My cousin Lisa purchased a Coach purse from one of the site on the web last month and was really sure of its authenticity. We discussed it on the phone and she was very happy about the stuff she got. Few days later we met and she was with the same Coach purse. Though, I didn’t want to disappoint her but anyhow I found the purse wrong and fake. But Lisa was sure on the ground of serial number embossed on the lining of the purse inside which is said to be the identity of the purse but If the patch is not stamped – in other words, embossed into the leather – but is simply printed in ink – beware! The only bags I’ve seen with the credo patch printed in ink are the newer lines, like the Legacy, where the credo is lettered in gold-colored ink – and even then, it is still stamped into the leather before it’s lettered over in gold. so i told her that the embossing of the serial number on the purse does not proves the authenticity of the stuff. Coach clutches and small purses do not have serial numbers sometimes but they are authentic as been purchased from the genuine sites and dealers.
Many people like Lisa purchase replica coach purses and pay full amounts to the sellers without proper knowledge.
