    only the repairmen (chanel handbag craftmen?) oops don't know which right word to use, they will know 100% whether the bag is fake or real.

    I read before from another forum is that, this lady bought her reissue 2.55 from her friend, she carried her bag to different chanel stores and the SAs in all the different stores said that her bag is real.

    But ended up her reissue is actually a fake because the reissue never came out of that color with silver hardware at all. When you carry a real bag in, they say it's a fake. When you carry a real bag in, they say it's a fake. Kinda irony and sad at times.

    Send the bag for refurbishment, best way to know whether your bag is authentic or not.

I was told by 3 SA's at 3 different locations , one gave an excuse that if they authenticate it and its not real that they can get in trouble if the person lets say says that that SA told them it was real and sells is on ebay or something , another gave me this quote " We just dont authenticate ..... if you think why....you would ....just know " This makes no sence !!! i would now rather buy a FAKE chanel bag over a 2,000$ real one because its worthless because NO ONE (unless your a chanel expert OR ACTUALLY WORK FOR CHANEL) will know if its real or fake !! this is very strange and is a complete turn off for me . how do you guys feel about this?
    If the bag had a hidden tag and you were able to use your cell phone to point to the bag as a response (if the bag was real) you would get a massage with the bag information approving it is authentic, would you have used it?

    This is bc most of the SAs at the CHANEL boutiques have huge sticks up their you know where. Any time I've gone to CHANEL, they ignore you. It doesn't matter if you're wearing an LV bag that costs $1000 or a CHANEL bag that costs $2000. Unless you look like you're going to buy something from them, they don't even try and help. The nicest person at the CHANEL boutique near Cental Park was the door man.

    Moreover, I personally feel that if you tell them you wanna authenticate the bag, it gives them the hinge that you bought the bag either through online or from a reseller, which sorta gives them a impression that this bag is a fake (although this may not be true).

    A good way to tell whether you bags bought from resellers or online are authentic, is to just walk into the store, and only request for refurbishment or repairment. When you bags are refurbished and repaired, it means your bag is authentic 100%.
    Hi Refusion! (waves)
    She is right, Chanel SA's are just not qualified to do authentications....especially on older bags. Many of these people were not even working three when the bags were first sold new and the hallmarks change over the years. They don't teach them how to authenticate older bags. They barely know anything about the bags they are currently selling! Often we tell them things that they don't have a clue about! lol!

    It's not their job to make sure you bought a real bag. It's their job to make sure you BUY a real bag.... FROM them
