I heard Deseret Tavares on the Lance Bass Radio Show. She was touted as an all knowing Celebrity Psychic. So I called the Mystics Altar and booked a half hour appt for $150.00 for a reading. I showed up a the store and was treated very rudely... Also Deseret was an hour and a half late, and did not even apologize for making me wait. In the reading she proceeded to tell that my Dead Mother (My mother is still alive and well) was trying to protect me from dark issues that were attacking me. She then led me into the store and told me that I needed special Mystical Body Wash, and soap and perfumes and sprays- all adding up to over $386.00 on top of the reading. So I thought OK... let's see... So I bought the products and was also told that I would have to have her come out to my home and do a cleaning of the dark energy and that would only cost me $500.00. I said I would think about it. Her stooge at the register ( a long heaired hippee) then try to talk me into booking a second appt. I said I would call back and left. I then sat in my car and watched over the next three hours, three other people go in and exit with a bag as big as mine. When I confronted them, they had the same story. DARK BOOGEYMAN were after them and they purchased the soaps, the spray, the bodywash etc.... I walked back in and confronted her..She told me to get out of her store... I told her I was going to drop a house on her. DESERET TAVARES HAS NO INTEGRITY- SHE IS A FAKE WHO PREAYS ON PEOPLE TELLING THEM SHE MAKES MAGIC SOAP. Buyer beware and avoid her store completely.

Your Still Hiding.....

AUTHOR: The Wishing Fairy - (United States of America)

First off I can not wait
to hear from your "LAYERS" I am not sure what that is... but it
should be interesting.



You still have not addressed this issue... you
called me a liar in a public forum and now you want to settle behind closed
doors, why not settle here in the public. I have nothing to hide. and for the
record... I have never worked for you. So your barking up the wrong tree. 



And as far as a Wolf or a Sheep....? I never
claimed to be this all knowing, all healing loving individual.... Your website
makes that claim... funny not one celebrity listed there or on your Google
listings will confirm or endorse you. Finally..... This was never about a
REFUND.... because your website states THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.



So the only reason you would grant a refund in
 this case, is to shut someone up. WELL I AM NOT GOING TO QUIET..... And
your not going to shut me up.



So please bring LAYER's, I can not wait to hear
what they have to say...?

I ask again.... just list your prices here and
prove that I am liar. By the way: FOR THE RECORD I NEVER CLAIMED THE PHOTO I
USED WAS MINE... it is from your website.... right next to where it says YOU
HAVE A NO REFUND POLICY.



You are a Sad, over-the-hill, woman, who is all
alone, and is trying to hold onto to one last string of power..... Threat's,
Bullying, and Lie's are not power or Mystical - they are the tricks of s side
show charlatan, a Fake - a Pretender...



So I will wait here with my Receipt, My Products
and Bank Statement and I will wait for your LAYER'S to contact me.



In the mean time you may want to ponder (that
means to think on)... there are real people of power in the Metaphysical
community, people who are respected and who have been around for years; (coming
from a reporters background) I asked their opinion of you (without telling them
my personal situation) in short and simple.... you are neither thought of or
taken seriously.... you afforded a fancy store, and have pictures with
celebrities, that when confronted will not vouch for your talent or it's
effect.



You are a sad lonely woman, who is still using a
photo that is at least 15 years younger than the person I met face to face.
Stop taking advantage of the poor, stop making them believe that your rocks and
soaps have power to change their lives....



Because at some point - years from now -
 your going to stand before something greater than yourself, (give it what
ever name you like God, Buddha, The Source...) and I would hate to have to
answer for all the people  you have hurt .



Funny if you were really in the RIGHT, AND YOUR
WERE REALLY ALL KNOWING AND ALL POWERFUL... you would not need Lawyers (By the
way - that's the correct spelling) you would not need IP addresses ..... you
would not even waste your time with what I am writing... because your are in
the RIGHT.



