Artist Beware- Fittz/tc2m

WHO: https://www.furbuy.com/mypages/Fittz.html

WHERE: https://www.furbuy.com/auctions/1073512.html
Screencap incase it disappears after 60 days, I autobought the auction: http://tinypic.com/r/bi6yl4/8

WHAT: A cut and hinged, decked out resin shark fursuit blank.

WHEN: Auction was won June 28th, they contacted me the same day and I paid then, have not received product since.

PROOF: Initial contact: http://tinypic.com/r/ic2xc1/8
My payment: http://tinypic.com/r/2cxybnt/8
Proof of them not shipping it out, yet providing a tracking number: http://tinypic.com/r/tahrpz/8 and http://tinypic.com/r/2num0yd/8
Me asking them to respond to my e-mails: http://tinypic.com/r/2m7jmsm/8
Proof they're ignoring me: http://tinypic.com/r/idas81/8

EXPLAIN: This really stumps me. They claim they were going to ship it out and still haven't, even got the tracking and everything, just have to drop off the package. Beware very well warranted.

I HAVE filed a PayPal claim on this as of 7/11/2015.

Have you tried sending a new email, instead of a reply to the old one? Only reason I ask is because the last time I bought a commission, gmail moved the thread out of inbox and stopped notifying me about new replies.

I have not, I'll try that right now. That still doesn't make up for 2 weeks of the package not being sent out.

Even if that's the case, notification of a paypal charge-back might be motivation to get some pep in their step and take care of this properly.

As a note, the thumbnails tinypic displays under the OP's images can be NSFW.

I think it's wise that you filed a Paypal claim, this is just too weird :/
Be sure to leave feedback on their furbuy account too.

I haven't seen anything NSFW from Tinypic but if you're getting that, very sorry!

I'll go ahead and leave them feedback since I believe they don't have any right now. Maybe that will catch their attention, too.

They did, in the exchange of e-mails, tell me about the perks of having a business PayPal account. If that's the case, shouldn't they be aware of the open dispute?

Woke up to a lovely surprise this morning, they're not directly making contact with me but put the tracking number into the PayPal claim so they can slip through and I get nothing on my end.

Continue the claim. Do not close it or resolve it until the item is at your house.
Jul. 14th, 2015 04:03 pm (UTC)
Continue the claim, and upload a screenshot of the tracking number not moving, that should be everything you need.

A refund is adequate at this point, at least they're not asking you to drop the claim. Though if their partner can supposedly not access the workshop, how did they reply to the claim with a bogus tracking number, I wonder.

Refund e-mail from PAYPAL received this morning. In the past 4 days I've sent the seller two e-mails after they claimed they were going to ship the blank on Friday.

Thank goodness Paypal saw through their attempt at a ruse, glad you got your money back. It's a shame this seller decided to let this happen instead of doing what they were contracted to, but now you can use that on someone who'll hopefully be better about it.

This is being screened as it doesn't look like it's properly censored. Feel free to repost it once you've censored it.

Sorry about that, I was on my phone and don't exactly know how to edit things on there.

This was sent to me this morning (November 30th, 2015). Notice that they haven't e-mailed me since July, and this would be the follow-up e-mail to the ones I mentioned in the original post that they ignored.


Since then, I've muted them from e-mailing me again.
