Every pin goes past him ~ he will know for sure
I'm sorry but this information is wrong, Sedesma and Europins HAVE the copyright stamp but they are no longer to be traded with CM's at the parks. They have the copyright because they were at one time authorized to produce Disney pins, but Disney was not happy with the quality so they revoked the contracts with both of those companies. I have no idea who Steven Miller is and have never been to WDW but my information comes from the pin trading guides at DLR. But I would be interested to know what he has to say about them.

Yes, the UK in the last 6 months I've seen many scrapper sellers pop up, hence why I would like to help the cause.

Infact, I too have been sent an email from China asking if I want to buy bulk pins direct with pictures of the pins. I'm actually outraged about it..1. because they contacted me direct on my personal email and 2. they have no discretion about it either, just blatant about the whole thing.

Many thanks
Yes, that's what I'm saying. If they want to sell illegal products then out them. That's what they are doing, they are selling illegal products, scrappers are NOT authorized by Disney and are illegal.

I ordered from kittykat2bad which is on the green list. I purchased pins on November 30th. I emailed them on December 10th wondering if my pins had been mailed since I received notice on December 2nd that they had been mailed. I received an email back stating that they are having problems with their post office and they would send my pins to our Disney Resort. I emailed them the resort address. I never received my pins. According to the USPS website you can see where they were mailed to my home address on December 11th. They arrived in Columbus,Ohio, then went back to Floridia came back to Ohio, went back to Florida, they went out for delivery in kittykat2bad home town, then were delivered in Orlando, Florida. This went on for over three weeks. They could have been delievered to the resort but no one can find them.

Not sure if this a problem with kittykat2bad or just one of those weird things that can happen. They have received 2 negative and 4 neutral feedback ratings in the last month. Looks like for slow shipping or not receiving their items.

Since they were on the green list I just wanted to share my experience in case someone is thinking about ordering from them so you would be aware that there could possibly be a problem with this seller.

Thanks for the information!

It does seem like it's one of those funky things that sometimes happens but with 2 other negative feedbacks for the same reason, who knows. At least we know to order WELL in advance before our trips, if nothing else!

I hope all is resolved quickly and painlessly. Thanks for taking the time to share.

buying pins on ebay

okay I am really confused after reading these posts! Only been to WDW once and we got caught up in the pin trading bug! I want to buy a 'lot' of pins for my kids 5, 9 to trade when we return at the end of Feb. Can anyone point me to one or two ebay sellers who sell the real deal at good price? I would appreciate the help thanks!

Sandy who can't wait to surprise the kids!!!

Go to the first page of this thread and look for "green" sellers. These are sellers that DISer's have had good experiences with who don't sell scrappers. If you buy a huge lot for $1 or less a pin, that states "no doubles up to 10" and don't show a picture of the actual pins you will receive (among other clues) they are scrappers, DON'T buy them!

anyone have an idea just how much money is lost to the scrapper thing? estimates. Apparently not enough for Disney to do anything about it...very problematic indeed

There's no way to know that really. So no, I don't think anyone does know.

I ordered a set of pins from a seller by the name Pinpointe and got one scrapper (the color was off) and they sent out 2 more to replace the bum one
Since I found the one I went through the others and they weren't on the known list.

They do trading card & collectibles and are branching out also they are buying pin collections the note said in the envelope.

All in all they look to be good sellers.
