The truth behind repchat and Newbagfactory.

UPDATE ON A NEW BLOG. WWW.REPBAGSCHAT.BLOGSPOT.COM

Hi everyone. My adsense on this blog got messed up. I try to fix it, but cannot, so I create another blog just like Rep Bags. I transfer all the posts and almost everyone's comments on the new blog. The new blog is called REP BAGS CHAT. Here is the link www.repbagschat.blogspot.com From now on please go to the new blog site for updates on reps and to post all your comments. I will only be posting on www.repbagschat.blogspot.com from now on. Sorry for the inconveniences.



        Hi, Everyone and thanks for visiting my blog. I use to be a member of repchat under the name Craftress and I was happy that I finally found a forum that welcome everyone to share their buying experiences of replica bags. Finally a place that people could exchange ideas and show off their replica bags. Nobody need to be invited to be a forum. Even if you have no fashion background you could contribute to repchat. I was sick of 'The Fashion Spot' always being one sided and needed an invitation to be included. It was so high school and only the popular people could join, while the rest of us sit on the sideline and read and be envies. I find it very hard to just watch and cannot contribute at all. Also the bitchiness and cattiness that goes on makes it hard for me to even considered joining that forum. Deep down I hope someday, someone could create a forum that talked about replica bags from ioffer sellers; Joy, Jacky, Catty, B&S, David, T&D. I searched and read on different websites to finally found repchat which is a forum that does exactly that, and no one looks down at you for buying replica bags. It was a dream come true. I felt so at home and wanted to share with them my purchases from ioffer.
        It's funny how that phrase you keep hearing makes sense now. "Be careful of what you wish for, it might come truth". Repchat is turning into TFS. All the cattiness and bitchiness start slowly, but it will come sooner or later. What proof do I have? Let me first start off with the incident from buying a bag from Newbagfactory.
       Around June 5, 2010, I contact NBF asking about their bag Vert D'eau part-time. This was my first purchase from Tom and Dom and I have no idea what to expect. I read on TFS that you could place bags on hold and when they have the leather they will make it. I check their status on ioffer and they have 99% approval ratings. I also read a lot of people on the fashion spot forum raving how their bags are soooo good and divine. I took a chance and placed an order and paid in full on June 8, 2010. Before I even paid I asked the boys, "How long will the bag be shipped?" Their answer was, "2-3 week". I said fine. If I knew it was longer I wouldn't have brought the bag at all. After three weeks had passed, I e-mail the boys asking about my bag and when will they give me a tracking number. My e-mail was left unanswered, so I email them again the second time in three days. Still no answer, I got frustrated and wrote on the repchat forum that the boys did not answer my e-mail at all. One of the members suggest contacting them on ioffer. So I did that and I was able to get them to answer me. T&D never got my e-mails and I said ok. I accept it and it turns out that there was a manufacturing problem with the product according to the boys. So I said fine at least now I know what is going on. The boys even offer to give me a free gift for waiting so long. I told them it wasn't necessary, but just send me my bag instead. A week passed by and I e-mail them about my bag again and they told me they sent it out already. They gave me a tracking number. For two days that tracking number did not work at all. I was angry knowing that the boys just gave me a tracking number to buy them time, so I wouldn't bug them. I e-mail them again asking them to be honest if they had sent out my bag. They told me that they did, they have no reason to lie and the tracking number should work that day at night. In other words, they never mailed out my bag and waited until I asked them about it, then they made the effect in mailing out my bag. So I waited and waited for that post office to deliver my bag. Only to find out online by checking the status that the bag was sent to Jamica, NY (I live in NYC). At this point, I was angry that I had waited this long and the boys wrote the wrong address. I wrote them a very angry e-mail asking them about my bag and how they have sent it to the wrong address. They didn't sound apologetic at all, but ask me to call the post office instead. I did call the post office which is useless. The post office would not release the package to anyone who doesn't have the correct address and it was up to T&D to do a corrective address form. I wrote an e-mail telling T&D what the post office had told me and they would double check the address and get back to me. I was upset that I waited this long only to find out that my package cannot be delivered because of a stupid address error. I  wrote a long post on repchat forum discussing my dislike with T&D and my bad shopping experience with them. Instead of being open minded they attack me saying I was lying and I did not know what I was talking about. I even sent them a link showing that my package was shipped to Jamaica, NY. One member named Lunabe contact the boys about my delivery status and found out that the boys didn't write the wrong address and accused me of lying in order to get a free bag. Lunabe have no real evidence to accused me except an e-mail written from T&D, nor did she show the link to where my bag was being sent to. Not once did Lunabe wonder if the post office might had read the address wrong and sent it to the wrong address. Instead, she just blame the customers. This makes me more angry, having been accused and before I could even prove myself, the administrator took her side and just banned me without any proof except an e-mail of T&D saying that they wrote the correct address. For one thing, it is wrong of Lunabe to butt in and ask about my personal information without my permission. It is none of her business. She also wrote on the forum that she had the e-mail saying she has information of my correct address and willing to share with anyone who ask. At this point I was very upset that Lunabe would display that information to the public. What kind of person would do that? Anyone could get my information and committed fraud. I contact T&D asking if they share my personal information with that woman. They denied it. My question is how does Lunabe knew about my correct address? I never disclosed that information on the forum. T&D was the only other people that knew about it. Someone is lying. Most likely Lunabe and T&D exchange words about it. I am soooo angry with the cattiness and bitchiness from these women which makes me sick to my stomach. Instead of admitting that she was wrong, she edited the forum so that my post and others had been deleted, so there are no evidences. My question is, why deleted it? If you have nothing to hide or think you are right why erase it? Only people who knows they are wrong would hide things. This is another Rebecca Minkoff incident that happened on TFS. A group of women trying to hide or cover up bad experiences in order to protect their favorite seller.

