Paiseley and refunds

So two years ago I commissioned Paiseley (http://www.furaffinity.net/user/paiseley) for several sketches to be paid upon completion. A year passed without seeing anything, and she posted asking for commissions or donations, and I reminded her about the commission and offered to pay if she would follow up with the art. $50 and a year later nothing to show for it. So I asked for a refund. Now four or five months later I haven't seen anything for my efforts except a lot of people posting shouts to her FA page saying that they too are owed refunds or massively late commissions.

Does anyone know what the heck is up with her? Has she vanished with other peoples' and my money? I mean it has been over two freaking -years- now since I commissioned her, and months and months since asking for a refund and now there's a flood of people in the same situation as me.

Edit: Her old LJ was purged and deleted, but someone just pointed me to her new LJ for contact purpose http://thatgirlmitch.livejournal.com/

Edit2: Twitter account under the same name http://twitter.com/thatgirlmitch , including tweets about buying a new car this past month. Clearly financial problems prevent giving refunds to multiple people...

Edit3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iba8dDpLyVc and she can't afford to give refunds, but she can buy tickets to see the Bosstones, their new album, and plane tickets to go fly to their show at the Boston House of Blues.

Edit4: I was given her contact info and called her tonight and left a voice mail about the commission. She texted me back saying she had no idea who I was or how I got her number and never to contact her again. I texted back with details and got a "Do Not Contact Me Again" as a reply. Trash.

I'm wondering myself, since I'm owed an icon. It wasn't expensive, but still. :\

So you paid out $50 after a year of no result upon the original agreement (payment on completion) and year two rolls around and still nothing (where you pre-paid to ensure completion?)?

I hate to say it, but I do believe you've been had. Which is unfortunate.

EDIT: Haven't you posted here about her before? Or was it someone else...

I believe it was someone else when Paisley was doing Badges/Artist Trading Card things.

They have been harvesting themselves a pretty bad rep. :(

BAAAAAAWWWW NO ONE WANTS TO COMMISSION ME!

Maybe if you didn't have such a shitty attitude, you would get commissioners. A novel idea, isn't it?

What a shame. Paiseley appears to have a really adorable style. Has she had a spotty reputation in the past?

Yes. She has p[osts about her on FD_2.

I was thinking the same thing. If they weren't so shitty with commissions and a blatant scam artist, I'd probably commission them. The style is adorable.

Wow...hearing that others have an issue with this person makes me feel a bit better. I tried many times to contact this artist as well, for several icons that i never saw.

I wonder what happened...if anything. I'll be watching this post for updates.

This is the thread btw, from teenycom: http://community.livejournal.com/teenycom/7767.html#cutid1

I don't think that I/my sister were the only ones never to get their icons from that one.

I commissioned her in January of this past year for a set of conbadges. I wasn't aware that she had any issues with completing commissions before that. I asked for a refund of the $65.00 purchase price, but haven't heard anything and kind of doubt that I will hear anything.

P.S.
She has a twitter under the same name as the LJ. Which includes regular tweets 'n stuff. -.-;

And tweets talking about how much they love their iphone, and from a concert. And tweeted about buying a new car this month. Clearly financial problems prevent her from giving refunds...

raethdragon needs a tampon, yeesh.

As for Paiseley, it's really a shame she's doing this-- her artwork has been nothing but fantastic. She was also posted here in furrydrama_2 recently. You need to join to see, and I think membership is open.

...I just wanted to mention too, that in that post, I was mentioning Havoc owing me something. She ended up finishing it in a matter of hours and it was MORE than perfect, so yeah.

I know Paiseley's gallery/LJ links to Havoc, but they're not the same person. Havoc's also been very nice to me this whole time. She seems very "real" and easy to talk to. No complaints.

Yeah, I said it in the Furry Drama comm, but working iwth her with my badge commission 2 years ago was a giant pain in the ass :/ Always personal problems, always. Well, she's still pulling the same crap now I guess. You'll never see that money again.

I can't tell if this is serious or if the OP is a friend of yours. If it's serious, please don't do that.

She's pretending you don't exist now? That's really crappy. I used to think she was a neat person once, but I guess I dodged a bullet when she decided I wasn't cool enough to be friends with.

Tsk.

Highly disappointing. I'm sorry you were scammed that way.

Well how much was it worth?

Maybe everyone should come together that she hasn't done the work for and uh .. jump on the legal train?

I second this.
Maybe these artist would learn not to screw with people if the commissioners took mass action. It'd be a lot cheaper than going one-on-one with her, too.
