Hello Cags,

My fiance purchased a Louis Vuitton bag from their flagship Bond Street store in London. The day after purchasing she noticed an odd scuff mark (not caused by her) on the inside top lining of the bag and on close inspection the paint is revealed to be noticeably peeling off in an area of around 1 cm square.

 

Not knowing her rights she approached me a couple days later with the issue and I took a look and believe that this item was sold to her defective and that she should be entitled to a full refund under consumer law. She was not afforded the opportunity to inspect the item upon purchasing as they gave her a sealed boxed item to take away. She paid using her debit card unfortunately. A week after purchasing she attempted to return the bag to the store only to be told by the store manager that 'the bag is worn and cannot be returned under Louis Vuitton guidelines'.

 

We immediately sent a letter requesting a replacement/refund under UK consumer law. No reply for 2 weeks and we sent a letter before action with legal threat. My fiance had a phone call and Louis Vuitton refused to give refund however they have offered to send the item to their Paris Quality Control team for checking - however no possibility was given for a refund or replacement.

 

We gave them a deadline of Friday 26th November after which time we have threatened legal action. They have 4 days.

 

Do we need to hand the bag over to them for 'quality control checking'?!?!?! What madness is this!? I am guessing it's just a run around.

 

Please advise.

Hi 99point

 

Contact your Card Provider, ask to carry out a Chargeback. Amend the following template (scroll down, select the correct one), send it Recorded Delivery. Time limits apply, the ones in the link are wrong, it's 120 days.

Chargeback isn't enshrined in law, the Card Provider will contact Louis Vuitton, lets see what they say.

 

SOGA 1979 (amended) applies.

Let us know what they say.

Why wouldn't you hand the bag over to be checked for quality control? Staff in the store wont know the difference between damage caused by you and damage caused by poor/faulty workmanship. Thats like asking a car garage receptionist to investigate the knocking in your engine bay. She is a receptionist, not a mechanic. I would send the bad off recorded and see what they say. But that's just me. In court, if you actually take it that far, you would be used to wipe the floor with as they have offered to inspect it and you have effectively refused.

My initial thought when they asked us to drop the bag off to be sent for 'quality checking' was that it was some form of trickery. Because... if we don't give them the bag and bring them to court they can say 'well Louis Vuitton offered to inspect the bag and the purchaser said no'. And we get chucked out.

And yet even if we send it all the way to Paris at additional postal expense to us they can turn around and say 'this bag was damaged by the owner' which again leaves us in a difficult situation!

And at that point where they say its your fault, you then send it for your own independent assessment and if that's finds in your favour then send a copy of it along with a letter asking for an amicable resolution. Failing that, I would then start the lba and court. Out of interest, what the rough value?

Tell them that you will bring the bag back for an exchange and they can then spend as long as they want staring at it.

Ok - I'll draft the chargeback letter tonite and hopefully we get some kind of response from the bank as soon as possible.

 

Contact your Card Provider, ask to carry out a Chargeback. Amend the following template (scroll down, select the correct one), send it Recorded Delivery. Time limits apply, the ones in the link are wrong, it's 120 days.

So it's 3 weeks since we sent a chargeback letter recorded delivery to Barclays and no reply.

I am considering sending Barclays a reminder or follow up letter - thing is we expected a reply by now!

It's a good idea to send a follow up letter. These departments operate really slowly.
