BEWARE - Pirate-Cashoo

WHO: Pirate-Cashoo

WHERE: http://pirate-cashoo.deviantart.com/

WHAT: I was interested in a 135$ full detailed commission. I wanted to pay half because I didn't have the full amount at the time and she accepted.

WHEN: Made first half of payment once the commission was accepted Jan 16th 2012.

PROOF: The screen-cap above of my payment is unfortunately the only proof I have that hasn't since been deleted by her.

EXPLAIN: I paid for this commission excitedly. I assumed if I still had 60$ waiting for her at the end of it she would be more likely to finish. Around Sptember-October I had left her a shout on her FA page saying I wasnt interested in paying any more since it had taken so long and asked for a reduced quality commission for the 67.50$ I had paid rather than a detailed piece. She was fine with it. Though she gave no apology for lack of updates for months on end and no WIP photos. She told me she had started it and had sketched it multiple times and started over. (Lies). She had been accepting more and more commissions all the way up to December with no update on mine. I let it be and didnt really think about it until recently. I had read her journals about living issues and figured she was more active. So I left a shout on her FA account once more now that its been months since the last time I contacted her.

I also contacted her on her on her DA, Tumblr and through email all with no response.

EDIT : March 19th 2013

I left a shout on her Deviantart page once I noticed the note I sent her had been read, but not responded too.
She responds with reasons as to why she couldn't just reply letting me know she has too many refund requests. It doesn't take long to type one to two sentences as to whats going on. But seeing as how giving sob stories is her primary defense. I could see it taking her forever to respond to people.
She is already having to convince her LAND LORD that she can actually pay her bills even though shes admitted to not having much money at all. Really shows that she can be manipulative even in serious life situations. Throughout the entire spew she really only spoke about herself. I felt as though she only responded to my post so that other people/customers could see it.

She also /refuses/ to give me a refund because the commission is supposedly already in progress. Yet she gives me no work in progress.

Welp... make another notch on that "AB" belt for Cashoo. I am not surprised anymore, and I sincerely hope she does get to your image. I'd keep trying, and continue to contact her as often as possible.

I really, don't even want the piece anymore. the charcter I wanted is no longer mine and I don't really want a piece that will just remind me of the trouble. I just want the money back so it can go towards better things.

Second image too small, and could you link them to text? I'm just asking personally not as a mod or anything. xD

I'm still figuring out whether or not I should post a beware on her, though I commissioned her in like September for her moving funds.
Mar. 12th, 2013 01:49 am (UTC)
Haha, I'd say yes. Most definitely, I would post about her if you've been waiting for 6+ months, which it sounds as though you have.

I'm not even surprised she's back on here anymore. I saw on her tumblr she had internet and a new system and in my head I knew that it was all ballyhoo. At this rate I hope you get your money back and she finally stops taking funds and running off with it.

Mar. 12th, 2013 02:36 am (UTC)
I saw that as well and just said to myself "Well hey, more problems for older commissions."
Mar. 12th, 2013 05:21 am (UTC)
Oh great, Cashoo again!
I really hope that you get what is owed to you as soon as possible.
Mar. 12th, 2013 11:36 am (UTC)
I'm glad to see you posted here... I do hope you can get your money back, but unfortunately it's highly unlikely to happen. Instead, if she by some miracle decides her customers are actually important and starts communicating with us/them again, you can try asking her to draw a different character?

I'm still waiting for the day when I can close my own case/post about her here on AB, but it'll probably be a looooong time.

Regardless, best of luck!

She's still using her FA account to fave stuff, last fave is only 2 days old. But yeah, this is her fourth entry here in A_B, the previous being for $285, which is still unresolved.
Clearly customers should run, not walk, away from this artist and her shady practices.

UmU She still owes me a free headshot. From October 2011 I believe? I asked her about it and she never responded..
Mar. 12th, 2013 06:10 pm (UTC)
She's been far too... "generous" ... with her freebie offerings. She offered me a full body colored freebie as compensation for taking so long with my commissions, but she hasn't even finished the last of my commissions so I'm not keeping my hopes up for the freebie. :/

You should give her a poke... sure, it may be "just" a freebie, but it's still something she promised to do.

I understand your annoyance.

I'm just kinda wondering why they okayed this submission. After a week of waiting A-B threw a fit because i hadn't blurred the emails in the payment screencap.

Good luck with solving your problems.

It's clearly stated that we retain both artist and customer's privacy to NOT have their personal information in bewares if they do not make it public.

The artist in your post did not display their email publicly, and so we require that information to be blurred out for their protection.

Protecting a person's privacy is not throwing a fit.

I'm also waiting on a piece from her that was commissioned on November 11th of 2011 for $150. I sent her a note on Feb 16th to check in with her. It was read but not responded to.

Hrm. I'm really hoping she pulls through. I adore her work and would hate to be disappointed with this :C
Mar. 14th, 2013 11:40 am (UTC)
You should probably send her another reminder, on all her sites. I know she frequents her hentai-foundry account a lot, and there's also tumblr. :/ I'm baffled that there are even more people emerging who are waiting since 2011.

Let's hope she actually decides her reputation is important and gets back to her clients. Always sucks to see a talented artist ruin it for money.
Mar. 18th, 2013 07:07 am (UTC)
Jeeeze, I have one from her as well that I think was from even before this.....may have to make an AB report too :(
Mar. 19th, 2013 04:56 am (UTC)
I feel like you should update the post with a screenshot of her reply to your comment on dA. It speaks volumes about the way she treats her customers. :/
Mar. 19th, 2013 11:54 am (UTC)
I second this! That reply is the perfect example of how she "handles" things.... typing up walls of sob. It was a wall of sob not unlike this that made me cancel my paypal claims against her, and now I can do nothing. I really hope people will stop buying into her sob stories.

FA Admin Bazeel has banned Pirate-Cashoo on FA.

He attempted to contact her and work out an amicable solution, but she did not do what she was asked, and did not respond after a series of communication. She was given more than enough time (over a month actually!) to comply with what she was asked to do, and refused to do so.

She is welcome back on FA after she has had significant progress in finishing artwork, NOT taken on a bunch more to make up for it, and has a public queue.

I'm posting this on her related unresolved posts in case word isn't out about her ban and it's contingency.
