Let me take you back to roughly 2+ years ago, when a good friend hired Darius Koopa aka Edgar D. Martinez to do a commission for him at Midwest Furfest. After handing over a $50 he received a business card and a receipt. Then never heard back from him again, he did send out his own letters to the address on the card, after hearing nothing back, He then contacted a lawyer friend, who did sent a letter on his behalf, but still like his own letters he heard nothing back at all. The same could be said about Darius Koopa’s FA page demanding answer only lead to becoming blocked.
So you might be asking yourself is this Darius Koopa aka Edgar D. Martinez really as bad as he sounds. In fact it is the worse I ever seen in my lifetime. It seems according to Artists Bewarehttp://artists-beware.livejournal.com/608294.html that Darius Koopa aka Edgar D. Martinez has a long track record extending all the way back to 2012 of taking money for commissions and never delivering. In fact I heard this same thing again and again, no matter which site I was on. One post on FA even made an allegation
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2058149/dmk/fleecingbydmk.pdf he was invloved in a cancer scam. After all the complaint is 53 pages long, and there has to be something to it. But the biggest news actually came from this same friend, later confirmed by me that he was banned from the dealers area at Midwest Furfest. Due to an excessive number of complaints.
Speaking of which I been to both his FA and Sofurry pages and have seen these same complaints taken down on a daily basis.
It was only during recent at a furry bowling event, I learned from another good friend of 2 things. #1 Darius Koopa aka Edgar D. Martinez was at MFF last year #2 Fully confessed that he wasn’t a artist. In fact all of his works are stolen. A fact which you will see in the following conversations I had with him he never denies.
So I began the hunt for Darius Koopa aka Edgar D. Martinez which was fairly easy. I used Google, I also found out this man has a patreon page, as well as being on Sofurry, Facebook as well as FA. I also found a HUGE number of complaints against him, and charges of Petty Theft made over and over again. A simple Google search revealed that much. So that is when I decided to go on the attack on his profile page on Sofurry.
This was the intial message he sent me. He assumed I was my friend. I continued that deception with full consent of my friend in order to get his money back..
I fully admit the reason he contacted me was that I was calling him a crook on his profile page, he quickly gave in.
After nothing arrived at the address I sent him, I sent another threat. This time by Private Message. He quickly caved in again and sent me proof that he actually sent it.
I admit saying he had Warrants Out for his Arrest was something I was unsure about, as I did hear plenty of rumors, most of them from the staff at MFF. I wondered how could someone have warrants when all they are guilty of is petty theft.
In this message to me he responds to 2 things I mentioned. 1 was a post made my a member of the Midwest Furfest Board on their Facebook page, and of how this crook ripped them off for 100s.
The other is the name I blacked out, is another one of his victims, Who I know personally and that victim does have the same worthless receipt. But yet he denies knowledge of that victim.
To see the Pure Arrogance of this man you just have to see the last message he sent me. Then compare it to the very 1st. Darius Koopa aka Edgar D. Martinez is the worse kind of crook out there. One who can’t believe they are in the wrong.
The outright lies are rampant in that post. As previous stated he is not wanted at MFF for any reason. In fact no one would ask a man who is banned from the dealers area, a fact I invite you to check out for yourself. Besides why would they ask someone to volunteer a con where they has a chance of being arrested.
In fact my friend, even though he has his money back still plans on pressing charges against Edgar D. Matinez if he sees him there at MFF. The same could be said of at least 30 of his victims who all told me the very same thing.
Besides if he was as honest as he says, why did it take until Sept. 21 before the check finally arrived.
On a personal note: No one should have anything to do with this man. As I continue to find victims everywhere. I believe it is only a matter of time Edgar D. Martinez pays for his crimes.
