The following is posted on an eBay review/guide by a seller who is irked because one of our Design Associates deemed a bag she was selling - fake.
DO NOT USE "authenticate4u.com" as they are a brand new UNreputable website that has not established a solid reputation and believe the authenticators (qualified or not) are also the same tPF members that suggest using them. There are other legitimate websites who give honest evaluations like the ones listed above who are NOT found to be affiliated with tPF members which makes them ebay/paypal qualified to give their opinion. While authenticate4u.com obviously cannot be considered as a "unbiased 3rd party opinion" and is brand new. So they have NOT yet established any type of reliable business rep so if your going to go as far as paying to have something authenticated, why spend any amount to have an obviously influenced opinion from an unreputable, unestablished, brand new online service who should not be qualified by ebay/paypal since evidence shows that they are NOT a TRULY unbiased 3rd party opinion who has been in business long enough for anyone at the purse forum to give their opinion.
I would like to point out that Authenticate4U.com are NOT a brand new website, but that we were founded in July 2010. We are also VERY reputable, and our documents are accepted by eBay and PayPal worldwide. This is NOT in doubt.
Our Design Associates (authenticators) MAY have authenticated on the Purse Forum, and some may still - BUT - the Design Associate who deemed the review/guide owners item fake - is NOT a tPF authenticator.
The guide/review goes on to list 4 Authentication Services who are NOT affiliated to tPF members. The guide/review is INCORRECT in its information - once more!
The fact that the statements made in connection with Authenticate4U.com are libellous is both annoying and frustrating. At Authenticate4U.com we strive to ensure that we provide a great service for our clients - and we go that extra mile for each and every one of them. We are a bona fide Service, with completely checkable references, and we are always able to speak with clients as and when they need.
In posting the information in this guide/review - I am merely wishing to point out that the facts therein are INCORRECT, they are LIBELLOUS and Authenticate4U.com have an EXCELLENT REPUTATION. We have NOTHING to hide, and we are happy to offer full disclosure.
What we DO object to is lies and innuendo - that is a lowball attempt to discredit us.
At Authenticate4U.com we will ALWAYS provide an honest Service - and we are an independently owned business and are a totally UNBIASED THIRD PARTY Authentication Service.
