Seeking advice

I was recently in an art trade with someone who was going to write a story in exchange for me doing art. He finished his story first and as I read it, I saw that the character names he had chosen, Reiko and Janden, were often replaced with Greta and Horace. I questioned him about it, and he admitted that he had pasted together a mish mash of previous stories he had written for his half of the trade.

I spoke with a friend about this who said I should post here. But that I should finish my half of the trade despite this, so I would "come out smelling like a rose." I don't feel I should be obligated to do this as he didn't actually write a new story.

I am unsure of what to do at this point. Any helpful advice would be much appreciated.
