Beware: SoraKitty

WHO: SoraKitty

WHERE: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/sorakitty/

WHAT: Entered an art contest with the prize being $50.

WHEN: around 11 months ago. The journal http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/2383472/ (it says waiting for mine but she never updated it.)

PROOF: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/2383472/ Journal with the entries
http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/2527594/ - she moves out.
http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/3035986/ - she comes back after around 6 months. Says she'll post the winner in Feb.
http://www.furaffinity.net/full/5897474/ - my entry
I've sent her countless notes all of which have been read and unanswered.

EXPLAIN: I'm not exactly sure how many art entries she had for her contest but I know it was over 5, but even if only 2 people enter you need to be able to pay up if you have a contest. As of now she hasn't paid anyone. I noted the people I knew actually submitted art and asked them if she may have personally told them they won and paid them then - but none of them were contacted. At this point she is active and does not seem to be willing to finish the contest any time soon - considering she's ignored my notes over the past years. They have been all basically the same thing, but here is the most recent one -> http://i.imgur.com/R3l7H.png

I'm not sure what can be done when she wont respond to my email - for all we know she could have chosen a tattoo design already and had it done without paying anyone :/

EDIT (4/17/12)
I would also like to make it clear that I'm posting this because several people, entering a contest assuming one person will win and get $50, saw no results. This is a warning so people can be careful about entering her contests in the future.
