I know this may belong in a different subforum...

But I think every once in a while our dear members need a wake up call on the new & improved fakes. Here's one for you all.

It could be an authentic maxi, right? I don't think fakes have made the hologram stickers that accurate yet. I could see that its fake from a mile away if it's supposed to be a jumbo (weird angle). No exaggerations here; it's all in the exterior especially if that is supposed to be a jumbo. Although the lining does look better for an alleged faux.

To me, the outside of the bag looks really really off. There is just something about it.

Thegraceful1 is right, the font on sticker is off and the CHANEL stamp is not correct neither.

This is fake by the font on the serial number. The scammers are getting better and better at making the hologram sticker look close to the authentic one but still haven't gotten it perfect yet. And also, scammers are making fake maxi, not just the jumbo and medium flaps.

Yeah..agree with the rest...the font on hologram sticker is definitely different from the genuine ones..
Indeed a much improved 'fake' version!!!

WOW. :wtf: If someone told me this was real, I'd believe them. My eye is not as trained as the rest of you. Since it is a fake :smash:, I started looking for flaws...and started thinking...well...the shoulder straps look a little emaciated? Uh...the "made in" stamp looks off...other than that...it looks sooo close to the real thing. OMG. Serious appreciation for our authenticators.

Getting a bag authenticated on TPF is PRICELESS

Well, the items that the seller has sold is cheap. Seems possible that they know that they bag is fake.
