How it works:
- Opening: a well-dressed Italian man approaches while in his car to ask for directions. Next, he claims to be a manager at Giorgio Armani and has excess stock of suits after attending a trade show. He even has fake business cards and a fake passport to show.
- Set-up: to thank you, he offers one to you for a few hundred dollars, claiming it is worth at least a thousand bucks. He claims this will help him reduce duty taxes too. These suits are actually made of sheep hide and PVC and are worth at most $50-$100.
Places to beware:
- Perth: car parks of shopping malls, streets, petrol station, traffic lights
What to do:
- Decline. If it is too good to be true, it is.
