Advice needed

Edit:  I sent mechasheep a note telling her that if I wasn't shown proof that my suit was being done Id file a chargeback claim with my bank. She responded to my ignored note from last night and said that she would accept a deadline and possibly even have it done a week before then. So I told her that i wanted it a month from today (its very possible to have a suit done in a month or less, Shadowsani had mine done in about 3 weeks with amazing quality) and that I wanted frequent photographic updates. She read it but didnt respond to this last note.


This note in question was the one I sent last night asking if I could request a deadline (which was initially ignored) she responded today after I told her Id be taking legal action if something wasnt done.



Hello,
I was hoping i wouldnt have to post to this but i really need some advice on what to do. In october i commissioned mechasheep for a fullsuit at the price of $600. She seemed eager to keep me updated and said that i needed to send in a DTD and shed start right away. I sent it off with delivery confirmation, but since shes located in canada it didnt update anymore once out of the country. I contacted her in late november asking if she had received it and she never replied, in fact all my attempts to ask her polite questions were repeatedly ignored (they still are) and she is active on FA, because she faves stuff every day and my notes show that they are read.

I got in contact with another person who commissioned a suit from her and they asked for WIP pictures, on it which they never received, on their suit which was allegidly pretty much done. they obviously are kinda at loss because she keeps ignoring them too.

I also noticed that other people who commissioned her for art quite some time ago are also waiting for replies that never come, if you look at her journals and whatnot.

So what should i do? Should i open a paypal dispute or is it too late? Or is there another means to go about this?

Thank you for your help,
Neonr0se

You can only open a Paypal dispute within 45 days of the initial payment.

It's too late for paypal dispute, but if you used a card to pay through paypal you still might be able to contact them and file a chargeback. (if you paid through a bank you could try contacting them too)
And yes if she is ignoring you for over a month with no sign work was even started I think you should do this. Send her a note and let her know while you are making inquiries on the process.

Yeah I paid with a wells fargo credit card via paypal. So I just go to my bank and ask them? (Sorry to sound ignorant, I've never done this before :/)

That's sad to hear. I currently have a deal with her too. (As it stands I probably wont go through with it either..) It seems hard to get in contact with her, it took me several times to just find out if she got my DTH too.. I've also only payed her $30 for some eye materials.. All I can say is just keep harassing her via note, shout, and her journals.

Seems she owes people art too and is only doing things she wants to. I guess one should expect that from someone so young. :\

I hope it gets resolved.

Yeah its really sad :( she has a lot of potential but I honestly would advise against giving her more money :/

And yeah I've been trying to maintain constant communication but to no avail :( I'm a really patient commissioner but when a large sum of money is paid with nothing to prove in 4 months it gets me worried

I hope she can deliver, it would give me more hope in our deal. But it's sad that you'd have to come to this to get a response at all. :C

I really hope so too :/ I really hate being this type of commissioner, because i really am a patient person i swear. Appearently she apologized to the other person who commissioned a suit from her thats almost finished and told her that it would be done it 3 days and she would even give pictures. So hopefully she actually goes through with that deadline she set for herself but well see :/

Well this is sad. I've commissioned her to make my fursona fursuit partial. I've got a total of $400 into it. Let me know what happens. =/

Yeah it is :( I will, I think I'm gonna ask her today to see if there's been any progress on it because when I contacted her and told her what would happen if I didn't see proof I gave her a month from the 22nd of Jan to have it completed

I really hope you can get this solved and fixed as soon as possible, that's just not right. I'm on the same boat right now as well with a drawn commission.

This may be a bit late. But last October I commissioned her a Digital fullbody when she was offering them really cheap. I paid up front and still waiting for my picture, I've sent notes/comments that have also been ignored, I noticed a few people have the same problem. I want to ask for a refund but afraid I may never get the money back from her, since I know some people have been waiting a long time to get money returned to them.

If there's any advise anyone can give, that would be great.
Thanks
