Default Would you buy Gucci bags etc off of eBay?

Just wondering, since we all know its high risks etc, would you guys and gals buy this type of stuff of of eBay knowing that it could be foo foo? It doesn't have to be Gucci or whatever. Just anything where you would expect to be genuine.

Why?

There is no point. Especially since certain brands like Gucci have outlets...

And awesome sites like yoox.com where many unsold designer items are sent when the seasons change.

Never. Not unless I was going under the assumption that it was a phake. eBay is NO PLACE to buy an original designer item.

I never expect Hell to freeze over so I never expect to buy these on ebay.

OP, Would you buy them?

Well, I don't buy Gucci stuff, but yes I would buy that type of "stuff" on eBay, knowing what to expect. I'm not going to be like other buyers, complaining its foo foo.

I think certain things are pretty easy to tell if they are ⊗⊗⊗⊗ or not on eBay going by the pictures and the seller.

I have and will again buy designer stuff from eBay, partly because its very convenient and partly because it may no longer be available in the shops.

If something is a knock off its a bit annoying but its pretty simple to turn return it and get a refund. Luckily its only happened 2 times in the last few years.

It is a silly risk to involve a stealth account for the sake of an item that has a high chance of being phake.

Have to look at the overall picture here.

Is it worth the risk of harm to a stealth account for a counterfeit? Buyers can lose. So no it is not.

Its not a stealth account

While there may be a lot of phakes on eBay there are also a lot of genuine items being sold by genuine sellers.

So long as you do due diligence then then the risk is not all that high, and often eBay is the only easy to access market place that will have a 30 year old watch/sunglasses/wallet ect.

I personally don't buy name brands of anything. If it was a diamond, I'd just buy the, what was it called? The saconium diamond or something? The man made diamond I mean. Both is just carbon, and both is just as hard, why buy one made by a volcano for 50x the price? Both of them is hard enough for industrial use.

But I was just saying if you're going to buy name brands off of eBay and it turned out to be foo foo, then so be it.

So that's your case.

It still applies that stealth users should probably err on the side of caution in case of issues.

Ah, but the real McCoy is wonderful to wear on your finger.

Dont need ebay to taint a sale of a real diamond.

The only thing I 'trust' to buy from ebay are office supplies and electronics from LARGER sellers. Even the art stuff that I buy needs to come from a larger source on that platform unless its in bulk or a closeout.

Gucci and LV on ebay? Nope

I buy underarmour stuff on ebay. Oftentimes UA ebay store and oftentimes in the plastic ziplock bags, lol

Honestly, It is almost impossible to know if, per say, an under armour shirt is 100% legit unless you try top silk screen it and it does not require 350 degrees, haha

I guess what I am saying is, I do buy that sort of stuff and sometimes I expect it to not come from the original manufacturer.

I actually did buy a very high value Louis Vuitton purse for my wife on ebay.
Made sure the seller had well over 5000 feedbacks for similar sales with zero negative feedbacks before doing so and made sure I had a contact within the local Louis Vuitton store who could verify for me that it was authentic.
There are some circumstances under which it is possible to do so.
