I recently had two experiences with fake brand name items from sellers--one refunded everything except for the return shipping, and the other just the item cost. jeffscloset
- Loads of Prada sweaters and shirts. This guy is very communicative, and cordial. My shipment was evidently delayed for at least 10 days because the label got wet, and the sweater got sent back to him. Hmmmm. I did finally receive the supposed Prada sweater, and it lacked any size, composition or care instructions tags. The material wrinkled very easily. The Prada tag outside was also haphazardly sewn onto the sweater. All the photos in his auctions are low quality JPEGs so that potential buyers can't really see the lack of quality on these supposedly $1000 sweaters. I took some high resolution photos, emailed them to Jeff, and asked for a refund. He offered me a $15 discount, but also said he would refund the entire transaction if I sent it back. He "disagreed" with me as to the authenticity of the product with the only proof he has being that he knew five ex-Prada employees who would disagree with me, and that Prada quality has gone down in recent years. I sent the sweater back at my own expense, and agreed to a non-completion on eBay (he got the eBay fees back). I left him positive feedback as I didn't want him to leave me a negative. He has well over 5,000 feedback, so my one negative would not make a dent. But his would have to my perfect account. At least I got most of my money back. The other one was a $25 fake Paul Smith plain black dress shirt. The seller seems much more low profile (listing one shirt at a time), so I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt although I lost shipping both ways--and shipping was $10 while he used the cheaper USPS First Class mail (about $3) to send it. One seller that I can recomment is parisvegas
. Kevin sells a lot of one-off's that I'm assuming he wins at the poker tables or something like that!
Only thing is that his stuff needs a cleaning once you get them, and it will smell of cigarette smoke. Then again, I think the entire city of Las Vegas smells of cigarette smoke. I got some "smoking deals" on some items because his photos are shaky and the colors are off, and he does little to describe them.
