Chris, I just posted about this on the "Fans of Monica Rial" and "The Anti-Impostor VA Task Force" Facebook groups.

This is pretty disgusting. ([Edit]: snipped. Please keep things civil. Errinundra.) He didn't just ask for nudes and suggestive posing, but asked for under aged things of this nature. What scum would even think to exploit a fellow anime fan's common interest like that? It's unthinkable.

This is terrifying. Look how horrifying the internet has become because now we have sick people trying to con people to creating porn. It's sickening. I hope this imposter is caught soon.

I wonder which ANN staffer he tried to impersonate. Too bad it seems there isn't much legal recourse you can take beyond removing his e-mails and various accounts. There's a huge difference between having people trying to guest anime quotes about fisting someone and stooping to this level.

Seriously? What the actual hell? This is something you read in bad ero-manga. Who the hell does that? Jesus!

welp well thats disturbing. People like this should be caught and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

As much as i'd like to help get this guy caught I don't think he'll ever contact me seeing as i dont cosplay... and I'm not exactly good looking... oh yeah and i'm a dude.

times like this a death note and/or the eyes of a death god would be pretty useful *play laugh track here*

I wish there was some way in alerting the police about this ANN-impersonating perpetrator. It's people like him that make the Internet a terrible place.

Murder isn't a good way to address this. Jail and proper fines are more appropriate. Cosplayers should also be informed to, under no circumstances, expose themselves; I think that no ANN critic would ever ask for that, only a creep would so something like that.

I honestly don't think I'll ever understand the mindset of people like this. The idea of doing something like this wouldn't even occur to me, and then there is a whole list of things that should tell any rationale person that this is just plain wrong to do.

Never got cosplay photography. That aside, it's no surprise that there would be a few pedos out there who would try to socially target ANN considering how long ANN has been around.

With that said, a few folks in the thread asked if the polcie were involved. I'm sure considering a large part of the demographic of the message board here is likely under 21, I would not at all be surprised if FBI already routinely monitors these forums (or even elsewhere) looking for pedos.

Absolutely disgusting. There are some real creeps out there, huh?

Good on ANN for calling this out and for showing solidarity with the victims of this effing perv. Hope he gets exposed, red-handed and red-faced.

Just one more thing I'd like to add as I work in a sector of the tech industry where we see a LOT of fraud.

Scrutinize email addresses and links very closely. Make sure, for example, that [email protected] really is legit. There are a lot of frauds out there who will use that sort of tactic to try and fool people. Usually it's in the guise of someone posing as a CEO of a company who is contacting the accountant within the same company, telling them to wire money to some foreign company to pay some bill. It's easy to do because the hierarchy of a company is usually pretty easy to figure out with a little research.

If you didn't spot the trick already, look closely at the email address. Folks, we have customers who carelessly transferred tens of thousands of dollars to foreign accounts because they didn't look closely or didn't verify that the request being made was legit.

I'm disappointed, I thought this was the title of an upcoming anime at first. Laughing

In all seriousness will report if I see anything.
