I nearly bought a fake and decided that if people were paying £400 for second hand ones why would I have been so lucky to get a *new* one for £260. I went into the Mulberry shop and compared and found that the handles on the fake were 2 as thick and made of harder material than the real bag. However apart from that the fake looked exactly the same. I had not paid for the item as the seller wanted to circumvent ebay and this again raised my suspicion as why would you happily send an expensive bag to a total stranger without first receiving payment. Thirdly, the name of the person looked doggy and only had limited feedback. There are a lot of people walking about with fakes and dont realise.
