WHO: LeeLee Moreau, aka LeeLee
WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net
WHAT: I ordered a 29 dollar physical badge back in July. It was supposed to be Robot Themed with light up LED eyes.

A confirmation of my order being received can be seen here:

WHEN: The payment was made on July 26th, 2013, and was confirmed received by the artist on August 8th, 2013.

PROOF: After waiting several months of waiting, I noticed that she was finally beginning to deliver badges, but only to those attending a con she was going to: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/11866774/

Afterwards, she opens up a preorder queue for yet MORE badges: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/11874360/
A bit confused, I decided to e-mail her; I had PMed her on the website prior, but noticed afterwards that she preferred e-mail correspondence.

I received no response.
Five days later, I threatened action with a potential Artist Beware post, only then was I paid any attention:

Since then, she had then provided the DIGITAL art of my PHYSICAL badge (which I stated I no longer wanted) as well as a “free” icon, and one more piece of “gift” art, instead of issuing me my refund.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/e3xzpgo789zqks1/Not%20a%20Refund.png

https://www.dropbox.com/s/b8lbu3ilhp55mew/Bullshit%201.png
She states in the above image that she warns potential buyers about waiting to pay until after her work is completed, to avoid situations like my current one. Note she did not provide me with any document or post stating such a policy, rather, she instead stated that it was “mentioned in some/most of her journals.” If such a policy were in play, I think it’d only be fair for her to have refunded my money when I made my initial purchase, or to at least warn me when she accepted my order so I’d have known before paying. She also mentions that she “did not have a public queue” when many of her journals in fact HAVE queues for her current orders (I believe she since edited one of her four month old journals and has marked my order as “Paid and SHIPPPED” when I have received no such thing; making the edit rather blatant.)

I’ve also been given sob story after sob story about “all of her money being spent on rent” and that she’s not “buying any computers.” I don’t believe I ever accused her of blowing money on a new PC; just not refunding my own money.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/eybo40nb78cwge4/Final%20Offer.png
As of now, I have asked for my refund yet again; this time however, with a bit of leeway. Three payments of ten dollars split up over three weeks. I think I am being more than generous, but I have not received any further correspondence since sending this e-mail.

EXPLAIN:
I am used to waiting for commissions for a good deal of time, but I believe asking for a simple WIP after all of this time, even if it’s just a sketch, is common courtesy to a consumer. LeeLee not only flat out ignored my first, kind request, but did not message me again, since the 11th mind you, with any update on the refund I believe I am more than entitled to, until I threatened her with a potential Artist Beware notice. Not only was my initial desire for a refund refused with the argument of “I already have the art done” but I am given the excuse that I need to wait an additional three months for shipping of “supplies” from China? And after that, sob stories about how she cannot afford to pay a thirty dollar refund. Case in point, I paid for a badge I did not ever end up receiving, and all I want at this point is my money back.

UPDATE 11/19/13:
It has been three days since LeeLee has last messaged me. As of today, I have made her aware of this A_B notice against her. I am still giving her the opportunity to pay my refund in installments but to no avail as of yet. https://www.dropbox.com/s/lvt75mohxbct3wa/3%20Days%20Pt%201.png

LeeLee is still very much active on FA as well. I am being flat out ignored: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3i5fif51uwh5t65/3%20days%20Pt%202.png

UPDATE 11/19/13:
My refund has been issued; everything has been resolved.

WHAT: Digital Couple Badge Commission

WHEN: I commissioned/paid for the item in September 2011 on paypal.

PROOF: Well I commissioned her the badges and she said she would have them before FurFright. I was not going to the con so I gave her my address to ship them to. She told me they were finished and all was good. But this is all she put on FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6777753/

These were just the line art. When I asked for progress she ignored me. FINALLY she contacted me via email when I approached her in irritated fashion.

http://tinypic.com/r/3538rc5/5

She offered me and gave me some icons as makeup art. I thanked her, but she seemed to think it was a replacement for the commission. WHICH IT WAS NOT.

