Not that I know of, I really don't think he's shill bidding but that's just my opinion.

He would of been blocked...it's not like this has been taking place over a couple days...this has been going on for WEEKS since it was figured out.
If he has friends and relatives bidding for him that is still schill bidding...
I am not saying to not buy from him... My point is he shouldn't be in the green... yes his pins are legit... But he is not honest.
How do you know he's not honest? How do you know he's shill bidding? You don't....I've purchased a LOT of pins from him, some as second chance offers but not all. I wouldn't assume he's shill bidding at all. A lot of sellers have multiple pins available so they offer them as second chance offers, it happens to me all the time.....and no I don't always buy them.

It is not against ebays rules to offer someone a second chance, in the message from ebay it will say "the seller may have had more then one item available, the original buyer may have backed out", it's absolutely legit to offer second chance offers.

this is the most abusrd convo on... You all defend him to the end I don't care... Buy from him whatever... U guys wanted a list of honest and dishonest sellers... I am out on this convo....this board is ridiculous sometimes...
As far as the duplicate items... If you look further into your quoted ebay terms... you will see that Sellers with stores...are supposed to List how many quantity of an item they have if they are going to do it that way... Ebay wants their money... nothing is free... for the seller...and ebay would lose money this way by the buyer not having to pay all the fees on the item, not being listed properly..
Anyway I am out... I was looking for pins... I got my pins from the will they are legit... anyone who wants to buy from him go ahead.. .I too will still buy from him.. But I am not an idiot and I see whats going on...
See ya people...live in ur lala nieve worlds! OUT
I think you may be over reacting a little bit......Ok maybe a lot. Really?

I'll tell ya, if I could find a legit supplier that would sell guaranteed non-scrapper pin at a low enough price I'd consider starting my own store.

Just wanted to voice my ebay experience. A few years back, I tried one of the skin care sales companies and it didn't work out, so I used ebay to try and get back some of the money I invested. I would regularly send second chance offers out when I had more than one of something. ebay still collects the final value fee when you do a second chance offer, so they aren't doing anything for free. What ebay frowns upon is sending a private email or message to a second chance buyer- trying to make a second chance offer behind ebay's back, cutting them out of their fee.
I have bought from the thewill, and he is a great ebay seller! One time in particular, I was bidding on a few pins, and one was alot later closing date than the rest. He sent me a message first, asking why I hadn't paid, before he left me feedback or put a deadbeat bidder alert (whatever ebay calls those) and was totally. Most sellers will give you the strike and ask questions later.

ETA: ebay is on top of shill bidders too. My FIL got both his and my husband's account closed forever by shill bidding, and he only did it twice.

A few of my own thoughts on pin trading:

First: Do not buy a rack pin that you have just paid up to $10.00 or more for and then trade it with a CM. You bought the pin because you liked it, why trade it.

2. The only way to be 100% sure you have authentic pins is to buy them through Disney. If you are at the parks, start with the cutie packs that cost around $4.00 each. Have fun trading, trade for what you like, scrapper or not (unless you are a hard core pin collector, which I'm sure you arent trading with CMs anyway) I'm sure you will be happy with what you get.

3. I have personally purchased large lots from E-bay and taken those to WDW to trade. I had a blast, the kids had a blast. Were the pins I took scrappers? I dont know. Were the pins I got from CMs scrappers? I have no clue. Am I happy with what I got? 100% YES!!!

For the average person visiting the world, trading is just a part of a fun experience. It certaintly isnt the WHOLE experience. I am no way condoning scrappers, just have fun and try not to worry too much.

I agree with the part you said about rack pins, they are high only buy them if you don't intend to trade them with CMs or want them for your own collection. I'm glad that you had a blast trading pins - I certainly do. I'm going to have my 4 year old try for the first time this coming May - that's the reason I urge people to buy from reputable dealers, I want to preserve the experience for him. Scrappers are acting illegally and they know it.
Besides a lot of times you can get the pins for a little over $2 from the green list sellers. Honestly I think Ebay and Disney need to crack down and close down the scrappers on a consistent basis. Like you said I want to enjoy the experience and not have to worry about getting scrappers from a CM beside it would make me feel bad if I traded to a CM who then traded the worthless pin to another person. If we stick together in enough numbers we can make a difference - have a great day!

Hello, I have read many of your posts and I guess they inspired me to go on a rant also due to a recent bad experience. I wanted to thank you for your very informative posts. I would like to know if by informing people about this issue am I helping? Is there a way that we can make ebay and Disney take a harder stance. Thanks!

That's feedback is definitely appreciated. Maybe, if we all spread the word we can put a dent in the army of scrappers and make trading an even more fun experience. Have a great trip!

I have to wonder, though - if Disney is upset about the scrappers, why do they continue to be complicit in it by allowing CM trades? If they were upset about this/losing money/feeling cheated/etc, wouldn't they just stop the CM trading so there'd be less of it going on, and less of a market for the scrapper pins?

It just seems to me that Disney could fix most of this by just saying "hey, nice job, you ruined it." Or at least making the CM's only give out good pins, and once they are gone, they are gone. (Then the CM's could pocket their pins they get from people, and then they could be sorted somehow and the scrappers destroyed.) But they don't, they just trade the scrappers back out there as if they don't care about it at all.

Now, I won't willingly trade scrappers, but it seems to me if Disney isn't doing anything about it, then why all the onus on individuals to worry about it?

I feel responsible in that I don't want to contribute by buying from scrappers and thus making them want to sell even more. I also feel that if i ensure that I purchase good pins and trade them with CMs then at least there will be good pins in circulation if you will. According to Lionqueen she has had battles with DIsney legal and they have auctually closed some of the larger scrappers down. I see your point about Disney making sure that CMs get rid of bad pins. I think if enough of us speak out about this issue to both Disney and Ebay maybe they will do something about it. I'm glad to hear that you wouldn't knowingly trade scrappers it shows intregrity.
