Hi everyone, Please help me. I'm getting very confused now. I bought a Louis Vuitton Monogram Mini Lin bag last month. It was clearly stated in the auction description that the bag was AUTHENTIC and I was being naive to believe the seller because she seemed to be a nice person. I bought it as a present which is supposed to be given later this month. Thus during last month, I kept it well in the original packaging she sent me and didn't even touch it. However, after a month has passed I showed it up and someone asked me about the authenticity (the serial number and date code). I rushed to check and couldn't find any. Also, as I looked at it clearly, I realised that the bag has bad stitching in the inside with the thread going messy. I became very suspicious and after doing countless of research, I could finally confirm that I have bought a fake (from the lining, the thread, the LV pattern). When I bought from her, I was an absolute eBay newbie, I didn't even realise that she set private listing. I paid her with bank deposit as well, oh my bad. I asked the seller for refund of item not as described, but she refused, saying that it was as described because she didn't mention in the auction description about serial number and date code. Also, some bags don't have date code, is it true? I thought all authentic will come with serial number, no? She said that it was my responsibility to ask but I did ask her to confirm the authenticity and she ensured it in every way, even saying that she was reluctant to sell the bag indeed. She slandered me to return the bag when it's no longer new. When I explained the facts to her and confirmed that the bag is still new, she still refused to refund, even replying me this horrible message. louis vuitton does not have a serial number!!!! research...... and if you research again you will find that not all bags have the date code depending on age/bag, and also it is most likely hidden if you research you will find someone had to rip open a LV bag to find the date code, which is up to you if you want to do that to such a lovely bag. What do you guys think? She really didn't want to admit her mistake, not even talking about refunding me. What am I supposed to do now? Please help, anyone.. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.
