Hi Ray



Thanks for bringing this to my attention, this is a new one I’ve not seen before.



Indonesia seems to be home to a number of these crowds that are or appear to be fraudulent. You can never get any decent info on them, I’ve asked my legitimate distributor over there to look up a few in the past & he comes back without any info at all, they don’t seem to exist except on the web. Alibaba auction house seems to collect them a lot, but this one is a new one.



I’m amused by the reduction in price, how could anyone think it was legitimate but they are preying on the gullible unfortunately. Did you look at the 15” coil – reduced from $1,100 down to $200??



We have a big warning on our website pleading with people to only buy through authorized dealers, this is the reason, once you start dealing with companies who are not authorized & especially if they are offering discounts that appear magical, then the buyer should be VERY CAREFUL.



All the best



Ian
