No kidding? How to you trace that user to this? I almost did a commission for her; if this is the case then I dodged a bullet.

Well - I can confirm that psudonym (Hannah Ellis), they used it for one of the drawings they commissioned off me

(You got a link to the account that requested from you so we can post it here?)

heres a nice little blog from 2017 on the artist formerly known as the snake whisperer. lets you know the depths of their remorselessness.
https://www.deviantart.com/ajthe90skid/ ... -704683094

Which, of course, linked me back to their fanfiction page
which they have changed from Amy Blackshire.
(I am getting a little amusement out of this)
changed their name to 'Nice try Riraito' on one of their active accounts before burning it of its current contents. Petty... but I got a giggle out of it.
here's the current link so you can have a bit of a laugh yourselves
https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7016867/

also heres another old account of theirs on reddit
https://www.reddit.com/user/Anacondrix/

Its also probably worth noting that this individual has previously started up straw-man accounts to harass those that call them out on their bullshit. I'd suggest keeping your eye out for new accounts that they start up.
Judging by their previous actions and willingness to prey on others, I don't expect them to cease any time soon, or of their own volition.

can't believe I missed this one
an Eka's portal page thats still up
https://aryion.com/g4/user/JadeW33

has also identified on discord as
Kyla Winters#5111
and
Betty Mors
Kylaaaaa23#5111

most of these profiles are in disuse, but it seems wise to list them. (they seem to jump from profile to profile every other month.)

The account was online last July 9th, so I don't think they're inactive at all, and likely still preying on other individuals. I'd get admins involved with this ASAP.

Animagra? >.> >.> I recognize that NAME!!! That's the bitch that was talking shit on my blog posts about Coronavirus when this all began! I wish I could say I'm surprised that shes a damn scammer. You can't trust someone that believes everything the mainstream media says without doing their own research. >.> Wow! I need to keep tabs on all the false aliases she uses then!

Oh yeah - I got scammed by Animagra as well, but they covered their tracks before I could report them...

EDIT: Wow, another topic I posted in died instantly. Why am I nowhere near surprised?

Just a word of advice to those paying for things - use paypal. They are fairly good at claim disputes and getting money back. Also don't be afraid to call credit card and demand money back if things are not done/delivered in an agreed upon state.... also if you can, don't pay for it all up front. Learned this the hard way at conventions.

While my commissions are closed right now, get into the habit of having people pay upfront first. At the very least have people pay half up front and half after completion, also network.

You get a interest for a commission from someone check their account page, see if they have anyone else they have commissioned talk to those people see how it went with them.

Scam artists exist in all communities, it may be a little uncomfortable now to be little heavy handed in protecting yourself but over time you build a trust with repeat commissioners, and you wont find yourself in a shitty place if you do get scammed.

I just don’t get it. Why is it that when I try to report something like this, I’m either ignored or insulted? This double standard is inexcusable.

Before this topic even existed, I attempted to let the admins know of Animagra’s scam. But the admins wouldn’t listen to me. Then again, lots of people don’t have enough compassion for that.

Ah yes I've heard of this person before. I remember someone else talking about them on DA, and said they'd found an instagram (found the thread: https://www.deviantart.com/disapointing ... -755696534) and that was a couple of years back. With their detective work they swear he's a bloke called Julian, and the Amy Porter name and cutesy female persona is a fabrication to suck people in. Some of the sock puppet comments on that thread state it's more than one person and brag about figures extorted.

He's/they've been doing this for years by the sounds of it. I recognise half those sock puppet account names.

well - look at who I found again. can't keep scum down by the looks of things. It only took a few minutes of idle googling to get a hit this time.
good ol animagra setting up shop again at deviant art using a known alias.
https://www.deviantart.com/mrs-peril-writer
It's an old alias of theirs - and the subject matter, and accusative writing style in the blogs match the ol' blowhard's gaslighting perfectly.
