I would go through ebay and just cancel it.
I could not figure out how to cancel without contacting parrotsandpins (nannub) so I contacted eBay. They requested I file a Seller Non-Performance complaint so they could investigate seller. Apparently what the seller did is a violation of eBay policy. eBay also recommended I pay for this last item. I think they wanted to see what the seller would do.

Well, she refunded the monies and refused to ship the item. It will be interesting to see what eBay does since they were following this.

Thank you all for your help.

Well I hope that the seller gets in trouble. You could always pay, and then immediately return the product? Or file a complaint through paypal.

Sorry all, but looks like I inadvertently broke the rules (didn't know any different since I had seen links to ebay several times and thought by not posting links it was OK!) Not my intention at all....sorry!!

Did we ever figure out if there is something hinky going on with THEWILL. I have been eyeing a lot of their auctions lately looking for decent pins at good prices for trading fodder this October, but if he is messing the prices by shill bidding, maybe we should stay away from them

I don't know. I have bid on several of his pins and was never outbid. His prices are so low, that I think a lot of people have automatic bidding on them, and that would explain the automatic counter bid. I ended up going with his 100 pin lot and that was fantastic and cheaper than buying individual pins. He tossed in like, 5 extras, too.

I did a very dumb thing...

TODAY I had the bright idea to buy pins for our trip at the end of May. I signed up, bid and won without doing any research, and only after that thought to check this board. (Very unlike me. I've spent all my time hanging out on creative disigns !)

Anyhoo, now I'm in the position of owing $30 to thinkerbelle102, a seller I see is questionable here.

Is there any way to cancel this transaction now ????

I'm sorry to be such a newbie. If someone can point me to some help, I would surely appreciate it. Maybe I will just have to eat crow this time and pay up...

Contact the seller and see if they will let you back out, otherwise I think you might be out of luck.

I bid on 4 of his things. Was outbid on 1 and I didn't re-bid on that item. He sent me one invoice for my 3 things at the end of the week (to combine shippping) and has marked them as shipped. I think it will end up being fine. All in all, including shipping, I have $18 invested. So, I am not too worried. Seemed legit to me.

Send a message and tell the seller the truth: You have since done some research and are concerned that the pins you bought were scrappers.

Ask where the pins came from and if they are legitimate pins from the Disney Parks.

Chances are, if they are scrappers, the seller will give you a refund to save their feedback. If you notice, not many auctions say anything about not being scrappers-they just say '100% tradeable' (TheWill does say not scrappers, which gives me the feeling his are somehow legit).

Good luck

I have to agree with surfergirl602 about thewill. Whenever I need a Disney fix, I'll put a bunch of low bids on thewill pins for trading. I've bought tons of pins from him over the last few years and never had a problem.

In fact, next to thelionqueen he's my all time favorite source for Disney pins.

Thanks. I did and here is the response:

"Hi, thanks for writing with your question regarding your recent purchase which has not been yet been shipped. These pins have all been traded for at Disney parks. They bear the official pintrading logo and meet pintrading guidelines posted at Officialdisneypins.com".

So I guess I'll have to take the chance...Interesting I could not find that website. Are you familiar ?
Thanks for your advice.
