Beware: Eccentricpaw

I never thought I'd find myself posting here, it's a really disappointing feeling. 
WHO: Eccentricpaw

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/eccentricpaw/

WHAT: Trade. I did a digital piece in exchange for a perler bead badge.



WHEN: 3 months ago was when the trade was completed.

PROOF: 
Untitled-1


EXPLAIN: I saw Eccentricpaw doing these really cute perler bead badges, so I approached him asking if he would do an art trade for one, you can see this in the comments here:

We agreed, and so the trade was set up. They completed their half 24 days after the agreed date, their finished half can be seen here:

Four days after they post their half, mine is finished and posted, and can be viewed here:

Shipping was discussed shortly afterward, Eccentricpaw asked me for $2 to cover shipping, and so I sent that their way. The paypal screenshot can be seen at the bottom of the "proof" picture.
Then all the problems came. Excuses, claims of a lost package, etc were made. I'm not sure if they forgot I had paid them for the shipping in the first place or not, because in that last message they said they didn't have the money to get it sent out, despite me paying for it. I was going to wait and see if the package would arrive after that last note, but at this point I am just so angry and bitter about the situation that I just went ahead and created a beware. I understand Eccentric was having trouble finding a home and had financial issues on their plate, however to my knowledge they had a month or two to get my half sent out before that occurred. Handing me the badge at MFF? I'd be furious! I paid for you to send it to me, not wait over four months to have it in my hands. They're starting a new fursuit business from what I heard, I really hope they give better customer service to those who plan to commission them than how they dealt with my badge. I am extremely unhappy, disappointed and stressed out with how this whole event unfolded.
