Timeline of the Financhu Crisis (2017)
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- 4th - Chris whines about having "head of household worries", like the bills and debt; however, instead of Adulting and applying for a job, he begs to have $500 a month.
- 13th - Over three weeks after the original lawn tractor ad was taken down from Craigslist due to a ween, Chris finally realized what happened and re-posted it, still asking for $595. In the meantime, he had bought over $100 worth of Pokémon and Skylanders toys and had made videos of himself playing with them.
- 16th - Chris uploads A browsing around an ol' playground, in which he begs for money before showing footage of himself walking around a playground.
- 17th - One day after begging for handouts of $10 per person, Chris plays a newly-purchased video game level for Lego Dimensions, The Lego Batman Movie Story Pack, which had been released on 10 February with a cost between $35-$50.
- 1st - Chris offers parts of Bob's stamp collection for sale.
- 2nd - Chris spends $50.25 on toys after making $68 (minus the cost of shipping) from selling his father's stamps.
- 3rd - Chris lists his personal stamp album for $1,000.
- 7th - Chris buys Lego World for the PS4 on its release date for $30, erasing the last of the profit he had made from selling stamps, even though he had claimed to need the money for paying bills.
- 13th - He spends another $9 on Transformers.
- 19th - Chris begs on Facebook for people to buy more stamps, saying "My mother and I can Really do with the money". At that point, he had made $85 in sales then quickly spent $90 on toys.
- 19th - White knights spring into action and purchase seven stamps, totaling $41.50. Five were bought by a single person (at $34) and the rest ($7.50) by two others.
- 19th - Chris lies about wasting stamp money on toys, claiming in Facebook's comments section that he "did NOT buy any lego sets" and that the money went towards "our debtor payments" instead.
- 4th - Barb's bank account is over $800 in the red after making two payments to Seterus, Inc, a loan servicing company - likely a result of failing to juggle both a past-due account and the autopay feature.
- 5th - Chris throws a tantrum at his Facebook friends after they suggest he get a job and begs for sales on his "high priced" stamp covers.
- 6th - Chris tweets to Cole Smithey, asking for financial help.
- 7th - Chris lists the Sonic Totem on eBay for $1,500. It sold within 4 hours. It is also discovered that the value of 14 Branchland Court has decreased by $3,248 in the past 30 days, according to Zillow.com.
- 7th - One hour after the Totem sale, Chris buys a $400 necklace for Barb, to replace one she pawned in November 2016. During the next three days, he orders $750 worth of Skylanders avatar products for his raffle prizes.
- 10th - Chris implores people to buy his $1,000 stamp album, because he had already spent the money from selling the totem. He also states he will mail it later in the week.
- 14th - Barb begs, claiming she needs money to pay an overdue power bill, while wearing the $400 necklace Chris had bought her a week before. Six hours later, Chris records a 23-minute video of him playing with expensive toys. He also explains that he had used part of the Totem sale money to service his credit card debt.
- 17th - In a sign of desperation, Chris slashes the price on his stamp album by half, to $500, and begs people to buy it.
- 18th - Chris begs to Cole for the second time this month.
- 19th - Chris's Paypal account is in the red by over $1,450, because he had failed to ship the Sonic Totem; as a result, the buyer filed a dispute and eBay or Paypal placed a temporary hold on the $1,500, pulling it from Chris's account.
He lists six Sonichu drawings, from 2014, at $2,000 for the lot.
Then, he digs through 10 to 20 bags of wet, moldy clothes, left over from the Destruction Of Chris's House three years before, and finds The Classic shirt. He lists it on eBay for $12,000 (or a Buy It Now price of $20,000).
Later, he records Live Game Stream - C-Log 04192017 - The Shirt to promote the listing.
- 20th - Barb bails herself and Chris out of imminent financial ruin by borrowing from their life insurance, repeating a move she pulled in 2014. This time, she uses the cash to fix the $800 deficit on her bank account, pay for Chris to ship the Sonic Totem to its buyer, and buy groceries.
- 21st - The Sonic Totem buyer receives it in the mail and leaves positive feedback, saying, "The item arrived safely". Since the dispute was resolved, the sale money was then released to Chris, putting his Paypal back in the black.
- 22nd - The auction for the Classic Shirt concludes, bid to $25,100.
- 27th - Chris asks people to buy his stamp album for $500, since his bank account is still in the red. He also mentions that the Classic Shirt buyer had not paid him $25,100 for it yet, and he would give her until the next day to begin paying.
