Okay so, my friend and I are having troubles with a commissioner.

WHO: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/kitnabarii
(other aliases)
http://www.furaffinity.net/user/kurokitten87/
http://kittai1988.livejournal.com/

WHERE: furaffinity.net

WHAT: Bidded on auction, never paid.

WHEN: June 23rd-July 10th 2012

PROOF: below cut

EXPLAIN: below cut



Nightlinez and I opened up for a collab auction on June 23rd, where KitNabarii ended up winning when it ended on July 2nd. I sent her a note asking about payment, which was ignored, after Nightlinez's initial note was ignored.
Nightlinez then sent more notes trying to get the payment out of her. As you can see, she promised to pay it 'tomorrow' which was July 6th. So far, we have received no such payments.

However, KitNabarii continues to buy art from others. I left a public shout to her which has now been deleted. She shouted back on my page claiming her baby is sick so she can't pay. The badges she is referring to are from Nightlinez which she ordered on June 7th and never paid. I responded on her page which was again, deleted. She gave more excuses about a sick baby, so I shouted again asking why she even bid on our auctions if she was having financial troubles. She replied saying that she did not know he would get sick. Even though a few minutes ago she claimed he got sick a month ago when Nightlinez first opened for badges.

She also appears to owe more people money.

She has now sent a note to Nightlinez telling us to re-start our auctions because she "doesn't want to keep us waiting". She claims she hasn't been able to get online, even though her favorites and submissions speak otherwise.

So, as a warning she seems very flaky and might just back out of paying you completely.

EDIT: http://i50.tinypic.com/2ltprmu.png
Nightlinez just received this note from her, trying to say it's our fault

She wasn't busy enough to read them, but too busy to respond back that she's sorry for the wait. Looks like nothing has changed.

She's got a bunch of bad feedback on Pkmncollectors for the exact same reason; buying stuff and not paying.

Ah. I was wondering what ever happened to her. How unfortunate she changed aliases and accounts and nothing more.

give her a little more time. she is a good friend of mine and a customer of mine as well.

she is currently in the hospital at the moment having a surgery procedure done. She might have to stay there at the hospital, so she may not be around for a little bit.

but she has always some way paid me here or there. either be it through a money order or paypal.

i understand she can be a little slow with payments but she is going through a healthfactor that needs her funds atm.

she still hasnt paid one of my works yet but i will be patient with her, i want to know she made it out of her surgery safely.

now i just signed up to LJ to say this.

Correct me if I'm wrong...but wasn't there another beware on KitNabarii right after this one? Explaining the sick baby....I am now awfully confused between the two beware posts....

I believe the auction she bid on was held by two people, and each of them posted a beware about her over the same thing.

Oh wow, that's so sketchy...I wish there was a way to spread better word about this. I am worried about the other auctions she has bidded on and won now :c I had no idea about her when she first bought from us.

God, I have a burning passion to link this post to the person who just posted on her shout(but I wont.). She apparently won THREE auctions...How dose she think she can pay for that with a sick baby AND surgery?

All of my block.

Yeah, it is really making me angry to see the shouts with all of the art she continues to buy :/

Yea, this isn't surprising considering her history.

Ouch guys this sucks.
I wish there was a way you could get your money but honestly... her track record speaks for itself. I'm surprised FA is still letting her be around, they usually ban people for habitual behaviors like this.

I really think she should be banned, we had no idea of her history when this all started :C And she is just gonna do it to even more artists, I am sure.

Sadly I've had a bad experience with her too. If I would've known her history I never would have contacted her.

I'll say that she was a wonderful commissioner the whole time I dealt with her, right up until she wanted to get a large amount of commissions from me, and then...no money order ever showed up. I enjoyed working with her, she paid promptly for the commissions she did pay for...but I suspected some time ago that there might have been something a bit odd, when suddenly her paypal no longer worked and she wanted to pay via money order for everything.

It could be that they're simply terrible at budgeting, which could explain having to pay health-bills while still spending more and more money on art.

If anything, she should clean up her act and try to map out a proper spending-budget, which would probably allow for some commissioning, instead of "buying art" without paying for it and then making excuses.

Ah, I wish linking the artist to this article was allowed, but I fear it may fall under the harassment-rule.
Let's just hope she does pay these artists. :I

I don't think I've ever had a problem with her personally...but, there was one time, where I was hosting a fun lil TinyChat and she comes in, starts ranting about how people "are out to get her", and then she randomly leaves without another word. It was.....strange, but still un-needed. I was kinda tempted to ban her from the chat. :/

But yeah, don't buy commissions unless you actually HAVE the money and PLAN to pay. :/
