  1. If you are forced to utilize Paypal's claims system, it will go through to that email regardless of whether or not you attempt to contact them through it beforehand. Either way the email will come into play whether you intend for it to be used or not. It's not necessarily an invasion of privacy as it does serve as a means of communication that they provided you when you both agreed to the transaction. It should not be explicitly stated as it was an integral part of initiating the transaction in the first place.
  2. You may provide it and staff can amend the tags and other information accordingly. Please take note of item 9 of our commenting rules for aliases. 9. Moderators will not approve an alternate alias unless it's 100% confirmed. No: "similar styles". No: "types the same". Yes: Same email address. Yes: Same art. Yes: Same characters. Yes: Same full name.
  3. It has not been a month since you initiated the transaction with the individual, while I understand it can be frustrating to not have that prompt communication as promised, I would give them until the one month mark to follow-up with the artist in question through another means of social media or the paypal email you were provided. Note you will have 180 days if you do feel the need to open up a case to resolve the transaction, but overall, I think its a matter of patience that should be exercised here before jumping the gun. It's coming off like you expecting the artist to not deliver if you're already worrying about the worst case scenarios. Yes, follow up with them, but I personally would abstain from making demands right out the gate. As you are coming from toyhouse, if you are basing their online activity based off of the public profile activity, it has been known that the way the site tracks the 'last seen' feature is not indicative of them actually having proper activity on site. The lack of any administrators/moderators outside of the sole site owner does not help in clarifying for the community exactly how this feature is supposed to function with regards of tracking individual activity.

    Beware: Naiifu

    Just taking a look at this, from the date you paid for both pieces to now, only 138 days have passed. Paypal's window for claims is 180 days. You are well within your window to submit a claim for a partial refund for the outstanding piece that you've not gotten a response for. It should allow you to enter the amount that you'd like to dispute if you go through with the claims process.

If you have had a similar experience with a Bewaree, please consider submitting your own post to add to our tags and metrics. It greatly boosts visibility for others. However, it must be said, that if you are actively seeking legal action against this bewaree, that we will not accept a submission until the matter is considered resolved by your respective court system. As a third-party entity, Artists Beware will not be involved in posting any active litigation.
  8. We'd just like to clarify, as it's implied there might still be some outstanding work, are you forgiving their debt entirely? We can mark this as resolved for you if this is the case.
  9. For future art trades, I would strongly recommend setting hard deadlines and not providing the full image without some form of heavy watermarking to the other party. Some people may not even finish their end until they see some progress, that way if things stall out? You didn't spend too much effort on your part. And this is just something I observed in the overall post and how you communicated with the artist throughout this endeavor. It isn't right that the artist left you on read, but much of your correspondence regarding a follow-up to the trade does not state intent. Being spammed with nonsense doesn't make someone want to respond, especially if you are unfamiliar with them. While you're both doing the work for fun and in your spare time, it is another form of a transaction and communication should be a bit more formal so there's no mixed messages in the event that things go belly-up for whatever reason. I'd like to be clear that these are just suggestions as someone who's seen this happen quite a bit over the years.

  11. OP has confirmed that they won their case against Victoria. Subsequently, we have been provided public record of this case by Otterlysilly Changed Resolved to Yes Subsequently, this post is now unlocked for comments. Please keep things civil and on-topic.

  13. As a heads up. Looking up their aliases via twitter search shows that they have only changed their handle. the only one that seems to be purged is the pt/pz account. as nothing turns up when you search that handle. these were both found using kirakirakuiin.
