It is a fake. The buckles are wrong. One clue is easy to spot on the silver tag. Do you see where it says No.? The "o" in a genuine bag is super tiny. The one in yours is big. I'm sorry. You should ask for a refund and also file with your credit card company, if you paid via CC.

I agree the hardware does look funny and the tag does too:confused1: :confused1: How dare somebody..how do they sleep at night. You should be able to get your money back because the listing says 'guaranteed authentic'.

Judging from the pics, it looks fake because the leather looks too shiny & the tag inside isn't supposed to be metal on citys as far as I know?? But it's not because there's no leather in the front pocket. Try to get your money back hun. Good luck!

oh...i am so sorry that this happened to you!!! it's so hard to get a bag that you are 100% sure authentic on ebay because of so many dishonest sellers.
the hardware and the silver tag seem a bit off...as everyone already said.
so sorry again and i hope you get all your money back!

Hardware is completely wrong (Balenciaga hardware is more molded, not so square) and the tag is off -- the circle after the N is way too big, the Z is too narrow, the font should be sans serif and there should be a strong underscore between Balenciaga and Paris for a "Z" bag. And a minor point about the seller, but the claim of a $1700 retail price in the US is off (just another indication of a dishonest seller).

Try to get your money back...if you used a credit card, you should be able to. Good luck! I'm so sorry this happened to you...I bought one bag on eBay, and I was so nervous just because it can be hard to tell what's going on in the photos.

For future purchases, try memorizing the silver tag/what to look for on eBay pages at ateliernaff. It's an excellent reference!
