Fakes or real who cares?
When someone buys a Louis Vuitton on eBay for 10-20 bucks they know it's fake. And they are happy with their purchase because they cannot afford an original.
I suggest that Designers chill out! FAKES WILL BE WITH US THE REST OF OUR LIVES!
Ebay cannot verify the authenticity of an item from a picture. Even if the picture or photo were real, they could still send out a fake in it's place.
There is no way to authenticate anything unless someone actually examines the article.
However, these fakes seem to serve a purpose in the marketplace.
Most designers wouldn't sell but a few if it weren't for the fakes and or imitations in the first place. Designer Hype is created by millions of women wanting the same thing.
I have a suggestion that would work for everyone involved...however I cannot state it on this board.
My suggestion would improve eBay sales by 100 percent...Fakes would all but vanish in no time, lol. No more getting sued. It could all be done with minimal expense.
Like I said I can't openly state my idea due to the fact that this is not done in an open forum.
I read somewhere that eBay has offered employees a 35 million dollar bonus for coming up with a solution that would improve their bottom line. Too bad I don't work for eBay.
