Need Advice

Some time ago, a person came here accusing me of ripping her off. She posted her arguement, and in the end the consenses was that it was pretty much a commuication issue, and things just should have ended differently. I would like to thank those who participated their opinions. They were very helpful.

Now I have a new nemesis that claims that I ripped him/her off back in DA. by the name of WildKittenpeach. I have no idea who this person is, I've only had a problem with the previous person so I am left to assume that it is the same person. Wildkittenpeach or (Lisa)  just became a member today and went right after me. Wild has no story to back her up, no artwork, present her profile is empty. And She has no evidence that we even spoke.

Why? I was addressing a problem that another person had a problem with a seemingly scam artist by the name of "j4yzk" or "jkayGFX"  I told this person of my experience and advised them to post here here. The previous person got upset although I didn't mention her name at the time. 

This is defamation of character, although I can't prove that this is the same person. Maybe it is J4zyk or jkayGFX. (Google the names, they have had complaints.) just looking to start trouble. But it smells just like the previous person who I had a problem with. She is known to be manipulative.

What should I do? I could complain to DA but they never do anything.

As manipulative as the person is that you had an issue with before? That's not her MO, I don't think it is her and I've been dealing with her for a long time. No, whatever issues Ebony has? She doesn't pull things like this.

It's more likely it's someone trying to start drama, have you had issues with other artists since? or have you fallen out with any friends?

Edit: The scammed guy you talked to? He has got a comment on the front of his page from wildkittenpeach that seems to indicate that wildkittenpeach is "j4yzk" or "jkayGFX".

Some digging has turned up the answer to the mystery.

Wildkittenpeach?

Is neither Ebony nor "j4yzk" or "jkayGFX".

Wildkittenpeach is the person "j4yzk" got the logo off for the site he has yet to finish for his customer, apparently "j4yzk" has told wildkittenpeach that the customer has not paid him and therefore he cannot pay wildkittenpeach for the logo.

As for why wildkittenpeach is attacking you? That I have no idea about.

jkayGFX was paid in full
jkayGFX is not WildKittenpeach and jkayGFX was paid in full.

i have paypal and wesetern union receipts.

As for the logo, it has nothing to do with jkayGFX. He didn't steal that logo. I gave it to him.

Please, guys, don't make this story more complicated than it is.

jkayGFX does all the designs himself. He doesn't steal other people's work.

He does not answer emails, he does not return phone calls, unless he gets paid twice the amount we agreed upon. He was paid 400 and he wanted close to 800. He said he would finish the design after I pay him 400. I paid him 400 and now he is asking for another 400. That's not going to happen.

Re: jkayGFX was paid in full

Hence why I said "apparently" because that is what wildkittenpeach is claiming happened.

Fair enough
If it isn't her, then Ok. Although I will say that as soon as she and I bumped heads again "Wildkittenpeach" signed up as new memeber of DA to say I "scamed" him the same way I supposingly "scamed" her. It just seemed too convenient with the timing. I have no enemies in DA. If anything, its been good with other artists and me. My future jobs have been through contracts. Got me three satisfying commission work :) in the process of number 4.

I thank you for your input.

Re: Fair enough
Is it possible that Wildkittenpeach is a friend or fan of your previous accuser? Sometimes fanclub obsessers will go out of their way to defend their idol or attack someone their idol had prior issues with.

Re: Fair enough
That was also sitting in the back of my mind as a possibility. Unfortunately I can't prove that either.

But... neither of you even have art posted. ._.

He doesn't have any art up because dredwalker isn't an artist, he uses dA to hire artists to do work for him.

dredwalker, please
dredwalker,

I know jkayGFX and WildKittenpeach are different people.

These are two completely different stories.

It's actually kind of surprising to me that you try to claim that they are the same person. They aren't even the same sex.

jkayGFX is an italian guy that I worked with for three years.

I was ripped off by jkayGFX in a different context. He refuses to finish the project unless he is paid significantly more...

Re: dredwalker, please

Frag, there's a history here you don't know.

dredwalker didn't suspect jkaygfx and wildkittenpeach were the same person, he suspected that wildkittenpeach was really ebony since wildkittenpeach attacked him out of nowhere just like ebony did once.

Re: dredwalker, please
I read this in the deviantArt forum already.

He could suspect wildkittenpeach is ebony-chan but jkayGFX has nothing to do with this.

I don't know if ebony-chan has the right to complain about dredwalker, and I don't know if dredwalker has the right to say this about ebony-chan.

I do know, however, that ebony-chan or wildkittenpeach is not jkayGFX. It's not his style.
