i had been struggling a bit with the anxiety and stress of this whole situation, but my heart goes out to everyone who was affected T_T .
i didn't plan to make a bulletin talking about my own pending echeck from jodora/sheller, since i didn't want to take away from the people who were severely affected with hundreds of chargebacks..
i apologize for this being really jumbled. it is hard to keep track of all the messages since it went back and forth by replying to the same pm multiple times.
https://toyhou.se/~forums/5867.service-reviews/496206.psa-sheller-jodora-scammingchargebacks (this is also linked/in relation to my own situation)
please support any artist/creator that has been affected... T_T they need it more than anything
to preface, i am the user who had received the said design chuchy07 was charge backed for, this character has been in my ownership since feb 16
as you can see from this screenshot, the original price was $300 and i was accidentally charged $350. i had bought this character during my work shift, so I didn't pay much attention + i had assumed they had a pending commission for the design. I didn't say anything until I bought another character from them, to which I had finally noticed the ownership log and asked if the extra $50 was due to a pending commission.
here is my conversation, i apologize for the format change. it would happen during their replies back to me (there were also other replies to the same PM)
For more context, I had been commissioned by jodora/sheller in the past and I have had pleasant experiences with them. During this time they had an already paid $10 doodle chibi (now refunded)
When I had bought another design from sheller/jodora ( https://toyhou.se/25811226.marley ) , they had a come to me asking for a refund as well, considering the timing of their bulletin of their friend I didn't want to add any pressure or stress so I happily obliged to the refund. Their concern was that if I sent the refund through VGEN/paypal, it would not be fast enough to enter their account. And considering their perfect track record with me, I had no issue sending them the $10 along with the character design I was buying as it would then be agreed that they would send the payment along with the $50 they owed me (for a grand total of $60 USD).
THOUGH: the $10 would only be refunded formally through VGEN once they would let me know they are able to resend the $10 (as to not keep me waiting).
I end up refunding it on VGEN earlier than expected because I had a really odd feeling about it... and I really wanted my money back asap because I didn't want to think they were trying to scam me and run off. I plugged in my kofi link to hopefully push them to giving me what they owed (i don't like forcing people, as i was afraid that if i was hostile it would be less likely for me to receive my money back) ...especially since I saw how they were offering on many characters, so I assumed maybe they could use the money to repay me instead? T_T Seeing this reply really terrified me..
eventually they did send me the payment through kofi for a grand total of $65 USD (i was only owed $60, but i believed that the extra $5 was to apologize) but.. i did get an email about it being sent as an "echeck" which I had never seen before... which started to make me feel more concerned as i saw people saying it was a type of scam and the kofi listing is still as pending as well as in my paypal account... this has not hit my account yet. so i still am to receive what im owed.
i didn't think much of it until i started seeing all the chargebacks and psas going around, as well as being notified by my friends since i had been talking about being really stressed about this happening to me... i really just wanted to get my money back T_T hence my reasoning for opening commissions earlier to ease my own mind: https://toyhou.se/~bulletins/1741402.commissions-open-early
and well, to today i got this email about that echeck that is still pending to my account... which made me concern enough to actually make a bulletin about this. i don't do well in these kind of situations due to past experiences, but i have a lot on my plate right now and this hasn't been helping.
i had decided that if this echeck does land in my account i would refund it to avoid a possible chargeback from hitting... but i had seen mixed responses around the forums/bulletins so i'm really not sure what to do.
i had also planned on doing a chargeback for the chuchy07 design as well, to hopefully be able to send that $300 back to chuchy and be able to recuperate my own $50 from that T_T i really don't know what to do with all this... so if anyone has their own opinions and suggestions for what to do in this situation i am more than happy to hear.
edit: upon checking the invoice where i bought character...i hadn't disputed the payment yet so seeing this concerns me now T_T i will probably hold off to see what happens. chuchy07 design + my flipcher design transaction have this same title.. so ill wait to see what happens before i do anything rash.
ive been stressed having these things surrounding my new characters T_T so if there is anything.. im willing to help and listen
thank you for listening, and im sorry this is all jumbled up i really don't know how to organize this better. i just wanna put this out there until i receive my $60 that i'm owed.
