Looking for info on deb5923. 100 pin lots for around $50. 100% feedback... Any info??? Before I dropped $50 on pins I figured I would check here.
And I have always wondered.. where do these people get these pins in order to sell huge multiple lots?

These will most likely be unauthorized versions of Disney pins. They buy them directly from China for pennies on the dollar and sell on eBay. They are quite frankly fake pins. I would not buy from this seller at all. I have not looked at the sellers current auctions (unable to eBay from work) but this is my honest opinion on this seller, avoid avoid avoid!

There were a few fakes in there sure, but she checked them on pinpics and again with a way another CM told her, and the majority were real. I am satisfied with my purchase, and would do so again probably.

Exclamation Add magical.beginnings to the red list

I agree that we should post available information so that others don't spend money on scrapper pins, and so the pin community is not flooded with fakes.

Add ebay mega-seller magical.beginnings to the red list. Bought pins from him and all were scrappers. Came in plastic bags, lots of duplicates, smelled funny, uneven plastic faces.

I know this is off topic, but does anyone go through their pins and look at them when you want a little Disney pick me up? (I just found ours and spent 20 minutes looking at them with the kids. It was fun!)

I know what you mean. I am blessed to normally go to Disney 2-3 times a year. However, this year DH is laid off and going to school so I can only go once a year (for the pin events). So I was there last Sept. and not going again until next Sept (I know, poor me, but I am going through withdrawal). So after Christmas I went through my pins on pinpics to update my "wants" list. Can't wait until Sept. In fact I am going to book my room now. Penny

dizneymandoug - All appear to be legitimate, most came with the cardboard backings and a few from a mystery set were still in there black bags. Purchased 50, and just waiting for them to list another lot so I can buy more!![/QUOTE]


Second time ordering from dizneymandoug - great seller! All pins on cards again and a couple mystery pins in bags. Highly recommend him! Just glad he's had lots when I needed them!

Dilemma

So this whole fake pin thing is really throwing me off and leaving a bad taste in my mouth and I can't get my mind off of it.

A) I have been examining my pins for past 1-2 hrs checking with pinpics.com
B) I have been especially looking at the pins I got from a lot from Disneyfamily801 on eBay

C) I really can't see any pure signs that any of the pins I have are scrappers or fake.

There are a few (7 of about 100) that in my opinion could be scrappers according to pinpics and other signs of scrappers posted but honestly if Disney is making thousands of pins aren't some pins going to have rough edges, and discoloration. That is just the truth of mass production.

What I am really concerned about is the possibility that the pins I traded with cast members are fake, and then another guest trades for that pin and thinks they have a real pin and it is actually fake. I have been thinking this since the discovery of these scrappers and can't get it out of my mind.

I always knew there were fake pins but I had no idea they were good at doing it, I mean fake DVD etc are usually easy to detect, but I can't and don't want to determine if these are fake.


Help any advice? I could use a second opinion. Anything....

Well it is up to you, I personally don't mind if I get a fake, I figure I will since I paid ~$90 for 125 pins, however, most were real. Having said that I know we got at least 1 fake pin from a CM, but again I do not mind. So it really is up to whether or not you care if it is real or not. People buy knock-off everything to save money, so this is the same.

It isn't like I am trying or going to sell my pins to anyone, I like them and like looking/trading.

Sorry if this was off topic just wanted to respond to you and see if that helps.

I bought from them and they are all fake except maybe 1 or 2. I compared them to ones we own and pinpics. Most of them weren't even good fakes.

No it is not wrong to ask for a refund they are being fraudulent. Just cite that in the request for your refund. You have 30 days I think through the buyer protection.
