What to gift your dad on his birthday?
Now if you’re planning to gift your dad a man bag instead of a tie or cigar box on his birthday or Father’s Day then you have to think twice or thrice or atleast 10 times, as it may cost you a fortune.
In the days when the trend of cell phones was just set in motion, cargo shorts were quite a rage and tablets and iphones were in the pipeline, people sued to mock at those carrying man bags. However, this once- ridiculed satchel after a decade, is riding so high on fashion these days that it has turned out to a $9 billion industry.
Men are now avoiding lumpy pockets and even these days smart phones like those of Samsung are big enough to occupy a pocket, so men are now falling for man handbags. These are available at quite high end prices, especially after celebs like David Beckham and Roger Federer are spotted with such accessories.
Make sure you get a real deal
As we suggest you to spent a small fortune on luxury handbag to make your mom feel special this Mother’s Day, it becomes our duty to alert you about the scams around. Before you blow your wad on an expensive bag especially if you’re buying online, make sure the piece comes with a genuine tag.
From a recent survey it’s found out that online shoppers are now largely becoming the target of on-going ‘luxury’ handbag ripoffs. These days fraudsters are not only making replica bags like those of LV bags but they’ve recently adopted shrewd marketing strategies to exploit customers’ shopping habits.
Here is one such cyber crime that was busted –
“The indictment, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, describes a scheme, operated through a network of websites that purported to offer authentic luxury goods – primarily handbags – at prices of up to $3,000. The websites advertised that the items were discounted because of slight manufacturing defects “infrequently noticeable to the consumer.” Hundreds of consumers who purchased goods from the sites either never received them or got counterfeits.”
