I was so, so hoping it wouldn’t have to come to this, but after an entire year of waiting and trying to be patient, I feel I have to make this official post.
Last January i inquired @burdwow about one of their $35 colored waist-up commissions [x]. After the second email with them sending the sketch, all contact came to a complete halt. I sent two more emails after that, along with multiple asks and fanmails on tumblr and a request for a refund. For months, there was nothing except for a few vague text posts that said she was getting to it [x] [x] It wasn’t until she was directly [called out] that they made a [text post]. She had not even attempted to try get in contact with any of the other people she had done this to.
And there were quite a few. [x] [x] [x] [x] That’s 7 people alone that have been screwed over like this. Not including a few people who have come forward anonymously. I’m unsure if the people here have gotten their refunds, but I know I sure haven’t lol.
So she told me to send her my email and asked, since she could not get paid asap, if I wanted to have half the money now and half of it later. I said no, trusting she’d give me my full refund asap when she could.
And so almost a month passed. Again. I FINALLY got a reply saying she had the money. This was on December 12th. A month later. I sent two asks and a fanmail just in case she didn’t get my reply. And I decided to wait until the year was over to make this post in hopes she might contact me.
At this point all I care about is that no one else gets scammed. I’d really like that money back but it’s too late at this point and I warn everyone to beware of commissioning this artist.
Time to boost this again.
