Hehe, so this is my end of an “art trade” with XvSpitfirevX. I hope he likes it.
So this is just an info post in case anyone goes searching about his scam.
The user ~XvSpitfirevX on DeviantArt, also known as Forsaken’s Kinky Place (nsfw link) on tumblr is a scammer and liar. He extorts free art from artists under the guise of art trades. He also hides any comments which attempt to question this, or call him out on it.
Any user who is considering an art trade with XvSpitfirevX should be aware that you are being scammed.
If you have been affected by this piece of filth I suggest that you change the deviation file of your trade to something that expresses your displeasure at his actions and him in general, and link to this journal, or repost it to your own journal.
Sorry for the long post, I just think this is pretty important information since this user is a disgusting scumbag who’s wasted the time of dozens of people. If I can prevent even one person from wasting their time then it’s worth it.
Update: I have also been made aware that this lowlife is allegedly also commissioning people and refusing to pay...
Update: ~XvSpitfirevX has made a journal post saying how his tablet has been "broken" for a while now. This is clearly untrue as some of the art trades that have gone unfinished are more than a year old now.
Update: Apparently this guy previously threatened the mods of a tumblr account showcasing bad OCs. Regardless of your opinion on the tumblr account it's still really bad to threaten someone like that.
Update: His current excuse is "my tablet was broken". For that to matter it would need to have been broken for more than a year, despite him taking on new art trades in that time. It is clearly untrue.
