Hello everyone, I am a first time user and a long time observer of this great forum. I recently bought my second bag at Chanel flagship in Tokyo a couple of months ago. Several days later, I dropped by at another boutique in town and out of curiosity, I asked the attendants to verify my bag. They politely said that they couldn't offer such service (can't remember why, my Japanese sucks). Later on, on a business trip to London, I did the same thing at their boutique on Bond Street. This time they said that my bag was fake ! They didn't tell me the reason since it was a company secret, they said. I also read on eBay that I shouldn't directly ask a boutique to verify my bag but instead bring my bag there for service. This way they will actually match the number on the hologram sticker with the one on their computer. Any ideas ?
