    help please

    Hi I'm in a similar position bout a ralph lauren hoodie from eBay. It's blatantly fake, stitching coming off the horse, fake zip. Incorrect wash tag, worn. Seller agreed once I send the item back and the money clears his PayPal account. However I have also opened a case with him under item not as described as it was described as unworn. Should I wait for ebay to get involved or send it back at my cost?? *any help would be appreciated
    Thanks

    I would demand an instant Paypal refund otherwise report to police and trading standards. He can also pay for the item to returned after the refund. These people have got to be stopped from trading.

    In most cases you will have to pay to send item back, whatever the outcome.
    Make sure you send recorded so he can't say he hasn't received it

    DON'T SEND IT BACK, it's illegal to send counterfeit goods through the … DON'T SEND IT BACK, it's illegal to send counterfeit goods through the post despite any other advice. You need to make eBay aware and get a refund through them. If they or the seller ask you to post it back then you need to point out that it is against the law in this country.


    Yeh that's what I thought, I think I'll wait for ebay,

    Don't send it back. This has happened to me before with a fake footie shirt. Ebay refunded my money and told me to destroy the item

    The seller broke the law by selling and sending you counterfeit goods in the first place. You have no obligation to send it back and you should point out to eBay that the seller broke the law as per the above and you aren't comfortable sending fake goods.

    I'm not sure as I don't use it anymore. Best bet is to inform eBay that seller won't refund until they have had the item back, but it's counterfeit and you won't be sending it back.

    I had the same issue its hidden in the corner but wait times are 30 mins!!!

    If you get a fake item you should instantly open a case with eBay relating to that issue, don't try and sort it out with the buyer or open a case for a lesser issue.
