TO ALL OUR BUYERS -TRAGIC DEATH IN FAMILY THIS MONTH - YOU WILL RECEIVE ITEMS

But all of their recent negative feedback has me concerned but I may wait for the estimate then call them or also file a paypal dispute.
I did contact them and have heard nothing back yet. I gave them 3 weeks, I've decided I will contact them again and if I hear nothing by Tuesday (4 weeks) I'm contacting Paypal. IIRC you have 45 days to file with Paypal, I'm not waiting longer then 30 days because I've had claims denied after filing past the 45 day period. I understand a tragic death, but really, let your buyers know ASAP and they will understand.

He actually bought several packs of this same LE group - one for my collection, one for my daughters and one to trade with. I wonder if the DCL CM's know better which ones are good vs. bad because maybe they spend more time with the pins?

We are going to DL in a little over a month and I'm not sure we want her to trade as the more I read about whats out on the CM's lanyard the more nervous I get about her doing so. Instead she just may end up buying keepers for her collection (I do that for mine instead of trading).
In our experience at DLR last weekend there were a few less scrappers.

I have purchased from flame*o*chist a number of times and he has always had genuine pins, great communication and good items. Also, his shipping is very quick.

Followup on mikeandnancy1020

I have gone back and read some of the feedback.....and the issue of a tragic death in the family was interesting....because she told my daughter that they had dogs and that he pupies were coming down with parvo.....so we just must be careful......it is sad because I did have one ery good purchase from them...but tis last issue is very troubling....

You know, the lists provided here have been invaluable about who to buy from and who to possibly steer clear from to avoid scrappers, but I am also going one further by only buying from people in the Orlando/California areas since to me, that seems like they actually have access to overstocks, exclusives pins, etc.; compared to someone in Kansas or South Dakota selling hundreds of lots of pins.

Thank You Kleckner, your update is appreciated. If paypal does not resolve the issue for me I will file with my CC company. I did contact them yet again, no reply as yet, they have until tomorrow before I file.

Broncobilly, that is a good rule to follow.

I noticed FAR FAR less scrappers @ DLR than at WDW! In fact, trading at DLR was teh best I've seen in a very long time. This was last May, so I don't know what's changed since. I must also add that our last trip to WDW (May this year) we saw much less scrappers than the previous visit. There were a HUGE amount of "cuties" and "starter set" pins, but not near as many scrappers. I think things are looking "up" and the Disney "brass" may finally be addressing the problem the only way they can at this point; having CM's pocket the scrappers and replace them with starter pins..

That's my take!

I have tried calling a few times.
First time I got the guy and he said he was on the freeway and if I would call back at 9:00 EST in the Morning.

I called back at 9:00 EST and if I remember it just rang until I got the voice mail where I assume Nancy is the one on the recording.

I then called at 12:00 EST and this time a girl answered and said she was out of the house and if I could call back at 5:00 EST as she would be home then.

I did call back at 5:00 EST and it goes straight to voice mail so this means they have the cell phone turned off.

What I do find funny is that the only shipping number I got on Sep 22 that is 9101150134711852897418 seems to indicate they only printed a label.

Another funny thing is who is Mike?

eBay says that it is shipping from

Carlos Nieto
2997 Kokomo Loop
Haines City, FL 33844

I will try calling some more and if I do not get an acceptable reply by tomorrow I will be also be filling claims.

Interesting, certainly sounds like they are giving the run around. Please come back and let us know what happens, I will do the same.

I called back at 7:56 EST and the Girl answered and said she was getting in her car and going home and if I could call back after about 20 min.

I called back at 8:20 EST and it again went straight to voice mail. I called a few times in a row so they must have had the phone turned off.

I then called at 8:41 EST and got a very disturbing voice mail message. It was the Guy and it said that it was forwarding calls and that if this call is regarding pins from eBay to go ahead and leave negative feedback as they don't care and already got your money.

I was going to call back and record that message but my brother was on my Computer so could not call back right away.

I did call back at 6:53 EST and the voice mail message was changed back to the girl again.

pixiewings71,

I filed my PayPal claims.
They give a eMail address for MikeandNancy it is mikeandnancy08 at yahoo.com

I can't believe I was even Nice enough to wait for eBay's estimated delivery.
My first Pin order had the 19th as the last day.

I ordered things from Hong Kong that have arrived.

USPS says with either Parcel Post or Media Mail it should have taken 6 days.
They said it would ship with Priority Mail and that takes 2 days.

I can't believe these people even were trying to sell more pins yesterday look at eBay item number 280410619962

They had 15 sets of 100 pins for $104.99

Hopefully, I get my refund soon and can make another order from a decent reseller.

Can anyone recommend any other eBay sellers that actually ship pins and don't take forever?

I suggest visiting the first page of this thread and using any of the other green sellers. Honestly, this is the first time I've had this happen. I went to eBay and to their page, there is nothing for sale now, I think they are having auctions pulled. I filed a claim with Paypal as well, I decided not to wait for any more time to pass. My dispute was immediately escalated to a claim, hopefully I'll have my credit soon, if not I will file with my cc company.

Malouff, I can suggest personally Pinderellas_Castle or Mickeystreasure, both are listed o the first page and have good pins for sale. I can also suggest mubunny but I don't know if he has anything listed right now, I made my last purchase from him via email.
