This afternoon I received a message from an eBayer that simply said "this is fake FYI" regarding a Canada Goose expedition parka I listed last night. It reminded me of ATLnoob's situation yesterday, so I didn't think much of it.
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.
I tried my best to be polite. What's the consensus -- did I succeed?
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.
