In this article I am going to show you how to Identify a FAKE Ray-Ban.
As a seller of Ray-ban's myself, i know the difference to the real deal and the totally fake to almost identical Ray-Ban's.

90% of Ray-ban's on eBay are FAKE! As a seller that really makes me annoyed because not only they are stating that goods are "AUTHENTIC" but they also damage sellers who do sell the genuine goods!
Most eBayers are not knowledgable about Fakes and in this article i will show you how to identify one.

HOW TO SPOT A FAKE - WITH THE SUNGLASSES:

  1. The markings on the Sunnies where it states the model number & brand name on the arms are Smudged and not printed/engraved clearly
  2. Ray-Ban logo on the outer arms for instance the Ray-Ban Wayfarers, the logo protrudes out
  3. The sunnies has been obviously painted on by a dodgy factory and can see the paint lines and surface is not smooth
  4. The paint on the sunnies can be easily scratched off and especially on the hinges and screws
  5. The glasses seem lighter in weight
  6. You can smell the paint when you open the case

At the end of the day many eBayer's go buy from the cheaper pair of glasses for sale from the COUNTERFIET seller and many are being fooled and ripped off without them even knowing.
There are TOO many consequences to why you don't want to buy a fake and some reasons are: The lenses break extremely easy and when it breaks when your wearing it you WILL GO BLIND, the sunglasses are easily broken, paint strips off sunglasses.

Bottom line, you receive a poor quality sunglasses that can injur you and won't last long as the quality is extremely poor and lastly you will be laughed at for wearing fake sunglasses when its obviously FAKE.
