Beware: Bad attitude- Marblesbravetail

WHO:  Marbles Skunk 
http://www.furaffinity.net/user/marblesbravetail/

http://www.facebook.com/MarblesBravetail


WHERE:  Over FA and, briefly over Facebook. 

WHAT:  A pre-made Coatimundi Character in which she was selling with another character,. http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6935026/
http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/3383844/



The beginning of the transaction: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7830188/



WHEN: Roughly Two months ago, I saw Marbles was selling a few characters, one of them 'Tori', a coatimundi, caught my eye and I inquired about a price, which is where the transaction started (on the submission advertising the character.) 

Submission page offering character for sale -http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7830188/ (Our initial conversation can be seen in the comments.) 

Screencap(s) of comments :

2.) http://i1117.photobucket.com/albums/k590/Serallis/marblesbeginning2.png

-Then I paid on May 5th, 2012.
Paypal screenshot:  http://i1117.photobucket.com/albums/k590/Serallis/1111marblespaymentpaypal.png

I waited for a while, then a few things happened (unrelated life things) and I ended up forgetting all about the character purchase until very recently, last tuesday; (July 2nd) 

I decided to give her a friendly poke/reminder on facebook to check in. 

A day passed, nothing, she had been active on facebook, 'liking' things and made a comment to someone. Feeling worried that I was being blown off, I sent a second poke that night, this time voicing my concerns, this is where the situation escalates; 

1.) Screencap 1/2 .)  http://i1117.photobucket.com/albums/k590/Serallis/marblesscreenshot1-1.png

2.) Screencap 2/2 ) http://i1117.photobucket.com/albums/k590/Serallis/marblesscreenshot2-1.png

As seen in the screenshot, I was met with attitude and swears and aggression. Despite being taken back, and a bit insulted, I tried to approach the situation as civil as possible. I decided there, by her attitude and failure to deliver initially, that I wanted a full refund, as I had not even used the character anyways.  She accused me of shorting her on an (unrelated) refund issued recently. I tried to explain a bit of why the payments ere either cents or a few dollars short (paypal fee.) She refunded me in full (17 usd) then on the note of "Fine I sent it back now leave me alone."

Although I was refunded in full after a bit of negotiating, I feel her behavior and attitude alone warrants a beware here. Very off putting in a transaction.  


PROOF:  (See above section.) 

EXPLAIN: (See above section, ) 

EDIT: Edited the screenshot links to hide involved parties (real) names

Approved, but please censor out the person's real name from the PayPal screencap.

Sorry! All links containing real names have had the names blacked out now. I'm sort of new to posting here, so I was unsure if real names were needed for legitimacy. My bad. : X

... Wow, her first reply to you in that screencap is absolutely appalling. I'm really sorry you had to put up with that. I can't understand why she freaked out at you so bad in that Facebook thread, even. O.o

Her attitude's been absolutely rotten anyway, especially lately-- I'm surprised people are even willing to work with her at all. :/ Any time I've seen her around FA it's always been either grossly rude comments, insulting people, or just straight-up trying to pick fights with people over fursuits or something.

At the very least, it's good that you got your full refund in the end.

Whoa, talk about an inappropriately hostile reaction to your reasonable concerns and questions @_@ Beware indeed!

Oh my gosh, no. No no, that's a terrible way to treat someone. Definitely avoiding her.

That reminds me! Does using the PP refund function fully refund the other person, including the fee? I think it does, but I've never used it before so I'm not sure (I was refunded by someone once but they sent it as a personal transaction to keep PayPal from touching it, I guess).

And sorry you had to go through that, I have no idea why she feels she has to be so hostile to everyone :(

Woah that is just...Bad. Why would anyone react that way to such a simple question?? D:
Is she still burned about being called out for sucking up to Rarakie or what? There's literally no excuse for that kind of behavior!

Good Lord what's with the snippiness? I knew she had a bad attitude from how she treated people who dare questioned her god Rarakie but if this is how she treats customers she shouldn't have any.

Wait so this artist has had a history before of how she treats people? Though what did you mean by her god Rarakie?

As a former friend, I constantly had to put up with her behavior like this all the time. x__x I finally decided after she rudely snapped at me on the Rarakie review, to just stop being friends with her. I didn't know she acted like this to others too. It's really sad to hear.

Alex, it really hurts me that you would say this, because it is totally untrue.
I was ALWAYS nice to you, aside from that one incident. I did everything I could for you, I gave you a ride to fwa, tried to offer you one and a room for az, and always listened to you and tried to help when you were upset. I was never mean to you alex. Yes I snapped at you one time, and I sent you a message apologizing which is all I can do honestly.

Isn't selling a character design something that doesn't involve additional work for the artist anyway?

Unless I missed some info, all she would've had to do was confirm that she received the payment and given the purchaser and something along the lines of "Okay, the character's yours now.", which makes the attitude even more mind-boggling, IMO.

If I'm reading it right, it was also mailing the ref to the new owner, which never happened.

I wish she hadn't have treated you like that. You seem really nice.

I'm sorry. :/

Oh lordy this girl...avoid at all costs! I swear she's just nothing but bad news. She was talked about during the whole "Rarakie fursuit drama" for being a huuuggeee white knight, but that's a whole nother story. I'm so sorry you had to go deal with that. Maybe this will show people she's a nasty person.

Beware well warned, and blocked! (I don't even block people too, that's how bad she is)

I'm really not a nasty person. :/

But I guess you will never get the chance to get to know me for who I really am.
