The original agreement was a commission for $35 involving two characters. This was for an emergency commission post they had made in August.
I sent the payment to them through CashApp, that was their preference and they asked for payment in advance.
Everything was confirmed and they had let me know that they would give me updates as the week goes by. This has not happened at all.
I have not heard anything about my commission so I sent them a message on January 1, 2023. Throughout the entire month of January, I have not heard back even after bumping the message multiple times. Eventually, I request for a refund which has not happened and at this point, I don't think it will happen considering the lack of communication that has happened with my messages. They are active on Twitter and have been posting art and tweets throughout the month so it appears that they are ignoring these messages. Currently my refund request is pending on CashApp and there is not much I can do but hope that they refund me.
Below is proof of payment and the refund request that ended up expiring eventually. Fortunately, I was able to recover the lost funds through my bank.
