Just this web store,I bought Armani from them.Before I made an order,the told me that the Armani they supply is made by the OEM factory,the same quality but the much lower price.But when I got the Armani,all the items are fake!Very bad!

I contanted them about thee Armani I bought,guess what they said????

They said,when I made the order,I should know the Armani I bought was fake.So they refused return my money.And they told me that if I make another orer ,they will give me more discount.

Well,dont believe this store,and dont just look at the price.

RGA Armani sucker in Miami

Middletown Township, New Jersey 5 comments

Italian guy just pulled up next to me at a light and began telling me the same story about not wanting to go back to Italy with his left over Armani jackets as he didn't want to pay the fees for taking them back. Offered me a great deal and ended up suckering me for $800 for 3 jackets and 3 shirts.

I got his license plate off the Toyota SUV he was driving. Also spoke to a police officer who told me I couldn't do much but take him to civil court. This just happened an hour ago in Brickell, Miami. I would like to get my hands on this guy but realize it would only lead to more problems.

He's a well dressed, fast speaking little Italian guy with glasses.

He let me know he had more to sell so look out for this guy. Said his name was Paulo.

It appears I got "got" by this same guy as well with his sob story and his darn jackets. I wont say how much I gave hime but believe me, he got me good. That was in 2007.

Today, in 2011, some smooth talking Italian with some Armani watches approached me with the same modus operandi, (he attended event in Miami, had extra goods, rental car, flight back to Italy, didnt want to pay taxes on extra goods, etc) However, you can only fool me once.

I acted like I was going to buy the watches and even went and pulled money from the ATM as he stood closeby. He saw the money in my hand, he was salavating at the sight.

But instead of buying the watches, I took the car key from his hands and locked the doors to his Mercedes and called the police on him.

He was scared shitless and had a panicked look on his as he stood outside his car with nowhere to go.

The scammer got scammed today. However the police said they couldn't do much since to him since no transaction (crime) has taken place. His name is Luigi. I got a picture of him too. Payback!!

RGA Armani Clothing - Fake

Nashville, Tennessee 10 comments

A friend called me last night very excited that he had been approached by this Italian guy asking for directions to the airport. The man said he was in town to show some samples and was headed back to Italy.

He said he wanted some US currency to make some purchases in the duty free shop before he left the states. Anyway he gave a business card, my friend rushed to the ATM and got the money and bought 3 jackets 1 leather, 2 fabric. I went over to look at them and immediately knew they weren't Armani. Anyone who has owned an Armani Suite or Jacket would recognize the lack of quality in these products without even trying them on.

I believe my friend payed $300.00 for all three. He felt that he had gotten a bargain. We went on line and discovered this website and several articals stating that the line was fake. I didn't see the word Armani on any of the products that he bought.

I have to admit the black leather drivers coat looked nice. But it still lacked the quality you would expect of a fine leather product, let alone an Armani product.

These guys are apparently on the move. I just got worked in Sacramento, CA by the same scam.

They sold me 3 "Armani" jackets for $120. The jacketa are not that bad, but definitely not Aramani. There were 2 of them, one supposedly the model for the Jackets, they had a booklet with the model in them and everything.

They were in a White Nissan Armada.

Very good scammers. You will reap what you sow.

Just got busted by this guy in NY last friday. He pulled on the side of the road, asking me for the airport.

So I gave him the direction. Then he asked me what was my size, I answered that I didn't know then he said that I was certainly an L...whatever with his italian accent he continue to chat and said that he was going to the airport and was working for armani and wanted to offer a Play station for his son. I said I didn't have much money so I was not interested. Anyway we continued to talk, he told me he was often travelling from Milano to Ny for fashion weeks and that he got those samples..

and at the end I really wanted him to offer this playstation to his son, so I answered that why not, three armani Jacket for 300$ that's not bad, so I jump in his grey suv, we've been to the bank, I gave him the 300$, he left. That was next to the apple store in manhattan.Conclusion: This guy is really good I traveled all over the world and never fell for one of those repoff, there's always a detail that tells me that there's something wrong, this time i didn't even smelled the jacket to check if it was real leather...I trusted him.

Anyway 300 bucks that's not the end of the world and I got three jacket. Hope he really bought a playstation to his son..haha

Description: 40 year old man with a little bit of grey hair, short hair, dressing casual good, Italian accent, apparently driving in a rented car, having a green jacket on the passenger side, showing his items in a fake armani bag, showing the items from the car window and using a lighter to show how good the quality is, asking his way to the airport, not from NY while he has a map of Manhattan, wearing a watch with a black face (italian brand), smoking cigarettes, apparently he knew were the armani store is in Manhattan and the chase bank next to it, asking where you are from, if you're italian or not (trying to make you feel comfortable), even if he does repoff at the end he would seem like a nice person to go and have a beer with hehehe !

It is obviously a group, not a guy. I live in Henderson, NVMy husband just came home telling the same story and that he had deopped $300 for 5-6 jackets.

I could smell them and look at them and know they are fake. I mean they are not bad, but they are not Armani, that is for sure.

RGA Armani - Same story in Brussels with REA Armani guy

I was also approached by an Italian today on parking lot in Zaventem. I went to his car and he presented plenty of suits and leather jackets to me.

Finally I was suspicious and went away without buying anything. My intuition told me this guy had prepared a full story with 'being in a hurry for the airport' and 'luggage cost would be to high, I need to get rid of samples I received' and 'Armani samples he received in the Brussels Hilton hotel'.

So finally, when I read this site, I am happy I didn't buy anything and I am happy I followed my intuition.

