Dahvie Vanity: the abuse discussed

Recently, it seems that there are many things coming out regarding internet celebrities. However, lead singer for the band, ‘Blood on the dancefloor,’ Dahvie Vanity has had accusations floating around him for years. Though the abuse and rapes are coming to light now, this isn’t the first time it’s been highlighted.

Vanity began his career as an internet sensation. In the days of Myspace, his music quickly appealed to the youth, which placed him into the perfect position for exploitation. For many of his fans, he was an idol. However, not every girl kept that aspect of innocence. Vanity, according to many, made a point of targeting young girls who were already vulnerable. Some came from broken homes, others were emotionally vulnerable, all of these children were made victims by this predator.

The singers’ victims include Dianna Farrell (2007,) and the infamous Jessi Slaughter (2010.) However, there are dozens of other young women who have come forward regarding his sexual abuse. The most disturbing aspect, to all of this, is the fact Dahvie has yet to be held accountable. Although he has had encounters with law enforcement, he seems to only get a “slap on the wrist,” in one instance, a mere warning. How is this possible?

While there are two alleged investigations pending, one has to question the police, who allowed this man to walk free. In the past, Vanity had a method for silencing his victims. Writing songs about some victims, bullying them, or even sending his die-hard fans to torment them, it ensured their silence. After the rape of ‘Jessi Slaughter,’ those of us around at the time, witnessed the horrific bullying she endured. This including doxxing, death threats, phone calls, and so fourth. At the age of 12, she made an apology video, potentially under duress from Vanity and his fans. In this video, she apologizes for accusing him of rape; it was at that moment, he had won her silence.

His abuse, once exposed initially, had cost him tours, band members quitting, even friendships. Ironically, however, it didn’t appear to affect his following much. In recent times, he has made a “new” start on Facebook. His Blood on the dancefloor page remains highly active with frequent postings. This presents a problem. First, let’s talk about Facebook’s TOS.

According to the terms of service a convicted sex offender cannot have an account. This means, that should he ever face justice, Facebook would be required to disable his accounts. Because he’s not convicted, the said problem arises, one that could had been avoided if law enforcement had done their job. With over one million followers, Dahvie Vanity, currently, has access to countless teens. Through this, there are thousands of potential new victims. While Chris Hansen has taken on his investigation, it may do little in swaying Vanity’s followers. Given past ordeals involving those who expose Vanity, it may only serve to enrage them into defending their fallen idol.

Handling a dox threat

This article isn’t like the ones we typically write. Instead, this is a basic guide into handling a dox threat, as well as handling the situation after a dox. My platform, and myself, aren’t new to this. In 2017, while facing a three year smear campaign, I had been doxxed, alongside my family. Needless to say, I have had plenty of time to prepare for another round.

Initial threat

If you have never been through something like this before, the mere threat of being doxxed can be a very serious element to contend to. Having your information made publically available, without your consent, not only places you in potential danger, but those around you as well.

Rather or not the dox happened, you must remain calm. Remember, if you go into a panic, you aren’t able to think clearly and therefore miss potential evidence.

Collect Evidence

Always keep a record of the evidence. The more you have, the easier it is to prove. If the would-be doxxer is broadcasting his intentions, screencap it. The same goes if they are bragging about past doxxings. Remember, doxxing can be a felony, it can have added charges such as stalking, and you cannot afford to not have enough evidence.

Find Support

In most cases, pertaining doxxing, the individual has a history of the behavior. With that in mind, finding former victims, who have been threatened or doxxed, may be critical. The reason for this is it demonstrates a past behavior. In the law enforcement field, the past behaviors will often dictate those of the future.

Centralize

As you collect evidence, especially from other victims, find a way to centralize it. By having it in one location, law enforcement is able to get to it mich more quickly. In the case of Vincent Nicotra, we have a gallery for this very purpose.

Statements

This is especially essential when reporting it to law enforcement, links provided below. Having a written, or typed, statement will allow you to summarize without the pressure. If going to the police with a prewritten statement, always be sure to sign the end of it.

Reporting

In cases to which there are multiple victims, this maybe a challenge. When reporting, and using other victim names, try to be accurate. If you do not know their real names, try using an alias they are known by. For example:

Youtuber: John Doe

Though it isn’t their actual name, it does give law enforcement a means of contacting the individual. So who do you report these crimes to?

