right guys my brother was round at weekend and wanted to buy his girlfriend some ugg boots for xmas the cardi ones. now i warned him about ebay and fakes but he was so desperate to get her these in time for xmas he bought them at £60 buy it now plus post. i emailed the seller explaining they were being bought on behalf of my brother for his girlfriend for xmas and asked if she could guarantee me they are 100% genuine and come in the brown box and she replied and said they was. but they clearly are not and plus the brown box has a big sticker on the side saying china post. now him and his girlfriend wont know if they are real or not and i know he is short of cash and i dont want to worry him so i was thinking of just handing them over to him and say nothing but i have emailed the seller and told her i know they are fake and we are not paying £60 for something fake so have told her i will keep them but asked for a £20 refund.

so do you think i am doing the right thing or am i being wrong asking for a part refund?

if you are happy with £40 fakes then yes but i would demand a full refund did you pay with paypal?
#2
if you paid via paypal then raise a dispute and escalate it to a claim as the item you received was significantly not as described. I.e if the listing said genuine Ugg boots and they arent then claim on them to get your money back asap. Also contact ebay and report it to them.

by raising an alert with paypal, they will ask you to post the box back and provide proof of postage, so you are looking at 5-10 quid postage out of your pocket...
it sucks, but that's how paypal works...

well thing is he and she wouldnt know they are fakes and he wants them for xmas for her and i know full well he cant afford £120 for them from the shop so was thinking of handing them over and saying nothing and then get £20 back off her as i dont want him being ripped off big time and give him the £20 and make some excuse. too be honest i am not sure what to do.:x

i know thats why i was thinking of asking for a part refund from her and to be honest i have threatened her with neg feedback and she has zero feedback so dont think she will want that.

How can you you spot fake Ugg boots from Genuine ones please? not that clued up and want to get some for my sister's birthday

got caught with fake uggs last year, they will fall apart within a couple of weeks? quicker if they get wet, also i have a feeling that your brothers girlfriend will know straight away that they are fake..

get your money back..

well it is the pattern on the bottom and also the tag inside. i have some genuine ones myself and on close spec you can see the difference but must admit these are a good fake with all the R in the right place so if it wasnt for the tag inside and the china post sticker on the box i wouldnt of been able to tell.

Have you recieved them yet or waiting for them?

On the Ebay guide, google is your friend

You paid £60 for a notoriously faked item from someone with negative feedback? Didn't you suspect anything?

tell you friend the truth then he can decide and hopefully he will ask her fakes are fine as long as you know they are fakes not fair to let her think they are real

report it through paypal. Type in how to spot fake ugg boots in google and it will take you into a guide on ebay which shows photos of genuine and fake however, the fakers have got extremely good and it is hard to spot the difference other than the fact that they will fall to bits within weeks. From experience, 99% of the ugg boots on ebay are fake and they are making thousands of pairs and hundreds of thousands in profit. Only way to guarantee getting a genuine pair is to go to high street shops unfortunately. No such thing as a bargain where ugg boots are concerned!

Agreed we all have to start somewhere but unfortunately this will probably be an expensive lesson learnt. I will only normally deal with anyone on ebay with high feedback and will pass up on auctions (good and bad probably) rather than take the chance.

Hope you manage to sort something out. Another piece of advice - you need to let him know the truth or he will assume everything on ebay is perfect, which unfortunately it is not!!

Ugg Cardys are massively popular and are out of stock at most of the genuine sellers so if somebody claims to have all sizes in stock and for £60 then they are 100% fake.

Also you cannot get genuine ones for anywhere below £100 at the moment (if you can find them)

ebay scammers annoy me so much

I believe with fakes they actually ask you to get a signed appraisal from an 'expert' to say they are fake and you don't have to send them back as that would be assisting the original offender.

But yeah, RING paypal and ask what to do, don't bother emailing them. If they do say to return them, say you're not happy at letting fake items re-enter circulation:thumbsup:

no one has given the right advice :lol: ............... if your reporting fake goods, you need to get trading standards to dispose of them, they will give you a receipt proving they are fake, you can then start a dispute with paypal and send them (via fax) a copy of the receipt.....

paypal then won't make you send back the goods, and you will get your money back

unless you want to keep them use blackmail against the seller, tell them you know they are fake and will be reporting them to ebay , ugg boots and UK trading standards (if they in the UK)

they would be prosecuted by UGG and TS for copyright infringement

depends on who you get to speak to at paypal they will ask you to prove they are not authentic, you have to go to a retailer selling these and ask them to give you proof they are fake, so good luck last time i received something fake i could not get one person to help me, not even sony themselves

Sadly if he'd shopped around a bit he could have got cardi's from here for £60 (ok, just over!):

Given as they're a major retailer I'd assume they're genuine??!!

She may not notice they are fakes, but a friend eventually will. She'll probably be very upset to have it pointed out to her.

return for a full refund. Supporting the fake industry on ebay isn't on imho.
banned#26
it really is out of order letting her think they are real, either tell her there fake or get a genuine pair! as pointed out mandm sell them for pretty much the same price

Um, conclusions, jumping to? Read up on http://reviews.ebay.co.uk/HOW-TO-TELL-A-FAKE-UGG-BOOT_W0QQugidZ10000000003018695 . They're meant to be from China and the label's meant to be inside, so what's the proof that they're fake?

i had the same problem with an adidas hoodie which i bought for my partner and he told me it was fake. i contacted seller who told me to send them back and they would give refund but i didnt want them to sell it to someone else so i contacted paypal and raised a dispute. i had to go into a retailer (sports shop) but you can go to one that sells uggs and get them to write you a letter to say it is a fake..fax it to paypal and then they will email you a confirmation that you have destroyed/disposed of the fake item..sign it and fax back (i uploaded a photo of the signed letter to paypal) they will then give you money back...in no way would paypal want you to send back the item to the seller..so you wont be out of pocket for return p and p. they refunded me both cost and p and p for arrival..i got £50 back in end..seller was none too happy but shouldnt of sold me a fake!!
