DarkClarissa, your first link does not seem to work as it says, "Your search returned no hits."
Anyway, n.hidayah, yes, I have been scammed a few times. The last two times were this past summer, and I was actually just testing two sellers online (on Ebay) to see if they they were selling authentics or not. I enjoyed doing it, for the most part, although it was a bit of a hassle. And I say that because after finding out both of these sellers sold me fakes, it took a while for the whole process to go through so that I was finally able to receive my money back. But still, I felt quite glad that I was able to take two sellers down. It's my way of sticking up for the little guys (so to speak) who really don't know any better.
Both of these sellers had 100% feedback, but regardless of this fact, I still knew that relying on what other people said wasn't exactly a reliable source, and in actuality, meant absolutely nothing. I knew this then, but it was only more confirmed afterwards, when both of these bottles turned out to be fake. Yet, people had left both these sellers all kinds of glorified feedback, without realizing at all that what they had actually bought were, indeed, fakes.
I posted pics of one of the counterfeits I received on an older thread (it's a bottle of Coco Mademoiselle), however, I am unable to remember what that thread was called. Or perhaps the person who started the thread has since deleted it. But if I happen to find it, I will post the link here for you to have a look at it, as well as to have a look at one of the counterfeit bottles they sent me.
I can somewhat understand how others were not able to tell their bottles were fakes, but at the same time, one shouldn't go and buy a pricier (and more popular) fragrance online without first knowing what it smells like... Doing this is like asking for trouble, and buying in ignorance. In other words, it's best to do your homework on it first.... find out as much as you can, and certainly smell it first, especially the more popular the perfume or brand it is.
