Artist Beware; Thunderpoon Resolved

Below is the account of my experiences with Miikywhiskers/Aoifhe/Catslaps/412009074/Chisey/Nhyau/LiIIian/qewtie/Kiri-ty/Cattits.

Here are the following Usernames I know of she has/may use as of now:

On the date of February 4th 2015, I payed Chisey/Miikywhiskers, 80$
Some of which went to a character being payed off, a sketch, and the remaining 30$ went to a design commission.

On the date of April 28th 2015 I asked if I could have my design drawn as such - http://nhyau.deviantart.com/art/kiri-ref-wip-529636970
(You can still see my comments in the bottom if she hasn't gone as far as to hide them - if so I provide a screen shot below.

Proof of all payments -

I waited paitently for four months, trying to understand whatever she may be going through I then asked about the satus of my commission, wondering if she had forgotten.

Proof- http://orig02.deviantart.net/1c76/f/2015/238/c/0/eaaa5c04b3fa02c3eaa7203bc97aef62_by_avomeir-d979qq5.png She said she would try to get to it that day. That did not happen, and she spent the next two months taking on more ych's and doing various personal projects.

I waited two more months. During which she said she wasn't going to do design commissions anymore and we could either change it for a substitute or a refund. I payed for a design. I didn't want anything else, I also didn't want a refund because she had already spent my money and there was no telling how long it would take for her to return it to me.(The journal this conversation took place on has since been removed, else I'd provide proper screenshots.)

After a small dispute, and discussion she agreed to do my design.

I received my design finally on August 12th 2015.

This design is lovely, however not what I asked for. This design is on the waitress base, not the lines I requested and paid for. Seeing this I asked if I myself, or her could fix it. She had previously proclaimed to be profoundly busy throughout the past few months, so I assumed with what she had been saying, I would do so.

She responded with "yeah sure doll :3" Sure to which?? Her or me doing it? Confused I followed up asking if I was going to do it. I waited 10 days, no response. So I used the lines above and placed the design on it. She went off on me, for drawing on something I paid for anyway. She wasn't going to create whole new lines for me, she was going to edit the current ones I picked out as a reference. So why it was such a big deal I'm not entirely sure. She is very point blank with her commissions, she doesn't go out of her way to make them better than what someone paid for.

Conversation: http://orig04.deviantart.net/b760/f/2015/238/2/d/bf84322875a61109ed0856c3cebe39ea_by_avomeir-d979t2s.png

At this time I had paid 50$ for another art piece by her upon which the design dispute happened she said she would refund me. The design dispute took place on August 22nd 2015.

Proof of other commission- http://orig02.deviantart.net/b93a/f/2015/245/6/a/b3b878ffd8cffa02c56786f0da3d34e9_by_avomeir-d986g1t.png

I noted her setting up a deadline for this refund on August 25, 2015. I gave her a month from when she said she would refund (which was the 22nd) me before I would attempt to charge back the money. However, unfortunately after looking into it, I can only charge back through my bank within 30 days of the transaction, and paypal will not dispute digital goods. Therefore my only means to have my money returned is her giving it back, seeing as she has not responded or been very compliant I do not foresee a refund at all. It is now the 23rd and I still have not received a refund.

Proof of refund statement: http://orig07.deviantart.net/b8e8/f/2015/266/c/1/__by_avomeir-d9anskm.png

Deadline: http://orig10.deviantart.net/4108/f/2015/246/b/3/f50bcfba820216e9e7907ebe6382edbd_by_avomeir-d98a356.png

Proof she saw my message and knew about my deadline: http://orig00.deviantart.net/604e/f/2015/266/0/1/image_by_avomeir-d9amo2o.jpg

I say "Atleast my, 50$" Because I sent this message - http://orig08.deviantart.net/133b/f/2015/238/9/d/4970feddd17d3be2579b44a9897bc5f0_by_avomeir-d97a6px.png
Asking if I could also be returned my 20$ for not having my design drawn properly, however this was not required seeing as I had received atleast some of my good purchased. I wasn't going to demand for a refund of that 20$

Overall, it has been difficult to work with her. She does not cooperate with her customers, and will take entirely too long on your commission, coming up with plenty of excuses as to why it's not done. Please take this is a warning to all of those thinking of purchasing from her. Until she gets her act together and stops procrastinating and not having money to refund if needed, do not purchase anything from her. It is in Your best interest.

This is her too; http://www.furaffinity.net/user/qewti

You piad the extra for the chibis and busts, you should deff get them, if not a refund, as she clearly didnt do what you paid for. The upgrade $20 should be given back to you.

You can probably still win a chargeback if its within the timeframe. Clearly people win them all the time, even with digital goods.

(Also, off topic, but thats a waitress base?? Do you have a link for it, its super cute)

I'm not so worried about the 20$

I really want my 50$ back from the commission I received nothing on.

I know if I added the 20$ onto the 50$ I would receive nothing. (I'm not too sure I'm going to receive anything anyway seeing as she is purchasing parts to build a new computer rather than paying back commissioners)

There's the base!

Edit: also it's past the charge back date else I would have done so for the whole 70$. I even emailed PP and they said It was too late. :c

I accidentally deleted a comment on this when I was clearing my inbox/notifications! ;A; I apologize. I think it was just the link to the waitress base but I know it's a rule not to delete comments! I apologize I'm so sorry!

oh wow
I was wondering why thunderpoon got banned on DA. Now I get it. Wow.

Looks like they can add 'lying' to the list of bad habits they do.

Re: oh wow
Sad thing is she isn't banned.
Someone called her out on the tumblr blog deviantartheart,
and she ran to another account of her's to try to keep scamming.
She deactivates when stuff like this happens to not catch the heat of her actions.

I mean why would she stop when people keep buying and giving her money? She's going to keep on because this way she can do nothing and get paid to do exactly that - nothing.

Hopefully enough people have caught on by now so they'll stop funding her scamming career.
