*General Comment: in College Park Maryland area

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I was asked by a guy for directions to the Calgary airport. After giving the directions to him he started a friendly chat and explained me the purpose of his trip to Calgary (we were in the Parking lot at Westbrook mall). He told me that he was an "Armani" representative and he had a fashion show the night before.

He also mentioned to me that he didn't want to take all the clothing he was carrying with him back to Italy. He proceeded then to show me some leather jackets that according to him were from the "Emporio" collection 2006 and worth more than 1000$CAN each. He also said that he had many of them at home and since summer was approaching in Italy therefore nobody would be interested there.

He asked me for $CAN 900 and he would give them to me (3 jackets). He also said that he didn't like the idea of doing business on the street but he had this time constraint for going to the airport, he indeed showed me plane tickets and passport. I accepted and bought them. After the purchase I went home and did some research and found out that these were facked Armani jackets and this guy is a "scam artist".

He is really professional on this and the leather jackets are actually vinyl-leather and to be honest are nicely made and can fool anyone who is not knowledable. As a refference this guy dresses very smart, he has an strong italian accent, he introduced to me as Vincenzo (he had bussiness cards), he is around 5ft 11" (178 cms) medium built, around 40 - 45 yrs old, dark hair, italian/mediterranean look.
