The Pixlett Scam (resolved?)

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 13, 2014, 10:03 AM
Today I've seen several journals showing the absolute heartbreak of so many artists whom use adoptables as a means for living. (Be it: Rent, Food, Basics such as sketchbooks and other materials) All who've been placed into debt by a single person, Pixlett :iconpixlett:

Below I have placed several Journal entries of those who've been scammed, any donations or purchases of their other adoptables (WITH the full intent of keeping them) Would be greatly appreciated, even if it's just a lousy measly penny. It'll help them. (*Note: dA points are not useful in these circumstances)
Pixlett ResolvedI don't know how many people will view this, but can you all please get this out to everyone?
Paypal is looking into the issue. They will reimburse or have reimbursed the scammed artist. They will also revise the rules of the chargeback so that the issue will never happen again.
 <--- RECENT UPDATE.

PIXLETT CHARGEBACK:new: thanks to some lovely people, my negative balance is resolved (: 
please consider helping any of the others listed on this journal! :new:
:new: i've set up a donation pool to help out our fellow artists affected by this! :new:

if you are a part of the adoptable community, chances are, you've heard of Pixlett.
Pixlett
:iconpixlett:
she has caused witchpaws over 5.000 dollars alone, and many others 100 - 600$
right now, witchpaws has a donation fund going on: 

sukibelle has been hit with a 360$ charge, she is reselling her sushi dog here: 

i've also been hit, but only for 36$
i have this adopt set up: 

if you purchase any of these adopts, i'll draw a colored sketchy midbi of them as a thank you
another person is selling their ocs because of the chargebacks as well

and this deviant is accepting donations for their 100$ chargeb
fuckWell just when you think all the drama is over with Pixlett that bitch finally charged back on me :/ im negative 209.00 and i just recieved a commission that was eaten up by the negative balance *was 272.00* here is proof:

the one not blocked out was what was charged back to me, i still have to pay gas money and my bank account only has 60.00 left in it :/ idk what to do, i called paypal and they told me i wouldnt have to worry, i didnt screen shot the comment saying she received the item cause  they said not to worry and now her account is closed, ugh idk what to do DX... i had plenty of money and was fine but now i might be fucked for the month and its only the 13th, idk what to do guys, i really dont :c all my money on my paypal * had 65.00 and then a 33.00 commission* was supposed to help with gas :c so im not sure and im freakin out cause i know that with witchpaws the credit card company sided with p
I really need help..So pretty much everyone knows of the Pixlett  scams... So, the compete chargeback finally hit me and I am out a good chunk of money. What I took as a "financial savior" has pretty much devoured through my bank account.
Now, its not as bad as witchpaws or Kitsurie  (;; im sorry my loves I wish I could help  you guys out cause holy moly)
For some people's 215 dollars (the complete amount taken from me) is a tough blow but, not a killer. 
For my family- It sorta is.
We live in my grandma's house and care for it for her while she is in arizona being polyamorous . My mom live paycheck to paycheck. Generally before we are paid again, my mom and I have about 20 bucks between us. That is to our name. In all of our pockets and both of our bank accounts.
We have our lives carefully planned out. and as many of you know, I work my ass off to help support us the best I can. I have a job that gives me bad work anxiety. And generally when I am home I am workin
SCAMMER PIXLETT SPREAD LIKE WILDFIREEdit: ToxicMutagen has deactivate their account, I hope we find more information and get this person. She will probably make another DA account or in other websites, please be careful!
Edit:
 If you take commissions or make adopts please do not let the users Pixlett or ToxicMutagen buy from you. They will pay after a few days, BUT they will issue a credit card chargeback on the purchase. (They "share" a Paypal name/email, so I am suspicious that it is just the same person who moved accounts)

An artist was scammed for thousands of dollars by a user named Pixlett / ToxicMutagen. Pixlett has since deactivated her account.
She has scammed more artist at this point, probably over 20 artist, including me! There has been so many journals and people suffering because of this person!
Here are some journals

.Ugh...I've been on the phone with my friends crying for the past half hour...
This is just too much for me to handle right now....
School starts in less than 2 weeks and I am going to need so much money to pay for all my new supplies and textbooks, my gas/parking....this seriously could not be worse timing.
I'm sorry.....I feel like a terrible person asking for help. I try very hard to be completely self-sufficient mentally/emotionally/financially. But despite what many people on here think, I do not have a lot of money, and $2,000 is not a small amount to just have robbed back you out of the blue.
If you would like to donate, even just a dollar, my paypal is happyrainpuddle@yahoo.com ;-;
Seriously...anything is beyond appreciated in this stressful time.
I need to get out of the negatives as soon as I possibly can. /:
( If you can't donate, could you please reblog this signal
