Scam commissioner : Lightness7

WHO: Lightness7

WHERE: Through Furaffinity and Paypal

WHAT: First he sent me a note asking me for a commission.
I accepted it, and he payed me the 22 of April with paypal for 40€
I've completed his commission within 9 days, he was happy with it.

WHEN: From the 22 of April to now

PROOF: Screenshot of the notes for the commission : http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/226/d/6/proof_1_by_floravola-d7v3nq2.png

EXPLAIN: Though a month later, on May 22, he asked for a refund on paypal and I couldn't do anything about it, I asked him about it.
Apparently he told me he got his credit card stolen and that I'll get the money back.
I've sent him a note some days later, but he never replied.
I noticed he wasn't active on Furaffinity anymore after this, he probably left the site to make another account.

I've sent him two emails with his paypal adress asking him to refund me, but he didn't reply to me there either.

The 21 May he got his money back, and I had 40(+16€ of fees) to give to paypal.
The money in my account was -56€. I had to get it back to 0€.

I phoned to paypal to know if I could get the amount refunded, but since it's no physical good, they can't do anything about it.

What he probably did was to issue a refund because his credit card was « stolen », I checked with couple artists and he did the same to them.

And he was found active on his account 2 weeks ago from now, but I still got no words from him.

Current Mood: Still waiting
