> WHO: Victoria10717, Vixxens, or her official business FurfancyCostumes
> WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/victoria10717/, http://www.furaffinity.net/user/furfancycostumes, and http://www.furaffinity.net/user/vixxens/. More proof can be found on her instagram https://www.instagram.com/_victoria10717_/. Her business sites are http://furfancy.webstarts.com/ and http://www.furfancycostumes.com/
> WHAT: Stretchy handband ears
> WHEN: The journal where I asked for ears I cannot access but payment was recieved by her on January 30th of 2015. I spoke to her in person at AC about them. then there were a few notes exchanged on fa about the status of my commission.
> EXPLAIN: In February of 2015 I had paid Victoria for a hand made item (paypal transaction https://imgur.com/a/qAJnV
> ). A set of headband ears which I was told would be finished by July at Anthrocon. The convention came and went and I still did not receive my item (asking if they will be ready https://imgur.com/a/oYsYu. I was placed on her public Que for completion along with others. Earlier this year I was removed from the list without notification and I myself had to reach out to her. The reason I got was as follows: "ive been trying to get the extra cash to actually refund you for them since its been a crazy amount of time :(" I was also informed she wanted to focus solely on large scale projects (Trello removal? https://imgur.com/a/peEsU) (Trello response https://imgur.com/a/yd4Df). I also know between all of this she had moved several times and was having issues so I was patient and understanding. Since all of this she has bought quite a bit of house items, a large 3-d printer, and a large 22hd cintiq drawing tablet for herself within the past two months so I do not understand why I have not received my refund from her. She is using both the 3-d printer and the tablet to take on many commissions and pre-orders and has been very active online in doing so. On the 24th I issued a two week warning on an artist beware, believing this was more then enough time to rectify the issue of either my refund or the product. She has read these messages but has not responded since (Follow up https://imgur.com/a/mX8Kr) (following up again https://imgur.com/a/GdTjK) (Ultimatium issued https://imgur.com/a/NgsPk). Now I understand should not have waited this long for such a small product but with her moving a lot I thought it was the right thing to do. I would get paypal involved but it is now going on almost 3 years of waiting for ear headbands. She also claims she doesn't take small parts orders but her trello and her pages show otherwise.

Have you tried leaving shouts? They'll be public, so you'll know if shes deleting them. It's been so long that I have no idea if theres anything you can do but keep asking for your refund at this point and hope you get it.

Responses have been made, she says she has no money and that no one is buying her art or bases to be able to refund me. Leaving shouts at this point wouldn't really help my case at all. She is opening for more part slots and more art but at this time she still claims she doesn't have enough to refund me.

She's making head base slots available and in each post at least one person has claimed a slot so far. So hopefully some of that will go towards refunding you.

She is also apparently raising money to go to Maine for her baby shower so that might be where that money is going. She is expecting her baby in December. However each headband is over $100 which would be more then enough for my refund. I don't think I will be seeing a refund very soon.

By any chance did you pay with a credit card? I HAVE heard of people going back way further than PPs timeslots for refunds through their CC, but the timeframe depends on the company.

Honestly, shes making money, her first priority should be your refund, not a trip or baby shower.

She also shouldn't need to go anywhere far for that baby shower, since it's her's, they all should be coming to her, right?

Regardless of where, I was issued my refund this afternoon and have updated the post with proof of such. I just hope this is a learning experience and doesn't happen again so her business can do well and others don't have to go through similar issues.
Oct. 21st, 2017 07:11 am (UTC)
I've gone ahead and marked your post as resolved.

Unfortunately it was through paypal with a balance. I am unable to charge back due to time constraints. I should not have waited and did a charge back several months after I received no updates. This is highly unfortunate but I guess I live and learn.
