I really need help..

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 12, 2014, 10:26 PM
So pretty much everyone knows of the Pixlett  scams... So, the compete chargeback finally hit me and I am out a good chunk of money. What I took as a "financial savior" has pretty much devoured through my bank account.

Now, its not as bad as witchpaws or Kitsurie  (;; im sorry my loves I wish I could help  you guys out cause holy moly)

For some people's 215 dollars (the complete amount taken from me) is a tough blow but, not a killer. 

For my family- It sorta is.
We live in my grandma's house and care for it for her while she is in arizona being polyamorous . My mom live paycheck to paycheck. Generally before we are paid again, my mom and I have about 20 bucks between us. That is to our name. In all of our pockets and both of our bank accounts.

We have our lives carefully planned out. and as many of you know, I work my ass off to help support us the best I can. I have a job that gives me bad work anxiety. And generally when I am home I am working to get pictures done owed art or stress relief...  

anyway. I had refunded the money back to pixlette except for what I had actually worked on. I was saving that other money thinking a smaller amount would go unnoticed. Wrrooong. So now I am out money that I NEED.

I hate begging guys. But I REALLY am in a deep hole. 

The money they took from me that I didnt refund I was going to use to pay to apply for the college I am going to next (I have to apply soon or I will have to wait another semester to get in) and for books for this semester.

There are other things I need the cash for (generally) so OTL again, I hate begging but if you guys could help me out. If I could get 50 people to even donate A DOLLAR I could apply to college. 

;; I dont know how I could make any of this up, but I really really need help. I am sorry I am begging, but you have to know I wouldnt unless I REALLY needed it.

Hello! I made a signal boost about people needing help due to the scammer Pixlett a few months ago: PAYPAL SCAMMER WARNING (PIXLETT)
I hope they got their Paypal shut down!

I was wondering if you were still in need of donations and how much you need if so, so I can update the journal and post it again. Have you gotten the money you needed yet?

Don't take out a loan. Loan companies make it hard to pay off your loan.

Wait... So it's like you paying Pixlett money so you can make her some art?? I'm sorry, I'm trying to get this whole thing clear because I know next to nothing about credit cards, Pay Pal, chargebacks and what not... Can someone explain this briefly to me? Whatever it is, it seems terrible! :( (Sad)

Basically pixlett payed us to make her some art (or to buy adopts) and a few months later she filed a charge back. WHich means she got her money back.

That's a horrible thing to do to an artist who worked so hard to get her commission done... Rage

Basically, Pixlett payed some people for commissions or adoptables or some other reason and after the work was complete, she issued a chargeback on the artist. This basically means the money was taken back out of their account and given back to Pixlett by the credit cared company by saying it was incomplete, and because it's digital art the artists aren't protected by paypal.

Hi there! I'm currently running a little event to try and gather money for people affected by Pixlett. The info is over here; fav.me/d7v1mvs
I want to ask other user's permission before I go adding them to the group, but I'm hoping to spread the results amongst those involved. If you'd like to be involved please just let me know! I'm really sorry you've been affected by this, and I know it isn't too much, but I want to help even if it's only a little.

How much money do you need to be refunded in order to get into college? I know you were scammed around 200, so if you were given 200, would you be good to pay off tuition?

:iconfeniick:
Feniick Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I am good on tuition due to financial aid, i just needed the 50 to apply to my next college (cause I am at a 2 yr currently then transfering for my next two years)
;v; and I have gotten enough back to pay for that and books so yay
