Beware: KaiserFlames, DA

WHO: Alyssa, aka KaiserFlames

WHERE: http://kaiserflames.deviantart.com/

WHAT: As stated in the artist’s email here: http://i45.tinypic.com/302vypf.png



WHEN: I first contacted KaiserFlames on June 8 requesting commission details. We worked out what I wanted and the price on the same day, at the end of which my payment of $94.20 was sent.

A follow-up sent by me on July 25 received the response of: http://i49.tinypic.com/308iru8.png

I requested a second piece to be added to the original order, and sent the details through on July 26, after agreeing on an additional price of $75. I didn’t send payment immediately, as I hadn’t yet seen anything from my first paid-for piece.

Then – http://i49.tinypic.com/2rqhpgi.png

To which I replied - http://i48.tinypic.com/20tny2h.png

There was no response. The eagerness for my money, and then the lack of an answer when I asked for the work I’d already paid for made me start to think there was something wrong going on.

After seeking advice from friends, I requested a refund on September 12. http://i49.tinypic.com/2j0yqz9.png

That was when the trouble started. Suddenly, I was frustrating her by asking for the money I’d paid for the work I hadn’t received. http://i50.tinypic.com/oq8tuf.png

Lots more fun and games followed, including sob stories, attempted guilt trips, and more blame-shifting. The situation is, as of now, unresolved. My last email to her offered reasonable solutions before I open a dispute with the bank: http://i47.tinypic.com/1jlxqs.png
