Harold J. Berney, a long-time swindler, decided to use flying saucers to push a scam back in the 1950s. It’s a fabulous story that got a lot of press at the time, but has seemingly dwindled into semi-obscurity (although Nick Redfern’s written about it a bit). We cover the basics in a fairly fun way here, but for an ultra-deep dive into Berney’s long criminal life, I recommend checking out the definitive piece on him over at The Saucers that Time Forgot.
And if you like saucer swindlers, be sure to check out our episode on Reinhold Schmidt, if you haven’t!
