THIS HAS FINALLY BEEN RESOLVED!!!!  Tho I still highly recommend NOT having any deal with her!

She is currently going by the username Resound-Valour (it used to be Yojiro-Sage) on deviantART and Sagome on FurAffinity.net

/// YET ANOTHER UPDATE!! - A friend of mine discovered she is owing commissions since 2008!!!!
.
http://www.iaza.com/work/111122C/iaza15597911993000.jpg
.
Also, instead of refunding her commissions or finishing them, she has decided to flee her account on deviantART. She is now Yojiro-Sage on deviantART. The fact that she won't face up to the commissions she's owing, AND running from them, she is truely guilty and aware of her actions but will NOT take responsibility.
.

/// ANOTHER UPDATE!! - I have uncovered commissions SagomeKitsune124 owes people SINCE 2009!!

Seriously what the hell? ._.
.
She also owes someone a Coyote pelt.
.
Thing is, if she's not guilty of anything why hide the comments by the person inquiring about their items?
.
Honestly, anyone who hides comments and has a rep in not fulfilling commissions is a real criminal in my eyes. If you are innocent why are you hiding things? :/
.
The other user didn't get the coyote, Customs didn't get it either otherwise they would have informed the user that their package had been confiscated.


///UPDATE - I have found more users on deviantART that have been ripped off by SagomeKitsune124 /  PhereandSagome of FurAffinity!!

Compare the dates on the screenshots!


Sagome's 2010 Fur Contest - http://www.iaza.com/work/111031C/iaza14917176628600.png (only ONE person got their prize out of 11 winners!)
.

/// EDIT - IMAGES HAVE BEEN REPOSTED, HOPEFULLY THEY ARE BETTER TO READ! //////
------------------------------------------

I would like to warn artists about an artist named SagomeKitsune124, (deviantART account) http://sagomekitsune124.deviantart.com. FurAffinity account http://www.furaffinity.net/user/phereandsagome
.
I paid her $10 for a plush commission of a character back in February ( PayPal transaction screencap - http://img585.imageshack.us/img585/8571/sagomepayment.jpg) and she told me she had completed it.
.
However it has been nearly a whole year and she has NOT sent the plush commission to me.  She keeps using the excuse that her mother won't take her to the post office.
.
.
I have gotten fed up of waiting, and of the excuses, so I noted her last night about a refund. http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/3719/norefund.jpg
.
{C}{C}.
When I tried to reply, I found out that she had blocked me; http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/962/sagomeblock.jpg
.
For someone who says they are working, and are making $1000 a month (http://img28.imageshack.us/img28/9220/making1000.jpg)... $10 isn't going to break their bank.
.
I'm very disappointed with this user. She is 18 years old and this is how she handles commissions. She already owes me money for a fox tail I had won in a competition last year, and never received; http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/3333/owedmoneyfromsagome.jpg
I am aware $10 is not much but it IS still REAL money. And what she is doing IS a federal offence. She denies commiting theft but STILL continues to make up excuses regarding shipping.
.
I have paid for this commission with PayPal, but she had asked me pior to payment to make it a Gift-Payment, and because of that, PayPal will not open a dispute case against her.
.
This is the commissioned plush I was suppose to receive. I got this picture from her back in March. http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h31/userpen/Sketches%20and%20Wips/vixen_plush_commish_by_sagomekitsune124-d3av7gt.jpg

yowch! I hate it when people make excuses to avoid working on commissions or refunding like that. I'm really sorry to hear that she blocked you and screwed you over

and since she's wanting payment done as a gift, this raises a giant red flag to me

Yea, never pay for something on paypal saying its a gift.
If they artist is really that worried about the paypal fees they can charge an extra $1 or so to cover it.

If she can't get it to a post office to ship it out she needs to NOT take commissions or have the post come pick it up from her.
Or she could walk, considering she seems to be making excuses as to why she's not sending it out yet.
I wonder how many other people are waiting for her to "find a way to the post office"
nukawin
Sep. 5th, 2011 08:16 pm (UTC)
Believe me, I am NOT going to pay for commissions with gift-payments ever again.

