Furry convention scam: Furry Beach
13TheFurry also posted on YouTube that she had tried to find Furry Beach but had been unable and was reporting it as a possible scam and naming Thelpsgirl on YouTube and fkandfriends on deviantART as the scammers. Thelpsgirl, or someone claiming to be her, replied on Dragoneer's journal that she was only passing on information of the con that she had got from YouTube user Sophiasummer16.
The convention – claimed to be in its third year – was said to be held in Oceanside, California, but included photos from Germany's Eurofurence, Anthrocon, FurFright and private meets. The website also provided a list of registered attendees, all of whom had fursuits. At real furry conventions, most attendees do not bring a fursuit; at large events, the proportion of fursuiters is around one in five.
