Hi guys, I'm an italian kiter and I want to advise you that web site www.indokiteboarding.com is a scam! There are also some fake offer on alibaba.com.
I sent money but they did't sent me the kite...
My friends had the same experience!

Thx Alessio!

I think we already had several postings about it.

In general always ask in forums if some offers sound too good to be true!
Most of the times it is a scam!

If you paid with a credit card you will be able to get your money back. Call up the issuing bank and tell them you didn't get paid. M/C, Visa and Amex are very serious about fraud. They will often refund you immediately while they investigate. The scammer won't have much defense if they can't prove they sent you the item.

We post so many time here and the most important Forum!
There are disclaimer in many of official Web site of brands like Cabrinha and Ozone about scams from Indonesia. I PUT a huge disclaimer on my OWN web site that all others companies in Indonesia are NOT real... Still some guy send money to unknown companies in the other side of the world without making the smaller research first???

If you google their name it does come out second on the page that they are SCAMMERS....

Seriously wake up...

On a good note Alessio you won 1 million US$ in the State lottery in Gana if you send them 1.000 US$ they will send you back your reward within one week... :rollgrin:
