Everything off ebay is not fake. I have purchased several real things off ebay. There are millions of items for sale on ebay and while there are some ppl selling fake stuff..that statement is unfair to the ppl who sell real stuff. You do however, need to check things out. I agree with checking feedback.

I have never gotten anything fake from Ebay.  Personally, I don’t buy purses or anything on there but I have gotten DVDs, perfume, etc and never had a problem.

I’m sorry – that totally sucks. I hate when ebay sellers misrepresent themselves.

I got real perfume from ebay on more than one occasion. I’ll see if I can find out who the seller was and if they’re still in business since it was a while ago.

ETA unfortunately they are not in business. Sorry – wish I could help!

Haha Ok I am sorry Everything off ebay is not fake but A LOT of it is purses, northfaces, perfume, sunglasses…if its way cheaper than retail price then its probably fake.

Did you check this person’s reviews?  Usually, it can show you if other people are generally happy with what they purchased.

How much did you save, if it was the real product?  Sometimes, I’m a bit wary of products if the price is too good to be true.

It’s sucks, though.  I would be pissed, too.

I’m sorry to hear! Hopefully it’ll all straighten out and you’ll get the real deal for the same awesome price!

That sucks!  It definitely is buyers beware no matter how much you communicate with the seller.  The one good thing is that you can get your money back at all.
