Who: Ravinghachi/Neotoxin Wolf/Skittles/hellishballoffur/Rainbow Paw Creations
Website: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/hellishballoffur/
Where: Saboten Convention 2012
What: Trade-RavingHachi was to supply two conbadges as payment for a premade fursuit tail.
When: September 2012
Proof: Screenshots will be Provided below
Details: Skittles and I agreed to a trade at Saboten2012: my $60 tail for two conbadges by her. After being given specific instructions, she did one of the badges,and while it was cute, it wasn't what I had asked for and she had agreed to do. When I mentioned to her that it wasn't quite was I was hoping for, she flipped out. She blocked me, deleted my comments, and told people 'it was settled and she had paid me'. This wasn't true: she still had the tail, and I wasn't compensated.

Recently I again contacted her again about a refund on FA (screenshot). As before, she deleted my comments on her page (screenshot), but this time sent me an email. After a lengthy conversation where I was called a 'bully' multiple times for insisting she pay me fore the item she took, I was issued a refund.
I feel I was terse, but my intent was not to 'bully' her. (It brings to mind calling the police bullies when they arrest you for shoplifting.)

Although this is resolved, I'm posting the conversations. I'm not doing this out of malice, I'm sharing them so artists can make informed decisions before they conduct business with her.

Yeesh, that attitude is a nightmare! Definitely a good idea to avoid in the future.

Hopefully once she gets a little older, she'll realize that her immature behavior is completely unwarranted. :/

My only thing is you had caught her in a lie, and instead of saying "look for it yourself" I'd have put in on the proverbial table.

But otherwise, her attitude regarding this is still atrocious; a client who's dissatisfied with your end of the bargain,shouldn't be ignored because they "got something".

While yay for resolution, everything else is a frown.

There were a couple of reasons I didn't link the photos to her during those emails.
After a cursory check of one of her many galleries, all of the photos of her in the tail were deleted. I'd wasted enough time on this mess, so I didn't really want to waste even more by looking all over FA for the photos I'd previously seen (specially since they were several years old by now and probably also gone).
So while I understand it would have been nice to have proof of her lie to present to her directly, I don't feel like it would have really changed the outcome much, and would have just been a waste of my time. :/

(Sorry for switching between accounts between comments, I prefer metallik_hasse, but made the original post under this name, so I thought it would be easier to follow up with this one)

Thinking about it more, I did take another quick look on FA, and I was able to find a couple of photos with her in the tail.
I think this is the tail she usually wears with the suit: http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/mottenfest/8089253/11476/11476_original.jpg from here http://www.furaffinity.net/view/9557339/
The only photos of the tail she got from me are unfortunately not 100% clear. It's obvious it's not the same tail, but she could still easily deny it was the one I sold her. :/

Holy moley, that terrible attitude. Glad you were finally able to get this resolved though, it's just too bad it took this long and that you had to proverbially pull her teeth just to get her to do the right thing.

Not to mention I even cut the price by %50. :/
