Although the phenomena is not new, recently a series of fake users have invaded, yet again, our community.
What apparently is new is the lack of response from the website moderators on tackling the problem.
If before a few simple "reports" were enough to trigger some response, now seems like everyone is asleep.
I just came across with this account https://www.pixoto.com/adit3 which posts all photos taken from other websites in the internet as reposts on PIXOTO as its own content. A simple search on google can show that this is a FAKE user, reposting (and selling under his account) photos that do not belong to him. Analyzing a bit deeper i saw several comments on the photos saying exactly the same and even links to the REAL sites where the photos have been originally posted several years ago.
My question is: How come the moderators so keen to move photos that have awards to a different a similar category making them lose the accolades previously granted now seem to accept peacefully this type of SCAM?!

Hello Renato, are you saying you made a report and did not get a response?

Yes. Only after posting here. Reports on the photos for several weeks got no response. By the way, the same freak is back with the same name but different account. https://www.pixoto.com/adityamahendra
