I haven't really had any experience with that site. Some pictures are kinda dodgy and I would just suggest just buying the bag off the store. Did you try to ask them why did they tell you that there's only 1 stock left? Or maybe they haven't just updated their site for the quantity of the bag.

What bag did you purchase If I may ask?

So if they lie about this they could lie about the authenticity too. I would like your help. What do you know about efashionhouse? I am thinking about calling my bank and ask to block my credit card. If they sell fakes, I absolutely don't want them to touch my money. Thans for your advice.
WOW...you seriously shouldn't let yourself become that paranoid...

you hadn't received the bag, am i right? and they hadn't shipped it?
most websites update the quantities of their stock once it actually leaves the store/warehouse/whatever... i'm pretty sure if they only had one left, and you ordered it, they'd update their stock and the page saying that it was sold out.

...and if this isn't the case, then it isn't always totally probable that they'll never get another of the same bag in stock...people return/exchange things all the time, and you should take that into consideration as well...there are a lot of different factors that could come into play here...

what bag was this anyhow?

You are absolutely right when you say that I am paranoid, but I don't know, I see the idea of spending 599 dollars on a fake balenciaga (how could I buy a balenciaga on the net?) as a total nightmare. I would have troubles trying to guess if it's a fake or not, and it would be kind of a mess also to ship the bag back to USA from Europe. I bought this bag because I thought it was from a past collection, with the hardware in silver, that I prefer, and maybe with a better leather than the bags of the new collections. Now I think I was too confident. Maybe I am overeacting, but my experience on Yoox and Bluefly is that when you buy the last bag they have in stock, immediately after they mark 'this item is no more available'. You see? Thanks for your supporting...

elsa, I think you did the right thing. It sounds fishy and that is a lot of money to not feel sound about the whole ordeal.

it would be really helpful for us to give you advice and for other posters who might consider purchasing from this site to know which bag you are talking about.

As I wrote, it was a balenciaga, a twiggy. Personally I think they sell authentic items too. For istance, they have a big balenciaga bag (not the usual type) in green that certainly hasn't been 'copied' yet, because it is not a best-seller. But then they have this strange section where they sell bags inspired from designer's bags. I didn't notice that, and I think this is a bad sign. And again, if I google 'efashionhouse' in some results I have this name linked with 'replicas'. So...Of course I am not 100% sure that the bag is a fake, but I just don't know how to check and I don't want to take the risk. I was too impulsive: I saw apparently authentic items in the site, they wrote that the bag that I wanted was the last they had in that colour...These elements made me think at first that the item was real...Now I see that I can't be sure about that.

So, now I can be sure that they sell fake balenciagas. They canceled my order, but they didn't mail to tell me, they just did it (I found out in my account on their site). Mhh...And they didn't answer to my mail, where I asked questions about the authenticity, etc. So obviously I was right. They canceled my order to avoid problems and they didn't answer for the same reason. At the end, everything is right, but I had an horrible friday night. I had to wake up at four o' clock to block the credit card to finally calm down. I learned the lesson, I think. I won't repeat the mistake.
