Conclusions Drawn from the N. C. Radiation Protection Report

As you will find out in this article, the goal of Andrea Rossi and Industrial Heat LLC is to obtain an additional “hundreds of millions” of dollars from their ongoing fraud and scam called the e-cat. This article also shows that it is impossible that all of the people involved in this project are telling the truth. Clearly some or all of the people involved are telling tall tales, lies and/or falsehoods. We give the addresses of 15 properties in the Miami area that are owned by Andrea Rossi and his partners, all purchased after Industrial Heat LLC raised $11.5M with a SEC filing. And after Industrial Heat LLC purchased the e-cat IP, world manufacturing rights, and licensing rights to some parts of the world from Rossi. We even show what we think their game plan and method is to get investors to put up the additional “hundreds of millions” they are wanting.

First we discovered that Thomas F. Darden, Chief Executive Officer – Cherokee Investment Partners LLC, also Manager / President, “Executive Officer – Director – Promoter” of Industrial Heat LLC, gave false information to a news reporter, for an article which, in our opinion, is clearly designed to raise money from investors.
Please see our article here: Thomas F. Darden LIES about the ‘Elforsk-Levi Test #2’

Now we find that John T. Vaughn, an analyst with the investment company Cherokee Investment Partners LLC, who is also the Vice President and is an “Executive Officer – Promoter” of Industrial Heat LLC, along with Jim Fogleman – Chief Financial Officer, Investment Services – Cherokee Investment Partners LLC, who is also the accountant for Industrial Heat LLC, according to the N. C. report, possibly and very likely, gave deliberately false and misleading information to the investigators from the North Carolina Radioactive Materials Branch Health Physicist, Radiation Protection Section.

Please see our article documenting 600+ quotes from Andrea Rossi, the Chief Scientist at Industrial Heat LLC, in which Rossi said Industrial Heat LLC had a factory and was involved in R&D and manufacturing in Raleigh, North Carolina. Statements contradicting those of JT Vaughn.
600+ Comments from Andrea Rossi about Working with Industrial Heat LLC, (Sales – R&D – Factory)

600+ Comments from Andrea Rossi about Working with Industrial Heat LLC, (Sales – R&D – Factory)

It has always been our opinion that it is a crime to give false and misleading information to any government investigator in the performance of their official duties. Maybe things are different in North Carolina, and you can send investigators on a wild goose chase with exemption from punishment or freedom from the injurious consequences of their actions. Actions that in this case, might be their way of trying to prevent the details of the fraud and scam they are involved in from reaching the public. A move they might have thought would allow time for more investors to jump on board, or prevent the 14 investors who already invested in Industrial Heat LLC from finding out the truth and filing a lawsuit for fraud.

“Obstruction of justice is a criminal offense of interfering with the administration or process of law, or withholding material information or giving false testimony.”

PART 1 – A VERY BRIEF HISTORY

Mr. Andrea Rossi, a known felon who has spent over 12 years in prison or on house arrest, has been running an investment fraud and scam relating to a cold fusion/LENR nuclear reactor (Rossi’s description), a device he calls the e-cat or energy catalyzer. Rossi’s latest fraud and scam the e-cat is over 7 years old, seven years without one true 3rd party verified working device. Rossi filed the first patent application for the e-cat in 2008. The only thing produced by Rossi are tests and demos, designed to attract more investment money. Rossi is constantly changing investors and partners. Rossi’s first partner was Defkalion, a company that has closed its doors, under claims of fraud by principals involved. This is not the place to detail the full story of Rossi’s fraud, please read more detailed accounts of the exploits of the felon and con-artist Andrea Rossi including a lot of information relating to his past frauds and scams on these websites:

PART 2 – THE MAJOR PLAYERS

Andrea Rossi –
Mr. Rossi is a known felon and criminal who came to the USA from Italy, who lives in Miami, Florida.
Mr. Rossi created a company involved in a massive fraud and scam in Italy during the years from 1988-1996. In connection with that project called Petrol Dragon, and other charges, Mr. Rossi spent over 12 years in prison or under house arrest. In 2000 Mr. Rossi was sentenced to 8 years in prison for “aggravated fraudulent bankruptcy.” A bankruptcy related to his failed Petrol Dragon fraud.

