Last November I bought a used Chanel J12 with diamond bezel for $6500 from an eBay seller and I pay via Paypal (with my Amex card). I just found out today that the watch is a fake! Last week I found out a crack on the watch so I brought it into the boutique to get it repaired, only to find out that it's a fake! Silly me! I totally believed the seller since she and I talked on the phone and traded a few emails before purchasing the watch directly with a BIN. She was really nice and was also into purchasing and selling big items online, so I believed her. We didn't go thru the whole auction thing via eBay but I did pay her w/ Paypal. But since I didn't get the watch authenticated right away (since I never thought that it could be a fake), I've passed the 45 day claim period and I just called Paypal and they said there's nothing they can do My gosh, this is one really expensive lesson that I can't afford...and my husband is even more devestated, because it was a gift from him and he just realized that he'd bought me a fake. We're both so sad Has this happen to anyone else before? What did you and what happened afterwards?
