Artist Beware: RachVerity

WHO: RachVerity

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/rachverity/

WHAT: Digital artwork, NSFW couples YCH commission http://www.furaffinity.net/view/18357167/

WHEN: November 27th 2015 to present

PROOF: Agreement of commission http://sta.sh/01ywsnvn5iog . Proof of payment http://sta.sh/01fvnh2pzrsn . No refund http://sta.sh/0w2gzvs9u9z . Currently blocked http://sta.sh/0wp4mq7b198 .

EXPLAIN: After commissioning the artist and all 4 ych slots were filled artist continued other ych commission projects. After a month the artist started other projects, to my knowledge only one slot of the original commission was completed (NSFW) http://www.furaffinity.net/view/18527960/ . Most conversations were in shouts posted to the artists page which they have deleted. The artist has only given vague details as to my commissions completion (http://sta.sh/013gemox3x1i) until I requested the commission stopped. By that time it was passed PayPals 180 days for a dispute and the artist refused a full refund. A claim has been filed against the artist with PayPal while the artist has been arrogant through this process http://sta.sh/01pqqajdt8r9 . This artist is deliberately scamming commissioners by delaying until the customer can't file for a refund.

Why am I not surprised?

At this point, I'm starting have a bad feeling that she's going to be the new Kannos, as this is the 6th beware I've read so far.

"Yes, I do give full refunds but only if it's for something else other then my working pace. "

This line from her ToS is really shady. So she doesn't give full refunds if she's taking forever?

Also she can't block clients and not refund them. If she doesn't want to work with you that's fine, but she can't steal your money.

Super shady, and I say this as a slow artist :/ You don't get to take forever on a piece and then just never give someone their money because oh, it might get done one day.

At least keep your queue/trello regularly updated and linked somewhere visible, so folks can go check on their own.

Not legally enforceable either. No real case law on furry commissions but for similar custom digital work would put the reasonable limit at 60 days.

Dear GOD HER AGAIN. I'm so sorry you're going through this.

Edited to add that she had been whining on her tumblr recently about people complaining about her being a "slow artist" because they "don't read the TOS".

Does she not know that blocking peoples doesn't mean she gets to keep the money?
Because she didn't deliver what the commissioner asked for so she can't say it's over her being a slow artist,it's more over her not giving the buyer what they paid for.

Just less than a year since her last beware too. It's depressing to know she still hasn't changed a bit in the past year, but I guess helpful to be told.

That last screencap was just especially horrendous, sorry you had to go through this OP! I hope something comes of that paypal claim.

Yes, i do as well hope they get all of their money back from the claim. That last screenshot honestly really, REALLY turns me off. Just takes your money and runs.

Ooof, that's no good. Hope you get your money back. I must admit the only thing I know about Rach is from these bewares.

Oh gosh the "If you use my name in a negative way I will also report you on fa" not only does someone talking negatively about someone not really breaking the rules(Minus bullying people and such) but the fact she had no real reason to block you in the first place (pointing out she had an A_B page isn't breaking the rules of A_B specially if it was in PMs) makes it sound like she is pulling a renee. Trying to hide any bit of her wrong doing instead of actually owning up to it and making things right.

From her very first beware here, her attitude seems to be "I deserve to be given money because I'm great and you should be grateful for the chance to give it to me, maybe at some point I'll do some art for you if I feel like it but you're shit out of luck if I don't." And that attitude has not changed in the slightest - her MO seems to be to take as many commissions as possible, do some of them then stall on the others until they're outside the Paypal dispute window and refuse to refund. Definitely an artist to avoid.

Wow that last note just wow. That :3 emote was not necessary. And she can't really report you to FA considering she made herself into a negative light in the first place. And that's not going to look good on her if she tries that considering her history.

Its disappointing to see shes still at it, and seemingly getting worse.

I hope they find out her true intention before they lose out a charge-back

Again? Aww man. Years back she was my 'go to' artist, because I love the art. She always delivered on time back then, as well. but then.. well, let's just say one of the past ABs was from me. I was always hoping it was just a phase and she got better again, but she seems to get worse and worse
