Hi! Can somebody help me authenticate my bag? I purchased it from OfferUp for $400, the lady is in the process of moving and was getting rid of her items. She claims the bought the bag for $900 from somebody online who claimed to have bought the bag from Prada, and gave her the Prada envelope that is missing the authentication card with the serial number/item description. I will attach as many files as I can. I already tried to take this bag into a Prada store to authenticate it, but they said they don’t do that service. There are some minor things that could point to it being fake, for example, I don’t know if the authentic bag has the “Prada Re-Edition 2005” in like a glittery-sparkly print, but mine does. The “Prada” logo on the straps is also thin and isn’t as blocky as the ones found on authentics. And on the front logo, the “Dal 1913” has no space, close up it says “DAL1913”. I also attached a photo of the envelope. Thank you! I can only attach 12 photos but I am willing to take photos of all the details if you need them.

So fake it hurts to look at. :yucky:

Can someone help authenticate this bag:

Item Name: Prada Black Saffiano Cuir Leather Medium Double Handle Tote
Listing Number: N/A but link attached
Seller ID: - The Luxury Closet
Link: - http://theluxurycloset.com/women/p...uir-leather-medium-double-handle-tote-p319601
Comments: I'm comparing this prada to the one on Prada's website and the red lining along the handles and luggage tag seems to be missing compared to the one on Prada's website. Is there a model with black stitching even though the lining is red? I've reserved this bag already, please let me know. Prada website link: http://www.prada.com/us/en/product...double_prada_bag.1BG775_2A4A_F0LJ4_V_OOO.html

Thanks in advance.

Because Prada, in their infinite WISDOM, have decided to make this style of readily, easily and believeably counterfeitable (is that a word?) bag, it is pretty well impossible to tell whether this is fake or not just from photos. May I suggest you raise your observations with TLC and see what sort of reply they offer. Personally, I wouldn't touch this style from any supplier other than direct from Prada.

Thank you so much. You're right, I'll raise this with The Luxury Closet.

Comments: Hi ladies, new here and hoping to get some initial thoughts on this bag. I've asked the seller for better photos, but she is out of town at the moment. Wondering if it's worth pursuing further or if the current photos already show obvious issues. Thanks so much for your time.

No obvious issues and I've not yet seen a brown fake of this style. Red, blue, pink, black yes, but never brown. I'm going with authentic for this one.

Hi Miss figgy
Sorry to disturb you is it because it’s hard to tell is fake or real because counterfeit looks so real for this model? I am a fan of this bag but didn’t want to buy a fake one. Do you recommend me to get professional authentication so I still can return it? Would appreciate your advise. Thank you so much.
