I HATE FAKES!
There is nothing worse that saving up your hard earned money, and finally investing in that georgous new designer bag or purse, only to find out you've been ripped off by a fake! There are so many fakes on Ebay unfortunately. Id hazard a guess at 95%.
THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR
Sellers with very little feedback
Sellers who are continuously selling expensive bags and purses
Obviously, negative feedback
Sellers who cant provide a receipt, or a reason why they dont have one
DO YOUR RESEARCH - DO THIS BEFORE YOU BUY!
There are many websites available that can help you with determining if your new purchase is a fake
Check out the things to look for e.g. serial numbers and where the product is usually made to see if they match up
Dont be afraid to contact previous buyers and ask them if they are really happy witht their purchase
PICK THE ITEM UP IF POSSIBLE
Its alot easier to get your money back if you havent handed it over yet! Go and check the product out before you pay for it. ALWAYS be wary of sellers who wont allow you to pick up or check out the item.
EMAIL EMAIL EMAIL SOME MORE
Ask lots of questions. Never ever be afraid to ask questions. Email them 20 times if you have to. And if you dont get the answers you wan, or the seller is being evasive - DONT BUY. If the seller doesnt ever bother to return your email - DONT BUY!
Finally - if you are thinking of spending upwards of $700 on Ebay - why not consider saving that little bit extra and buying directly from the real store. It may cost you a bit more, but at least you know youve got what youve paid for.
There is nothing worse than seeing someone with an obvious fake, and just knowing that they have no idea!
