I for one am tired of the onslaught of insulting posts and even worse, the people who don't pay or try to rip you off once you have done your work.

I have created a network that helps inform others of people who may be doing things of this nature.

If you want to put a stop to this, or at least a dent in this nonsense and create a sense of growing awareness of who the culprits are, I ask that you join the site, anonymity is completely up to you, and you post your findings. This is not a request, simply letting others know that there is an avenue which we can take to voice information and not have our information shot down, while flagging theirs.

Thanks again to all who have already signed up.

Woww, that's a beatiful copy-writing.... so many powerful words just to end it up saying:
WORK FOR US FOR FREE , I wonder if you guys pay the rent with those beautiful poem.

Digital artists united, no work for free, no work for cents, no full time jobs with internships outfits,
expose the tricky scammers and abusers.

Let's begin to create a blacklist of tricky scammers/abusers:
Ian Mazursky from prepressexpress.com --- Abuser (create fake ability tests to get work for free from applicants)
Georgelias -- Astoria Queens - Abuser --- Hire for Graphic Arts training's and later after claims didn't learn or that was not what he was looking for and deny to pay.

Please colleagues let's get United, post your bad experiences, post your black list.
