Do fake APC jeans exist?

I've tried doing some research, and I'm actually having trouble finding if there are actually APC fakes out on eBay and such.

I have someone over at denimblog who was offering to sell me some cheap APC NS for $100 bnwot, but it sounds kinda fishy as these jeans retail for $165.. should I be careful?

The seller said he'll ship the jeans first and I can pay when they arrive, so I suppose it's a little safer this way, though I don't know what I'll do if I get them and find they're fake. Anyone know?

A seller who offers to ship the jeans prior to receiving payment sounds very fishy to me - not so much because of fakes just because it is extremely unusual and asking to get scammed. However I have not seen any fake APC jeans at this point. Still better to check just in case. Need actual photos of the jeans.

Yeah.. I thought the same. But it's pretty much no-risk on my side for accepting them right?

I asked for photos, but it sounds like this person is a middleman and has hookups with some business. He said he can't give me photos of the actual jeans since he has to place the order.

I showed him my eBay rep and such, so maybe that's why he's trusting.. although I can't say I would do the same regardless of what kind of rep the buyer had :x

So should I say no then?

He said he'll have it shipped soon.. but how I see it is that if they're fake I can send them back, no harm done right?

If you're waiting to pay until you get them doesn't sound like you have anything to lose except the cost of shipping them back to the seller if they turn out to be fake. It just seems like a really strange way to do business. He is very trusting of you it would seem.
