Scam
Major surfboard phishing scam being reported

by Steve | Sep 24, 2018

Have you seen the ads? Firewire from 76, Channel Islands from $116, Bings $106.. Lib Techs, Fannings, Taklyamas and Waldens all at amazing prices.

As much as I would like to believe you can have the worlds best quiver for 1000 with free packing and post something is not quite right here. So I asked the UK’s importers what was going on and they are reporting a phishing ‘scam’.

Multiple cloned websites and targeted Facebook ads look pretty legit. Even when you doing down through them, until you release you simply can’t pack and spot a board for that much never mind make any money out of selling it.

Traces back through the damian’s are coming from China and rerouting through Holland. A US surf shop has had their site cloned. It is all happening.

Please be aware, report the ads and inform others.

Domains affected include surfstationstore and surfboardstores
