Beware Isabella Price

http://www.furaffinity.net/user/isabellaprice/

UPDATE 2/21/11: Some of these photos are a tad blurry, so I'll upload better shots later, but you all can see what I'm talking about for now.

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5576284527216677682

Here in this photo I wanted to show the seam line. Its pretty clear is not balaclava, but some random material (looks like a t shirt) sewn together

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5576284528272206066

Just wanted to show the cut work she did for the eyes. The way the material is cut makes mt think tshirt but also if it were a balaclava, shouldn't it have eyes already?

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5576284529474124754

This is a bad pic. I'll upload another later, but this is one of the cheeks coming off. Just starting too.

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5576284533760040882

Here's the other cheek. Its well on its way to falling off.

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5576284535281993378

Sorry. this picture is kinda bad too. This is the back of the muzzle, where the wear's nose should be. If you can see, notice how it is flat which would prevent breathing.

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5576284778321040386

This ear is coming off a bit.


https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5576284786170632498

This ear is almost off completely.

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5576284787454582562

Upon inspection I realize this artist used very little glue on this head and it is coming off the material. In this shot you can
also see the fabric better. Looks like a tshirt

but this is ok, I'm just gonna rip it off the material and make this a foam base instead. So in reality all I really paid for was a bunch of foam pieces cause the foam isn't even staying on the "balaclava" material like its supposed to.


Again, bad service, poor with deadlines, horrid friend attack friend, and now poor craftsmanship.

Don't do business here. You may get more trouble than you wish for.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE 2/21/11: I received the head in the mail. I think I would've been more happy with it if I had just gotten it on time. Trying to stay calm and be less critical I was just wondering if balaclava, is that stretchy face mask type thing that goes over your head, cause what ever this is, it's not as described. Its looks like the artist took 2 pieces of an old tshirt and sewed it together and put foam on it. It wasn't even a stretchy tshirt so its hard to put it on.

After asking various friends to try it on, the one person who could get their head inside the base said it lays against their nose preventing her from breathing. She had to breathe through her mouth.  The head is, not up to par. It could have been better. Its kinda poorly constructed in the sense that it has very little glue holding it together. The ears are coming off somewhat and one of the cheeks is halfway off already.

Its definitely not worth $70 but at this point, I've lost so much time it will have to do. Luckily I can fix it myself, but I would have been better off building it myself or paying $30 extra to get a base from Avsun.

I suggest you really consider before buying or doing business with this artist. She can't keep a deadline and will try to justify it to you basically telling you you should accept it, she's not all that honest at times, and she has a rather off-putting friend who you do not want  to cross paths with.

She's a good person, just not a good business person and may need to look into other line of work.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE 2/20/11 I'm not sure how to deal with this? Is this right?
https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575940026012072258
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE 2/20/11: As promised I would like to commend Count Ramsley for getting the pictures I wanted to see.
I got a note from him on my FA showing me proof that Isabella did indeed send my head as of February 16th 2011
though it was one day before my due date I am happy that I shall (hopefully) be getting it.

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575925384026685986

I'd like to apologize to Isabella and Ramsley for my at times brash behavior. I'm mad, he's mad, everybody's mad and it just doesn't add up to anything good.  Its usually not like myself and I am happy with the way things seem to be turning out.

As promised I'd like to announce this issue as somewhat resolved and if I do not get my item it is a matter of the post office, not Isabella. If that were to happen we are in agreement that I shall get at least a partial refund.

I will also be dropping my claims against Ramsley and Isabella.

Thanks everyone for the support and I hope we all can move past this.

I will be updating on whether or not I got the head.

From this point on this all is yesterday and we're here today. Let us move on.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE 2/20/11: After everyone calmed down here is the conversation that took place. Granted there are a few jabs here and there but for the most part it was kinda civil

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575891833662973890

So I am now hopeful that things will work out. I hope we all can move past this.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've just about had it with this mess. I knew I was being bullshitted from the get go
but I wanted to be nice about it ya know?

