What are the items on the list?

Synonyms of the words on the list can be anagrammed to a tag on Puzzling SE plus one letter. For example: "Scarlet covers" are "red lids", which is an anagram of "riddle" plus "s". The complete list is:

Scarlet covers: red lidsriddle + s
Swindler's imprecation: con discheat's dammitcoinsmathematics + d (found by JS1)
Sour disordered equipment: acidic unglued toollogical deduction + u
Smash journal: plow diarywordplay + i
Sinful America: evil USAvisual + e
Surgeon oath: Dr vowword + v
Storms carport: typhoons garagesteganography + o

Who is the victim?

If we assume that the third item is correct and that the second item yields an extra d, we can anagram the extra letters to Deusovi. (Thanks, jafe, for spotting that. I had a rather less convincing guess first.)

The excess letters (probably) form an anagram of bovines, which would make the extra letter for #2 an n. ____

Who is the victim?

I think itIf we assume that the third item is correct and that the second item yields an extra Alconjad, who is well known for making good and complex puzzleswe can anagram the extra letters to Deusovi. (The OP also often nags him in chat about when his next puzzle is going to appear in true "Are we there yet?" fashion.) The tags above are among Alconja's top tags.

What's still unsolved?

I have no idea how "bovines" fits in. To my knowledgeThanks, there is no user or no tagjafe, for spotting that could be described such. The "swindler's imprecation" could be any of the tags with "puzzle" in them and the swindler might be an embezzler. I haven't foundhad a satisfactory answer yet, thoughrather less convincing guess first.)
