Crowd funding sites may be exploiting people's well-meaning charity, and people's self-aggrandising virtue-signalling. Beware!

I was made aware of Water Seer because many of my Facebook friends were 'liking' it. I saw the crowd-funding campaign's video on Indigogo and immediately felt that something was fishy. I may be wrong - perhaps this is a legitimate project that might do some good, but to me it looked like a useless project. Here I use my freedom of speech to make not an accusation, but a warning to potential backers to stay alert and to question the value of a project, and not be bamboozled by the trappings of charity into thinking that a project that promises lot of free stuff to poor people in the Third World must be a good thing to invest in.
Possibly Water Seer is a knowing scam, or possibly it is something put together by self-deluded but well-intentioned people. You decide.
The invention here is so simple, that if it worked, I suspect that they might have had invented them thousands of years ago.
