I'm currently on the hunt for a reasonably priced speedy in good condition, but the fakes on eBay just really get me going. I especially hate it when people write "guaranteed authentic" or "I purchased it from so and so Louis Vuitton so no need to worry about fakes".. yet the bag is obviously fake !! http://cgi.ebay.ca/Auth-Vintage-Louis-Vuitton-Speedy-Bag-Purse_W0QQitemZ6849564558QQcategoryZ63852QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem This auction just hit on all of those sore points and then some. The bag is obviously fake.. not even a good fake. And there's no way this bag is 2-3 years old.. maybe 12-13 years ! These kinds of fake are old old old, the newer ones are far more sophisticated and a lot less crappy. I can't believe that it's also damaged, yet she's selling it. Can you imagine someone walking into a boutique with this bag, asking if they could repair it and being told flat out that it's a fake ? I'd never be able to walk into the store again !! Purchased from Holt Renfrew my butt, you'd be laughed out of the store ! Grr.. need an angrier emoticon ! :evil: I emailed a MPRS seller yesterday about upcoming speedy 25 auctions, and she sent me a reply with an auction link, only someone had already bought the bag in the briefest of hours between our correspondences !! Grr.. I'm just not having a good day.. week.. !!
