  • Beware - TankDragon

    • Who: TankDragon
      Where: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/tankdragon and https://twitter.com/dragonBoy238
      When: 11/28/2019
      What: Commission

      Resolved

    TankDragon ran a Black Friday sale (Link: https://www.furaffinity.net/view/34004858/ ) nearly 6 months ago, in which I bought for $35 (before PayPal fees) as advertised. It was an advertised post about comic-style fully shaded pictures for $35 or more.

    The following are the messages (in order too,, same day sent) I sent and he sent to confirm and get a slot for the art:

    Post 3 [5 months later, I ask for a refund request, as he is active little to none at this point]

    I have not heard from him back from either FurAffinity or Twitter.

    Albiet I did not do much interaction on Twitter to actually talk to him, he has been very active on his Twitter feed just by visiting his account. Plus, I posted when he was most active around that time too, enough to notice the messages.

    PayPal receipt:

    I did not do much interaction or forcefully getting a WiP.

    I do not know how to do a chargeback, I've tried starting a dispute with PayPal because I have not technically gone past the 18- day mark, but there doesn't seem to be any options to do so other than an unauthorized payment (which is not the case). I might check with my bank, but this Covid-19 pandemic might just be that thing that prevents any actual refunds happening, unless you know, TankDragon coughs up his end of the deal.

    Even the slightest sketch compensation is something, but we may never know.

    There's a reason you can't file a chargeback. I was wondering why you were charged 36$ when it was 35.

    Only when you pay via Friends and Family through a card do you the sender get the fee.

    You cannot chargeback that method because F&F is essentially giving them money with no strings attached. It is against Paypal's policy to charge customers through F&F, so you can report that to Paypal; you have the evidence.

    But let this be a lesson to you: Never. Ever. Pay. Via. Friends. And. Family.

    I would call paypal and tell them the seller told you to send as F&F, and you might get some help. If you go through their contact me page, you are sometimes given a unique code that makes the call even faster. Explain you have not gotten the image you bought, and the seller is ignoring. It's against PP terms to send as F&F to avoid fees. Do not mention it is an 18+ purchase (if it was nsfw) cause you may be completely out of luck, as they dont allow NSFW art sales.

    I sent PayPal a message because their phone lines are closed because of Covid-19 stuff. I messaged them in detail, so hopefully there is some light in the tunnel here.

    I got my art forcefully, guy seems to be active a bit and started posting art, but I dunno if they're recent commissions from a month ago or commissions from February 2019. All I know is, be wary.
