  • Caution : FoiFouu / I can’t remember my name

    • Who: FoiFouu / I can’t remember my name
      Where: Discord / Art Commissions Discord
      When: 09/18/2019
      What: Commission
      NSFW Content

    Okay so, I’m not entirely sure this warrants a beware so that’s why I put this under Caution. 

    This may be a potential scam, reason why I say “may” is because the reasons that popped up didn’t seem 100% BS.

    Basically, FoiFouu lied about sending me 70$ for a reference sheet they tried to commission off me. They repeatedly tried to send me signs that it was really being sent and maybe trying to guilt me into doing it for free, but I specifically told them that I would not be starting it until payment was verified (thus me getting an annoyed response back)  I offered to refund them the hundreds of dollars they supposedly sent me tons of times, if they’d show me proof that they did pay it. Sadly they quietly refused to send me any proof. A day later and I contact them again letting them know that payment has still not been received and proof of payment would be appreciated (At this point I sort of believed they actually sent money and was offering to start on it if they would just send me proof that it was paid for.)

    I got no response and I contacted the server mods I encountered “FoiFouu” in. They asked me to forward proof and once I did, they told me they would investigate further about the situation. 2 days passed and no reply from the Mod Mail Bot so I bumped the thread. A few hours I get a response telling me that they have reviewed the content and have contacted “FoiFouu” about the situation and that if they don’t reply there would be consequences. Thus “FoiFouu” did not reply resulting in them getting banned and getting labeled as potentially scamming members(As shown in picture). I have included FoiFouu’s discord username below just in case anyone encounters someone similar and is not sure if they’re FoiFouu or not. Please be cautious of this person!!


    (Apologies if some of this doesn’t make sense, it’s early in the morning for me. I’ll be happy to clear up some misunderstandings!)

    Someone tried to scam me by sending a 'Pending' payment as well, I believe it means they're trying to send money they don't have.

    They can then postpone it indefinitely, at least that's what the person did to me. Said it would clear in a week, and then got an email saying it didn't go through and extended the pending to like a month. You did a smart thing by not doing anything until you had the money in hand.

    Pending transactions can also mean e-checks. DO NOT work until it clears if this is the case. Also, the screenshot where it says 'sending to' is NOT a payment sent; anyone can get this screenshot. You have to finalize the send. If they are using that as proof, its a scam.

    So a couple of things here:

    - Never ask clients to send money friends and family. Ever. It is against PayPal TOS, removes protection for the client, and can cost you your PayPal account. If PayPal opts to close your account any money in it is essentially forfeit.

    -  Don't accept work that makes you uncomfortable. Doing things that you're not happy doing can lead to burn out.

    What happened to the first transaction? Did you cancel it, or did it just never go through?

    -I understand this now.

    -It’s not that I wasn’t comfortable: I didn’t mind if it was just simple nudity, it just depends and I raise my prices on that.

    -It never went through.
