WHO: PossiblySatan (DA), ActuallyCrowley (IG), HabaneroPup (AC website).

WHERE: http://possiblysatan.deviantart.com/ , https://www.instagram.com/actuallycrowley/ , https://www.anthrocon.org/user/70644/habaneropup ; Transaction took place on Facebook.

WHAT: Trade; pre-designed fursuit partial for some DVC supplies.

WHEN: January 13th, 2016 to now.

PROOF: Agreement cap, rest will be below: http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682725615300.png

EXPLAIN: Transaction began January 13th, see cap above. The post where we made our initial agreement is unfortunately not available any longer, but I think the screenshot explains it. We then discuss them purchasing me extra items from DVC, in which I make a basket and ask if it's okay to which they agree. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682735037900.png
At this point we exchange shipping addresses. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682737813000.png

I send out my half and give them a tracking number, they don't look at my messages for a few days so I give them a poke. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682780400500.png
They apologize for the lack of replies and tell me why they haven't shipped their half yet. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682780328800.png
They end up shipping out their first half of the trade that same day, giving me proof of the transaction. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682720564800.png

Their half arrives in the mail. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682742967600.png Like they had predicted, it got damaged and one of the horns fell off. I don't know much about apoxy so I end up selling it to someone else through FA (post was removed after sale went through, sorry).

Couple days go by, I ask them about the supplies. They reply that they're in a tight spot financially. They didn't reply to my messages (or look at them, Messenger will let you know if someone does) so I make a pre-mature threat about writing them up on here. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682712344900.png
They get upset and tell me that they're having a hard time with their job and such, then get mad at me for selling the skull head after offering to send me back the partial I traded to them. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682799866700.png http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682710160900.png http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682764952200.png
At this point I'm tired and I just want my second trade half so I say this. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682719969000.png
They send me some videos of the suit (unrelated) and we agree that they will end up buying me the rest of the supplies. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682778083300.png

Over a month goes by with no word from them. I ask about the parts again, they're still not ordered. I suggest selling the suit to get more funds and they agree. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682745650400.png
The suit is re-sold at this point (again, post was probably taken down since it was sold). A week or so later I poke them, they let me know that they've worked out a payment plan with the new owner. We're now into April. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682775133200.png

April 23rd I ask again. Still not ordered, car problems. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682711462400.png

Today (April 29th) they order a tongue and the jawset. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160501C/ezimba12682743587100.png
They let me know they're ordering it all in parts and not in one order like we originally agreed to. Note that they said "everything will be ordered" in the April 24th message, then say that they corrected themself without telling me. http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682714629000.png
They tell me how long they think it will take to order the parts, then let me know it's "whatever". http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682763995900.png http://www.ezimba.com/work/160430C/ezimba12682780857900.png

At this point I just hope I'll get my stuff at some point. It's being dragged out for too long, multiple financial excuses, "whatever".

Okay, but DVC sends you an email when you buy things from them, yes? Why didn't you ask to see that email as confirmation of the purchase before shipping your half out?

Are you referring to their first half or second? The skull with the horns they already had on hand so I'd need confirmation of a tracking number, which was given.
May. 3rd, 2016 05:46 am (UTC)
The second half, the DVC stuff. Why you didn't wait for confirmation that it was, in fact, purchased before you sent it out?
May. 3rd, 2016 11:22 am (UTC)
... Okay, now I'm lost. Sent out what? That's not me purchasing it, that's the person I wrote the A_B about. We initially agreed at the beginning I'd send my half when they sent me the skull, which happened. The parts were to come after because they'd take a while to be made, however I didn't expect it to take -this- long for them to order things so slowly at their own leisure and keep pushing back the dates, lying about their promises.

Before shipping your half out, sorry.

They can't order the parts and show proof of them being purchased? Like an emailed invoice from DVC?

That way, at least you'd know they've been bought, even if they can't be shipped out right away.

I thought about doing that too but I have limited space for my work so that's why i agreed to send it out with the skull.

It's funny you mention that because, from that screenshot, they could have chosen to NOT hit "place order". That's just confirming the stuff, not actually ordering it. Maybe I should ask for the confirmation email.
May. 5th, 2016 05:22 am (UTC)
Yeah, that's what I meant. The DVC confirmation email. That way, you know it's been ordered and you won't get fucked over again.
