I posted this on the Prada Authenticate thread and thought I'd plop it over here to see what sort of reaction it gets: tPF is a marvelous place for getting info on fakes/knock-off bags. However, I think too often we all fall into the trap of screaming "FAKE" too quickly because we read about it so much on tPF that it frankly seems to make people overly paranoid. I've seen posts where people have questioned authenticity about bags purchased at the most reliable of retailers. I have to wonder if it isn't this "Fake-a- Phobia" syndrome that we all seem to develop from reading all the scares here. Certainly we need to be cautious when ordering from places like Amazon, Overstock and similar places whose primary product isn't designer goods, but still we need to keep a level head too. Ultimately we just need to know our product, use some common sense and take a deep breath instead of thinking that everyone selling designer bags is out to rip us off.
