I know this is a stupid question.

My wife who is an adventure diver and dove >100 feet but never took the AOW deep dive checkoff.

A vistiing instructor offered to sell us a signed padi pic card ?

So my question is what is a padi pic card ?

A PADI C-Card with your picture on it? A "Pic Envelope" is what you send in to PADI with a picture of yourself to get a C-card made.

Oh we already have padi cards. I wish I got his name so I could turned him in. I wonder how many people got hurt just buying one of those off him for $50 without training. scary stuff

Maybe this is the only part of the AOW she hadn't completed. After diving a deep dive with her, would help her complete her AOW.

Sounds like he was selling the card based on the dive she had already done. Definitely a violation of PADI standards and a recipe for disaster.
