    • Who: DalmyDoDat (aka SpotMyTots aka Maul_Apparel)
      Where: https://twitter.com/DalmyDoDat
      When: 01/21/2017
      What: Other (Explain Below)

    This happened back in 2017.  I only recently learned that this website exists, so I decided to share my story.
    But first, a brief trip 2 years earlier, to 2015.  Back in 2015, I ordered a hoodie from Dalmy for $80, and it was delivered a few months later at Anthrocon 2015 with no issues.  Fantastic.
    2 years later, in 2017, I placed an order for a second hoodie from him, but the price had jumped to $200.  Okay, no problem.  I paid him in person at his Dealer Table at Anthro New England 2017 and was told verbally that the lead time would be 2-3 weeks.  Here is the line item from American Express’s website and the email receipt from Square:
    On February 6, 2018, I sent a note via the form at http://www.dalmydodatcreations.com/contact/ inquiring about current status of hoodie.  I have no record of receiving a reply.
    On March 1st, 2017, I emailed a note to dalmy@dalmydodat.com asking about the hoodie.  3 days later, I got a bounce back:
    On March 9th, 2017, I pinged Dalmy on Telegram with my measurements, did not receive a response.  I do not believe the Telegram name is public, so I probably should not share a screenshot as per this website’s guidelines.
    On March 11th, 2017, I checked his Twitter feed and saw that he posted a video on February 21st, 2017 that he would be shutting down.  I replied to his tweet inquiring about my commission, and he assured me that my commission would still be completed:
    The refund form referenced was here: http://archive.is/nvm9Q
    This was the followup email I also sent on March 11th, 2017:
    I did not get a reply.
    Strangely enough, 5 months later on July 26th 2017, he posted that he was taking a fursuit commission for a minimum of $1600:
    He then went on to say that it would be his “final commission” “for the foreseeable future”, which contradicts his previous statement to me that my commission would be completed:
    On September 24th, 2017, I sent him a DM in inquiring about a refund and on October 25th, 2017 he replied asking for the "SquareCash information” so he could refund me.  I replied on the same day with the email address the statement had been sent to.  1 month later on November 26th, I followed up again, asking about the refund.  No answer was received.  Screenshot of that conversation:
    I originally paid in person with my AmEx, the window in which to file a chargeback is approximately 60 days from when the charge appears on my statement, so we were well past that point.
    I have written off the $200 as a loss.
