    Exclamation HELP! Louis Vuitton damier&azur speedy 30 for $850-900!!! Is it worth it?

    I was on a forum and someone offered to sell me a BRAND NEW damier ebeneand damier azur speedy 30 for $850-900. I would include pics after I recieve them.. but for now, can somoene tell me if it is worth it? They are including dustbag, but they lost their reciepts. She claims its real, but I don't know.. I was going to bring it to the LV store and ask them to check.. but I don't even know if they would check it for me? Oh and she claims condition is new.

    Edit- the seller said she never wore BOTH bags before.

    Are we talking US dollars? Because retail is $730, so why not just buy it from LV?

    yes we are. Well, it's BOTH bags. If it was for one that is around 700 then of course I would get it from retail.
    edit- woops, sorry just notice I forgot to mention one is ebene and the other is azur..

    What forum is it, and I would get pictures of the items BEFORE you purchase. Also, how long has this person been a member of the forum and how well do you know them? To be honest, no one would sell two brand new bags for $900 when they would retail $1500 for both. It sounds like a scam to me.

    Oh, it's for both. That makes sense. I agree with lils though, sounds fishy to me. Why would they sell them for such a deep discount if they were brand new?

    well, it's really not a forum.. it's craiglist lol. They posted pics on the post, but I kinda lost the post, I'll try and find it later and show it to you guys and see if you could tell if its authentic or not..

    Good question.. I don't know... She's desperate I guess? But you guys think it's worth it for $900.. Btw, she did say she could lower the price to 850 but if I want to go to the LV store and check she's going to have to raise the price to 900.

    Well Louis Vuitton won't authenticate, so that's a dead end. Craigslist is usually a place with scammers, and replicas, and you really have to be cautious of who you are buying from. I would go to your local Craigslist and search for the "Louis Vuitton Speedy" or something similar. If you have her e-mail address then ask her for detailed pictures of the items. If she can't provide it, then I would walk away. You shouldn't spend that kind of money on something that is a chance, and probably is a replica. You could just go to the store and buy one brand new Speedy, and know it's authentic.

    What kind of detail pictures should I ask her for? I never wore second hand before and this is the first time I'm doing this so I'm pretty damm clueless.. I usually go to the store and get them. But I just saw this offer and it just caught my attention. Oh, and I will post the pics she's giving me here.

    Well you should ask her to use a regular camera and not a phone camera, they don't take clear enough pictures. You need a close up of the date code for both bags, close up of the tag that says "Made in USA (or France depending on where they were made), and a close up of the damier pattern on both bags. The pattern on the Azur matches up to an authentic one, and the dust bag looks ok, but you still need better pictures. If she's not willing to give you better pictures and give you more, then it's not worth risking your money. If she really wants to sell them then she will go out of her way for you.
