Flarveon Still owes $150

WHO: Akemi/Flarveon/Poppy Pandacoon/Ash/AshlinAkitaBoy

WHERE: http://www.facebook.com/PoppyPandacoon

But purchase happened on FursuitAuctions here on LJ

WHAT: Fur purchase

WHEN: Purchased March 10th 2012

PROOF: Purchased from this posting: http://fursuitauctions.livejournal.com/2417221.html
Here is my purchase agreement:http://imageshack.us/f/705/screencapfursuitaction1.png/
Paypal record: http://imageshack.us/f/198/screencappaypal.png/

EXPLAIN:I saw a post from Flarveon FursuitAuctions for some furs from NZ, and I picked some out and sent payment.Due such a big response, she said she would pick the furs up from the store on Thursday or Friday her time, and mail them out same day or Monday.
I didn't her anything back so i posted on her face-book and she would post it out soon.
She made a post here: http://imageshack.us/f/31/screencapfursuitaction3.png/.
Since she had some family trouble I decide to leave it be for a bit, I then got a message on lj from fenrirs_child "Flarveon said she'd refund all of us, but I've not seen anything from it and I believe today is the last day we can dispute through paypal".
I miss that as I don't check lj everyday and missed my chance to file a paypal dispute.
Since then I have sent lots of messages and shouts: FA 1/6:http://imageshack.us/f/823/screencapfaask.png/
FA 1/6(I posted using my stuffitcreations account):http://imageshack.us/f/801/screencapfursuitbuy.png/
FA 17/6:http://imageshack.us/f/259/screencapfaans2.png/
Twitter1 18/6 (finally a reply): http://imageshack.us/f/4/screencaptwitter1.png/
Twitter2 18/6: http://imageshack.us/f/405/screencaptwitter2.png/
FA 5/8 (deleted):http://imageshack.us/f/835/screencapfa3.png/

This whole situation has left me feel sick. I see her post all the time yet she says she as problems with her email and internet.I'm just sick of all the excuses and lies.
I just hope no one else goes through this and if they have I hope the post it here.

Edit 23/08/2012: In case there is doubt she has no money, she just paid at least $50 on a tail: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/94/screencapfa4.png/

Edit 11/11/2012: Still no refund, still no replies to my emails. Still not going to give up.

Edit 9/12/2012: I calmly spoke to her at Midfur and She told me she just didn't have money and then reported me for harassment. But later as I was in the dealers den selling I saw her spending money on art and such.She even got one of her friends to buy hand paws off me (worth $100).
I still won't give up, I just want my money.

Edit 14/3/2013: Still no contact or refund has been issued.

Edit 19/2/2014: Still no word but under a new name http://www.furaffinity.net/user/ashlinakitaboy

Thats unlucky. She seemed really nice. I do remember the original posts on fur_auc though, they were quite some time ago.

All I can tell you is that an older male in her family passed away, and she had to come to Aus for the funeral. She's back in N.Z now and has been trying to sell her suits to pay for medical bills. (something to do with her leg I think). I'm 90% sure I've read this in her journals at some point, but it might have been one of her friends.

In short, she seems to be having financial difficulties, but I'm not sure why she hasn't explained it to you guys or just linked you to her journal, instead of deleting your posts. Strange.

Best of luck in getting your money back. Same for anyone else who has money outstanding.
Aug. 11th, 2012 12:35 am (UTC)
Oh wait.. just checked her accounts.
Says that she is going to MidFur. I LIVE in Aus and for me to go it would be around $1500-1800. (flying from NZ I imagine would be more expensive)
has journals deleted...
none either

Hmm. I take it that means she's not having issues anymore then.. looks suss.. D:

This isn't fair to you. I hate thinking like this but I fel she's ignoring you in hopes you'll quit asking about it. She does has the funds to pay you back since she just recently sold a fullsuit I believe. And if she doesn't she needs to at least get back in contact with you. =/
Aug. 11th, 2012 10:47 am (UTC)
I'm not going to give up, I'm going to Midfur to so if worse comes to worse I'll confront her there. Really she sold her Artslave suit?

I still feel horrible for not messaging you sooner. I still haven't gotten an explanation or even so much as an apology from her, and my experience was exactly the same (short of her deleting my shouts).
Aug. 11th, 2012 05:58 am (UTC)
Did you ever get your refund from her?

Have you post here about that? The more people we warn the better. Me too.
Aug. 11th, 2012 06:19 am (UTC)
She was also looking to commission someone a little while back, was in contact with me, but contact dropped and she never went through with sending me payment. I hadn't done any work, so it wasn't a big deal, just saying...she probably should be putting money toward paying people back when she has it.
Aug. 11th, 2012 10:50 am (UTC)
She recently commission someone on FA for 4 badges, so it looks doubtfully.

