    this is confirmed AAA fake.

    I have not paid (thankfully)...how do I get out of this auction? The auction doesn't mention "authenticity" (i know - I got excited...bad me).

    but I am NOT paying for this bag. if i have to take a NPB/neg, that's fine...
     
  2. It doesn't have to mention authenticity the listing header says
    coach handbag signature reversible tote 10125 FREE SH


    Tell her that you have posted the bag and it was confirmed a fake and you would like to agree to a mutual agreement to not complete the auction. Maybe she doesn't know it is not real. See what she says... You can always report the auction to eBay as a fake.
     
  3. ^^thank you! I appreciate your response!
     
  4. Yeah, I don't think it's real. I have a Signature Stripe bag in with blue, and the creed is made of natural colored vachetta leather (not a color matching the trim). And the number on the creed has a ten number/letter combo. However, I've seen them in colors matching the trim also. Also, my "C's" don't line up to look like 'O's" on the outer seam.

    This is the same fake bag- only in brown. Same leather price tag.

    It also has the exact same four-five number serial code on the creed. And the "C's" line up to look like "O's" on the outer seam too. Also, the stitches on the creed (and a few other places) slant inwards- Coach stitching is perfectly straight.

    Tell her that.

    It looks like a really good fake, which is pretty scary if you ask me.
     
  5. Your seller knows the bag is fake. I am hoping you get enough people to report it that it will be pulled.
     
  6. sorry...the other thread got really long...

    the seller got back to me...heheh

    this was my email to her:
    and her reply:

    lol...oookay.

    so I have an email from eBay "Unpaid item mutual agreement" (i'm new with this - so help me out here"

    my options are
    1. I agreed not to complete this transaction and/or return the item.
    The seller will be eligible for a refund of their eBay fees.

    2. We have not made an agreement to cancel this transaction.
    The seller will NOT be eligible for a refund of their eBay fees.

    I don't want to pay her eBay fees for a fake bag! Should I hold off on responding to this and see if the auction gets pulled? There is a place for me to enter comments...can I put in there that the bag is a fake and violates eBay standards? Does some "person" actually review these things?

    I don't plan on responding to her email...or do you think i should?

  8. I'd go with option #1. It sounds like she did agree not to complete the transaction. You don't have to pay her fees. Those are the fees that ebay charges the seller when an auction closes based on the item's selling price. Ebay will simply credit them back to the seller as if her item never sold.
     
  9. oh, so *I* don't have to actually pay these fees?

    duh...dunno why I thought that! LOL - thanks for clearing that up! (I've never sold on eBay...to all you that do...bless your hearts...)

    thanks!
     
  10. No, you definitely don't have to pay those fees (I've been ebaying for 8 years).
    I would just agree to mutually end the transaction and be done with it. She probably won't leave negative feedback in fear of you doing the same.
     
  11. :tup:

    excellent. thank you SO MUCH!

    should I leave any comments when I respond to the dispute?
     
  12. ^Exactly -- choose option one and be done with it. That seller is a complete PITA. SHE is the one who needs to do her research, as it is against eBay policy to list something if you do not know the authenticity.

    http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/authenticity-disclaimers.html

    "Sellers may not disclaim knowledge of, or responsibility for, the authenticity or legality of the items offered in their listings. Sellers should take steps to ensure that their items are authentic before listing them on eBay. If a seller cannot verify the authenticity of an item, the seller is not permitted to list it."
     
  13. You're welcome! :yes:
     
  14. should I leave any comments with my response? along the lines of the bag being fake?
     
  15. ** Never mind all...the ladies on the coach board have helped me out.

    thank YOU all for your help as well!
