just found this on eBay. Can anyone let me know if this is a fake? 120195184960. Thanks ...Kim
Welcome! Please post your question in the Louis Vuitton section of this site. Here's a link:
Too late it ended. But I believe it was fake anyway.
why did you believe it was fake? my Cabas Piano has a ring around the date code and I bought that directly from Louis vuitton in Westchester. Please let me know. My sister bought this bag I wrote about. Thanks
My suspicions don't have anything to do with the ring around the date code. First, the price of $220 is extraordinarily low for a Speedy 30 in that condition. The fact that the seller let it go for that low is suspicious. Also the date code ends in a 5, which refers to 2005, and this bag has NO patina. Unless it's been in an airtight closet for the past 2+ years, there's no way it would be this light. Also, the seller doesn't provide any pictures of the date code itself nor the heat stamp that shows where it's made, which is pretty suspect.
I'd suggest that you get pictures of the date code and heat stamp before you pay, or wait until you get the bag and see what it looks like. Don't pay with existing paypal funds; pay with a credit card. It's the safest way to conduct the transaction in case you get a fake.
Lorihmatthews is absolutely right. It's definitely fake. The shape is wrong among other things. Hope your sis hasn't paid...
Yes, she paid for it...I am so mad. The seller has not contacted her either. I am going to tell her to start a claim with paypal. Wish her luck! Thanks for all your help!