I knew she would be back one day =_=.
She should really start to have money backup in case of refunds or not use them all up before you you know you can get the hold of the products.
She seems she is going to a con AND getting a new fursuit so it seems she not that poor that she could not give you a refund, she had time. Its been many month since march.

Hope she will be refunding you (^y^)
Aug. 11th, 2012 10:52 am (UTC)
Yeah I saw that she recently brought a suit, I was not impressed. I really hope she comes around and refunds me.
Aug. 11th, 2012 03:31 pm (UTC)
Oh wow this is a big mess. Blacklisting for sure.
Aug. 11th, 2012 03:35 pm (UTC)
Agreed. I couldn't dream of taking her business when she can't finish up what she needs to.

Sad that she also JUST posted in August's positive review's post last night, so she has to know this is here too.

Man that’s a real shame :( I’ll be at Midfur this year I am pretty sure, I’ll be interested to know if she refunds you before then, and if she will be going if she hasn’t (that would be extremely slack!)
Aug. 12th, 2012 02:45 am (UTC)
Awesome, I'll see you there.
I'll let everyone know if she does, I really don't want to confront her in person but she might leave me no choice.
She basically stealing at this point, if you can pay 2 suits off and afford 2 cons in dec she can with no doubt afford to pay me and everyone else back.

thou it's beyond 45 days, there's a small chance PayPal may be able to help you. You can still try calling their Customer Service and hope you get someone who can help and/or offer advice. I'm sorry this had happen to you.
Aug. 12th, 2012 10:01 am (UTC)
Wow she still hasn't paid you back.
I don't understand why she just constantly runs from it and makes excuses, every time something like this happens she leaves for a few days, comes back and doesn't do anything about it.
Aug. 12th, 2012 01:01 pm (UTC)
Guess she hopes that it will go away.

That's terrible.

Good luck to you if you end up confronting her in person.
Aug. 13th, 2012 08:44 am (UTC)
I know, thank-you for your support.
Aug. 14th, 2012 02:18 pm (UTC)
As I've discovered through fighting with a hotel in Melbourne the last 3 months, instead of sitting around and pouting over how unfair something is you're better off getting actual legal advice rather than posting about on here because whether you're in the right or not is not up to you which is why we have a legal system.

No matter how 'right' you are in principal should you decide to try and take this a court or a tribunal they're going to turn around, look at this and possibly see it as a liability, damage to someone elses character and either slander and/or defamation which could completely annul your case if she decided to turn around and claim damages.
Aug. 14th, 2012 02:27 pm (UTC)
Actually, it's only slander/libel if the statement is false. Considering all of the evidence, I'd say the OP is covered in that department.

Wanted to share this.

[I'm 'bee']


Although she is a friend I don't think its okay to withhold money from who she owes it to.
I hope everything can get resolved x.x
Aug. 21st, 2012 11:08 am (UTC)
Thanks so much, I don't understand, if that's about me it's a lie because she never ask for my details and before I could send her any more info she blocked me.
Sep. 22nd, 2012 11:24 am (UTC)
I'm not sure if this is still going on, but I had the same problem but less money involved. I'm always weary of ordering through other people so I only ordered 53$ worth. I messaged her here and had no response, than I finally found her furaffinity a couple months later.

She had posted saying she couldn't get the fur, but said that my order was an exception and that they managed to get it out. And she mentioned something about an earthquake that kept her from getting the other orders? Something along those lines. Ether way, I never got it and never was contacted about it or even followed up with about delivery.

But I did have a different experience when I contacted her. (When I first posted a shout she got back to me in a day or two). She was being nice and wanted to resolve the issue but apparently had bad vet bills (or just got done paying one) and said she couldn't do anything right now. At the time I had no worries (now Im a bit concerned) and I told her I wasn't in a rush but I wanted to tie off loose ends by the end of the year. She agreed to it and I even said I'd be fine with two 25$ payments. She said she was getting paid on the 26th of September and it would be a 5-7 day wait (or so) for it to transfer to her account so she could send me 50% or 100%

I'm not sure if I'm in the clear now, or if I should be worried but I guess we will see by the end of the month, if not I'll be leaving more than an artist beware post. I thought she was a really sweet girl and I've enjoyed the chats we've had before this, so I hope she decides to buck up and stand up for what she's done.

Yeah I wish she was that nice to me, she is still not replying to me and hasn't sent any sort of refund.