To understand what is going on, everyone must keep in mind Andrea Rossi’s past history. Let us look at just some of the legal trouble of Andrea Rossi.

  • Andrea Rossi was sentenced to 8 months in prison for environmental crimes, well documented in newspapers, and that sentence was never overturned.
  • Andrea Rossi was found guilty for many lesser crimes, involving recordkeeping relating to hazardous materials, non-payments of taxes, non-payment of fines, etc., and Rossi even pled guilty to some, all well documented in the newspapers, and all never overturned.
  • In the Italian legislature it was reported that Andrea Rossi paid over $700,000 in fines during the 1990s, (old money).
  • Andrea Rossi had all of his operating and business licenses for waste handling, fuel oil and gas manufacturing and storage, and for his refinery, revoked for violating the “laws of the land,” and although Rossi fought mightily he never got them back, facts well documented in newspapers.
  • All of the property owned by Andrea Rossi, and used in his Petroldragon fraud and scam, including the land, the storage tanks, and the refinery, was impounded by the law and the courts. This land was eventually given to the local jurisdictions. But the local jurisdictions could only use the land after it was remediated at an expense of over $60 million Euros. All information well documented in newspapers.
  • Over 300 businesses were caught up in Rossi’s Petroldragon fraud and scam, resulting in legal action against them also. Many pled guilty. All information well documented in newspapers.
  • After one year of professional tests the Italian courts determined that Andrea Rossi’s patents for his garbage to oil scam was also garbage and could never work as described in the patents. All information well documented in newspapers.
  • Not one person has proved any of our claims about Andrea Rossi to be false, including this one – that in May 2000, Andrea Rossi was arrested in Italy for fleeing the country while on house arrest and for “aggravated fraudulent bankruptcy.” Then in October 2000 Andrea Rossi was sentenced to 8 years in prison, for “aggravated fraudulent bankruptcy” in connection to the collapse of his Petroldragon fraud. In addition, based on that jail sentence, Rossi spent at least 7-8 years behind bars for just that charge alone. It is a fact well documented in newspapers, including the news that as late as 2011 that sentence had NOT been overturned. If it had been overturned at any time since then we are absolutely sure Rossi would have put that fact in his internet bio, something which has never happened.

If anyone can provide verifiable proof that anything we say concerning Andrea Rossi is false, please email us the proof and we will post it online with our corrections.

While serving his 7-8 year sentence in jail for “aggravated fraudulent bankruptcy,” Andrea Rossi decided it was time for a new fraud and scam. Rossi chose to use the dormant cold fusion/LENR “field” as the “vehicle” to carry his new scam. It was the perfect choice, because many of those still “working” in this field was living the good life. Quite a few were having free yearly vacations traveling all over the world, going to their “conferences.” Many people had started companies to commercially develop this new “science,” raising millions of dollars, all living very comfortably on dreams of others. But after 25 years, no one had come up with a device powerful enough to be a viable commercial enterprise. Many people were living “high on the hog” from false and misleading claims relating to cold fusion/LENR. And now Andrea Rossi wanted a piece of the action.

Remember Andrea Rossi was still sitting in jail when he came up with his new fraud and scam. Even though Rossi was mad at those who put him in jail, he was smart enough to realize he had to change his “modus operandi.” Rossi was actually a second rate criminal, proof being he was sitting in jail serving out an 8 year prison sentence.

The various communities in Italy where Mr. Rossi was illegally processing and storing the hazardous waste had to spend over $60 million EURO to clean up the environmental mess Mr. Rossi left behind.

Mr. Rossi then came to the USA and created another fraud and scam we call the “Thermoelectric Scam.” In this fraud and scam Mr. Rossi and his partners bilked the DOD and DOE out of millions of dollars. It was during this scam that Mr. Rossi was arrested on a trip to Italy for the bankruptcy charge.

The year Mr. Rossi was released from incarceration for his “aggravated fraudulent bankruptcy” sentence he immediately started, in 2008, his latest fraud and scam called the e-cat. It wasn’t until January 2011 that Mr. Rossi started publicly demonstrating his latest fraud device.

