Beware of two "Italians" in a gold current-gen Ford Escape, license CCCT 507

Two "Italian" guys drove up with heavy accents and made up a story of how they're going back to Italy have all this fancy perfume that they have to leave behind and then try to get you to buy 1 and they give you 6 free or something like that.

I tried entertaining them to see how far they'd go but it didn't reveal much. Watch out for their scam.

License plate: CCCT 507
Vehicle: Gold/Beige Ford Escape

So common...my husband has been approached multiple times in Mississauga although he has always been offered designer suits at a deep discount and they pull out their Italian passport as if it would help their fake story ... Different vehicle/people, etc but same type of scam
When your mind says give up, hope whispers "one more try"

I met this Italian dude who had made up a long story. In the end he was willing to give me 2 Armani jackets if I bought an iPad for his wife. Some sob story. Islington and Queensway.

Should've bought his wife an Epad or an Opad, or some other knockoff pad Face With Tears Of Joy

I got the suit offer, free. I knew it was all BS and was waiting for the catch.

He stopped me asking for directions to the airport, then he went on about how he owns a business yada yada and basically ask me for $300 to help pay his Hyundai Santa Fe lease.


I'm more interested, WTF falls for these MoFo.
