A word of caution is that while this is a good guideline, it is wise to take all of this with a grain of salt and always look at each individual item before and after purchase (after you receive the item). A normally reputable seller could be selling a fake bag for many reasons... usually sellers get their items from multiple venues, and he/she could have been scammed...good sellers gone bad, etc...the list goes on. You may also not receive what is shown in the photos since pics can be stolen or they may use photos from a real bag and ship a fake. You really don't know till you get the item in your hands. Always make sure you have the item auth. if you have any concerns, and you can always post your auction links in our "auth. this Coach" thread above, and the knowledgeable ladies will be happy to help you out!
Closing this thread now since we have the other one. Good luck!!
