View Full Version : Scamming!?

Has anyone heard of this person?

I posted an ad looking to have a cosplay made and I got a reply saying they would do it for me but without any other information whatsoever. I replied asking if they had references to their work and what materials they would use and they just told me to email them.

I always do background checks before I let my hard earned money go off to someone and so I did a google check of their email address: cassiesclosetcostume. I also did a search on the forums here for it and found something very fishy. The person has two accounts Harley_Quinn and the other which they used to message me, tinkerfairy. I saw that they were messaging a lot of other people about making their cosplays so I really don't want for them to be scammed and I'm just double checking on here in case anyone else has heard anything about this particular person.

It just seems really odd and the one person doesn't even have that many costumes or photos up in either profiles. :/

All I know is that the username tinkerfairy has been a member less than 30 days and shouldn't be using the Marketplace, especially for commissions/selling things since it is against the rules :/

Not having many pics or costumes up isn't proof of anything though, as I don't have many but that's because I'm horribly lazy at getting them up. >.>

Not following the rules is slightly suspicious though.

Harley_Quinn is well-known for making people offers in the old marketplace then disappearing off the face of the planet only to do the same to other sellers. She'd post, "I'll buy it!!" and "I'll buy it!! PM me!!" then not reply back. She took credit for making a rose bride dress that she didn't make. Knowing this, I think it'd be extremely risky to give her a commission for anything since she's a huge flake and isn't what I'd call honest.

hi everyone Tinker Fairy here;
I use to have the Harley Quinn Account; this is true
I never took credit for the FIRST Rose Bride Dress I Bought thanks: I re-made it after gaining a TON of Weight, the Old Dress now belongs to a friend of mine JUST to Clear things up. This Account hasn't been active for very long and I didnt know of the NEW rules.
I would fall off the face of the earth and not reply back to some people due to moving problems YEARS ago...I applogize if I have done this to you Lacey Candy :(

I still ahve no Clue how to get images the Right size up on here and am working it all out; so My applogies again for that

As to my issues with Takaa they are being delt with. Something that was OUT of my control happened, My appendix had to be removed. I couldnt meet the 2 week deadline and am dealing with it with outside sources. So we will work out our thing on our own. If you have any more questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to message me :)
