Beware Of Shadow-woofie aka Sharey

I commissioned a Fursuit from him over a year ago.

After several months of no progress and his sudden gain in 20 commissions of himself, I messaged him asking about it's progress.
I got the reply "I'm not working on it because of your attitude, you don't deserve it."
Demanding a refund he replied "I'm not refunding you either, deal with it."

He still refuses to refund me, and has blocked all communications with me on FA.

(I'm not sure I did this right, my first time warning people.)

My Message:
His Response:

Materials that were shown were leftovers from a previous suit project, he has deleted the photo.
(abuse stated being that I had long before this event on my msn status stated I didn't care for "cuntboys" all that much and he took it out of proportion during the dispute)

Paypal receipt (my last name and prices blacked out at request of my husband)

I'm deathly curious, do you think you could provide a screencap of that reply? I mean... seriously? That's pretty tacky, if not all out illegal. If I could deny service based on attitude at my job I'd never be paid (commission-based)!

Edit: And I'm assuming Shadow-woofie is the party in question's FA name?

That is downright just... ugh! I also concur that you should show some screencaps, and if everything proves to be true you should threaten legal action. Unfortunately you can't do a paypal dispute since it's been so long, but perhaps you can find out their personal info somehow? Or you may still have the person's paypal info if that's how you paid?

Yes, not saying I don't believe you but proof is always welcome (how did you pay / receipts with personal info blacked out / screencaps of emails)
Aug. 7th, 2010 04:57 pm (UTC)
Yeah i agree with the above i want to see a screencap as well.
Aug. 7th, 2010 04:58 pm (UTC)
Digging up the notes for the screencap. (it's been so long xD)

Shadow-woofie and Sharey are both his FA names

sounds like stuff Jesskitt would say...oh, wait...she does say things like that!
hope you get a resolution fast...

Wow. Yeah I'm definitely curious to see what the correspondence between you two was.

Whether or not he likes your attitude, he still needs to either give you the suit or send you a refund. What a douche canoe.

Name calling is frowned upon in A_B. Please refrain from it.

let dragoneer lay down a hammer.

Was gonna say - didn't we have a case pretty much identical to this one but for a plushie instead of a suit not so long ago, and Dragoneer did indeed get involved?

I believe that girl got her refund, too.
Aug. 7th, 2010 05:40 pm (UTC)
That is so not cool. I'm sorry for your ordeal, hope it wasn't too much money. >_<

More details would be nice... the exact date you paid, the correspondence you two had, and a link to who this person is, because I've never heard of them.

As others have said, evidence would be nice, also I suggest complaining to FA with evidence of your claims, since they have suspended people in the past for not delivering the goods or the refund.

The first one is his response, second one is my message o3o I'm tired

After reading the messages and seeing the receipt, things do not appear to be as clear as you have claimed it to be in your post. According to your receipt it hasn't been a year yet, granted it's only 2 months shy, but even so. And have they given you any progress images in this time?

There is the other huge matter regarding those two emails. It appears that you have talked with this person extensively before, and previous interactions have not been good. More importantly, why did you block them? Doing so seems highly counter productive and causes problems like the one I'm seeing here. It's not good that they've left you hanging, but from what I can see so far and even in your own email, your conduct in the matter has appeared to be just as childish.

I had blocked him due to many vulgar and sexist comments he had left on my page after I refused to pay him more.
It was childish, I guess, but he had my email, so he could've contacted me there if he did (which he didn't) have progress pictures.

He "was" an old friend when I had commissioned him, until he made a rude comment about my husband.

Fursuits cost a lot of money, as I'm sure you are aware. But showing me mere scraps, saying they were "bought" and I couldn't be refunded, how would you react?
