      What: Commission

    On the 3rd of July, MarbleShark_AD reached out to me, complimenting my OCs and offering me to commission them to help with their homeless situation.  I was initially interested but I didn’t buy a commission until August 14th, where we did business then.  We settled for $50 USD for (1) one shaded commission, which then we discussed about payment.  

    They only accepted CashApp, which I had to make an account to even send the payment.  I had an issue at first until I managed to get the QR code to work, and the payment was successful.  Soon after, they offered another commission for $20 USD, and I accepted.  After telling me happy birthday the day after, August 15th, I barely heard from them, until almost a whole month later, September 10th.  In the early hours of the night, they messaged me stating they needed money to get an Uber after getting out of jail and into an unsafe area 12 miles away from their home, promising me they’d pay me back.  

    They specifically asked for $35 USD, again through CashApp, and ultimately I obliged, feeling concerned for their current safety.  I messaged them a few days after to get an update, but I didn’t get much of an answer, and they left me in the dark without a response until October 13th, where, again, they asked for more money.  They wanted another $25 to get an Uber from the countryside to the hospital, again saying they would pay me back, but due to the tight budget I had this month, I couldn’t help them again.  In addition, I also commented about the previous time they asked for money and how they’ve yet to pay me back like they said.  

    Plus mentioning that I’ve yet to get any updates or word about the status of the commissions I paid for, stating that seeing an update would be greatly appreciated.  In response, they simply said, “sorry for asking for help damn.”  I waited a few more days and asked about the commissions, and soon sent a huge statement representing how I felt about the lack in communication and the negligence of any update to the commissions I paid for.  I told them to not ignore my message, only to see that it was never seen, and yet when looking at their profile, they’re making general posts and offering much smaller priced headshot commissions.

    - provided is the screen cap for paying MarbleShark_AD, or on their CashApp, Tenae, a total of $105 USD; $70 USD total for the two commissions, plus the additional $35 for their Uber ride back home.
    - Additionally, I provide the chat log from Twitter/X involving me, and MarbleShark_AD.