That was the last time I heard from her until today.

http://tinypic.com/r/28qwwtd/5

not sure what that even means. I am STILL waiting on my art.

This was originally denied to A_B because the artist gave me extra art when I did not ask for it. I feel this should be posted here because Leelee has made me wait for a year w/o any responses to my e-mails or notes when she disappeared on FA, also the fact that when I DID get in contact w/ her I had to ask MORE THAN ONCE for a responce... At this point I STILL do not have my half of a trade and am re-submitting this..



Who: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/LeeLee/ [livejournal.com profile] leeleemoreau


Where: FA / LJ


What: Digital Art trade


When: Well over a year ago. http://pics.livejournal.com/ryunwoofie/pic/0000c5x8 (My half started on May 30, 2010)

Proof: Long ago when I was active on a collection community I was inquired by Leelee about doing a digital trade. Unfortunately that thread where we worked out the details has been LONG lost. We agreed, passed info between us via LJ PM's but those have been purged as well a loooong time ago. Before I realized NOT to delete information until a transaction is complete. I do admit I dropped the ball for deleting those.

My half was completed a long time ago, well before I even saw a sketch of hers. I do admit I took a while before I got to it, but I decided to hold off on sending it to her till I saw some form of her half. She posted it http://www.furaffinity.net/view/4027253, and for the longest time that was the last that I heard from her. She seemed to have fallen off the face of the internet for a while, and I can admit I honestly forgot until I randomly posted on the submission. I've also sent e-mails before that were never answered. I also didn't keep up w/ her journals on FA either. My fault again I suppose..

Finally getting some contact from her we have talked it out, apparently her computer was broken and sent off or something, to where she didn't have the file on hand. So she claimed she was going to finish it when it's returned. So I'm waiting on her to color it I guess. She did however draw me a lovely little extra for my wait. (Which I will admit I flipped out a bit because I thought she was trying to give this to me instead of our agreed trade) But I still mark this as beware for her random absence and lack of communication and ignoring when inquiring about said trade.

I apologize for the lack of initial communication between us. I just hope the facts given are enough.


Update: I have just asked if she would just color the smaller image she posted on FA because I am at this point tired of waiting. She’s cranking out art right now so I don’t see why she can’t color it too. Even if she does color it I stil think this beware is valid enough to be posted.


Update2: After she decided to ignore my question on the submission I noticed her faving and comminting elseware. She ignored me again. So I decided to wait till morning and note her.

My note to Leelee and her response.

http://pics.livejournal.com/ryunwoofie/pic/0000fhs0

Thanks for being mature Leelee, once again appreciated.. Still no straight answer if she's gonna do it or not.

Update3: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6547634/

I still don't understand why she keeps mentioning the 'make up' art as if I should have accsepted that instead of what we agreed on.  Or maybe I'm just missunderstanding her or something... IDK

Update4: Talked it out w/ Leelee and she thuroughly aplogized. The 'make up' art was also a missunderstanding on my part. I guess I made it unclear about that being a replacement. Everything is cool and there is no hard feelings.

Anyway this is resolved.

I never thought I would need to post here, but such is life.

Furaffinity user LeeLee is ripping off other artists' work, including mine, and then trying to to sell it on her FA account. More under the cut + images... )

Ok Leelee has issued a formal apology to everyone: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5976212/ ALSO Leelee sent me this note and asked me to post it so everyone could see. Yes her apology seems sincere to me so I think it's safe to say she's learned a legit lesson here.

I commissioned her at FurFright 2009 for a fattie. I've been waiting since then and a couple weeks to a month ago, finally emailed her about a refund. She told me she would refund me as soon as she got the money to. Ok fine. I waited 2 more weeks and emailed her again. Ignored. Posted a comment on her FA page about it. Ignored. Then finally commented on a journal of hers telling her she likes to dodge emails and notes. She then decided to tell me that she emailed me back. I told her that I only got that one email from her and nothing else. I haven't heard from her since. I even gave her my paypal address to send the money back to. Just a warning to people wanting to commission her. You may never get it, or never get a refund.


