More Tips

Educate yourself

Lets get on with it,first off, knowing what to look for is the first line of defense when learning how to spot fake Burberry scarves, and doing the research before hand will give you an incredible edge. Start by taking time to visit your local Burberry shop or outlet store and checking the scarves and there labels, this is very important. Burberry HAS factories in England & China, so if your scarf reads "Made in China" do NOT freak out - it may be legitimate!

Pricing

Burberry scarves sold at the "Official Burberry site" range in price on average between $225 to $750, so if you find one unusually cheap($60-$100), especially on eBay, that should raise a red flag. Another way to tell if you have or are getting an authentic Burberry scarf is to ask someone who is an authority about Burberry scarves, such as outlet store employees if your shopping at an outlet store, forums if your shopping online, eBay offer's an excellent forum with people that know their products and how to determine product authenticity. Simply post the item number with your concerns and it won't be long before you receive a thumbs up or down about your scarf. (See the Purse's Discussion Board/Forum).

eBay Sellers

If you are purchasing on eBay, make sure the seller has a track record of selling Burberry Products. A sure way to confirm an eBayer is selling fake Burberry scarves is if they are listing many of them. Most sellers do not have a large inventory of $400 Burberry Scarves! Also, if they have low or no feedback, then you are most likely purchasing a FAKE. The final way to tell if you may be purchasing a fake on eBay is the PRICE and LOCATION of the seller. If the price is too good to be true, it ACTUALLY is. Also, if the seller is located in Japan or China, you are guaranteed a fake Burberry Scarf!
