A court ruled the woman had been duped after buying what she thought was an authentic item via Instagram
A Kuwaiti court has ordered a woman be paid KD1500 ($5000) compensation after a purse she bought via Instagram was revealed to be a fake.
The woman paid KD500 for what she thought was an authentic item and later discovered it was a premium counterfeit, Kuwait Times said.
The photo-sharing site has become increasingly popular for businesses to promote themselves, including links to their online shopping websites.
The daily did not reveal the fake goods seller.
