Commissioner Beware - 100percentamazing

WHO: 100PERCENTAMAZING
WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/100percentamazing//
WHAT: Full color commission with two characters - $60
WHEN: Requested June 10th; completed June 20th

EXPLAIN: The request for the commission was placed in mid June, and upon starting the commission, 100percentamazing provided me with a PayPal Cash Card number and informed me to withdraw the amount from that. When I contacted PayPal customer service, they informed me the card was empty with no funds on it.

The image was completed and received approval on June 20th, with the comment that they would "pay when I'm able"
Click Link

When asked again about it a few weeks later, they informed me that they would pay on July 11th.
Click Link

On July 10th, they wrote telling me payment would be delayed.
Click Link

When pressed, they were unable to give any idea on payment time or a time frame.
Click Link

When confronted that I felt they had no intention of paying, they wrote to me that it was my "own fault"

Use caution when dealing with 100percentamazing and it is recommended not to do any work before getting full payment.

This person tried to commission me in June and after reading their form they sent in, I felt something was "off" about them as a client, especially considering their FA account was completely empty. Before initiating any contact, I decided to do some google searching about them and found they apparently had a history:

This one is new!

When I brought up that link and said I felt uncomfortable working with them, they began using obscenities like calling me a "bitch".

My question is why did you complete the image after being informed by Paypal that the card was empty? If that's the case anyway.

I'm sure hindsight is 20/20 in the cases with artists who have yet to learn to not deliver completed images unwatermarked and/or take pay upon completion.

Because it was already almost done, and a general belief that sometimes people make mistakes. So after spending half an hour on the phone with Paypal trying to get this sorted out, we figured it was just a fluke. Sometimes people have financial problems and it takes them a little while to pay, it is rude and means that they are not readily put on the commission list again, but it happens. Generally speaking, people are not this big of an asshole.

Also...I tried to edit, but had already gotten a reply:

Kandlin does not ask for payment until the product is finished, or finished to a certain point (minus small changes, things like that), and then approved. But different artists do things differently. Making sure commissioners are happy with his work is just the way he does commissions.

Seems I dodged a bullet with this guy. I knew the name sounded familiar and I had it on my block list. Looking back through my notes he had asked if I was open for commissions, but I dont recall why I blocked him. Seems a good idea that I did though. I require payment upfront, so we probably wouldnt have gotten very far. Looks like he has been doing this sort of thing for awhile, scamming people out of art. I hope the word spreads!

Wow, that comment saying it's your fault that they didn't pay for their commission.

It's like someone at McDonalds walking off with food without paying and going, "it's your own fault for handing me my food before taking my money".

Because that totally excuses theft.

Not to be rude or anything of the sort but coming from their last response in that note, it sounds like they are... maybe young of age. Says 20 on their FA page but I have... many doubts.

Given some of the interactions I had with them through notes for the commission, I wouldn't exclude the possibility of them being underage (their commission was rated G, so no conflict there) or having English as a second language. However, taking into consideration that other testimonials on this thread, it would seem clear that they do this type of thing on purpose just to see how far they can get away with it and with how many people. Weather they are underage or simply acting that way remains a mystery.

Ooooh This person! Ugh.

This came into my stream once and wanted to do nothing but post links to their 'Amazing portal pony'. After linking it repeatedly one of my chat mods asked them to quit, and was promptly called a bitch she banned them. Glad that was my only interaction.

Just as a head's up, this person is back with a new username and is trying to commission me after what he said before:
http://www.furaffinity.net/user/mynameislee1994/

Watch out if this person comes trying to ask you for art again, it seems like they don't get it.

Hey! Do you happen to have any solid link to them being the same person?

I know this is an older post, I just wanted to leave this post here, that the user seems to be using another handle to get around blocks and try and commission people.

User: MyNameIsLee1994 just sent me a PM linking to http://www.furaffinity.net/view/17602834/ wanting a commission.