On January 28th I won her auction on a foam base head, which in her auction it
states that she would send the product 2 days after receiving payment.
Its now 22 days later and still no head. I even paid the same day I won the auction.

I was dumb enough to send my $70 payment as a gift so now I cannot dispute it on
paypal. But hopefully linking them here with all my caps and proof they can see
the sham taking place.


https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575591950771016450
Here is the auction I won. I highlighted some areas for Paypal so they can see that
my $70 transaction I sent as a gift was indeed used to pay for this item.

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575592198071858610
Here is a cap proving that this is the email she wanted me to send money to. Again
this is more for paypal since I am linking them here. Notice how on the 28th she says
she'll send the item out 2 days after the auction but yet on the 2nd (5 days later)
she says she'll send it out Thursday (6 days after the auction)

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575591954863520914
proof I sent payment.

So I got a bot antsy and tried to communicate her about my item
https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575591952384988226

No response, and I found out she was on the beware before.. but she finally responds!!
https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575592192824700130

But when contacted again she goes back to not responding.
https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575591954331408738


Peeved I go to do my own research on her and I found some rather discouraging signs of trouble
https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575592199729919810

On her auction page, her emails are not verified. But I remembered something about those
emails that were more disturbing. I took on of those emails and tried to send money to it.

https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575591955413851522

Look! You can't send money to that email! This is more for Paypal when they read this.
Looks like she may be evading a block or something.

And lastly not to sound rude but on her page it looks like someone else is having the same problem
https://picasaweb.google.com/100534089975315432388/IsabellaPriceBeware?authkey=Gv1sRgCJnRg46U3azfkAE#5575601309979727714
(look at the last comment)

After dealing with her for this long I was told I'd receive my head by my birthday (the 17th)
and its still not here. I'm just about fed up at this point and I have asked this artist for refunds
multiple times in my paypal dispute against her and in my emails. I even asked her kindly
for pictures of the reciept/ reciept shipping lable so I can have proof that she sent it
cause this could very well be the Post office's fault.

Well her scanner is at her grandmothers house with no internet as well as her camera
and it will take a few days to get the pics. So I ask her Does she have a phone? Does it
ahve a came to take pics? She says sure and to text her.

I surely did. I sent texts that got no response. Then I finally sent a text asking if I even had the right number
and the response I get:

"Yes this is right. I am sleeping at the moment."


Um.....wtf?

So I text her back somewhat brash and still kind stating that this is $70 of my hard earned money
we're dealing with and March (FWA) is fast approaching. When will she give me pics.

The response I get:

"I will be up in the next hour or so"


........fed up. Done. Filing claim now.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS PERSON. EVER,

I understand life is tough..I understand not having a car....but..all she had to do was
call the PO schedule a pick up and they could have came to the door to get my package.

I hate doing this but I have no choice.
Artist's beware has moved!

I hate it for ya. I really do. I was hoping people would read back on her crap tastic ways. She got me. Though after about a year, I got this POS foam head. For weeks and months, all sorts of excuses. I was just beside myself with how it went. When I saw her open up for a head commission, I was thinking to myself, Maybe things have changed, maybe she's not scamming people any more. Nope! she keeps coming back up on the radar at least once every year or so. Dang shame it keeps happening. An absolute shame.

I keep the head in the other room and use it for kicking around and stepping on.

Do they have your credit card or something on file and then just charge you for whatever the package weighs?

If you wanted to print off a label and ship it, then you'd have to have a scale at home to do so with. (I mean, unless it's a flat rate box.. but they don't make them big enough for suit heads.. ) I'm a bit confused as to how that process works, and I think if I could find some way of how it does actually work, that I would have an easier time of swallowing " Just tell the Post Office to come pick it up. "

(I'll read up on this, but I'd like some input from someone who has actually used the pick-up service before. )

Sorry to hear that's happened to you. I hope everything works out for the best.

If I never get anything my goal is to discourage people from buying
from her.

