This sounds a bit too good to be true. e-Foil surfboard. I thought these things were $1600.00? Today only $149. ??

Yeah, e-foils seem to be the latest scam. These ads are all over facebook. Lots of different fake companies and websites so that Facebook can't keep up with deleting the ads. They pull the vids and pics from legit websites. I don't think there are any e-foils out for under $10,000 yet...

BTW, if you saw it on Facebook, mark it as a "scam" so that it's deleted.

Dear sir,

Our company would like to purchase 100 - 500 units for resale with further orders to follow. Do you have a discount for high volume orders or dealer pricing available? Can you apply custom graphics?

I had a similar experience that left me baffled at first. They wanted to purchase my car immediately, send me an above selling value in full. Said that they were in Tallahassee FLa. purchasing for their poor injured soldier returning from a sandbox, and that they would send a flatbed transport truck next week. It was just way too good to be true. All I needed to do was give them my PayPal address and I'd see the cash.
