Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

-SIGNAL BOOST-

Okay, so many of my watchers on deviantART are already aware of this, but last month I was scammed for thousands of dollars by a user named Pixlett / ToxicMutagen. (They both use the same PayPal address) Pixlett has since deactivated her account.

My account of the fraud:

[ Part 1] [ Part 2 (Today) ]

Pixlett bought some artwork from me for very large sums of money. Then, a few months later, I notice that a couple grand went missing from my PayPal, because she filed a credit card chargeback against me, claiming that she never got the item. Obviously, it was digital artwork, so there was no physical item to ship. She did this for every single piece of artwork she bought from me, and even after backing myself up with a ton of evidence, PayPal ruled in her favor.

And now, today, it has happened AGAIN. Pixlett has filed MORE chargebacks against me, putting me into negative $2,000 in my PayPal account. I start school in a week and need money to pay for my new textbooks, supplies, and gas, but looks like that’s not gonna happen thanks to this fraud.

I have set up a PayPal Donation button on my page, where you can help me out. Even just a dollar helps. Small amounts add up quickly, and I need to get out of the negatives as soon as possible.

I apologize, because I never ask for help, but this is just beyond my capacity of fixing in such a short amount of time. Several other people were also affected by this scammer, so please consider helping them out too.

Thank you! ;u; If you have any questions or concerns, you can message me on here or on my dA.

FUCKING SIGNAL BOOST THIS

ALSO DO NOT TAKE COMMISSIONS OR SELL ADOPTABLES TO THE PERSON MENTIONED

also - wow … WOW .. I´m fucking mad about this person and paypal - this is really fucked up. this is really a slap in the face for digital artists …

Signal boosting, this is not cool.  

Reblogging for relevance; this is terrible… and it seems to happen with alarming frequency; ourselves, as well as several other artists who deal in physical media were scammed on etsy last year the same way.

One of the complicating factors in a chargeback scam is that ultimately the decision lies with the credit card company (at least, this is what paypal told us). The cc company has zero reason to rule against their cardholder, who they will potentially lose as a client if they do.

One suggestion for those dealing in digital art: for high price point commissions, send a USB with the file through registered mail. Its STILL not a guarantee against fraud, but it gives you extra proof of delivered goods at least.
So sorry that the OP is going through this!

Signal boost because chargeback scammers are bottom feeding scum.

Oh FFS. Is there any alternative to PayPal? I know I’ve been asking the same question for years but some things got a come along, right?

Look at these guys, watching me watching them.

Good Sunday. Midday I way lying on the sofa in a nightdress drinking a can of lager, eating fancy pretzels and counting my money from yesterdays art sale. I have humble aspirations in life but I think today I managed to live up to my own idea of successful living.

Screaming J in this picture is exactly everything I want to be.

As close as you will ever be to a nuclear explosion

THIS IS FUCKING TERRIFYING

No thank you.

The columns of smoke in the foreground are telephone poles boiling

This is way cooler to look at than it should be

Science side of Tumblr would like to add:

Heat is generally transmitted in 3 forms: conduction, convection, radiation.

The fact that the telephone poles and wires are boiling away well before the shockwave hits them indicates that the heat from the explosion has not reached them by convection (much slower than the speed of sound) or by conduction (at best, comparable to the speed of sound), but purely by radiation. In other words: the explosion is bright enough to boil everything.

reblogging again for what engineer—cat said

If Blake's 7 was made in 1938 instead of 1978... →

originallonemagpie:

So, yeah, I was chatting elsewhere the other day about this, and the thought has stuck with me, so I’m going to have to go along with casting a 1938 Blake’s 7…

So, in order of introduction:

Roj Blake - Obviously the studio would insist on a hero type like Errol Flynn,…

Always remember that women who call themselves feminists will be accused so many times of being man-haters, but when a man kills women just for being women, he is called mentally unwell, and a madman rather than a woman-hater or misogynist. 

Happy birthday to me, 30 is the new poodle.
