FINAL EDIT: So after posting the last update, a few things have happened. My claim was never responded to, however the note I sent to them a week earlier warning of the chargeback was (see their response here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xvaik3o7szvka0r/Inkeyu%20Response.png?dl=0 ) I was hoping that true to their word, they would refund me there and then, so gave them my email and ignored the fact I found them to be rude (whilst I appreciate being busy, if you run commissions through a site you have an obligation to at least inform them once in a while on where they stand). They never got back in contact nor did they refund me. As of today (29th March 2017) Paypal have ruled in my favour as they never got in contact with Paypal, proof of the dispute resolution is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/gdzagfydino29w1/Screenshot_2017-03-29_at_18.51.04.png?dl=0

I will now be blocking the seller on FA, and consider the matter resolved.

Edit: I've removed the IG account, and as of yet, there is no response to my chargeback threat. I also can not find any more of my notes asking them for updates (as I regularly clean my mailboxes, if I find any or receive a reply or issue the chargeback, I will keep you updated.) I've also included evidence that my chargeback has not been opened, as well as that my Feb 6th note was read.

Edit 2: They never responded to the chargeback note (or opened it) so have included evidence of the paypal claim (I escalated straight to them), they have until the 27th to respond to paypal, as of today (21st of March) there is still no conversation between them and the seller as it still says "awaiting response" on the claim.

First off, forgive me if this is incorrect in any way, I'm new here and am incredibly anxious about posting and didn't really want for it to get this way but I feel I've been patient enough after 4 months of minimal contact and I have now issued a warning about a chargeback. Please note I wouldn't have been this patient if it wasn't for the fact this person seemed to be in dire need when I commissioned them.

WHEN: December 2nd 2016 (given her 48hr warning of a chargeback March 15th 2017)

EXPLAIN: I came across this individual in an FALAH (FA Lend a Hand) ad saying she was in a dire situation and needed funds, so was initially going to do a half and half trade of cash and writing for one of these pendants. I got paid around then, so instead decided to pay them the full asking price of $25 after some discussion (see "initial discussion" above) since I figured they'd appreciate it more. They asked for payment, which I sent on December 2nd 2016 (see "proof of purchase").

They were initially chatty (see links under "discussing details") and in good contact for a fair few weeks. Around six weeks in, I sent them a polite message to ask for progress, which was responded to by them saying they were busy as their situation was even more dire (I could only find their journal asking for help, and will link this if needed). I did some boosting online in an attempt to help them on my Twitter in the hope they would get to my piece faster, and left them be for another couple of weeks.

I then attempted to contact them again (and several times since, like in the Feb 6th screenshot "one of several attempts to get in touch") and noticed that my notes were getting ignored (see "evidence read"). I would contact approximately once a fortnight, and every time the note was opened but never replied to. By this time I was beginning to feel put out, so decided to contact the customer ahead of me in the queue. They explained that Inkeyu worked in the same facility as them, and was under a lot of work pressure, but was going to tell them to respond to me and keep me in the loop (can link this if needed). This was around the end of February and I've still had no contact.

I feel crap for doing it, but I'm finally at a point where I am a little suspicious and a little bit dejected. I've issued a 48hr warning before I file a chargeback (see "chargeback") which has been currently unread (see "chargeback unread"). I feel like I've tried to help someone in need and it's backfired on me, and now I fear I'm taking money from the mouth of someone who really needs it even though I don't want to lose that money myself. Chargeback warning issued on March 15th at 20.08GMT and I will update as and when needed.

Minor update
The note remained unread, I've now escalated this to PayPal who have given Inkeyu until 27th March to respond to them.

Mod here from FALAH! Please make sure to message us such situations as well so we can block any people abusing our group's help!

We will be blocking Inkeyu from our group.
Please do not feel bad! Inkeyu had plenty of time to get your commission done.

In order to make up for this you may message me on my personal account http://www.furaffinity.net/user/chaossal/ and I can draw you a chibi of your character in a bottle pendant (as I can not make a real one but hopefully this can make you feel a little bit better about the situation!) We apologist that you had such a situation from helping someone we have have shared.

Sincerest Apologies
As I can not reach you any other way, please accept my sincerest apology. I don't think that writing everything out here will do anything, nor do I expect anything about this to change, however I do hope to clarify some things about my situation and why this all happened. If you are so inclined, please read my explanation here: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/8341594/
Or email me at inkeyu@gmail.com
Thank you. And again, I sincerely apologize.
If you like, I will still do the pendant for you, free of charge, once I am in a place that has a working oven I can use to comlete it.
