    Angry Replicas

    Out of 2,905 Louis Vuitton items in the "Women's Handbags and Bags" category, I reported over 40 items.

    Seriously eBay... WTH!

    Most of them were MC Pochettes, which were disgustingly fake!

    The bad fakes aren't the ones that make me nervous, it's the good ones! There were 2 Graffiti Speedys on there that looked so good, except for the fact that the pink wasn't bright.

    Grrrrr eBay

    Do they even do anything once an item is flagged? I mean how many people have to flag an item before eBay is like, okay time to remove this item..

    So horrible. I hope eBay does their job, and actually spends the time to review the flagged items and nobody gets stuck with one of those fakes.

    I went through and did that the other day! It was so frustrating looking for one and all I kept finding was replicas and fakes for up to $200! the worst part is only a few of them were shut off

    Fakes on ebay is nothing new. They will always be there unless ebay hires people to scan and report listings, something it would never do because it costs money.

    the point isn't that it's something new, but constantly growing. eBay doesn't need to hire people to report listings because MANY of the people who love luxury goods report them. i feel like if you love luxury bags, and you love looking for deals on places like eBay, you have sort of a small part in helping report them.

    I agree, but lately eBay has not been doing much to remove the listings reported. They used to be a bit better about it, but for some reason it seems like they have given up or maybe have plans to handle the fakes differently. I don't know, but I remember reporting fakes and seeing them removed, not anymore.

    Those rats selling fakes easily do get prey, and that probably scares ME the most; because so many people don't bother taking time as a handbag lover to actually study what is real and what isn't. Yet, on the other hand, I feel like they deserve it because they are too lazy to study up their bag-knowledge.

    The least a buyer could do to spot a fake is to look at all pictures given, and from background knowledge, find flaws in the purse that a real handbag would not normally have.

    I saw a lady at the mall today wearing a Juicy Couture gold toggle necklace with heart. It looked very pretty.
    So i decided to browse through ebay and see if any were available. There are over 1,700 JC necklaces. I went through the first 10 pages and an overwhelming 98% are fakes!!!
    Amazing thing is many of them have multiple bids....do the people not realize it or don't they care?

    All of the fakes can be easily spotted, because the posting is very vague and never mentions the word authentic, and the title is always followed by a code (ex: "N43") I guess they assign a code for each replica item or style. Further if you look at the pics, the finish on them is not perfect. All are shopped from some location in china. the script is in chinese, so you can't even make out where it is from!!

    I have totally lost any interest in getting one of the necklaces