Starting in 2010 Mr. Rossi has been running an investment fraud where he will sell “licenses” to people so they can try to sell his phony e-cat devices that have never been proven to work as claimed. But Rossi lost at least three of his licensees when the licensees found buyers for the 1MW e-cat but Rossi failed to deliver any devices, and they then threatened to take Rossi to court.

The e-cat, according to Mr. Rossi is a cold fusion or Low Energy Nuclear Reactor. LENR for short.

All during 2010-2012 Mr. Rossi was claiming that he had a factory manufacturing and selling his nuclear reactors in Florida. He needed to claim this to be able to sell his phony licenses. We performed an exhaustive search for any footprints for something of this kind in Florida. We could not find any business licenses or permits. We could find nothing but Mr. Rossi’s two condos in Miami.
The Florida BRC investigated and found out everything Mr. Rossi was claiming was false.
Read that story here. Florida BRC Report

In 2012 Mr. Rossi created the hot-cat, a version of the e-cat that he claimed operated at elevated temperatures, over 1200 degrees centigrade. During 2012-2013 there was a testing team who tested 3 different versions of the device. In 2013 the testing team tried to get their report published but no reputable magazine would publish it because it was so unprofessional. They finally put their report up on a depository website, arXiv. There was a loud outcry from the science community condemning this report.

Rossi is currently involved with many different companies. In this article we are going to discuss only three of them. Here are the Florida Secretary of State filing for two of them.

The following documents include information for both Andrea Rossi, Henry W. Johnson and the companies Leonardo Corporation and REFC Real Estate Corp.

PART 3 – TIMELINE OF EVENTS CONCERNING ANDREA ROSSI AND INDUSTRIAL HEAT LLC

October 24, 2012
Industrial Heat LLC was formed in the State of Delaware for the purpose of buying some rights and IP for the e-cat from Mr. Rossi. All of their business though, is conducted out of an office in Raleigh, North Carolina.
It is our understanding that N. C. state law requires a foreign corporation to register in N. C. but we cannot find any filing on the N. C. SOS database for a foreign filing for Industrial Heat LLC. We are not saying it is not there, we are just saying we could not find any filing there.
From the Delaware website:

Cherokee08

May 03, 2013
Andrea Rossi built just one 1MW e-cat of which we are aware. This was the same one that Rossi demonstrated on October 28, 2011 in Italy. He has dressed it up for different reasons, changing some of the outer cosmetic coverings. Rossi’s story has changed through the years about what happened to this device. Rossi said it was sold many different times to many different people. The last “sale” was to Industrial Heat LLC, who supposedly sold it to a customer and supposedly installed it in a customer’s factory. For the last year Rossi has been claiming he is babysitting this unit at the customer’s factory.
To read all of the hundreds of quotes from Andrea Rossi concerning the R&D, manufacturing, and sales at Industrial Heat LLC please read our article just published:
600+ Comments from Andrea Rossi about Working with Industrial Heat LLC, (Sales – R&D – Factory)

F.Fabiani, an engineer who works for Rossi, posted on Rossi’s blog pictures of the only 1MW e-cat plant Rossi ever made. They were shipping it to Ferrara, Italy to be tested by Industrial Heat LLC there, and then it was shipped to the USA. See details later in the article.

From Rossi’s blog:

May 3rd, 2013 at 7:01 AM
Dear Dr Rossi,
please, find the photos of the 24H performance test of the MW1-Ecat made on April 30 – May 01 and the photos of when it has been transported from Bologna to Ferrara to prepare it for the test.
Best regards
M.Eng. F.Fabiani

Here are the photos:

Speaking about the above pictures Rossi had this to say on his blog concerning Industrial Heat LLC.

Andrea Rossi
May 8th, 2013 at 4:29 PM
Dear Brian:
The plant you saw in the photo has been made in the factory of Bologna, but recently it has been transferred to our factory of Ferrara, bigger and well supplied, to be modified with the application of new technologies, to be delivered to our USA Partner, who tested it in a 24 straight hours test on April 30 and May 1.
At the same time in the USA has been started the manufacturing process. All the next plants will be delivered from the USA factory, while in Ferrara will remain the production of experimental prototypes and relative tests.
Warm Regards,
A.R

The plant in the above photos was the same plant Rossi demonstrated on October 28, 2011. The same plant Rossi was caught lying about when he said it was sold in November, 2011.

