so if you've tried to contact these people and it didn't work (which it sounds like) then you can contact DA about these people. not sure how useful it'll be (i'm sure you don't need another rant about how the site is run :P ) but it's definitely worth a try. on the first page, the link "Help Desk" takes you to a contact form, and on the 2nd page, "customer service" takes you to another contact form. not really sure which one you want to use so i'll just share both.
FAQ #374: How do I settle a Commission dispute?
FAQ #238: How do I report people for abuse, harassment, or another issue I think is a problem?

you can also let other people know about these scammers here:

Aaaa oh nonono it's not you don't worry I promise!! :0

its just that I commished someone months ago and I went back to check on their account today and I noticed a bunch of ppl commenting on their profile "stealing art is really bad don't do it" or "hey you're an art thief...!" so me and like three other people just got duped by an art thief so that's great 

And another person like deleted their commission info journal...? Like I can't find it anywhere and I remember what it looked like and I remember commissioning them 
So I check out their account and find a journal that says "This is my to-do list. if I owe you a commission and I forgot please comment here!!" So I commented and reminded them but later found out they hid my comment and some other people's :P 

Plus some people owe me stuff from like November or February and such- I mean hey I'm not one to talk since sometimes I may draw something in between that's not a commission but if you're drawing hundreds of things and ignoring something a client asked for you months ago you should at least keep them updated...? 

This isn't directed towards any of my friends though because I know I have a friend on here I commissioned who's struggling with motivation and such and I don't want her to feel targeted- I'm mainly talking about strangers that I commissioned who I somehow trusted wayyyy too easily? I mean this doesn't apply to everyone because a lot of people I commissioned actually showed promise. It's the other people I'm worried about. 


So long story short I blew 80 points on scammers and possibly more.

Which is why from now on I'm no longer commissioning strangers and I'm only commissioning people I know and trust....

And I trust you aaaa :D I hope everything's going well with the move and stuff!!
