I recently had an online interaction with the same seller regarding:

http://c.ikitesurf.com/classifieds/33291

Item was listed in honalulu,HI. He wanted payment to Atlanta Georgia for product via iTunes cards, moneygram, or google pay. He refused to use PayPal. Seemed sketchy, I aborted the deal.

I reported this guy a number of times to ikitesurf. They are pretty quick to remove. He posts from various cities usually not common kite locations. Ads are always direct ripoffs from old ads.

if price too good to be true. ..probably is a scam
