“Comic Client Wants Me To Pay Them $1,000 To Work For Them, And Wants 150 Pages In 14 Days”

A few days ago, an artist who goes on Reddit by the name BaskinMyRobbins submitted a conversation he had with a potential client to the platform’s ‘Choosing Beggars’ community, and it gives off pretty much the same vibe as our list ‘53 Times People Received Such Pathetic Scam Messages, They Just Had To Laugh And Share Them Online.’

As you might expect, the artist declined this “opportunity”