Jan. 24, 2014
In our opinion, John T. Vaughn published this self promotional piece trying to raise the additional $8,444,950 USD still allowed in the Form D filing with the SEC.

“RESEARCH TRIANGLE, N.C., Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Industrial Heat LLC announced today that it has acquired the rights to Andrea Rossi’s Italian low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology, the Energy Catalyzer (E-Cat). A primary goal of the company is to make the technology widely available, because of its potential impact on air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels and biomass.
Tom Darden, who co-founded Cherokee Investment Partners, a series of private equity funds specializing in cleaning up pollution, is a founding investor in Industrial Heat. He is one of a small group of like-minded investors who are supporting this technology because it could significantly address a number of social and environmental challenges. They have committed to make it broadly available because of its potential for impact. IH is considering partnerships with industry participants, universities and NGO’s to ensure the technology is developed in a thoughtful and responsible manner.
JT Vaughn manages Industrial Heat. He is the founder of Cherokee McDonough Challenge, an accelerator for environmental startups, and a leader in the startup community in the Research Triangle.
Companies or organizations interested in partnering with Industrial Heat should reach out to JT Vaughn at info@industrialheat.co.”
Industrial Heat Has Acquired Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat Technology

January 2014
Thomas F. Darden claimed that Industrial Heat LLC built and shipped to Europe a nuclear reactor for testing, and Andrea Rossi claimed that Industrial Heat LLC, was making and selling nuclear reactors in Raleigh, NC. We became aware of a report from the North Carolina Radioactive Materials Branch Health Physicist, Radiation Protection Section – Division of Health Service Regulation, concerning those claims. We just recently published an article based on their final report.
JT Vaughn Tells Investigators Rossi is NOT Credible

In our opinion, Thomas F. Darden was doing all he could to help raise the additional $8,444,950 USD still allowed in the Form D. Mr. Darden was the person promoting the e-cat fraud and scam here in these articles.

“Cherokee, launched by Darden in 1985, typically invests about $10 million a year in clean-tech companies. He says the accelerator is a way to encourage young clean techs that need a push to stay ahead of the competition.”
Raleigh’s Cherokee intends to nurture clean-tech firms

“Industrial Heat, a new entity, has banked some serious cash, hauling in $11.6 million of a $20 million round as part of a fundraiser that has Raleigh-based Cherokee Investment Partners’ fingerprints all over it.
A securities filing lists the same address as Cherokee and has two familiar names: Cherokee CEO Tom Darden and its senior analyst J.T. Vaughn, both of whom are listed as executives in the venture.
Cherokee primarily invests capital in brownfield redevelopment and has nearly $2 billion under management.”

Darden says that on a recent trip to China, Industrial Heat was one of the topics he discussed with Chinese officials, “but my main focus was to encourage them to bring new environmental technologies to China from some of the Challenge companies.””
Is Raleigh’s Cherokee trying to cut an energy deal in China?

Executives at Cherokee Investment Partners in Raleigh have confirmed that its affiliate company, Industrial Heat LLC, has acquired the intellectual property and licensing rights to a nuclear device from Italy that some say could one day replace electric or fossil fuels.

Vaughn stated in the news release that the investors in Industrial Heat, including Cherokee Investment Partners co-founder Tom Darden, are most interested in making Rossi’s technology more broadly available to universities, industry partnerships and non-governmental organizations “to ensure the technology is developed in a thoughtful and responsible manner.””
Confirmed: Raleigh’s Cherokee buys into controversial nuclear tech device

 

In 2014 the same testing team (the team that did the test that convinced Darden & Vaughn to invest), tested a different version of the e-cat. Mr. Thomas F. Darden claimed his company, Industrial Heat LLC, built and shipped that nuclear reactor to Europe for testing. Rossi also claimed the same thing, sort of. The report from that test was so bad and unprofessional that even arXiv, the preprint service would not allow it on their database. Their report was first published on an obscure website.
Here Mr. Darden talks about that claim.

