Victor's Leather Fake Website purporting to be selling designer leather goods Internet
I have been looking at purchasing a men's leather jacket for the last several weeks. I bought one at Bloomingdales during their friends and family event. The retail price was $598, but during the friends and family event, I got a 20% discount, so the price was about $520 after taxes.
After the purchase, I started looking around the internet to see if I could get the same jacket for less. I saw several shopping sites, but then came across www.victorsleather.com in one of my searches. It had the same John Varvatos leather jacket for $185 with free shipping. I was also looking at another jacket, the Theory Reague Canis leather jacket and Victor's Leather also had that one, for $285 (retail $995). Victor's Leather had the correct retail prices listed for both jackets and I was thinking to myself, how could this site sell them for so much cheaper?!? I thought maybe they were the manufacturer in China and these were over-runs or something off the books. [continued below]....
I noticed Victor's Leather had an address listed in Walnut, CA, which isn't too far from my house in Los Angeles, so I emailed the company from their "Contact Us" page and got a response from the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. The email was cordial and seemed like it could be from a company in the USA. The response was "Thanks for contacting us. We want to inform you that yes, Reague Canis Leather jacket and John Varvatos Star Leather Moto jacket are in stock available for shipping. You can order it anytime from our website. Please visit www.victorsleather.com anytime to place your order or you can visit our USA office.
We have one of our outlet in Walnut, CA. The full address is 20639 Lycoming St Walnut, CA 91789. Regards" The email also carbon copied (CC) a email@example.com.
I was starting to lean towards making an order, but I had a funny feeling that the site might not be real, so I wanted to think about it for a while longer and do more research. So I emailed the person back, "Hello and thank you for the reply.
