CelestBrook

In case anyone was wondering, I usually go by Ivy Trellis, but the name was already taken on this site.

WHO: CelestBrook on FurAffinity and CelestriaBrook on Weasyl, I'll omit the name given for skype, paypal, and email, however I think she won't use the ones I have listed here again, anyway.

WHERE: https://www.furaffinity.net/user/celestbrook/ and https://www.weasyl.com/profile/celestriabrook though I've attempted to contact her through notes on those sites, as well as through email and her listed skype. No responses whatsoever. I have also sent a money request over PayPal for the amount of the commission. No response yet.

Thanks to a comment, adding in http://www.furaffinity.net/user/southerngirl90/ and http://southerngirl90.deviantart.com/

WHAT: Digital art: https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/5538613/ https://www.dropbox.com/s/4qnt8z6sq0w45kf/pirate%20crew%20slots.png?dl=0 A position in a sky pirate crew in which (direct quote) "each person will get at least 4 images with their person in the image. If I decide to do more well then that is on me. So basically you are only playing for one image when in fact you are getting 4 detailed and shaded images."
13 people are listed as having paid in the journal. It could be others have paid, too, but weren't noted as having done so.

WHEN: She took a set of several commissions in a theme during mid to late March, and I paid on March 25, 2014. This is the journal: https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/5538613/ I took a screencap also of the people in those slots in case it gets deleted or something. (unlikely, she hasn't been on FA in about 6 months now) https://www.dropbox.com/s/4qnt8z6sq0w45kf/pirate%20crew%20slots.png?dl=0
On April 1, 2014, she posted a journal about being on hiatus while she was staying with family. https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/5635577/
After waiting for a long time, I began inquiring about her well-being as well as the status of the commission. Time passed and the window for disputing the charge on PayPal came and went, so her commissioners can't get their money back that way. All emails and notes have gone unanswered.

PROOF: https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/5538613/ she has me listed as "paid" in the journal, plus this screencap in case it gets removed: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4qnt8z6sq0w45kf/pirate%20crew%20slots.png?dl=0
I can go dig up my paypal transaction if necessary, too.

EXPLAIN: She took on multiple slots for a sky pirate crew, offering four pictures per character, received payment for these, then posted this journal explaining a slight delay. https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/5635577/ After this, she never reappeared, never did the work, never offered or issued refunds, and never responded to questions or requests for refunds. It's now been six months with no sign of her. While I doubt that she'll try to do it with the same screen names. While it's only a small amount per person, the fact that she did this to multiple people for a sum of hundreds of dollars makes it pretty bad. Frankly, it leaves me frustrated that she led us on before simply disappearing like that.

Someone told me that she's still posting things on Facebook, and that they've sent her direct messages and she doesn't want to give back what she's stolen.

It's true.. She is active on FB and has ignored my message. Am sure she has ignored others as well... I was the fool that got two of these spots from her.

Do not use this community to harass the featured person. If her facebook is a personal space, then we will immediately screen it if anyone reposts it.

This makes me sad...
She owes me a finished picture as well as the sky pirate thing too. I thought something really bad had happened to her. :(

I know this is an old topic, but I thought I'd put a bit of an update in here. She has (just recently) disabled her FA page, probably because of all the angry messages from people she scammed.

I noticed a little while back that she reactivated her FA page and deleted the posts about the commission. I'm going to send her a note to see if I can get a refund or anything.

It was a failed attempt. It seems she's already blocked me.

Another update: after sending an email to her, she unblocked me and sent me a note asking about my paypal for a refund. She also posted this journal: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/8789343/

Received Refund
A final update on my end: I just received a refund for my part.
I can't speak for others, but my part is done in this. I hope it works out for everyone else as well.

Re: Received Refund
Glad you got your refund! I'll mark this as resolved for you!