“His partner in the venture, Cherokee’s J.T. Vaughn, said at the time that it was about creating a new, cleaner energy source, a technology to “raise the standard of living in developing countries.”
“I’m serious — it’s about air pollution and coal,” Darden says. “Our company is called Industrial Heat. Our job is to make industrial heat and industrial heat is made by coal… We don’t think any energy should be made by coal, so that’s why I’m doing this. This could be a way to eliminate the use of coal.”
While he acknowledges that no technology takes off without the numbers to attract financial investment – he says he’s not in it for the money. He’s in it for the potential the technology has to solve the air pollution conundrum.

Darden calls the new data “promising.”
“So we’ll continue to work on it,” he says.
Darden says his group was not involved with the test cited in the report.
“We built the reactor, but we shipped it over to Switzerland,” he says.

The E-Cat is not being developed without controversy. A previous third-party analysis of the device, published in 2013, was attacked by critics.
Rossi, an Italian inventor and a convicted fraudster (convicted of tax fraud), has, himself, been the subject of global scrutiny.
But Darden isn’t concentrating on the buzz or the skeptics. He’s concentrating on the mission, he says.
“I don’t care who gets there first, how it happens,” he says. “I just want to see it happen.”
And he’s had several high level conversations about the technology, such as one with Chinese officials on a recent trip to China.”
Raleigh investor Darden still bullish on controversial nuclear technology

All of the above newspaper articles are important because Cherokee Investment Partners LLC and their sister companies have many people putting their hard earned money into those funds. When you research where Cherokee Investment Partners LLC obtains its funds, it will bring to mind many thoughts about the ability and decision making of the leaders of those funds – now that they are investing in a fraud and scam by a known felon. Many government and private funds, such as retirement funds go into the funds controlled by Cherokee Investment Partners LLC.

PART 4 – A LOOK AT THE REPORT FROM THE N. C. RADIATION PROTECTION SECTION

Here in Part 4 we are going to compare the information in the report with other known facts relating to the e-cat fraud and scam; Andrea Rossi, John T. Vaughn, Thomas F. Darden and Industrial Heat LLC.

Now let us look at the purpose given in the report for the inspection.
“The allegation is concerning the Research and Development, fabrication and manufacturing of a device called an Energy Catalyzer (E-Cat) that is purported as a cold fusion or Low-Energy Nuclear Reaction heat source. A formal complaint was issued via electronic mail dated November 15,2014 to W. Lee Cox, Chief, Radiation Protection Section.
The electronic mail addressed several articles from the Journal of Nuclear Physics addressing the real possibility of the structure, manufacturing and use of the E-Cat by claims made by Mr. Andrea Rossi, the Chief Scientist at Industrial Heat LLC. The electronic mail addressed one article from Triangle Business Journal confirming that Cherokee Investment Partners have an affiliate company, Industrial Heat LLC, and has acquired the intellectual property and licensing rights to a nuclear device from Italy called the Energy Catalyzer (E-Cat) developed by Italian scientist Andrea Rossi. Industrial Heat LLC partner IT Vaughn, also confirmed through a press release that IH has acquired the rights to Rossi’s LENR device after a committee of independent European scientists concluded after multiple days of testing at Rossi’s facilities that the device worked.”

Based on the report this is what the inspectors were wanting to see. The factory and R&D center where ongoing work is being done, as Andrea Rossi and Thomas F. Darden claimed. They wanted to make sure that nothing was being done that would create a health or safety hazard for the workers or the public.

People seem to forget that every device tested and demoed in 2011 by Andrea Rossi was covered with lead shielding. In addition all of Rossi’s patent applications required various methods of shielding. Any device being manufactured in North Carolina that requires lead shielding to protect the public comes under the jurisdiction of North Carolina Radioactive Materials Branch Health Physicist, Radiation Protection Section. The factory would need special permits and licenses. Based on their own words, i.e., from JT Vaughn, Darden, and Rossi, the government agency had every right and a duty to investigate these allegations.

Now let us look at what JT Vaughn and Jim Fogleman told the investigators.
[NOTE: We believe the spelling in the report of “Jim Fogelman” is a miss-spelling by the report writer, because there is a Jim Fogleman, who is the Chief Financial Officer, Investment Services, for Cherokee Investment Partners LLC, an affiliate of Industrial Heat LLC. If we are wrong in this belief, please send us verification, and we will correct the error.]

