hi, i'm relatively new to these boards so i apologize if i put this post in the wrong place. anyways the thing is on July 28 I bought a Prada handbag on e-bay for $250 (see link below). http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=190133330501&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=009 I also mentioned this purse in the "Authenticate this Prada" thread...i think the consensus was that it is a fake (seller has several identical purses, was highly faked model, price too low, etc). Yes, I now I see that I was dumb and shouldn't have bought it. This was purchased before finding tPF so I was pretty clueless about how much fake stuff was on ebay! Anyways, upon receiving the bag, I thought it was authentic (again, i was a newbie, this was before coming to these forums), so I left positive feedback and thought that was that. But then after couple days went by and after I used the bag a couple times, I noticed that certain parts (near the handles) were fraying off. I start noticing that the seams were uneven, and that the "Prada made in Italy" logo had square edges instead of round. Also, I just discovered a random tag inside the inside pocket (see pics below). All these things made me suspect that the bag was actually a fake. So I filed a dispute with PayPal, saying that I would like to return the purse for a refund because I realized that it was a fake. I said that I didn't know the bag wasn't authentic until afer a few uses where it started it fraying, etc. So I got a response from the seller insisting that the bag was authentic,and saying something that I probably damaged the bag myself in using it and that I only want to return it because I have "buyer's remorse". So now I don't know what to do. The seller ended communication before I could even reply to her response, escalating it to PayPal claim. I got an email from Paypal saying that I will get emails with further instructions on how to proceed, but that I will probably have to provide some form of proof that this bag is not authentic...mentioned something like a letter of inauthenticity for a reputable source, on letterhead etc. So my question is, how do I go about getting such a thing?? Is it worth it pursuing this claim? Now that I'm pretty sure that this bag is a fake, I never want to use it and I feel bad wasting $250 on it. anyways, any comments/suggestions are highly appreciated...thanks for reading!
