I have been selling Marni on eBay for five years already. It is awful and sad to see the surge of those counterfeit sellers here and a lot of good sellers have already left the market as a result. Even worse, a lot of good buyers left here too because they were fooled by these counterfeit sellers. As part of the little group who remains here selling genuine Marni, I sometimes run into situation when buyers question the authenticity of the items I sell and I hope to make a few notes to this issue if you are a new buyer to me:
1) Thanks to the recent effort of eBay in fighting against counterfeit sellers, these criminals cannot stay here as long as they used to be, and thus counterfeit sellers' account could hardly survive over 1000 feedbacks now.
2) I deal with Marni, Italy directly and I travel there six times a year. NONE of the items I sell come from the so-called factory, and NOTHING here is different from what you have seen in the Marni shops, plus it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to sell you a current season US$1,000 Marni dress or coat at US$99.99 or US$149.99.
3) I ALWAYS keep my original Marni receipts for all my stocks; and I buy Marni crazily and consistently that even the head office in Italy knows about me and have met me. Anything I sell could be traced back with the Marni head office to prove the originality.
I hope you all have a fun and safe eBaying experience.