The Dali Lama has never had to use any of these
tools, Mother Teresa never had to use any of these tools, and Buddha never had
to use any of these tools....



So instead of using your POWER - or your witch
doctor's.... your using what any normal GUILTY mortal would use... LAYERS and
IP addresses



Your every action proves my point...

Look in the mirror without your makeup and
realize the ugly, sad person you are.

And then use the power to change it..

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Again hostile employee

AUTHOR: Tavares Deseret - (United States of America)

Dear Wishing Fairies...

All of the reports you have filed in this website and other websites are false.  These reports are now been forward to our layers.  At this time we have tracked the IP address you are using and we know who you are.

Everyone knows that anyone who has a valid complain would of come into the store and asked for a refund or asked to speak to me directly so the fact that you did not come in and NEVER purchased the products you claim you purchased and refuse to provide valid proof of purchase clearly shows your reports are false.

You have not only lied about the whole thing but you have used our website picture as your proof of purchase (http://stores.themysticsaltar.com/-strse-329/Mystic-Alterations-Altar-Deseret/Detail.bok) this proves that you are not only trying to ruin the reputation the store but also mine as well.  Your intentions are not to get a refund or resolve anything ass there is nothing to resolve here because your accusations are false, in fact you do not have a valid claim the only thing you are trying to accomplish here is to trash my name.  You will not accomplish that, people will see it.  

You can file as many false reports against me, lie and come up with false accusations, cast spells against me but in the end the truth will always come out.  

 If you had a valid claim against my store you would show real proof and not use a picture taken from my website like the one you have posted here.  Here is the website link that shows where you got the picture from.  Where is your picture?  http://stores.themysticsaltar.com/-strse-329/Mystic-Alterations-Altar-Deseret/Detail.bok

Most people move on, find better jobs and grow and eventually become successful at something.  Why don't you try to use all of your energy and do something grater than this? Put your energy into doing something positive something much grater than destroying other peoples life.  Look at the world you live in, look at yourself, take care of your kid, change the world with each action, thought and energy you generate take care of your animals find happiness in simple things, do something bigger than you, make your dreams come true and live your life happy.  I encourage you to be the bigger person to shine and share your inner light with the world I know you have it within yourself to share it.  Believe me we have so much anger, hate and violence in the world and what you are doing is generating more darkness by simply being part of that energy when you should be helping the planet evolve especially at this time when we are transitioning to a different frequency into a new era, don't destroy it, don't create any more darkness.

It has been an interesting learning experience these last 4 to 5 months, I have also learned a lot from all of you.  Thank you for showing me that no matter what you do for people or how much you try to help them, or how much you give them they will never appreciate what you do for them.

Sheep's in wolves clothing like you said....  So true, I am also very thankful for the experience, good or bad it is an experience I needed and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to get to you know better and teach me to be more selective with those who approach me, I have seen who all of you really are.

Thank you again for the priceless experience and most important for being who you are.

Witches Hollow interesting name!!

I will not respond to your false allegations any more.  

Bless it be

I have two Wittness's ... And your still HIDING

AUTHOR: The Wishing Fairy - (United States of America)

You have a sign that states NO REFUNDS, and the young man with long hair behind the counter told me there were NO REFUNDS. As a matter of fact, I over heard you argue with a lady over a $4.00 refund and that you would not give it. And all of a sudden you had a change of heart... and your willing to refund my money.... First off to have a change of heart... you would need to have one.... Secondly... why are you agreeing to refund my money, when you said you knew I was Liar... I ask you... shouldn't a well known Celebrity Psychic have known all of this already, and shouldn't you have seen this coming. I mean your job is telling the future.

And the refund you offer is not the issue.... I asked you to post your prices HERE... AND YOUR HIDING.... I asked you to display them here... where you called me a liar... and now your avoiding the issue entirely. I actually don't want a refund.... I am taking my products and having them examined. You state that these Sprays and Soaps can change a person's energy. I even heard you say that on the Lance Bass show (which I down-loaded a copy).

