Please post authenticity questions related to CHANEL in this thread. This thread is a continuation of the previous authentication thread that has been closed for posting: http://forum.purseblog.com/chanel-shopping/authenticate-this-chanel-read-the-rules-and-use-890008.html The PurseForum requests that only members with an extensive knowledge of the brand and authenticating who have over 500 posts participate as authenticators in this AT thread. The moderators reserve the right to remove authentications that do not meet these requirements. Please follow the following rules: Before you submit a request for authentication, please search this thread to make sure that the item has not previously been authenticated. This is in order to prevent duplication requests and to make it simpler for people to 'search' for items which may have been posted previously. This is not a thread to ask general questions about CHANEL, please refer to our main CHANEL forum for such information. This is a free service, but it is imperative that you help our authenticators by using the following format: Item: Serial Number: Listing number: Seller: Link: Comments: If the bag in question is not on an auction site, please use the following: Item Name (if you know it): SERIAL NUMBER: Link (if available): Seller: Who took the pictures: History of the bag: Comments: Please give us as much information as you can and then attach any pictures (all authentication must include pictures). All requests must have clear photos (either in listing and/or provided by member requesting the authentication). This will help expedite authentications. Please ask the seller/use the macro setting on your digi (little flower). If you cannot see the details yourself, neither can we. Please provide photos taken with an actual camera. Cell phone pictures rarely provide good details. -Authenticators are not required to answer every request and it is their right to ignore a request that is not in the proper format. -Authenticators are not employed by tPF and do not represent tPF. -Please note that comments on price and condition are NOT permitted. -Please limit your request to one (1) per post; otherwise it gets too confusing keeping them all straight. -Do NOT PM an authenticator or moderator to request authentication. Any and all such requests must be posted in this thread. -To ensure that additional pictures requested are seen by the authenticators, please utilize the quote feature or provide a link to your original request and response. Failure to do so may result in your query not being answered. Should one of your items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials briefly supporting its authenticity. Do not handle your disputes with other members in this thread but take your differences to Private Messages. Failure to do so can result in banning.
