Lost Contact: TheStagPrince

http://www.furaffinity.net/user/thestagprince/ (Disabled)

I'm owed an artslave and they've seemed to have disappeared.
Last I talked to them they were having some issues and that's it. I've tried noting them and nothing. When I went to see how they were doing, I saw a disabled page and everything had been purged.

I just want to know details and possibly get a refund or something.

Edit:
I have now opened a dispute. After many people told me I should do this before it's too late. ;v;

Have you tried emailing the paypal email, or doing a chargeback?

I don't know what their email is anymore. They took down the original auction submission and I don't know how many months it's been since.

Paypal saves records of your transactions, so you'll be able to find their email if you find the right transaction. Click on it, it'll bring you to a detailed page where the email is.

Cant you check via the payment made? Each paypal transaction keeps the email.

"I'm owed an artslave"

Ugh, I know you don't mean anything by it, but that line makes my skin crawl. I really wish artists would stop using the term "art slave", it's not even an accurate description as slaves don't get paid.

Anyway..

I Googled for him a bit and found this repository of artwork by TheStagPrince from FA, likely harvested by a third party: http://vj5pbopejlhcbz4n.onion.city/fa/thestagprince/
SO I reverse image searched all the drawings...

Which included this photo: http://vj5pbopejlhcbz4n.onion.city/fa/thestagprince/1406883722.thestagprince_10547567_296347787212042_5240398158328677010_n.jpeg
Which I reverse image googled and found it had once belonged in this DA account: http://stag_prince.deviantart.com/
Which is mostly archived, but what little art I can see kind of suggests that the art that was on FA was outside their skill level and might have been traced photos/art.
Also if you reverse image search this image: http://vj5pbopejlhcbz4n.onion.city/fa/thestagprince/1379635516.thestagprince_dr.jpg it also refers you to the Stag-Prince account at DeviantArt, which is deactivated.

I can't find contact info for this Stag_Prince/Stag-Prince/TheStagPrince@FA guy, but I did find someone who has a photo featuring the same desk, keyboard and cockatiel. It might not be her, but maybe she knows who it is. Like a friend who came over and took a photo of her 'tiel? You can politely ask her if she knows Stag_Prince and if she has any contact information for him.
His photo: http://vj5pbopejlhcbz4n.onion.city/fa/thestagprince/1399278137.thestagprince_petme.jpg
Her photo: http://orafaerygirl.deviantart.com/art/Katana-Bird-28898039

Do you have any proof they're the same person? That way we're certain we're not sending a bunch of random people to a different person's blog.

Re: mod comment
Apparently not! Their tumblr is linked from the DA. "Hirsche" which was afaik, Eden. But Eden "The-Stag-Prince" is neither female, nor 19.

The DA link and the Tumblr link have been hidden as they both appear not to be TheStagPrince. If you have a link you're going to post, please provide solid evidence that they're the same person.
