Who: MurphyErasmus (Furaffinity) Don't know any of her other aliases
Where: Windows Live Messenger/ Hotmail, Furaffinity
What: Fursuit partial commission, including a head, tail, feet and hand paws. We came to
an agreement of 200$ for the partial, to be paid in 4 separate installments of 50$. All 4
installments were paid. All that was left was shipping charges, which we agreed wouldn't be
paid until after the suit was completed.
July 19th 2011 - We came to an agreement as to the price and what was going to be in the
commission. The partial fursuit with the head, tail, feet and hand paws. We agreed that
200$ would be the price excluding shipping that would be calculated later. We also agreed
that the suit would be paid off in 4 separate installments.
July 20th 2011 - I sent her the first installment of 50$ Which is noted below by the paypal
receipt. The payment was sent to email@example.com Later that day, she messaged me
saying she wanted to get started right away and ask for the second payment earlier so that
she could buy the materials. So 2 hours or so after the first installment was paid the
second one was sent, once again 50$ to the same email address. As shown by the screencap
July 25-30th 2011 - She contacts me again with a status update and states that she had
begun work and that everything was going smoothly. She then sent me pictures that are
August 8th 2011 - I sent her the last 2 payments, both each of 50$. I noted in the
description section of paypal that these were payments for a fursuit. Like the first two
payments these were sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and they are proven by the screencaps of
August 9th 2011 - She contacts me on msn to state that she has received the payments and
that I should be getting the suit sometime around October, and that shed message me on FA
sometime during October when it was finished. I don't message her again until November 1st
because I assumed she was working on it and I didn't want to be a bother.
November 1st 2011 - I message her to enquirer about the fursuit cause she failed to
contact me about the completion.
November 7th 2011 - She responds to my message and states that she might be dying of liver
failure so she hasn't had time to work on it. She states that a few things needed to be
fixed on the suit and states they should be done soon. I sent a response saying that that
was ok, cause of the "circumstances".
November 16th 2011 - She responds to my message and states that she was sick and didn't
have time to work on the suit. She also stated for the in-convince that I would receive a
few free badges, and pictures as to were she was in the progress. I ask if I can receive
the pics by that Sunday, she stated that she could do that and it was never done. When I
messaged her back. I got no response. I send more messages after this inquiring what was
happening to no response.
February 7th 2012 - She finally responds to my messages from November 2011. She now states
that she still hasn't done anything on the suit cause she was facing eviction and cant
afford to feed herself. She gave me two options, she could either finish it or just give me
a refund. When I stated what I wanted, her to complete it, she responded with an ok.
March 1st - Present - I've been messaging her every two weeks inquiring about the fursuit.
She has yet to respond to any of my messages and it was at this point I have come to
believe that she just took my money and ran with it. I've also commented on her FA page and
gotten no response.
August 1st 2012 - Friend of mine also comments on her page about the fursuit commission.
