  3. WOW. Crazy stuff. I knew she was up to no good.
     
  4. BTW, where did you see that they posted the associated ebay IDs?
     
  5. Oh no. I wonder how many people bought her returned fakes from the department stores? And then what if they resell them....they wouldn't even think that they had bought a fake!
     
  6. Still a member of TPF, was an active poster. Mods should take notice.
     
  7. Is this the same member who always posted on hermes forum
    Omg
     
  8. I suspect it's pretty common.

    I was waiting in line to purchase something at Macy's one time and the woman in front of me was returning a very obvious fake bag. (She did have a receipt and "tags" were attached.)

    After the SA gave her the refund and the woman walked away, I asked whether the SA was aware that the bag was fake.

    SA's response was that "if customer has a receipt and tags are attached, we aren't supposed to question it."

    I've also informed managers when I've found fake Coach, Kate Spade, Dooney and Gucci bags at various TJ Maxx and Marshall's stores. Their personnel just isn't trained or knowledgable enough to recognize fakes.

  9. Yup.
     
  10. It was my understanding that as long as a member doesn't violate TPF rules, they aren't banned. So there are certainly scammers here!

    Apricot Summers post here hit the nail on the head:

  11. Terrible
    No wonder she missing for a while
    Used to be very active
     

  12. But you'd think federal-level arraignment might warrant banning, for the safety of the community.

    And the final proof:

    This was mentioned in several of the news stories:
    http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/national-international/Woman-Made-1-Million-Returning-Fake-Designer-Handbags-to-High-End-Department-Stores-381151991.html

    "In at least one case detailed in court records, investigators said Smatsorabudh purchased an authentic ruby red Celine Ring handbag from a department store in October. Within weeks, she returned an inauthentic bag, they said. She then posted a Celine Ring handbag on eBay in December."



    Seller ID "LOUKPEACH" sold a
    "CELINE Small Ring Bag in Dark Ruby "NWT" (#181930995015)"

    right at the beginning of the current 6-month period - which would have been December

    to a 1-Feedback buyer - possibly our government agent?


    I don't believe in coincidences.
