I received an personal message from a username ''thejoshinator'' claiming to have 5 years experience creating graphics for licensed GBA, iOS, and Iphone games and about 3 years in the Nintendo DS industry.
We communicated via skype and exchanged a deal that I would pay him 80 in advance for a basic sprite sheet. After the payment I received little word from him, after which he went missing for a few days. I became suspicious and emailed him.
Later that day he come on skype claiming to have been kicked out of his house by his girlfriend which left him homeless for a few days.
He claimed it was raining and he had no where to stay and no money.
after googling the weather in his area I hesitantly believed his story and gave him 20 to get a hotel and some food for the night. I then said if I seen no results on our deal with-in the next 3 days I would assume he was a scammer.
He said he would send me a sprite the next day which he didn't.
About a week later of no sign from him, I googled his name (Joshua Astorian) and found a forum topic on the first link with other claiming to have given him money with no result.
He defended himself on the topic with the same story he told me.
I then noticed this topic was from 2009 when he only just told me this story happened (2012).
I can only assume this man is a fake name scamming people for work and using this sob story as a defence.
