Sorry Folks but that El Paso Cube UFO is a Total Hoax

- in UFOs

This video by notorious hoax purveyors Secure Team has been making the rounds the past few days:


While those images look great, it’s pretty obviously a hoax. They claim the images were sent directly to them and what do they do? Do they offer up the images for download so that they can be analyzed and scrutinized by the Ufology community? Oh no, they decide to cram them all into a cute video montage with some creepy music and an adolescent narration to make a few bucks from YouTube ads.

Until the actual images compiled for the video are made available I’m considering this cube to just be a big ol’ box of crap.

There were also no reports made to MUFON or NUFORC regarding this supposed event in El Paso, Texas.

A few other points that make me think this is a hoax are:

He mentions the cube appears to be coming out of the “portal” at a high rate of speed, yet there is no motion blur to indicate this is the case. Apparently the photographer had no intention of taking a picture of the craft initially because he didn’t see it, but was simply trying to get a picture of some “anomalous clouds”, however, those clouds look pretty average to me. Lastly, he mentions that the second witness described the cube’s sound as being like that of a “magnetic oscillation” and I find it a little hard to believe that the average person would describe a sound like that rather than by saying something like “pulsating hum”. Not that it’s not possible, and I’m sure any number of us fellow UFO nuts and techno geeks might use such terms, but without knowing more about this woman I’m dubious these were the words she used. This assumes she actually exists, of course, which she most likely does not.


  1. I tracked down the source that “took” the photos… He is part of a aerial media production company that was in financial trouble… I redacted most of his info to protect his privacy… This picture expires in 10 hours….

    You have some really good points with regards the photo’s especially how if they were sent the photo why did they not offer it to the global population to scrutinize(a download link etc),thanks Rufus you have saved me a night of trawling info on the cube!,kind regards

  3. Thanks for the kind words and for stopping by! I’ve asked those guys to provide raw / source photos or footage from several of their videos and they’ve never responded…not that I’ve necessarily been surprised!

    On a related note, if you haven’t checked it out have a look at the UFO Theater channel on YouTube. That guy does a great and amusing job debunking other hoax videos that muddy our already murky waters from these same guys and other folks.

    It’s a sad fact of ufology that we have to waste so much time weeding out deliberate hoaxes!

  4. I agree. I don’t believe this is true. I don’t think the average person knows what a magnetic sound is. I know I don’t. Also, the photos that are provided clearly look like a square cube and one of the last photos after the cube exits the portal, the cube is a rectangle. Secureteam doesn’t even talk about the sudden change in shape from square to rectangle. I think this one is a hoax.
