Beware: Inu-Jean

WHO: Inu-Jean, Inujean

WHERE: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/inu-jean/ http://www.livestream.com/inujean

WHAT: Unprofessional behavior/business practices.

WHEN: Commissioned him back in August/September 2012 for 3 digital and real media pieces. Received one quickly, one wasn't started at all and was refunded in April 2013, and one was started in February, then partially refunded at the end of April after I set a deadline for completion.

PROOF: Conversation with first refund: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/50799487/stuff/InuJean/InuJenconvo1.png

EXPLAIN: I honestly didn't have much a problem until mid-April when he reopened for commisisons again without completing his owed work and commenced working on the newer stuff without responding to inquiries about progress.  Most especially galling was when he lied to me about not having been streaming, when he didn't even turn off Livestream's stream recording feature.  Arguably he still owes me twenty dollars for the second refund as I've received no work and paid eighty dollars instead of just the sixty, but since I am now blocked on his FA page and he doesn't respond to Skype messages, this is what it's come to.

While I agree he didn't specify a working order, I find his attitude and penchant for working with more recent clients after leaving others waiting for several months to be very off-putting, particularly when he wants payment up front.

As for why I waited this long, it wouldn't be the first time I got a refund in parts, and it was while trying to contact him that I found out I was blocked.

No, I'm not proud that I threatened to AB him the second time I mentioned a deadline. I was pissed, but no excuse on my end for losing my cool. I did wrong, and I know.

So, resubmitting, and if the FA link is broken again, I don't know what to do. I copy and pasted it right from the site.

Wow, he got rather indignant in the second chat log, the first one he seemed like he was actually concerned with the wait, then it turned right on it's heels after mentioning A_B. I can understand being upset but, I really don't see how the attitude was necessary on his part, particularly after the wait.

Yeah, I screwed up on losing my temper. That happens when I'm already frustrated with a long wait and snark.

Damn! :O He blocked you? Did he block you on Skype too? At least he refunded your money back for the first one. I wonder why he gave a partial refund? Was the pic half completed or something? Man it llooks like he took you off the convo in the second chat! That was stupid.

Well, his journal at the time had the status at 90% complete. For over a month.

And as you saw in the conversation, he said he only had one character left to go. I never saw any proof beyond the stream with the first character, no WIPs, so I can't verify anything.

As you can see in his journal here: https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/4655538/ I'm not the only one he'd owed stuff to. Doing current commissions and hasn't even started on so much of his backlog. I don't know what to make of it.

Addendum: I don't know if I'm blocked on Skype, all I know is I haven't heard any responses from him.
