Does the Coach outlet sell fakes??

I tried selling a purse I got last year from the Coach factory store on eBay and someone reported it as fake and my auction was yanked.

How could this happen? I have no idea how to tell if the bag is authentic (I'm reading through some threads to try and figure it out) - I just assumed that buying it from a Coach factory store meant that it was authentic.

Can you all tell me what you think in terms of authenticity? If it is in fact not authentic, what should I do? Take it to a Coach store? Unfortunately I've had this bag for over a year and don't think I have the receipt anymore. If the bag ends of being a fake, I'm going to be angry & embarrassed for accidentally posting a fake on eBay.

No they don't sell fakes. That bag is fake because the drilldown shows a way different purse.

Sorry, what's a drill down? I'm new here so I'm not sure what that is.

If it's fake, is there anything I can do? How can this happen? Is it from people returning fake bags for authentic ones?

Are you sure that you got that at Coach outlet and not a 3rd party retailer or somewhere else? That does not look like an authentic product for several reasons, and I do not see the marking that every item sold at an outlet has.

Thanks. I'll let you know what happens. I'm also going to go through my receipt drawer - I"m hoping I still have it.

keep us posted on this! do you still have the tags or anything? There has to be a way to look it up in the computer some how. Did you purchase this or someone else purchase it and say they got it from the factory store?

Oh man, I am such a dolt - thank god I didn't call the store and complain like I was going to. I drove home in a range and ripped through my receipt drawer - I haven't purged my receipts yet. I bought 5 Coach bags that day, 3 came from the Coach factory store and the other 2 came from the Bealls Outlet store - I think the other one I got there is fake too :sad: I did a ton of shopping that day, I don't even remember going to Bealls.

I'm so p*ssed right now at accidentally buying two fakes.. thank goodness the one got removed from eBay but I've been carrying the other bag for the past 5 months. I'm so embarrassed. I'm not sure what do with the two bags now.. I think I'll mail them both to my sister so she can cut them up for an art project. ugh!!

Yep, 2nd bag is definitely fake to *(&$#*$&. I looked up the serial # using the drill down tool posted earlier and mine doesn't match the picture :sad:
