Beware for izzyideshi.

WHERE: Furaffinity

WHAT: Merchandise trade as agreed to in this journal: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/5126606/

WHEN:

October 6th, 2013: Izzy requests 2 badges and a full color picture in return for her buying the merchandise, I approve
Shortly after I produce the 2 badges (foolishly post them without confirmation of my item being bought) http://www.furaffinity.net/view/11877711
(at this point I am under the impression the item has been purchased as she mentioned earlier she would have to "wait till friday" to buy it, and friday had come and past)
November 14: I produce a sketch for the big picture and she approves it.. then claims she will send shirt soon but her mom is going into surgery. I am shocked to find out it's not sent yet.
December 1st: I request an update, she lets me know she was delayed sending because of the holidays.
January (uncertain date) She claims she was in a major car accident and is in the hospital (using furaffinity and posting journals while in the hospital? hrm..)
February 2nd: She claims she bought 2 shirts and needs my size and address AGAIN. I am confused because the ebay listing she was supposed to buy from is gone.. where did she get the shirts?
February 3rd: She claims she will send them really soon but she has to go to bed.
February 4th: A post on her facebook claims that she is taking a break from facebook and is only paying for commissions that have sent her invoices.

PROOF:

Her shouts on my furaffinity claiming car accident 1 month ago:

EXPLAIN:

I made a journal asking the public if anyone wanted to buy me a t-shirt (i don't have credit card right now) from ebay in return for artwork. Izzy replied and said she would be buying it that friday, so I told her to go ahead and note me with what she wanted. Assuming it had been sent, I produced 2 badges and posted them online, as well as the sketch for the big drawing.

Things started getting suspicious when she mentioned a family surgery as an excuse (possible.. but unlikely :S) then she mentioned another delay due to holidays? After the holidays I started pestering her more (I left a few shouts on her multiple profiles and sent a few notes) but still no merchandise. I believe it is very unlikely Izzy bought the shirt(s) at all. Another journal on an alternative account claims something about a sick dog. She also at one point told me she was in the hospital after a major car accident thats why she wasn't sending the shirts.

She has many many accounts and it looks like I am not the only one she is owing. Recently I found her main account of furaffinity to be suspended, as well as a "leaving facebook" message on her facebook that claims she was only going to pay for certain commissions. (She commissions a lot of artists)


My errors here:
- Producing artwork before confirmation of payment.
-TRUSTING too much.

Questions:
- Does anyone know why she was suspended?
- Does anyone else have experiences with her?
- Did those who were promised pokemon games in her raffle ever receive them?


Thanks for listening.

If you click her tags on here you'll be able to see why she was banned.

Welp.. now I feel silly. Guess I should have checked here first.

Oh jeez, not her again. She's a scam artist and has a long history of ripping off people all over the internet. Here's her feedback on PKMNCollectors, all negative.

She's been banned repeatedly for scamming but she keeps coming back.

It's extremely sad to see someone you were, kinda, friends with just not learn and continue to do these things.

Re: Pokemon Y Winner Here

I had been scammed by her - twice (first when she was going by Atlastendojima, then a few months later under her Izzyideshi handle) - and was unaware that they were the same person until just recently (neither of the names were listed here on A_B when I took those commissions from her, and came here to check if the latter name was listed when I had attempted to contact her a second time about the money she owed me and found her account had been suspended).

No great loss, though - she never got the original sketches (both of which had not been paid for); so the sketches were altered and later placed up for auction.

I also changed my commission policy to 'pay upfront' instead of 'pay upon sketch approval' to avoid situations like this again.

This fuckin' kid... :/

Let bazeel know about these accounts and he'll make sure they get what's coming to them, though it doesn't seem to do any good since she keeps showing up again.

Bazeel recently got booted from the FA admin team, so unfortunately he can't do much on this front anymore. :(

holy crap, just how many accounts does she have? I didn't know about even half of those, and I've been following her account jumping from the start. Wow...just...wow.

I'm glad you posted this.

Soon there wont be any names left in this speed. And think of all the emails she must use to create those accounts too. She needs a better hobby.

Is there actually any proof that the account belonging to her 'husband' isn't just a sockpuppet? Because I'm doubting that the husband and child are actually real. It's a pity FA doesn't do IP bans any more, because she's just going to keep making alts.

Possible proof she has a child: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/11774586/

Honestly I would not be surprised AT ALL if the husband doesn't exist. Unfortunately I've had lots of experience with delusional internet people and known users to create "best friend" user pages that are actually just them sockpuppeting. It's sad and weird and frustrating.

I was going to do a trade for her for some items too, but I never do any art until they show a screenshot for proof of purchase or whatnot.
Glad I didn't now! She kept telling me how it'd come, or how much she had plans for later business with me, but I'm glad I have never done any work for her at all..

Sorry to hear this happened to you tho :c No fun!
(And to others!)

I find it very unsettling that she wants/wanted to use some adoptables that were created by me and a friend as her "mascots". I'd rather not have the species I created associated with her name or any of the nasty reputation she's gotten for herself. :|

I can't believe she's still going around making accounts. I was scammed by her about 2 years ago when she was supposed to send me a badge I got in a raffle or something (I didn't pay for it but I was still disappointed). She kept saying her laminator didn't work, her baby was sick, etc. and then ignored my notes.

I'm sorry this happened to you and I really wish she would get IP banned. This is ridiculous.

Oh man...

Im gullible but to be honest. While I was working with her again, she was paying every friday or in full for about 2-3 months?

Then I guess she took on too much and just didnt have the funds in the end.

So she was doing the exact same thing that got her into trouble many, many times before because someone wasn't babysitting her?

That's not your responsibility. Stop trying to help someone who clearly can't be.
