Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 608

Looked into it when I got home from work, and sure enough, it's fake.  I scanned through similar listings, and found several other fakes for sale by what seem to be reputable sellers.

 

Obviously I immediately ripped down the listing, but I still feel scummy.  On a high price item, I should've done a little more work on the front end to verify authenticity.  It was a BINOBO, so fortunately nobody purchased the parka before I received the message.

Had the exact same thing happen on my first PRPS, took me all of 3 seconds to figure out they were fake when I actually researched.  Took down the listing, threw them out.

 

Wow. I'd say you made a convincing statement.

Are you in Austin?  Just passed on that exact retarded label either today or yesterday, thought it was a jacket, almost took a picture of it.  Spotting a crazy amount of fake ties lately, Armani, Boss and EZ.  Found a real Hermes today, stained and tattered.... sad.

 

Slow bay week for me, need to get off my ass and list, my bay closet overfloweth.

I think the most fake stuff I see is PRL - the everyday Polo RL stuff, not RLPL or RLBL, and it's pretty easy to spot from the label / color of thread used to sew on the label / pony (if there is one).  Got my taint burned a few times on fake PRL.  The sizing is almost almost always off as well.  

   

Aside from that, Burberry and Hermes seem to be top fakes, esp on eBay - I'd never buy anything of either brand from a non-US seller, who doesn't offer refunds, and even then you have to know what you're buying (Hermes "H" belt fakes are so crazy now that they counterfeit the receipts etc).

congrats! 

 

I think I've hit all the numbers, but it shows me short on transactions, which isn't so. I may be short on transactions with feedback, if that's the metric.

Nice.

Reprieve!  Monday is a USPS holiday...thankfully.  I was not looking forward to potentially labeling & packing 50+ items tonight, though I know there are guys here who do more than that in one day on a regular basis.  Not my idea of fun.

Nothing, I am referring to his mannequin prices. $55, right?

Mine is just leaning a bit. I can bend it back into place but I'm pretty sure it's not good for the mannequin in the long run.
