I sold a Louis vuitton bag online. The buyer paid thru Paypal.

Customer Question

I sold a Louis vuitton bag online. The buyer paid thru Paypal. After she received the bag she said she didn't want it because she thought it was fake.
I declined, since the item is 100% authentic, I bought it from a LV store and it has the receipt, which I didn't send with the bag.
The buyer sent the bag back to me and she said her lawyer will contact me for fraud.
I can prove the bag is 100% authentic.
What do I expect from such a thing?

Good evening. I would stick to your guns. I would also report this to the online site through which you sold this. You are very likely to be the victim of a common scam here where they buy an authentic item, then switch it and claim that the fake one is the one you sent. I would send them a copy of the receipt and tell them if they want to pursue this legally, then "come on." My bet is that you will not hear from them again. If you do, contact your own attorney.



I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!