Excuses are her mother will not drive her to the post office. If her mother knew about what she was getting up to, not getting to a post office would be the least of Sagome's worries.

I know this girl. We occasionally chat over IM, and though it's not my fault, I still feel really bad. She owed me money and I had to keep bothering her for MONTHS about it until I got the refund. She has a really bad habit of saying "Hey, I got this for you!" and she will never send it. Unless it's a digital commission, I wouldn't advise ordering anything from her... especially after reading this post.

I think she's holding some contest now that has a prisma set as the prize (and the shipping on that might get pricey)? The only time I've gotten the product in a descent amount of time was when I won her last contest.

She's a cool person to be friends with... as long as there isn't any money involved. And I'm sure since she's 18 she can get in trouble, not her mom. Hopefully, this get sorted out.

If you read this Sagome, I'm not against you, but you have to stop slacking on sending items/refunding others... it's ridiculous.

I thought she was nice but after this, I don't want anything to do with her anymore. I just want a refund or my damn commissioned plush already.

I've commissioned LOADS of people to make/draw things for me and I've NEVER had to wait this long, it's pathetic.

I have also had a problem with her. Back around May I ordered a three character lineart from her and saw nothing of it. I didn't pay much for it and got increasingly fed up with her journals talking about how emo and sad she was and after communication with her failed I just deleted her from my watch list and sucked it up as a loss. I will definitely never consider getting a commission from Sagome again and advise other to be wary of doing business with her as well.

Sep. 5th, 2011 09:09 pm (UTC)

I can do the lineart for you if you want?? I don't mind at all, I am actually becoming more sickened by her now that I'm discovering more people have become her victims.

Did you see any photos of the completed work, or even WIP shots? If she didn't show you anything, there's a strong chance that she hasn't completed it yet. I'm not sure why her mother wouldn't take her to the post office either unless she's doing these plushies in secret or something.

Also, when someone asks you to send it as a gift, that's a pretty big red flag that they won't be honest with you and I'd question doing business with them. A lot of scammers posted on here like to used that method.

That said, I hope you get your money back.

I got that image back in around March.

Trust me, I've learned not to give gift payments thanks to this experience.

They will pick it up if you print a label for the appropriate cost/weight or you pay them extra to come pick it up. It's not like they just come get it, though.

Even though it's been so long talk to paypal anyways show them your screencaps and see if there is anything at all they can do.

One comment was someone calling her a bully (I have no idea what that was about) and the other was someone saying she was reported for theft.

I tried emailing them but they keep redirecting me to the stupid questions A.I :s

It's agents Paypal's rules to have people send payment for goods/services as a gift.
If you have a screen cap of that you may want to speak to Paypal about it...

you could tell paypal what they did because they're not allowed to ask you to send payment as a gift. Try calling them (paypal) to discuss it?

Legally, she should not be taking payment as gifts as it is against Paypal's regulations. They will close the account down if you get too many for transactions that are payments for goods.

I buy Transformers and most sellers want it as a gift - to cover my hide I just send it as a payment and cover the fees myself (which is ok - TELLING customers to pay the fees is not).

Definitely contact Paypal if you have proof she is taking orders and making clients pay as gift.

I know this isn't really 100% on topic but in reply to this...
"My parents are asking questions too about it. I always tell them when I make purchases online."

You too?? Damn, I told my dad that someone was mailing me a skull and he was bugging me nonstop to see. "Show me the skull you bought!!" "Dad it didn't get here yet" "When is it coming??" "I dunno dad, it takes a while in the mail" "Well I wanna see it!! Bring it in here!" "Dad it's in the mail!!! > :("

Then my sister hears us.... and it's
"Clay did you get that skull yet?? Where is it? Show me it! What animal is it?!?!"

Well it seems like nothing has changed. I am still blocked as this user continues to take money commissions for plushes. I have not heard a word of my commission ever being sent out, nor have I ever received a refund.

A disgusting person to work with. I have actually emailed police who are currently looking into it.
