Lost Contact Draconemignis of FA

EDIT: after a year of waiting and no contact do you think its appropriate to create a beware on this artist as well?



Original Post:

This is a lost contact of Dragondoodles or Draconemignis of Furaffinity. I commissioned them back in 2015 at BLFC (biggest little fur con) for a badge, and have been promised multiple times of its completion, and have apparently been dropped out of contact.

They have deactivated FA, and the email provided for contact bounces now so I'm assuming thats been disabled. Did they do a name change? Does ANYONE have contact as this was a 40 dollar badge and Id love to fund another honest artist with that money rather than just be out the cash. I've asked for refunds over email, notes on FA (pre-disable), and shouts. Have yet to be contacted and since it was an in person cash transaction (I have a physical receipt however) I cant file a dispute.

Any suggestions? help please...


Update 11/23/2016: I reached out to the "Dragondoodles" Facebook page via facebook chat not expecting anything since the page seems abandoned. However; the message has been seen. No response though. Ive sent the message below:

And noticed they were not responding. So I left this as a message, hopefully they get in contact with me. Blocked out my email since its not needed here in this forum.

"I see this message has been seen, if you could email me at xxxxxxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com again id like to discuss my refund for my badge please."

Edit to update 11/23/2016: My second message has been seen on facebook but not responded to. I have left them a message stating they have 24 hours from a specific time to respond or a full beware will be posted.

Feeling like I wont be seeing my art or my money, but I'd like to just warn others of this potential scam.

I did some snooping, and came across a facebook page and a weebly account:

https://www.facebook.com/mrdragonsdoodles
http://dragondengoods.weebly.com/

They look pretty inactive, but maybe that'll help you get in contact with him. ON the facebook account, it does say his full name so you might be able to track him down through there.

ETA: Okay he shows up on FB after searching his name. I dunno if I'm allowed to link it tho.

Well considering you haven't had any replies back from the artist after sending them notes after a year. Then it's appropriate to make an AB.

I know them from Arizona Furcon, they took a lot of money and ran from that convention too, then shut their accounts down.

Howdy! Since we can't find a way to prove that these accounts are linked to the same artist, this comment will be screened. If you can provide proof that they are the same person, I welcome you to PM me or another mod.

You and the moderators can still view your screened comment, so please don't delete it. Thanks!

RE: Re: mod comment
Honestly at this point I've tried. If you guys dont wanna allow the posts then fine. I can say without doubt they are all the same person. I'm tired of seeing him fuck people over. So if you wanna post em so they people he fucked over can find him awesome. If not then I really don't give a flying fuck. I've don't my good deed I tried to right some of the wrongs I've done when I helped him remove his tracks. Good luck linking the two I did a thorough job making sure none of his old commissioners would be able to find him. There's no art linking the two. At this point I'm contacting the other users directly min tired of dealing with this crap it's more effort than it's worth really

Re: Re: mod comment
Unfortunately, your word isn't solid proof and that's really all there is to it. I would appreciate you following our rules that have been explained to you multiple times.

If you do come up with any solid, undeniable proof, please do PM one of us to share it! Otherwise, I am freezing this thread and that will be the end of it. Do not continue this discussion inside the community.
