Recently I was paying off a pre-owned fursuit when I decided to opt out shortly after I had sent the first payment. The whole ordeal seemed kinda suspicious to me, the owner wouldn't send me new photos of the suit's current state and they wouldn't reply to me right away as they would with other clients. I wasn't the first person to back out from this suit, 3 other people before me had done the same thing.
It's over a month since I had requested a refund and I have only received $100 out of $450. I was promised $200 on the 1st but had gotten $100 a week later instead.
I had asked and the owner won't be giving me back the full $450 because 1) I had opted out a day or two after I put down the payment and 2) they just purchased a house so my money was spent right away. 2 weeks ago I was told that I would be sent the rest of the money this week and haven't gotten anything. I just sent them an e-mail asking what was up.
I'm extremely wary because they just sold a few more pre-owned fursuits and haven't decided to pay me back, let alone get in touch with me...
What should I do in a case like this? I'm trying to just get my money back at this point. I don't think I'm the only one; I had asked the people who backed out before me and they said that it took them a long time to get all of their payment back. The person apparently spends the money right away.
