This is actually just a help post. I'm trying to get a hold of Cateagle (FA)
It looks as if their account was wiped, they've left, or some such thing.
They have had a pending commission waiting with me (To modify an original sketch i had to look like their character, and to colour/finish the image as well.) After the 2 moves in the past 8-ish months, I cannot locate the original sketch and have been trying to get a hold of this person about this issue and am very willing to give a refund or to create something else for them if they wish. (I can also easily digitally edit the scan i've had of it but since i'd not have the original to send them anymore i wanted their approval of any action to be taken before proceeding... But again none of the notes i've sent them have been read since early July :/) I've even sent them an email to the paypal address they sent the payment with, no answer either.
Does anyone know how to get a hold of this person? Do they have another account? Another email? Has something happened to them?
On that note. What should i do? They paid me $40 for this but with their account down and no answers to the email on their paypal, what should i do? Should i just refund the money to the address that was attached to their paypal account and call it even?
(I can screenshot the email, the unread notes, etc. if people want. I just don't think its entirely necessary at this point. I just hope this person is okay :/ )
EDIT: I took the advice of a few, to paypal him a small sum, asking for him to contact me, the reason why, etc. I sent the payment Oct 3rd, He accepted the payment on Oct 10th. But still no contact.
I also took the advice of another, to see if i could contact him through a friend of his. I found a friend of his from his FA (Thank you to a commenter for the help!) and i was responded with a warning that he does disappear every now and again but that the friend would contact me if they were able to contact cateagle.
I have not received contact back from either of those sources. I'm a bit miffed, and i honestly don't know what to do. I had no contact from him after the paypal and i'm not sure if its even him on the other end of that paypal. I'd be afraid to return the money to the account without confirmation from him.
EDIT2: Was able to get a hold of Cateagle as of 1/3/2012. though nothing has gotten confirmed yet. The last i heard of him was 1/8/2012. I've sent an email every week or so, trying to get something figured out. (so 3. One in response to his last, one last week and one today.) I sent him one today, explaining that he is taking up a slot on my list, i have reduced commissions for the next three months and i need to pay my bills. I cannot wait for a long long time like before, to get something worked out. I've said that i will give him yet, two more weeks to come up with something, else i will simply refund his $40 from way back when, and it will be left at that. I really hate having to do this, but i really need to pay my bills... I cannot wait for 3+ weeks to get info. He says he knows what he wants, just needs to write it up and tell me. Hopefully, it will be worked out so i can get it done. Just figured i should give an update.
EDIT3: Well, its the 10th. I have refunded the money. Hopefully that will be all.
I guess thats resolved then.
