Conspiracy theories are always interesting.
Who doesn’t like to ponder over individuals, groups or organizations that have covered certain events up.
It is just so amusing to do our own little private investigation online and dig deeper to try to uncover some untold mysteries.
Many conspiracy theories are farfetched and are unbelievable while others actually ended up being true.
Here is a list of former conspiracy theories that ended up being true and proved the world wrong.

3. GM Streetcar Conspiracy
There was a very interesting rumor that between 1938 and 1950, top officials at General Motors made the decision to buy train and rail systems in cities so that people would be forced to buy cars.

After years of people digging deeper, it was revealed that this theory was true but it also turns out that GM was not the only one partaking in this idea but many other car manufacturers.
Who knows what sort of tactics car manufacturers are using these days to convince the mass population to purchase their vehicles.
The truth might remain a secret…
