Profile

SweFox* is a user and Gold Member of Facepunch, most notable for giving gifts and selling hardware to other users. Said sales seemed legitimate, and received few complaints. At the end of June 2013, the sales were revealed to be a scam. Due to his generous reputation, he was mostly forgiven for this. However, he continued to ask for donations to pay for his cats and video games.

His behavior was exposed in the thread, "A report on one of our own users, Swefox - What not to do with your money".[1] This scam is among the largest in Facepunch history, second only to the Great Bitcoin Heist.

The money scammed amounted to at least $1670, and more likely exceeded $2000. Most of the money was reclaimed. He is in no way affiliated with "Swefox.se",[2] a Swedish webshop for sexy lingerie.

He was later permabanned on his own request sometime later in 2013. He was unbanned in 2015 for Garry's Birthday.
