    Check out these loathsome pieces of bull:poop: purportedly from the mouth of " World traveler Takara Licausi":
    If you Google for a real company named "Surf Patch", please post if you find anything. I can't.

    They even have a web site, basically nothing but B.S & contact form: http://surfpatch.com

    Some TSA suckup by the name of John Monderine appears to be in charge.

    LinkedIn has an entry for Takara Licausi, occupation "SEO". SEO is largely a scam/spam industry that tries to trick search engines (esp. Google) into ranking sites higher. Day job appears to be "bill collector".

    Interesting that neither LinkIn profile by the two (who appear to hail from New York) mentions Surf Patch, founded (according to its barely-there web site) by three people in California in 2000.

    My guess is that they're trying to build up links for one of their SEO projects.

    Just when you thought nobody could be as unethical as a TSA employee, someone comes along to prove they're at least equally unethical as any TSA employee...
