    THis makes me so sick. I'm looking for a bag for my mom as a gift and I come across hundreds of these on E-bay (this one already is up to 23 bids) It's an obvious fake....Is there anything to do to stop this....also any advice where I can get a multicolor? my mom really wants one... thanks

    Maybe report it to Ebay? I believe they aren't "allowed" to sell fakes on Ebay even though tons of people obviously do! Have you checked with all the Louis Vuitton shops in your area?

    Reporting to e-bay doesn't work, since they just profit from their listing. In addition to some buyers who bid on these, the prices are soo high that ebay wants the profits! Does it matter if your mom gets a real or a fake? There are some really good ones out there unlike the one picture..

    well that one has that stupid piece of "leather" hanging from it and the "louis vuitton" tag with that round plastic thing, and if you notice the bottom of the bag, all the brass studs are really no aligned well.....I checked the louis v. store in my area and they have none, do I have to order it? If I do how much would that specific bag cost?

    thanks

    There is a company called Vero that works with Louis Vuitton and removes these type of listings.. I have no idea how to contact them but they do exist.

    Does LV do any bags that don't have their logo all over them? Or any that aren't two-toned?

    Ok just saw this.... This isn't real is it? Why would they be selling it for so cheap? And I thought that these bags were not yet even available yet. *hrumph*

    someone posted some of the spring 04 lv bags and this one kinda looks like the stuff they had out. like they had a lot of ruffles and were crescent shaped. i have no idea if its fake though.

    is there any way to tell its fake by the orderof the colors of the LV on the murakami bags. like does the pattern always go pink green blue etc? or is it all mixed no matter what?

    What I did was send notes through ebay to the members bidding on these disgusting fakes telling them to cancel their bid. It just makes me so sad that these people spend a lot of money for nasty pieces of crap.

    Diesel, if you're still looking for a bag on ebay, let me know because I own a lot of that collection and I can help you identify the real bags from the fake bags.


    Also, most LV stores do not have a lot in stock, but it depends on where you live. Most waiting lists are about 3 months long.

    There are some fakes that people are allowed to sell and it's all legit... But the ebay crap.. that's just a rip. :( I feel sorry for the shmuck who ends up paying for it.
