  • Beware: BluHuny


    VarekWolf
    • Who: BluHuny
      Where: Telegram @Bluhuny
      Telegram @SpaceDoggo
      Telegram channel: Bluhuny Queue
      FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/bluhuny/
      When: 05/15/2019
      What: Commission


    Based on a prior satisfactory experience I commissioned BluHuny for a half-body name badge at BLFC in May, 2019. The commission was fully paid, $150, by credit card at the con. The commission was accepted and acknowledgement sent. I was #41 in the BLFC queue. BluHuny still had a considerable backlog of commissions from GSFC and did not start BLFC commissions until August 17. BluHuny promised to complete all BLFC commissions in 4 weeks. I sent in a ref sheet for my badge.

    BluHuny took a break of several days in early September to begin school. By this point 14 completed BLFC commissions had been posted on his telegram channel. However, updates to the channel, other than two posts promising to get back to work on art, ceased.  There has been no communication from the artist and his FA is inactive. His personal telegram states not to contact him regarding commissions. I have no way to ascertain whether the commission will ever be completed.

    Telegram posts and detail line from my  credit card statement attached.

    I had similar issues with BluHuny myself earlier this year, but once I made it clear that I wanted a refund, he actually followed through with it.
    Though with quite an arrogant attitude about it tbh.

    I see that in his telegram group, he outright states that he should be contacted on his new account?
    It's really confusing, and honestly, he's very disorganized as far as his work ethic and the way he handles his backlog, so I would not be surprised if it was some form of deterrent to avoid backlash in this format.

    This is directly from the queue group, but its almost coming up on One Month since the last update they made on it, the 28th, like seen in your caps.
    I'd say just directly contact him, to at least state you'd like a refund and give him an ETA of about a 48 hours to respond, then go through your credit card company to file the chargeback if he is not willing to work with you.

    I have seen other dissatisfied BLFC customers posting about him sporadically on social media, so I don't think you're the only one whos wholly dissatisfied with his lack of professionalism with his own work.

    Oh! And if you still have access to the Queue Channel, it'd be worth scrolling up to grab the ""VIP"" discord link, as it is entirely possible that BluHuny might be avoiding telegram and tending to the other platform. Though, from what I saw there, its a really quiet/dead server s:

    Go through your CC company and get a refund. You can always pay them via paypal if they ever do the badge.

    I would 100% force that refund. You have proof they haven't done anything and paypal and your credit card company will back you up on this. I have seen how fast they can work and it really is a shame to see yet another beware on them. I saw they are going to be attending more cons. You have a right as a customer to know what is going on with what you paid for, I personally would be messaging them on their personal account or just about anywhere I can find them. That's a lot of money for a badge and it should have been completed by now. 

    I would either message them about it, or just straight up get your money back.

    Hey OP, have you tried contacting Bluhuny since you made your post?

    Local friends of mine who attended PawCon this past weekend as vendors were stationed near his booth, where he was also vending.
    As I was told by him when I attempted to commission him back in January, he "only" opens up slots for more commissions via Cons as a vendor, so there's a strong possibility that the queue has grown since you made your post here.

    Definitely push for your refund before it gets buried with his backlog!

    I was at PAWCon and asked the artist about my badge. He said he was very slowly working through his backlog. According to what he said there are a lot more badges in the queue after mine. 

    Not wanting to make a scene in a crowded dealer's room I did not press the matter in person. 

    He was not taking badge commissions at the con, just some quick sketches. There was a note at his table that he'd be opening for commissions after finals.

    You're getting EXTREMELY close to the end of your six month window, Varek.
    I wouldn't let this go past that at all with the amount of money you paid for the badge, go through paypal for your refund, or you're without options afterwards 😞

    As this commission was paid by credit card at BLFC and not through PayPal I've opened a dispute with my credit card issuer. BluHuny has 45 days to respond and clear the dispute or I will have my money back.
