@JrzyGurl:  If she is legit, Etsy will find out and re-open the store I’m sure.  If there is a suspicion of a scammer they have to investigate.  Better safe than sorry.

@JrzyGurl:  I’m not against alluredeluna…. But I do not agree with her business practices, as mentioned in my message to her above. She could have prevented this by contacting the OP directly in a professional and kind manner, rather than confronting her on a public forum with attitude, and no professionalism. IMO.

Sounds to me like she’s pissed off cause she got busted and someone called her out on it.

@Ms.Meghann:  Seems like she got really upset to be called out and have her business ruined, and wanted to defend herself in a public forum. Sure she could have handled it differently, but I would be fired up if someone posted a false bad review for me.

You wanna hear the story? I’m in floral and jewelry business for years,and I heard through word of mouth that a lady is selling her floral supplies very cheap.Long story short – I met Croska,talked with her – and let me tell all of you who spat on me so easily – that woman had a miscarriage and when they opened her they found a cancer.I was so heartbroken when I heard her story that I decided to buy almost everything. She told me that if I want ,I can use her pictures and start something on my own with the bridal bouquets.First I refused,but then she told me that there is nobody to continue her work.She has a small child and now she is too tired and she decided to retire.She haven’t mentioned her fiancial problems,which I assume now are even bigger.

I used her pictures,with her permission to start working and get noticed on Etsy,which obviously worked and after couple of people,who I don’t know,attacked me,reported to Etsy(if for the pictures,they should told me,but not attack me in this way),I’m finding out on Internet that someone accused me for something.On what ground??

and now I ended up without a work in my hands,got all your nasty comments.And you’re asking me how I feel? why there is no kindness in my words? And what in the world I have in common with that weddingwire thing? I’m not even registered there.

I just read JrzyGurl comment and all I can say is Thank you again ladies for all your smart and delightful comments. You just helped me so much.I am wondering how many of you have 3 kids to feed?

JrzyGurl – if this is worth something,your words made my day after such a horiible day.You’re only one in here who has a heart.

Sob story. If it’s real, my condolences, but I don’t buy it. Couldnt she send out a letter to her customers? Put something on her store about what happened? Return some of the money? Nope, the store just closed down and magically someone else bought everything and used every picture and we should all be ASHAMED! No, we weren’t born yesterday.

@GoldfishPie:  Why would I know why she have or haven’t done something? You guys are too paranoid? truth is ,if someone scammed me,I’d be pissed but would never accused without good argument to support my claim.That’s just not morally right. And,seems that this looks like I am her closest friend,Jesus,what’s wrong with you guys>?

Well I don’t know about this alluredeluna person.  But all of the weddingwire reviews for that Coska business (each written by an account that only wrote one review) are so fake they’re pretty amusing. 2 people think they should be in an art museum!

@JrzyGurl:  If her story is real, then yeah I feel for her. But if she’s going to act that way to customer,s then she has something to learn about running a business. You don’t talk that way to customers, even customers of someone you bought a business/supplies from. If it’s her livlihood, then she should learn from this mistake and do better next time. Seriously, who talks to a paying bride like that?

I almost think this thread should be deleted so alluredeluna can stop acting like we are all fools here. I hope no one is buying this… Its a shame how selfish people are these days….

Also, no offense but your English and spelling is really bad. Croska is apparently from Croatia and english is her second language (found that on google) so again what are the chances that she would sell everything to a stranger who also can’t speak English well? Keep going though, this thread is hilarious.

This allure lady seems a bit suspect to me. When people threaten with lawyers over statements posted on a wedding forum, that are based on personal experiences, Ialways doubt their story. Me thinks the lady doth protest too much.
