Don’t Be Duped By the Knockoff Artists

One of the major frauds committed online is the Louis Vuitton designer handbag scam.

Then, when you decide to purchase some Louis Vuitton handbags from them, they ask you to send them money via a method that is not traceable or reversible – check, money order, etc. So a few weeks pass by, you start to wonder and then worry where your handbags are. You try to contact them and guess what, they’re off to the next scam.

I can tell you it is nearly impossible to get a real Louis Vuitton handbag to resell- you can get some vintage handbags to resell, but watch out because chances are you bought one really good Chinese imitation – there are a lot of fakes Louis Vuitton handbags out there! If a site claims that they carry authentic LV its most likely a Louis Vuitton designer handbag scam. I bet you didn’t know that there is only one authorized store online that sells authentic Louis Vuitton handbags? Yup, ONE! If you buy Louis Vuitton from any other online source, it is more than likely that you are buying a very high-quality knock-off.
