      When: 04/20/2020
      What: Commission


    She tried to hire artists on FA under guest name, alex-rose-nitya on mar18, 2020.

    She PMed me, but said no Paypal, only Cashapp. I declined.

    Then again on April18, 2020 as foxyfluffstudio.

    I lost my regular income and was desperately seeking work. So I agreed to accept Bandcamp giftcards. (I had planned to spend the full amount on about 10~20 musicians / bands, some charity to help them through this rough time...)

    I noticed that she was having thoughts of selling adoptables created from the bases she commissioned, and Her FB profile was non-exsisted, but whatever who still uses FB.

    Total summary of her crime - She commissioned 4 base packs ( 32 full-body lined characters in total ) and paid $60 out of $480.

    I finally recieved half of the total payment, after weeks of stalling. Finally, I let her download the 2 completed base sets.

    At this time I realized my balance went down, but don't know any better, and bandcamp 's staff was overwhelmed with emails, and their waiting line took a lot longer than usual. She denies that she bounced my payment.

    And once I received bandcamp's feedback and did some digging. (thinking she might be a kid)

    Found out she is not a kid and asked again if she can switch to PayPal. She kept on lying.

    The last confrontation of this sad story - After showing her the copied response from Bandcamp, her FA status went immediately from New member > Pending deletion.

    Wow this is horrible. I couldn't even imagine being scammed out of such a huge and time consuming project. Maybe you can re-use what you have as YCHs? Really sorry this happened to you 😕

    Hey just as a heads up, OP. Furry is very active on Facebook. You may still want to watch out to see if the bases are being used. Contacting the mods for the various groups before hand may help.

    Son of a- This person commissioned me back all the way in January for a NSFW commission, and instead of asking for payment upfront (it was only 40$, mind you, but this was back when I wasn't working), I stupidly agreed to payment after everything was done. DX

    I gave her the benefit of the doubt back in March because that's when the whole virus thing got real bad, but I haven't been able to connect her via discord yet, and she hasn't contacted me on her main discord (I got a discord request from her as foxyfluffstudios, which brought me here) because either I got blocked or due to her having it as friends only to be able to dm in her settings. 

    I did get in contact via toyhouse on the 18th about talking things through, but now seeing this... I feel scammed, dude.

    I am 10000% sorry that they got to you. I hope somehow you can turn their work into a YCH or an adopt to recoup lost money.

    Update:

    This scammer started a new post on FA, and tried the same thing again. I don't think she got wind of this beware list yet, but I rather not spook her to change her current alias. I planned to keep an eye out on this post, and sent out warnings to unfortunates who reply there.

    She recently changed her name to Safe.counter and was active on FA forum. ( Safe.counter is now pending deletion )

    I’ve also been used out of 200€ by her for a base pack, I stupidly agreed to an amazon gift card, had them refund the money to her and asked her to send it back to me. A few days after that im mysteriously locked out of my amazon account. She’s constantly changing emails, and if she does pay, it takes months. Beware!

    Just got a 404 Error from the link, VinFang.

    And MorgueBuddy, it looks like the new account might be trying to use their itch.io site more? Their Facebook page is non-existent (even with attempting to just copy-paste it instead of clicking on the link from the profile), their DA is deactivated, I don't get anything from trying to search up their Dealers Den they have listed, but their TransFur they have linked has barely any information (albeit it does provide their email publicly if you are trying to re-establish contact?).

    She has been registering new accounts for months across sites, (Beware when FAF is back online, she frequent there) it would be helpful the next victim to screencap her OCs gallery / Google drive doc. So, she can be recognized from her avatars, cause I've seen her current pantherwolf icon & some base packs in her old toyhou.se. 

    Update: Bandcamp is not letting me checkout anything (giftcards, or no) after I used part of her giftcard balance, so I am pretty sure she put my account in negatives (my or anyone's labor is not worth a single dime to her)(╯-_-)╯╧╧

    Amazon refuses to do anything about the 200 gift card she paid me in and I sent back to her with her promise to send it through paypal. Don't let yourself be paid in gift cards! Only use paypal invoice and hire someone to draft a proper terms of service.

    Right now I have her through email and she has a few days to pay me half of what she owes me, so we'll see how that goes...  I have her email if anyone needs to get in touch

    I've been dealing with this person over the past week or so. I also accepted to work before I'd been paid anything. I do consultations and Alex booked a 2-hour one for Saturday 12th September. It quickly became clear she wasn't at home for the session, which struck me as odd. After the session I double checked my records as I suspected she hadn't paid yet and lo and behold, she hadn't, so I reminded her. She said she'd pay on Monday 15th. Monday came and went, and she didn't pay, but she did give me an email address to send a Paypal invoice to her, so I can confirm she has one of those. She's even viewed the invoice, but just hasn't paid.

     

    She quickly booked another 2-hour session which is due for this evening. Given her slowness with paying that seemed odd so I came online to check for Bewares, and here she is.

     

    I'm going to be online anyway at the time she's booked herself in for, so if she turns up for it I'm going to insist that she pays for last session plus this one up-front before I do any work.

     

    I'm sorry to hear that other people have been taken advantage of, and I'm going to see if I can secure any payment thanks to my commissions being time-specific.

    I would cancell any work with her, she’s back charged others on their bank and she’s ignoring my emails and canceled the payment reauest i sent, im trying to fo through a paypal dispute right now before she disappears again. Save yourself the regret and just dont work with her
