I also had this happen to me on ebay. I reported it higher up people. The item I was bidding on was outback steakhouse coupons. What I was told from ebay it was the same person.

You should definitely report it ~ and let eBay investigate it from there ~ it can't hurt ~ only help protect other buyers

I really dont care what you think about me but I atleast think the truth should come out. Nannub hasnt even traded pins since october. I know this because i have talked to her and she is getting out of her collection.... You need to relax because each and everyone of you knows that they buy cheap [pins. I do! I know that nannub supports over 50 sellers on ebay and the funny part is 13 of the green listed are her customers.

I thought you might be interested in a personal experience I recently had on ebay. A month or two ago I asked this board who they would recommend for Disney trader pin for my grandkids. I have a 5 year old granddaughter and a 7 year old grandson from my oldest boy. They were planning a trip to Disneyland and I thought I would surprise them with a gift from nana. That is what they call me. They are so cute.

I was referred to the sellers in green on the first page of this board. I ended up bidding on several lots from parrotsandpins. This seller was not listed, but the pins pictured looked like Disney pins and the prices were affordable for someone who is on social security.

I ended up winning a lot of 100 pins for around $55. Being a novice on ebay, I had trouble figuring out how to pay for the items and sent the seller several notes to that effect. I finally ask my son to help me and we paid for the pins four days after I won them.

A day or two later, I sent the following note to the seller: “Have you shipped these items yet? If not, please ship tomorrow. I need these for my grandkids and they are going to Disneyland on Tuesday.” This was his reply, and I quote: “you took 4 days to pay. we ship within 3 business days after payment is clear. maybe you should have paid sooner. if you have a problem i would be happy to refund your money for all your items. let me know”

I sent a note back to please ship the pins and then also paid for the two other items I had won. Later that day I noticed that parrotsandpins had refunded all my payments. I sent a note asking why and this is the reply received “we are not dealing with you”.

He provided no explanation and ignored my other emails. I have never been so offended in my life. Naturally I left him negative feedback. He replied to my feedback saying that I had several items that I had not paid for and called me a deadbeat.

I think he was referring to the one lot of 100 pins I won earlier but never paid for. I bid on a lot of pins and won while I was hospitalized from a fall I had (I am 83 years old). I was not released until after the seller filed and closed a nonpayment claim on me. I did not even know I won the lot until after the claim was closed.

Then I come to find out that parrotsandpins is nannub by reading the postings on this board, a seller who does not seem to be well respected by most. anotherpinforme, you may defend her, but after my experience, nannub is not a very nice person. She is nasty and vindictive. I was very surprised to find out she is a she. I cannot imagine a lady being so mean and rude to people.

Anyway, I am glad that so many are trying to help those of us who do not know about the sellers on eBay. Thank you all. I personally will never again bid on anything that nanub or parrotsandpins has for sale. I will definitely only buy in the future from those who are recommended.

I do have one question that maybe the members of this board can help me with. I won another item from parrotsandpins that I had bid on before this fiasco but ended on Monday. I am worried that if I pay for the item she will just keep my money and not ship the item. I cannot afford to throw money away. What should I do?

I'm really surprised that the seller didn't cancel your bid, and block you. He/she has a history of doing that if you ask too many questions. I didn't even bid on anything, but I guess I questioned the authenticity of the pins and was told that he/she was banning me from bidding on their items. No worries for me!
I would go through ebay and just cancel it.

I would cancel my transaction...everything they sell in lots are scrappers anyway so your not missing out on much, however I doubt they would not send the merchandise...it's very easy to contact Paypal if you do not receive your item and they must show delivery confirmation to keep your payment...by the way "they" are not a he or she...it's a couple...he was the loser who set up camp outside the DTD Pin Store for years to prey on the poor traders and she mailed and packed the pins....I think their time is about up ...all their lots they are selling now are the scrappers he bought from China...they might have to go out and get real jobs now that Disney has put the brakes on their "business"......

Counterfit Pins

Just curious, I see no mention of cfc93. I bought a lot of 100 pins and everyone was a scraper or as I would call them counterfit. This seller is selling several thousand pins a week. Beware.

Thank you Tampa and Surfergirl for offering helpful advice. I would love to cancel the transaction. I went on eBay and cannot find out how to cancel the transaction except to contact the seller and request it be cancelled. I cringe at the thought of having to contact parrotsandpins. It would be just one more opportunity for him/her to insult me.

Do you know of any other way to cancel the transaction?

I thought it was funny....but like you guys said definetly interesting. I didn't realize there was one that was removed.

On another topic - I'm am still going back and forth on whether to "let" my daughter trade on our upcoming trip to DW. I haven't been there since Xmas 2008 and then it wasn't bad.

I meant to post awhile ago regarding our experience in DL with the pin trading - it wasn't bad at all but no where near the amount of CM's trading. My daughter only traded a few - the rest of the pins she purchased for keeps (we both LOVED the Jack Skellington ones). But what I did find interesting was one day we got to DL (not DCA) right at opening and stopped off at one of the sit down restaurants near the castle (I can't remember the name). Across the way at one of the outdoor food seating area's was about 2 or 3 very "squirrely" looking men who had tons of pin books out talking to others. Now I hope I don't offend anyone here as I doubt it was any of you folks but these guys looked like the "Pin sharks" they had at DD a few years ago.
