Artist Beware: SweetNightmare Second Time

Who: SweetNightmare ( http://www.furaffinity.net/user/sweetnightmare )
What: Blue Fox Partial (Can't find any pictures of it anywhere now)
Where: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/sweetnightmare Transaction Conversation took place on Skype
When: September 4, 2013 to September 16, 2013
Proof: http://imgur.com/a/UTOXA & http://imgur.com/a/yAdzo
Explain: Was going to a furmeet Sunday September 15 and I needed a suit, I had just recently started talking to SweetNightmare again as a friend and she gave me a few excuses that made me feel sorry/bad for her (like I did in 2012) and decided to make her an offer on a blue fox partial (she sent me a picture of it when I was on mobile skype and I no longer have it and I cannot find it anywhere in her gallery now) http://i.imgur.com/mqmnln6.png as soon as she accepted the offer and me thinking she had changed I sent her the payment http://i.imgur.com/A6xkSBW.png once the payment was sent I got suspicious of her new paypal name and questioned her here http://i.imgur.com/dyBS6JC.png and as she promised she would have it out the next day. As I started reading into her FurAffinity Journals I started seeing people complaining about not getting commissioned items and no updates and being ignored which shortly after I had sent the payment she was 'busy' it played out just as my first transaction with her did. I asked for a refund she didn't respond so I opened a claim with paypal (claim conversation can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/yAdzo) So she claimed the suit had been shipped as she usually does, So I dropped the claim on her we had a conversation http://i.imgur.com/UTdr4Hu.png then she showed me how her account was over-drafted (because she was trying to put my money instantly into her account and paypal had it on hold, not only that but I noticed she was doing it to other peoples money too, I blocked out named of others. She sent me this screenshot herself) http://i.imgur.com/UgtffM6.jpg after seeing that I asked for the tracking number her excuses and here came her excuses http://i.imgur.com/By7A9MD.png , http://i.imgur.com/FVquXsa.png she ended up disappearing without giving me a tracking number so I felt it was in my best interest to re-call paypal and open back up the case, she had 10 days to respond with a tracking number which she did not and failed to post ANYTHING in the resolution center and didn't send me any further messages via resolution center and I didn't get anything from her on skype, if she sent me anything I never got it. In the end because NOTHING was heard from the seller (her) paypal closed the case in my favour.

Beware, SweetNightmare even in 2013 gives many excuses. I still think she's a nice person but I suggest not doing business with her, she's not credible when it comes to business and honest when it comes to shipping. If you want to do business with her please beware of how she acts when it comes to money.

similar stories...
I am curious about what the fox looked like, because I bought a used blue fox head from her in July 2013. The head arrived, and I didn't have much probs with her, though. My only prob is the head she showed me pictures of, and the one she sent me were a bit different.

This is what I got, before I redid the eyes and nose: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/11191742/

Here are the pics she showed me: http://imgur.com/fC8YCcP I KNOW this isn't the head I got because the eyes and tongue are different. The nose is similar, but the black markings on the muzzle are smaller.

http://imgur.com/a/ChoYj (not the head I have, different nose and markings)

I had to get on her for info on if it was shipped or not, especially after I saw posts here. After a few days she got me tracking info, and the head thankfully showed up (lesson, of course, is always look here before you buy).

Re: similar stories...
It looks like the same head to me, it just looks like some changes were made between when the pictures were taken, and when you got it.

A Question About Paypal Accounts
I realize this is slightly off-topic, but there's something I've been confused about since the last Sweetnightmare post and I wanted to get a bit of clarification.

How common is it for an artist to have multiple Paypal emails for clients to send payments to? One of the things that caught my attention in the last post was that clients who came forward had paid to multiple different accounts under SN's instruction, and three of those emails were listed under other people's names.

I know a lot of artists will have a personal account and one set up strictly for business, under say a business name and such... But it seemed like she was using other people's accounts to conduct her transactions, for the most part. Is this a common practice, or am I right in feeling like that comes off as really shady and raising big red flags?

Re: A Question About Paypal Accounts
Using someone else's Paypal account is shady, imo. Unless someone is from a country where Paypal is not supported, there should be no reason why a person is using someone else's Paypal. Especially when we're talking hundreds of dollars per transaction. It also lists the income under that person's account, which may be easier to avoid taxes.

Hello there, I wanted to comment here so you didn't think I forgot about you. I am sorry you and I had our bad experience but I am not taking commissions anymore, like, ever.

Want to explain why you have had almost a dozen, if not more, paypals over the last three years?

Look you guys. I need to work and care for my commissioners (getting them paid) and my family as well. If anyone wishes to reach me my email is overtherainbowsuits@gmail.com

I am sorry to Jazz as I stated in the other post and I am working my very hardest to remedy the situation. I am glad she got her refund.

Again, there is my email, and my skype is silver.frosty1
Hating on me is not going to help anyone. All I can do is apologize, not take commissions, and do whats right. So thats what I am doing. Please everyone, have a good day!

While I think the dogpiling is a little much (And we're trying to keep that to a minimum), I don't see any real -hating- going on. If you are being harassed however please do not hesitate to tell the mods here on AB. We don't condone that sort of thing here.

However, folks disagreeing with you, asking you important questions, or explaining their upset is not 'hating'. They have pretty legitimate reasons to be angry with you.

The best you can do is trying to fix the situation, which is sounds like you are - so keep that up.

Oh man, I think you got lucky - I thought once you canceled a dispute with paypal it could not be reopened!

In case it's useful to know: she's made a bunch of those blue foxes; I think it's her ex-boyfriend's character being remade all the time and then sold off afterwards.

Re: Artist Beware: SweetNightmare First Time
Hey there, head mod here!

In our records, it looks like all the posts you submitted had identical text to this one. I'm not sure how that happened, but I'm sorry for the confusion. Next time, feel free to contact any of us moderators using the information on the A_B community info page.

Because your two posts are about the same person, we probably would have asked you to combine them into a single post. Since you already have this post up, you can go ahead and edit it to add the information from the first transaction.
