I'm wondering if any of those are safe to buy from. I don't see any of them on the red, green, or yellow lists on the first page of this thread.

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER! I bought a lot of 50 pins from them back in '08 and every single pin was a scrapper. When I told them they sold me scrappers they said: "I am sorry you are unhappy with your lot of pins, please accept my apologies. I have noticed that the pin quality that I have been trading for have been getting poorer, and I have been finding more and more scrapper pins. I try and catch them before I sell, but I was on vacation and wasn't as vigalent as I normally am."

Sure, sure.. a flat out lie. I asked for a refund of the auction amount, plus shipping(both ways) and I sent the pins back. They agreed. When they filed with ebay to get their charges back they said "both agreed not go through with the auction". and then asked if I could leave positive feedback for them, or none at all.

Because of this scapper incident I had, I am scared to buy pins off ebay at all. There is a small lot of CM lanyard/hidden mickey pins I want right now, but I don't want to buy them in case they are counterfeit.
Thank you for the information. I will be sure not to purchase anything from them.

I purchased one pin from seller maydelina1. I won and paid for this item on August 1st.. its August 20th. Still no pin!

Contacted seller a week ago.. they told me to continue to "wait and give it time"
Contacted them again two days ago..still no pin.. told to "wait and give it time" and then I put my foot down and asked "how long will this go on for?" they responded with
" I don't have any reason to play with you or argue over a pin"

Now Im legit mad! Will see what happens!

If you still do not have it, did you file a dispute with Paypal? They will have to at least provide a tracking or D/C number

Tell them..if they do not send you a replacement pin..NOW....you are going to file a claim AND leave them negative feedback.
They will take care of it.
The problems start..when you wait too long....
I kept waiting for a refund on a rip off item..that I sent back...
they waited till it was too late..45 days..and..then told me they were doing nothing...
ebay..said..it was too late.
so...do not play.....you can always retract your negative...if they make it right..
and..I am a powerseller..but..there are too many crooks..on the bay.
but saying that...warning.....
only file a claim...after making sure...they are not taking care of the problem..reason?
ebay has a new system....that downgrades a seller....
just for claims..if they get 2..even if they are unfounded....they get downgraded..for a year.

Yes..if you have never backed out of an auction before..you can..without problems.
Or..even easier....sellers do not want buyers who will leave them negative or ruin their dsrs...
not regular sellers by any means.
If you are uncomfortable buying them because of what you have read..or their feedback...
write them..and ..ask that they cancel the auction.
Explain..that if the pins even smell like fakes to you...you will leave them neg. feedback and 1 star on their DSRS....
so..give them the chance to just cancel the auction.
It costs them nothing..so..they will do it.
No seller wants an unhappy buyer...even before the item gets there.

Pins Ebay

I actually emailed him before I read your reply. Asking if they were legit etc and saying I had read neg about him on the boards. I told him what I wanted which is for my kids to trade in the world bc they never want to trade the ones we buy down there bc they have chosen them. I am also going with 2 1st timers and thought it would be fun for them....this is what he replied.....

"Hello,
My advice is never trade and never buy from ebay. You should only buy from Disney and never trade with a cast member.
Its the only way to be 100% sure.

- dopeyspins"

I replied back asking if that meant his were not legit and if so how we should proceed....waiting to hear. This is so sad....just want the kids to have fun with a little less expense. I need to read this thread more tonight!!!

Well none of them seem to have the regular red flags that we look for but I've never used any of them personally so it's hard for me to say for sure. Something to look for in this instance is where they are located, if they are close to WDW or DLR then it's easier for them to get pins. I would say buy with caution, check the auctions and the feedback and see what you can find but always remember that FB isn't 100%, some people don't know or care about scrappers.

Most eBayer's don't know about this board or this thread, if you referenced the seller likely has no idea what you're referring to. Just an fyi. He's not going to tell you if his are legit or not, he will probably just cancel the transaction. Good luck to you!

Was that really his reply?
I am shocked.....
Did you pay him?
Did he cancel the auction?
Did he offer to return your money?
If you did pay for them..........
Now..file a claim....and..leave him negative feedback..even more important...give him 1 star on the DSRs..
mainly..because his attitude..stinks.
most folks do not realize..a Negative..does not mean nearly as much harm to a seller..as a 1 star rating does.
It can ruin you...
and..with a response like that..he deserves it.
If he just canceled the auction for you....move on..do not worry about it.

We, too, purchases some pins from theatreandfilms prior to our last trip. Although some were valid pins, a majority of them were scrappers with off colors and the Mickey head stamping on the reverse not going to the edges.
