Beware: Pyroscale, impersonator/Thief

I know impersonation and unauthorized use of character is not the usual thing to be posted here, but i think this situation has gone far enough to require it.



WHO: Pyroscale, also using "PyxaronAD", "Pyxaron_Draptor", "Pyxaron_the_draptor" and other variations of my name. Goes by the name "Jonathan Tremblay" on facebook, paypal and some other sites, but i have no idea if that name is a fake or not, as it is a bit of a "John Smith" name here.

WHAT: This person has been, under his own name or using new accounts with name similar to mine, been commissioning pictures involving my character, and claiming ownership of my character. He's been using a copy of my refsheet with the name removed ( http://i1110.photobucket.com/albums/h448/Pyroscale/draptor_refsheet_resized_zps5c2b79fd.jpg ) to do so, and using various accounts with a name similar to mine to contact artists. Most of the commissions posted on FA involving my character that weren't authorized have been taken down, but i keep regularly getting news of pictures involving my character being drawn or uploaded. Many other characters have also been involved in those pictures without consent, or while unaware of what the picture would actually be.

WHEN: This has started over a year ago, trouble tickets were opened last year on FA and still are being opened there and on various other sites as things are discovered.

PROOF: Most of the art has been taken down from FA, but some remain on other sites. A good example would be ( http://profile.aryion.com/profile/Pyxaron_draptor ) as well as ( http://profile.aryion.com/profile/Pyroscale ) and his sofurry and inkbunny account listed above.

EXPLAIN: The person in question simply continues to contact artists to commission them some "gift art" involving my character in some sexual or vore-related situation, asking it to be kept a secret not to ruin the surprise. Alternatively, he will contact them using an account with a name similar to mine, claiming it to be my "adult account", asking to commission once again pictures involving my character.

I've been doing my best to contact artists in time to get those pictures cancelled, or admins to get the pictures taken down from his own galleries, once made aware of them.

I'm posting this in hope of making people aware of the situation, and keep more of those unwanted pictures involving my character from being drawn.

My own FA, as reference, is https://www.furaffinity.net/user/pyxaron/ and my refsheet is here; https://www.furaffinity.net/view/1065698/ and was originally drawn by Rah-Bop and uploaded to DA here: http://rah-bop.deviantart.com/art/Pyxaron-refsheet-67579636 if this might help establish the ownership of the character.
