DONT GET CAUGHT LIKE I DID, AND THINK BEFORE YOU USE PAYPAL.
I purchased a sweetie bracelet for my partner, which was advertised on EBay by Monkey-jet.
He stated this item was 100% genuine, not a copy, and included all the Links of London boxes etc etc.
I made payment for this item via PayPal. (2nd mistake) as they gave me purchasing protection or so they say. (Mistake 3)
I was in conversation with a friend who also had a sweetie bracelet which was purchased direct from Links of London, and the difference is very apparent. As a result of this I contacted L.O.L direct and was told they were inundated with calls from people purchasing the said items via EBay for clarity if they were genuine or not.
L.O.L. went on to say EBay had chosen to ignore the request from L.O.L to pull these items from sale, and as a result L.O.L could no longer supply statements of authenticity.
I contacted PayPal after all they protect our payments...wrong... PayPal DO NOT protect your payments even though they say they do..
What they do is put a timescale on you THE INNOCENT party to gather the evidence of authenticity, and just sit back. If you do not get the evidence in time, you can appeal it they say....wrong....they say they do, but in my case, and for everyone else, even though I had given them a statement of authenticity that my purchase was in fact counterfeit from Monkey-jet PayPal said they were not interested and sided with the criminal.
EBay is just the same they do not want to deal with this criminal or others selling dodgy items to decent EBayers like you and I.
SO BEWARE: Monkey-jet sells counterfeit items.
Sweetie bracelets sold on EBay are not as stated, genuine L.O.L.
Although I now know the numerous differences between a counterfeit L.O.L bracelet, and a genuine one I will say no more, (so that EBay and PayPal cannot inform there criminal advertiser friends) other than L.O.L. do not sell bracelets with charms attached.
Besides this not only are the bracelets significantly different to the original one the charms are too.
The boxes etc marked L.O.L. are also counterfeit.
I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU ALL AS YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
