The Tilley Foundation charger technology is based on some super
high-efficiency principles invented by Robert Kibbey, but Tilley has taken
those and exaggerated them to unreal proportions as part of a con job to bilk
investor money. Flight risk high based on previous scams he has ran. Civil
action under way. The man needs to be in hand cuffs ASAP. He has given the
free energy world a black eye, and defrauded over 40 people. GE is on his tail
for fraudulently claiming at the first Tilley Foundation shareholders meeting
May 4, 2002 that one of their vice presidents offered 2 billion, 'sight
unseen.' (documented on video tape.) He probably believed he could actually
get several billion, as inquiries have been pouring in, but his day in the sun
must stop before he pulls off one of the largest heists in history.

shareholders as well.

When I first heard about Tilley's electric vehicle
driven by a mysterious charger that keeps the batteries perpetually topped, I
wanted to believe it was for real, and a manifestation of the "free energy"
that mankind is now learning to harness -- solar energy being the most obvious
example of extracting energy from a virtually inexhaustible source.
I began this feature website of Tilley's technology with the intent of
giving adequate coverage for this phenomenal development.
As time progressed and I had interaction with Carl Tilley and his associate
Doug Littlefield, I began to see that they were less than ethical in their
dealings with me. I still remained hopeful that their technology was sound,
even as I grew less confident that the technology was theirs originally to
I still hope that they have something worth while in their black box, but I
am skeptical enough of their ethics that I am willing to give voice on this
forum for responsible claims of fraudulent activities by Carl Tilley.
Carl is encouraged to provide evidence to the contrary.

After writing the above, I put this exposé page on hold, pending hearing
back from Robert Kibbey, but my requests for confirmation were not returned.
With Walter Webb blowing whistle on the Tilley Foundation, I can no longer
withhold, but must contribute to the exposing of this for what it is: a
malicious scam operation by a professional con man.

Greater Things News Service
Sterling D. Allan was fired from the free energy company on which he
sat on the board, and for which he was the primary public figure. The firing
came as a result of his continuing
of the Tilley Foundation. They stated: "As a company, we cannot condone our
primary public spokesman being part of attacking a competitor, whether or not
the case is warranted. He was not acting in an official company capacity when
he undertook this exposé."
