Life Patch Scammer Convicted

Lifepatch Flux Capacitor



Back in 2009, I posted about a huge scam in Israel — the “billion dollar lifepatch” which could “predict” heart attacks and send a warning via mobile phone to the hospital. One didn’t have to be a cardiac surgeon to quickly understand that the lifepatch was nothing more than a get rich quick scheme, but I’m baffled that so many people fell for this gimmick.

I’m not surprised that Israel’s president, Nobel Prize winner Shimon Peres gushed about this huge “breakthrough” — he still continues to believe to this day the same about the Oslo accords and his agreements with his co-winner of the Nobel prize, Yassir Arafat were a mega success.   Scientists and pragmatics know there are no quick and “easy” schemes for peace or cardiac “life patches”, but apparently Israel’s start up nation breeds stupidity in addition to quality ideas.

Today, the life patch chief defrauder, Arik Klein was sentenced to 6.5 years for fraud and his partner in crime, Dr. Amos Buchnik was sentenced to community service. (Calcalist).
