THIS IS AN OLD ARTICLE, BACK WHEN THE TEAM WERE USING THE SLENDERMAN. THIS HAS BEEN KEPT FOR ARCHIVAL PURPOSES.

THIS IS AN OLD ARTICLE, BACK WHEN THE TEAM WERE USING THE SLENDERMAN. THIS HAS BEEN KEPT FOR ARCHIVAL PURPOSES.




I got a very useful message this morning by a guy who will remain nameless, but he hosts video-game streams. He brought about this guy named "Justin" which is my name, posing as me in these streams saying he created Slender: Source and he's trying to get money for donations towards the game.

Funny thing is, we have not asked for donations yet and have only sold shirts as a form of in-come so we can afford server fees when the mod releases. He also states that this guy is from the UK when I clearly am from Canada.

So, if you see a guy named Justin from the UK asking you to donate money to him for Slender: Source, please ignore it. You'll lose that money, and it won't be put towards anything. It's a scam, and what-not.

I'm really glad this was brought to my attention, I don't want anything happening to our loyal fans. Also, please note that none of the development will ask people to donate money by going into streams, games, or anything else. If we run a type of campaign/thing we'll only do it via KickStarter and release an official statement.

Keep safe.

(UPDATE 13/04/14: It's very possible that 'Justin' was indeed this scammer regardless, due to obtaining all the donation funds, blocking all team members and running off.)

Surely there is some link to this guy or his schemes? Someone should show that bastard who he is messing with.
