I paid www.etsy.com/shop/stylemesweetdesign $355 on July 29, 2011 and was promised in writing an awsome custom designed blog.  For months after I was put off and repeated told by Mandy (Amanda) that she was working on it or my child is sick again I couldn't work on it this week or my dog just died and I am in mourning (seriously).  Finally after never having received this awsome blog on Nov 7th, I demanded a refund and the nightmare began!  Mandy refused to return my money!  I treated to report her to Paypal and Etsy and she said to much time have now passed and that I was just screwed!!!!  I contacted Paypal and the time frame was confirmed, Paypal said I could still file a complaint but having paid through them that they could not get me a refund.  They also suggested that I file a complaint with IC3.com.  After informing Mandy of this she said she would issue me a small refund to show good faith in case Paypal or someone else tried to come after her (I have all the emails).  She also told me that if I contact her again about any money that "quote" ..my husband is a lawyer and i will sue you! and trust me i will!!!.. "unquote".  I put a copy of this email on her facebook and she blocked my access, then she blocked me from sending her any future emails through hotmail.  She Ripped Me Off!  Please don't let her get away with this!

POSTED BY ANOTHER CUSTOMER WHO WAS RIPPED OFF!

Hi. I was told by an attorney I would need a name.  I could not find out what state her/ his llc was registered in.   I have a background in computer engineering and I found one of three houses I think this person resides in by tracing the ip address.  I basically hit a roadblock.  There is a reason why this person stays hidden.  I found a number of people on the Internet claiming that he/she is stealing their graphic images.

> My name is Judi nice to meet you wish it was different circumstances. I too have been scammed by this couple and like you I am waiting for Mandy's response to my complaint. I am having her investigated and I will let you know the outcome. I been able to establish a pattern of behavior and thank you for posting. I know that you tranasction took place in 2011 and I am wondering if you could take the time to review an email that I would like to send to the BBB in both Canada and US along with Paypal and Etsy.

A lot more proof of dishonesty with this graphic SCAM ''ARTIST''

AUTHOR: Scammerssucketh - (Canada)

I was browsing 'ripoffreport.com" for new Etsy complaints and I came across this report about Etsy seller stylemesweetdesign ''. And 2 of her negative feedback comments  got me poking in her shop. And this is what I found [below]Let me start by saying:. I am a logo creator myself, and I when first started  graphic design in school/class, our teacher would get us to check stock sites to get inspiration, and to view examples of designs she wanted us to design for her. WELL  when I came across this article on RipOffReport.com I was curious and checked out  stylemesweetdesign shop listings, and what I found was disgusting! I found images that I distinctively remembered   from the stock image sites I browsed while in school! LOL (I have an elephant brain) And there are 2 lengthy negatives that accused her of lying, and using stock illustrations. AFTER stating she HAND DRAWS every one of a  her 'one of a kind' designs!  

So...long story short. Amanda/Mandy of Style Me Sweet Design is claiming her "custom" logo work as HER own, BUT  she is lying scam artist. She isreally stealing images from REAL graphic artists who post their portfolios on Stock image sites (ie: Istock, dreamstime and others) and charging people a fortune for them...as her own.

Here are a few examples. Oh and I have already contacted Pichayasri (the most used designers she steals from, and no, they are NOT the same person, I contacted Pichayasri myself via dreamstime) So she cannot claim those are HER images on said stock photo sites! And even IF they were, remember.. she claims in her shop listings; every design (in her shop) is 'One of a kind items "HAND drawn by HER"  tailored for her customers.She even stole WORDS [Her listing description] from yet another logo designer! Word for word. Yawn. HERE http://infocomsolutions.in/services/logo-design/   

Now here are a few examples of her stolen OOAK designs 

Here is a cupcake design she claims to have made for 'Cherry on Top' .com. When you check this site that logo isn't even ON it!http://img1.etsystatic.com/il_fullxfull.190929285.jpgListing:http://www.etsy.com/transaction/37468431 Now here s the SAME cupcake a stock site created by Pichayasri. The ACTUAL artist.http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photography-cupcake-image13392577
Here is ''her'' design of a little girl in bed. http://img2.etsystatic.com/il_fullxfull.190929286.jpgListing: http://www.etsy.com/transaction/37468431Stock site link http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photography-girl-sleeping-image14022527
Now this image is from a totally different designer on the stock site than the one aboveNotice 'One of a Kind-  'never resold' directly in the listing title! Ugh! Listing- http://www.etsy.com/transaction/39779413The same image owned by Relato on Dreamstime stick site.http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-cherry-tree-image16109561

'Her' image of a flying fairy (in the first box)http://www.etsy.com/transaction/40663549Closer image http://img0.etsystatic.com/il_fullxfull.202800212.jpgSame image on Dreamstime stock by designer ''Lordalea'' A DIFFERENT designer again!http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-images-cute-fairy-princess-character-isolated-on-white-image14364719The little kids in bed are also an image belonging to the same designer.Here http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-images-siblings-boy-and-girl-sleeping-in-bed-image14363194
The third image box in this listing shows a set of pink kitchen items [tea pot, sugar cup and cupcake] made into a 'logo'  OOAK Listing-http://www.etsy.com/transaction/41381572Direct image-http://img1.etsystatic.com/il_fullxfull.192550561.jpgSame image[s] on Dreamstime stock- http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photos-coffee-set-or-tea-set-and-cup-cake-image14022538

Last one, although I CAN continue..but you catch my drift. LOLHere is "her" hand drawn Hibiscus flower logo.http://www.etsy.com/listing/86565355/premade-photography-logo-watermarkSAME logo here but with shadow added and reversed. :)http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-hibiscus-image17298391
