When: March 7th, 2015
I got a note from grifsnuff, asking for four reference sheets. At first I was pretty excited but then I checked their profile to find it (at the time) completely empty. Nothing on their description, no submissions, no favorites, and no watches. I was pretty suspicious but gave them the benefit of the doubt and noted them back asking what they would like. After that I ran a Google search on their name to see what else I could find, and that's when I saw griffsnuff's deviantart gallery. I was pretty sure then that I had run into someone pretending to be them but I waited.
Then I received this note. In the note it links to these four submissions below for the reference sheets they wanted.
However they were all the download versions of the links so that I could not view the actual artist.
So I sent a note to griffsnuff alerting them on this thief and asking if that was them. They confirmed in this note that it is not them and to report it.
I have since reported this person, asking them to be banned. However I know how long it can take to get through trouble tickets and so I wanted to warn people now. I know most people are generally pretty good at looking this sort of thing up, but I know they are adding more to their profile (as of posting this, they have some info up on their profile) to make it look legit. So this is a warning to NOT do business with this person.
