My Louis Vuitton Bag From Ebay Is Definitely Genuine: Closing the Self-Discrepancy Gap Through Self-Deception With Brands

As a result, consumers can use counterfeit products of ideal brands to reduce their self-discrepancy by deceiving themselves into believing that the counterfeit product is genuine.
