    Default Beware of Aenri Swissa!!!

    Aenri Swissa is a criminal that poses as legitimate handbag designer. Aenri Swissa was convicted in Miami, FL for selling counterfeit rolexes in 1999 and his store was busted for selling counterfeit bags, sun glasses, and watches in 2005. His 19 year old daughter took the fall for the store, but he was the owner. Aenri claims that he has a career with famous companies like Coach and Pierre Cardin. Does a man with a distinguished designing career sell counterfeit watches at a flea market? He involved his own daughter in his illegal business. According to newspaper articles his daughter was facing 10 years in prison and although she didn't go to prison she did get convicted, and does have a record. She got busted again in 2009 for petit theft...I can't blame her when it seems that her father taught her to be a criminal. I imagine that she took the fall for him in 2005so he wouldn't get a felony for getting busted a second time.

    When Aenri was the head designer and plant manager in the Dominican Republic for Zina Eva. I witnessed Aenri degrade the employees to their faces with racist statements, calling them morons, liars, and thieves. There are more serious abuses, such as sexual harassment, and when I reported these abuses to Zina I was ignored and no action was taken to halt the abuse.

    He is currently advertising his services on the internet as a designer of leather goods. Before doing any business with this man do a thorough background check, in the Miami area, and you will find that he is a criminal.

    FAKE DESIGNER GOODS SEIZED

    Police arrested an employee at a store they said was passing off counterfeit designer merchandise as authentic.

    The price seemed too good to be true: $100 for three purses that sported labels like Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton.

    As it turns out, Hollywood police say, it was too good to be true.

    The labels on the handbags were not from high-end designers, but rather from a little room at Bag Beyond, a family-run business at the Hollywood Mall, investigators said.

    Police arrested an employee at the store on Wednesday, 19-year-old Nicole Swissa, on charges of selling counterfeit goods and possessing or reproducing counterfeit labels.

    Hollywood police Detective Carlos Negrón said the investigation started about three weeks ago when representatives from the companies that hold the trademarks as well as citizens alerted them that phony designer goods were being sold at the store.

    An undercover detective visited the store and went back Wednesday, buying three purses. The bags were verified as fakes by representatives of the manu! facturers, and Swissa, of Hallandale Beach, was arrested.

    She was released on $2,000 bond the same day.

    Police seized between 2,000 and 3,000 counterfeit products, including watches, bags and sunglasses, which they valued at $300,000.

    Negrón said some of the goods looked very authentic, but others had sloppy stitching and labeling.

    Investigators were still trying to find out who supplied the bags to the company, which police said is owned by Swissa's father, Aenri Swissa. Neither Nicole nor Aenri Swissa could be reached by phone Thursday.

    Hollywood Mall, 3251 Hollywood Boulevard, is across the street from the city's police department.

    4 CHARGED IN SALE OF PHONY ROLEXES WATCHES WERE BOUGHT AT FLEA MARKET

    Author: AJOWA NZINGA IFATEYO, Herald Staff Writer

    Article Text:

    Last Sunday morning, three people approached vendors at the Opa-locka/Hialeah Flea Market and asked for Rolex watches. The vendors produced what looked like the expensive name-brand watches and sold them for $20 to $50. Then they were arrested for selling phony Rolexes.

    Opa-locka police arrested Hai Dong Yu, 29, and Cai Na Chen, 20, of 13841 SW 90th Ave., Liv Xian Zhu, 30, who did not give an address, and Aenri Swissa, 47, of 19390 NW 82nd St., and charged them with selling goods with counterfeit trademarks. Zhu and Chen were charged with felonies because the value of their goods was over $1,000.

    But it is not clear what role the two men and one woman who asked for the watches played: all apparently work for Nautilus Investigations, 8701 SW 128th St.

    Nautilus isn't saying.

    ``I have nothing to say and neither does any of the other gentlemen,'' Richard Wieder said on Friday.

    Wieder is listed on the arrest form as a ``witness'' who approached Yu and bought a phony Rolex for $50. Yu, whose permanent address is listed on the police report as Flushing, N.Y., had 118 women's watches and 34 men's watches, which were impounded. A woman who answered the phone at the address listed on the report as his residence said she knew no one by that name.

    Opa-locka police spokesman Tony Lacks said the men were probably Rolex copyright infringement investigators.

    Rolex copyright infringement attorney Brian Brokate could not be reached for comment.

    Scott Miller, manager for the Opa-locka/Hialeah Flea Market, said the market has more than 800 booths and he did not know of any sales of counterfeit Rolex watches.

    ``We don't condone this type of illegal activity and we cooperate fully with the authorities,'' Miller said.

    State Attorney office spokesman Don Ungurait said people who sell counterfeit goods steal twice.

    ``It's essentially stealing from both the manufacturer of the legitimate items and the purchasers who thought they were paying for the real thing,'' he said. ``These will be prosecuted.''

    One of those charged said the arrest was ridiculous.

    ``People are not stupid,'' said Swissa, who had three watches in his possession at the time of arrest. ``A Rolex doesn't cost $5.''

    If you read the previous article you will see that Aenri has no remorse, not even to the police that arrested him. He was 47 years old when arrested in the previous article, then his store got busted 6 years later for the same thing.

    He also has many aliases, such as Henry, Andres, and various different spellings of his first and last name.

    The following story is from several South Florida newspapers:

    You can't get real Gucci purses without paying real Gucci prices.

    That's the lesson learned from an undercover Hollywood police sting Wednesday that netted 2,000 to 3,000 counterfeit purses, wallets and bags -- and one arrest.

    And detectives didn't have to look far for the bogus goods: They found the fakes in a store across the street from the Hollywood police department.

    Three weeks ago police received complaints from shoppers and manufactures that Bag Beyond in the Hollywood Mall was selling counterfeit goods.

    An undercover officer went to the shop and spent $100 on purses that normally cost between $400 and $600, according to police spokesman Det. Carlos NegrM-sn.

    After police confirmed that the purses were brand-name fakes, officers arrested the store manager, Nicole Swissa, 19, of Hallandale, and searched the premises.

    Swissa faces one count of vending counterfeit goods and one count of possessing counterfeits, third-degree felonies each punishable by a maximum of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

    Bag Beyond is owned by Swissa's father, Aenri Swissa, 53, NegrM-sn said.

    Aenri Swissa has not been charged but the investigation is ongoing.

    Nicole Swissa was released on $2,000 bail.
