charlink Picture 6, how you can see these serial codes are F🅰️ke: 1. ‘Chanel’ line should be on the right side only, is here below and on top of the code. 2. Serial code should be black, not grey and the 0 is missing the strikethrough. 3. The 1 is missing its small feet. 4. ‘Chanel’ line should only be on right side and not on both sides, 1 is missing its small feet, the 0 is missing the strikethrough.

charlink 5. ‘Chanel’ line should be on the right side of the code, is here below and on top of the code. 6. ‘Chanel’ line should be on the right side of the code and on the left side there should be a black line, ‘Chanel’ line is here on the left side. 7. the 0 is missing the strikethrough, the 1 is missing its small feet, there is a ‘Chanel’ line under the code which should only be on the right side. ***These are all common mistakes in F🅰️KE bags!!***

escoqidapordios @charlink I have a supposed bag with a serial number starting in 102 can you explain why this is fake ? Thanks
Jun 27Reply
charlink
charlink @escoqidapordios do you have a picture of the serial number? If the 0 doesn’t have a strikethrough it’s definitely a fake. There’s also some known serial numbers for fakes like 10218184, is it this one?

alissavachula @charlink out of curiosity do you know about how long it takes for your listing to certify? I posted my chanel purse and it’s waiting for review :/
Jul 04Reply
charlink
charlink @alissavachula you’re asking how long it takes for the posh authenticate team to pass through the process after you sent them the bag? It mostly takes about 2-3 days for them to do that from the moment they receive it, inform you it’s authentic and send the bag along to the buyer!
Jul 04Reply
alissavachula
alissavachula @charlink no, I posted a bag on my poshmark. And it was flagged? I’m quite confused of why, and how long it takes for my post to be under review
Jul 04Reply
charlink
charlink @alissavachula oh, normally they only take down bags that are not authentic... are you sure of the authenticity? They sometimes also take down authentic ones by mistake, in that case you’ll have to send them an e-mail to appeal and then it should take them a couple of days to look at it and reply! If it’s authentic they should put the listing back up after they’ve approved the appeal...
Jul 04Reply
alissavachula
alissavachula @charlink okay. I can post it without the Chanel brand. But yes I am sure of authenticity. I bought my bag when I was assigned to my first duty station in Italy
Jul 04Reply
alissavachula
alissavachula I didn’t clarify, it allows me to post my bag without putting a brand on the post. But if I put it under CHANEL it flags idk
Jul 04Reply
charlink
charlink @alissavachula feel free to tag me I can always have a look 😉 They sometimes make mistakes and I’ve had authentic bags over mine taken down that later succesfully pass through authentication. Their whole system for reporting depens on random people’s judgement so really doesn’t work very well in a lot of cases 🙄🙄
Jul 04Reply
alissavachula
alissavachula @charlink okay I’m gonna re post without the adding a brand and I’ll tag you
Jul 04Reply
charlink
charlink @alissavachula yeah that’s something automatic though and can be triggered by other things like if you put it at a price below $500... normally it gives you an option to ‘certify’ the listing yourself where you just confirm it’s authentic and then you should be able to post! If that doesn’t work I’m afraid you’ll have to contact posh...
Jul 04Reply
charlink
charlink @alissavachula so yeah it gets triggered because of the price. Try seeying if you can actually click on ‘certify’ and if it then gets listed under Chanel, you can also try now changing the brand. If all this wouldn’t work then it’s best to contact poshmark!
Jul 04Reply
alissavachula
alissavachula @charlink thank you!! I’ll try for sure
Jul 04Reply
alissavachula
alissavachula I had to post it for 500. But that’s way too much. But I’ll get it figured out 😂

charlink @alissavachula you can also post for 500 and then drop the price right away if that works. Good luck!

kingmheather
kingmheather @charlink what happens when they sell them though? Doesn’t posh inspect over $500? Or is it cause they are selling cheaper? How reliable is Poshmark in authenticating?
Sep 01Reply
charlink
charlink @kingmheather almost half of Chanel bags that sell +$500 are fake but sellers don’t realize themselves. All those bags will get rejected by posh authenticate and the sale gets cancelled. Posh authenticate is very reliable! As a buyer you’ll get a refund eventually so you’re safe +$500, it’s just annoying because it happens a lot, if you don’t buy from a trusted seller, that the bag is fake...
Sep 01Reply
charlink
charlink @kingmheather There is a tremendous amount of fake Chanel bags in circulation, especially flap bags, boy bags... Many people buy elsewhere, thinking it’s real and they got a great deal, then they try to resell on posh. They only realize the bag is fake after it’s rejected by posh authenticate!
Sep 01Reply
kingmheather
kingmheather @charlink yeah. I am looking for a specific bag and see that some people have super low prices. It’s a red flag for me, but I feel bad for those who fall for it :-(
Sep 01Reply
charlink
charlink @kingmheather you can assume that anything below $500 is fake, definitely if you’re looking at bags in good condition. If you’re looking for anything like a flap bag or boy bag, anything in good condition for a low price is either fake or they are scammers with stolen pictures that try to get you to go off of the platform... too good to be true is always fake or scam! be safe! ❣️

mera0897
mera0897 @missdpagan hi thx for commenting. But if Posh check's authenticity how can it still be sold as an original? Can u help do u know what happens here. Thx
Sep 03Reply
charlink
charlink @mera0897 posh only checks authenticity AFTER something sells. Meaning people can post wathever they want on here and say it’s real when it’s not. It’s only after something sells above $500 and the seller sends it to posh HQ for authentication, that posh will see it’s a fake and will cancel the sale!
Sep 03Reply
missdpagan
missdpagan @mera0897 Yeap just like the posher said before me. It’s only after it’s sold for over $500 that posh authenticates it. However, if it’s under $500 they don’t authenticate and that’s when you run into big problems because the scammer would delete his/her account in hopes the sale just goes through and would then make another account. Another way to get scammed is by buying outside of posh.

tiffanywood1 I saw a teal Chanel bag from myfabthings today and they have the serial number blocked out. I asked the seller about it and they said they block it out because of scammers and counterfeit and a lot of other sellers block out the serial numbers as well. Which I have never seen This is crazy to me because for $5,000 I would want to research the bag and make sure it’s authentic I guess they didn’t like that response and blocked me from commenting anymore 🤷🏻‍♀️

itsmetam Hi do you know about authenticity of Burberry products like shoes and purses? I know some of the shoes are not over $500 retail so if someone sells them less than retail should the buyer e concerned about authenticity since it’s not priced in the $500 or more range? Thank you!
Jun 05Reply
charlink
charlink @itsmetam hi! I’m sorry but I don’t no much about Burberry… If you’re not able to authenticate it yourself, ir absolutely trust the seller, I’d be very carefull buying under $500 because there are so many fakes and scams on poshmark - definitely don’t buy below $500 from an account with no history and/or only 1 listing, those are mostly scams
