The Pleiadians are alien beings from the star cluster in the constellation Taurus known as the Pleiades. Barbara Marciniak claims that the Pleiadians chose her  to be their messenger. She reveals this in her channeled book, Bringers of the Dawn. According to Marciniak the message is: "If you can clear people of their personal information, they can go cosmic." This message resonates with some people. For example, Kristine Barbieri gave the book 5 stars in her Amazon.com review:

This book really blew me away because it echoes the same ideas as other books I have read. As another reviewer mentioned, this book conveys the same message that David Icke's books do, that Reptilians are really in charge of this planet and keep us locked in fear for their own sustenance.

Another message is: Over 280,000 copies in print and another book, Earth, which sold 80,000 copies in its first eight weeks of publication. This message was not lost on Lia Shapiro, a.k.a. Lia Light, who claims the Pleiadians are also using her as a channel. Her book from the aliens on how they have come to help us evolve is called Comes the Awakening - Realizing the Divine Nature of Who You Are.

Billy Meier (Eduard Albert Meier-Zafiriou), on the other hand, has no book but does have many photos to back up his claim that the Pleiadians have contacted him and given him all the details inquiring minds need to know. Underground Video claims that an investigation of his photos reveals that Billy is a hoaxer. Karl Korff also exposed the hoax, claiming that some of the photos of spaceships were models with bonsai plants as background. One of Billy's photos is claimed to be that a Pleiadian named Semjase, but in fact may have been taken from an old Sears catalog. Billy also claimed that Semjase or some other Pleiadian gave him a piece of alien metal that was analyzed by some character named Vogel [bird in German], but nobody seems to know where this otherworldly metal might be.* A check of www.billymeier.com under "scientific evidence," when it was operating, yielded nothing but a blank page.

One problem with the Pleiadian hypothesis is that the stars in the Pleiades are only tens of millions of years old, while billions of years are needed to develop planets with life and civilizations.*
