Thank you sooo much, SupernaturalMommy! This is a great service. Other regulars: Go ahead and post here (even if it's just in appreciation ) and then you'll have a post on the first page or two that you can edit to add recent experiences. That way, SupernaturalMommy can take a break once in a while.

I just bought a small lot of 5 pins from arraps at your recommendation. Every single one of them is a scrapper. Apparently, you caught them, but they did nothing to change their practices. I did email them and am giving them a chance to make it right before leaving them negative feedback (and maybe filing a claim, if necessary) with eBay, but this is not a safe seller by any stretch of the imagination.

Quick follow up. The seller (arraps) responded and offered a full refund if I return the pins, and said that they had 'given up' trying to sort out bad pins. So, this seller definitely belongs on the red list.

We were faced with a moral dilemma and have chosen to keep the scrappers instead of put them back into circulation. We'll keep one or two for my daughter's personal collection and make crafts with the others.

I Think steamboatwillie39 should be moved to the GREEN list, I have bought from him several times, and each pin has come in great shape, most new on card and no signs whatsoever of being a scrapper. Koolstuff2005 I am still look over those pins I got from the seller, and a prelim look makes me think they could be scrappers, so buyers beware

Does anyone know anything about an eBay seller named disney-life? They have a pin set I am interested in for my 6 yo. I've never done the pin trading before as we have only done Disney cruises in the past but we are taking her to DW in 2 weeks and I think she would enjoy. I've been reading as much as I can on pin trading and really appreciate the threads with scrapper warnings. Of course now I am leery to buy from anyone not on the green list! LOL
Thanks for any insight!
