    I have received the Up Film Reel pin from the Disney Studio Store but I did not order it. It has come from an Eduardo Sibole form Ontario Canada and as far as I can remember I have never done any buying or trading with this person. I am just worried that I have received this pin in error. Obviously, this individual was able to get my address. Please help.

    It might be a zap?

    There was no note or anything. I just wanted to make sure it did not go out to the wrong person. I have never received a zap, what does that exactly mean?

    A "zap" is when someone gifts you a pin (or other merchandise, it doesn't have to be a pin) for your collection. Kind of like a random act of kindness. Hopefully whoever sent it will confirm that's what it's supposed to be! :)

    Are you sure there is no note? Your confusion sounds a lot like mine when I received a zap. When I looked in the envelope a second time I did find a note. I was made to look like a ransom note with the letters all different fonts and sizes. And there was a sticky note. Check out this thread...

    Also, what was the envelope postmarked... was it actually shipped from Cali? Mine was shipped from Cali with a return address to Kansas.

    It's a paypal label and there is definitely no note.

    If it's a paypal label, that's a bit odd. Seems like someone would know that it's not the correct address. Have you lived there long?

    Did you check the tracking? See if the tracking history shows/confirms its departure from Canada? Or did it depart from somewhere else? The return address on some zaps is purposely misleading.

    I see that disneytechgeek posted these on the sale forum and you posted that you were interested in the Big Hero 6 pin. Did you purchase that one from him? Maybe he got them mixed up???

    I have figured it out. I was sent the wrong pin. I actually had totally forgotten about ordering the Big Hero 6 pin. Thank you to everybody that helped.

    It’s great that it was figured out. But all in all, I have to say, that’s pretty funny. I’ve done the same thing - forgotten I had a pin coming (I’ve actually started keeping a list of stuff I’m expecting). But I never had the wrong one sent to me. I could see that causing a heck of a lot of confusion. Kudos to poohlady5 for the tip.
