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.
I'd like to point out a few things with regard to our Contract of Service.
When a client contacts us and requires a Service, they are required to pay in advance. Once this is received, along with the relevant information and photos, we set to work by collating the details and sending to our appropriate Design Associate.
We have, unfortunately, found that one of our Design Associates has been admitted to hospital very unexpectedly and is undergoing surgery. We wish her well. However, given this, its rather difficult for her to evaluate any items at present.
Been lazy in posting - but will promise to keep more up to date!
We have been fortunate to add some new Design Brands to our repertoire - please see our website for details.
We can now authenticate L.A.M.B. - bags/purses/shoes and clothing.
We are delighted to be able to offer this popular Design Brand to you.
We can also now authenticate the following favoured Shoe Brands -
So, we can now help you to put your 'best foot forward'!
We were asked today - 'Are your authentications guaranteed?' Our reply - as with everything in life - NOTHING is completely guaranteed. However, we would like to point out that each of our Design Associates has years of experience, have in most cases, a large collection of their chosen Design Brand, and several others! Are very much ANTI-FAKE, and as such - we have the utmost confidence in their abilities.
Authentication by photographs IS possible, and that is why when we receive a request for authentication/evaluation, we ensure that we are given the BEST photos possible, taken in good natural light, and showing each and every one of the important points of the item - We may seem anal at times - but it is this which ensures that we are giving the best Service possible.
