Kannos/Starfinder/-Star- Posting Again

I commented on an older A_B entry about this but thought I'd make it a post in case it was missed. Kannos/Starfinder appears to be posting again under the alias KannosWD on Sofurry. She is also on DA but I'm not sure how active she is there. She seems to be active on Sofurry though, as she is replying to notes and her art is in the featured section of the site.

Link: https://kannoswd.sofurry.com

Her journal reads: I'll be uploading here from now on, since I cant upload on IB anymore. If I owe you a commission note me here, I plan to have my backlog finished off by the end of the month!
Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

Strange. I thought she had a job and didn't need to do commissions anymore, and that was why she'd left commissioners hanging on IB?

Well, for anyone in AB who is still owed work, I hope you can get what you're owed via one of these new avenues.

At least people know where to find her now and maybe get their money back... highly doubtful.

It sounds like she's running out of sites to scam people with.

I should also mention she made an FA account with the same name and posted the same message in each submission claiming "she was posting to get people's attention so she could track down who she owes".

The FA account was promptly suspended though.
Jul. 17th, 2015 12:54 am (UTC)
It was suspended probably because of ban evading, which is a bannable offense.

And now the only jouranl is ... https://www.sofurry.com/view/886968 "Opening up for a few commissions, anything goes. Please see the image for prices/details."

Mmhm.... :/

https://kannos.sofurry.com/ ... Two accounts?
Jul. 17th, 2015 12:38 am (UTC)
That one appears to be old. Could be that she lost the log in info.
Jul. 17th, 2015 01:19 am (UTC)
Man that girl is never gonna learn, is she?
Jul. 17th, 2015 05:01 pm (UTC)
As long as she keeps scamming people out of hundreds, let alone thousands, of dollars, she probably won't learn from her mistakes.

Looks like she's got another weasyl account at https://www.weasyl.com/~kannoswd as well. But it appears to already be abandoned.
Not sure why, since she still has the Kannos account without the wd part.

She did mention on IB shortly before her ban that she was having issues with impersonation. She could be parking accounts to prevent imposters from springing up on other sites.
Jul. 17th, 2015 02:03 am (UTC)
She'll have them all finished by the end of the month, yeah, okay, sure. She must be working from a different backlog list than the ones I've seen victims compile over the years.
I'll believe it when I see it. And probably not even then.

She's a scammer, no bones about it. And the fact that her fans don't question her site bans just goes to show how gullible you have to be to give her money. She's not going to refund anyone or finish any commissions because her attitude appears to be "I'm awesome, give me your money for being awesome and I might consider doing some art for you if I feel like it but even if I don't then I deserve free money anyway because I'm awesome."

She's not going to learn until people either stop commissioning her or she gets banned everywhere.
Jul. 17th, 2015 03:41 pm (UTC)
She won't learn until she gets sued to next week and back.
Jul. 17th, 2015 05:41 pm (UTC)
It probably won't ever happen. To take legal action is expensive both financially and time-wise, even in small claims court. Plus you have to factor in the nature of her work and what the commissioner is buying, which would look really questionable and be embarrassing to draw any form of attention to in an environment outside of the fandom. Not to mention that all of these transactions have primarily taken place over the internet, which is a whole 'nother giant mess to deal with. Considering that most people have probably given her less than $500, it's not worth the effort, even to prove a point. It'd just be a hollow victory.
Jul. 17th, 2015 05:44 pm (UTC)
She has clients that have paid well over $500 that she hasn't delivered on. Some of those bewares are still unresolved here.
Jul. 18th, 2015 07:04 am (UTC)
At this point she's probably at felony levels of scamming.
Jul. 17th, 2015 06:13 pm (UTC)
Sigh :/
Jul. 18th, 2015 01:10 am (UTC)
Has anyone actually taken her to court yet?
Jul. 18th, 2015 07:01 am (UTC)
A few people have said they were going to but nothing ever came of it. It's probably the only way to get her to stop tbh.
Jul. 18th, 2015 06:25 pm (UTC)
I think she pays people off when they threaten legal action.
Jul. 18th, 2015 06:52 pm (UTC)
I'd like to see Judge Judy take this case. =P
Jul. 18th, 2015 05:16 pm (UTC)
She's a scammer, but is anyone thinking this might NOT be her, but an impersonator? There appears to be no new art, and IB I believe had caught an impersonator trying to solicit commissions under her name. An easy thing to do, and perhaps easy to get away with since "Kannos rips people off" is almost expected.
Jul. 18th, 2015 06:08 pm (UTC)
The only person who can confirm that is Star herself, unfortunately. Until SF staff can confirm it, we won't be announcing anything.
