Today I authenticated 3 Louis Vuitton Speedies for customers. All three of them were fake and my customers had no clue. Rather than get an authentication before they bid, they bought the bags (for hundreds of dollars each) and then luckily decided to reach out to me during their 48 hour return window. While I was quickly able to determine their bags were without a doubt fake, the customers were shocked, angry, relieved – you name it. I can’t blame them though; How would you feel if you were holding a fake bag you just paid $500 for?
