    Please post authenticity questions related to CHANEL in this thread. This thread is a continuation of the previous authentication thread that has been closed for posting: http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel-shopping/authenticate-chanel-read-rules-use-format-post-1-a-731359.html


    Please follow the following rules:

    Before you submit a request for authentication, please search this thread to make sure that the item has not previously been authenticated. This is in order to prevent duplication requests and to make it simpler for people to 'search' for items which may have been posted previously. This is not a thread to ask general questions about CHANEL, please refer to our main CHANEL forum for such information.

    This is a free service, but it is imperative that you help our authenticators by using the following format:

    Item:
    Listing number:
    Seller:
    Link:
    Comments:

    If the bag in question is not on an auction site, please use the following:

    Item Name (if you know it):
    Link (if available):
    Seller:
    Who took the pictures:
    History of the bag:
    Comments:

    Please give us as much information as you can and then attach any pictures (all authentication must include pictures).


    • Authenticators are not required to answer every request and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format.
    • Please note that comments on price and condition are NOT permitted.
    • Please limit your request to one (1) per post; otherwise it gets too confusing keeping them all straight.
    • Do NOT PM an authenticator or moderator to request authentication. Any and all such requests must be posted in this thread.
    • To ensure that additional pictures requested are seen by the authenticators, please utilize the quote feature or provide a link to your original request and response. Failure to do so may result in your query not being answered.
    Should one of your items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials supporting its authenticity.
    Do not handle your disputes with other members in this thread but take your differences to Private Messages. Failure to do so can result in banning.

  3. Could someone please let me know if I left something out on my original post? I'm trying to get an opinion on a scarf I recently found, and I hadn't gotten a response yet.

    Scarf Authentication request

    Thanks so much!
     
  4. Hi, your bag certainly looks authentic to me, but the regular authenticators don't authenticate here for sellers, only buyers. You need to go to their website (it's in burberryprincess' signature line) and for a $5 fee, they'll do it there. I'm assuming the buyer is doing a chargeback or otherwise trying to get $$ refunded? You should also start a thread in the eBay forum on this website--you'll get plenty of support there on what to do.

    P.S., Chanel boutiques don't authenticate bags, so there's hole number one in your buyer's story.

    Good luck!
     

  5. Both shoes, as pictured in the auctions, are authentic.

    FYI for future postings to this thread - please limit your inquiry to no more than 1 request per post. To do otherwise makes it difficult to keep track of the details of more than one item. It requirement is stated on post #1 of this thread. Thank you for understanding.
     
  6. Please authenticate this necklace I got as a gift!
    Thank you !
