Should've done my research on the seller before buying! Check out all the negative feedback on this seller & MALLERIES still lets them sell on their site....2HAUTE2HANDLE used to sell on ebay!

Original review posted by user Sep 07, 2013

I bought what I thought was an authentic Chanel purse & I received a knock off.I was insulted that the *** shop owner from 2HAUTE2HANDLE thought they could slip in a fake purse & I wouldn't know the difference.

Malleries has a 100% authenticity guarantee & they apparently screen shop owners before they are allowed to sell on MALLERIES, however I imagine that once the site manager gets comfortable with the shop owner and a few good transactions from them they slide through the system & get away with selling counterfeit items! I had to contact MALLERIES over 5 TIMES until I had Lauren, the operations manager, finally contact me. She took my complaint very lightly and asked for an authentication from a reputable authenticator. I do not trust online authenticators bc they cannot see or touch the bag physically so I took it to a consignment shop to have them authenticate that my purse was in fact not authentic & I had them write me a formal letter.

I filed a dispute with paypal & it seemed like it was taking forever so at the same time I had my credit card co file a chargeback and I got a provisional credit (still waiting for shop owner to try to dispute that, she typically responded within hours on my paypal dispute, however my credit card company has precedence over's been 3 days & she has 10 days to respond). I would be very careful if you are going to buy on this site! The manager didn't do jack for me...the shop owner's shop went from being a recommended seller on the 1st page of "Recommended sellers" to like the 7th...that's all they did, just knock her a few pages! Absolutely ridiculous!!!!!!!!!

While Pissed Consumer was not established to seriously damage legitimate businesses, the reality is that it often is exploited by some posters in such a harmful manner. We have used this multi-tiered litigation process to remove these false reviews and limit their impact on our clients’ businesses.
We have had success identifying anonymous persons that post false reviews on Pissed Consumer, naming those individuals in a lawsuit, and obtaining removal of the uniform resource locator (URL) linking to the offending content from search engines.
The typical process involved in identifying these anonymous Pissed Consumer posters is as follows:
√ File a lawsuit where the plaintiff is located;
√ Issue a subpoena to Pissed Consumer in New York requesting identifying information related to each URL where the false or fraudulent information appears;
√ Pissed Consumer will then notify its poster their identity is being sought, and give them approximately 20 days to respond; Pissed Consumer will produce the information related to each post (which typically consists of an Internet Protocol, or IP, address from which the post originated). √ How to Deal with False and Damaging Pissed Consumer Posts A common scenario involves a former employee becoming aware of a single negative experience by a customer. The former employee will use that experience to seemingly validate their false review, and he or she will publish varying accounts of that experience on Pissed Consumer under

I would never buy from Malleries again. I bought a vintage Chanel earring for $185 and it came in a cheap box wrapped in a Kleenex. The seller was Top vintage. It looked totally fake to me coz i have 1 piece that is real so I know. I wasted my money. Never again!

if you want a reputable site to buy from and put on layaway go to
They are amazing. I bought from them over 10 times now and i have no complaints. they might be a bit more expensive but it's worth it. No office but Malleries to me just looks like a cheap knockoff site in the way they present themselves. I'm not surprised this happens.

Sorry you had problems with Malleries but I do not understand why you do not trust an expert authentication site to authenticate your purse but you do trust a consignment store owner/operator. Authentication sites have trained experienced authenticators - A consignment store operator would not have the experience needed to authenticate. Your logic does not make sense.

Don't be sorry! Your logic doesn't make sense so find something better to do.

I beg to differ I have a consignment store' and I can assure you I can spot a fake almost immediatly if you have experience in looking at 100s of bags every week you do learn what to look for and in 6 years I have never been wrong,shop people only tend to know the brands they sell and at that mostly current styles not discontinued items.
I would never confirm a bag to be genuine by a photograph only once inspected.

I also was also sent a fake LV handbag in 2011. It's best to save up than buy second hand goods. There is always a few 'fakes' in the owners shop.
