    PayPal Counterfeit Authenticity Letter

    Hi,

    I bought an Emporio Armani watch from ebay (China) and surprise surprise it is a fake.

    Please can somebody write me a letter saying that this watch is definitely a fake (For paypal).

    I would gladly pay for someone (via paypal) to provide this information.

    All it needs to be is on a letterheaded paper, stating that the Armani Watch AR0115 inspected is a fake. The packaging is cheap and counterfeit, with the watch also being of a poor finish.

    Here is the blurb from paypal's email:

    Please obtain a document from an unbiased, third-party, such as a dealer,
    appraiser, or another individual or organization that is qualified in the
    area of the item in question (other than yourself), which clearly
    identifies the item as not authentic. If possible, the document should
    include a serial number and description of the item, and must be on
    letterhead.

    Please help, I only have 10 days to supply this information.

    Just go into any Armani shop and have them check it and write the letter for you..... also tell them where you bought it and the sellers name as they would prob want to curb these things, so you helping them will motivate them to help you

    LMAO..!!! You bought one from China thinking it'd be real?

    lol yes it was to be expected im afraid.

    You bought the watch knowing (or at least expecting it to be fake) and then try to make a Paypal claim? Is your intention to keep the item and also make a claim too? I really hope that isn't your intention.

    Isn't eBay directly at fault here? I presume that's how you bought it. I tried to sell a genuine watch which didn't have the paperwork (I found it and it was returned to me when nobody claimed it). Really expensive ladies watch. The wife wont wear it because it is bling Ebay refused to list it.

    Have you contacted the seller,what did they say ?

    I bought 2 armani watches from different sellers, 1 is fake 1 isn't.

    I don't want to keep the watch, in fact if someone wants to have the watch for writing the letter, it's a deal.

    The seller said return the item, but at my expense and no refund would be provided for his shipping charges either.

    Why do they want a letter? Don't you just raise a dispute. They nearly always find in favour of the buyer. Unheard of for them not too.

    Because it is my word against the seller's Paypal need an independent appraisal.

    99% of cheap designer wear that comes from China is fake, Of coarse theirs the possibility that it's real but very doubtful.

    In my opinion unless your happy with the risk of buying knock off items your best avoiding buying from China.

    so you want a "fake" letter to make a claim about a "fake" watch?????

    That isn't strictly true. What comes out of China are "grey" products, these are items that were produced in factories manufacturing official products. The manufacturer does a production run to the same designs but using inferior raw material and to a lesser production tolerance. These goods initially look as good as the genuine item, but will wear quicker, fade quicker etc etc.

    Watches, sun glasses, clothing and electrial items are all reproduced in this way and then sold wholesale to traders across Asia before finding their way to Western Europe and America. Designer clothes and accessories are the favoured items as some of the more unscrupulous traders will try to pass them off as genuine. I recently bought a pair of Rayban sunglasses for £15, the arm broke so I took them to an optician to get a replacement arm and despite my protestations that they were in fact fake he was adamant that they were genuine.

    The general rule is to assume that anything shipped from China, Malaysia or Indonesia is probably a "grey" copy.

    No I don't want a fake leeter, I will either take them to someone on HUKD or can send photo's via email, it is a blatant fake!!!!!!!!

    I went to Emporio Armani earlier today and at first they thought it was genuine.

    I highlighted all of the fake looking parts then they thought it was a fake!

    Hopefully the store will be able to sort me out, they wanted information of the ebay seller etc. I said I would call them tomorrow.

    If its fake and they draw up a letter they'll prob keep the watch or dispose of it. So you dont have to worry about sending it back to them. Even if you went to trading standards and got a letter from there it should be enough. They too would dispose of the watch i think. Paypal know this too.
