Commissioner Beware: SonicDash

WHO: SonicDash on Tumblr: http://sonicdash.tumblr.com/
http://www.furaffinity.net/user/zekrom0695 - I was told by another artist that was also charged back that this was his FA name.

WHERE: My tumblr, Bluntwhiskey.tumblr.com (NSFW), and e-mail

WHAT: A digital sketch of his character.

WHEN: September 5 – 7, 2013

PROOF: (Links Below are Screenshots and Paypal Transactions)

EXPLAIN: SonicDash poked me on tumblr, asking about a commission after he saw I was opened for such last week. After a lot of back and forth, we’ve come to an agreement, and I had him pay an invoice I sent to him over paypal. I finish his commission a couple of days later, and that was the last I heard from him through e-mails. Today, I noticed that there was a chargeback notice on my paypal account. So I asked him about it, and apparently, his parents forced him to file chargebacks against myself, and another artist, CitrusVision, and probably others.

I find it all very ... over-the-top sounding, with the excuse they gave you why the charge-back was filed.

"They (parents) threatened to take me to jail [...]"

From the Tumblr-screenshot. Am I the only one who found that bit to be incredibly difficult to believe?

I don't find it difficult to believe. He's apparently a notorious liar. I actually had to block him on skype for harassing me for like 3 days straight. I've also had a friend warn me about how he harasses other artists (sometimes to a point where they up and delete their tumblr) for fetish art and gets upset when they decline. He also told me that people have confronted him about his harassment and he blames it on his (twin) brother he apparently has.

Yeesh. Time to give my block-function some use today.

But what I meant by it being incredibly hard to believe is the fact that his parents would take him to jail for spending money. I just ... don't see how or why that would happen.

They could be angry, yes. But taking their son to jail? Too outrageous for me to believe.

Yeah, you would think! But sometimes people have odd relationships with their parents, I guess.

Woooah. O.o

I don't suppose you have any screenshots you can share? Conversations over Skype are logged even if you took him off your list and blocked him. All you gotta do is look for his name on Skype again.

Would that be appropriate to post here?

Also, I'm noottt sure what his skype name was, but I might be able to find chatlogs with my friend warning me about him.

A friend warning you about a user isn't something we'd like posted. It's hearsay and not really appropriate for the community.

EDIT: It's not appropriate to be used as "proof" of behavior, since it's more in the lines of "he said, she said" and we try to avoid that whenever possible.

Okay, I figured. Which is why I asked. Thank you!
