phantomplate.com Photo Shield license plate cover also is a scam. I bought one and you can photograph your license plate same with or without the plastic cover. Waste of money and you will notice they DO NOT offer a m harrisburg, Pennsylvania

I purchased the license plate shield, installed it, and then photographed my license plate with a flash on my camera. License plate is completely readable. No glare whatsoever. There is NO offer of a money-back guarantee, so that should have told me something, also had I checked HERE first I would have been forewarned. All these products are just scams- snake oil. Even some of the news reports if you follow enough links- will tell you it doens't work, but the ones they point out say it does. I don't think anything you can do about it- You can't make a federal case out of a $25 ripoff- but you can warn others.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Serves you right

AUTHOR: Josh - (U.S.A.)

So, you are trying to break the law in at least two ways: obscuring your license plate (illegal; a $250 fine in CA), and presumably running red lights (which is also extremely dangerous).  Somehow, I don't see the problem here.  Learn to drive and stop running red lights, and then you won't have a need for such a product.

UPDATE to my "photo shield does not work"

AUTHOR: dand1001 - (United States of America)

I made ONE LAST attempt to see if there is any validity to the photo shield product. As I stated, when photographed DIRECTLY it shows completely clearly, even from a side angle it still clearly identifies the license number. Numbers transposed in the photos to protect identity. Captions FAIL, will not upload if there is anything in caption box. I have been unable to find an angle where the photo shield will conceal the license number, and I made several tries. Their ad fails to offer a money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied, THIS IS WHY.
