Beware; Furbuy

Who - https://www.furaffinity.net/user/furbuy/ & http://www.furbuy.com/
Where - Via FA notes (Caps below)

I was recently contacted buy the FurAffinity account for Furbuy about hosting my auction on their website. The note was a typical copy/paste spam style note asking why I did not use their website, and asking how they could improve if it if I had issues.

I replied back, saying no one uses the website, (I've asked multiple artists and commissions who refuse to use it, plus every time I check the site, it's nearly empty) I also informed them that the times I used it back in the day, I was never paid, and outright scammed.

I was then sent a snarky reply, accused of lying, and what I think may be a threat? I am unsure. They tell me my business will fail. I do have an account, and I did in fact leave negative feedback for the buyers that refused to pay, and the time I was scammed it was after the artwork was completed. I was threatened in to a refund. I did not know about A_B at the time.

I sent a final reply telling them to cease contact, that their behavior would not get me to use their sirte, and that spam like ads via notes were against FA rules.
