A well known scam. You can't do power factor correction that way. There are line-interactive PF correction devices available for large electricity users, but even those are tailored to the particular user.

Small electricity users are not charged separately for less than unity PF. Larger users are given electric meters that account for that and if you are a large enough user you will be required to keep your PF within certain limits or be cut off from the grid.

As I thought, so simple and inexpensive could only be a scam.
I even got to see it advertised by certified companies,