First off, you want to start with your local law enforcement agency, this begins the legal trail. If all they can do is take a report, that’s fine, don’t be discouraged, you are making a trail that dhows you have reported the situation. Now, once you do this, you may file an ic3 report.

An ic3 report, as it’s commonly called, is the cybercrime division of the FBI. By this point, you would had hopefully collected the evidence needed, should they ask for it. However, it never hurts to mention, within your report, other victims, centralized evidence location (if applicable,) and any information you may know regarding the doxxer.

Vincent Nicotra: Doxxing

Earlier this year, people witnessed the moment journalist, Chris Hansen, terminated his web designer, Vincent Nicotra. The termination was a result of countless unethical behaviors that ranged from false DMCA claims to doxxing. While you would think the lesson would had been clear, it appears that Nicotra is back to doxxing.

Nicotra implying that she was doxxed. Being that he posted this, implies he had it done, or did it himself.

Doxxing

Doxxing is a common method for obtaining personal information about a targeted individual. If used to harass the target, doxxing can be classified as a form of stalking, one of many reasons it is illegal. Illegal doxxing is the method of obtaining personal information and posting it online with malicious intent, exactly what Vincent has a history of doing.

Due to the nature and legalities of doxxing, social media sites have options for reporting this behavior. Twitters’, for instance, can be found here. Beyond going to social media, a victim can report these crimes to agencies such as the FBI. Information on this can be found here.

With each dox Vincent continues on innocent people, it is obvious that he either doesn’t care about the legal effects or is completely oblivious to them. The facts are simple, in a case such as this:

  • What Vincent is doing is illegal.
  • His doxxing can be classified as stalking, especially since he has doxxed some people several times.
  • Vincent can go to prison for these crimes.
  • Being that most of his victims are spread throughout several states, he could face felony charges.

While it is unlikely that Vincent will ever stop without legal involvement, we still issue this article as a warning to him. Furthermore, we present this article with the hopes that his victims are able to get the justice they deserve.

Vincent Nicotra: gallery

It is, without say, that articles go along way. However, evidence goes even further. We have decided to make another gallery, documenting Nicotra’s unethical, and potentially illegal, behaviors. This, like the Onision gallery, will be updated as needed.

UPDATE: We would like to thank everybody who has posted images. It is through this, we were/are able to collect evidence in the hopes it will finally bring justice to those targeted by Vincent Nicotra.

Updates

Yeah, we know…this didn’t take long. However, when running around in the cyber world, we found this little gem.

The Nicotra scheme

Introduction

Former “web designer,” Vincent Nicotra, has been the target of various unethical and even illegal activities. While we had been following this, mildly, that has since changed. If you haven’t been following the Nicotra situation, let’s get you caught up.

Vincent, of “Ven interactive Media“, was originally in charge of websites for journalist, Chris Hansen. Nicotra recently was given the public spotlight when he filed multiple false DMCA claims against various Youtubers. However, his criminal, and unethical, activities didn’t stop there.

Doxxing Claims

Even prior to Nicotra’s termination from Hansen, there have been accusations in regards to doxxing. While we normally don’t discuss hearsay, there are multiple individuals making this claim. Oxford defines doxxing as, the “search for and publishment of private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet, typically with malicious intent.”

While doxxing is illegal, it is often hard to get an actual conviction. In many cases, it’s simply to difficult to establish who the doxxer actually is. However, that’s if the doxxer plays it smart, something Vincent has clearly failed to do. While he has been exposed by his victims, and countless others, it appears to have no effect on Vincent’s behavior.

DMCA claims

Alongside the doxxing accusations, Nicotra is also accused of filing false DMCA claims. Baked Salmon and Wes Moast, being a constant target of such claims. Recently Baked Salmon even had his channel shutdown as a result of Vincent’s false DMCA reports. While the channel has since been restored, this doesn’t change the malicious intent behind Vincent’s actions.

Baked Salmon is an individual who has a history of being critical of Hansen and Nicotra. It is possible that the subjects within the video is what lead Nicotra’s actions. Even if this were to be true, it doean’t make the action any less illegal. While Hansen has, in recent times, apologized for the false DMCA claims, Nicotra has only continued to make the false reports. So what exactly is DMCA?

A DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) claim is intended to prevent copyright infringement. However, Vincent has apparantly forgotten that. In filing a DMCA claim, Vincent is claiming property ownership of the videos posted. The problem, however, is upon watching the videos targeted, it’s obvious that the claim is false. What Nicotra may not be aware of is section 512(f) of the DMCA. Section 512(f) of the DMCA act places legal liability on any person who willfully, and knowingly, files a false claim; remember, a DMCA claim is a legally binding document and can be used in court.

The computer and the FBI

One tidbit that has been circulating Twitter, in regards of Nicotra, is the infamous computer. A victim of Onision had apparantly sent a computer, containing evidence against Onision, to Vincent. Upon recieving the computer, it was supposed to be forwarded to the FBI. Sounds like a great plan, right? The problem is, and recently confirmed by Chris Hansen himself, is Vincent never actually sent it. Instead, after months of holding it, he sent it back to the victim. By doing this, it raises questions as to rather or not Nicotra was purposefully trying to derail the Onision investigation. In the end, we may never know the real reason as to why he did this.

Conclusion

Regardless of how you speak out, if it’s against Nicotra, you can ensure that problems will occur. Upon being terminated, the website, “Hansen vs. Predators,” was essentially taken hostage by Nicotra. Since the time of this event, the website has been put up for auction. Various other individuals, who have spoken against Nicotra, were met with insults, DMCA claims, and even the loss of their channels.

Nicotra, appears to be trying to salvage his reputation while destroying it. Filled with many allegations, some being sexual harassment, to which we haven’t even begun to cover, it leads us to ask, “why doesn’t he simply stop?” As with most things, this is a question to which we may never get an answer. In the meantime, the people he has targeted have waged an all-out virtual war against this apparent abuser.

Onision evidence (gallery)

After falling out of a second story window, Greg’s toddler was rushed to the hospital. These are tweets sent by Greg as his child was hospitalized.
Circled in red: the window from which his child fell.
A distrubing tweet that shows the twisted thoughts of Greg aka: James aka: Onision.
Highlighted: evidence that supports the FBI investigation claim.
Police report from his child’s fall. Note that it mentions Onision recorded the child post fall.
More disturbing tweets from Onision. Bear in mind that the majority of his audience are minors.
Tweet sent from Onision’s spouse, Kai. This image needs no further explanation.
Racism: Onision, pictured here, utilizing the infamous “black face” look. This was originally done as a form of making fun of people of color.
When operating “onision.xyz,” Greg had a section entitled “rate my body.” This section was very popular among girls between the ages of 12-16. It was later changed due to contraversy.
In a recent “freak out” video, Onision is seen standing in his underwear. We blurred the image because the garments left nothing to the imagination.
In the above tweets, Greg once again demonstrates his lack of respect toward women.
As everybody already expected, the case was dismissed.

Greg posting in regards to his own child.

Another police report in regards of Onision.
Meet Tamara. Tamara is a moderator on Onision’s discord. Just as Onision has in the past, we find her doing some victim shaming.
Be sure to remember what Greg is saying here. It’s important when viewing the next image.
As we stated, it’ s important when viewing this image.
Another post to which Onision slams it to people with BPD. Didn’t he say there was nothing wrong with having it?
In a previous image, we showed one of his “rate my body” videos…here he talks against body shaming?

Image 3: email sent by Onision
Keeping to his trend, Onision attacks his victims.
The irony to this comes in the fact that Onision obsessed over some of his victims years after they left. Of course, talking about him is wrong.
Onision proving the abuse claims made against him.
Many people told Onision this very thing as he spent years obsessing over Shiloh and other victims.
That time Onision slandered his father-in-law.
The title speaks for itself, originally uploaded to his forum, which has since been shutdown.
Onision’s own poll verifies who the ages of the majority of his viewers.
Notice the highlighted part. The double negatives, never and not, actually counter one another. This statement actually says that they did do something inappropriate.
It is unknown who Kai intemded this for.
Shiloh had made a post telling a portion of her story. Date unknown.
Greg had confirmed what he is in 2017.
Another poll, again showing the vast majority of his followers are minors.
Onision attacking an entire nation over their accent.

The above images were collected from a variety of tweets. While some images we took ourselves, WoC does not claim any credit for the vast majority. We felt having evidence in one location would be of a bigger benefit for all.

Onision 9-1-1 call (transcript)

If you don’t know, journalist Chris Hansen arrived at the home of Gregory Jackson (Onision.) Rather than speaking to Hansen, Greg called the police. Below is the word-for-word transcript of the call.
