    Yes, one for the moment. How do you know when a new pin is comming out? Is there a site or location I need to keep and eye on?

    Hi everyone! I am writing from our 1BR villa @ Wilderness Lodge :cool1:
    We've been here 8 days and I am SO HAPPY to report that I have seen a DRASTIC (and I mean incredibly substantial) DROP in CM's with scrappers on their lanyards!! In fact, I have not seen a SINGLE ONE!!!

    Honestly, it's like "old times" again for us at least! I didn't even realize that I wasn't scrutinizing lanyards looking for scrappers as there weren't any.

    Not to say that there are zero in all of WDW but Disney has DEFINITELY done something to curtail this madness and I am THRILLED beyond belief!!!:banana:

    I just wanted to share the good news mid-trip, and I will be reporting back again after this trip is over (I hate saying that...lol)

    OK - stupidly, I ordered pins from ebay without checking here first. I have been on the disboards for a while, but didnt think about checking for advise on pin trading.

    I order a lot of 100 pins from a red listed seller - nannub. I thought I did good by checking his feedback. I am now hoping that I will be able to trade the pins I ordered.

    I am not a collector, just doing this as something fun to do at the parks, but in the same breath, I dont want fake pins.

    I am not sure from what I have been reading if nannub's pins are official or what is being referred to as scrappers. Am I reading that the pins I will get will be good, but his practice of getting them is fishy?

    TIA,
    Cathy

    My first pin purchase (before this thread) was from nannub as well. I found out the next day about scrappers and sent a message to nannub asking about the pins and whether they were purchased at the parks. They told me they get their pins by trading at the world (but if they are selling scrappers they would say that anyway).

    My red flag was that they were not willing to take a photo of the exact lot I would be getting. Also, rather than confirm for me that the pins were not scrappers, I was immediately offered a refund.

    If I were in your shoes, I'd get a refund and purchase from a 'green' seller. It stinks, but it's something we can do to stop the influx of scrappers to the parks!

    Thanks for the advice. I have already received an e-mail that my order has been shipped. I have a 7 day return policy so I guess I will check them out when I receive them. Keep your fingers crossed :)

    It's likely that some of them will be legit and very nice pins, what nannub does is buys scrappers, trades them to newbies for pins he asks them to purchase for him and then he sells those on eBay. :( He also trades scrappers to newbies for legit HM's and then puts them on eBay as well, he is also selling larger lots now which indicates that he's also selling scrappers. :(

    Oh crud, I keep doing that! LOL Did the same thing to Grumpy Pirate.....I suck. LOL BTW, I'm a she. :)

    So while at DLR this past weekend we did not see as many scrappers on CM lanyards, BUT we did see them on other people's lanyards, and in fact I got royally screwed on a night trade. :( I traded 2 really really good Hundred Mickey's for 1 scrapper and 1 very very badly damaged pin, I was sooooooooooooooo ticked!! Of course we didn't know until we got back to the room that night. :( So I have decided that when we got back (probably not until 2012 tho) I will NOT be trading with THOSE people at all. :mad: I was so excited about 1 of the pins too, it was almost my Holy Grail pin, not quite but almost...but someone DID have my HG pin and he wouldn't trade me at all. :(

    I unfortunately have just had a similar experience with nannub. I just hope everyone keeps reporting them to ebay and to Disney VerO and see if we can't get them pulled off of ebay.

    I recently purchased some pins from seller theatreandfilms and all the pins that were sent were 100% scrappers, poor off color remakes of cast lanyard pins. Contacting seller to see what he will do about it.

    I'm sadly reporting that in the last few weeks not only did I trade for a scrapper off a cast laynard but our friends got 2 in less than 24 hrs. Their DS (8) got a sedesma pin on Sat night. He was looking at the back and said there was something wrong with it. When I explained what he had, he was so sad that it wasn't a 'good' pin and our friends got a bit upset that the CM had left it on display to be traded off. They (the adults) got taken as well. They got a pin that was light and had misporportioned Mickey's on the back. I had just shown them my scrapper pin earlier in the day and that evening he brought me two pins and asked about them. One was good and the other wasn't. It's disheartening to get scrappers and several in such a short time. We got our friends hooked on trading two years ago and they are still enjoying it but it's losing the 'fun' factor since they've gotten the scrappers.
