BEWARE: Abe Gribble

WHO: Abe Gribble

WHERE: email??

WHAT: 2-for-1 commission

WHEN: July 20-Aug 11

I was commissioned to draw something for someone who contacted me via email. He gave no word on being on other social art sites, though I am assuming they are on furaffinity or da as that’s where I posted my special offer

Link to original journal offering these: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/3668689/

He contacted me and the emails are here:


Here is a screenshot of the payment he sent me, I screenshot all of my commission transactions for catalogueing and easy access when I have a huge amount of commissioners (to help me find who has paid and who hasn’t)


He sent me more than nwas required which I thought twas nice.

I sent the finished image out on the 5th , he never responded to my email, or any other emails asking for a second commission. Here is the finished commission: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8628075/

 this comes:


I’ve contacted him about the charge, but so far they have not responded. I am talking to my friend about this guy and she gave me a warning:


be warned! If this guy ever tries to commission you, do not let him. I do realise that it has only been a day since the person has initiated the charge, and I have trust in my friend for years. Since more than 2 people are affected (me and my friend and some of her artist friends) from this guy’s dealing, it may be best to post him here.

A question, can I post a link to this in my journal if I tell them not to harass Gribble?

Artist's beware has moved!

I think linking it to your journal would be fine. I'm not sure how someone could harass Gribble if he doesn't seem to be active on any social media sites. But definitely let people know not to contact him.



Man that is such a crappy thing to do, chargebacks. I really hope you can get in touch with him. I'll be wary of that name for sure.

Talk about foul.

Wish you the best of luck with that one!

Beware well warranted.

Is it my imagination, or are more people pulling the "pay for something and then file chargeback after getting art" trick these days? If that's actually catching on or something, then that's really depressing.

That's what it seems like to me!

I really hope it's not, but it does seem to be happening more often lately. D:

I certainly hope not.
There's already enough mistrust in the commission-business without a need for added problems. o_O

The two incidents that I got hit by were accidental. CandyWolfie was using his parent's card and didn't tell them what he was buying and they assumed it was stolen. And the other girl (unnamed)had her account hacked and filed chargebacks with her CC carrier, which they chargebacked like everything instead of the list she gave them.

He paid me back in full, and I'm waiting on that last tiny bit from her.
