Buying first then will post pics here to get authenticated. What if fake you have risk not getting it returned?
Some people shop on the authentication page, scoping out good deals on recently authenticated bags. They grab it before the asker. If I am fairly confident it's authentic and the deal is great, I would not post it before buying.Landscape said:Buying first then will post pics here to get authenticated.

Most people keep their original receipts as these contain personal information, the copy of the receipt normally means people have blacked out their name/address/cc details etc. LV gives you the original receipt.Why do most sellers only have copy of receipt, do the LV store normally do not give out original receipt? Or, the sellers do not want to give out their orginal receipt?
I don't know how to determine authentic receipts though. Are there fake receipts exactly like the real reciepts?
I think this member pretty much summed it up! You still have to be careful with listings that offer receipts. Receipts can be faked very easily. Many of the fakes come with LV tags and receipts. The bad fakes have those dark yellow cards or the tags hanging on a stringI think it's possibly for several reasons:
- it could be a good deal that someone may not want to risk others seeing
- buyers who aren't aware of authentication services
- there is some protection for items through ebay/paypal/credit cards
- item arrives and looks different from posted pictures
- buyers who know a bit about the brand and take a chance
- uncooperative sellers who won't provide sufficient photos or properly take photos so buyer takes their own (and I'm guessing there's no red flags in the first place)
- find listing late and there's not enough time to get more photos, etc. or list it on the authentication thread
Some authenticators are more strict/disapproving about authenticating after the purchase, while in other brands it's not a big deal.
