i just posted this in the "eBay auctions to be weary of" thread, but i thought it would make for some interesting discussion here. http://cgi.ebay.com/AUTHENTIC-MARC-J...QQcmdZViewItem the seller has listed a fake stam. however, the information in her item description shows that she's clearly knowledgable about stams. she uses the correct season and even talks about icy leather. of course, she could've gotten this information elsewhere, but it wouldn't be completely farfetched to believe that she could've lifted this information from the forums. as much as the resources here can be helpful to us, so that we don't end up paying hundreds or even thousands on a counterfeit bag, it can also be used by others to better trick unsuspecting buyers into thinking that their bags are the real deal. my first mj bag turned out to be a replica. i purchased it off of eBay and the seller posted pictures of the riri zipper and even offered a money back guarantee. it wasn't until i had it authenticated here that it realized it was a fake, and by then it was too late to get my money back. i'm sure this isn't a new topic, but it's scary to think of the measures people will resort to cheat and lie. i forgot to add that the seller could also sincerely believe that her bag is real, and that she has no malicious intent. who's to know for sure?
