It's quite hard for me to do this but it leaves me no other choice.Who: Brandon Harris on FB / Ferocious Flames on FA ( www.furaffinity.net/user/feroc… )What/beware type: ignoring me and not paying for the finished productWhere: FB/FADetails:
Around a year ago I and Brandon Harris arranged to make a custom big plushie of his character as a commission. Before I start, I always ask for a minimum 50 $ payment part as a deposit for the materials cost to begin with. He have sent that. Depending on the budget of the commissioner, I always allow them to split payment in parts during the process of the commission, so it wouldn't be very hard at the end to pay a big amount in case they may have some difficulties. Thus, he kept saying he will pay something time to time but eventually never did. When I was done with the plushie, I calculated the total price and awaited for the payment (I never ship stuff if it's not paid yet). This is the plushie (which is still laying in my house):
He ignored me, and with the time passing by he kept commissioning some other artists while debt for me was still to be paid. After 3 months of waiting it seems he was blocked form the Facebook for some sort of stuff I don't really care, so it was kinda understandable, so I kept waiting for the payment again. Once probably another 3 months passed by, I wrote him again and he just blocked me, and I wasn't able to reach him, as he rarely uses Furaffinity (even tho I have wrote notes for him too on there).
(Necessary parts of the chat on FB are here as a proof for the previous text wall. Read from top to bottom as a chat):
So I contacted his friends and artists he had commissioned previously, and asked them to hand my message that if he fails to reply me and explain this situation, I will be forced to put out bewares on him. Finally the next day he wrote me a note on FA, proof is bellow (read from bottom to top, the very first message is from me about apologies back then when I just started the pattern of the plushie yet had to rush with studies. And back then I have made him a badge for that waiting as promised, but never showed him because obviously he wasn't paying me anything for the plushie):
He just explained that its hard with money for him, but it was not an excuse to ignore me all this time (since as long as I can communicate with the client and know his situations, I'm patient to await for payments). I waited for the payment part again as he said he will try to send something but never did for sure. So I just sent him final note to pay a specific part until 16th January or I will create bewares for sure because I was already tired of being ignored. He failed to do that, so this is the aim why I'm doing all this.
In addition, if this person will eventually refuse to pay at all for the plushie, I will be foced to sell it in an auction for anyone who will want it (including the mentioned badge too).
