Got scammed in Rydalmere today. Standing at the back of my office on the phone, guy pulls up and asks if I spoke Italian... When I told him I couldn't he's english suddenly got much better.. Same story as in other reports, "just finished a fashion show at the convention centre, had to fly back to Italy that night and did not want to take the stock with him as he did not want to pay the taxes"> Trust me this guy is smooth!! I am a very street smart person and I don't believe I have ever been scammed before but this guy nailed me...
The story was he wanted $2000 for one suit and he would give me three leather jackets for free, we negotiated (as you do) and the deal ended up at three suits and eight leather jackets (everything he had) for $1800. I thought I had got him at that stage.. This guy had answers for everything, I asked him whose car it was? he showed me the euro car key ring. I asked him what airline he was flying, he pulled out plane tickets and a door card for the IBIS hotel. He was good, very good.
He was driving a small silver 4WD rego AL 60 D0 and if you are reading this "Marco" following your success I'm not unhappy about the deal, I quite like all the jackets and the suits but becareful because one day you will cross my path again and I will give you a free flight back to Italy.