Its so upsetting people like her exist.

Thanks for the support.

The only part I'll address is the last part about texting her. If she WAS sleeping, you could have given her a little bit longer. It seemed a little brash to turn around and start a beware when she said she just needed a couple hours or so.

Of course, it should never have gotten to that point in the first place. I'm only saying that while it's not right of her to not give you any update at all, ignore your contacts, etc, being pushy while it's the middle of the night for her(assuming), is not the best move. Not that I blame you.

For everything else in the post, she doesn't seem to have much excuse for not getting that head out to you. I do hope this beware helps her get in gear and you get it soon C:

Feb. 20th, 2011 07:49 am (UTC)
Well She this was early in the day around 12 noon my time. I posted this beware well in the evening around 8pm my time with no response from her at all.

Don't feel sorry for her.

Sorry that it went this way! This surprised me. She's always been sweet and my transactions with her went perfectly. I'm probably biased a bit, as I think she's an awesome gal, but we DID do business.

Sounds like she might have too much on her plate when it comes to larger endeavours. though honestly I don't know the situation that well at all.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think paypal actually froze her account. That could be why those emails show up as unconfirmed. I think she has to use her friend's now.

Never send payment as a gift. You won't win the dispute.
If an artist asks, just pay the stupid $1 paypal fee for them. It's worth the protection.

Good luck.

About Isabella Price
Alright Chum, First off all i am Isabella's Personal long time best friend. I know her extremely well almost over 5 years now. She isn't trying to rip you off, she is just Slow with here work, and has been for as long as I've known her.

Now, More importantly, as you mentioned here at the end of your journal, she had told me today that you had Sent her a text asking if you had the right Phone Number, she was sleeping and when she Just wakes up like that, she's rather absent minded most of the time, and that's why she then told you that she would like to get back to you when she was fully awake and able to reply correctly. However, you then demanded that she send you photos of her Receipts from the post office, which she has told me, that she Also did today! So you Should have gotten those, and if you didn't, it wasn't because she didn't send them to you!

Secondly, i Strongly and VERY Intently suggest that you DO NOT dispute that Paypal account! If you look at my user name and look at "her" paypal, you'll notice they're the same! That's because that is MY paypal account, and i will be Very outraged if you try to close it! >=( I have agreed to help her out a long while ago, by using my account so that she can keep up her services to possible fur suit customers and anything else she may have need of it for, However, that is Still My account! She had lost her own personal account when she was attempting to apply for a Paypal Debut card, but since she doesn't have a regular job, fur suiting is how she makes any money, Paypal found that she has no Credit Score, and there for closed her account Permanently until she gains credit! She never had her account closed due to any issues with previous clients or disputes, simply because she has no credit. Also, she had informed my that she DID in fact send out your package as of 2/16/2011 with 3 day priority, and that you were supposed to have received it as of Today! If you haven't, this IS a postal problem, Not hers, that she hasn't sent it, because she Has!

Now, personally i don't appreciate you, and all these other stupid people in the past, who's been foolish enough to ever have posted here on these stupid Artist beware sites! Generally, she's always been kinda slow with up dates, and sending things out in the past, but she's never just been here to rip anyone off Ever! >=(

About Isabella Price
Also, for two weeks now, she's been Staying over at her Grandmother's house, where she has absolutely NO internet access, This is to explain just why she hasn't been replying to all your Harassing E-Mails to her! SHE DOESN'T HAVE INTERNET! Simple as that, why if she had warned you of this, would you ever assume that she is simply avoiding replying to you? its absolutely ridiculous that you would assume that, when she clearly told you that this would be an issue! Another thing, i See her nearly Every day after i get off work, and she has been working very hard this entire time that she has been staying at her grandmother's house, to get All of her different types of commissions completed, ranging from Art work commissions, to Fur suiting commissions.
In fact, she Specifically is at her grandmother's home For this Exact reason! She has been making far more progress working on her commissions at her grandmother's quiet and seemingly empty house, rather than when she is normally at her own home, constantly being bothered by her sister's drama and dealing with no only that, but her family in General! So its not like she is spending these few weeks at her grandmother's house just for vacation, it was for the purpose of being able to get more work done since she would have to virtually deal with near no issues at all.

