I deeply apologize for posting this late but alas, class had started back up, along with some other things, and I ended up nuking the original file in my stash that had this information. These were the few I could remember off the top of my head.


Users posted below have evidence that either heavily suggest they are a scammer or are known and have proof of scamming habits. Not everyone on this list scams on purpose. Links will not be provided to their pages
It is NOT ok to harass or leave cruel messages on any of the listed users' pages/tumblrs/furaffinitys/etc. Harassing those posted will not be tolerated.

My friend MoonSaphirre got a note from a person named CreamyAkumu and it said:

Hi, I just saw your art and it's so cute and cool ^^!
I wanna try doing a smexy, dirty roleplay with you, but I'm soo shy *Pounce hugs you down* Mrawr >/////

And that person sent her some kind of link.

The account has been deactivated, but I think they usually make a new account some time after :/ so this is just a warning I guess

About the comment below me:
It's false alarm, it was only me. That was an earlier account I made but lost the password for it, then suddenly remembered when I made this one. I wanted to quickly check out if those artists/groups are still active, but I pressed submit comment instead of preview. Anyways, I didn't need that account anymore.
