  4. as of this point in time i have sent a updated "hey can i get a refund" as you all suggested and thanks for the help with that.. im rather terrible at dealing with being social so i use alot of rp speak.,.. i gotta break that habit i suppose. but as of this point in time they have changed their name once again and are still ghosting any replies
  5. Echoing others, in the future please refrain from talking in RP-speak with artists that you plan on commissioning or do commission. It comes across as uncomfortable and makes the situation more light when you're doing a business transaction, not roleplaying. Personally that would have been a red flag for me right there. Like others have suggested, send a message without RP-speak asking for an update. If you don't hear back from them in a few days I recommend filing a PayPal claim if the window is still open for one. The artist has ghosted you for two months, I can't imagine they plan on completing the work now.
  6. Final notice on this. After paying the user, they sent me the files for the character I adopted and everything seems to have gone well. Hopefully they'll take the advice I gave them thanks to everyone's input. I think at this point the staff can close this thread if they want to as there's noting else to add. Thank you everyone.
  7. Changed Resolved to Yes The artist contacted us with proof that this was resolved. Submitters, please remember to contact staff or leave a comment if you've gotten resolution so that we can change the status on a post.
  8. Last week
  9. Hi again everyone, just through I'd give you all an update. The user in question responded with a simple "pay as it will be more convenient for you" which isn't too bad as I've sent it with buyers protection, plus a bit of extra money to cover the fees. I also relied to them telling them what I've done and advised that they don't ask for friends and family in future, and attempted to tell them the dangers of doing that. So I'm optimistic, but still concerned. I don't think English is their first language so they might struggle to understand, what I've said. Concerning contacting previous buyers, one said they didn't even get suggested to send through friends and family, the other said they just send it with the buyers protection and covered the cost of the fee's themselves. So again, I'm hopeful but still a little suspect. I'll see how things go. Thanks again for the advice. it really helped.
  10. The user also has a patreon as well from their twitter link. https://www.patreon.com/akkoh Also found the DA as well as facebook which is NSFW. https://www.facebook.com/AkkohLoko/ https://www.facebook.com/AkkohLoko/

    Beware Akkoh Draws

    Their anatomy lacks of consistence a lot, wouldn't be surpriced they traced :x. Also, for the client, you can fill a chargeback in paypal, better do it before 6 months has happened.

  14. Changed Resolved to Yes
  15. Author finally reached out July 24th, 2020 on FurAffinity and then promptly sent me my full refund. Uncertain what prompted the author to reach out finally but I have received my refund now. Just figured an update would be good to give.
  16. Hey guys thanks for the advice (both on here and the comments I've seen on the post of this by AB on Twitter). I've since responded to the adopt seller in question, and said "Hi, sorry but I'm not willing to send the money via Friends and Family, as that not only robs me of any protection provided by PayPal it's also a tactic used by scammers. Besides that it's also against the Terms of Service of PayPal as it's deemed an attempt to dodge paying the fees they charge, which could result in both of us having our PayPal accounts closed and all the money contained within it would be taken by PayPal without any way to recover it, as we both agreed the moment we made a PayPal account. If you demand I send it through Friends and Family then I'll have to withdraw my offer." The person in question's gallery isn't very large and only has adopts that look like they were all made with bases, makes me concerned, so I'm going to contact anyone else that looks like they've bought one and see how things went for them. Again, thanks for the advice.
  17. Nothing to add, just backing up what RTKobold and Bornes have said.
  18. If it's a paypal.me link you might be able to switch it to the goods and services option before you pay on your own. If you can't do that, contact the seller and ask them to send you an invoice so you can pay for it that way. If they refuse, say you're no longer interested.
  19. I would say no since sending money through Friends and Family robs you of paypal protection. Plus something like that seems quite shady.
  20. Hi everyone, Recently I went to purchase an adopt from someone, but when they sent me a note today about buying it they wanted me to send the money through the Friends and Family option. To be clear I haven't sent any money yet, I'm just a tad worried about them possibly being a scammer. I guess what I want to know is, what should I say back to them?
  21. Hello there, I am Kitteh6660 and I'd thought I would share a bad experience with what I had with the artist. As of the time of writing, I never received the icon and the artist likely has forgotten about that. It all started out back in June 2018 when I saw an offer for a cute icon and I'd thought, why not? A cheap art for a cute icon I would use for my profile. It all started out by sending notes and discussing what I wanted: an icon of me drinking a root beer. Innocent and simple, right? It's the type of icon that could be finished in a relatively short time. I paid the invoice back then and hoped for the art to come. I even got a WIP but then it abruptly never got finished. And the WIPs are deleted for some reason. Unfortunately, it's way past the 6 month deadline for a refund so that is no longer possible. The WIPs were deleted. Sadly. I once had contact of her on Discord but the text message logs just vanished and I can no longer retrieve the messages. She once had a server but it was also deleted. I don't think she's even on Discord anymore. I know $7.00 USD isn't a lot but I am very upset. I am a forgiving person but if I can ever get the finished artwork, I'd completely forgive her. Her FA profile but she seems to no longer be active as her last activity seems to be a year ago: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/sinnamon-queen As of today, I never even got the artwork and none of the submissions on my gallery are from her. It's supposed to be a headshot commission with a root beer.
  22. I purchased a YCH from this artist in 2017, I received no art and no refund. On the positive side I did receive more excuses than I paid for, hidden bonus! I waited too long to dispute with PayPal. Owie. 😞