I looked it up on line, since Acupuncture is now allowed by most major insurance companies, and it is monitored and a approved as a medical treatment - dealing with the energy of the body and changing it. Medical products must be approved by law.

Your products (claiming the same thing - to change a persons energy. These were your words from the Radio Show) should be held just as accountable. Especially since your label has no disclaimer or waiver attached. So with no waiver or disclaimer stating that this is for entertainment purposes... or to use at my own risk.... and this product is going to change my energy. Now if someone has a pace maker, or they suffer from High Blood Pressure or Diabetes - changing their energy could deadly. Especially when you sell a product line that claims "healing".... Somebody taking your advice to heart could end up killing themselves.

But that is far from the point of this conversation.... and that is for the local authorities to investigate. 
Back to my point... 
So I am still waiting... for your to post your PRICE LIST and prove to everyone that I am a liar. It's a little hard to do when I am telling the truth and I am doing my homework and my research.

PS: The lady who you refused to refund $4.00 , has agreed to speak her part or testify to her situation and interaction with you - should the occasion arise.

So are you going to continue hiding....?

Invalid claim

AUTHOR: Tavares Deseret - (United States of America)

Dear Wishing Fairy;

If what you seek is to get a refund than we can refund your money.  

Again, please provide me with your name and phone number so I can look into this matter and contact you directly and reverse the charges.  In 15 years I have never gotten a complain from anyone so it is surprising that you claim to have had a bad experience, but like I said before I am happy to refund the money you spend at my store.
 
Once again I encourage you to come by my office so we can correct the problem.   Otherwise there is not much I can do for you since you will not even provide me with your real name.  If you are unwilling to come in to return the merchandise there is not much I can do for you on this board.  

For your convenience we are open Monday to Saturday from 10:00AM to 8:00PM.

I am sure you know which store I will be at today so, I will await for your visit today before 7PM.

Thank you and I look forward to meeting you.

No No No.... Your Hiding From Me....

AUTHOR: The Wishing Fairy - (United States of America)

My my what a change of tune... from calling me a liar... to "Dear Customer..." amazing... how you never addressed any of the requests...

So I will state them again... Since I am a liar .... per your statement above... I want this issue resolved where everyone can see...
 All I asked is that you list your prices here... and I will post my receipt, and my bank statement and pictures of the product... now you want me to come into the stoe and resolve the matter...

NO - you made  a claim, now back it up. Post your prices here, and I will post my receipt so everyone who is watching this can see the turh.

YOUR NOTHING BUT A CHEAP SCAM GYPSY FORTUNE TELLER - touting body sprays and soaps that will change your future.

I was willing to let this go, not you've made it interesting. Especially with such a professional statement above... so nice and calm... Face it your a are FRAUD and you know it. I called into the Lance Bass show two nights ago and asked if they endorsed you... they said "NO". As a matter of fact they stated they you GAVE AWAY YOUR READINGS TO THEM FOR FREE...! But yet the man who has little funds, trying to illegal hide from the immigration department, you charge over $250.00 to. I told them what happened to me and sent them copie of my receipt and picturesof the products and they said they would be interested to know how this turns out...

So you charge the poor and middle class, and you give it away to the celebrity...That's not enlightened and empowered.... THAT'S FUCKED UP...!

So let's finish this as we started it.... RIGHT HERE IN THE PUBLIC VIEW.... not hiding behind the closed doors of your office...

As a matter of fact I would be happy to do this on the Radio and present all my evidence.
Including the name of the gentleman who you are (and I use the term loosely) magically helping avoid the United States Immigration Service.

"How can you sleep at night...?"

PERFECT.....YOU MISSED THE POINT

AUTHOR: The Wishing Fairy - (United States of America)

I will happily post my receipt and pictures of the products, after you post your prices for all to see. For being a so called celebrity psychic, your missing the fucking point. 