From the report:
Investigative Findings:
December 11, 2014
Louis Brayboy and I met with Mr. JT Vaughn at 11:00 A.M. from Industrial Heat, LLC. 111 East Hargett Street Suite 300 Raleigh, NC 27601, on an unannounced inspection and asked him about the E-CAT conceptual model, if radiological materials were on hand, if Mr. Andrea Rossi was available or would be able at a later date. He stated that the E-CAT was being manufactured in Florida and that Mr. Rossi did not appear credible (paraphrase) and that there was a building that he had planned to work at for Research and Development located at 6025 Triangle Drive, Raleigh, NC. He would ask Mr. Fogelman to meet us there the following day. Our survey meters were on during our discussion and at the entrance to the small facility with no survey readings from the two Ludlum Model 19 MicroR meters and an IdentiFinder.

December 12, 2014
Louis Brayboy and I met with Jim Fogelman in the early afternoon and he introduced himself as the accountant of the company at 6025 Triangle Drive, Raleigh. The building did not have the name of the company posted anywhere. Both Louis Brayboy and I surveyed the entire building using two Ludlum Model 19 MicroR meters, one Ludlum 14C with pancake probe and an IdentiFinder. Readings were at background of 15-20 microR/hr throughout the empty warehouse with no survey reading results from surfaces, trash receptacles and sink and bathroom surfaces using the pancake probe. There was no indication of a workbench that may have been used. We asked Mr. Fogehnan a series of questions concerning his knowledge of Mr. Rossi or and R&D work and he stated that he was unaware of Mr. Rossi or the use of the building. Louis and I were required to sign proprietary statements even though there was no propriety items noted.

Now let’s compare notes. [Our comments.]
Statements of JT Vaughn.

“He stated that the E-CAT was being manufactured in Florida and that Mr. Rossi did not appear credible (paraphrase)….”

“….there was a building that he had planned to work at for Research and Development located at 6025 Triangle Drive, Raleigh, NC.”

  • So Vaughn is claiming e-cats are being manufactured, but nobody has heard about this major development? Remember these devices, the e-cat, are claimed to solve most of the energy problems of mankind. They are making these devices that will “save” the world but they are not telling anyone about it? Do you really believe this statement? We don’t, not for one second.
  • What is interesting is that he did not say something like this – “we are not manufacturing anything.” It is clear to us that JT Vaughn is wanting to keep the fraud and scam alive.
  • Where in Florida?
  • Why in Florida, if they already had a complete building they could use for manufacturing there?
  • John T. Vaughn responded to Mats Lewan with the words:
    “Industrial Heat acquired certain rights to Andrea Rossi’s LENR technology. The company continues to support Dr. Rossi’s research and development, and we are hopeful that our funding can lead to new discoveries. Since the acquisition, there has been no departure from our support for this project, or any other projects.” Now here Vaughn only said they support R&D, what about the manufacturing Vaughn said was taking place in Florida? (See Mats Lewan’s writings below.)
  • Rossi, the Chief Scientist at Industrial Heat LLC said many times that both R&D and manufacturing was ongoing in Raleigh, NC. See Rossi’s comments listed below.
  • Rossi claimed many, many times that he was working with a full team of at least 16 people in Raleigh, NC. See Rossi’s comments listed below.
  • Rossi has been claiming for over a year that Industrial Heat LLC built a 1MW plant in their Raleigh, NC factory, and sold it to a customer. And that he and his team will be working with this plant for at least a year. See Rossi’s comments listed below.
  • Rossi is still claiming that 1MW e-cat plants are for sale by Industrial Heat LLC, to be manufactured in their Raleigh, NC factory. See Rossi’s comments listed below.
  • Why did Vaughn say this to Lewan?
    “….we are hopeful that our funding can lead to new discoveries.”
    Rossi is claiming they have 1MW e-cat plants for sale now, using the technology Industrial Heat LLC has already purchased. What did they buy with the $11.5M they raised from the 14 investors? They claim they tested the working 1MW e-cat plant in Italy before it was shipped to the USA. Clearly they must have enough technology now to make thousands of low temperature 1MW e-cat plants like they tested, right?
  • In an article we quote above, Mr. Darden told a news reporter that Industrial Heat LLC, in their own factory, built the nuclear device that was shipped to Europe for testing, and Rossi had nothing to do with it.
  • It would be very interesting to hear a recording of what JT Vaughn told the investigators about Rossi. Why did Vaughn say Rossi was not credible, but then go and tell Lewan they are still supporting him?

