    Default OOHILOVE auction site selling fake Louis Vuitton Handbags?

    Can someone please tell me a little bit more about this site? How can they sell Louis Vuitton handbags? I thought only LouisVuitton.com was where they can be purchased.

    There's a lot of curiosity about this site. They sell authentic items, and purchase them directly from the manufacturer, be it LV, Tiffany's, Chanel, etc. It costs money to bid, so you have to buy a bid pack, cheapeast is $30. It's $1 a bid, so if you bid 30 times, you've spent $30. They end up making a LOT of money, that's why they can sell bags for cheaper prices. If you don't win the auction, you can still purchase the bag for the difference of what they bag was won at vs. the actual cost. They order the number of bags bought/won and then send them out. It's complicated, and honestly not worth your time. Auctions can go on for hours (and do) after the 30 second mark, and people have complained about computer generated bidders who aren't real, so you never end up winning. It's really hard to do.

    I think I read somewhere that they are squeezing through a very tiny loophole. Something about that they are claiming these as prizes rather than up for auction or for sale.

    It is quite an interesting site. I followed an auction yesterday that was timed to end at 8:00 p.m. Due to the extreme high number of bids, it did not end until after 3:00 a.m. CST. Based on the final selling price of over $70, there were 3,500+ bids for this item. That means if every bid equals $1, they earned $3,500 on a $1,400 handbag. Pretty sweet for them. They do list what the total amount spend by the bidder was, in this case, over $370.00 A great deal for the bidder on an expensive bag. It does tke alot of time, commitment and savvy to be there at the right time to bid. Automated bids can be set up by each bidder, and will generate continuous bids until your bid $$ run out. My advice is to watch an auction so you can figure it out. It's very transparent and shows you who is bidding and how they made their bid - manual or bid assistant. CHeck it out but remember, it;s a bit like playing the slots with credits instead of money. Know your limit amount you are willing to spend. Research what other similar items brought and don't be an early bidder! It is sorta fun...
