Beware: mechasheep

 So after trying to ask mechasheep for an update 2 weeks after the initial problem she never responded yet read my note. Unfortunately that was 9 days ago and I'm still waiting on said update/response from her. I called my bank (Wells Fargo) monday to issue a chargeback and then paypal to let them know of the situation. I am kind of worried as I've never done a chargeback before how it exactly works and if they'll be able to get my money back for sure since I paid Sep. 28th, 2010 :/.

Any information or further advice is greatly appreciated!

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.

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,

oh I remember this.

Glad you issued the chargeback, it was definitely a smart thing to do. Hopefully she learns through the chargeback fees such behavior is unacceptable.

So do you think the chargeback will work even though I paid 5 months ago?
I have all the financial proof and everything

Has the note been marked as read?? Just curious.
This sucks, I was hoping she wouldn't do this.. very disappointing...
I'll harass her for a refund of my money too, or the mats of what she bought. Weather your busy or not, it's kinda irresponsible.. :\
Feb. 10th, 2011 04:18 am (UTC)
Yeah its been marked as read
Exactly! I hope you're able to get a refund, and I honestly hope I will be able to as well :(
Feb. 10th, 2011 04:20 am (UTC)
I just sent her a note basically saying "I've seen you on AB, you can prove to me and your customers that you've been doing something so I can trust you, or refund me/mail me the materials for the eyes"

If she doesn't refund or send the mats, expect a post from me too. :P

Yeah I really don't understand why someone can't type up a reply and send it, it takes like 10 seconds :/

My mom called PayPal and they put a dispute on the money I sent her. They said it can take as long as 60 days to get it resolved, but that's cool with me. $400 is a lot of money. =x
Feb. 10th, 2011 08:10 pm (UTC)
You were able to make a dispute?
I paid sep.28th so when I called all they said they could do it make notes on the account and send an email. Should I call them again?
Feb. 10th, 2011 11:47 pm (UTC)
I paid in November. I would call them again. =/

Curious if there is any update about this. Has she responded??
At this point I'm getting a refund from her too because of her lack of 'progress'..
Feb. 21st, 2011 04:53 am (UTC)
Yeah She did, she said apologized for her not being able to get the suit done and that i am frustrated. She also said that because of her downhill spiral that she doesnt know when shed be able to get the suit done and that to amend things to send the supplies she got
The bad thing is, is that I asked my bank for a chargeback and they said they couldnt do anything :(
So idk what to do now
Feb. 21st, 2011 04:56 am (UTC)
FFF that sucks.. well at least your getting the mats, and that's a good chunch of your $$$. :C

Weather she refunds me or not I'm gonna add a post here about her.. if she's having SUCH a problem she should fucking SAY SO and not disappear and blatantly ignore notes.....

Make sure she sends a tracking number or something w/ your stuff, you don't want that getting lost, and you definitely want PROOF that she sent you something...
