THIS IS A WARNING FOR EVERYONE WHO SELLS THEIR OWN ART OR GOODS! Although the scam took place through Etsy anyone can be a target!!!
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Thanks to someone on DeviantArt who pointing out their account details once again. It looks like i’ve been scammed by the same person (known as (ToxicMutagen or Pixlett on DeviantArt) as mentioned in the journals below . The name and similarities just add up too much to be coincidental!
Two more people who have posted a journal about this scammer:
I recently had someone purchasing two hand-made plushies from my Etsy shop and not a week later after shipping them, they opened a chargeback for one of the two plushies through PayPal with the reason that the transaction was ‘unauthorized’. No matter how hard tried this buyer didn’t respond to any of my emails or messages. because I didn’t have the right documents to proof myself, accoording to payPal, I lost the case. I tried to contact the buyer again afterwards with a last warning that I would share their name if they didn’t respond, which they completely ignored.
Please be VERY ALERT when someone on Etsy by the name of Aednat O’Rinn aka Jake Hrach (their PayPal name) purchases something from you! DO NOT IN ANY SHAPE WAY OR FORM ACCEPT MONEY FROM THIS SCAMMER! CANCEL THE TRANSACTION because they are just looking for a free buy! They will NOT respond and ignore any attempts at conversation no matter how much you try!
If anyone is familiar with this person or has been a victim of his scams PLEASE LET ME KNOW and I will mention you. You are more than welcome to share additional information about this person. Any information is valuable. Scammers shouldn’t get away and continue their shameful acts!
SPREAD THE WORD! I’d hate to see anyone go through a similar situation!

Here are some of my attempts at trying to contact the buyer:
A new patch design that will be available in my etsy shop soon.
There are times when our older cats just can’t stand little Siva XD I would get frustrated too if I had something hyperactive bouncing after me all day and trying to attack and challenge me all the time. So far Moos has shown the most acceptance towards the little invader and their ‘friendship’ has grown to the point where he doesn’t mind Siva choosing him as her personal snuggle buddy for the night. Aren’t they adorable together? <3
Because various people have been asking about these, I decided to revise the multiple-tailed version of my regular fox patch design and add it to my Etsy listings. Meaning you can order these in my shop now ^^
The moment I received this gorgeous red fur I knew I just had make one. :D I needed quite a few reference pictures to get the face markings right, I never knew maned wolves could have so many different looks.
This plush is made of soft high quality luxury fur and minky. The main coat is a lovely dense fox-red, exactly what this species is known for. He has a pair of realistic dark brown eyes and embroidered mouth. The plush is floppy, meaning it is softly stuffed and you can pose it any way you like. Including tail this little guy measures just over 12 inches long.
I honesty don’t know what dog this is ^^’ But just consider it a mutt with some Border Collie in it. I actually saw a dog like this once and I guess that was inspiration for that moment. heh.
But really, I just wanted to use this lovely black and white fur I received with in off cut purchase. I’m usually not very fond of pre-patterned/ marked fur but the feel of this fur is amazingly soft and the black spots are very irregular so it’s very useful actually. This was actually a really fun plush to make because I pretty much cut out random (well mostly) pieces and then sewed them together, not really knowing the final outcome of the markings. c:

After weeks of laborious sewing I can finally present a new plush :D
So…I was a bit too hasty and ordered the wrong color minky in my most recent fabric purchase. I wanted to put some of that fabric to good use. And so this fox came to existence. :D
This little kitsune plush is made with high quality faux fur and minky. The main body fur is <b>really</b> soft to the touch (the texture reminds me of the velvety fur behind a cat or dog’s ear.). The fox has three fluffy tipped tails and a fluffy collar. She has a facetted red (fake) gem on her forehead. To match the magenta accents I gave her a pair of pink eyes with slit pupils.