Here is the real proof. My bag was sent to Jamica, NY. It was later on return to china as undeliverable.
My bag was not the only one who's bag was undeliverable because of the address. Please read a few links from the TFS.

Finally after almost three months and a lot of headache I got my Vert D'eau GSH part-time, which T&D resent the bag.

Am I writing this because I am bitter and I was banned and want revenge? No, I could careless about that. I would never waste my time on a forum that is one sided and just try to cover up things so they could look good. I am just upset with the administrator for taking sides and not hearing both side of the party. That forum has no democracy, only dictatorship. And one thing I hate most of all besides flaky people are people who call me a liar and have other people see me as that. Which I cannot stand for. I would do anything to show people the truth and protect my reputation. I have nothing to hide.

In the meantime, my search for an unbiased  rep bag forum continues. A place where anyone could share their feelings about the different replica sellers and not be tear apart and looked down upon for voicing their opinion. When people are too afraid to voice their opinion how do you expect people to find a great seller? I have no choice but to do my reviews of my rep bags on this blog and share with anyone who wants to read my reviews on Joy, Catty, B&S, Jacky etc. Maybe one day when I do have enough people interested I would create my own forum and I could guarantee you I won't ban anyone or delete post without good reason just to save face. I hope that one day women could put aside their cattiness and bitchiness and work together to find the best rep bags in the world. Then again, I wouldn't hold my breath.

  1. hi, thanks! talking about unbiased rep forums, hope we can find one... check this out http://allwomenstalk.com/louis-vuitton-replica-handbag-sites-review/comment-page-5/#comment-595643 - i thought this was useful, apparently replicavalley.com, replicavision, replicapot, sofia nolan, eva knox are of the same address and not to be trusted... read all the posts and judge for yourself, maybe this can be another resource for everyone :)

  2. Hi, Thanks for letting everyone know. I was going to write about sofia and all her websites in the furure to warn people. I knew who she is from the moment she kept talking about replicapot, and all her other websites look the same and how great it is. My theory is always read any forum/blog you can get your hands on everything about the seller and make your own judgement if you want to buy from them or not.

  3. I couldn't agree with you more about trying to find an unbiased forum, Craftress. It almost seems like trying to get info about the Big "J" is guarded too strongly...like some kind of secret society/soriety. I can understand protecting the anonymity of the vendors/sellers, but geez. I've had a brief glimpse at "J's" website (of course, that was way back in June 2010 and I'm sure it's changed by now). And when I saw what the person was selling, I thought, "This is what the fuss is all about?" Meh. But it would be nice if someone could put together a website free of the hypocrisy and exclusivity. Just my 2 cents.

  4. Hi and welcome to my blog. Thanks for taking the time to comment. I was hoping to create a forum in the future that serves that purpose, if more people are interested. For the time being, this blog and allwomentalk will just have to do. As for the Big "J"'s website, I have a very hard time believing that a certain group of women wants to shut his website and only his site and not Joy's or Catty's. Like women do not have anything better to do than wasting time to track him down and shut his website. What makes his website so special? I think "J" just purposely shut his own website down, when he is getting too many visitors on this site, so the FEDS won't be suspicious. It could be a selling tactic he uses to attract more customers, "You want something more, if it's harder to get". To be honest with you "J"'s reps is not always 100% perfect. This bags are a hit or miss, according to the women on TFS.

