Beeejaay; still unresolved

So, this commission has been a mess and unfortunately is still going unresolved:

My first post can be found here

So as a slight recap, at AC '09 I commissioned a badge from Beeejaay, both because I liked her work and because she was seeing a friend of my boyfriend so I wanted to support a friend.  So I left AC without my badge and wasn't too worried because of our acquaintances.  But unfortunately there were some falling outs and after some good communication through notes they soon began to go unread.  That's when I come here the first time and found she had a new FurAffinity account.

These are the notes between us since then, mine are underlined, hers are in bold and any additional comments from me will be in italics:

Hello,
I was tipped off that this is the new account of the user Beeejaay. I commissioned a badge from you at Anthrocon 2009 and still have not received anything for my payment.
I would like either a refund of my $20 or my badge.
This is my character sheet:

And this is my paypal:

Thank you.

Here's a pretty crappy webcam update of your badge. All I need to do is add your name and laminate it. :3 The colors are a lot more vibrant in person and there is shading in the white but you can't really see it.

Hope everything is right and okay.

(I was very happy at this point and absolutely loved how my badge looked!  I thought that at this point I would be able to wrap up this mess shortly and get my badge mailed, but sadly things would not go so smoothly)

Yes, I do need your address :3 It will be mailed out either tomorrow or Friday after I get off work. I'm glad you like it!



(This is the part where there is a slight mixup on my part, I had recently moved and when I send my address on June 16th, 2010 I type my zipcode wrong.  So some time passes and I send another note:)

Hey!
Just wondering if my badge was mailed out yet as I haven't received it yet.
Thanks!


(It was after this note was sent that I double check the previous note with my address in it because I am wondering if it is taking so long because I may have messed things up.  So I discover that I indeed did and correct the mistake hoping I wasn't too late.)

oh crap...

oh man, I'm really sorry. It looks like I've made a mistake this time.
Seems I mistyped the zip code in my last note to you.
Not sure if anything can be done at this point. And I'm really sorry,
it should have been:

XD No that's alright. It's all good to go, been sitting on my desk. Brother came home for the weekend so I was just going to put it out in my work mailbox on Monday, we get confirmation on everything.
I'll just cross out the zip and rewrite it. :] So you should have it soon.

Have a good 4th tomorrow!

oh gosh, thank goodness. I would have felt terrible after all this trouble and making that one mistake.
Take care and you have a good 4th as well!!



(So, after that small fiasco I decide to leave her alone for a bit since I felt dumb for making that mistake.  So time went on and it kinda went to the back of my mind as I had other things to deal with, but recently I was wondering about my badge and sent another note)

Hey,
Just checking in to see if there is any update on my badge being mailed.
Again my address is:

Thanks.




This brings us to today, that note still sites unread.  (yes my address is completely right that time :P).
  Not sure what to do at this point, I'm just hoping to get her attention or someone else who can help like last time I posted here.

I also know that she still owes three of my friends some items from AC '09, My friend Seon and Kat are expecting badges, and my friend Mintz gave her a sketchbook to work in and she still has it.  I really wish things could have gone better with this and I made my mistakes.  At this point I really just want my friends to be compensated and to warn others.

Still waiting on mine as well. I've given up. 15$ out the window. I honestly don't think I will ever commission a badge at a con again, unless it's from a friend who is local.

And people wonder why I really don't buy art all that often.
I am more for functional work myself.

All this is very bad business practice and quite unprofessional.

Yeah, I've been having similar problems with BJ. She never finished her half of an art trade from back in 2007, although she made contact with me during Sept. 2009 saying she'd finish it.
I voiced my concern about this by posting a comment/reply to her on her reply to your last post here, but never got a reply back from her.

Seems like she's flown the coop.
