just thought its my responsibility to inform the kite community of a possible scam.
So the story goes, saw an ad for a comet going for $970
I send the seller the comet link to confirm that this was what he was selling, he confirmed.
I realised from the wing sizes, it was the 2017 model, then he said he was selling whats in the photos.
So that was the 1st hint, but I really wanted the deal if it was real.
I asked why he was selling it, he said his wife bought him a Zeeko and he loves it.
I checked on the same ad site that he had a few foils and boards for sale, Zeeko as well, all at incredible prices.
All ads were from the same seller but at different locations.
He checked the courier chargers and quoted me $100 from US to Singapore. UPS or Fedex , dam good rate.
The last thing that gave it away was the method of payment that he insisted " PayPal family and friends" or bank transfer.
He said normal paypal will take 21 days. Really???
to end it off, he said "Sir. I cannot wait for 21 days before I get my money. If the options i gave you don't suit you then it's fine.
I won't ship without having my funds in my hand and there are people who are asking for the foil.
Before I reveal the link, let me know what you think.
I hope that if this guys is a scammer, no one will fall for it.
