Applied Digital Moves The VeriChip South Of The Border

from the less-regulation-down-there dept

Remember Applied Digital Solutions and their VeriChip implant? This is the company that lied about receiving FDA approval to put chips in humans, and later ignored the few rules the FDA did give them. They also sued one of their own creditors after they missed out on a loan payment. Apparently, things were getting a bit to sweaty in the US, so they've decided to head south of the border. They've launched a promotional campaign to get people "chipped" in Mexico. It sounds like they're promoting it in Mexico to be used to store medical data - which was exactly the thing the FDA told them they could not do in the US.

    No Subject Given

    "Kidnappings, robberies and fraud are common here, and Mexicans are constantly looking for ways to protect themselves against crime."

    How will this device help for kidnapping, robbery, and fraud, except to identify your body? I have a friend who was kidnapped in Mexico. He was chained to a bed for two months. Now if this thing had a radio transmitter it would have been great to help find him, but it doesn't, so they need some other marketing idea. (My friend was released when his family paid a ransom).

    The chip may be detrimental to your health as well. If you are subject to many digital signals this thing may alter your health.
