I had listed on eBay a LV bag. The tag says "Made in USA". I obviously took all of the important pictures to prove the bag was authentic. After the auction ended, I get this question from someone on eBay: Just curious:If it is authenic Louis Vuitton, why does it say made in the USA? My authentic Alma bag says made in France down at the bottom on the side. I responded back that bags were made in France, Spain, and the US. I suggested she google LV to get more information on the brand, etc. This is the response she gave me: Thank you for your quick response. I have called the LV store and they assured me that they do not manufacture any LV items in the US. They do however, make small items in spain. Your suggestion to google was excellant. I found that 90% of the LV sold on eBay is fake. I also found out that it is just as illegal to buy as it is to sell. I have ordered my daughters wallet on the LV website as you can now order directly. Thank you for your time I was dumb founded!! I try to "educate" someone is a nice way, and I get this snippy email back. How rude was that???
