2 years to long.

Okay, I’ve been very hesitant about brining this situation up in public, but I’m quite frustrated at this point, so here it goes.

I commissioned a partial fursuit from chapeljax back on July 31, 2004, right after Anthrocon. I paid the full amount immediately of 470 USD via paypal and sent my character reference at that time as well. It has been 2 years and I have seen nothing but a single arm paw (photograph) since then. I have emailed repeatedly, attempting to establish completion dates at –least- 2 months in advance. All attempts have failed. I have been informed that my suit is 65% complete. I have asked to see photos, which I think is quite reasonable considering the circumstances, yet I have not been granted any (save for the arm stated above). If even a foamed head or –something- that would put me at ease a little. I have emailed Jax twice in the past week + a few days and have received no response. I posted in his LJ, where he informed me that the first email did not go through. I emailed the second time and have not received any reply. Does he not answer his gmail account? Do I have the wrong email or what? I know fursuit construction is –not- easy work, but neither is continuing to be ever so patient after shelling out 470 USD for a service over 2 years ago and having almost nothing to show for it.

Wow. Any one else having issues?

I apologize and I’m not trying to get the wambulance involved, but I think I have a right to say –something-.

Stupid sugestion I know but if the said person is not responding to emails and its been two years then why not file a dispute through paypal. They will investigate it and freeze her account until the matter is settled.

You can only do that within a few months, unfortunately.

you should be able to dispute it i did after 6 months, you could try contacting paypal you'd only be out enough time for the email or phone call.

I haven't asked for a refund yet on the fursuit because I have really high hopes that it will be everything I ever wanted once its complete, plus, I believe that Jax isn't doing this on purpose. I think that he needs to be very aware of his standing though, with so many people- something that will hopefully inspire some motivation to complete the work he was fairly paid to do.

But I will keep that in mind. I don't know if paypal would help me after 2 years from the payment... but I'm a very determined person. :3
