Thanks for the pics. I still haven't got my money back. No recourse through my bank either.... She's now pretending she's not getting my ebay messages in our dispute and claiming she wants to refund my money, but needs me to send the bag back first. Oh, she also suddenly doesn't know how to use paypal to transfer the funds back. She really is a pro at this, b/c she acts cooperative in written correspondence but has no intention of following through. Ebay has been absoultely unhelpful. They aren't doing anything to assit me, other than suggesting that i continue to work towards a resolution with the seller (aka bang my head against a brick wall)! By the way, do NOT purchase anything from from this ebay seller: Luigi20_5 She's a con-artist!
There are many places to purchase fakes online, including eBay. One shop selling replicas online says "some of their best customers are (power) sellers on eBay". That particular shop carried a replica IF Buried Treasure Audra for $225.00. My daughter lost interest in the bag and in eBay after her discovery.
I emailed them questioning its authenticity and got this:
Yes, it is the same exact one that is listed on that Zappos site. It has never been used, however I do not have certificate of authentisity because it did not come with one. BUT, I did call Isabella Fiore HQ when I won the item off of ebay (I won two which is why I am selling this one)to ask them questions about its authenticity and it passed. It is a beautym, and defiantely authentic. It also comes with the Isabella white sak.
I posted it with a starting bid of only $32, however I really need to get at least $400 for it to cover what I paid. If you would like to purchase it for $400, I can end the bid early, otherwise I have to see what high bid comes in. I am in BH, so depending on where you are located, I can get it to you before xmas. I am a very honest bus. owner, professional, etc. So no worries about a flakey transaction. Let me know your thoughts...I'm sure your GF would be just thrilled to have it :-)
You can't ask a fake seller if an item is authentic and expect a honest answer (sorry!) The lady I bought my fake buried trasure wallet from insisted it was from Saks off 5th. Then when I returned it, she said she was taking it back to find out if it was fake and she was certain it was real and how could saks sellher a fake and yada... yada.... yada.... NOW she has the wallet up for auction with a qty of THREE available. Big liar.
The first one is definitely a fake. The second one looks real because of the airbrushing around the print but I'm not 100% sure
I bought my girlfriend the IF Buried Treasure hobo and wallet for christmas from 2 different sellers. I was able to find an authentic bag, but when I got the wallet, it just didn't seem the same quality as the bag. The color of the tattoo was a bit more orange, and the name was a hair fuzzy. The wallet itself was a bit lighter in color and the leather didn't seem the same quality as the bag, neither did the chain that's attached to the zipper. Here is the original auction.
Please let me know if I got ripped off so I can take the appropriate action.
