because the truth prevailed. The Ultimate Zapper's success is also no accident. It happened because the truth about its effectiveness prevailed. This is refected in 1000 testimonials with thousands of satisfied customers in over 60 countries. Their stories come in week after week, year after year -- including miracles -- proving what a superior zapper can do.

David Etheredge's Testimonial Nightmare

The truth of 1000 amazing unsolicited testimonials represents David Etheredge's worst nightmare. Why did he try to clone The Ultimate Zapper while naming his zapper after it? Why does he quote fraudulent "reports" to try to discredit it? Why did he say I made up the testimonials? Why is he obsessed to the point that he even speculates about my sales figures on CureZone!? I believe the answers to these questions are clear.

The maze -- created by David Etheredge

I'm sure the plot's around here somewhere

David Etheredge has his work cut out for him. But he lost the plot. The plot is to be honest or people will see through you. He calls The Ultimate Zapper "their ultimate zapper". It is not surprising that his mockery of the The Ultimate Zapper has backfired on him. What goes around comes around. Since I benefit from his lack of ethics I imagine I should thank him.


Hi Ken,

I was going to buy the ParaZapper. I bought into the fabrications and empty claims conveyed by Mr. Etheredge. I'm really glad I found your site. I felt very confident with the level of authority and experience you presented. Thank you for helping us separate the wheat from the chaff.

... I have always found it interesting that you were always a main target for some of these guys [competitors]. Parazapper in particular. I don't like to call someone names, but I spoke with the man many years ago and in my opinion he is an idiot.

Hi Ken,

Glad I found you. I almost got caught in the ParaZapper trap, but luckily was finally able to see through the BS. I think it was actually the constant bashing of your product that convinced me you must have something good. Can't imagine why anyone would trash talk something so much unless it posed a serious threat to them ...

1. David Etheredge stated that I made up the Testimonial Archive. The 1000 testimonials in The Archive arel 100% genuine -- and unsolicited -- including the miraculous testimonial from actress Karen Allen about her Lyme disease.

2. David Etheredge stated The Ultimate Zapper is made with "hobby parts" -- and has no label. It is actually hand made by expert electronic technicians with top quality professional-grade parts. And it has a nice label.

3. David Etheredge stated that The Ultimate Zapper's stabilized wave is ineffective. He then proceeded to take it for his zapper.

4. David Etheredge stated that The Ultimate Zapper is "outdated" and a "shoddy" zapper -- and then proceeded to take 2 more of its features for his zapper.

5. David Etheredge stated The Ultimate Zapper's wave has "a dip". But all zappers have dips and spikes, including his zapper. In fact, he admits the wave photo on his site with dips and spikes is from his own zapper!

6. David Etheredge stated The Ultimate Zapper is "not microprocessor based". It is actually 100% microprocessor based with its state-of-the-art integrated circuit.

8. David Etheredge stated The Ultimate Zapper's AC adapter is "potentially lethal in some cases". It is actually 100% safe -- and has been for 22 years.

10. David Etheredge keeps links to fraudulent "reports" about The Ultimate Zapper on his site even after fraud has been proved.

11. David Etheredge stated that I say "every other zapper maker" is lying about my zapper. The truth is this: out of hundreds of zapper makers I have stated that only 3 lie about The Ultimate Zapper -- including David Etheredge.

12. David Etheredge misrepresented his credtentials for over 10 years -- stating he is an electrical engineer. His c.v. clearly shows that he not an electrical engineer.
