Zeriara Warning

I'm not gonna file an AB over this, not that it would matter.

Just a heads up for those looking to commission or donate to @Zeriara.... Do so at your own risk.

I didn't know who she was at first when I sent the initial payment, but found out later. She's been banned on every other site but this one. There's an entry on AB already about her, and a huge write up on ED as well. I don't care if the drama is true or not, all I know is I paid for a sketchpage commission and I'm not gonna see it.

What I got was a sticker I never asked for... I do like the piece so I'm not too upset over it, but I would've preferred getting multiple pics as opposed to just one small piece.

I wont post the full details here about what happened, but if the mods want to know I'll show them the proof. I have screen shots of what happened, as well as paypal logs.

I'm cutting my losses here, and just letting everyone else know to be careful of this lemur.

I know, she has a long history of not completing commissions and keeping the money.
That's why she's banned on almost every other site. It's only a matter of time here as well.

I was watching her, but as I saw more and more of her work I decided her art wasn't what I was interested in seeing :P

Too graphic in nature, very off putting

I don't know, but as much as I dislike how she does business I'm not here to cause problems.

I just want people to know what they're getting into.

She constantly says "I know I owe people commissions, but I need money blah blah blah." Yet she never says she going to DO the work she owes. She has no intentions of it, she just wants more money. Anyone who's been on her streams should know that.
XanderShadow

Strikes me as funny concidering just how many of her streams you were on over the last few months and you seemed more than happy with her through all of them, even put in a few requests if I recall.

I've dealt with Zer multiple times as a commissioner, and every time I have recieved the work I paid for as what I paid for.

You paid for a sketch, you got a colored piece you even admit to liking, so I fail too see the problem. Even if there WERE a problem, deal with it properly and don't go off towards places like AB and ED, people who do shit like that fuck up more than they help.
BunnyFoxglove
6 years, 9 months ago
I tried to deal with it, she told me the sticker replaced the sketch page, then she sent me an email claiming I got the sketch page which she never did.

A sketch page consists of 3 or more pics, which is why I wanted that. Not a tiny colored sticker, I didn't put any requests in. I just go the streams to see if she's drawing my commission. Sadly most of her streams consisted of her sitting there smoking weed and talking. I haven't posted on either AB or ED, those are there for a reason though.

You may be one of the lucky few, mostly because she likes your character, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have a record longer then my arm of ripping people off and running away with their money. That's why she's banned on every other site.

Yeah, looks like I'm in the same boat too dude. I've had major complaints with her. I've only commissioned her twice and it has been strange and has been very frustrating to say the least. The first commission,I received a sketch page as well, on the page, I did see she sketched multiple things on other commissions, so I thought I was going to receive the same treatment. She started off with one thing, gave me the preview of it, then she randomly changed it, drew just that, and put in a random girl, then that was it. I let it pass though, since I figured she didn't have any ideas, ferals were too hard for her, whatever the reason was. She did the sketch page in a quick time, but it wasn't what I originally thought I was getting and what she said I was getting, but for the most part, she ignored me.

I thought I pissed her off somehow, someway. I figured I would try again. [icon]sundari[/icon] and I wanted to get something, before he left, and he suggested her. He told me a couple of times that she was shurking off on his commissions as well and was simply giving out random gift sketches, but not working on the actual commission. Once we got our commission together, we split half way. This has been a couple of months mind you, and she has not even attempted to contact either of us in any way, to give us updates, we haveboth had to go to her, note her, and ask what the progress was. I know how fast she is in drawing, since I have been to a couple of her join.me streams. So at this point, I think I pissed her off for some fucking weird reason honestly, because, no offense to him, she treats
KevinSnowpaw
like a fucking king, but ignores other people. So I figure I either pissed in her cheerios or she just simply plays favoritism.

Any time I have ever asked her what the status is of the commission, regardless of her pumping out art as fast as the drugs she smokes in her streams, she plainly says, "I'm working on it." or "It's in theworks." That's it. It's been a couple of months, she has been taking other commissions, so I thought she pushed me to the very back of the list, forgot about me, I dunno what the hell her problem is. I just know, she lost her business with me. It's a shame, since she's not a bad artist at all.
BunnyFoxglove
6 years, 9 months ago
Yes I agree Nir, she's a good artist and she brings this on herself.

I don't know if she just deletes the lists or what, all I know is I tried to be nice to her as much as possible so this wouldn't happen. Sadly it doesn't matter, it's all about her. If you watch her streams you already know that tho. I suspect she did the art for kevin mostly because he has a large amount of watchers, and she was new here then looking for watchers.

Either way I don't know, and all I can do is post this warning, hoping others come forward because the admins wont do anything until more people start talking.
Nir
Nir
6 years, 9 months ago
It would be a slap to her if I posted one as well, which I may just do if she keeps this up. She's on her last warning as it is.

