Lost Contact - Chioro

I commissioned Chioro ( https://www.furaffinity.net/user/chioro/ ) on February 20th of this year. Just recently I discovered that they have disabled their Fur Affinity account, which is where I had commissioned them. I have attempted to contact them via the PayPal e-mail they provided me when I paid, as well as on their Weasyl, SoFurry, DeviantArt and Tumblr accounts. They have not been active on most of these sites for months, or sometimes years, but I had thought it prudent to try. I'm not looking for a reason why they shut down their account. That's their business. I just want them to get into contact with me, and to get either the art I paid for or a refund. If anyone knows where they may be reached, that would be greatly appreciated.

Hey heads up. When I went to their picarto to find more links it said private stream. I don't know if that means she's currently streaming or if she has her whole page set to private.

Thanks! I actually found that by searching around Twitter, but I wasn't sure if that was them or not. I should have thought to check Facebook as well. Again, thanks for all your help!

That's a good question. I've only ever sat in on public streams, myself, so I couldn't tell you. But it might be worth taking a peek at her page there, just in case there's contact info or something. Thanks for the info!

Private streams still show the steaming notification regardless, if that helps.

I don't know if these need a resolution like actual bewares, but Chioro has gotten back in touch with me and thanks to everyone for their help!

Chioro
I will add this here, because I had a problem with Chioro as well.

Beginning December 2016, I commissioned Chioro to do a drawing for me. she was kind and responsive, worked with me on forming the idea of what to draw and everything. She then added me to her personal Discord server, which she mainly used for communication, and linked me to her Commission que.

Fast forward two months, beginning of February 2017. Checking the que she had linked to me I saw, that my drawing had not been worked on, and that other commissions which came in after mine were being worked on. I wasn't the only commission in the list with no progrss though, so I approached her and asked her about the status of my commission. She blocked all contact, did not reply in personal messages or in public, and refused to talk to me. So I posted in public that I am giving her time till the end of may (three and a half months) to either finish my commission, or send me a refund. She immediately replied that she would do so, and then deleted the messages from the chat.

Over the course of the following months, there was little to no communication. At first she said that she did not know my E-Mail anymore and could not send me the money back again, so I gave her my E-Mail adress again. Later on she said that she had the money and would send it soon. A little later, I still didn't have the money, so I asked her if there were problems with the transaction or such. A little later I noticed that she had kicked me out of her Discord channel.

Today, as of when I am writing this message, is the 31st of May, 2017. The last day for the deadline I gave her. Around early afternoon I noticed, that I still neither had the drawing, nor the money, so I wrote her that I am giving her till the end of the day to give me my refund, else I would contact the Paypal customer support and my lawyer to get my money back. A little later she sent me the money and threatened to "report" me if I ever threaten her again, and then told me to never talk to her again.

Right now, I have the money back again, but it was sad that it took so long for something like this, and that it all ended like this.
