i thought we all need a bit of ressuring and encouragement... one of our PF gals posted an auction with a white gaucho bag to authenticate - we couldnt make up our minds so i asked the seller for more pics. I received them almost straight away and we were able to say it was a fakey fake so i worte back to the seller explaining why i doubt the authenticity and wont purchase the bag. He ended the auction straight away and contacted the owner ( he has a consignment business). I warned him about fake receipts being sold and gave him a link to our Forum ( where we authenticated the bag ). That is the reply i got : "Thank you very much for the information you gave us. We contacted the consignor and she confirmed an eBay purchase. We withdrew the listing and now will check further. If I register with Forum can they authenthicate for us? Thanks" i just think its a breath of fresh air to deal with an honest person...adding him to my favourite sellers now !
