I'm sorry about your experience. Often, if you ask for a refund they will give it to you. Also could I ask who the seller was. Thanks

how can I tell?

I went on pinpics.com and researched a few--- I honestly cannot tell if they are real or fake. How can you tell if they are scrappers?

BTW I bought a lot of 100 pins from parrotsandpins (formerly nannub I think)

I am wondering if I should ask for a refund??

Based upon my personal experience with nannub, I would never recommend to anyone that they purchase and trade her pins. Yes, I would ask for a refund.

Well, after reading this entire thread, and with an upcoming trip to WDW for my 40th bday, I went out on eBay and purchased an assortment of pins for me and my kids (and Mom) to trade. More or less to have fun, pass time on line. We're not in it to make money and we're not hard core collectors.

So, I've won many auctions from more than a few sellers. Mostly, I've stuck to individual pins from a same seller. For example, bidding on a pin I really like, than bidding on a few others from the same person to save on shipping and build a trader group.

I guess that I don't want to be part of the problem and frankly, I don't think we'll have any problem trading scrappers for scrappers with CM (unknowingly), but I really don't want to trade with other guests that take this seriously.

Anyway, it seems to me that even if I look the pin up on pinpics, even if there's no scrapper warning, it could still be a scrapper, right?

Very true. Pin Pics does a very good job at highlighting and warning the pin community about scrappers, but unless they are told about it to begin with, they would not know to have a warning up

I bought a pin on e-bay (I usually will buy one at a time for DS) from pin.mania and while it doesn't have the tell-tale "oil" smell, it does have some color inconsistencies. I will buy a "real" one from another trader and compare, and let you know. I was just curious if anyone else has bought from this ebay-er. Thanks!

Another resource I use to identify scrappers is dizpins.com. I google search dizpins known scrappers and then I click on the result. This website does a great job showing pictures as well. Pin pics is good, but I am aware of pins that are being scrapped and pin pics does not have a warning for these. As always, "nothing is guaranteed authentic unless it has been purchased by you directly from Disney."

I have some eBay sellers to add to the good list! I just received HK Disneyland pins from bestpinstore and toy-treasure. They are perfect! The ones from toy-treasure came on their original card backs, still sealed in the original plastic bag. The one from bestpinstore came sealed in its original bag (was a mystery pin) AND she wrapped it in a real HK Disneyland shopping bag and included a HKDL brochure/park map and a sticker. Such a fun package to open to go with a gorgeous pin.

Thank You, it says amazing_gifts2008 also I missed that they came straight from China that should have been a red flag, Live and learn.

Confused...

I just looked at some of my pins from WDW still on the card and not all of them have ODPT on the back. I bought from a seller that had all but 3 positive feedback and those three were neutral because of long ship time...but the seller has in the auction to allow up to 14 days for shipping. So if that's in the auction and you bid, I don't see how you can give less than positive feedback for that. But anyway....I just looked at all of them. Some (like the bottle caps) we bought in a store but many of the others I don't remember how we got them. They all look ok to me. My daughter has them on a bulletin board in her room and they are memories of our trips so if they are "fake" i'm not too upset about it because they look fine and she is happy.
i guess i will look at the ones I bought closely when they arrive and see.

Has anyone ahd any experience with MousePins4U? I purchased some from them ages ago and never even thought about there being scammers selling scrappers. I think all of the ones I received are legit, but I doubt I could really tell a scrapper from the real deal if my life depended on it.

Don't let all of this stop your children from the thrill and fun of pin trading. If you are purchasing pins from ebay, the information here about reputable sellers is the way to go. It's a fun thing to do, kids love it and as long as you just stay with reputable sellers, you'll be fine. If one of your kids should fall in love with a pin they see on a CM lanyard, trade for it and you see it looks a bit questionable, it's not a biggy. If the kids love the pin, that's what counts.
