Artist Beware: Pararipi/Prisma-Neko

Firstly I would like to say this is my first Beware post to Artist_Beware. I don’t use live journal so I apologize for any mistakes I might’ve made.

WHO: Pararipi on Furaffinity and Deviantart. Formerly Prisma-Neko.

Also goes by PrismaNeko on Twitter and Prismaneko/Prismaticneko on Tumblr.

WHERE: Furaffinity and then Deviantart.

2 Custom Adoptable “Glyphies” based on designs I already own.

WHEN: I first showed interest in buying adoptables from them on September 8th 2015. Sent the payment a few days later and did not receive any updates for almost a month.

TL;DR version:
I ordered two custom adoptables from Pararipi in early September. About a month passed with no communication from the artist. Was forced to make an account on a website I don’t use just to communicate with them. Was not on their to-do list. Looking closer it was revealed the artist is Prisma-neko, a person with a long history of owed work who was trying to hide from previous disgruntled cutomers.
