Shotgun Sales Soar as CashFly Stock and Drones Fall

ALASKA – Just weeks after a successful IPO and pleased customers received their first cash withdrawals, both CashFly’s stock as well as its drones are crashing.

While the market had high hopes for this high-flying service, cyber experts warned of the risks of the drones and their cash being diverted to other locations by cybercriminals. However, what actually took place was far simpler than anyone anticipated. Despite CashFly’s investment in cyber security, another risk was not anticipated.

“I was flying the drone across a farmer’s cornfield in Iowa when it happened,” explains former CashFly drone pilot Caleb Anderson. “And then it just lost control and came crashing down. The next thing I knew, I had lost visual.”

What Caleb didn’t realize at the time was that the farmer also took to the skies; with the birdshot from his 12-gauge shotgun. Once the report of this spread, CashFly experienced more and more of these instances occurring. In just a few weeks the fleet was cut in half.

The effects of down drones also dropped CashFly’s stock price, falling from $938.73 per share down to $1.01 per share. With no way to combat the target practice of their drones, things look bleak for CashFly.

Meanwhile, shotgun maker Baxter Arms Co. saw a nearly 50% jump in sales. And their new slogan of “defend your homes and claim your cash” may be a big reason. A starter shotgun from the company costs $245 while the cash in a CashFly ATM drone is around $10,000.
