I am addicted to buying and selling. If the price seems to good to be true, don't go for it - it's probably fake. ALWAYS check the seller's feedback, a great tool to see all the negatives at once is Toolhaus.org. Also, I hate to say this and don't mean to sound prejudgice or anything, but check the country of the seller. I find that a lot of fakes are coming from Hong Kong....just be careful. Never do a wire transfer for payment or anything like that - you may never see your money again if you end up getting a fake. Some people say PayPal is unsafe but I think its the best method because you can always do a chargeback if you end up getting a fake item, or not receiving your item.

Have fun!!!

Nah its ok I've been jipped before from an HK seller and I'm Asian. I have also been tricked by white sellers from Michigan and other places. You have to be careful for the international sellers because if it gets lost in the mail, they will just say "sorry" and that's it. Also always when you buy from a seller overseas get insurance. There are some shady people in the HK that will sell something and never send you the bag, you just have to not wire them money.

tips...

use paypal.
always read EVERYTHING in the listing.
i've had more problems with people buying from me and not paying than with sellers not sending me my purchase.
check feedback always! if they have a LOT of neg feeback, just pass on it.
go with your gut. if the item or listing looks shady, pass.
do your homework. know the item inside and out before buying, esp if it is a high ticket item.
know that if you buy vintage, it will not be new.
know that if you buy anything by a designer, it may not be real.
know that if you win, you have to pay.

those are the basics i think...

Has anyone bought jeans (particularly sevens, rock & republic, true religion & diesel) on eBay and can recommend sellers? I'm wary about ebay but the prices better than most and I want to ensure that I'm getting something authentic.

well ive bought jeans on ebay and yes they are authentic i think, but not sure. the piece of mind is better than the cost of another 70 bux. I bought these jeans from adasa.com and activeendeavors.com and I knew that my sevens were authentic. I spent the few extra dollars and I live in them now. Also you should buy from online retailers not from ebay because they offer free shipping.

when you are buying an expensive item do you ever use escrow?
ive bought some stuff from ebay but ive never bought stuff over $1000.
can you use a credit card? or is paypal better?
how do you guys pay for expensive items?

I have posted this before, but I think the item that has less of a chance of being fake are designer shoes.
With enough pics- dont forget to ask about pics of the bottom of the heel and under the sole- you can tell if they are real or not because most designers leave thier imprints of names.

I personally have never bought clothes on ebay because I have no idea on the fit of designers and would rather not risk the chance of it not fitting...
