BEWARE: Pirate-Cashoo/ZombiePirate

WHO: Pirate-Cashoo (FA)

www. furaffinity.net/user/Pirate-Cashoo

WHAT: Couple Icons.

WHEN: October 15th, 2012 - Ongoing.





Disclaimer: Okay, first of all I -really- hate to do this because I’ve read from her updates that she’s been going through a hard time and I really don’t do confrontation. That said I feel like I need to warn potential buyers again (she’s been doing this a lot.) about Pirate-Cashoo/Cachet. All I would like to do is get in touch with her and get what I paid for or to have her reimburse me as 60 dollars is a lot of money to me and I could put it elsewhere or towards another artist who actually wants to do the artwork I‘d asked for.


On October 15th, 2012 I decided to get myself and my boyfriend at the time a set of icons from her as a gift, I have a screen cap of how that went above.

I’m keeping anyone who is not me or Cashoo anonymous as I am the person with the problem here, and not the others involved so the grey text is only usernames/references that are not mine. Just so we’re clear.

As you can read for yourself from the links, She seemed a little hesitant but told me that the wait would be a few months as she had a pretty big queue and so forth. I didn't mind waiting as I’d purchased another set of icons during the duration of the time, and as an artist myself I understand how art takes time and artists are not robots etc.

I contacted her again on October 25th because the person I had originally wanted the icons with and I had split ways and after communicating with him I switched the person I wanted to get the icons with and she okayed it with me. Told me she had not started them yet which did not really surprise me as she’d mentioned prior until November she would be pretty busy.

So I was okay with that response, and didn't contact her back until November 12th. I hadn't thought about when she told me she’d start them and had forgotten she had family plans. Again just being friendly and curious about them I shot her another note. I can’t unfortunately find the message she responded to me about but it was something along the lines of “Sorry I haven’t started them yet, my family is down…” It was all good, and I told her to have a good time with the family and again not to rush.

I then contacted her in December as I was curious why she hadn't gotten a sketch to me, but figured it was Life issues. Told her I wouldn't mind seeing a sketch before she completed a final product as I was curious if she had made any progress on the icons. She in this time started to just entirely not read or ignore my notes, and I have not been able to anchor her down for a response since then. She did however -read- this note, so there is that.

My last note I left on February 23rd 2013. I actually noted her on deviantART account prior to FurAffinity (i copied and pasted the message directly from the note i sent on deviantART) but she didn't respond to either or read the note on FurAffinity (I have no idea if you can check who reads what on deviantART as I don't use it aside from a place holder.)

I’m not making this to get people mad towards Pirate-Cashoo, but I will say that I'm severely disappointed in her business management skills and as an artist who does this as a full time job I don’t understand her complete avoidance or lack of a schedule. I love her artwork but I feel like I need to warn others about her business practices, I'm very disappointed.

I wanted to let you guys know that if I were you to watch out and maybe hold off on getting art from her. She's a friendly artist to communicate with but I'm kind of tired of lack of updates/getting a bunch of excuses from her. I hope that she reads this and gets at the very least in touch with me so either discuss a refund or give me a concise deadline.

Artist's beware has moved!

Oh no. :/ Not her again. So sorry to hear that this happened to you, too.

At this point I really do believe she needs to be arrested.
I don't care how "nice" she seems, she's ripped off too many people.

Honestly I'd like to see her get her just desserts. Court or jail. Either way.

She seems to be that type of person who acts sickly sweet and nice to cover for the fact she's an incredibly unreliable human being. :/
Apr. 5th, 2013 11:34 am (UTC)
Yeah, actually, that's exactly what she does. She had me fooled for a while, but not anymore. :/

I see you've been posting on Cashoo's dA page. In our community rules:

2. Whatever happens in the community, stays within the community. Do not go to the offender's LJ or art site account and harass them, or contact them any other way if the matter under discussion does not regard you personally. THIS COULD GET YOU IMMEDIATELY BANNED!

This is your first official warning.

My liver couldn't handle that game! D:

Her again..... Something just died inside me.

I wish I could be shocked. I honestly wish I could be.
But I can't. Not surprised anymore. Legal action needs to be taken. Chargebacks need to be made by commissioners through their banks.

I am so sorry this happened to you as well. She owes me a commission too, but I am giving her time to respond to my email before I make a post here. This is getting ridiculous.

She owes me a commission too, but I am giving her time to respond to my email before I make a post here.

You and the twenty other people waiting for an email from her.

I really would stop giving her any benefit of the doubt at this point and just post your beware. She keeps moving from one site to another now to try and outrun her reputation; but the more posts here the less chance of unawares people getting ripped off. Every post here is more publicity and another chance for people to see what she is doing- which is running a scam.

I thought like that too.
I was going to not post the beware because she already has a bunch of people doing that - but my friends suggested i do so because - frankly the more bewares she gets the less people from AB will be willing to purchase art from her. I still love her artwork but her communication sucks, and i still haven't heard back from her.

Re: I thought like that too.
I usually suggest the same, the more people speak up, the more serious the problem will be taken. In theory, that is!
Apr. 5th, 2013 03:14 pm (UTC)
Sorry to hear about this, dear. I've seen her livestreaming OFTEN on her Zombiebooty channel.... but I don't know whose commissions she's doing so there's no way of knowing how far behind she is or who she might be ignoring, etc... :(
Apr. 11th, 2013 12:34 am (UTC)
._ .; Still waiting on mine as well.. She said in a live stream she's replying to emails in the order that she received them, but I wonder about those she read and didn't reply to...

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.
