If you are shopping eBay looking for a Fake High end Purse or
sunglasses, this guide is not for you, however, if it is your intention
to find an authentic Louis Vuitton, Coach or Chanel Sunglasses at
auction on eBay, you will in fact want to read this Buyer's Guide
before you proceed.
Red flags - this Buyers Guide is about the identification of 'Red
Flags' - those things you should look out for when shopping eBay for
authentic high end merchandise as mentioned above. Here are those Red
1. Current Season Bags Below Retail = A Fake Bag
If a seller is prepared to let current season bags go for below retail,
especially on a regular, day to day basis, the bags are ALMOST
CERTAINLY fakes, no matter how authentic they may look. The only way a
seller can regularly and most importantly, legitimately get a hold of
genuine high end designer bags and sunglasses is if they are an
authorized dealer - and if they are an authorized dealer, then they
will most certainly mention this in their auction - look for it. If
they do claim to be an authorized dealer, why are they selling at below
retail on eBay? It doesn't pass the sniff test.
Your best bet is to buy a these items from a individual that is NOT
selling them in bulk, and has narrative to the auction stating it was a
gift, or something they won, etc, etc. LOOK at their feedback. Why? For
several reasons - first and formost, check the auction numbers of the
individuals that left the feedback in the recent past to see if any of
those items are the same high end item you are bidding on. Sometimes
sellers to use forthought to realize they are making up a story stating
they have only one of these items, and you look to their feedback and
they have sold 15 in the past 45 days.
Use this website to type in their username and it will give you only
their negative feedback so you do not have to shift through several
pages to see the comments left about them that are unfavorable.
2. The importance of Photographs.
This cannot be stressed enough. Look closely at these photographs for the following things:
Is the stitching all the same color? Can you see a serial number? Are
the images very clear? Are they using stock images? Look for similiar
backrounds in multiple images of the same auction. Why? Because some
sellers are fake bags will include pictures of authentic bags mixed
with pics of their fake bags, so look for consistency in backrounds
etc. Ask them to take more pcitures of the item - if they respond with
those requests images, that is a good sign.
3. Overseas Sales.
If the seller is from Russia, Far East, China etc. Stay clear. These
sellers tend to register on the UK eBay because their selling
requirements are so lax.
I suppose you can boil the advice given in this guide to a few important 'bullet' points.
Buy from a private party that is selling something they
recieved/purchased and no longer want. They will answer your questions,
requests for photos etc. They will not have feedback relating to the
same type of items sold in the past. They take a lot of pictures. They
will live within the United States. Use these parameters, and you have
just drastically decrased your risk of being scammed into paying full
price for a fake bag or sunglasses.
Safe buying Everyone.
