Hello duong_cuong,

Welcome to the Bonanza Community!!!

If you’re uncertain of the authenticity of an item
being sold on Bonanza, we suggest first reviewing the seller’s feedback and asking as many questions as necessary before buying. You can easily contact the seller from an item listing page by using the “Send a message” button (under the “Add to cart” button). If you continue to have concerns, follow your instinct and do not proceed with your purchase. PayPal and Amazon Pay (both approved payment methods) also offer some buyer protection for online purchases, but be sure to check their policies before proceeding.

If you need additional support please email our support team and they will be glad to assist you further. [email protected]

Kind Regards

If a $499 bag is being sold for $19, it’s fake. If an individual seller has 2,000 bags of one model in stock, it’s probably fake. If an individual seller has 500 different models in stock, it’s probably fake.

After all, what individual has $100,000 of purses in stock, ready to ship?

Authentic Coach handbags should have the letters “YKK” on the zipper pull. Some may be found on the interior zipper but if it does not have that somewhere on the zipper, it’s most likely a fake. Next, you need to check the authenticity tag. Make sure all the letters are capitalized, in english and are spelled right

If the bag can be counterfeited, so can the zipper. and “authenticity” tag.

Any indicator that the bag may be counterfeit. This includes checking the stitching, material and leather tests, inspection of the stamp(s), hardware examinations, and other indicators that are specific to the brand and style of the bag. Any indictor that authentic parts of the bag have been tampered with.
