Update with Starfinder/Christina Penescu

I wanted to give a quick update regarding the issue I had with Starfinder/Astray/Kannos/Christina Penescu, previously posted two months ago here.

I updated that post saying that she had contacted me shortly after posting here, informing me that she'll send it out at the end of that week. This would have been the first or second week of December, latest. I haven't received it, so I sent her an e-mail asking about the matter (as instructed on her FA page, under the username Astray) two weeks ago, and then a note on FA five days ago. She hasn't opened by note and all her galleries on FA or DA haven't been touched. However, she's updated her Facebook page since, the latest update being January 26th. So, she has internet access.

I just wanted to say that the issue has not been resolved, and I doubt it'll ever be.

And please, since it was a problem last time, nobody contact her or her employers about the matter. I'm posting this here so that the community and others know to stay away from her (as if there wasn't ample reason already), not to make her life difficult. She'll do that herself.

Beware: Commissioner - SunTattooWolf / NightTattooWolf

Status Update: SunTattooWolf has issued an apology and sent in the rest of the payment.  She also asked for this entry to be removed, but I informed her that the community policy here disallows it.  I will, however, now mark this case as "Resolved".  Thanks to everyone for reading and helping.

Commissioner: SunTattooWolf (also known as NightTattooWolf)

History:
-On October 4th, 2010, user SunTattooWolf signed up for an Erotic Collage Commission from me (priced at $200). She provided relevent reference materials the following day, then there was a delay in communication when I discussed the payment options with her.
-On October 14th, 2010, she finally replied to me and agreed to the terms of service. She said she would send in a $50 deposit, then pay the rest in three $50 installments. I said okay, and then there was another long delay in communications.
Screenshot detailing the transaction.

-On November 5th, 2010, SunTattooWolf finally sent in the $50 deposit (I was already considering dropping her commission at that point, since communication was so poor. But I decided to give her a chance)

-On November 13th, 2010, her piece was completed and a lower-resolution, water-marked version was uploaded to FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/4787270/ SunTattooWolf confirmed via shouts that she saw the picture, and said she would pay off the remainder of the commission soon.
-On December 26th, 2010, SunTattoowolf attempted to get a bunch of buddies together to group bid on a $600 auction from Kaji and Nimrais on Furbid, while still oweing $150 to me and claiming that she doesn't have money for payment. I promptly issued a warning to Kaji about this commissioner.
-Around the same time she attempted to bid on Kaji's auction, SunTattooWolf shouted on AlectorFencor's page, asking her if she will be attending FC because she wants to commission her. I issued the same warning to Alector about the trouble I am having with this commissioner.
-In early January, I shouted on SunTattooWolf's page, asking her about the status of the payment (I had been doing that every 2 to 3 weeks, since she doesn't actively keep in touch). SunTattooWolf promised that she would pay off the remainder of her balance on January 18th. No payment arrived.
-On January 20th, I issued another notice to her. She said "she would have the money soon" because she was getting refunded for another commission elsewhere. This was the last time I heard from her.
-On January 27th, I issued my last shout, stating that she must pay off her commission by April 12th. She has not replied to my shout, and since she has a journal dated January 24th that stated she had a neck injury of some kind, I assumed she has simply been away for medical treatment, and hasn't been checking FA... until...
-On January 29th, 2011, SunTattooWolf shouted on AlectorFencer's page, asking for her "commission prices" for the second time.

In addition to attempting to commission Kaji and AlectorFencer while oweing me money, SunTattooWolf has been commissioning several other artists throughout the whole period:
-On January 11th, 2011, Huskie666 uploaded a badge commission for SunTattooWolf http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5078285/
-On January 22nd, 2011, SunTattooWolf uploaded a commission she got from Azelyn http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5134514
-On January 22nd, 2011, SunTattooWolf signed up for a FULL COLOR illustration from Kacey http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/2041518/ - a warning has already been sent to Kacey to proceed with caution in dealing with said commissioner.
-On January 26th, 2011, Korrok uploaded a commission for SunTattooWolf http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5156360/ - and when I sent Korrok a note to warn her about this commissioner, I was told that she was already bidding on another of Korrok's auctions..