  7. Hi there, Craftress!

    I guess I should begin this by disclosing that I am a happy member of Repchat, just so that everything is out in the open.
    And second, I'm very sorry for the craziness that you endured with T&D. I certainly think they could have done better, but in their defense on one point, you say that "For two days that tracking number did not work at all. I was angry knowing that the boys just gave me a tracking number to buy them time, so I wouldn't bug them. I e-mail them again asking them to be honest if they had sent out my bag. They told me that they did, they have no reason to lie and the tracking number should work that day at night. In other words, they never mailed out my bag and waited until I asked them about it, then they made the effect in mailing out my bag."
    In my experience with tracking numbers, ESPECIALLY when you're buying from overseas, they take a few days to get from their system (EMS or what have you) to USPS. Now, obviously I'm not USPS, so I can't tell you for sure, but it's something to at least consider.
    Now, I've never ordered from T&D, nor do I even particularly care for Balenciaga bags, so I have no stake in defending them, but I felt I'd mention that just to be fair.
    The incorrect address certainly is unacceptable, though.

    Concerning the protection of "J" and all the mystery around him... well, I think you're partly right. It is a bit about the whole "secret society" mentality, but I personally don't have a problem with it. I contributed my hundred (or so) posts of substance and in return I was given access to some VERY good sellers. I think this is a great way to prevent people from joining up in the forum and only taking, taking, taking, and never contributing back to the community by giving reviews, posting pictures or what have you.
    You said that: "Like women do not have anything better to do than wasting time to track him down and shut his website. What makes his website so special? I think "J" just purposely shut his own website down, when he is getting too many visitors on this site, so the FEDS won't be suspicious."
    Lol. Yeah. Most women aren't crazy enough to sit around and search for Rep sellers to put out of business, but there ARE some crazies on the Purse Forum who DO want to do that. And yes, J DOES shut the site down himself every few months, and YES, I definitely agree that it's to avoid the Feds and wider public scrutiny, but so what? It's kept him in business for a while.
    And no, J's reps aren't always perfect, but he DOES make a damn good Chanel and some beautiful LV as well. No rep seller is perfect, but J is definitely one of the best given his open communication, timeliness, the quality of (most of) his work and other good business practices.

    Regarding cattiness and bitchiness, well... no, there isn't any excuse to be a bitch. But unfortunately, large groups of women whose primary focus (or should I say, the primary focus of their gathering) is something superficial like handbags and shoes, are going to have a few bitches from time to time. It happens. That's life. I would certainly have to disagree if you're saying that ALL the girls of RepChat are catty and that we all have some hivemind mentality, because we don't. I try to be helpful and supportive of all my fellow rep buyers, as I expect them to be toward me. You just kinda have to take the bitches in stride and move on. There's a few bad seeds in every group.

    Sorry for my long winded post, and I certainly don't mean any of it with unfriendliness or disrespect. I simply had to defend my girls and myself over at Repchat. :)

  8. Hi and welcome to my blog. I am happy that you have a great experience with repchat and you were able to obtain the secret shopping list. I read all your points and understand that it might take a few days for a package to be register in the system, but the dates don't lie. The date tells when the package was first scan in the system to be sent out. I did mention that once I complaint to T&D that's when my confirmation code started working. Coincidences?

    You are right that I shouldn't had said that all women on repchat are all catty and bitchy, which I didn't say that. I use the word "these women" not "all women", please read my post again. No one in repchat spoke out about my bad treatment except for one member and I would one day like to thank her for that. As for taking in stride when dealing with a few bad apples, it is hard to do that when that bad apple is the moderator and she is trying to hide the truth and erase my post. Basically, there is no win-win situation for me.

    If you want to see how great your experience really is, why don't you start disagree with the moderator on their favorite seller. Lets see how they treat you afterward. I am not trying to be mean as well, but just my honest opinion on this matter. I am glad that you spoke out and I do not take your post as disrespect at all. You have every right to voice your opinion and I'm glad that you can do that here. If you were on repchat, you would never be able to do that. That is another problem I have with repchat. I wish you the best of luck on repchat and come visit my blog if you have time.

  9. Hi- what is Jacky's site? If you feel uncomfortable posting it please send it to

    Appreciate it and laudable goals!

