Aurasoul the plushmaker

I just wanted warn you guys about her.  Back in March I had commissioned 2 custom plushies from her to be completed (and mailed) by the end of October.  I still have not received them nor any pictures to indicate they are done.  I made 2 payments, one in March and the other in June.  So they're both paid off, but as soon as she got my money she stopped responding to me.  I had been noting her over DA and she would simply ignore them.  Since then she got herself suspended on one account and banned from another.  So I started emailing her and I got one reply saying she would send pictures the next day, that was a week ago.

I just tried to open a dispute with PayPal but they immediately closed the ticket since it was opened more than 45 days after the transaction took place.  I've tried asking her for a refund but I don't think it'll happen, for lack of reponse more than anything else.

Does anyone know if there's any other way of getting a refund?  Or if anyone knows her they should tell her to stop hiding from her commissioners.

Hmm...I looked at her on dA and it seems she's been suspended...maybe it's for something related to this kind of thing.

Thank you for the information.

She was suspended for posting fox porn to her account and then reposting it once it had been taken down. It was completely on purpose.

I wouldn't think SHE would fuck anyone around after being fucked around herself recently. A pity.

Was she? She never posts updates so as far as I know she's been sitting around eating Cheetos for 6 months.

Have you received any word back? I've really tried to be patient and I feel bad as this is the first time I've been sour with someone I've commissioned.

Did you pay via credit card THROUGH paypal? Sometimes credit cards can have longer grace periods, but they can still get your money back.

I made the first payment out of PayPal and the second was thru PayPal using my credit card. The thing is that our last 'transaction' was in June, so I'm unsure if anyone can really do anything on it.

I knew she sounded familiar when you mentioned she posted fox porn on purpose.

I was lurking the ^Devart page and a few users were pointing out that she was flaming other users. I went to her page (Ravesoul, before it was banned) and someone on her page mentioned she was trying to get herself permanently banned (fox porn/flaming) because she was purposely scamming people with commissions.

Im not sure if the comment is still there on Ravesoul's page, but I'm pretty sure thats what I saw.

Ah sorry, longtime lurker of this community (I hardly post here, I just read) haha XD;

Do you have a link? I'd like to see what's going on with that. I wish I'd have gotten to the Ravesoul account before it was perma banned.

If she really is trying to scam people, I hope she gets shut down.

I really hope so too, I mean I commissioned some not real common plushies and she sent me an image of one of them (when he was unfinished).

I've never heard of Runo, would you mind sending me a link?

Getting the money back
I hate paying for things and never receiving it. What you can do, since your paypal ticket was declined, is call your bank that your paypal account is linked to. They'll tell you what form you need to fill out for an unauthorized payment (in this case a payment that was authorized but needs to be recovered because the item was never received). Paypal will then open its own claim and research the problem.

Re: Getting the money back
Does it matter that I never transferred the money into my account? Like, my PayPal money doesn't seem to actually /be/ in my bank account. And it wasn't when I sent it. o.o Hope that's not too terribly confusing.

Sorry to be late to the party here, but I'm having the same issue. Commissioned back in December, no contact since February. I don't want to press the "o shit" button on her yet, but it's looking like it might be about time...

Yeah, I've been contacting her thru a German forum, forum.furbase.de. I actually heard from her last week I think, she's been really busy with exams but she has assured me that now that her exams are over she can finally finish them and send them out to me. I can't get my money back so I'm just hoping it all pans out in the end.

Hey, I know this is late and all, but..

I commissioned Aurasoul over a year ago for a plushie for my boyfriend. She has sent me pictures, but that was way back in like..April. I told her on german furry board that I have yet to get my plushie, and she blamed in on the shipping for loosing it. I don't know weather to believe her or not, considering she has lied so much in the past...

All I've had was bad experience with her. I wish I could get my money back, but I'm not too sure if paypal will do anything at this point of time.

Paypal wouldn't do anything for me when I tried. I did get lucky and eventually receive my plushies tho. I hope your's can find its way to you somehow.

AuraSoul DID send you photos of the plushies and i also saw the receipt from the mail office. They might either have gone lost on the way or take unusually long. You didn't want to pay extra for the package to have a tracking number so i would say it's your own fault.

Aug. 29th, 2009 03:23 pm (UTC)
Yes, and again, I did see the pictures of the plushie, and that did make me feel better but I had lost contact from her since then until I spoke to her on the german furry forum. I did wish that I paid for tracking, looking back on it, but at the time I paid her, I wasn't aware this problem would have rised. But yes, it is my fault for not paying the extra money.

Also, could I see the receipt? It would help greatly.
