You can use a couple of hints from the video below as a general rule to buy pre-loved item of Louis Vuitton
Watch the Video and if you are an Australian, there is a LAW protecting you as a consumer!
The giveaway for those who never bought the product is the SMELL! Louis Vuitton Product don't smell like PVC!
Original Receipt should be available for viewing or at very worst, LV kept your record Globally! You can always request receipt to be emailed to you! and request of Receipt without your personal detail (gift only receipt!)
There are lots of Fake receipt, the easiest way to find out is to call the store to check the Sales Associate!
Dustbag is another item which is easily can be identified, LV product are spot on in their quality from the receipt, store bag, dust bag, and Box!
In summary, make sure you ask the following:
1. Original receipt as a Proof of Authenticity as LV don't have Certificate of Authenticity
2. Picture of the original dust bag and Box if possible, better still, I haven't seen fake LV Store bag
3. Ask which store they purchase this from and match it from the LV stores website locator
4. Ask for Refund if item is not authentic as in Australia, selling fake item is prohibited! and it's a CRIME.
if it's too good to be true then it probably is!
Good Luck and don't support counterfeit item! buying them is considering supporting black market!
