Authenticity issue with an ebay seller - Page 2

post #16 of 21
I think that in a lot of cases, people know they are purchasing fakes and paying a price suitable for fakes, and thus are content with their purchases. What boggles my mind is when people are paying as much for the fakes as they would for the real thing yet leave positive feedback.

I just sent a leather jacket back to paypal, for the purchase insurance, that I am 80% sure is fake Ruffo--either that or Ruffo makes some real junk, too. Label and tag looked close.
They produce fake Ruffo? I see those very fake Versace leather jackets a lot. People still bid on them even though the labels do not even state Versace just V, and lions head buttons. Ridiculous.

I've seen those as well. The title states 'Gianni Versace' but the lining of the jacket is embroidered with 'GV'. Definately fakes, but people are naive. The funniest thing I saw on ebay was a leather jacket made by Gianni Armani. What a way to combine names.

Fakes are getting real good. Proof is in watches - some of the fake Patek Philippe's I have seen on websites are incredible (and not cheap at several hundred $). Many of them now come in with skeleton backs, indidividually numbered and "Patek Phillipe"-d named parts and everything. Amazing really.

I was looking at a few of the fake watch websites, and I suspect that they use photos of the actual watches on their website rather than the replicas they sell. Some of them look too real to be offered at $200.

My experience with fake watches is that they tend to have small but very irritating quality control issues - slightly off-centre markings, bracelets that don't stay shut, cheap chrome-on-base-metal finishes, etc. Also, while the fakes of some common watches (e.g. Omega Seamaster) are almost indistinguishable, even side-by-side, with the real thing, the copies of more obscure watches tend to be quite poor.
