If you take commissions or make adopts please do not let the users Pixlett or ToxicMutagen buy from you. They will pay after a few days, BUT they will issue a credit card chargeback on the purchase. (They "share" a Paypal name/email, so I am suspicious that it is just the same person who moved accounts)




I'm now in the negatives in Paypal due to the chargebacks, and sadly Paypal does NOT cover digital goods (including art) so I won't be getting this money back.
They are doing this to other users/my dA friends as well.
Here's just 3 of the chargebacks they sent me to show as proof. (They have spent thousands on my art, their paypal email is jacobredarcanine@gmail.com)
Screenshot (190) by witchpaws


As you can see, I tried to provide evidence for one of them (still have many to go through)



Anyways, as this is a clear breach of my Terms of Service, I'm reclaiming ALL of their Sushi Dogs + an adopt that they purchased made by myself and Kawiku.

So yeah, please be safe guys. Being a digital artist is risky business, and it's sad that people go so low as to do things like this to hardworking people. And it's even more unfortunate that Paypal does not recognize our jobs as eligible for protection /:

UPDATE: I have contacted Paypal customer support over the phone. I have written up a large statement explaining the situation, as well as providing screenshots proving the purchase.
The guy on the other end told me that this was enough information to bring forth the case to Pixlett's credit card company.
He said that showing that I sent the product directly to Pixlett via Notes will hopefully show that they have already received the product, and therefore the Chargeback is invalid.
BUT THERE IS NO GUARANTEES -- crossing my fingers!


IF YOU HAVE BEEN SCAMMED BY PIXLETT, PLEASE. CALL. PAYPAL CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND SHOW THEM EVIDENCE
The more we bring this user to notice, the better our chances of getting our money back!

**Attention Marble Hornets Fans**

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 29, 2014, 1:26 PM


Hoody Journal Doll by UmmuVonNadiaMasky Journal Doll by Ruinsenior
So, I've seen this whole thing starting over on Tumblr
where the fans of Marble Hornets had been talking about 
having a symbol, or some way of figuring out who's in the MH fandom. 
I saw a lot of different ideas, and found one I really really liked, and thought
that we should establish it as an official thing.

What I think would be perfect for us would be to hat we're going to
put our hands together like you were looking for a good shot fora picture like Alex did in entry 84.
 

Jay from Marble Hornets by LowRendMarbleHornets fans by LunarEclipseKid


So, spread the word on this idea!! We need to get this
around so other fans can see this and start doing this so we
can find one and another and make new friends with other MH fans!!
You're welcome to make your own journal with this info, well I encourage it!!
Tell your friends and other people that you know that are fans of the series~!!

EDIT--I forgot to say, if you post picture of it, drawing or photography 
you're welcome to send me the link, and I shall post up there with the rest of the ones I already have up!! <3

Adoptables - Terms of Service

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 30, 2014, 5:27 PM


By purchasing an adoptable, including closed species from me, such as Nekoi, you automatically agree to the following conditions. Please read this entirely and carefully. I will deny your request if I see you didn’t read this. If there are any questions or concerns, send me a private note over DeviantArt.

Blatantly breaking my Terms of Service will result in blacklisting from my closed species and banned from ever purchasing from me again. This includes, but is not limited to;

  • Failing to pay me for an adoptable in either an auction or a trade/sale.
  • Attempting to scam by selling/trading an adoptable from my species that you do not own.
  • Filling a chargeback. The buyer is then forbidden from using the adoptable, and further use will be considered as a violation.

I have the right to repossess/redistribute ownership over an adoptable at any time if you blatantly break my Terms of Service.

By buying an adoptable, you’re purchasing a partial right to a design. I have the rights to repost and use the design and its original artwork again for promoting myself and my artwork. I will not reuse/resell the design again for personal and commercial projects.

Once the purchase is completed and you officially have ownership of a particular adoptable, you are allowed to;

  • Give the adoptable a name, gender, story, etc.
  • Upload the adoptable to your deviantART gallery or another website, giving credits.
  • Co-own the adoptable.
  • Gift, trade or sell the adoptable.

Small alterations to the design, such as minor change in color, markings, etc, are permitted. But I always recommend checking with me first. Larger or more noticeable alternations need to be discussed with me over notes. Adding rarer features onto a closed species adoptable that you did not pay for is absolutely prohibited.


Payment/Refund

All payments made through Paypal should be in USD.

Payment is required within three days of your request being accepted; failure to do so will result in your request for ownership of that particular adoptable to be dropped.
Let me know if you need more time.

No refund will be given once the purchase is completed. You however have the right to resell/trade the adoptable.
