    Hi,

    A few months ago i ordered 3 customs from Chris Morada. I dont know if any one of you guys know him.

    One of them was a Rotf Optimus Prime. Last week i received an email that the custom was ready. I received some pictures of the finished custom optimus prime. At first i was very glad that he looked amazing.


    Then i came across the same pics on a couple of japanese websites. I was in shock. Chris used those pictures, he put his name on it, and then he sended them to me. Does anyone recognize these pics???

    PLAMO LOVE

    %26client%3Dsafari%26rls%3Den%26sa%3DN%26start%3D18%26um%3D1

    We had an agreement about the payment, after prime was finished i would have to pay the rest so that he could continue working on those other two customs, and only after he would receive the payment then he would send the finished prime.

    I immediatly send him an email with his pics and with the pics i found on the net and asked for his explanation. Normally i would get a reply back within 1 or 2 days. No it has been almost a week and i havent heard from Chris Morada yet.

    I can not understand that people have the guts to steal somebody elses pictures and put his own name on it.

    Well i guess i can say goodbye to the 3 customs and my money. I paid all my money thru paypal. But i paid my first payment somewhere in September and Paypal says i can not get that money back. Last week i paid my second payment and even now paypal says i can not get that money back because i paid it as a private payment or something.

    Anyone else has these kind of experiences?? Does anyone know how to solve this?

    I WANT MY MONEY BACK !!!

    Let this be a warning for everybody. This kind of crap will make a paying customer hunt you down until they get their money back.

    Thanks in advance.
    Amar

    Well, it doesn't look like "chrismoradascustoms.com" is even a real website.

    yes, I would have to ask the same thing. Just because they appeared on a different site it doesn't mean they aren't his. this is one reason that most commissioners ask for progress to be shown on the boards though. If he was showing other people before you I might get a little angry(if I were you) but it does not help to blow up on it.

    I think there is a thread for this stuff in the "junkion exchange" see if anyone else has had any issues there as well.

    (edit) yeah, IDK. That's not how I roll. my same desk shot is in ALL of my Wips though, so you could tell if there was a change, lol.

    that sucks man, it's a pity as well, Morada did some cool stuff, didn't realize he was such a douchebag though. it's good that you spread the word about this guy.

    Wow, really hope this turns out not to be true...first of all because I hate to think someone got scammed bringing business to customizers (they need all the support they can get to keep them going, and getting scammed sucks donkey b&lls), but also because I had (still have? innocent til proven guilty and all that....) a lot of respect for Morada. It was his work that got me started customizing TFs two years ago!
    Lets hope things sort themselves out...

    Yeah, that's one possibility. It's kind of a stretch that that would be his website..I mean it is in japanese. It seems, from what I've read from other posts, that this guy is a legit customizer though and that he's got a reputation to hold up. I wouldn't go around barking about this though, no offense. I mean, for all we know you could be an angry admirer slandering him, you know?

    If this is serious, and you want your money back, I don't think you're gona get it. It's a risk we all take..

    :rolleyes2 

    Maybe English isn't his first language? He found the pics on Japanese websites after all.

    Anyway, that sucks, Amar2010! I hope you get your money back!

    is this for real? Omigosh! But I thought Chris Morada had made a name here already at radicons (really think this just made a good reputation already) , I do hope there's just some mistake or misunderstanding. its sad to know such incident.

    It looks like he aim for short term business hit n run which cause him bad reputation .
    But if he is delayed with something else maybe u can give him a chance to resolve everything under the table.
    Hope everything will b fine ;)
