    Message added by James,

    We have a few mod notes on this:

    • There is a user on Twitter also known as "Fruv_" and "Fruv" on FA.  After extensive searching, they do not appear to be the same people.
    • Asking for work is not begging for money.
    • Discord Nitro allows users to change their tag number.
    • Any additional tags have been found by our staff.

    We have censored the artist's irl name and email.  If you need to confirm or deny if you're dealing with this individual, please contact @Celestina

    Found artist advertising commissions on Reddit under the reddit name "meal_t1me" .  I had gotten a commission from them initially on 5/21/21 with no issues whatsoever, and then a few days later they sent me a DM begging me for money. After some dispute over the amount, I agreed on a second commission.   I sent a payment for this commission for £26.25 (£25 + tip) on 5/29/21.

    A few weeks passed with no response from the Artist to which they finally messaged me with that they are "being thretened to be doxed". More weeks passed with no response. On 6/17/21 I requested a refund for the commission. A day later they said they are sorry, they are being threatened, and "will get to my commission ASAP"

    It is now 7/16/21 and the artist deleted their discord and reddit accounts. All screenshots of our conversation, and proof of paypal transaction are being submitted with this post, with sensitive information censored out.


    Some important things to note:

    [Mod Note:  We removed a segment on supposed proof of the user "begging" for money.  While this artist's behavior is inexcusable, they were not begging for money.  They were asking for work.]

    • Artist begging for money in a direct message to me
    • Artist using multiple discord accounts  [Mod Note:  Upon looking around, this isn't two discords.  It's Nitro]


    • Artist using multiple paypal accounts
    • Artist changed the agreed upon price of a commission
    • Artist has deleted all means of contact
