Major piece of advice: DON'T BUY BIG LOTS! They are often full of scrappers. Try to buy individual pins!

Red Flags:
No mention of pins being official
Pins "100% Tradeable"
Duplicate pins
Low LE pins

I sent this out to some sellers.


These are the responses so far
Key:
Green-Go ahead and buy
Orange-Questionably
Red-DO NOT BUY!



Ebay: nannub
Another poster said that he sold good pins, but he traded scrappers to new pin traders for these pins!




Ebay: snowdog!
Blocked me, probably because I left negative feedback for BBBC

Thank you to everyone who posted for for thier input!
Please add cfc93 to the red list. Before finding this board we ordered 400 pins from this seller. We received 3 - 100 bags and I think 2 - 50 bags, anyway every bag had the same set of pins and were known scrappers plus we received 3 copies of the same low LE 500 pin. I think they sell alot of these lots so it might be worth informing lionqueen,
Thanks.

This is more of a generic question about shipping with pins bought on E-bay. I bought 4 individual pins, each $1.25 or so, maybe $5 total in product. He is in FL, and I am in MD. I get the invoice that is asking for $7.45 in shipping costs, and that is via First Class. I pointed out to him that USPS Flat Rate, which they give you the boxes for free, is $4.95 for something this size. Am I wrong to question $7.45 for First Class for 4 small flag pins?

Was there not a shipping charge before you bid? Most sellers offer combined shipping. However, most shippers these days charge for bubble wrap, gas, boxes, etc. (supplies) and that is where those charges get high. I also think that some sellers use it as a way to make up for the fees of eBay and paypal. This is just a guess on my part.

There was and it did state $2.50 for the first pin and then $1.5 each additional item, but that seems like he is trying to profit off the shipping

I somewhat agree. However, it is hard to argue after the fact about something the seller puts in writing up front. I am one of those that would rather pay an extra dollar for careful shipping and packaging, though. Reminds me of one of my favorite scrapbook sayings (scrapbooking is a passion of mine, too):

"Scrapbooking: the art of spending $50 to showcase a $1.50 photograph."

High shipping used to bother me on eBay too ~ so I always make sure before bidding that the shipping is something I don't mind paying ~ as it's pretty much always high in comparison to the actual costs.
I also keep in mind the cost of paper, ink, envelopes, bubble wrap and the time it takes to wrap and send the pins and driving to the post office to mail them.
To me that made it easier for me to pay the higher than actual shipping costs that most sellers charge ~ they do need to try and offset some of their costs as all of the costs add up.

An update on Will's pins my sister bid on. She too, was outbid by U***D. She told Will, no thanks on the second chance offer. How do you go reporting this to Ebay? A page or to back also posted comments about Will and being outbid by U***D and second chance offers. As for shipping charges, most sellers seem to be around $3 for the first pin.

O.K. I am spreading the word - I have started a tread on Passporter a big DVC community to educate unknowing people. Maybe we can get something huge going.

I don't mean to pry, but can you give an idea of what amount you were bidding? Just thinking if it was a low bid, it wouldn't be surprising to be regularly outbid by someone else. I know I've personally gone through thewill's pins and put like a $1.50 bid on 50 of them, hoping that I snag about a quarter of them without being outbid. To someone else bidding, it might appear that I was a shill bidder.

I've bought lots of pins from him through the years, and I'm pretty confident that he's a straight up guy. I hope I'm not putting you on the spot by asking that question. I'm still learning and soaking up the info, too.

Thanks for sharing your experiences.

June

Paranoia will destroy you. Ha Ha

I'm not Nanub or his wife. I was led here through dispins. I picked my name because I have a Parrot and I collect pins. I did not know when I picked the name that nannub had opened a store with parrot in the title. That should be a crime in off it self. I have had run in's with Patrick at DTD in the past, and he is no friend of mine.These people will ruin pin trading if they are not stoped. I trade on pinpics and post on dizpins under a different name. I and several other long time pin traders would like to help stamp out counterfits and scrappers.Our collections are being put at risk. cfc93 is in with Nannub and buying from the same source. cfc93 has been around longer than Nannub and was legit untill year and a half ago. I"ll give you one more thinkerbelle102 was stamping AP on the back of rack pins and selling them on Ebay till they were caught. They sold hundreds and if you bought one you need to call and ask for a refund.Thanks and happy pin trading.

It's not about being outbid on thewills pins. It's the fact that within 24 hours you recieve a second chance offer and the person that has outbid you is u**d. Honestly if the will was getting screwed by this u**d person this much he would of blocked the guy by now. It's clearly schill bidding. I didn't report him because I used my husbands eBay id to bid. Had I used mine when this happened I would have reported it to eBay. His pins I got from him are real legit pins. The transaction was fine. No complaints. But he's def dishonest.

I too had a bad experience with cfc93. So your post confirms that cfc93 needs to be added to the red list. I too would like to help stamp out counterfits and scrappers before they completely ruin the fun. I am going to try to inform anyone I can on the boards.

Not to question but are you sure this person didn't have an automatic bid going. Is it possible for the seller to inflate his prices by getting a relative or friend to bid? I am still learning so please excuse the questions....
I did ask Ebay about shilling and they said that they continously monitor the bidding - not sure if I believe them though. Would like to know more about this and how to detect it.
