    <<To moderater, i might need help explaining things, or explination of what might be wrong with my claim, I or you can delete this, if needed >>>
    In July 16, 2019.I had posted via polycount, a job/commission. Trying to get help for a personal project with animating and help with refining a 3D model. When I was contacted Mr.Davis sent me several youtube videos and a website of their previous work. After reviewing it, I had decided to choose Mr.Davis for the project in question. 


    Many things during our back-and-forth email had let me know we were both in understanding of what was project was. From there, we had decided to go through the bulk of the coversation through Discordapp.com. The following week we had hashed out all details and 'trimmings' of what was to be done and further discussed when prompted. the total cost was to be 1200 USD. 


    After both of is agreeing to a "half now, half later" payment process. Mr. Davis went to work. During the same mention week. We had chatted on what needed to be fixed and what had been  completed thus far. Then, a very long unwarrented, hiatus started. I waited 3 week with no contact of any kind. After trying to contact them a decent amount of times. Only to be told that by Mr. Davis had not been working on the agreed-to, project hardly at all due to other work taking over too much. I understood having too much to do and so I left it at that. I waited 2 more weeks.


    After trying for contact again.
    Mr. Davis stated that they they were, just now, visiting family, with little acknowledgement of the hiatus mentioned prior. Mr. Davis said after two weeks they would be back to getting back on track.
    I waited the alloted two weeks and then tried to contact them to see if all was well. No responses were had for 1 month, after the claimed 2 week, requested delay. It has been a total of 3 months trying to get in contact of my project or progress. I have filed a Paypal refund, only to be denied. Paypal stating that "I had recieved what was commissioned". I did not. As of now, I want to try and get in contact with Mr. Davis to see what went wrong. As, Mr. Davis has blocked me on Discorapp.com. I want to either get my money back or get what I was promised. If anyone could help with this, I would appreciate it.

    I would try going through your credit card company for a refund, or call paypal.

    Very unusual that paypal sided with the artist, usually they never do. Did they provide proof you were provided with the service?

    Yeup, in judging by the email it looks like the artist provided something that caused Paypal to claim the service was done.  The unfortunate thing is that it could be OP getting something for approval.  I'm hoping OP will be able to send the resolution center caps, because gosh, it's so weird.

    I vaguely remember this name from when a friend of mine was looking for someone to hire a while back ago. I searched him up and found this: [edited out due to doxxing].

    Seems he has mastered the art of scamming hard working people out of their money. I dunno if this will help you or not but I figured since I recognized the name I'd show you what I read on him a while ago. I hope you can get it solved, I say call paypal or go through your card holder.

    Call paypal and present your evidence. Show them what the 'artist' showed you as examples and what you discussed. This must be the first case I saw where paypal sided with such a case. Very strange. Maybe they showed them something else?
    If they still won't help you, then go directly to your credit card and call fraud. They will help you as far as I know.

    And I would actually want to see that link. It's important for people to know who this is. at least provide a screen with blacked out info or sth.

    Honestly, Celestina... then you didn't have to leave the post through at all because like this... it's not exactly helpful to the case. This person scams people out of huge amounts of money. Shouldn't that be prevented...? I thought that's what AB is for?

    The thread was pretty long, with about five pages containing other artists' information. Managed to dig out and censor the posts. Looks like he's made a habit of sending something to get PayPal to side in his favor.

    Let me get the tags updated.
