Reportage Georgio Armani Alfonso Merolla Jacket Scam Ripoff Irvine California
*General Comment: Alfonso Merolla you scam I will find you
*Author of original report: CON ARTIST
*Author of original report: RGA Armani Alfonso Merolla
He offered me 3 jackets as a gift and told me that once he got back to Italy he would wire me the money. It was sketchy, but I was dumb enough to trust him. I've always been a nice person when it comes to helping others and I figured I should help him out since out felt so bad for him. I did however ask him why he didn't contact his family, company, and the embassy. For the family he told me that time difference made it difficult for him to reach his family, which after i thought about it later shouldn't have mattered in the situation he was in. For the company he told me that he was new in the company and that if he contacted his boss then he would have been fired, and interms of embassy he said they couldn't help.
Oviously I got taken advantage of and got fooled. I've never been in this kind of situation, understanding him was very difficult, I never would have imagined this kind of thing happening in a town like Irvine, but it did and after this incident happened and I did some investigation on this site it seems it's happened in multiple Southern California locations: Long Beach, Lake Forrest, Costa Mesa, Redwood, Holly Wood. The rental car fee was $176, but I ended up giving this man $200, the money lost is lost, but I'm more upset and hurt by the fact that how someone could do this to another person. I know in this world there are alot of sketchy people, but this was by far the worst human interaction experience I've had. I'm a optimist so I'm not going to rent, but I do want others to be informed of this case so this does not happen to anybody else.
This scam artist will probably read this report and I hope he does and realize what kind of person he is. For others this individual physically is about 5'10 - 5'11 on a chubby side and his partner in was more leaner and wore glasses and remained silent the whole time because he soposedly didn't know any English at all. The scam artist name is Alfonso Merolla his fake passport indicated that he was born on Aprill 28th 1985 and the passport number was AA1309321. He will most likely approach his next potential victim differently so be on a look out for his feature. (chubby cheeks and pointy noise) He looked some what latino with dark tonned skin. If anyone of this character approaches you just call the police.
