    EXPLAIN: Let me first say that Dusty are not on social terms, so I am trying my best to report this in an unbiased manner. Upon seeing a few of her images go across the front page, I've checked out her gallery a few times. Several of her items in her gallery did not match her style. (Can be provided, if requested. They had me suspecting, but I can't prove anything. ) so I kept an eye on her gallery. Eventually, she has uploaded various YCH auctions (most, if not all look traced. ) and people are actually spending money on them. This is very scammy to me, and I would like to get the word out. If I can provide any more information, please request and I will do what I can.

    She has since had her shouts cleared, hidden comments where she was called out on tracing (I do not have caps, so feel free to not believe me. Totally understand. ) and continues to post images that look traced.... which people have paid for.

    *EDIT* -- My apologies for linking to removed submissions. All caps have been updated with working links. If I can provide anything else, let me know and I will do my best to fill in any blanks were applicable.
