(NOTE: I've been keeping the main post updated as things progress and new posts are made)
IMS finally responded to me, after I left a link to my original a_b post on her page. In a testament to her usual business practice, she swiftly removed the shouts (which are posted in the OP now) from displeased customers from her page.

This is the comment she left on my page.

This was my response left on her page.

This is the note I received with my reply.



Here's the newest journal posted about this, I assume if I leave a comment on it defending myself she'll block me, so I'll just cap it and post it here. (More 'caps seems like better than not having them)

As it stands she's threatened to block me and refuse to ship my items. Pretty much all I can do now is keep updating the situation here to inform and hopefully encourage other would-be commissioners to avoid her at all costs.

...wow. I don't even know what to say. What a horrifying attitude presented in that journal, AND to you...! I'd be baffled if they stayed in business at all after that, but I've certainly been surprised before :/

The other two posts aren't tagged, but the second one is still on the first page of the community, and links to the original post.

... I can't believe how unprofessional this chick is.

Good grief,

What is it with so-called business people who can't tell the difference between being rude and a client asking for an update, something, anything to prove that they've not been scammed?

I felt bad at first for not asking sooner about progress before the deadline, but now I realize it probably just would have made this all happen sooner, rather than get me progress. :/

Have you pointed out to her that it's totally and unarguably illegal to withhold something owed because she doesn't like your attitude? Even if you were being as rude as she claims (which I don't at all think you were) it wouldn't give her the right to behave like this.

How would I pursue that? Would the local police help, I'm unsure.

God, and I almost did business with her D8 Like, very almost. I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this, she seems like a consummate diva. I guess just keep thorough records, and if push comes to shove, YOU post a journal - she can't censor that. Reputation spreads.

I intend to post something to FA about this once my charity auction is complete. I don't want to push the auction post off my front page.

Wow, what a horribly immature passive aggressive response! She's keeping your money and product because she doesn't like you? Are we back in first grade?

Taking money for a product and not delivering is fraud. And I hope someone tells her this, she's acting like a total child.

Unfortunately it would cost quite a bit of the sum just to file the suit, and then there's no guarantee she could even pay if the judge favored my side of the case. :/

Man I am loosing so much faith in the good nature of so many artists lately. What on earth is in the water they all drink lately that made them loose all aspects of professionalism. X_c

:C Her "asshole rule" is incredibly unprofessional, and I am incredibly displeased with the profanity that she vaguely directs at her customers.

the no refunds rule is.. WOW.. way to get them stuck for them forever..
and honestly, a lot of artists nowadays claim that some user getting sick of not getting any product they paid for and asking for updates = rude

I did mention this to the mods, but they said unless she does this to more people/more people step forward about it, there's not much they can do. They are watching her though.

SRSLY.

I love professional artists who respect the fact that people are paying for their physical results - not their skills, not their name, not their internet fame. For RESULTS...

This lack of professionalism is really sort of sick.

Heh. I was going to leave a comment about how having a "no refunds ever" policy is a very bad idea... but the journal is gone already. Shocking. :P

I noticed that as well. But in vein, as it's capped and in this entry.
