Text: WHO: Georgina Layne (HypeSoda/ GrumpyBatFursuits)

WHERE: Facebook
FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/Grumpy-Bat-Fursuits-871621326237816/?ref=br_rs
FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/HypeSoda/

REASON: Scam, lies, ignoring messages (and some behavior)

WHAT: Trade with badges of their characters for their feetpaws (my art for their paws)

WHEN: First started trade 2/23/16, continued throughout the year

EXPLAIN: I was to trade with Georgina some badges I have drawn of their characters, in exchange for their feet paws.
There have been multiple accounts of them telling me they would ship it without actually doing so. I would have to constantly ask for updates before they would tell me that they haven't even mailed it.

I had given them 2 deadlines (Anthrocon and Christmas), both of which were missed.
It has been a year now, still no feet or update on the situation.
(Later screenshots, like the Christmas deadline, I no longer have due to my first account being disabled, without facebook allowing me to gain it back.)

At one point, I had made an advice post on my account (not a beware) shown only to facebook friends asking for their intake of what I should do. A friend of mine also had a trade with Georgina, and canceled it once they heard of my situation.
Georgina then responded in a bit of an outburst.

-Proof of Georgina posting online, instead of responding to my messages
-Extra screens showing their approval of my side of the trade and proof that I sent it is here
Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

Jesus. Beware well warranted. I'm sorry, but they can't even use the excuse of "Oh I'm stressed and busy and EVERYTHING has happened all at once IRL" because, yes, that can happen and it CAN delay projects, but... they literally just have to package up and send the thing they've already made! They don't even have to make anything! They just have to find a box (if you don't have one, BUY one! Or go to your local supermarket and ask for one of their boxes?! It ISN'T that hard, good lord), put your address on it and send it.

There is being patient and understanding towards an artist who's having a rough time, and there's someone who's clearly taking advantage, which I definitely think they are.

Their outburst at you is horrible. They apologize in a really unconvincing way - "sorryyy" followed with a bunch of excuses in caps is ridiculous. I'm sorry you had to put the time into making them badges (that they've had an entire year to enjoy while not making a trip to the post office to fulfill their half. Eesh.)
