DO NOT HOLD THINGS FOR THIS USER

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 7, 2016, 8:04 PM

Edit 6: They said they'll take all adopts off hold and make a public apology. Again, please do not harass this person.

Edit 5: They admitted to wanting to have all of the characters for themselves and is attempting to guilt trip me for posting this journal, read other comments below for more examples of them guilt tripping people
No by sugar-scales

Edit 4: please do not harass this person; just hide/ignore offers they make on your characters

Edit 3: Big red flag, this was brought to my attention:
Oh Dear by sugar-scales

Edit 2: due to the mass amounts of people commenting on this and having to deal with this, and getting ripped off, this is now officially a callout journal.

fonzie1997 Has requested for hundreds of adopts to be held for them and saying that they'll either pay at the end of august or the end of September with no down payments on anything. If asked for some sort of update or payment, or if you say you're cancelling the hold, they claim they "get paid every Saturday/sunday," and still will not pay after that.

This in turn has messed up multiple auctions for multiple people, including myself, a friend of mine, and many others. I've removed the holds for this person as there is no excuse as to why they're holding not only hundreds of adopts, but YCHs as well. They owe well over $1000 in adopts and this is ludicrous to be able to pay off all at once, especially if it's in points (as they intend to pay in; $1000 is 100,000 :points: distributed to multiple different people, and its well over $1000 at this point)

Edit: there's almost a whole new page full of adopts they'd like to be held less than 24 hours after I posted this journal

They're currently holding over $700 in adopts

and they said they'll be able to pay at the end of august
this seemed really suspicious to me as I'm currently "holding" $88 in adopts for them
Hahahahahahaa by sugar-scales

Star's holding $50 in adopts till the END OF SEPTEMBER

after investigating I've seen that they're holding HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS in adopts, they even have a whole folder full of things they need to "pay for"
Hahahah2 by sugar-scales

bottom line is, if someone's gonna ask you to hold something for nearly a month with no down payment at all, do not accept the hold. That's a ridiculous amount of time for someone to pay such a small amount of money like 50 points.

Unless they're getting a wicked paycheck or somehow plan to win the lottery,  I doubt they're gonna be able to afford the possible $1000 they're currently holding.



I'm not saying they're %100 scamming, I'm just saying it's probably not a good idea to hold something for this person due to the mass amount of adopts they're asking people to hold and it very well could be a scam.

I'd warn other people too.

It might have very well been a mistake! Sometimes I make holds and forget about them but then offer free art for my mistake, maybe instead of calling them out and making them probably really embarrassed we could HELP them with their mistake! People deserve second chances. It's not you people have EVER made a mistake like this or anything else and people saying "this user makes me pissed off" is making ME pissed off, so instead of being an ass, offer to help them. Or maybe, even offer to buy an adopt for them.

You found this journal over a month too late. This journal went out to all of the people WHO LOST MONEY over this. You don't seem to understand; they held THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS in adopts. The people who were kindly holding the adopts needed money for food, rent, ect. I HAD to let them know before they either went hungry or couldn't pay their bills. 
And you calling me an ass? What the fuck is your problem? I told them multiple times that I would give them a second chance after they kept delaying payments and they still refused. Why the hell would I buy an adopt from them when they didn't deserve it? It's not OUR job to buy things for people who want to be selfish and claim a bunch of adopts for themselves. They ruined auctions, and almost ruined people's lives. How am I THE ASS? You need to take a fuckin step back.

i also said multiple times throughout the journal not to harass them. Even at the top of the journal I said that they apologized and took all of the adopts off hold, then crossed out the rest of the journal. I left it up so that people can understand what happened and why people had to re-auction things.
so no, I'm not the "ass" here.

Had the same issue for a really long time, they were frequently asking for holds on adopts and never replying/paying.
Why don't people learn? If you don't have the points/cash, don't bid/buy, simple as that!

Now I know this isn't adopt related, but they did the same thing in ARPGs (at least PKMNation to my knowledge) and eventually got banned for it.

I dont think any one of said it was funny, Kam made a note saying that ur probably not 100% scamming. 
People make a living out of these adopts,  their source of income is from the people who like to buy their
adopts they've spent hours sitting down behind a computer. You wanted the characters for yourself you say?
Well damn, I've seen some adopts I wanted 
to claim too. But isn't that kinda selfish? You have to let go some of these adopts go, it's hard to see a
design u really want being sold. Try bidding on ones that u can afford.

Im sorry that people are bashing on you and calling you a scammer, im sure you're not and you
just made some stupid decisions. Back off from the adopts that ur holding and post a journal apologizing to everyone 
please. I'm sure everyone deserves an explanation.

Please try not to make anymore false promises.

If you had actually intended to pay for them you wouldn't have attempted to purchase more. People aren't able to pay rent or buy food because of what you did, and that's a serious matter. "I just wanted all the characters for myself" just makes it sounds like you wanted the characters so no one else could claim them, which is extremely selfish to both the seller and the other potential customers out there.  Now unfortunately for you you don't have many people holding the adopts for you anymore, and everyone in the adopt community is aware of what you're doing. If I were you I'd make a public apology and cancel all of your holds.

I've also been made aware of your guilt tripping and that's not going to work on me or other people. Too many people have experienced bad things with you and in result you're now someone people will avoid in the adopt community.

Thanks for this - they had one of my mine on hold, only 100 points so I'm not too upset, but seeing them trying to scam (?) this amount of people, and liking the journal as if it's a joke... that's just sickening.

But when I checked through their activity, I saw they actual pay for a lot of adopts/commission without putting them on hold, which means they do have money. And there were some adopts which they did pay after putting them on hold for a few days as well. So I'm a bit confused and have no idea what's happening here.

:iconsugar-scales:
sugar-scales Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, but looking at the dates of when they actually DID pay shows that they haven't done this for quite some time; it seemed to have been a hit or miss basis but at this point there is no way they could possibly pay for all of that given all the red flags all of us have seen. And judging by all the comments I've gotten and mentions I have from people tagging this journal on adopts (43 of them after I just deleted them a few hours ago) that they have attempted to purchase, there are FAR too many people who haven't received payment by the time they said they were going to. People have lost money for food and rent because of this person and that drew the line for me.

Although they arent expensive, they have a few things on hold from me as well ;;
A 1000pt YCH and two 300pt characters, they commented claiming they paid for one of the characters and would like another but no payment came through for me so I assumed they were paying for them all together u.u
