Today, June 9,2010 my husband & I were walking out of Home Depot & we were approached by a man who goes by the name Raffaele.He was really well dressed & in a Lexus SUV. He told us he only spoke italian but since my husband & I speak spanish we understood him perfectly.

He told us that he was the manager of Armani Exchange &.handed us each his "business card".He told us that he had gone last night to the galeria in downtown Houston due to a show he had to show these "NEW" jackets that had not came out to the market yet.

And that he was leaving to Italy today & he didnt want to pay taxes and that he would give us all 6 jackets if we could only pay him half the price of one of them.He Fed us this story about being a christian and having true word and that all he wanted this money for was to buy his little boy a gift from here, Houston, before leaving to see him & his wife over in Italy.

He told us he didnt need money at all & just as he was saying this he pulled a whole lot of 100 dollar bills & italian money out of his pocket.He said he just wanted to get rid of the jackets so that he wouldnt have to take them with him to Italy & pay taxes.

We told him we weren't interested but that we could call a friend of ours that might like to buy one.But he told us he didn't have time & then he started taking out the jackets and with a cigarette lighter, held it up against the jackets & of course nothing happened to them. We were impressed by what we saw.

He kept on talking about just being able to sell just this one jacket and help us out by us keeping the rest for free. He made my husband hold out a bag he had  and started putting the jackets into the bag & just as my husband was trying to put the bag of jackets back into his car he got in his way and kept on insisting .

My husband said he didnt have $500 to give him for them.{Because he told us each was worth $1,212.}So he said what was is that we would be able to give him for them.And my husband said $250.

So sure enough he himself put the 2 bags inside our vehicle & told us he trusted us.And that he would follow us to the bank.So we went to the bank & paid him the $250 for the jackets.He asked us for our numbers & said that whenever we went to Italy to give him a call because now he was our "friend" for life & that may God bless us."

Well none of this  seemed right to me at all.I had the feeling this was a huge scam and I googled his "name" & out came his name on this website here.With 2 other peoples stories with how this man scammed them.

And as far as the jackets, they're so fake.Not real at all.My husband had thought he landed a great deal.And that it wasn't so bad. But after finding out they're fake & that he's a con artist, it just makes us feel so bad.This has been the worst day of our lives.

I hope this man goes to jail & somehow by the grace of God everyone he's scammed can get their hard earned money back.
