Over the years, we identified countless scammers selling realistic fakes and saw a major need in the market to help prevent and protect shoppers and sellers alike. We offer services directly to the public as well as partner with the top resellers and selling platforms around the world to verify brand authenticity. Real Authentication Reviews reflect the rigor and care we take into verifying the authenticity of each item.
My journey into the secondhand market started in 1999 when I opened my eBay account. One of my first purchases was a vintage Louis Vuitton bag. To this day, I still have the bag as it’s a reminder of my journey right from the start. eBay played a huge part in my journey to Real Authentication within the realm of the secondhand market. The idea of being able to support myself with finding thrift items to sell on eBay for a higher price gave me the scene of empowerment and independence. It also led me into my first real job as an eCommerce editor which turned into a longstanding career in luxury authentication.
In selling so many items on secondhand market sites, I needed to make sure I was selling authentic items so I had to do my research. At this time there weren’t any companies that offered what Real Authentication offers today. For me, what I love about Real Authentication the most is that I get to pass on that sense of empowerment and confidence to know what someone is selling is real.
With a background in Business and Fashion Merchandising, I was exposed to the dark side of the fashion industry early on. I was shocked to learn about counterfeiting, the black market and sweatshops funding criminal activity and human trafficking. I began my career working with fair trade organizations and felt a deep connection and sense of fulfillment in helping to prevent unfair trade practices around the world. I fell into the luxury space by chance, and much like Anastacia, my entrepreneurial side took hold when I saw just how lucrative flipping luxury goods could be.
I quickly learned that in order to buy and sell, you have to be absolutely certain the item is indeed authentic. From there, I made it my mission to master the art of luxury authentication. Anastacia and myself have surrounded ourselves with the top experts in the industry and created a collaborative environment to study and document luxury trends from vintage to current. It gives me the highest sense of appreciation to know that since launching Real Authentication, our platform has only grown to be stronger and more effective with time.
We believe in building a better world where we take care of our customers, partners, and team members. Reviews sometimes reflect a backlash of scammers trusted with our process. Real Authentication aims to protect designers and creators by supporting and empowering entrepreneurs in the secondary markets and elevating initiatives that aim to stop the crimes associated with the luxury goods counterfeit industry.
