Bro, how much did you pay??? I thought this type of scam should've died by now since everyone pretty much knows about it.

Leather coat scam returns to North Vancouver

similar description of the guy here
He didn't do anything illegal. You purchased something from him at the price you both agreed on. So what would the cops do? Make him give you a refund?

Unless the stuff was counterfiet you probably wouldn't have a case.

You're the one that got greedy for the deal and it blinded you from proper judgement (hence buying 4). You paid $60/jacket. It really wasn't bad. Real corporations rip us off charging $1000 for the "REAL" thing. If it looks nice then rock the jacket. Unless it's like fake monogram gucci, the real thing is ugly, a fake of the real thing is worse. Just my opinion.

What kind of jackets did he sell you?

In the end, you paid $60 for 4 jackets that at the very least, look good enough (fashion wise) for you to have made the purchase.

Unless you were planning to buy cheap and then resell them for profit.
I don't think you really got the worst of it.

In fact, I would consider you got a steal.
I know it's my personal opinion, but I think people who splash big money on designer brands are idiots, unless they're really loaded.

I always say, unless that Armani, Gucci, LV, etc stuff is bullet proof, I don't see why the stuff are marked up that much higher.
Design wise, they might be better, but not always. And material, well, like I said, unless it's bullet proof, it doesn't justify it's huge price.

Anyway, I'm on the assumption your jackets don't dissolve under rain water, so who cares.
$60 for a jacket that looks legit is not a bad deal considering even "non-BS italian designer brand" jackets now a days cost more than that.

When I encountered this scam, the guy was trying to sell me 2 jackets for $1000.
I declined nicely at first, and then he tried to knock the price down to $750. I eventually told him to gtfo once I had enough.

I'd buy the women's one for my mom but medium is way too big for her. Good luck with your sale.

Going to LOL so hard if another RS member (who misses this thread)
buys one and then makes a thread about some guy on CL ripping him off with fake Armani jackets.

Uh....are these jackets fake? Not sure what EA Collection is, but you shouldn't advertise them as the real thing. At least mention they are replicas. You're basically doing the same thing the Italian did to you to a potential buyer.

The funny thing is these jackets were probably made in the exact same factory in China, India, or Turkey. Only difference is usually the tag that's sewn on them.

So OP got a $60 jacket for $60. It's the true idiots who pay $1200 for a $60 jacket.

My dad bought 4 for 100 back like 2 years ago
He didn't even know what armani was. He was happy he paid 25 for a jacket
I remember seeing them, they were pretty good quality for what my dad paid for
But I refused to wear it for personal reasons and the fact they were all over sized
My grand parents ended up taking them back to Korea bahaha
Anyways $60 for a jacket is price of a cheap pleather jacket in Vancouver so oh wells.
