Im sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I couldnt post in the advertizing forum.
How can I trust people that have offered to make me some graphics (in this case 'kwl')? How can I not be ripped off? He has already made all the graphics and such, or so I beleive, but his paypal account is unvertified and has no apparent transactions.
I suggest you draw up a quick contract / agreement between you so if he fails to deliver then you don't have to worry. Alternatively if he doesn't deliver PayPal have a system that allows you to get your money back (by contacting them).
Has he shown you watermarked images? If not, DO NOT PAY
Yes - I've already made the transaction with him and am very pleased. He showed me MANY watermarked images threw the whole design process. It was obvious he knew what he was doing and he always did what I asked of him. Its just, I've dealt with some bad eggs before, such as they have showed me their work, I payed them, and then they took off. His username on this forum is kwl. I suggest him very much. He is cheap (although you can expect his prices to increase as he becomes better and more popular) and very friendly.
