post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I bid for a pair of seven jeans and won, only afterward I realize that they are fakes? I want to be an good ebayer and pay, but I want authentic SFMK jeans? What to do?

it depends on what you are gonna do. would you wear them? if so, then go for it. also, is 35 dollars worth negative feedback? in the auction the user ID is private. is your ID always private? if so, then it neg. feedback might not mean much to you. it's really up your decision.

If they are cute I'd wear them. No, My user ID is not private. I guess I learned a lesson to research before I buy

True. So many people don't realize until afterwards that they are buying fake items. Anyway, I just wanted you to know, if you do buy the jeans, the quality will be extremely shabby. The sizing/fit will probably be all wrong. And the jeans won't last you very long.

A tip of advice: Don't buy designer goods from Hong Kong. Just a rule of thumb.

(If it was me, I wouldn't pay for it... but then again, if it was me, I wouldn't have bid on it either. I realize that some people do bid without realizing that fakes are in production though. It's usually those who don't know fakes exist that end up suckered into buying them)

If you don't want them, try just contacting the seller and calling their bluff. State that you know they are counterfeit and that importing counterfeit goods into the United States is a crime. You can't commit a crime now, can you?

Offer to not leave feedback on the transaction about the fakes as long as the seller doesn't leave feedback either. Basically, offer to walk away from the deal.

He can even file NPB and you can mutually agree to opt out of the transaction, so he can still get his final value fees refunded.

Umm.. sorry, but do you even know what you are talking about Labuzan? The seller will obviously NOT file a NPB, because if they do, ebay will investigate and see the fakes being sold. Also, the buyer will get suspended if the NPB goes through. Obivously neither the bidder nor the seller want the NPB filed in this case.

The entire NPB process on eBay is basically an automated communication archive to resolve an NPB complaint. I would bet that 99.5% of NPB claims are never looked at by a live eBay employee. They are just automated resolutions to the claims based on the response/non-response of the parties involved. eBay isn't going to catch counterfeiters investigating NPB claims. That is what VERO is for.

In any event, one of the options when filing for an NPB is to select "the buyer and I have mutually agreed to not complete the transaction." In this case, an email is sent to the buyer asking them if they agree to not complete the transaction, and if they do, it is closed. Nobody from eBay will ever be aware of the situation at all. The claim is opened anc closed in one step by mutual agreement.
