    I believe they feel the negative feedback will theoretically shut them down. I think they would need to have a team of perfume experts to actually get samples of the supposed fakes and evaluate them prior to actually accusing someone of selling fakes.

    The sad part is that this seller has more than 1 'tester' of Antiheros, and also has similar fakes of other ELdO fragrances - perhaps to create an impression of 'credibility'.

    Can they mention that something's a tester? For some reason I think Ebay, in the UK at least, might take such listings down. Bit of a pain in the bum really as a seller might want to sell a perfectly fine tester but then there's the dilemma of either not mentioning it (apart from showing it in the pictures) or to mention it and then Ebay (with the help of eager Ebay informers?) shutting the listing down.

    On eBay: fatima_store

    A Russian Federation seller. They are selling fake Acqua di Parma and Jo Malone. Possibly others. They have these "original" and "authentic" color spectrum stickers that try to make them look authentic, but upon close examination of the labels you can see flaws. And this is why they don't take photos of the labels in clear view (they're always at an angle from above). In one case, they had the audacity to pawn off a bottle of Intensa in a black bottle/copper label combo from the Acqua di Parma line of Oud, Ambra, Leather, etc. Intensa only ever came in clear bottles. Plus the printing looked poor [Photo Link].

    If any seller offers a fake and adds copious content to assure it's authentic, everything else they sell is suspect.

    I've been running across alot of fakes between sellers with low feedback lately. Do you guys typically report these? I reported some but I don't know how much good it does.

    I report them as well. I've seen auctions pulled after reporting, so it does help. Always worth the extra minute to do it!

    Sai Holdings is legit, I've bought a bunch of different things from them over the last 3 years, all genuine and good.

    Does anyone here have any experience with the seller below? I noticed on this person's feedback page that many of the things sold are listed as "private", and I don't see why that would be the case with something as simple as cologne and perfume decants. Any thoughts?

    No experience with them, but I don't see private in the feedback, buyers seem to be listed as they always are?

    I mean the items being bought, where you can normally click on "view item". Instead a bunch of them are listed as "private" and you can't even see what was bought that the buyer is referring to. Which seems quite odd. Anyone have any idea why that would be the case?

    Sellers can choose to make their listings private. This seller obviously prefers that, for whatever reason.

    some sellers are drop ship sellers. They dont actually have the item there but when they get a buyer they "order" it from somewhere else and that somewhere else will ship it to the buyer. I hear some people make alot of money doing this. I bought a classic match polo bottle on ebay for like $8 and it came from amazon fufillment.
    As far as setting auctions to private I dont know why people do it but some do.I dont when i sell stuff.

    Yeah, I'm just wondering what logical reason there would be to do such a thing on so many of the sales for cologne and perfume decants.

    Weird. I see item listings as always up to 90 days at which point you never see them. I'm doing something wrong, but anyhow. I've never really understood the private thing, how it benefits a seller eludes me.

    Hi, does anyone have any experience or feedback with pink.deals on Ebay? https://www.ebay.com/usr/pink.deals?...72.m2749.l2754

    I purchased a few decants of Aventus from them only to have someone on the Aventus Batch thread vehemently accuse them of watering their product down. I get so much olfactory fatigue from Aventus it's hard for me to gauge it's authenticity though I found pink.deals to very communicative and helpful. They even sent me a new atomizer and another 5ml for free after my initial order leaked a little.

    A little late in answering, but should it help other members: Foreverlux and 1-perfumes are legit. (Foreverlux is a slow shipper though)

    Has anyone experience with seller mjdistributioninc2015?

    They exclusively sale used and new bottles (a lot, they have 500/1000 listings each time with "warehouse scratches and tears", without box, often without cap, but these are no testers. You can find a bestsellers, but also a lot of under the radar stuff. (probably not worth counterfeiting). They have 99.5%+ positive feedback.

    I bought a couple of times (legit stuff I think), but I ultimately became a little suspicious (batch codes purposedly scraped off, pliers marks around the base of the sprayer...), even though the smell seem ok compared to samples, but slightly weaker projection (watered-down?).

    Not sure where they source the stuff... burglary?

    Can anyone verify this eBay seller:
    ehsence (44,000+ rating with 99.4% positive). Jimmy Choo Man normally sells for about $90-100 for the 3.4 oz but this guy is selling it for just $37! Too good to be true or legit?
