I don't believe in posting peoples private details publicly, but if anyone cares to pm me I would send them the screenshots. She has ignored any and all subsequent messages on facebook, even though she has since posted updates on her life, and since PayPal won't refund me I am effectively out over £100.

That is a fair amount of money for me, and I am really, really hurt -emotionally as well as financially. So please, even if not locked, at the very least post a warning on the original post and/or front page that this is most likely a scam. Don't let others make the same mistake, please.

@byron

Email Taleweaver or pytom and ask them. They might be able to lock this. Tell them to hide her email too so that this doesn't happen to someone else. I'm really sorry this happened to you =(.

Dear god. xD

Reading this thread really hammered home the idea that you can't trust people to do a job for you over the internet. I was planning on paying hundreds of dollars at a time to whatever sprite artist I end up finding, but now I'm a little hesitant... definitely gonna have them sign an ironclad contract and only pay half up-front, then the other half when I get the final sprites. Getting scammed like this would delay my VN's release, and I've already let go a couple artists with awful, awful communication issues. :/