Statements of Jim Fogleman.

“We asked Mr. Fogelman a series of questions concerning his knowledge of Mr. Rossi or and R&D work and he stated that he was unaware of Mr. Rossi or the use of the building.”

  • We can understand that it might be possible that Mr. Fogleman would not know the use of the building.
  • What we DO NOT believe for one second, is that the accountant does not know about Andrea Rossi. This is the company created purposely to raise money in the SEC filing, the $11.5M, for the IP and rights to Rossi’s technology.

=======

When Andrea Rossi and Sergio Focardi could not get their paper published that described the e-cat, Rossi started his personal blog the “Journal of Nuclear Physics,” (JoNP). Rossi claims his blog provides the only authoritative location on the internet for his writings about the e-cat.

For those not familiar with the JoNP, comments are put under every article and very seldom have anything to do with the articles themselves. That blog is just a place for Rossi to chat with his followers, thereby keeping his fraud and scam alive. The best way to read all of the comments there is from this website:

1- The reactor that has been used in the Lugano test has been manufactured in the factory of Industrial Heat, in Raleigh, North Carolina.
2- The charge has been prepared by Industrial Heat, as all the charges are now, obviously upon the instructions I delivered with the know how.
3- I had no role in the preparation of the reactor and of the charges, because I trust my magnificent Team. After months of rehearsing, under my direction, the Team of IH is able to manufacture everything without my help. For example, the 1 MW for the Customer of IH has been completely manufactured by them. The reactor used in Lugano is just one out of many of them manufactured in the factory of IH by their workers, directed by their engineers. The charges are made by the top level persons that have access to them.

The Customer we have delivered the plant to has been granted from us a specific performance that is exclusively measured from him by means of the ratio between the electric energy that the plant consumes and that he pays and the thermal energy necessary to his production. What the Customer cares of is how much costs to him make his producton using our plant : if the cost is much lower as expected, the Customer will be satisfied and the test will be positive.
Separately, our Team will take from the plant operation all the data necessary to complete program of R&D using the more than 100 computers that not only regulate the operation of the plant, but also supply the data we want to improve the technology.
Such R&D endeavour is made by our internal scientists and technologists.
Being in a commercial phase, the sole independent party that makes the final verdict is the Customer.

The test of the Independent Third Party did not produce assumptions, it produced measurements.
Assumptions are groundless when the task is to measure.
Let me give you a paradigmatic example: the Customer who has got the 1 MW plant signed a contract where IH gives a guarantee of a certain production of energy with a certain consumption of energy: now, do you think that IH will be paid based on the energy produced and energy consumed measurements, or based on the “assumptions” about how it had to behave?

Welcome back.
…….
The 1 MW plant in the factory of the Customer should be the first stone of the commercial breakthrough, and a commercial breakthrough resolves all the discussions. The 1 MW plants are for sale since 2012, now, for the first time, we have the possibility in the USA to control the operation of our plants in a factory where they are applied to an industrial production and not in a situation of internal tests.
In the late seventies the “experts” used to say that the idea to produce computers for “housewifes” was ridiculous and technologically impossible.
Whatever they are saying now is totally insignificant, as well as what they said in the past.

The R&D and validation work in course is necessary to improve our science, to improve our theoretical interpretation of the so called Rossi Effect, to verify the positivity of the same effect in order to decide and define the Investments ( if any) necessary for the industrialization in large and international scale.
Hundreds of million dollars cannot be invested without a precise and validated background. As I said, joking: we are not here to sharpen the tips of the skyscrapers.

