    Default ohh my gosh .. too many fakes out there !!

    A colleauge of mine said she bought a great Louis Vuitton Speedyfor $100 dollars on a website beginning with a man's name and ending with list (not sure I can say the name of website here ) I looked at the bag and it didn't look authentic to me as the brown looked too dark and the vinyl felt a bit slippery. I mentioned that to her but she was just thrilled ( I just don't get it ). I came home from work and checked out that website and OHHH MY GOOSH -- there were TONS of Gucci's and Prada's and Louis and Coaches that were FAKE (with plastic around the handles ).

    It appeared that there were some authentic ones (the ones listed at $400 and above and the sellers were offering receipts ). I think I would just be a bit afraid to buy one from that site !!

    A while ago I posted about getting scammed on ebay. In short the person was taking pictures of real bags and then sending fakes. I spent $1500 on a Prada and it was fake, thank goodness we got our money back though!

    If you just google designer bags, you can definitely see tons of website selling it. But I guess at least they are upfront about the fact that it is fake bag, so people who bought it knew they were getting a fake (doesn't make it right though).
    But what really gets my goat are the sellers who claim their items are genuine and sell it online or at boutiques(yes, seen and heard about it)!! They pull the price down a bit to make it seem legit but still the item are fakes, some with authenticity cards, serial no and even receipts (if they are pre loved)!
    You can still get real ones but have to be very very careful in researching the bags and getting it authenticated which is why forums like this are a godsend for ladies (like me) who have more style than funds!

    Yes, it truly is awful. My local craigslist (you can say the name on here) has 99% fakes, it is worse than eBay.

    I agree with you. Buying and Selling fakes on line is just WRONG. If you don't know the site/ sellers, you should do more research before you buy.

    I think that is a bit of a sweeping statement. There are many bad sellers on Ebay BUT there are good sellers as well.
    As I said here http://www.thebagforum.com/ebay-foru...akes-real.html
    post #3, you can get a bargain if you do your research and always get it authenticated.
    I sell my old bags on Ebay and a few of the members here do as well, am sure they all sell authentic bags as do I
    I've bought authentic items off Ebay at really bargain prices (a flawless Bottega sunnies at 10 pds, RRP200+ pds; near flawless Tods D-bag Media at 150 pds, RRP700+ pds and the list goes on and on..)
    Research and authenticate before you even think about bidding

    Fakes are all over. Me and the BF were at a flea market last weekend looking for junk, we love junk ! And came across a booth with wall to wall fake Coach. I so wanted to say something like, "Do you have any real bags?" But the the BF pulled me off before I could