  10. I have a question. How do these "great" sellers even KNOW that you're gonna get a "mirror" replica when the manufacturer is in China and for the most parts, these sellers do business using dropshipping, i.e. you order through Sellers then Sellers place order to Manufacturers who then send you the bag straight from China (why do you think it take so long to arrive?). I think I would only trust that the Seller is "great" IF he/she has an inventory of the bags on hand as opposed to merely dropshipping. I'm still looking for the elusive Seller =)

  11. Hi craftress. I accidentaly came across your site via a google search for NBF, and I'm glad I did. I am a member of rechat - I had no idea there were other such forums besides thebagforum let alone a repforum. I found repchat from ioffer where I have bought a few items and had some good luck. I do buy B bags and love them dearly but cant afford to buy the auth one right now so I opted to find the best rep I could hence NBF. As for repchat I am only interested to get other opinions on these bag details as I am not an expert on what look for in terms of colour, seasons, hardware etc. I am not interested in the "highschool" stuff that they talk about etc., as for some of the other sellers that they are so secretive about I don't see the biggie as it will only help the seller attain more sales. Sorry about your bad experience with NBF. I can only say from my experience that I luv the boyz and will continue to do more business with them as the quality of their bags is outstanding.

  12. Hi craftress. I also accidentally came across your blog via google search. I have find also repchat and sofias all via google.

    I did all this google search, trying to find a seller of a good chanel replica. Its my first time in replicas bag and I want to be careful.

    I like very much your blog and I think it is a good idea to make a forum.

    I read here and in repchat that good chanel bags has Jacky. I cannot find his mail or his site. Please can you send me his site? I'll send my email in your mail and if you want you can reply me.

  14. Hi kimoula and welcome to my blog. Jacky just change this website and I do not have the updated one. He often do that. If you want a great rep on chanel, please read my post on "Tips on not being scammed when buying from ioffer." It should help you.

  15. "Hi,

    I was also a member of Repchat and I defended you when the T&D shipping thing blew up and I even contacted the Mods and said that its was unacceptable the way they tried to shut up over over your experience. They told me that you were that Nolan woman from Replicapot. I didnt buy that..
    I recently cancelled my membership there because of some snotty PM's I was receiving and also because of the two-faced-ness regarding T&D. A member there was told off by T&D and she was complaining about it, and other women were complaining that they hadnt received their bags or the bags they received were in poor condition, but nobody censored their posts like yours were when you told us about your issue. I think a Mod should be impartial but the Bal mor there certainly wasnt."

    Hi, I am so happy you found my blog. I never got a chance to say Thank you for defending me. If you can drop me an e-mail, I want to ask you something if it's ok. craftress@yahoo.com Hope to hear from you.

  16. "jennycassis has left a new comment on your post "The truth behind repchat and Newbagfactory.":

    talking about deleted posts that you were upset about craftress here?, i see that you deleted XXXX that was here a few days ago huh?... i was following this blog cuz I think you were not going to be deleting, but you did. a bit hipocritical. i have been asking since day 1 what B&S and catty post is, and you hstill not answer me why not. u as bad as being secret as tfs..



    Posted by jennycassis to Rep Bags at November 3, 2010 2:31 AM"

    Hi Jenny, I didn't delete her post at all. I re-posted it and remove her name, because the person asked me too. She was being harassed by other members from repchat. If you follow my blog like you say you do, B&S and catty's has already been posted by other people who comment on my page. I have people constantly asking me the same question and all they have to do was just read. How hard is that? All you have to do was spend 10-20 mins reading the comments and you should find it. Before you call someone a hypocrite, learn the facts first and stop judging people.

  17. "hiya - thanks for the headsup. but really who cares about repchat or sofia? not me, and its up to individuals whether they do or not they do, as xxxx and craftress have said it was not for them
    so back to the real questions do you recommend not buying from nbf in the end? i would continue to choose to only visit here if you just posted about the bags and give the seller details please."

    Hi and welcome to my blog. I already answer that question on post title "Balenciaga Vert D’ Eau Part-Time in GSH Review". Please read it and you could find the answer.

    ReplyDelete
  18. i did read and there is no post for B&S - why not just answer instead of answering with no direct answer? not helpful at all. on the other thing, you are just as bad then, you are editing other peoples post - duh! that's like censoring anyways.just a bad as deleting no better. u dont get it, do you and i think repchat must be right - you must be sofia the scammer... so yes you are a hypocrite and i stand by my words even though you edited it - you are a hypocrite.... ps: i am keeping a copy of this post in original form in case you edit me again....i'm be sure to repost it until i ASK YOU to edit my post.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Jenny, Do you know what the word "harassed" means? It means being pick on and intimidating a person. So if someone who posted a comment on my blog and she being picked by members of repchat, because of this. I have every right to censor the name and protect that person and because she asked me to. I wrote on my blog and please read and I quote, "I could guarantee you I won't ban anyone or delete post without good reason just to save face." This is good reason to edit her name because she was being bullied. I didn't delete anything else besides her name. If you do not know what happens in the USA for the passed month, go check out cyber bullying. A 18 year killed himself because he was bullied and there are many more.

