****We no longer provide email authentication for the following bags from the from the 15 million series (8 digits long) and beyond due to the proliferation of Super Fakes circulating on the internet and secondary market:

– GST and PST
– Wallets and Wallet On Chains
– Entire Boy collection
What are Super Fakes? Super Fakes are counterfeit bags and accessories that are almost perfected by the counterfeiters and are very difficult or almost impossible to authenticate online based on pictures alone. The only proper way to authenticate Super Fakes is through physical inspection where we can feel and smell the material. For these bags, we can only do physical inspection. See pricing below for physical inspection. However, physical inspection is not always possible or convenient to do. We can only do physical inspection for U.S. clients.
Some limited edition bags are very highly counterfeited and we may not be able to authenticate them via email /photos only.
We do not authenticate sunglasses, glasses, and watches.
