Giorgio Beck or Giorgio Metzger or Giorgio Metzger Beck is a an Italian conman who enjoys degrading women and has no money and lives in a shitty apartment with a futon couch. [continued below]....

..... He also writes fake checks. His real name is Francesco Pansardi and he is a two bit broke struggling PR person who needs to use women to prop up his weak ego because he can’t get a date in the real world. He is probably depressed because NYC is full of wealthy multi-millionaires and billionaires and his crappy lack of success has led him to taking it out on young girls. Total loser…

This sick freak sees men, tries to have them drink, then tries for bb/fs. SICK! Do not see this loser. Also, many rumors around town that he does not pay.

I had a bad experience trying to rent "Designer Decorated Loft Apartment with roof-top" in Chelsea through Francesco Pansardi who is director for Flag Travel Corporation. He was initially great and got back to me promptly, but 2 days before leaving for NY I sent him our arrival details only to be told the apartment was not available due to building not meeting fire regulations. fair enough. However, I eventually had to get my $500 deposit back by going through my bank as mediators.

So I would not recommend dealing with him.

We tried to rent the same apartment in August last year. What do you know - five days before arrival I wrote to confirm. I didn't hear anything for three days, and then two days before our arrival he wrote me that I couldn't have the apartment after all because the owner had an emergency of some sort. This was the first time in 20 e-mails that I found out he wasn't the owner.

He then offered an alternative apartment, an two days before you don't have a lot of choice. It was not a disaster, but not as nice as the one we wanted.

I wondered if it was a trick with the attractive Chelsea apartment - now I know.

He's a crook.

I wish I had read this message before booking. I am having the exact same problem with Francesco pansardi. I booked probably the same apartment in Chelsea in jan this year for the first week in july, only to be told three days before we were due to leave that it was no longer available. He did find an alternative apartment but he has still not returned our deposit so it looks like i am in for a long battle to get that Back. Be warned don't deal with him.

We had similar issues with Francesco Pansardi and his colleague Brian Sandorini. 24 hours before we flew from Paris to New York, we were advised that the designer apartment we booked in Chelsea was not available as the owner had 'broken her leg' and couldn't leave. They offered two other apartments - meaning we had to move mid holiday - and told us it wouldn't cost us any more. The apartments were inferior to the one we had booked, and it took quite a few emails to get this sorted out. I WOULD NEVER DEAL WTIH FLAG RENTAL/TRAVEL AGAIN AS WE HAD DELAYED EMAILS IN CONFIRMING THE BOOKING, CONFUSED INSTRUCTIONS, AND THEN THE LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION. WE ALSO HAD TO WAIT FOR THEM TO ADVISE THE COST OF ONE APARTM

We had similar issues with Flag Rentals/Travel. Avoid them at all costs. We had delays in emails, and then booked a 'designer apartment' which also was cancelled 24 hours before we flew from Paris to New York. they offered other options and tried to charge us at the higher rate for apartments that were not at the same standard. Our experience generally has been good in NYC, but with this organisation it really ruined our time in NYC, and we have been there many times and always had a great time. I would avoid anything to do with them.

Anyone has any suggestions ?

AUTHOR: Anon - ()

Let me tell you something about this man -

Back in 2009 i purchased some american shares which i assumed were 100% worthless, then last month this personcalled me up to "warn" me about possible scams related to the shares, they called me about three or four times and then started to ask if i would sell them.

To cut a long story short they told me that if i paid $36000 in upfront taxes then they could get me around $50000 for the shares in an "off market" sale. The phone number is now dead but the website is still there.

Does anyone here have any advise, i have called the police etc but i just need the money back!

Thanks in advance for any advice.

do NOT make this man fool you

AUTHOR: Jeff - ()

This CON Artist goes under other names such as Massimlo Giovani and he claims his nickname is Max.

He is nothing but a LIAR, and unfortunately a good one! Do NOT listen to him and STAY AWAY from this criminal and evil man! He already have one complaint on this site and I’m 100% positive he will get many many more! He promise you LOTS of things and will give you a BAD CHECK that will then be returned and stopped! This you won’t find out until AFTER he have used you! It is a crime to give a bad check! According to the other complaint on this site he likes men too so he is BI!

Please, girls and boys do NOT make this man fool you! He is very charming, manipulative and a good actor. Please, do NOT make ANY business with this Freak! He will ONLY FOOL YOU! In other words, he is the Devils Advocate