And I know she doesn't praise Kevin because he has alot of watchers. I know that's not true, even though this really doesn't matter, because I have more than Kevin does, so she should have done that to me, if that were true. I'm not sure what's wrong with her. She treated Sundari just fine too, so I know it's not that she doesn't like ferals, or just likes only little cubby fembois. I'm not sure what I did to her to receive this, but I think she just randomly treats random people like this. I'm like you, I tried to be a good/nice commissioner. I paid her immediately, I communicated with her often, I even gave her quite a bit of slack, that most commissioners wouldn't without getting pissed. I've been very professional and was under the mindset that "life happens". When she pumps out art as fast as she does and still continuously taking other commissions and prioritizing immediate commissions over mine, which was requested months before, is where I start losing my patience. If she didn't like the idea, she could have come to me, atleast saying the idea is too complex for her abilities, so she could either offer a refund or an alternative, or something along the lines of that, but she just flat out ignored us.

Well, I hope for your sake she does complete the piece for you guys. Nir is an adorable character, I just hope she doesn't screw you over for posting on these journals. Though by the sounds of it, she's already written you guys off. Sorry to say that, but I haven't seen her do any commissions as of late that were owed, other then stuff she does on tinychat for donations.

I recognise her. She's that blasted fuck who blocks everyone who says something neutral or negative about her.

No. She's banned everywhere else for a reason dammit. BAN that bitch.

Trust me on this, since I have nearly 40 years' experience in this: The furry community is hardly unique amongst fan communities in this or any other bahaviour-- We're no more fucked up than anyone else. :P

If you've been ripped off, please make a journal about it and let everyone know. If enough people come forward then something can be done, but if not she'll be allowed to continue doing this to others.
Teko
6 years, 9 months ago
I've already expressed myself to her and friends of mine. I paid for art that she never did and pretended to have done. I have no interest in getting my commission at this point whatsoever, and I don't feel the need to broadcast my small grievance to IB in general beyond this post.
BunnyFoxglove
6 years, 9 months ago
Ok, well the admins can at least see this if they need to. I just hope the community comes together and deals with this before too many more people get ripped off by her.
Aogami
6 years, 9 months ago
Yeah, ED really rips her a new one. Its a shame because she's a talented artist. Just goes to show that talent does not a good person make I guess
BunnyFoxglove
6 years, 9 months ago
I don't believe everything in ED, but if you can read between the lines the important details of her scamming can clearly be seen.
Aogami
6 years, 9 months ago
Well yeah ED articles are often written by angry people looking for revenge. It does seem like a behavior pattern for her but at the same time I've been watching her for a while now and it seems less like intent and more like she just forgets or gets overwhelmed or just gives up on it and doesn't feel like paying them back. Idk honestly but there are a lot of examples of that type of behavior from her, which is discouraging because if she really wants to earn a living doing art she's shot herself in the foot
kitaness

Oop~ :o
I have a commission with her that hasn't been done in like 2 months with no contact. It's not that much money so I kinda forgot about it until now, but maybe I should contact her and see what's up with that ;3c
BunnyFoxglove
6 years, 9 months ago
I really wish you the best of luck, but I'm not gonna hold my breath. However given the amount of attention this is getting she might start actually doing stuff so she doesn't get banned. We'll have to see.
kitaness
6 years, 9 months ago
I'm just trying to see what (if anything) she says about it. I take a lot of drama with a grain of salt (especially that ED article) but there are so many people coming forward that there's clearly a problem.
I want to reiterate that my personal experience is not at the point of fraud (it's not exactly uncommon for a commission to take 2+ months to get done in the fandom, unfortunately), but the lack of communication so far is worrisome in the context of the problems everyone else is reporting.
FlyingFox

I seriously itch to troll her now, must. resist. temptation. She even got a journal that says she wont be bullied rofl https://inkbunny.net/journalview.php?id=26618
BunnyFoxglove
6 years, 9 months ago
Yeah, I seen that journal and I laughed. What you might not have seen is the journal she made to attack me before that. I was sleeping when she posted it and took it down shortly after, but I had a friend send me a screenshot of it. She tries to play it off like she's the victim here, but she's the one who's ripping innocent people off. If this is her only way to make money she should treat it more professionally, otherwise like any other business your customers are going to complain and make share their experience with others so they're aware of what they're getting into when dealing with them.

As for trolling her, no point in that, she just deletes the posts that don't show excess ass kissing, and then blocks you. I don't condone trolling her anyways, the best thing you can do is just spread the word so everyone on IB knows.

That's just silly. She does a good enough job of making herself look bad.

When the other people get ripped off (or finally realize they're getting ripped off), and start coming forward, hopefully it will be the end of her on IB. She has already lost 200+ watchers, just wish there was more I could do.

