This is just a quick one for all you Ebayers,when purchasing Prada shoes especially the one listed as "America's Cup" style that originals are a size larger than normal so for instance if your a size 8 you will be size 7 in these shoes.When you ask the genuine sellers they know this however you hardly find it mentioned in any listings and sellers will reply "I'm a size 8 and they fit me fine"i think not they are fakes then, to be honest most Prada shoes are a size up regardless of design so ask as many questions as you want if you don't like or don't get any answers then don't buy, a genuine Ebayer will be only happy to supply further pictures for you if your not 100% sure. Have a good look at the finish on them because sometimes it's a giveaway with the cheap fakes and some listings have generic pictures, why? Some Prada shoes dependant on year on make come with the Prad symbol stitched into the insole but not all.Be vigilant and if your not sure then i will help all i can.
UPDATE JULY 2008:
If you get stung with fake shoes/goods and you pay by Paypal then YOU will have to supply a report from a recognised Dealer/Retailer of the Fake item stating that it has been inspected by them and it is indeed fake, this has to be faxed back to them in a short timescale and the cost (if any) paid for by YOU a cost that Paypal will not refund back to you only when they receive the report will they make a decision on the claim. PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT YOU MUST NOT SEND FAKE ITEMS BACK TO THE SELLER IF YOU HAVE OPENED A DISPUTE WITH PAYPAL, they advise you to destroy the goods and then fax a signed statement to confirm this then you will get your money back. I know this because it happened to a relative and it was not the easiet process in the world.
JUST WATCH WHAT YOUR BUYING AND DON'T LET THE CROOKS GET YOUR CASH
