  1. Hi dekage1:

    Please ask the seller for better pictures (no bad quality blackberry pics) of:
    Front with the pockets closed
    Nameplate
    The inside and a closeup of the inner label
    Zipper pull of the inside pocket (and the back of the zipper pull)
    Code tag (it's made of leather and sewn inside the inner pocket-hard to find but should be there)
    Back of the bag
     
  2. Thanks so much...especially for educating me as to what to ask for :biggrin:. I just sent off the email to the seller with the request. Fingers crossed!

    Hi!
    Seller wrote back that she's traveling but would send additional pics early next week, so will see if she follows through. Will repost if I get the pics but while hopeful, it all feels a bit off...
     
  4. I'll move this thread to our new Valentino forum :yes:
     
  5. Thanks Nat! :smile:
     

  6. Yoogiscloset is extremely reputable. They have a 30 day return policy. I have purchased Valentino from them before, the bag will be exactly as described. The photos of course look authentic to me.
     
  7. Thank you :smile:)
     
  8. Hello,

    Good evening, expert.

    I was so foolish to buy this Valentino without asking for your advice first. I bought it with my I-pone, so, the pics were not as clear. I received the bag today, and I am sure it is fake. I asked the seller for a refund, but, I haven't heard from her yet. She is however a seller with great feedbacks.

    Please help me to authenticate it. Thank you so much.

  9. These pics are a bit blurry and not close-up enough. Can you post an upclose clear pic of the inside label, the outside Valentino plaque, and see if there is a serial number inside the inner zip pocket.
    Those serial numbers can be hard to find, but it should be there. MGA, am I missing anything?
     
  10. Also clear pictures of the base and the front would be good.
     
  11. Hello LavelLover81,

    Thank you. I finally got the seller to agree for return and refund. I have already sent off the bag to post office.
    A fake bag gave me bad vibes, so, I want it to be gone.
     
  12. Good for you! Feel free to have any future items authenticated here :biggrin:
