Yes, that is disgusting. I hope Disney starts cracking down on these idiots.

Think about that, she probably made about $3,000 in four days. How awful! I think I'll call Disney Legal now.

you guys all have very noble intentions...however you don't get that Disney does not care. We were actually at HS one day and saw someone who sells on Ebay and is a "big" pin trader at DTD with his entire family trading scrappers all day long. We approached several managers as well as Customer Relations with several of the pins ( all lollipops) and they looked at us like we were nuts...we even had a CM who traded with them come with us to one manager and nothing happened....good luck- maybe you will have better luck than us...one good thing is they are on your bad Ebay list !

I have to disagree with you. Some CMs may not care, but the Disney Company cares. They are losing so much money because of scrappers!

we thought the same....we went to quite a few managers that day along with the manager of marketing at HS...every one of them was disinterested in our story...plus this same "pintrader" who is at DTD every day bragged to several other traders that he ordered 5,000 scrappers from China himself, they also complained about him to Disney management...again nothing....like I said good luck.

To clear my name...i wasn't ACCUSING anyone of anything. Some of the posts on the other thread were judging sellers as negative just by looking at the listings. That is what i was referring to as a witch hunt.

Back to the topic at hand, definately put Travelinwynns in the red. Several years ago I bought from them, at a price of about 2.50 a pin. back then I knew hardly anything about pin trading, other than less than $2, thay are probably fake. I bought again from them a few months ago, and I got some definate scrappers, I'll post pics as soon as my I find my camera. How do I know they are scrappers? They were the ice sculpture HM pins, and a week earlier I got a few of them from a CM at DCA who pulled them out of his pocket, saying he just got them from backstage. (ironically, the CM pulled the pins out in small plastic bags...) Anyway, the color is definatly off on them, as well as the size and font. I chose not to return them, and use them for scrapbooking instead. (cut the backs off and glue them on.) that way, I won't return them, and they won't re-enter circulation.

has anyone had experience with the seller lvnapoli? they have several booster sets for sale.
Thanks!

I just got some pins from thewill and they are great. Your list was very helpful to me. I went to who was listed in green and avoided the rest.

Just bumping to keep this up at the top I've referred a few people from the Budget Board, I'm hoping the bump will make it easier to find this thread for them.

A while back I was looking at listings by nannub.

All of fixed priced listings said, "you are bidding on..."

I wrote to him or her asking how you can bid on a fixed-price listing. I got a nasty email back, which I promptly reported to ebay.

I think I got scrappers from Mousepinsonline today. I only bought 5, but I think they are all scrappers. I have checked with pinpics and they described possible fakes. I have a gonzo with a mouse ears, mine is dated 2009, but the originals are dated 2008. I got a Donald Duck as a doctor that is limited edition and from the description of a fake one, mine matches the fake one. It also is messed up on the foot.
Another one is John and Michael flying, it doesn't list a fake but says the back should have one pin post, mine has two. A hidden mickey one that comes up on the scrappers list (when I looked at the pictures of scrappers), but when you search it, it is not even found. And the last one has Disneyland Paris on it with no date. I didn't think they were to send any that were not from Disneyland (CA) or DisneyWorld. I did e-mail about the Disneyland Paris one, but have not heard anything yet.

I glad I only bought the 5 pin grab bag. At least I was only out $14.00.

I really don't know if they are fake, but I don't think I will be taking them with us to trade.
