Beware: Jinxsis

ADDED 01/02/12
I have received my charms and was not satisfied with them (warped and had paint on them). I asked her for my refund, she offered to re-do the charms. But I have grown tired of her and asked again for my $12 back. She's been ignoring my e-mails.


First Contact Dec 26th: http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p18/ShazzaKitty/ref.png

Second January 2nd: http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p18/ShazzaKitty/ref2.png

I know I should be satisfied that I got the charms. I'm not. I asked her before as well to just refund me, she promised she'd do both refund my charms and send them. Jinxsis has put a bad taste in my mouth as a commissionee.


WHO: Jinxsis aka Da Jinxsis

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/jinxsis/

WHAT: I ordered 2 custom Tail Wag charms from Jinxsis 9 months ago, she stated in her journal that the charms would be sent out the following week once her chibi que was cleared. About a week or so after she posted a journal how some charms she sent showed up to her customers damaged and explained how the charms were on hold til she found a safer way to send them. The journal she said this in she deleted.

WHEN: March 15th, 2011 09:07 PM

PROOF: Only proof I have are her journal entry and an e-mail between us. I don't have the PayPal statement as it's beyond 3 months old.

December 14th:  http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p18/ShazzaKitty/Jinxsis/march20jinxsisemail-3.jpg

EXPLAIN: I sent jinxsis a note via FurAffinity on August 17th asking about the charms, in return she posted a fury journal demanding all notes be sent to her via e-mail. I contacted her through e-mail (which sadly I cannot find) and she said she'd send the charms. After not seeing them I sent her another e-mail requiring them on October 22nd, and same thing she said to give her my address and she'd send them. Now it's nearly the end of the year and I've yet to see or hear from her. I'm beyond irritated at this point with her and pretty much lying to me that she's going to send them. And to add to this she keeps opening up for MORE charms making me think if she's even working on the ones she currently owes. At this point in time all I really want now is my money back.

Just so you know, you should be able to access Paypal records older than three months. Just enter the date using the little calendar buttons at the top of your "all payments" or "all transactions" page.

Not excusing what happened before (the artist seems rather unorganized, or at least isn't the best at keeping customers in the loop), but this journal was posted about a week ago: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/2972836/

"
This is my last charm related journal.

I am officially done with everything charm related.

Mass mail out on the 18th.

Follow Up to see if your stuff was mailed: {link added later}"


Seems like she is being contacted by quite a few customers about her charms and is expressing frustration about it though this journal. At least there is a mail out date to hold her to if she doesn't follow through this time since she claims this is "her last journal about charms"

Jinxsis is very hard to work with, and it's a shame as her art is very cute.
It took over two years for me to get ANY of the art I was waiting for, and she constantly deletes journals so it's hard to keep track of anything.
I had ordered a $15 chibi art pack that was supposed to come with like 10+ drawings, two of her "noseys", an "infected" badge, Halloween costume badges, a Pokemon "nosey" of Vulpix, a "pumpkin pixel" icon,two "fleas" icons and I think that's it.
She gets really ansty or upset about people asking anything, especially for mailing, so I bit my tongue and just kept waiting.
She kept promising me more art to make up for the wait, and for my patience.
I would see little bits and pieces of my order here and there.
Finally two years later I got a small package, containing a couple chibis, the badges at least, and three things to "make up" for the wait (However two of those were said charms which arrived shattered to bits). There was so many more things missing tho. I never got what the package had promised, I'm still missing a nosey of one char & the Pokemon. The icons were their own mess.
I just cut my losses and consider myself glad I got at least what I got.
Its not worth it to me to complain to her since I'm sure I'd just get a lot more excuses :c

Were the charms suppose to be shrinky dinks? I had a stint of making those and I found you have to wrap them in bubble tape when sending them and not try to save money sending them in regular paper envelopes.
Also didn't she advertise for some commissions on Teeny Com? I would like to know so if she does again I can be wary of getting a commission from her and not be misled by the very cute art.

yeah, she takes a LONG time to get things done 8/ it took her MONTHS to do a trade that i completed in just a week or two. This was with slight prodding and a lot of "I'll get it done" "I'm almost done" etc.

best of luck 8/

I also commissioned Jinxsis for a charm back in August:
http://www.furaffinity.net/full/6342995/
And it's 4 months later and I still haven't gotten mine either when it's clearly done and paid for.

I also commissioned her to do one for my boyfriend, but I haven't paid her yet for his, since she never told me where to send payment. >.< I dunno if his is done, I've seen no pictures of it at all.

She also told me she was mailing out mine soon and I've never gotten it. I noted her one night on FA simply asking about if she's sent it or not, and immediately after I noted her she made an angry journal saying NO MORE NOTES so I dunno if that was targetted towards me or not.

I wonder if that was the same day I sent my note, since she made that journal after I sent mine too D:

She did a freebie Pokemon Kigu badge for me, a badge of another character (that i commissioned) and I bought a derp of a German Shepherd for my ex while he was stationed overseas as a present. Don't think I'mma be seeing any of it D:

Haven't seen any of it haha. I still watch her and enjoy her art, and she's a nice gal, just not someone to business with unfortunately, as I've learned

I commissioned her over a year ago for two chibis and never received them. For a while she was making "Almost done!" journals and then just stopped and I never heard a word about them again. :T

Well I've yet to see my refund, since she said she'd refund me the day she got paid. I'm gonna wait a week and if I hear nothing from her or see my charms I'm gonna message her again.

She FINALLY posted an image of my now-ex boyfriend's charm but I still haven't received mine in the mail. I thought she said she was mailing things out on the 18th? o.O If she had indeed mailed them out then my apologies, but I am confused since I never gave her my ex-bf's address. I can't remember if I gave her mine either to be honest.

I finally got mine with my ex-boyfriend's, hate to say I was un satisfied since they were bent, smaller than what she told me and that she painted some details on the plastic. Now it's just hounding her for the refund like she promised -.-;;

Frustrating indeed.
I've had this exact same problem. I ordered two of her "Hang On!" charms in July or August, and gave her $15 for them. She uploaded ONE picture of them (Which she's deleted now..?) and showed me they were done, but my charm for Porter (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5903711/) was gray where it was supposed to be purple. When I asked about it, she said "Oh. It looked gray to me." O_o? No, I'm pretty sure that's a blatant purple.

That being said, she told me that once she baked them, the "gray would turn purple". Uh.. So is it magic paint then?

I sent her a couple of notes and comments asking when she was planning on sending them out, as the one I got for my husband was supposed to be a gift for him. Got no response. Finally, she posted the rage journal telling people to EMAIL their addresses. So I did. Never got a response.

I sent her a note TODAY (04 Jan 2012) asking if she ever sent them out, and she said that she SENT THEM OUT ON THE 20TH OF DECEMBER. The hell? I ordered these suckers in JULY. I told her that if I don't receive the charms within a week, I want my money back. And, seems the trend is that the charms are arriving shattered. If I receive shattered charms, I want my money back. Period.

This is NOT professional. At all.

Well it's now February and I still have not received my charms from her either :T I bought the charms in August. And I think she said she mailed them, so, where are they? :/
