    Warning: Do not do business with Chris Gwynne

    I Repeat do not do business with Chris Gywnne the owner of http://www.chrisgwynne.com

    I payed Chris to code me a skin, he agreed and asked for a downpayment of $50 so i sent him the money through paypal. Later that same day(sunday) i told him i need the skin ready and coded by Wednesday, he agreed and so did i.
    Wednesday came, he said he'll have the skin ready at 10PM so i waited, 9PM came and i asked him if he finished it yet he said theres one more hour to go so i waited more and 10PM finally came and guess what he went offline lmao. The day after that i asked him if he finished the skin, he said his finishing off some minor details then went offline. Friday came and i said im deducting $10 off his next payment, he agreed and then went offline. Sataurday came and he said his gonna finish it today, i needed to go offline so i said email it to me he agreed so i went offline, came back online on sunday and i had recieved no mail from Chris so i IM'ed him like 40 times over AIM and MSN Messenger telling him to give me a refund but he never did and still hasn't till this day.

    Chris is a mod on yaxay if i'm correct? Very worrying to hear that someone with such a high position is conducting business like this.....iNet need to look into this one.

    If you paid through Paypal contact their support to let them know what has happened and if you paid using a credit card just tell your bank to cancel the payment.