Now then, she Sent you photos on her phone as you rudely demanded, of the receipts! She Sent out your item as of 2/16/2011 with a 3 day Priority, which you were supposed to have gotten around Today! She's made it clear long ago that she is staying at her Grandmothers and has no internet and wont be able to reply to and E-mails of any kind what so ever! Knowing all this, WHY would you even be stupid enough to create a new "Artists Beware" journal on her! >=( I would, as well as her, would greatly appreciate you editing this journal, stating that the issue has been resolved, and i Personally am telling you NOT to start any disputes with MY paypal account, because if for some reason MY Account is shut down because of this, i will be Greatly angered with you!

Now then, if for some reason you did Not get those Text photos of the receipts, simply send her a Nicer text and ask for them again and she will gladly send them. And if for Some reason you did Not get you package in the mail Today, Simply wait another day or two at the most, because it Was sent out for a fact, and you were Supposed to get it today! And in the future, do a little more "research" on who you messing with, when creating these types of journals, because all you doing is picking on someone, who doesn't necessarily deserve it, and potentially causing problems for another person who doesn't even have anything to Do with this situation in question!

Look I understand having no car and net and other life problems.
Trust me, I've been there, but I at least went out of my way to let my commissioners know that. I would go to my best friend on the phone
and I'd ask her to send messages for me to my commissioners to let them
know what was up.

I hated posting this but I felt it needs to be done. Also to the count
Ramsley person if you didn't want anything to happen on your paypal
you should have told your friend to accept money transfers or money
orders. THEN she would not have the excuse of having to wait four days
for the money to transfer from paypal. At least the buyer will know she's
waiting on the money to get there ya know? And they can track it even.

Look, I've had time to calm down a bit and I don't have hard feelings so no one put Isabella down. I really do understand life is tough but thats not my issue.

My issue is being told that my item was sent and then it wasn't and now I am dissatisfied. I want my money back. I don't even want the head anymore because of this experience.

If I do indeed get the head Monday (I'm on a college campus so they close our PO on the weekend) then I'll settled this as resolved.

But I at least want the money I sent so I can even file the claim (I could not file the claim against the 70 dollars because it was sent as a gift so I sent more money so I can file a claim against that and include the 70)

I will hold up my end if she holds up her end.
Simple.

dude you just sent -more- so you could demand the rest back? I know you want your money back fair and square, but that strikes me as off. You're the one that sent it as a gift in the first place. :P

I understand that you're upset and you have a right to be upset after you've been strung along, but the way you're coming off in your replies and original post is extremely angry and almost to the point of frothing rage. It's really offputting.

You might want to just step back and take a breather for a moment until you calm down.

Looks like both sides here need to chill just a bit.

When contacting an artist, do try to be patient.
I do my utmost to let anyone buying from me know if I'll be slow or late but not everyone knows they will or finds themselves in a tight spot.
What you described sounds like you sent her a LOT of messages about this - it's unprofessional and bad practice but when hounded it can easily make people less inclined to do something as they feel pressured.
I know personally I quickly lose motivation and confidence if hounded about something a lot.

It's true you shouldn't have been kept waiting though.
Once winning an auction the item should be sent as soon as is possible to the buyer and not cast off as something that can wait.
When making a business for yourself you should be prepared to make regular post office trips and send things out to people.

I think you're giving the artist too much leeway here.

The item was promised to be posted TWO DAYS after the auction ended. When you pay for something like that, you are not paying for just the piece, you are paying for the piece to be delivered really fast. This is not an image, it's a foam head base, to eventually become a fursuit head. If it is not delivered on time, the customer does not have time to finish it and take it to a convention or other event, so the deadlines are pretty vital.