    If you still believe what the people at repchat is saying by all means keep on believing. If you are smart enough all you have to do was think. How will I benefit by deleting or editing that post. Since that post was something positive about me. Wouldn't I delete a negative post about me. If you say that I am sofia than when did I ever ask anyone to shop at her website? Keep on posting on repchat and maybe when you reach a thousand post and just maybe they will decide if you are special enough to get that shopping list then you could get B&S website. Good luck and nobody twist your arm to come to my blog. I am not being mean, I am saying it as it is.

  20. Jenny, I think you owe Craftress an apolog because I am the person who asked her to remove my Repchat username from my previous post. I received two emails from girls who had seen what I said and I havent got time to deal with more emails from disgrunted repchat fans.
    If you need proof of this I can even forward you the email which shows the date and dialogue between Craftress and myself which shows that I requested it and she kindly did what I asked.

  21. ok girls, i am sorry truly, i did not know that anon asked to be edited - please accept my sorry for the crazi comments. no excuse - i got red mad that u edit my post without me asking. sorry for being angry i was angry at my post being censored. and i thought if u edit than wht is the truth? i only want to know B&S and noone provides still. :(
    why do people harass u. i do not understand at all. is this true, how can i know this to be true?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well it is true! People harrassed me because I spoke out against their beloved repchat. How can you know its true? Well unless I give you the password to my email account, you cant know. Craftress didnt edit anything from my comment EXCEPT my name! Dont you understand that?
    What more do you want? You were wrong, you said sorry and now its over.

  23. omg y - i cant believe your overreaction to my question. go take a chill pill, evening primrose or massage which works. AND i have no proof i was wrong, i am NOT saying i am sorry for being wrong. i only say sorry for my anger which was becoz I WAS EDITED. you seem very touchy - like to pick fights even with me - i was nto even talking to you!!! well no wonder you feel 'bullied' - if you even think i am bully you, get a life - its only bags.

  24. Jennycassis,

    You are clearly here to cause trouble. The other poster only clarified that she asked the blogger to remove her name, and yet you are still asking if its true.
    Now you have even resorted to being rude to everyone. If its only bags, why are you causing trouble here. Maybe you are Sofia Nolan.

  25. Ok.. Ok.. ladies, it's over and done with. Lets all calm down and have a nice weekend and forget about this incident. When we come back from our weekend we will all be refresh. No point in arguing about this. It's very silly. Lets just leave it at that.

  26. I just found your blog and I sympathize with you. I think a lot of times people get into groups and play favorites, which looks like what happened in your situation. If what you described really happened, that is just plain wrong.

    I'm a member of repchat, but I'm still a "newbie". I totally feel you on feeling like you are on the sidelines.It seems a few regulars post in the regular topics, but that most of the regulars probably get most of their posts on the secret boards. So it is a vicious cycle to try to get your 100 meaningful posts, especially if you have no clue where to shop and buy bags to do reveals and reviews.

    It does at times feel like high school, where there is a popular crowd and if you're not part of the group, you have to kind of fit in where you can. I also don't understand the "Jacky" secret. I just now figured out his new site without the "secret" board. I guess it makes people feel part of the group?

    Hi and welcome to my blog. I am happy that you were able to get the Jacky's website without having to deal with the drama on repchat. I guess I feel like a rebel and trying to change things here. Hopefully I can and people shouldn't be afraid to speak out.

  28. Hi. I have come across a site called Replicahandbagpro. Can someone tell me whether to go with them or Fabaaa please? This is my first foray into replica handbags and, like everyone else, I dont want to throw my money away. Thanks.

  29. Hi, just wanted to warn everyone about CHICREPLICAS. From my experience with them, they are hit or miss. The photos they post do not represent the bags they sell as most photos are copied from the LV official site. Also, if you have a problem with a bag you receive from them and want to return it, you are out of luck. They don't respond to you if you want to return. They fool you into trusting them because customer service is great until you have a problem/return. Then it's the big fade out. Don't want anyone else to lose money like I did. - Alexis

  31. Rep CHat is a huge SCAM ladies!
    I was a member of repchat too Mellisa aka LAdy Red(admin of repchat.com) is a compulsive liar.
    I bought one time bag from her where she listed as NEW UNUSED and the one I got was used and had broken zipper I emailed her about the problem and she didnt even try to help me out with it.Also Beware because she sells her fake bags( mostly louis vuitton )on ebay as a real thing. Her ebay username is spiderpig07 i think. Google it and see yourself.
    And yes. Repchat is now a paid forum!Its close to 12 dollars for their membership.
