Hall of Shame: Post the Ebay Fakes Here!


Another one.

What do they think, it will pass authentication?
Does this one have grommets on either side to which a strap has been attached? Was that ever a feature that Hermès added to its birkins?
 
Fake Hermes scarves on Etsy, seller SilkQueenArt. I can’t even figure out how to report in the app.

Etsy has changed things so that now only the copyright holder can file a notice / report for take down. It needs to be either an 'authorized representative" of Hermes or in this particular design's case - Jonathan Burton. When I noticed another designer's designs being used illegally, I was able to locate a contact for her and wrote to her to alert her with links on where to go to file the claim. It looked to be successful, though there is a bit of whack a mole involved. Here is the link to report in case you'd like to share it with the artist or their representative: https://www.etsy.com/ipreporting
.. Edited to add: I am not a representative of Etsy, or employed by them.

Thanks for the info - I’ll do that. And after posting, I found that if I press and hold the image listing, I can report as prohibited. The problem is now I’ve interacted with the listing so much, Etsy has filled my feed with fake Hermes scarves. I wish I was kidding.

This seller is especially heinous, because they've provided a FAKE authentication certificate too. Just horrible.

Thank you so much for alerting us! I hate these fake sellers.

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/195949255897 - Listing needs to be taken down even though it's sold. Please report it! :tender:

I paid a third party to authenticate the Clic H bracelet, as I seriously suspected, it was deemed FAKE! Has sold a few more since, I feel for the other buyers as it cost me nearly $40 dollars ($25-US converted to AU dollars) to get a certificate -But, well worth it for me!

No way, no how, would I buy H items again on eBay. NEVER EVER!! I'll stick with my B&M Store here.
