    I'm behind you if you can show they took $500 from your account. I moved up to the $500 level at the end of May.

    The bank you were using at the time should have your records for the transaction. I think they keep them for a minimum of seven years. But it might take a little time if it's already archived. Plus, if you made your deposit before 2014 if your memory of the total reservation number is correct, you actually have $900 credit to apply to your Elio ($500 deposit + $250 50% match + $150 30% bonus match for long time supporters.)

    I'm looking for good things soon.

    We may have different perspectives at times, but we're in the same boat, though I never made it to six figures before going on disability.

    ps Rich is anyone making more than you. Few ever consider themselves rich no matter what they make.

    You can to the Elio Motors Site, or you can go to it directly at http://myelio.me
    When you're on that page, click "Start Configurator"
    This is more or less the Beta version, and there will be many changes to it in the future, more options, possibly different prices; it's just something to let you get the feel for how EM is going to do their builds when ordering.
    As for a schedule of appearances, the Elio Motors site is the place for those too.
    It will tell you where, when and which Elio; they are touring with both the P4 and the P5

    It is pretty easy to contact Elio. At the bottom of the Elio Motors website are two links that apply to your question. "Contact us" and "Tour Events".

    Easy Peasy.

    I can't imagine spending that kind of dough and forgetting it.

    ".....where you may feel at home"

    It may make her feel at home; ok, I'll play along, why?

    Might be because it is as active as she is. She hasn't even visited since she started the conversation.

    You saw that too.
    She left fairly soon after writing the post, and hasn't been back since.
    She could be looking in as a "Guest", but I think it was just a venting post.
    It does sound a little suspicious; says she put the deposit in a long time ago and then forgot about it?
    And then goes on to say "she meant to tell it $250, but it took $500 by mistake; took a while to recover".
    And then get a letter from EM saying she only put $100 down?? Ok, so why wasn't your first call to EM?
    Why wait for a while, and then vent about it here.
    Then goes on to slam "rich people" (aka anyone that put $1K down).
    But does include she waited 2 years for her new Smart.
    Closes with "by the time it shows up I'll be homeless or dead" and she's only 57.

    Anyone one else happen to see the red flags?

    I surmised it as another BS post from the beginning.(No common sense used)
