I haven’t crush on the fake and I couldn’t understand how people see a fake handbag as a “bargain”. I’ve heard ladies around me say of a fake Saint Laurent, “it just the same as a genuine one and only cost about $600”. I didn’t think it is cheap for buying a handbag that is not real!

Recently, I have also read a new whose title is “Bad eggs: free range shysters exposed”, this new is mainly about two companies who allege and promoted their eggs as free range on social media, but actually they dupe consumers, as a result, the court agreed with the ACCC and fined the company $300,000 after finding some evidences.

It has no sympathy for an egg supplier fined by Federal Court for misleading buyers, some strict rules should be taken to reduce those dupe consumer phenomenon. But we all know it is not an easy problem that could be solved in a few days. You’d better learn more useful knowledge so as to prevent buying fake leather bag in our real life first.
