UPDATE- False Contests: KuroKitten87

This weekends turn of events from this previously titled entry A_B post has been resolved. I wish nothing but the best for the rest of the people KuroKitten owes; I hope you ALL receive what she needs to send you and begins to slowly rebuild what reputation she has left, back. As far as the outbursts and "Sock Puppetry" on her behalf all I will state is that Actions Speak Louder Than Words

For the full details of this resolved event and the end outcome please see the final update Edit #5 here: http://artists-beware.livejournal.com/531876.html

END OUTCOME: She mailed me a Western Union Check for $100.00 (I plan to deposit later today) as well as the art back and a note telling me her feelings. Total time to receive payment from being announced the winner: August 17th, 2010 - November 2nd, 2011

HERE'S THE PROOF IT CASHED A-OK YA'LL: "Proof: Western Union M.O. cashed :)" http://t.co/v3GSTDI

Additional info-
Her note word for word typed by user Kayla_la(thank you btw!):
Here is your money and here is your picture. I am sending both to you because even tho you are getting your money I dont want the art.

I told you I was sorry and I even appologized for it, but that apparently didn't matter to you but you know whatever. It really doesn't matter anymore.

Do what you want with the picture. Its your's anyway. It doesnt belong to me and it never did

That was the best fauxpology if I ever saw one. Truly classic. Brings a tear to my eye.

Kuro, if you ever decide to read this again, next time remember that silence is golden. The picture and the check alone, would have made you look a lot better than that letter ever will.

gotta agree with baddakutachi :/

the letter does come off as really snooty, and I love how she's said "oh it was never mine I don't want it anymore, even though it won the contest."

Not surprised she left such a rude response. She still dosen't seem sorry for her actions. I'm surprised she actually followed through w/ all the crap she pulled.

I really hope everyone else gets their stuff and also hope to GOD she cleans up her act and attitude before doing any form of transaction in the future. :\

I'm really happy that you got your refund. It's a shame she felt the need to send you a letter with the picture. Kinda seemed like a last spiteful jab. wooow.

Wow, that is the worst "apology" if I've ever seen one. How dare you want what you worked for!

Well, +1 to Kuro for actually doing something and sending the money. -1 for her "apology". Kuro, next time, just try to not say anything rude. It will help you in the long run.

Just wow at that note. Whatever credibility she had left just flew out the window.

Wow that "apology" really sucks. But I am glad you finally got your money.

Wow what a crappy apology. Sometimes the rule you were taught when you were a kid is one to remember. 'If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all'. Silence on her part would have worked better in the end.

Haha, oceandezignz pretty much said it all.

Very glad you got your prize, Dear John letter or not.

Glad you finally got what you were promised!

... the letter is snotty (as is sending the piece back) but I vaguely hope Kuro has learned something as it was written several days ago and her most recent journal edit is the first promising thing I've seen her say.

"EDIT 4 ... I was angry when I said that and honestly didnt mean it so to those of you that read it. I appoligize. And I really mean that. I think I need to work on my anger issues a bit as well as everything else, because really I suck at the whole emotions thing. lol This will be the last update I make to all of you except on the actually matter. I just wanted to appoligize for that and being hateful in saying it. "

Anyway, glad this is resolved for you, at least. Hope she does the same with everyone else.

Well, she completely and utterly ignored people bringing up stuff like from pokemon collectors and the other contest winners (unless she's addressed that and I haven't seen it), so I don't have much hope, but eh.

Gosh, that apology letter is so biting.

"Sorry that you were in the right and called me out..."

How horrible to have gone through all that for that much. :/

I even said I was sorry?...

That's supposed to justify NOT giving you the payment she promised?
Wow, girl has issues with responsibility.

Glad it's resolved!

Someone should remind her that saying sorry is not followed with "BUT..."
