Hello my dear Steemians and Art Fans,

 

This post today was a result of investigation that was called by one of the user who noticed repetitive behavior of certain users and that they misusing the opportunity of curators in # Newcomers' Community.

We also would like to call @steemcurator01 to have a look into Newcomer’s community because many simple users now referring to us, as an Investigators of Deception cases.

First of all let’s go to @jamesabby blog

 


Deception case 1: Art Plagiarism

Of course it was not his original drawing, it was taken from this website:

Deception case 2: Art Plagiarism

Deception case 3: Art Plagiarism

The Original work is from that website:

In his introduction post he mentioned the names of the users @paulyoung and @unyimeetuk who are drawing themselves and it would be interesting to hear their opinion about this Art plagiarism:

And this is his statement, that he received an Upvote from SC03 that is triggered by @tarpan

Despite of this Statement he posted multiple Plagiarism posts.

The same time this user posted 6 times Achievement1: Introduction Post and received twice Upvote from @Steemcurator03 triggered by @tarpan.

And that is again the same post 3 days ago, upvoted by who? Of course, by @tarpan who used again @steemcurator03. Despite of that even other accounts downvoted the user SCo03 has not removed his one.

As you may know that the Curators who are using @steemcurator03 account produce weekly reports about Achievement and this user is on such list in the report of @sm-shagor from 2 days ago:

But yesterday the same curator @sm-shagor produced a list of plagiarists and who is the list of course already well known user:

For this last post the user has 0 in payout but not because she was not upvote but because she was downvoted. What do you think who Upvoted this post? Yes, it was @tarpan

Why so many abuse cases in Newcomer’s Community?

  • Too many curators that is why users often overseen
  • Curators not visiting the blogs of users but simply curating their posts in the Community Page
  • Many users producing the same posts multiple times receiving support from @SCO03 account
  • Many Plagiarism posts are not checked therefore, the users misusing the Community curation accounts

As always, faithfully yours we are Guardians of steem,

Sad ... as always, but as always good work @stef1

Воровать диснеевские рисунки - это глупо....

·

Глупо но иногда проходит, как видно не все обращают внимание на такие вещи..

·

воровать глупо и глупо так глупо воровать =)

Hello dear friend @stef1 good day
You are doing a great job cooking people who commit abuse and plagiarism, but you also show that the curatorial work is not being done with all the rigorous controls that it requires.
The work you do in our beloved company is greatly appreciated
I wish you a great day

·

Thank you for stopping by and reading the post. This is very frustrating to see such situation in the community and that curators who do oversee a lot. Maybe too many curators not good, because people not really feeling responsible for checking and relying on others.

·
·

Yes, being a curator is a very big responsibility, in addition, there are many things that must be done to make a good control
Have a beautiful night

I am really tired of this...

·

It is never ending story, they are like weed, difficult to rid of.

Gracias @stef1, por tu excelente trabajo de investigación

·

Thank you for your nice feedback and reading the post :)

Hi
@stef1

Curator only vote verified account.. But verified other person.

20211118_160212.jpg

when Curator curate post only follow label.

·

@sm-shagor for your kind information i have verified his achievement 2 task, because I don't have permission from @Cryptokanonn to verify achivement 1 task.
And you are showing the screenshot of achievement 2 task verification .
Don't you see @jamesbaby's achievement 1 task was verified by other greeter and on that verification 1 then i verified her achievement 2 task.

·

If you have given Sc03 task then you must be very careful and must investigate that either user has published his achivement 1 task earlier or not.
You can see that here achievement 1 task was verified by @ngoenyi and after verification of his achievement 1 task my job was to check jamesabby's achievement 2 task and verifiy it.

IMG_20211118_222321.jpgyou can check @jamesabby achievement 1 task was 2 months old but again you people didn't check that user again 26 days ago published achievement 1 task and again @tarpan curated it
IMG_20211118_222429.jpg
And that isn't over yet again that user published achievement 1 task about 13 days ago and again @tarpan curated, can't you see all that ????
Curators aren't able to see it that same user is publishing achievement 1 task again and again and curators are upvoting that user again and again.
How strange !

·
·

I agree that everything sounds very suspicious it seems people do not know who is doing what.

·

That is very complicated and that also puts a responsibility of the shoulders of others.

If the curator is not checking and choosing posts, then why curator creates a post about Curation with SC03 account and gets Upvote for the job that he has not done?

I think that is not correct, are the other curators from your community do the same?

this is serious. I sometimes say things like this in the newcomer's community but wasn't sure of what to do. please, curators, endeavor to go through all posts of users before curating. this is really bad that it is coming from new users.

@stef1 you are doing a great job.

·

I think in general it is bad to have such behavior and attitude people will think that it is normal and where we go from here?

Thank you. Investigating...

Hi @steemcurator01, please find another Investigation and finding abuse in multiple communities both Steem and Hive:

·

It is interesting to read the comment of the community members and curators, read the comments of them, for me it sounds like people just using the opportunity to create weekly reports to get Upvote either from SC03 or SC01.

Hi @steemcurator01, I would like to draw your attention to this beautiful Literacy contest that is organized by the Professional Artist Romanie Sanchez, @romanie in „World of Xpilar“ community.

Hi @steemcurator01, another post with trick changing the text and making them unrecognizeable for plagiarism search machines. Hope that will help other curators of different communities to be more cautious. Despite of Holiday time such cheaters are not having off:

получилось целое расследование=) интересный пост

nice work again
new users can be old ones but with some new ideas :)

one question - how many people do finding, investigating and reporting "suspicious" content - does adding some kind of badge, honour or even prize for ones that find users that do not follow rules

A never-ending task. I really admire you @stef1

·

It's still amazed me how you manage to go round digesting content, appreciate good work and figuring bad eggs and plagiarism. Good job as always @stef1

It's always an honour when someone says I have been a source of inspiration but in this case, It is a total dishonour. I can't and will never advice someone to deceive or be involved in theft. I frown at this user who has neglected honesty for deception. How can you say that I inspired you and yet you go about claiming the works of others. I don't claim people's work so I never inspired you in that aspect. Plagiarism is unacceptable and he should be made to face the consequences of his action. I hope he learns from this! Thank you @stef1 for being an advocate for honesty and for making sure that things are done the appropriate way.

As always great work in uncovering these posters. Its always sad to see though. Do people not realize Google image search is a thing?

I feel ashamed to be associated with this type of issue. I warn everyone to desist from this type of action. I am thankful to @stef1 for the good work you are doing.

Steemit is too good, how can one take out his time just to behave this way? From now on, care will be employed to ensure that those verified are not linked to any fraudulent activities.
