[IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ!] A slight concern

So, this is more or less a rant journal, or more of a PSA. There is a User on DeviantArt known as CrimsonColt7. Now, you're probably wondering, "what happened to his policy of never mentioning someone he talks ill about?" Well, I just need to say that you should be aware of him and what he's trying to do.

About a week ago at 6:30 in the morning I checked DA and found a note. It was from CrimsonColt7 asking if I was open for requests or an art trade. Since time was tight, I said I could do an Art Trade with him but not a request. He then notified me he could only make cutie marks and logos. I thought to myself, "I could use a logo for a business if I make one," so I accepted that. Then... He rescinds the offer. No explanation, no nothing, as if to say "You know what, I'm going to try to weasel my way to getting a request." He then had the audacity to say that he'd post the 'trade' on his page, somethings I don't generally allow, since it's free booting. I said I'd have to deny the trade if he wasn't willing to put forth equal effort, and by God's honor, he wasn't willing at all. He pretty much BEGGED me to do the art for him, and when I finally responded with "You had your chance, I'll have to block you for trying to swindle your way to free art" he spouted some nonsense about bronies and pegasisters helping each other out(I am neither of which) and I'm fairly sure that he referenced some degree of hatred towards me on his profile afterwards.

Now you're thinking, "Why do I need to know this? How does it effect me?" If he gets around to you, he'll essentially try to cheat you out of your effort by switching around deals. Avoid him if at all possible.

I also feel that I need to say that you should NOT confront him! This will only lead to drama, confusion and a bad time for everyone. We all stay happier if you do not confront him. I only posted this journal to help every one of my watchers stay safe from this megalomaniac.



tl;dr You need to read, reading is good for the brain.

He still resurfaces occasionally, if memory serves. Though, I'm glad that he's out.

Block him ASAP. Don't respond to him, just block him if you haven't already.

Unluckily i responded. But i said i opened some kinda random requests Watchers only and im busy won't be taking any, then he said he's reached dA's limit. I hope things won't go wrong...

It's actually very annoying to receive such notes from a person you don't even know !

Lesson.

That's no lesson for someone who doesn't have Paypal. That guy's an outlier, one scammer among millions of legit people. Luckily he's been punished and will hopefully never come back.

He's been doing the same thing to a friend of mine. I did confront him, and he really is as dumb as a rock. He'll try to talk his way out of any situation, then later he'll delete the conversation and pretend you attacked him or something. Too bad for him, I screenshot the whole conversation so he couldn't make shit up.

If anyone else reading this has had an experience with him, feel free to note me about it. I intend to put an end to his harassment and scamming and would appreciate hearing from other people who've had similar experiences with him.

Ah, the sweet irony in his idiocy. He tries to be clever and swindle people but ends up swindled himself. It's hilarious, really.

People like him disgust me. He's super entitled and arrogant, and he shows no value for the art of the people he's requesting from and resorts to harassment when he doesn't get his way. 
I really don't want anyone else to be scammed or bothered by him at all. No hard-working artist deserves that kind of treatment.

I reported him and cited this journal and the comments for evidence, along with using the note logs. Here's hoping he'll be gone forever after this.

It'd be great if you could help spread this around. Hopefully it'll stop him from bothering more people.

The greasy bastard tried me too. Was real close to letting him down easy, then I did a google search because his name was familiar.

This guy is such an idiot. I don't think he'll last long in the real world, he can't blackmail people legally, and nobody will give anyone anything for free without due reason.

Did the exact same thing to me.  (requesting an entire comic for nothing) When I finally blocked him, he sent me hatemail from an alt Account with a middle finger for an icon.  What a guy, right?

He's nothing but an imbecile. I'd love to see him thrown into the real world, so I can see him realize that the world doesn't just give free stuff away.

He's done the same shit on me and my boyfriend. :( Expecting me to do him a whole hentai comic of his gary-stu for free. :no: I kept telling him no and he just couldn't take a hint.

Best you can do is block and report him for harassment. He's not respecting you and your boyfriends limits and rules, or either of you as people. Others have experienced the same from him.

I could try but I doubt dA cares. :( We're just gonna block his ass and move on.

Oh jeeze! He's been noting me constantly for the past week even though I've said explicitly I don't do requests or trades. Thanks so much for making this post! He's goin' on the block list, though I hate to block anyone.

Sometimes it's necessary, though. Block list is there for a reason, and with crooks like him we need to block them all. Glad I could be of help.
