How do I know if a website is selling a fake or authentic merchandise?

This is the most common question when buying authentic goods online.

As the Internet is polluted with fake websites that either steal your identity or sell you counterfeit goods for cheap.

Now a days because of online and the open market between countries. China and other countries have taken over the underground market of counterfeit pretty much everything can be duplicated today. Some can even be the same as real but use materials that can arm you and use cheap labor.
Also counterfeit items come in 3 qualities grades A, AAA and 1:1.

Sometimes websites advertise authentic goods but they are really selling a 1:1 grade good.

Most leather items are made from synthetic leather that is then painted that paint can be toxic and cause allergic reactions in some cases. When a Chinese wholesaler advertise authentic leather make sure you ask from what animal or material.

You have to be careful and buy only from a secure online source.
