    So this happened a little bit after I started being more active on FurAffinity.

    I will write the whole story at the end of the screenshots.

    Its my first post on here so I'm sorry if the pictures are not in the right order.

    They messaged me wanting to commission me.

    They wanted to add me on Discord which we did. We added each other.

    We discussed the first commission which wasnt a problem at all.

    Also proof about them sending me their email for the invoice :

    Im suspecting a dummy e-mail.

     

    Proof that I sent them the first commission.

    They quickly wanted to commission me more, which is completly fine by me.

    So In total i had around 5 commissions done for them.

    theywanttopay.png.ad42a4297698c5f9832e9164c8a772d1.pngI was going to bed.

     

    Afterwards I tried to play with them since they added me on a video game. Their nickname ingame was Dumas, which ofc is also his main Account on Furrafinity. (Dumas~) (I got worried about my payment so I googled their name and thats how I found out.)

    Fluffaroo82 is only their secondary account.

    Here is the proof that they added me :

    And now after all the commissions were done, me trying to play with them

    proofinfore.png.abbbc97deed464500bb0dc799b5eff42.png

    And thats how it ends. They slowly started ignoring me

    Ignore.thumb.png.259e63c3060ed1ec8a1ec976e66e3e7f.pngThe last message was also sent on FA.

    The only time they messaged me was to let me know their PC had an issue, which was a COMPLETE lie because they were playing the video game ( Im not going to name the game.) on their own. You can check the last few matches on certain websites for that. So their PC were completly okay. And even then. They couldnt contact me on Discord. FA was still an option.

    FAfkluff.thumb.png.9c55f0d29b7fe5848684b796bdb2239f.png

    And then I never heard from them ever again.

     

    Now here is the full story :

    I got a message from them on FA, asking for a Commission, which was completly fine - it supports me as an artist!

    Quickly they told me what exactly they wanted and I finished the commission the same day - and thats when they wanted more and more without paying.

    Since the art was related to a game we both were actually playing, I asked them for their Ingame name, which was Dumas. Now, since I asked around and also googled out of curiosity, I found out that Dumas~ is his main account on Furaffinity and I could alos see the same likeness in the art they had posted and the ones I got commissioned. ( Scraps, and some in the gallery.)

    After I told them to pay me and that im closing my commissions for private reasons it started crumbling down. 

    I noticed first that they deleted me ingame. I messaged them asking basically " Why " and that " I thought we wanted to play together?"

    They started ignoring me, but before that they made me feel "safe" by telling me that they had enaugh funds its just PayPal's fault.

    So I was patient and gave them a week of a deadline but during that time I didnt even heard anything from them.

    And here I am. They owe me 160USD worth of art.

    Edit:  09/25/19

    I've been paid!

    Very sad that this user seems to just be flat out scamming multiple people now. I hope you're able to repurpose the art in some way. In the future, it can help to send heavily watermarked + small res images until you have payment. Sadly, it usually takes being burned like this to start doing that. Sorry this happened to you.

    ALWAYS, take payment upfront. I've seen people bragging about getting free art from artists that doesn't take payment upfront :/. If some client doesn't want to commission you just because they don't trust you for asking the payment first, is a big red flag.
