fakes make me so angry. makes me want to message the seller and call them out on their bluff. do you think most sellers know that they are fakes? geez people are actually buying them for ridiculous amounts of money... beejerry that indy went for $950 for a FAKE! omG. i need to lay down... i'm getting flustered. this is a sensitive subject for me because i have been duped before. tear.
ps- beejerry, what do you mean by the receipt has been sanitized?
As a seller, I would love it if someone would email me and tell me if one of my items is a fake. I sell on Ebay as a hobby and have sold 156 items so far. If I don't feel certain something is authentic, I get it authenticated. Well folks, those replica producers are getting really good-and I mean they are GOOD! I've had 2 returns for fake items and one of them was authentic. The second one turned out to be a really good fake. Needless to say, it would have spared both my buyer and me a lot of grief had I known it was a fake.
My point is there are sellers, as myself, who sell designer items on Ebay who really are not aware one of their items is a fake. 1 in 156 items is 1 too many for me. Now I really am resentful of those who spend their time producing knock-off items!
I sell as a hobby so it's not my bread and butter but I would bet most sellers know darn well they are selling fakes. Where did I buy the fake? Ebay. When I contacted the seller with the 14 day return policy I received no reply. 3 emails and nothing back from her.
The worst Gucci fake I saw was in a goodwill thrift store where someone had taped (not even glued) a Gucci tag on a horrendous flowery-patterned bag. I laughed when I saw it and removed the tag and threw it away. Does this count?
Wow I just went through like 15 pages of this thread and I cant believe how good some of the fakes are :( I seriously could not tell with many of them, makes me appreciate the authenticators on this site even more, you guys deserve a medal!
