Rimowa needed in the UK (scam website offering 80 discount?)

Hi all,

I'm trying to get hold of some Rimowa luggage, and have used koffer24 in the past.

However, I came across www.reedsa.com earlier today, and their pricing seems unreal - and I'm now trying to decide whether my gut feeling is correct.

The website has a phone number, which links to Bergman Luggage, but I haven't given them a call yet to ask if they're aware of reedsa.

The WHOIS info shows a godaddy website, but so do many websites.

Does anyone have any thoughts, and more importantly suggestions of how to get some sensibly priced Rimowa cases in the UK?

Safe travels,

M

I would not purchase from this website.

The max discount I have seen authorized or former-authorized dealers was 20% off MSRP with a max discount of 45% less VAT and paid in cash.

If it sound too good to be true...

What models are you looking for?

I've been looking for a large Essential Lite case (just waiting for my friend to let me know what size she wants, but likely either the 67cm or 78cm.

It would be interesting to call. My guess would be they've never heard of reedsa.com or they'll tell you it's a spoof site.