  24. Same experience. Only reason why I was able to receive my piece was hounding them in notes on FA. The piece was themed for the new year and a gift for my husband. I didn't receive it til End of Jan/February. The two characters came out great but the background was never even finished.
  25. I had contacted them in March because I really enjoyed their art and they were open for commissions. We had talked a bit and and settled on a three character commission. The price was really cheap essentially being 1 usd per character. However I paid them and they never delivered, I went back to check on them and they said they had “personal problems” jump forward months later, today I went to check up on them only to find out I was blocked. I’m not complaining about the fact I lost about 3 Usd but more of the fact that they took the money and ran.
  26. I’ve had easily the best experience with Ukaisensei and I’ve commissioned them multiple times. They’re mainly active on twitter under the user: https://twitter.com/Ukaisensei?s=21 I first commissioned them back in around May/June with a design of a character but without a reference image. They did an amazing job making what I was envisioning on five different occasions. They were so positive and friendly, to the point I found myself having casual conversations with them too as it was simply so easy to feel comfortable with them. Their turnaround time is super fast too, with a finished delivery time maxed out at two days (and that was for a four character full body shaded piece). For my one-two character commissioned they took less than a day, or a day, maximum to have them finished and kept me updated every step of the way. Overall, I had an incredible experience with them and would 100% recommend them. Attatched are 3/5 of the pieces i’ve commissioned (the others are on another device)
  27. There's some issues here that are certainly rookie mistakes on the Artist's part. When receiving the incorrect fabric, she should have contacted the seller and informed them she was shipped the wrong fabric and informed you of the wait. But I suspect that due to the absurdly tight deadline, and the fact that she didn't get the fabric until the 14th, she felt pressured to get the work done with what she had. And it was also her fault for agreeing to such a narrow deadline, and I hope she doesn't do that to herself again. These are the only reasons we have for edging this into a caution, just barely. You however, are not in the right, either. If the dimples in the fabric were that much of an issue for you, you should have brought this up the moment you saw it. You claim it was due to your lack of experience, and I can understand that in some regard, but I'm surprised you didn't even ask just to make sure. Then going further, when the paws are finally done you bring up the dimples in a very 'oh well, guess it'll do' manner and never mention at all that it bothers you. The whole conversation is very friendly and even sympathetic to the fabric mixup which would give any artist the sense that you approved of it and the issue was only minor. Then suddenly it's 'well since the fabric is bad you should comp me 40$ in shipping instead', and I can absolutely see why it feels like a scam on her part, due to your guilt tripping over something you just moments ago gave the impression you were fine with. Now, let me lay down a few things in front of you in case you didn't notice. You ordered 2 paws to be completed within 4 weeks time, yet the way you write this out makes it sound like this is somehow a long wait, and I have to tell you, it's not. That kind of turn around is absurdly fast. Next, the total price for the 2 paws is 190$, including standard shipping and this was made very clear from the very beginning, the artist in no way promised you express shipping. You made assumptions about how the shipping would work ("I just thought you would put them in a flatrate box") and didn't bother asking about shipping options at all before starting even FULL WELL KNOWING, the artist intended to ship the product out by the 27th of July. Next, The artist got the fabric on the 14th and finished the paws on the 19th. FIVE DAYS!!! That is the most incredible turn around time for 2 hand paws, so fast that is basically a rush job. So she bundles the cost of the paws and shipping for you, and provides you a rush service, and you come around and demand she shell out 40$ for a shipping type you never stated you wanted ahead of time for a product you just told her was fine as-is. All she asked for was 10$ for the fix, 10$. Because she's doing a rush service on top of a rush service, because she's doing her best to get it mailed out to you in the time specified. Like I said in the beginning paragraph, she should have informed you of the error of the fabric she received, but you should have brought up your dissatisfaction sooner and have even the slightest bit of perspective on how much work she's put into getting that done in such a short amount of time. And just some personal nickpicks because I'm still baffled by your conduct, you stated 2-day shipping and requested it multiple times, and you have the audacity to claim you never asked for 2-day shipping? It's literally right there, in the very screen caps you gave us. And what kind of person orders something like this a month before they're supposed to move? Any sensible person would have waited until after they were settled with the new address to have something shipped to them to ensure that it they received it at the address they would be living at. I strongly suggest you do that next time instead of expecting an artist to crunch to your timeline.
  28. I may be reading this wrong, but it looks like you expressed approval at multiple WIP stages, without bringing up the minky pattern sooner. That's on you - I would also be p*ssed, as the artist, if you tried pulling the 'it's not how I wanted it' later after (seemingly) approving the earlier wips. The first time you even mention it is once one paw is fully completed. HOWEVER. They were also in the wrong, definitely, by not clearing that pattern with you first. When the fabric arrived is when it should have been sent back (if they really did order plain / flat), or confirmed with the commissioner that the change would be okay. Anyway, I've read that you can flatten the dimples out of dimpled minkey with an iron on low and a bit of cotton between them. Take due care though, as too high heat will melt minky. But it will flatten the dimples if you're careful.
  29. For anyone who might be visually impaired like me, and are thus unable to to see what's wrong with the heart on the paw: The heart is made with minky dimple/ dot fabric instead of solid/ plain fabric. As a member: The artist should have notified you about the error. If they ordered a solid and got a dimpled fabric, then that's a mistake on behalf of the supplier. You would have missed your deadline, but it would have been right. It's a simple rookie mistake. However, I don't think you're due expedited shipping because of it.
