Oh come on, do you really believe that?
Of course it is not true. There is no such thing as a memory wipe unless perhaps the person
is having a lobotomy which is illegal in the USA, by the way.
There are a lot of reasons why that is an article being promoted. A few might be:
- Traffic - simple marketing ploy to increase traffic
- College Discovery - students and people from organizations often perform studies to get
reactions and study the reactions they get
- Fruit Cake - the writer is a nut
There are gazillions of reasons why that is wrote and being promoted. However, there is no
scam or fraud to it that I can see. You even said yourself, who knows if the story is true...
my guess is, it is not true because if you read it closely, you'll realize it does not make sense.
