What do you think about the reliability of this auction?

  1. I'm not sure how to post the link without it breaking up, but it's:

    Item number: 330148135023

    "Hayden Harnett Deep Purple Prune Gaza Satchel NWT $598"

    I love this bag, but something doesn't seem right? Are there any precautions I should take with a seller with 0 Feedback?

  2. The seller claims not to be new to eBay and that he/she has been selling on a friend's account. Sounds fishy to me. They were probably NARU'd recently. I don't really know too much about Hayden Harnett bags, but the pics on the listing are pretty bad. I think having good pics is really important, especially if you are going to be spending a few hundred dollars on something. From what I can see from the pics, the bag doesn't look new even though it is listed as "new w/tags". I would stay away from this one if I were you, or at least ask the seller for the old eBay ID so that you could check out the feedback. But even that is no guarantee. If you have the extra $200, I would buy this directly from Hayden Harnett. I checked out their website and it is in their current collection. It's ultimately up to you, but I don't get a good feeling about this seller.
