Some of you may remember the saga of Pirate Cashoo from a few years ago. She ghosted with a long list of prepaid commissions, some of which were already years old. Her tag here has 11 bewares - but her total queue of customers from FA, DA, Tumblr, and Hentai Foundation was into the hundreds.
My original "beware" post about her was in 2013, regarding images purchased in 2011. It's so old I didn't think there was much use in editing that post.

Cashoo got back in contact with me earlier this year, and over the past month my old commissions have been completed, in full and to good quality. I'm happy with them.

Though I'm not excusing the original behavior, making good on a five-year-old transaction is a rare thing, and I give Cashoo props for doing that. Looking through her active Tumblr accounts, she is making a good-faith effort to plug through everything she owes, and has either completed drawings or sent refunds to a lot of people so far.
If you're on her outstanding list and haven't heard from her, she's using pirate-cashoo and tellamine on Tumblr and you should reach out.
You can go ahead and retag my old post as resolved, and I wanted to give this heads-up to anyone who may still be waiting be waiting on images or may still remember the ordeal with her.
