Anyone work in the shoe trade?

Found 4th Nov 2010
So, to cut a long story short, I bought fake uggs I think. Was not clued up & just wanted some for my feet to be comfy as I am pregnant.
Stupid paypal have said that I have to take them to a shop, and get them to write me a letter on headed paper saying they think they are fake in order to get my cash back.
How dumb is that, I offered photos of the flaws I found!
Well, I can not treck to the next town, by bus with a toddler, a pushchair and a big box asking shoe people to do me a favour when I didn't buy from them!
Paypal said I can email anyone in shoe trade with photos then take a photo of the reply and upload it.
Just wondered if any kind person was able to do this for me?
Thanks.

Surely a genuine Ugg retailer would

isn't there a forum somewhere for UGG enthusiasts gather, just like there is for Chloe Paddington bags. Surely someone will be able to help there, it may cost a couple of quid as I know one authentication service does charge a fair bit for Chloe bags.

I asked schuh or watever they are called and they said sorry but as I did not purchase from them

Also the official ugg site states it refuses to help in these cases.

Was they from eBay?x

THis is common practice for Paypal,can't you get a friend or relative to do it for you,or better still take them to Trading Standards.

Aww chick poor you, my mum did the same, and ebay messaged me the next day ( as on my account) saying do not pay for the item as they were fake.
Have you directly messaged the seller to see what they say?xx

Yeah she said she bought them herself in good faith and did not know. I got them for £65. They are not bad but one label at back is wonky and some stitching looks clumsy. I feel they should be immaculate for what they are meant to retail for xx

Oh absolutely £65 is alot, have you asked the seller for a full refund and you to send them back?
Sorry not very helpful here, I know how it must feel though for you!
There was a similar thread not long ago and the lady had to get proof they were fake and it to be stamped by the owner of the shop and signed. All I can suggest is to ring up reputable companies that sell them, explain your situation and see if they can help you, I'm sure one would be willing to help xx

I just hit on the idea of mailing a lady on american ebay who has written an expert guide on fakes, as she has been selling them for years. I asked her if she would be so kind to have a look and give me an opinion so fingers crossed xx

paypal will expect a letter on headed paper from a genuine retailer of ugg boots, this s how so many people selling fake goods get away with it, i purchased to fake sony memory cards, and couldnt get anyone to authenticate them as fakes, including sony themselves

You would think they would be on the buyers side really! I really do live quite far from town and can think of nothing worse than busing it, then having a fed up 15 month old shouting and wailing in a posh shoe shop lol x

Hi, I know you said the Ugg webby wouldn't help but you should try them on Facebook, they're always giving out advice on avoiding fakes, maybe they can point you in the right direction of how to get them authenticated? It's facebook.com/ugg…lia Couldn't hurt to try Good luck x

ugg shoes are not good for feet, as they don't have the arch support.so they will make your knees and back hurt.