I had respect for her due to her art.
- Heard a couple of incidents where she scammed.
Lost a little bit of respect but still liked to see her art.
- She got into bank troubles and scammed a friend for a LOT of money.
Lost respect but wasn't bothered by the art she posted but now...
- Found out that she has bank problems because she smokes weed.
- She's asking for donations due to her weed-caused bank problems.
- She continues to not give, seemingly, most people their commissions while giving others gift art and special treatment.
- People have been blocked for rightfully enquiring about their art.
- She has built an 'army' of 'fans' of a number of people who get her 'special treatment'.
- Her 'army' is ready to 'fight' anyone who tries to directly enquire about these scams.
- She calls the people who enquire or argue against her about these submission 'bullies' even though she's the one robbing off of other via. scams to fuel her weed addiction so she should look in the mirror before calling anyone else a bully.

Now, seeing her art actually sickens me and after I've finished typing this, I'm going to unwatch her (was still watching due to any news on friends' commissions) and put the first name onto my block list. Hopefully, before she gets banned, she can pull her head together, do these commissions, go to rehab, get a job if she hasn't got one and get her life on the right track. I am not one to, or am one to very rarely ever hate vocally but this needs to be addressed as this cannot go on at all. I'm not saying that she should get banned if she can turn this around, although scamming people to fuel a drug addiction is outright freud.

Last note, and I should not stress this more, I do not mean this in an attacking manner.
AndyBanez
6 years, 9 months ago
just one note,based on the points you underlined on her behaviour

this "girl" (way too elegant word in this case) is showing us all HOW MAFIA IS MADE ...she is applying the "mafioso" behaviour EXTENSIVELY! is as subtle as almost invincible,and its not amatter of "uneducate" or "outlaw" behaviour ..its a STYLE OF LIFE!
she has to be halted immediately,without second thoughts
i only wished to point out this

 "I do not mean this in an attacking manner" you said,

too bad she would OH SO LOVE to be "attacked"...she is just waiting it
BunnyFoxglove
6 years, 9 months ago
Lets be clear, what she did to me WAS fraud.

I was supposed to get a sketch page, that's what I paid for and was promised. She drew the sticker because I was the only one in her stream at the time and she was bored. Magically when I ask about my commission she says we're even. Then she sent me an email later saying she gave me the sketches which she never drew/posted.

You can't just substitute a commission with another piece without there being an agreement on both parties, especially when she has no ToS stating that (believe me I wouldn't have commissioned her if she did).

So on the topic of "letting her turn this around" how long do you give her if you were the staff? How many more people is she to be allowed to rip off before something is done? Does she even deserve that much of a chance after well known and documented past of doing this everywhere else?
Jett
6 years, 9 months ago
Answering the 'How long do you give her if you were the staff?' question, I wouldn't give her any. She should be banned until she has given proof that she's gone to rehab and sorted herself out. If she does and she's allowed back, though, she should write up a Terms of Service which allows the commissionee to be able to look at the finished piece of art before having to pay for it. That may not be fair on her if people screw her over but she's screwed pleeeenty of people over so she can ultimately not be trusted at all.

To the administrators of InkBunny, there are two sides to this. One is that there is a weed-addict in need of money to carry on living (i.e.; fuel her weed addiction) and there is the other side where innocent people are willingly allowing this artist to take their money through scams where she doesn't carry out her end of a deal. This is people's hard-earned money being robbed through scams to feed a weed addiction when there are artists out there who actually give part of their money for good causes like financially helping others who are in desperate need such as other members of the community, charities and even orphanages and these well-meaning artists actually do the art as well and put in their own personal effort.

To the select few that are in her army and is getting her 'special treatment', all I can really say is look at the situation and think about how you would feel if an artist robbed your hard-earned money from you. If that doesn't sway you, look into the mirror and think about what it is you're actually defending.
BunnyFoxglove
6 years, 9 months ago
The problem is, most of them honestly don't know about all this stuff. They just know what she tells them, which is lies.

She paints us as the ones who are in the wrong, and they gobble it up because they like her art and think they might get something out of it. There's no way to tell them the truth because IB rules and site mechanics don't allow for it. This sort of journal is the only thing I can do.

I'm so glad I randomly clicked on one of your pictures. I don't plan on commissioning her... ever... But this disgusts me and makes me glad I never watched her. Sucks so bad that things ended so sour but at least you're warning people. That's all you can do at this point. *hugs*

Sorry to hear you had to learn the hard way :c  I met her IRL once and she seemed super nice, I assumed her ED and other drama was just that, drama. I also learned the hard way when she literally told me to fuck off when I asked for my paid for art. There's more to it, but that's the main thing. To anyone who says 'oh she hasn't done that to me'.... there's always gotta be a 'yet' at the end.  She's toxic and always will be.

*hugs*
BunnyFoxglove

Yeah, she's banned from here now, and I do feel bad for everyone she stiffed in the process. I just wish it was sooner so more people didn't get screwed. Sorry to hear about what happened to you, it's a shame there are people like this in the world.
