Newcon PDX pt 2: Meltdown/abandon ship edition

Newcon aka Anime PDX is an anime convention in Portland, Oregon. The convention head has not only cheated guests and individuals out of payment every year, but they have also personally gaslit, cheated, stolen from, attempted rape, and defrauded people in the Portland cosplay community.

The convention is committing payroll tax fraud, misallocating funds on purpose. In addition, they recently switched from a "nonprofit" organization to a "for profit" organization, but are running under an expired business license. The convention head is embezzling money from the convention by using the Newcon PayPal for his own personal banking/fun money. He has made a living out of dodging lawsuits and leeching off of innocent people, leaving them in the dust when it's time to move on to the next group.

Every time when under enough pressure as to why the fuck Newcon hasn't paid their bills, the convention will issue an excuse that retreads the same half assed apology about disorganization, citing "miscommunication", and that they are a "young convention" of 6 years. This is a pattern of behavior, and they're going to keep at it for as long as they can. The convention will only pay once it's threatened with legal action or actually sued.

Since the last thread, artists and vendors are canceling tables, the Portland Lolita community has boycotted future attendance, guests are backing out, and an executive has quit. Keep the momentum going, spread the word, don't let this convention continue to steal money.

What do you guys do about costumes/props/pictures being used and not credited properly? Not the whole China-stole-my-picture-for-cheap-advertising but actual big name cosplayers not giving credit when it's due. How do you guys deal with that? Pic unrelated.
