A new breed of counterfeit, called the ‘superfake’ is nearly impossible to distinguish from the real one, but is still a whole lot cheaper.

Typically a knockoff designer handbag has telltale signs like shoddy sewing, cheap hardware, or crooked logos.

A new breed of counterfeit, called the ‘superfake’ is nearly impossible to distinguish from the real one, but is still a whole lot cheaper.

For example, an authentic Chanel bag will set you back about 5 thousand dollars.

Cheap fakes can be had for under 50 bucks, but a high-quality replica carries a price tag of over 500 dollars.

How any one specific superfake came into being is hard to tell, but some of them are believed to be stolen from the designer’s factory supposedly as damaged goods.

Others may have been made there, but likely during the off hours and without the knowledge of higher ups.

Make no mistake, they’re still illegal to sell.

Those who’ve ventured to look for one report the process as being one that involves a lot of walking down deserted side streets and perusing merchandise behind locked doors.

If the cloak and dagger means of acquisition sounds worth it you may want to consider where that money goes.

Funds earned from selling counterfeit bags have been linked to organized crime and terrorist groups.