- 30th - The raffle concludes. Chris had revenue of $165.76, but spent $790 on prizes and is obligated to spend $90 more, leaving him with a negative profit of $714.24.
- 5th - On eBay, Chris halves the prices on two listings: his stamp album (again), to $250; and a collection of Sonichu drawings from 2014, to $1,000. He begs people to buy on Facebook.
- 5th - In a jaw-dropping display of hypocrisy, Chris mocks Cole Smithey on Twitter for requesting donations on Patreon.
- 5th - Chris claims his bank account is in the red for the second time in a week due to the auto-pay for one of his bills, echoing the exact problem Barb claimed in the previous month. Chris's Monthly Tugboat had deposited $1,300 to him two days beforehand.
He also realizes that The Classic bidder won't be paying for it.
- 8th - Over the course of a week, Chris had spent $90 on six new PS4 games, even though he had said his bank account was in the red. PSN allows Paypal for purchases, so Chris was either lying or being financially irresponsible by using his Paypal to fund the purchases instead of transferring the money to his bank.
- 8th - After 561 days since the last update to the Sonichu comic, which he had been paid over $1,000 to do, Chris resumes work on it. He requests donations and pledges to his Patreon for his effort. A day later, he had gotten zero new pledges.
- 10th - Chris again halves the price on the Sonichu drawings, to $500, and begs for a sale, stating, "my mom and I could do with some more money, please".
- 11th - Chris links to his new Paypal.me account and begs for financial help.
- 11th - Barb is allowing her bank account to be in the red after a mortgage payment. Less than a week after mocking Cole for not reconciling with Barb, Chris begs him for money, asking for $1,000.
- 14th - Another livestream of Chris drawing Sonichu comic pages is recorded, clocking in at 1 hour and 38 minutes of footage. Chris begs for $10 donations or pledges to Patreon in the video description.
- 15th - Chris records himself using Photoshop for an hour and a half. He begs for his audience to "PLEASE DONATE BIG NOW!" It should be noted that he filmed himself surrounded by expensive electronics, such as the PS4 camera and laptop (possibly a newly-acquired one, as it had not been mentioned by Chris before).
- 16th - Chris tries to beg from Cole again, still asking for $1,000.
- 17th - The Chandlers pay the first half of the 2017 property tax for 14 Branchland Court, costing them $606.83.
- 19th - After announcing that Sonichu 11 pages will be ready in a few days, Chris begs for handouts. Later that day, he discovers that his cat, Sorbet, had been seriously injured and takes him to a vet.
- 24th - Chris begs for handouts on video, claiming to need money for food and mentioning that he was charged $160 for Sorbet's vet bill. He demands for donations to be at least a dollar and suggests a $10 minimum. An hour later, he uploads another video, angered at having received a donation of less than a dollar. In the second video, Barb appears and joins in the begging, requesting money for meal replacement shakes.
- 25th - Chris links to the first of the previous day's videos on Facebook and begs again. He also deletes the second video.
- 16th - Barb begs for food money, while wearing both a $400 gold necklace and a pearl necklace. Shortly after, Chris posts an in-progress Sonichu page to Patreon and begs on that platform for grocery money.
- 11th - Mariner Finance sues Chris for unpaid debt.
- 22nd - After a month without begging, due to a boost in Patreon funds after Chris revived the Sonichu comic, he begs for $50. He had given that amount to DoopieDoOver earlier that month as a pledge on her Patreon.
- 1st - Chris pledges more money to DoopieDoOver's Patreons, hoping to receive anthropomorphized lesbian My Little Pony porn in return. Doopie, aware of Chris and Barb's financial straits, offers to refund Chris's payments to her, but he refuses.
- 11th–13th - Chris makes an expensive, three-day trip to BronyCon in Maryland. Other attendees have stated that the cost for going to BronyCon is around $2,000–3,000 when including travel, food, souvenirs and lodging.
- 18th - Chris informs his patrons of a two-week delay in sending their books, as he had blown their funds on BronyCon instead.
- 24th - Mariner Finance’s unpaid debt case against Chris is dropped.
- 1st - Chris donates $20 to Red Cross to help victims in the wake of Hurricane Harvey in Texas after seeing a message from Tara Strong on Twitter.
- 9th - Chris records an updated intro for his Patreon, stating that he still needs the income from it for bills.
- 6th - Chris reveals he had purchased an Xbox One at some point recently, and looking at his games/account, he has spent around $549.93 on it.
