Who: Teahound

Where: https://www.weasyl.com/~teahound
http://www.furaffinity.net/user/teahound (inactive)

What: $30 story commission

When: June 2013

Proof and Explain:

On June 11th 2013 Teahound opened for story commissions. I took a slot for $30, and we took the conversation to notes. We got the story idea hashed out and I sent payment shortly after.

Checked in during August 2013
In November 2013 I checked in again and decided to take a refund.
Subsequent requests for my refund have come up with nothing.

Recently Teahound made a journal on his Weasyl stating he wanted to get in contact about owed work. I've emailed him, but that has gone unanswered to this date.

A glance at his Weasyl journals shows that he's still taking commissions to some degree, yet I am owed a refund since 2013.

Edit: Shortly after posting his Teahound has been in contact with me.

Edit 2: Teahound and I worked out that I would be happy to accept the equivalent of Flight Rising currency. So far he has paid me 1,000 g which is equivalent to $10 USD.
Edit 3: Another 1,000g paid on 02-06-15
Edit 4: Another 1,000g paid on 02-07-15. This is now resolved.

Have you tried posting in the specific commissions journal (the new one) that they still owe you?
It's not really cool to 'start drama' but a public posting would let you know fi they're ignoring you, especially if they hide your comment.

Something along the lines of 'Excuse me, If you are taking new work may I have my refund from November '13?"

Yes, it's here but he's responded shortly after posting this.

I really hope you get your funds back but he's really dodgy about refunds.
He owes me funds too for personal things. Never seeing that again I'm sure. But that's not for here! I really hope you get it back, I'd say post something on his page or journals.

Have you tried his current twitter account @tinypursedog

He switches twitter handles so often that they're a real unreliable way to get hold of him.
Feb. 2nd, 2015 11:12 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but his other accounts (@queerlittlepup @and possibly others) @are locked. He does use it fairly often as I see friends retweet him offering commissions for FWA preorders.

After thinking on it, I'm going to screen this because the middle paragraph is fairly personal.

Feel free to repost your comment minus the discussion on Teahound's medication, however, as it sounds like you're owed work as well.

I feel the medication bit is important, because it points to lying to get commissions that are then never fulfilled. However, I don't have the screenshots to back up a claim like that.

Primarily throwing it out there that this isn't the first time Teahound has skipped work without contact, and in my case I've been blocked most places, so I can't contact him.

Wow, running off and blocking you so you can't even get your art or refund is worse than running me around for over a year. =\
Feb. 2nd, 2015 02:08 pm (UTC)
Och, yeah. He got me too, a couple years back. I bought a HTTYD figure off him and never got it, despite multiple contacts to try and get it shipped.

I eventually did recieve a refund after A_B was brought up; I had contacted moderators and got the okay to post. He refunded me after I told him that. I wouldn't do business with him again, despite past transactions.
