***A Place for the Fakes***

  1. I think i might bought the fake one from eBay...;( Where do i go for authentication?
     
  2. Please report these two (bad!) fakes, both from high feedback user names. It appears to be the same person/company behind both listings. One has bids already.

  3. I'm new to Balenciaga, but looking closely at the hardware and how the leather is and the stitching, it looks fake. Another thing I noticed that screams SCAM is at the bottom of the page, the buyer indicates that they will be leaving abroad for a year and they leave in two weeks. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BALENCIAGA-1895-Lambskin-Giant-City-Charbon-Motorcycle-Bag-White-Leather-RARE-/320969590716?_trksid=p4340.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222002%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D11%26meid%3D1704532391075434529%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D1005%26rk%3D5%26

    Report if this is fake and/or a scam!!
     
  4. I just started looking at Bals in eBay and I have no skills... I can't tell a fake for sure... and I own 2 authentic ones (from Barneys and Bal directly). I thought it would be easier to pick out the fakes but now I am totally scared off from buying one online.
