BTW, when you detect a scam on iKitesurf, report it by clicking on the "Is this a scam? Report it" button.

It's the only way iKitesurf has to avoid other unaware people of being stolen

First question for all ikitesurf classified ads is "When and where did you buy the kite?" I've asked this question 4-5 times and never received a response, all were scams.

If you have any bad experience on kiteforum.com please contact me immediately, and I will block the user immediately.

A new user is always suspicious anyway I'd they only post one ad and nothing else.

That doesn't work unfortunately.

I tried to report a guy scamming a 16m Naish Boxer 4 times in 6 months. They would never pull the ad...

unfortunately, it doesn't remove the ad, however, it leaves the ad market for other users.

The problem is that you must be logged in to see these marks

I had a totally different experience , on iKitesurf :
Answered an add, for a 15m Edge ; then
Paypaled the money , and received a nicely packaged kite
a bit later.
It wasn't an Edge , it was a C4 ; and when i contacted the guy
about it, he refunded the money, and told me to keep the kite.

I just sold my Pivot 11m and 8m online.

Not sure if it's to a scammer or not. He was willing to overpay if I shipped them immediately.....

3,000 Rupees!!!
