I think you have a better chance of crapping in the queens handbag than you8 do getting your money back from that scammer

Consider it a bad investment. You've done all you can.

An investment implies I got something for my money.

No. It doesn't. An investment is putting money into an asset(foil) with the expectation of a return on investment (delivery) and hopefully appreciation (2 for1). Just "investing" doesn't mean you get anything for your money. Except maybe a confirmation email. Kind of like some late 90's era tech stock certificate. Generally all prudent investments are based on research. Just about any research in Mr C would have shown that he might not provide a good return on investment. So, to comfort or convince yourself you thought. " If one breaks, like of all of those online, I'll have another." Or "I'll sell the second and pay for my foil."

Bottom line is that you made an investment in a product that didn't yet exist. For that risk you were promised a second foil as a thank you for having skin in the game. Hopefully you didn't hedge this investment with startup of a new course racing board company. Otherwise I think you'll survive.

Besides.. Aren't you only in like 850 quid? How about the Americans screwed for $1500 of their currency. You don't see them here pouting like a seven year old.

i disputed the charge with visa and got my money credited back yesterday. purchasing on jan 15th put me long past the 60 day windo. but i receiving a damaged and incomplete unit in june placeing me back in the 60 day window. i explained that this appeared to be a modified Ponzi scheme which generated a few more questions. I have never disputed a claim like this before so i don't know if it will stand. carafino has 60 days to PROVE he has shipped me everything he sold to me. he has now started pimping a 2015 board, shipping in august!

The threats aren't credible, you're not scared and neither is anyone else.
Internet threats from East Asia are not going to hurt you. Grow up, get over it.
Unfortunately, you have parted with your money in foolish ways.

You are going to eat your losses on this, and on the legal troubles you alluded to earlier.
You also previously admitted you are trying or have tried to bring kitesurfing into disrepute, just to get what you want.
You are already banned from BKSA per you own words, for similar behavior.

As a sailor, you should realize you are begging to be sanctioned under Rule 69 by the RYA or any other bodies operating under the racing rules of sailing.

What's more you could even be banned from this forum, if people cease to be entertained by your incessant and monotonous whinge.
Now wouldn't that be awful?

You should stop.
