I joined the purse forum for advise on authenticating a bag i was looking at on ebay. The rules of the purse forum state that in order for you to create a new post for the first time you have to leave 5 replies. I started to do this and got messages from admin stating that i was leaving spam and my replies where removed. Then right after i wrote to purseforum and asked how then can i create a post of i can't leave replies as per their rules! The next thing that happened was that i was banned! I think this website is all about generating business for authenticating businesses that they own or are part of. They don't want genuine users on the site asking for advise though they say they do, what they want to to drum up business for the authenticating businesses that they work with and or own. This is really very clear. I'm certain this site thepurseforum is a large scam.
