WHERE: FurAffinity

WHAT: A custom 'Keijin' which was/is their closed species - Paid $150

WHEN: May of 2015, payment was sent on May 22nd 2015

Everything, from the beginning until now, is in these screenshots. Oldest is at the bottom just like how you would read it on FA.
This was when she was still on her Keiiba account, where the original transaction took place.
Here's the sketched of my commission
This is from the past 2 weeks or so from her new account JONSIE.
These are refs that I had sent her when she asked if she could do art of my characters instead. I believe she sent me a message on facebook asking about it.
And lastly, proof of payment.

I'm not really too sure what to put here that's not already in the screenshots, but long story short I had followed her and her art around for quite sometime. We were actually even friends at one point, not super close, but you get the idea. I've always loved her art and she's always been a kind person with a good reputation so what could go wrong? I can't remember if I've ever commissioned her before this point, but other people had and always got what they paid for and in a pretty timely manner. When I first saw her species floating around I kind of fell in love with them and wanted one of my own and once she started to offer customs I jumped at the chance to get one. And the rest is pretty much in the messages. This has been going on since May of last year, and I've tried my best to be patient and understanding because I know life happens. I even opted for different kinds of art to make up for what I had paid for and never even received that. I actually just counted this as a loss after a year of waiting until she messaged me two weeks ago.

So here were are a year and seven months later I have nothing to show for the $150 I paid to her.

UPDATE 9/26/17:
Just wanted to give an update to this. I never received a refund or art. I contacted her a couple weeks ago and this was the response I got-