Advise: follow your intuition! Cheers Kurt

All started while starting my shift at work, I decided to run across the street to grab my self some snacks, only had a couple of minutes to make that run but on my way crossing the street out of no where their was a gentleman that was calling me, so i decided to look back to see who it was and i ended going back to see why he was calling me for. after i approach the fake Italian tourist supposedly i thought he need me for some directions, but it was the opposite he was trying to make some money because his dad gave him some merchandise and it was to much for him to travel with.

the supposedly Italian tourist said he only got couple of hours for him to leave out of the country back to Italy telling me that he needs couple of dollars before he leaves and hes not asking for much trying to sell me couple of leathers an feathers jackets and 2 suits asking for 700 dollars i told him i don't have time but he had a suit that looked so nice that i said i need to get that so i told him ill give you 200 dollars for it, thinking that R.E.A was some new collection from Armani and i ended up buying it.

after a couple of minutes that i purchased the suit from the Italian such call tourist, i thought about it an said wait of minute i just made a mistake, but it was to late because he was already gone and i didn't take his license plate number down that's another mistake, also all i remember is the Italian such call a tourist was at least 5'7 or 5'8 tall if I'm not mistaken, at the time he seem me was about 2:53 pm 09/22/2010, it took place in front of the CBS News building main entrance(524 w 57Th st)in Manhattan, NY. but moving on now is the past, i hope that everyone knows that buying stuff in the street could lead to something not appropriate. I hope that the guy stop and learn his lesson before is to late and God to forgive him because karma gets to you..

RGA Armani - Fake Armani reportage Rea Jackets

Dublin, Dublin 23 comments

Fake-Reportage REA Collection Leather Jacket: I was gardening in front of my home in South Dublin this Saturday morning 31 July 2010. An Silver Audi rental car driven my a Continental European who said he was Italian from Milano stopped.

The driver (single occupant) asked for directions to the M50 motorway to the Airport. Allegedly returning from a visit to Brown Thomas (an up-market department store) in the City Centre, he then produced 3 sample leather jackets which he wanted to dispose of before traveling home. He valued them about €750 to €850 per item and offered me the three for €387 his car hire costs. Showed me Passport and car hire company receipt.

I fitted on one and offered €200 to take the three off his hands and we settled for €220. I thought my adult sons or friends can have the others. He departed. On returning to the house I Googled Reportage Rea name to discover identical scams elsewhere.

The car driver was mid 40s, bald with spectacles and limited but adequate English. Be warned.

From Nannawading ,Victoria.

In a very busy afternoon gone for a short trip to an electronic shop to buy a TV antenna . As soon I locked my car , driver of the just parked car just right of my car asked me to give him direction to go to airport.

He showed me a very torn full Australian map ,it was very impossible to show him streets in that map.

I was very kind and patient and agreeable to show him , while drawing direction,looking for papers in glove box of his two door rental car without GPS .he seemed very interested and very great full. He was at his mid thirties, fair complexion well dressed.

I started walking , he asked my name and profession, learning that, he told me that his mother is of same profession and he became interested in me ,asked me to hang on , he came out of his car and formally introduced him and told he is designer for ARAMANI ,came to Westfield , Doncaster to launch new product.

He has some left over,does not want to take back as he don,t want to pay tax twice as sample product. By natuture I am skeptical and greed less,still sort of became hypnotised and did what he said ,he asked me to open the boot and himself put two ARAMANI paper sac into my boot. I courteously (retrospectively stupidly)asked him do you want any thing from me ?

Then he became very emotional and said do you any children ? I said yes, then with near sobbed eyes told today is my son's birthday, I am not with him he wanted me to take an apple computer , I checked the price which is A$1200. I became emotional and wanted to help him ,I asked him how much you have ?you take your cloths back , still I will help you let us go inside the shop. As I mentioned I was in a hurry , wanted to help him and go.

he said I will buy from airport tax free shop. I gave him A$500, he said he will still have a short fall of three hundred, I had only A$100 left, I gave him that as well , and get on with my day's work . I forgot the whole thing , finally at night chatting with my wife ,told about my genorisity ,she wanted to see them rather then listening ,by the time I went to garage to bring the packets from car in the mean time she googled reportage REA jackets, and out of my extreme surprise showed that this is part of international scams , and all reported on this page. They are from all over the western world, Europe,USA,Canada .

Now I am reporting from Australia. Nearly with similar story everywhere. I wonder how they pick up clients, I am sure if my wife would be with me she would be rude to this very genleman stranger ,which I could not.

But I learned at the cost of my humane nature,never believe any stranger. Also , still I think how people like me would suspect this behaviour as a big scam 23 rd June 2015

I like a fool I ate your story!

and asked for money only to fill your tank Gazoline but I only had 100 euros in my wallet and told him that I can give only 70 so I said I did not lost much but this country is full of hustlers be careful when you come to paris! and also be careful with those guys who pick up a ring and tells you it's yours there are two that made me the same story but failed me.

Looks like we may make a very, very generous donation to the local charity shop! Not sure what they are made of but smell like fresh meat!!

I am from South Africa. A friendly Italian male stopped me in a rented car outside my bank.

He said he is in SA, for soccer world cup business. He brought clothing to sell and is going back to Italy and cannot take them back as he has to pay tax. He showed me a photostat page containing a summary of the list of clothings and the prices in Euro's. He was prepared to give me all six jackets for the price of one jacket.

I only needed to give him 600 Euros. I was scammed and bought two jackets for and equivalent of 230 Euros.
