the pins were purchased from disneyfamily801
Definitely let them know you know they are fake and ask for a refund. If they don't refund your money you can contact Paypal and file for a refund using not as described as your reason. So sorry you got a bad lot but Thank You for checking!

bizzybee1 is listed on a safe sellers list here and currently has a 25 pin booster assortment for $49.95 on eBay. That's probably as close as you're going to get to a lot purchase with real pins. (I'd post a link, but I'm new to the board and need a few more posts before I'm vetted.)

Note that I have not bought from this seller personally, and am solely relying on the recommendations of others on the board.

I just got this response from them:



What do you all make of this? I told them that i'm bringing them with me to WDW to have them checked, that if they're found to be genuine, i'll keep them and apologize for falsely accusing him, but if they're fakes, i'm sending them back and reporting them for fraud.
what ever happened when you took the pins to Disney?

No, but in looking they appear to be legit. Again, without seeing the pins in person it's hard to say but if they had something I needed to finish a set I'd buy it.

Probably nothing, the CM's normally have no information regarding the authenticity of the pins, most CM's wear lanyards because they are told to.

Absolutely not!
Their feedback is horrible...
Fakes are mentioned 3 times..
and all of their listings are scrappers.
to see a sellers bad feedback..click on the red or grey numbers...
save your money..
WDW has a deal right now..
they have an 8 pin Purchase with purchase pin lanyard set of 19 bucks.
they are very nice pins..and you know they are real.

Thank you! I was just trying to find a bunch at a cheaper price as I have 4 kids to buy for. Guess I'll start suggesting it as a birthday gift.

try to look for lots that are on cards.
figure that a real pin will cost you about 2 bucks each in lots.
or if you get the new starter packages.
Also..check the disney stores or outlets in your neighborhood for sales.

I wouldn't recommend for the same reason as Deb. Stock photos, lots of 25 pins starting at 99 cents?? I would avoid them for trading. They have mostly good feedback, only 4 negatives, but always remember that many pin buyers don't know (or care) about scrappers so give positive feedback either way. That said, I may buy a lot or a few singles just to confirm my feelings, but my feelings are these are scrappers.

Pin trading is not meant to be a cheap hobby. There are sellers with legitimate stuff but there are more scrapper sellers than good sellers. The majority of trusted sellers I use charge more and don't sell lots.......Good luck!! Try checking the disneystore.com site, they will often have pins at great prices on sale. Also, there are other pin boards (just talking about pins) with good sellers that have pins for $2-3 each.

Try bizzybee1 on ebay. I've purchased one pin from her when I first started trading. She has a lot listed of 25 pins for $50. Here's the link http://www.ebay.com/itm/Disney-TRADI...item35bb654256

So I decided to run a test.....I found a pin being sold by cl-pin-provider that I really wanted, so I did a BIN, since I had already done that I decided to bid on a lot of 25, knowing that they will be scrappers, but knowing that I will be able to use them no matter what. So I won the lot for $13.50.....bought the pin I hope is real and picked up a few other BIN pins that I would like to be real but am not hopeful about. Once I get them I will let you know my feelings after the pins. I do not think the lot or a few of the singles will be good, but again, I hope the other one is....

I also did the same for disneypinpros, I know I have purchased individual pins from them and they were fine, I also won a 25 pin lot for $13.00 from them.....

I did this because I felt that the costs are negligible when I am unable to trade them and again, I will use them for other "projects".......I like to break the post off and glue a magnet on the back for a fridge magnet, or I use them as push pins in corkboards, or I use them for decoration in the bathroom, that way if they rust it's not that big a deal.
