Hey there! I recently had someone join me at my $95 reward tier which includes a couple of physical items.
Unfortunately, I know this person: She used to scam artists for their artwork through PayPal.
The trick she used was the following:
She purchased an artwork and paid through PayPal. Then after she got it, she withdraws her payment, claiming the artwork never arrived and opens a Paypal case. Many artists didn’t use tracking numbers or forgot to photograph their packages so she was able to scam a lot of people. She tried to do that with me too, but I had collected a ton of proofs, conversations from other people saying she’s a common scammer and I provided Paypal with a photo of the package and the tracking status, the proof that the package arrived. So, in the end, I got my money back.
And now to my question: Can she do the same trick with Patreon now, too? Withdraw her package after she gets everything? I would highly appreciate an answer from the Patreon staff because I am going to send out my rewards this week!
