Avsun Again

WHO: Avsun Mascots


WHAT: Bodysuit Commission

WHEN: First contact was in September of 2010 when I approached them for a body suit commission.  The quote for just the body ended up being $319.00.

PROOF: Initial downpayment of $95 was sent in October 2010, and from then on I paid 2 installments on $112, one on Feb. 24, 2011, and another one on May 19, 2011. 

EXPLAIN: I had commissioned them for just a bodysuit, which I thought would have been done quickly.  As many people have said before about this company, communication was really fine at first, but then dwindled.  I should have realized something was up (but apparently i'm a bit stupid), when they tried to keep getting communication via telephone calls, but I always insisted on emails, so i never had a phone conversation with them.  Everything was fine, and I sent them a DTD, as well as the fur, since I had already purchased the fur.  There were about 2 extra yards of fur that were sent, because I had purchased enough to make the rest of the suit as well, but I was on a time cramp at the moment and didn't have time to cut off the extra fur, so I just sent all of it to them and asked them to send the extras back to me when the body was finished. 
Well, as you know with these people, communication slowly died away.  And I was really starting to get nervous, but then suddenly they told me that they were starting on cutting the fur for the body, so i was happy.  They then were in contact for a while (though their responses did take ages), and they were asking tons of questions about my preferences of spot placement and whatnot, so I became unworried.  

Finally, on May 21, 2011 (which is weird now that i'm reading through people's posts on this company, they apparently dissolved on May 1), they sent me tons of pictures of the final body suit all finished and being modeled.  I was all yay!  Within that same email, they told me they were going to ship it the next day and give me a tracking number.  

That was the last I've ever heard from them.  I have no tracking number, no body, and no further emails.

What I can understand from other people's posts, is that they decided to disband, don't have the fund the refund anyone, and have basically just disappeared.  What I CAN'T UNDERSTAND, is that they finished the body.  It's done.  WHY didn't they send it? And also that these pictures were sent like 20 days after they allegedly had disbanded.  I'm so confused. 

I've opened a paypal dispute for that last payment of $112, since that's the only one that's been made within the last 45 days, so hopefully I'll be able to maaaybe get that money back if I'm lucky, or at least have sent in another paypal complaint about these people.
