Hello guys. I just thought I should let you know of a scam artist on dA; Pixlett/ToxicMutagen
While they might've deactivated, they still might be on the prowl, so be careful and weary. This person has scammed over $5000 out of people through commissions and adoptables including one of my friends
More about them:
Pixlett strikes again.I didn't realize exactly how much art I had sold to Pixlett / ToxicMutagen and she filed another $2,000+ against me just now. /:
Oh my gosh, I am SO done. Fml. My patience has been tried and tested, but I'm at a loss.
This totals THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS that Pixlett has robbed from me.
It's beyond stressful and I seriously can't afford this right now. I honestly don't think anyone could.
The following people have also been chargebacked by Pixlett as of today, August 13:
Interestingly enough, I believe I have found "Pixlett"'s personal Facebook.
At least, I am 99% sure this is her.
Pixlett was stupid enough to file chargebacks against people who shipped her PHYSICAL items, so we have an address that either she lives at or visits regularly. The address was then googled and traced to her "Hra
SCAMMER PIXLETT SPREAD LIKE WILDFIREEdit: If you take commissions or make adopts please do not let the users Pixlett or ToxicMutagen buy from you.

I'm now in the negatives in Paypal due to the chargebacks, and sadly Paypal does NOT cover digital goods (including art) so I won't be getting this money back.
They are doing this to other users/my dA friends as well.
Here's just 3 of the chargebacks they sent me to show as proof. (They have spent thousands on my art, their paypal email is email@example.com)
As you can see, I tried to provide evidence for one of them (still have many to go through)
Anyways, as this is a clear breach of my Terms of Service, I'm reclaiming ALL of their Sushi Dogs + an adopt that they purchased made by myself and ka

Thanks Lhuin for pointing out their account details once again. It looks like i've been scammed by the same person (known as (TonixMutagen or Pixlett) as mentioned in the below mentioned. The name and similarities just add up too much to be coincidental!
I recently had someone purchasing two hand-made plushies from my Etsy shop and not a week later after shipping them, they opened a chargeback for one of the two plushies through PayPal with the reason that the transacti
