UPDATE: Got my money back with the help of Paypal and no word from Zim. Case-closed. I still HEAVILY advise against doing ANY business with Zim

Seven weeks ago this Tuesday, I bid on and won an unfinished Arcanine fursuit head (One that I would finish myself. The only work to be done on her part was dropping it in the mail) from the user Spacemutt/Zim-Gekko. I paid the evening that I won the auction (March 23rd)and was assured by Zim that my item would be shipped the next day....that was yet again almost SEVEN WEEKS AGO. I have yet to see ANY sign that my item has even come close to the post office. She'd promise by the end of the week that it would go out, and it wouldn't. Over and over and over... I filed a dispute with Paypal, and she yet again assured me that my item would go out, which it never did. At the six week mark (This last Tuesday), I escalated my dispute to a claim, left very negative feedback on Furbuy, and sent a VERY strong-worded email stating that I was pretty much done dealing with her flakiness and that I want my money back (If I don't have proof of shipping by this coming Tuesday). Like so many emails before it, I have not gotten a response from her. I am sick and tired of being yanked around and given false promises. If anyone here has regular contact with Zim/Space, please show her this post and urge her to speak to me. I'm done with being ignored.

Doesn't Furbuy deal with scamming artists or commissioners?

Seriously, I read this community every so often and the site keeps popping up. :(

I received an email from the Furbuy admins (Not sure if it was Jurann or not) reminding em to leave feedback or to email them back about any issues. When I did, they pretty much said that they had tried talking to her before about a separate issue, and she exploded at them. The gist of the email was pretty much that I am on my own Dx

There's only so much we can do. When sellers have a far larger positive track record than their negative track record, all we can do is warn people to beware of folks with negative feedback on their accounts, and encourage people to check into sellers' feedback scores and messages before choosing to do business with them. When users become enough of an issue, we suspend their accounts. If this user were a "scam artist" we'd have removed their access ages ago, but they actually have a mostly positive track record on the site.

I think they may be having an internet issue. Don't know for sure though.

Not a valid excuse.

If it's sudden and causes a slight delay because you can't get the shipping address or something, fine. But that's obviously not the case here.

I'm pretty sure they were on FA recently, as a couple folks left them shouts thanking them for watches. It's pretty obvious that I'm just being ignored for some reason. Maybe they think I'm being unreasonable for actually wanting what I paid for or my money back. Shame on me for wanting something I paid for almost nine weeks ago... nine weeks...that's a whole litter of puppies D:<

Good on you for filing a claim with Paypal, hopefully it gets your money back!

They did email me right after my first post. They said that my package would go out by the end of the week.... four weeks ago. Actually, one of the major reasons why I decided to post here again was in hopes of getting in email conact with her (as she mainly just ignores my emails). Unfortunetly, I have not heard from her yet regarding this post. :/
