    Default HELP! Bought Creed on Groupon, Did I Get Scammed?

    Hey folks! First post of many. Appreciate your expertise and help.

    I bought a 3.3mL bottle of Creed Aventus through a Groupon deal, sold by a vendor called Avenue A.

    Lot is 20B11 but the weird part is no ďnĒ which I seem to always find appended on Google. I have pictures attached, havenít opened box yet. They donít seem to allow returns, so hoping you can help verify before I take this fight on.

    I'm no expert, but from your photos it seems OK to my eyes. Hopefully you have recourse to return it should you feel the need.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Mainly concerned about the lot number missing an “N?”

    I should have just asked real or fake. I can’t tell. Is this a fake?

    It is fake my friend, return it.
    You should not be able to see white on the edges of the box.
    Also it doesnt look like it has much texture.
    Unless i am mistaken, the photos dont reveal too much, but i am pretty certain. Did you open it?
