I was approached by 2 Italian men at an Esso gas station at Bayview and Sheppard in Toronto Ontario on Feb 08, 2008. As you may have heard in other reports, they claimed to be designers from Italy and they blew their money at the casino, and basically they needed about $300 to get back home. I ended up calling a friend of mine who spoke Italian to help me figure out if these guys were for real. They were very convincing and in the end, convinced both of us to buy 2 sets of leather Armani Collezoni jackets for a total of $660.

In the end we got 6 fake Armani and even fake leather jackets for an inflated price, all in the name of helping someone we didn't know...
It's easy to spot these fakes once you know what to look for:
- Leather grain is too uniform to be real leather
- Label says A collezioni instead of Armani Collezioni
- Leather smell is too strong

One sure way to tell real leather is to see if a lit cigarette leaves a mark. Test the jacket on an incospicous spot... if it leaves a burn mark it's FAKE!!!

The men were driving a dark blue Jeep with license plate AWVA 132 (Ontario plate)
The first name on the passport was Alessandro, last name Mateo.

Beware of these slick bastards...
