most people who spend that much on a wallet cant tell. people are letting their personal feelings cloud their judgment. my wife could spend $450 on a booger that looks like abe Lincoln and if 6 months later she finds out its a fake booger I will still attempt to get a refund. do I care that she spent $450 on a booger? not really.

I would file a police report and insists on a copy of it. Then I would sent a copy of the police reports and a letter to the seller house demanding a refund. Send it certified mail or something official looking.

if it was sent USPS you should also file for mail fraud.

Most likely you still won't get a dime but you never know.

This is why you don't buy designer stuff on Ebay. I mean, to save $200? I would have just saved the extra money and went to the LV store. I've sold designer bags on Ebay, both Christian Dior and Coach. Not nearly as expensive as an LV bag, but I always put in my listing that I guarantee authenticity if brought to a Coach/whatever store. These bags have sold right away, but me personally I would never buy something like that off Ebay. And I sell and buy a lot on that site.

if i went to a store and they claimed to be selling real chanel purses. i buy that purse after inspecting it in person. it turns out to be counterfeit. the stores is still guilty of fraud. just because i was fooled by their deception doesnt mean "you get what you paid for." you dont pay $450 for a fake wallet. im surprised my wife didnt catch it in advance. she is familiar with that kind of stuff and also is familiar with a web site where people post pictures for verification of authenticity.
if you had bought it in a store, it's less likely to be fake. Amateur sellers on eBay don't necessarily know the difference, that's the risk you take. Well at least after the sellers return period. Sorry to hear it was fake but i'd move on.

There are just some things that ebay is not for, this being an example. Its great if you want to buy a guitar or a lamp, but if youre buying something that has a huge precedence for being counterfeited.....then buyer beware.