EDIT
She refunded me, without me having to email her again.

Ok, So it has been Almost a year now Since i have commissioned Leelee At AC last year. It was a 40$ Unf Badge. As you can see in the Image below,

I am still listed as "PLANNING"

I have tried every Method of contact She gives out to the public, and have never gotten a response from her not even a, i'm busy and working on other things, Or i'm not doing it. Nothing!

As far as my Knowledge goes She has Not done a single commission from the AC con of 2009. And she Took MORE this year.

So for all the ones that got commissions From her i suggest Pressuring Her ether to refund or complete it or it ll never be done.

Hey, everyone. Long time being aware of the community, first time posting. Anyway, here we go.

A long and somewhat interesting story... (p.s. possibly nsfw pics) )

P.S. the ENTIRE TIME this is going on she's uploading commissions and art for other people. Constantly. Taking new ones, completing some... this is ridiculous.
[identity profile] hobokitten.livejournal.com

About 2 years ago, I commissioned a woodburned badge from LeeLee of FA [http://www.furaffinity.net/user/leelee/] when I saw this post: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/1159042/ . Unfortunately, I can not be more precise on date as FA does not give exact dates. I sent payment for a Toony badge on May 17th, the payment was 7$. At first, communication was good. I was a bit slow on sending a reference and payment due to IRL issues, but it was going fine.

I first asked for progress on Aug. 25th 2008. There was no answer. So I waited a bit, and noted again on Oct. 7th 2008 and got a response. She had lost my Ref. Which wasn't really a big deal, so I sent it over again. Around Oct. 28th 2008, she posted a link to a website where there was a que, I wasn't on there so I sent a note. This was fixed and she said she was adding a bonus for making me wait. So I waited, and on Feb. 13th I noted her to inform her I moved. Due to IRL issues I had to move back to the previous house, and I informed her of this on Feb. 26th 2009, I made sure she had not sent out the badge yet of course. In March 2009, where I live was annexed into Fort Worth, so we were no longer unincorporated Tarrant. This mean my address had to change a bit, just the house numbers, and the old ones would still carry on for a few months. So on March 15th 2009, I informed LeeLee of this, there was no response.

I waited once again, and twiddled my thumbs. I didn't want to bother her to much, and I had a baby in May of 2009, so I hadn't thought to much of it until my husband brought it up. On 9/11/09 I sent her an Email, as she had specified not to send her notes due to them getting confused. I asked if there had been any progress. I had seen her take and finish many other commissions, but I never really saw any update on mine. I told her if I hadn't heard back from her by Oct. 10th, I would be posting to Artists_Beware. Below are the Emails exchanged, Email addresses blocked out of course.

http://i298.photobucket.com/albums/mm261/FreakBeasts/Storage/WoodburnedemailTo7.png

 

After that I waited a bit. I went to the post office and checked for any packages for both Pre-annexed and After-annexed addresses, as well as went with one of the people we were living with previously to see if any packages had been sent to their Address, but not delivered. The post office had nothing for me at all. So on Dec. 16th I sent a progress check, simply replying to the previous Email she had sent me.:

http://i298.photobucket.com/albums/mm261/FreakBeasts/Storage/FinalEmail.png

 

There has still been no answer. I have checked both my Email and Junk folders every day, and I've checked at the post office when ever we are having other things delivered. All in all, I'm just giving up on ever seeing the badge.

So if you commission Leelee, there is a chance you may not get your commission. I don't know if she's sent other badges out or not, this was just my experience.

 

I can post screenshots of the notes if needed as well.

EDIT:
LeeLee has offered to do something else, but I declined for the simple fact that I'd rather move on. I do hope there is a day when this post is invalid, and I wish her best of luck on future projects :)
I am finished with this and hold no ill-will on her.
