Ok....I'm still looking at pins! Anyone heard of hawaiiandreamcastle? I checked her buyer feedback & she is purchasing single pins from "green" sellers listed here.

I bought a lot from the pin connection a few months ago and all were scrappers. I had gotten what i believe were legit pins from them last year but i think they came on hard times and tried to make some extra money.

I purcashed a pin from monkabuda for personal use. I'm not trading it. I do believe they sell scrappers. Hawaiiandreamcastle seems to be okay. I've had experience with them. The only questionable move is buying a private auction from Sleepys_emporium. Check feedback as a buyer. I believe, Sleppys sells a majority of scrapper pins. So, Hawaiian may be trading scrappers for legit pins. Do you want to do business with someone like that? This is the ethical question.

Unfortunately, I just found this tread after already purchasing a lot of pins o ebay last week.

My pins are def fakes, as they have all the warning signs listed on here

if going on ebay, beware of gomf03 . That is who i bought from, and they sold themselves as Christian, trying to raise funds for their 2011 Disney trip!

I have tried contacting him, and nada.

Anywho, if you are looking for legit pins, this was not the person!

Wish I knew the warning signs before, then again, if something seems to good to be true, it usually is!

I am so happy I checked this tonight...I was going to order from gomf03. How did you know they were scrappers? I guess I won't be ordering from them. Who can I buy 20 pins from and not be sold scrappers?

Just bought 3 lots from him after MUCH communication - authentic pins ON cards w/ Disney color-coded stickers, SEALED mystery packs, booster sets (sealed in plastic), etc..... There were some duplicates b/c I did buy 3 lots of 50, but that's okay b/c I bought them for trading. I will probably end up buying more from him b/c my son found so many keepers and my girls haven't gone through them yet. Super-fast shipping, too.

Update..........I sent them back and she refunded me the full amount. All though I was unhappy that she did have scrappers even with 100% FB, I was happy for the refund. Back to finding more pins.

Disney_pin_ etc seems pretty legit to me. There are a few negative comments. So, you may want to look at those and decide for yourself if you want to do business with them. I looked at the feedback as a buyer and nothing fake jumps out at me. I would give them a try. Good luck.

i believe i was the one who said pinconnection should be on the green. i haven;t done business with them ina while so i cant attest to their recent scrappers, but i know that their singular le pins are legit for the most part. so maybe move them to yellow?

In regards to preludevtec01, I am not familiar with those older pins. I would need to see the pin, to be of help.

I would not recommend them. I received a 20 pin lot & I would say probably 3/4 of them were a scrappers. They did take them back in return w/a full refund, however.

I haven't been on this thread since our last trip, but we have a new one coming up in October, and I am sad to see so many good sellers that have gone down hill! I used to buy my big lots from thewill, but no more. WOW, he's really changed his stock!

If anyone is looking for REAL pins, I am selling some of my collection on ebay right now. Spending money for our upcoming trip. My username is: surfergirl602
