I was recently scammed by this person.
His name is Philipe Mathäus.
He ordered three commissions last year. He received them and approved them.
Out of the blue he makes three false Paypal dispute claims in which he says that Paypal took the money from his bank without his authorization.
Paypal acted in his favor and took $750 from me. Paypal, (as if I was some sort of online thief) blocked my account and fined me for some charges.
You can clearly see in the conversations a complete transaction.
When I confronted him, he didn't gave me a straight answer. He never even talked during the Paypal Dispute conversation .
This man is a thief!!
The case is still under investigation. In the meantime I have to use an alternate Paypal address to receive payments.
I'll update everyone when this thing clears up.
I will keep this matter public to avoid other artists and even industry professionals from getting scammed by this person until I get back my money, the unblocking of my Paypal account and get paid for the damages caused by overdraft.
Again, the way he operates is that he asks for a commission, pays for it, then goes to his bank and makes a false claim for a refund. Paypal blocks you and takes the money from your bank and he disappears.
I've been gathering testimonials from other artists that he scammed.
He went under the name @Picutirt on Twitter.
If you have been robbed by this person, please share your experience.
Dude, if your plans were to enter the animation industry using the designs I made for you FOR FREE, you are in for something, because you scammed the wrong person.
Your name will get flagged in the animation world unless you solve this matter immediately.
