When we were in Italy last year, there were fake vendors EVERYWHERE. When we were getting ready to travel, I read somewhere that being caught with a fake purse was something you could be arrested for! Just now, I was looking online for a Prada bag because I'm in love with it, and up comes the Saks page, then Ioffer, and then a handbag outlet place. The Ioffer site and the handbag outlet site are undoubtedly fake bags, but HOW does an illegal site stay up and running? The bags say "prada", not "rada!" Doesn't someone hunt these down? There has to be a reason it's called "trunk parties" too for fake bags - because they aren't LEGAL!!! Next question is, do these bags FEEL like the real thing? I've been doing a lot of reading on here the last few days and I read a thread about Jimmy Choo bags adn the lady was comparing a fake and an authentic bag and they seem almost identical in all ways. How do the designers make any money if their stuff is faked immediately? For some reason I don't have a problem buying a bag that looks an awful lot LIKE a designer bag, but I don't think it should have ANY designer label... but maybe even having a "similar to designer bag" is unethical too. Anyone else have thoughts?
