WHO: Swizzlestix, Swizz

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/swizzlestix
https://inkbunny.net/Swizzlestix (banned)

WHAT: $85 USD digital art commission for two characters

WHEN: I contacted Swizzlestix on Inkbunny on October the 13th and began a conversation about purchasing a commission. On October the 15th I sent an $85 USD payment through paypal and was told the commission would take between 2-3 weeks. This was the last time Swizzlestix talked to me about my commission despite my attempts to contact him.

(2nd email demanding refund)

EXPLAIN: Having paid Swizzlestix on October the 15th I patiently waited about a month before messaging him through skype. I was growing more concerned but upon reading the journal he posted on FA in December http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/6309942/ I decided to allow more time for him to get back in touch with me, especially as I was busy with the holidays and work. However into the new year I grew suspicious and started emailing Swizzle, first for clarification and then later demanding a refund as I grew fed up with being ignored. I still have yet to hear anything from Swizzlestix.

EDIT 1: Swizzlestix contacted me on the 9th of January to discuss the general state of affairs and express his shame with how things stood and his desire to make things right. He will hopefully also be contacting others too and this can be resolved in a positive manner for all parties. However it will be his actions (namely fulfilling his obligations to his commissioners) from here that will be the proof to these claims.

This is the fourth beware I've heard about Swizzlestix, and quite frankly, he's starting to take a Pirate-Cashoo route for just ignoring his paying clients.

Seconding the whole Pirate-Cashoo bit- hopefully you guys actually do see your refunds though. That's quite a bit of money that he's taken and is now ignoring his clients over.

Dang! He got people peeved off. I was thinking my post was premature but seeing three more, nearly back to back like this, rebutted my second guessing.

This is incredibly personal, and contains his real name. And thus this will be screened.
