Some weird people in San Francisco Bay area are leaving insane flyers on the windshield of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) cars. The one-pager clearly states “Consumer Alert” in red-type at the top. The flyer warns vehicle owners that owing a Tesla car means they are involved in an “organized crime.” It goes on to urge drivers that they should return their cars and demand a full refund.
It seems to be a conspiracy against Tesla
Tech journalist Ryan Block found such a flyer on the windshield of his Model S electric car. He posted a photo of this strange rant on Twitter yesterday. It has a long list of blatant claims targeted directly at the Elon Musk-led electric vehicle maker. Anyway, someone with a fair good knowledge about Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) can easily debunk most of the 15 allegations.

The flyer alleges that Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) urged the Afghan invasion to get lithium for batteries used in its cars. It claims that the batteries used in Tesla vehicles release “cancer-causing fumes that can destroy your brain, lungs and nerve system.” If that wasn’t enough, the flyer adds that “you are supporting corruption by driving a Tesla.”
It makes a wild allegation that Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) bribed David Strickland, ex-chief of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to award the highest safety rating to its vehicles. We are particularly fond of its claims that Tesla drivers have a “higher-than-average inclination towards strange sexual behavior, drugs and risk.”
Still unclear who is spreading the lies about Tesla
The flyer adds that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG) is a silent partner of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA), and it hushes up bad news about the electric vehicle maker. It says “by driving a Tesla you are supporting spying.” Besides, it claims that the San Francisco-based company buys “reviews“, magazine articles and TV shows, and pays journalists to write only good things about the company.
It’s still unclear where this conspiracy-heavy flyer comes from.
