The previous operators of this website were found to be selling replica goods in violation of Federal laws. A Court ordered this domain name transferred to Chanel and Louis Vuitton and awarded damages of more than $1,000,000.00 against the website operators.

Replicas8.com once provided online shopping services through which people could buy replica designer wallets, belts, scarves, jewelry and watches. As I promoted itself as having been in business for five years and selling what it described as “top grade replica bags” and going on to boast that “some of them are genuine leather handbags.”

At least 20 styles of replica Chanel watches were sold on the website all at the retail price of $179, or the wholesale price (requiring the purchase of the least five)of $159. One such offering, Item No. 9643, was described as a “Chanel J12 Mens Chronograph Automatic with Ceramic Case Black Diamonds Dial Ceramic Strap Watch CN0016-E.” and was pictured with a black watchface measuring 40mm, white time hands and a black interlinked wristband.

Echoing the promises found throughout the site on the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)page replicas8.com said of their products than they were “7 stars mirror image quality.” And that “in the bags industry, only 7 stars mirror image quality product will be 99% the same as the real one.”

These claims are not unique and can be found repeated on practically every site on the Internet selling replica Chanel but the constant repeating of a lie does not make it true. There’s no substitute for quality, no shortcut to luxury, all that replica sites are selling our imitations of the genuine articles made as cheaply as possible with the cheapest materials possible. As one might guess having cost as one’s main concern does not produce the same excellents of good as when quality and craftsmanship are one’s top concern.

To prevent the operators of the site from continuing their criminal enterprise of taking advantage of people’s high expectations when they see the names Chanel and Louis Vuitton a case was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against this and other websites operated by the same individuals.
