Helmet

Beware: Inu-Jean

WHO: Inu-Jean, Inujean

WHERE: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/inu-jean/ http://www.livestream.com/inujean

WHAT: Unprofessional behavior/business practices.

WHEN: Commissioned him back in August/September 2012 for 3 digital and real media pieces. Received one quickly, one wasn't started at all and was refunded in April 2013, and one was started in February, then partially refunded at the end of April after I set a deadline for completion.

PROOF: Collapse )
EXPLAIN: I honestly didn't have much a problem until mid-April when he reopened for commisisons again without completing his owed work and commenced working on the newer stuff without responding to inquiries about progress.  Most especially galling was when he lied to me about not having been streaming, when he didn't even turn off Livestream's stream recording feature.  Arguably he still owes me twenty dollars for the second refund as I've received no work and paid eighty dollars instead of just the sixty, but since I am now blocked on his FA page and he doesn't respond to Skype messages, this is what it's come to.

While I agree he didn't specify a working order, I find his attitude and penchant for working with more recent clients after leaving others waiting for several months to be very off-putting, particularly when he wants payment up front.

As for why I waited this long, it wouldn't be the first time I got a refund in parts, and it was while trying to contact him that I found out I was blocked.

No, I'm not proud that I threatened to AB him the second time I mentioned a deadline. I was pissed, but no excuse on my end for losing my cool. I did wrong, and I know.

So, resubmitting, and if the FA link is broken again, I don't know what to do. I copy and pasted it right from the site.

Scam Artist: Shizimiru/Comico - false claims

WHO: An artist who until recently was frequenting Furaffinity under the username Comico. Recently Perma-banned from site. Other Alias and locations:
Skype: shizimiru
Furrafinity: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/comico/

WHERE: The offense took place mainly through PayPal, however Shizimiru's main form of contact and "business" was through FA.

WHAT: The art in question was a $400 dollar "mature" comic piece that was commissioned by me through a different artist (name of Hashire on FA) at Shizimiru's request. We were to "share" the piece with our characters, and Shizimiru promised to pay me 200 for her half of the work "when she had the money."

WHEN: Auction for said comic was posted approx. March 28. Winning bid was placed on the 29th by Shizi.
