LV knockoffs or replica Louis Vuitton bags are everywhere these days, and as other reviews on this blog have shown some of them are so good it’s almost impossible to tell they are fake. Unfortunately, that is not the case with this replica LV Monogram Alma bag, and this Designerpurses.ru review will make it clear why.
Now the bag doesn’t look horrible at first glance, and is a replica that many first time buyers are happy to get because it somewhat resembles the authentic version. However to anyone with moderate knowledge of Louis Vuitton’s handbags it is obvious that there is a lot wrong, so if you’re wondering what’s wrong with this knockoff Louis Vuitton bag, and at the same time want to improve your “how to spot a fake Louis Vuitton” skills, this review is a must read!
This is a review received by email for pursemall.ru from a blog reader named Jill (pseudonym used to protect Jill’s real identity).
When I first received the review I visited pursemall.ru (which I have heard mentioned a couple of times by several blog readers in the comments), and was struck by the poor site design. That would be a red flag to myself personally while shopping, however it is easy for first time buyers to be so enamored with the idea of saving money on designer goods, that they would overlook this and shop on the site anyways. The price point of the bag is also another red flag that would have triggered concern from me because you usually can’t get good replicas at that low of a price point in my experience. Here’s Jill’s experience in her own words:
I have already warned you about Jessica of e8bags on the Scam Sellers page here, but it looks like her site domain name keeps morphing and is now e8bbag.net. Although the domain keeps changing, Jessica’s tactics do not. She keeps scamming people. One blog reader named Tracey just recently went through the headache of dealing with Jessica and has emailed in her experience. Here are some pics of the order she placed on the site:
Hello everyone! Sorry for being so M.I.A – I’ve had a really busy summer so far and had very little time to update the blog. Anyhow I am back now and boy oh boy do I have a great summer haul to share. My latest purchases include a Hermes 25cm Birkin, some Chanel, Chloe, Prada, and Celine (which is being featured in this article!). I will be updating the blog with all my reviews in the upcoming days and am super excited to share how awesome my latest replica purchases are.
So let’s begin with my latest Celine nano – I bought a tricolor nano from Counter Lux (their latest link is at www.counterluxury.cn). I was trying to be more “fun” so instead of getting a solid bag which is my usual preference I got the combination of olive/cream/black which is still quite neutral however the mixup of colors is enough for the bag to be considered “fun” in my books. Without further hesitation here is a pic of the bag:
I really LOVE the color combination on this bag. I have noticed a fair amount of improvements in the quality of the Celine Nano since the last time I purchase my black nano from Perfect Celine, including better stitching, form, sturdiness, and weight in terms of the hardware. The hardware on my old Celine nano (black) is much lighter in comparison to the new hardware and the new hardware just has a better look and feel overall. The bag is also a million times better than my first Celine replica which I had purchased a long time ago which looks utterly terrible when placed side by side with the new bag. I have taken pictures of all the bags side by side for you to feast your eyes on. So go ahead and take a look below:
I’ve been sharing a few email reviews throughout the past few days and I have a few more to add which have been shared by generous blog readers. This review was emailed to me by a reader name Rochelle. She shopped at chanelpurses.cn which seems to specialize in selling fake or replica Chanel handbags, and was not too happy with the experience. We all know buying Chanel replicas is about 10x more hard than buying your average replica since Chanel is very stern and keeps shutting down any replica sellers and that means there are many more scammers out there for this brand. Anyways here is the review I received:
Hi pursequeen I just found your blog and wanted to share an experience. I shopped with chanelpurses.cn because even though I have a real flap bag already (in caviar) I wanted a lambskin and can’t really afford the real thing right now due to a tight budget. I stumbled upon chanelpurses.cn and with all of the positivity on their site I was encouraged to try them out but boy oh boy do I regret my stupidity now. The ordering process was ok, no complaints there. My problem was when the package arrived I was SO disappointed because the purse (classic flap jumbo) had a quilting pattern was very off making it extremely visibly fake! The bag looked nothing like what they advertise on their site and the flaws are very noticeable to the naked eye. The ‘CC’ on the inside of the bag was also wierdly done. Threading was coming loose and there was glue and a huge scratch on the inside. VERY POOR QUALITY for what I paid!!!! The leather of the bag just screamed fake and cheap! When I tried to rectify the situation since the website claims “90 day return policy”but I have not received a response in 1 month since submitting this request. Definitely not a great company. I tried to post a few negative reviews on their site and guess what — they have to be “approved” so I guarantee you they are only posting positive reviews which is why you only see the good on their site. My sister Natalie visited Mandy’s blog for Chanel and she bought one from the site they recommended which is 1 million times better than what I got from chanelpurses … they should really just change their name to Chanel garbage. Really wish I had listened to her advice and just bought from there.
I hope nobody else falls for their tricks as I feel scammed and I thought I was a smart shopper. I will send photos once I am home from work.
It seems as if Rochelle fell for the classic replica trick: seller’s showing a certain set of photos and then sending a poor product that looks totally different. Thanks for sending in the review Rochelle, and if anyone else has had any experiences (good or bad) purchasing from this site please share below with the rest of us!
UPDATE: I got another bad review through email at the end of last month (August 2018). For the sake of your own sanity please do not consider shopping with them! Here is the original email I received:
I sent CHANELPURSESRU a Western Union of $850 dollars (four) purses over five weeks ago, lots of emails about it being sent already, then a tracking number that did not exist. I feel pretty stupid and wish I had checked your site before buying. Still have not received the purses and am pretty sure I never will. The only reason I believed they were legitimate was they send me a copy of a DHS tracking invoice from June with a name on it and I tracked the person down and talked to her and she said she got her bag and loved it. Did this company used to exist and now a scamer has taken over the website?? What else do you know about this website. Is there any way for me to report them except to you? Is there any way you could call me?
