Hi All, I was looking for a LV miroir gold papillon and because there are so many fake out there, I thought buying from a power seller should be more secure. Then I saw one listed by a power seller but didn't sell. So I asked if that is still available and would she consider Best Offer. She accepted my offer and I said I'd like to buy through eBay. I also had few more questions for her by that time, but everytime when she replied, she never answered all of my questions, always missing something and replies were very very slow. Well, she finally said "YES I can bid" after I asked her 3 TIMES!!! However, auction were never relisted so I chased again. She said, "Oh sorry I just realized it is not listed..is it possible for me to send you an invoice thru paypal for it? Your protection is thru paypal anyway and this way we can save on the ebay fees... every bit helps since we are reducing it for you..." I thought, alright... she has about 1930 feedbacks, and rating is 100%, maybe I could trust her. And because her replies were very very slow, I wanted to get it done as soon as possible. So I bought the bag from her out of eBay. When I received the bag and inspected it, my nightmare started!!!! I found scuffs marks in several places!!!! Also there are missing paint on the side of the straps in 3 areas!!!!! The worse part is even 7.5 inches long!!!!! MY GOD!!!!!!! And the ultimate nightmare is, I also found a punch hole on the leather tag inside the bag!!!!!!!!!! What?!?!?! That is supposed to be a new & never carried LV bag!!!!!!!! But what I got is a bag with lots of big flaws!!!!!! You're kidding me!!!!!!!! No wonder she lured me to trade out of eBay. Stupid me!!!!! I complained to her and her answer was, "This has never happened before and we have been selling for 8 years now on ebay. The punch hole was not in the bag when I sent it. It looks as if Customs opened it, and we have no control once Customs steps in..." About the punch hole, she even said it happened to her other oversea customer before. You are joking!!!!!!!!!!! Why would Customs punch a hole on the tag?!?! They have tons of things to go through everyday, how would they have time to do such rediculous thing?!?! And what's the reason for doing it???? They have no rights to do so!!! She just tried to blame on the Customs but the thing is, the box has no sign of being opened by Customs!!!! I had packages opened by Customs before, they would leave a card & leaflets in the package as well as putting a seal on the box saying it has been opened for inspection. But this time there are no such things at all!!!! I have also contacted Customs to double check, they just said the same thing to me!!!! Since I paid by PayPal echeck (direct bank transfer) and not buying through eBay, does anyone know if I can still claim through PayPal? Just wanted to share my terrible experience. Be careful and cautious also with the power sellers!! They can be swindlers too!! Shame on her!!!!!!!!!!!!!
