Okay, with chemlex's encouragement I did go to eBay and bought one of the items that she had recommended yesterday. (I'm stilll nervous about fakes though. I'm still new to the purse obbession thing.) Several have mentioned getting fabulous bags from eBay, and eBay itself can be a little addictive. I guess I just want the purse experts to tell me that YES the purses are authentic with the power sellers, all possitive comments, have pictures of the actual bag, serial # card card etc and they state 100% authentic or genuine. After all of this, can they still be lying? How can they sell things much cheaper than at the stores? Last question, do any of the fake bags out there look and feel real enough to fool you if you did only have access to pictures of the real thing and do any of the fakes also have fake serial number, care card and dust bags too? Example, can there really be a black leather and a squirrel fendi spy up for grabs as I thought they were impossible to get and you had to be on a wait list. Thanks so much for any and all advise, I'm sure that there are others wondering the same thing too.
