      When: 01/08/2020
      What: Commission


    On the date December 31st, 2019 I was messaged by Lori Peters for a commission of a headshot. The headshot I advertised only cost $10 USD at that current time. She claimed interest for the headshot, asking if I was still open for commissions. I explained to her that I was, but it would be a 2-3 day turn around time. Normally, I do send invoices but she did ask me for my e-mail. I informed her that it would be $10 USD. 

    She verbalized understanding w/o question, and sent a picture verifying that payment was sent. Upon the verification, I then had informed her that I would start the piece. I had sent multiple works in progress once she had sent the reference to me. Once the piece was completed, I sent it to the e-mail address that she asked for me to send it to. That was the end of the transaction. I thanked her for choosing to do business with me, and that the transaction was indeed complete. 

    Today, on January 1st, 2020 I recieved an e-mail from (I am not putting the person's name out there due to the wishes of not wanting their name out there). The E-mail states

     "Hi there Danielle,

    My name is ------ and I have been scammed by your niece, Lori.

    On the 31st I sent $15 to your PayPal as Lori’s request - I used this email address.

    She had sold me a character on Instagram that was not hers to sell as she did not own. This is scamming.

    I politely request that you send the $15 back to me or I may have to raise this with PayPal as a scam and it may block your PayPal account.

    I really am sorry as you’re probably not aware that she has scammed multiple people using your PayPal. Also I do apologise as it isn’t your fault but I really would rather to settle this between us.

    Thank you,
    ---------." 

    So upon my confusion, I stated that I do not have a niece named Lori. Which, in reality I am a 21 year old. I do have a 16 year old niece, but she does not associate with the fandom what so ever, and she does not use paypal. After putting the pieces together --- this is what happened. 

    Lori claimed to be me, while her and my transaction were going on and sent my paypal to this person for an adopt that they had no right in selling. The person sent the payment to my paypal thinking that I was Lori's Aunt or Lori herself. While I was thinking it was Lori that sent the payment to me. 

    Pictures are attached. I am currently resolving this issue, as I did not have any knowledge before hand about this issue until today (after) artwork was completed. So, now I am attempting to hash this all out. 

    The e-mail that is on there, shows proof of her claiming to be me to get the transaction process started. My e-mail is public knowledge.

    Oh wow, what a mess

    You may have to eat this one, as sucky as it is. and keep an eye on that person's account, and if they decide to post it anywhere to report/DMCA it immediately.

    A good way to avoid this in the future is to send out invoices instead with details on what is being purchased from you.

    I'm sorry, what a cruddy situation.

    This is one of many reasons I always send an invoice. I can also attach my ToS and be detailed on what is being ordered from me. First step would definitely be to inform the scammer that, due to events caused by their actions, the commission was refunded and she no longer has any rights to using or sharing the art.

    I did refund the person, even though I had no legal obligation to do so. As a person with a good conscious, I was not able to let someone else be scammed.