YOUR TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE WEAK AND CHARGING PRICES THAT ARE ASTRONOMICAL, you fool these people into believing in you. And they are afraid if they dont buy your service or product something evil will happen to them. Also there is a question of legality... one of the men I spoke t, said you were doing a cleaning on him so that immigration would not find him. So you as a person of supposed integrity and ethics, would help someone break the law. What a fucking joke.

I don't  claim to be enlightened or empowered. I am as heathen as they come. but I do know this much. A true enlightened person would never call another person a liar. They would use compassion and wisdom to teach them they were wrong. Your true colors are showing.

Just because you can quote Buddha and Ghandi, wont make you a Saint.
As a matter of fact I don't think Buddha has body wash or Ghandi had a body spray.

Shame on you. Your know better than a Gypsy Fortune teller. Using fear to create power. I checked on your reputation with the Psychic Eye and Pan's Pipes, and they have the same shared opinion of you.

So you post your prices for your services here and I wil post my receipt, my bank statement and pictures of the products I purchased.

You really want to enlighten and empower the world.... stop telling people a body spray will change their future or a soap will bring them love...

I'm waiting.

Where is your receipt?   You do not have one because you did not get a reading nor did you buy any products.  You are lying.

YOU NEVER SAID THE COMPLAINT WAS NOT TRUE

AUTHOR: The Wishing Fairy - (United States of America)

Just thought about it... Your a Psychic....? And you did'nt know that the staff you had would be a problem. I thought your job was predicting the future.

Funny how you blame ex-staff. Sorry dear, never have worked for you and if you were Psychic, you would know that. Also you never addressed the PRICES THAT YOU CHARGE PEOPLE ARE RIDICULOUS AND UNFAIR. You talk about integrity, look in the mirror... when you can charge someone $150 for a reading for 30 minutes and not be accurate.... 

You fake taking the noble high ground.... but the truth is very evident. If you truly want to empower and help people... List your prices here for everyone to see...

I was going to leave you alone and write off the cost as a lesson well learnred. But if your going to play high and mighty.... Put your money where your mouth is... List your prices for all to see... and let's see a prediction or two that should come to pass in the next six months... I read your BIO... prove to me that taking $150.00 from people who can barely afford it and giving them false hope is worth it. I mean you tell people that a BATHWASH will help them... It's soap.

If anyone else out there has had an issue with DESERET TAVARAES or the MYSTIC'S ALTAR, please post or state your opinion.

Don't let this Gypsy Fortune Teller, hurt anymore people.

Deseret Tavares The Mystic's Altar

AUTHOR: Tavares Deseret - (United States of America)

We have recently had a lot of problems with our staff, luckily these staff members have left our store.   It is clear that this report has been filed by the staff members who are no longer with us.  

I am proud to say that our business has an excellent reputation, we have been in business for over 5 years and no one has ever complained or left the store with a bad experience.

I advice who ever has posted this complain to provide all of us with a copy of your receipt for both the products you claim to have bought and the readings you claim you had.  

If you are unable to provide the public with these receipts as your proof than your accusations are not valid. 

I want to take a minute to apologize to everyone for any inconvenience or problems you may have had with any of our previous staff.  Please know that that we have corrected the problem and these individuals who have caused a great deal of problems for both the store and our clients no longer work at our establishment. 

Integrity, Empowering and Enlightening is our mission and only reason why the store was opened.  Our mission is to help you grow in hopes you may also find the light within your soul and know the truth and reason of your existence.   

We are here to help you on your journey each step of the way as you discover the essence of who you are and purpose as to why you are here.   All of us here at The Mystic's Altar are here to help you, guide you as we share our own light and and as that light grows with each lesson and every experience we make an effort to learn from you and others by learning from your experiences and also from our mistakes. 

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world.- Mahatma Gandhi

Thank you for your support, we look forward to serving you.