[This statement by Andrea Rossi confirms that the goal of Industrial Heat LLC is to raise “hundreds of millions” of additional dollars. And after 7 years they still do not have a working device. The only way they could do that is by putting the 1MW e-cat plant that was shipped from Italy, in a “factory,” then provide false reports of its operation, with this in hand they could try to raise more funds. It is imperative that investigators locate this operation and shut it down before more people lose money in the fraud and scam now consisting of Andrea Rossi and Industrial Heat LLC.]

Useful comment.
The explosions, or destructive tests, are made in controlled modes, in proper lab, with due control of the radiations made by proper instrumentation. I cannot give further information about these data, but we need destructive tests to find the safety limits within which the E-Cats can work in a stabilized operation. Obviously,no ionizing radiations are released outside the safety box in which the reactor is destructed: by the way, just behind the walls of the box there are my Team and ME.

…..
The past three days have been holidays for most, but for us have been a tremendous period of work during which we made a historic page for what concerns our tech: for the first time, an E-Cat module, entirely produced by our USA Partner in the new factory ( a magnificence), charged with the charge made by the Partner’s CEO, using the materials we teached to buy, prepare, manipulate, treat, to make the charges, assembled , insulated, has started its operation, and the results are the same of the E-Cats built by us. This event means that for the first time an E-Cat not built by me, not controlled by me and not charged by me, not tested in my factory, but manufactured from third parties upon our instructions and know how has worked properly. This is the first unit of the plant that will give to the factory of our USA Partner all its necessary thermal energy, and is also the school ship for the employees. It is very important that it has been completely made by the Customer, not by me: it is the first of millions, but the first is always special……

When we published the article about the report it seems that many people thought the report was a fake. The news reporter Mats Lewan, has some skin in this game, by his involvement with Andrea Rossi’s testing and demos, and his book about Rossi. Lewan who writes for Ny Teknik, Stockholm, Sweden sent an enquiry to both David Crowley, Manager of the Radioactive Materials Branch, N. C., and , John T. Vaughn.

Here are the two statements that Mats Lewan published:

Mr. Lewan,
The report posted to http://www.freeenergyscams.com is in fact a copy of an original report from my office. Please note that the allegation number should be labeled 2015-01 instead of 2014-01 because the investigation was the first one finalized in 2015. Anything stated within the report findings was in context to an allegation investigation of radioactive material being utilized in North Carolina.

The investigators documented what was said and observed. They reported what was communicated to them by Mr. Vaughn, but left out additional descriptive language that followed the statement of credibility.

We have no further information to share about the alleger.
Thank you for your inquiry.
David Crowley

In addition, Mats reported:

I also sent an email to JT Vaughn and asked if he would like to comment.
He answered with a statement from IH:

– – – – –
Industrial Heat, LLC has learned of a report confirming the absence of any radioactive materials in our facilities. While the conclusion was sensible — there was no evidence of radioactive material at our site — the report went on to make other observations beyond the scope of the investigation.

Industrial Heat has invested in energy technologies in their early stages of development. ‎We have a long term strategy of spending our resources on ideas which might or might not be successful in the market. We do this because the world still needs new, clean and efficient energy sources. We remain committed to supporting technologies that will reduce the environmental impact of producing energy and raise the standard of‎ living in developing countries.

Industrial Heat acquired certain rights to Andrea Rossi’s LENR technology. The company continues to support Dr. Rossi’s research and development, and we are hopeful that our funding can lead to new discoveries. Since the acquisition, there has been no departure from our support for this project, or any other projects.

Any suggestions of the views of Industrial Heat, apart from those described here, do not reflect the views of Industrial Heat or its staff.
– – – – –

Final comments

It has been a year since JT Vaughn published his news story about Industrial Heat LLC buying Rossi’s e-cat IP. The question is, why don’t they have a website? Or at the very least a page on one of their existing websites.

As we stated, they own the IP for the device that Rossi claims will change the world. They tested the device in Italy. They read the reports from the Swedes. Why are they so silent now? Look at how they promoted their house building program down in new Orleans. And this technology is supposed to be a million times greater. People are claiming Rossi should get the Noble Prize.

We of course, know the answer. There is no e-cat that works as claimed. It is all a fraud and a scam. And now the principals of a $2B investment fund is in bed with a felon, and they don’t know how to end this thing. We have some good advice – they should go and talk to the RICO division at their local FBI office.
