SCAM ALERT –Smoke Smart – Dallas Texas
We have never been more outraged then when your News Blog editor pointed out this ugly scam just yesterday. Smoke Smart, out of Dallas Texas, is a company that EVERYONE needs to know about. We are asking each of you to do your part in helping spread the word about the outrageous prices being charged by this unscrupulous company. Whether you send people to this article or just inform anyone interested in switching to e-cigarettes about Smart Smoke, and others we’ve about, it doesn’t matter. What do matter are the words Smoke Smart + SCAM saturates every search engine, everywhere. Smoke Smart has an online ordering website and are sold in Malls across America, in Kiosks and other places.
Where’s the Scam?
Unlike other SCAM ALERTS Spinfuel has published in these pages, Smoke Smart scams their customers NOT though auto-ship scams, but with the most outrageous pricing scams we’ve ever seen. Here are just some examples:
A: ONE Battery Starter Kit – $149.99
B: ONE 10ML bottle of eLiquid $49.99
C: ONE eGo battery + Clearomizer – $249.99
The e-Liquid SCAM
Not only are the e-Liquid prices so criminally overpriced, Smart Smoke “claims”:
“It takes approximately 3-4 drops to refill a cartridge, so you get to refill up to 60 cartridges with one bottle of our E-Liquid. It takes approximately 8-10 drops to refill a Cartomizers, so you can refill up to 25 Cartomizers with one bottle of our E-Liquid.” - Click Here

In this industry it can be difficult for new vapers or current smokers to weed through the scams from the likes of Smoke Smart, Regal, Saphire, LiftVapor, XO, Emerald LUX, and others, to find companies that offer quality products at reasonable prices. Companies like Smoke Smart harm every decent e-cigarette company every time someone hands over $150 for a $20 starter kit (retail prices), or $250 for a $15 eGo battery. Business practices from the likes of companies such as Smart Smoke reflect badly on every vendor, and the only way to stop Smart Smoke and others is to make sure that anyone performing a search on the Internet will be pointed to articles like this one.
Our message to Smoke Smart: “How you sleep at night is something we’ll never understand. Selling your cheap Chinese made e-Liquid for 800% more than decent companies is a moral crime, taking $249.99 for a ONE eGo battery kit that should sell for no more than $19.99, or $149.99 for ONE battery cig-a-like kit may bring in a few dollars over the short run, but the amount of bad karma you are collecting over the long run will be so enormous that you will never be able to repay. Smart Smoke, and everyone involved in this immoral operation, is an example of modern-day sneak-oil charlatans. What you should feel is “shame”, but that’s probably a feeling you’ve never known.

UPDATE: In our desire to get this Scam Alert out for Smoke Smart we inadvertently mixed up the words, Smoke Smart and Smart Smoke. (Is it just me, or was this an easy thing to do?). We have since corrected the article to reflect the proper name or SMOKE SMART. We apologize for any confusion. Luckily, the URL’s were correct all along. – Editors)
