Hello my dear Steemians and Art Fans,

 

 

Today we wanted to present you another user who we caught on few abuse cases who used the painting of the Professional Artist and the photo from Amazon website for advertisement of underwear.

 


Recurrent abuses on Steemit @guruchudy


 

When I see such users, I just can’t understand if those people have no fantasy, no ideas and of course no will to put a bit of their efforts to reach something on Steem, it is quite easy only needs a bit of engagement. Those users do not understand that they destroy the Reputation of users who are originating from their countries like in this case from Nigeria.

Once again, we, different Moderators from “World of Xpilar” became suspicious about this user because he started posting in our community.

One of the first post immediately attracted our Attention, you know that we are curating Art and seeing that work my thought was:

  • Very good painting

  • Impasto style

  • Oil painting, that is actually the “Kings” level

 

Seeing that the user is from Nigeria where the materials for Oil painting are very expensive and to do such High level painting the use must be very famous at least in his country.

So our Investigation started.

 


Eric Alfaro


 

The real Artist is Eric Alfaro, who Cuban Artist but currently lives in US. He is very well known in Art World, his works are well sold and he has his Facebook, Instagram and many other websites.

 

The picture that the user displayed is actually the Facebook thumbnail of the Artist:

And here is the other Artwork that the user @guruchudy posted in his post, do you know how much it cost?

Going further there are two more posts, with Art that the user claims his new works.

1) This one is digital Art and obviously it is signed and it is not a signature of the user

This drawing he claims that he did himself. But looking at the work, it is fine precise work, done in very high realistic style paying attention to value of shading and creation of 3d effect using pencil and likely charcoal. But there is no signature, it might be simply cropped.

But when you compare the quality of above two works: one is digital and another is high skill realistic drawing and the two below with the signature of the user.

My reaction was:

Are you kidding me?

Really?

Here are the drawing of @guruchudy and his signature how he signs his works:

The other ridiculous attempt is to deceive our Moderator @axeman, who is the professional photographer and running Photo Contest, where the user @guruchudy submitted this photo:

Here is the reaction of @axeman:

And this is his reply:

I think the user knows that he is abusing platform he just does not care.

 

Therefore, I wanted to tag following users who supported this abuser on different stage of his activity:

  • But also every user, please if you see any suspicious posts, do not support them but report to @endingplagiarism team or your community Moderators. Do not just pass by.

@steemcurator01, if you like what we do and how comprehensive we research then, please support our anti-plagiarism Initiative. It takes a lot of time and research to reveal such abuser. We all have to do our best to keep the Steem blockchain clean.

For our community there are enough evidence, we will ban this user from our community and remove the rewards.

As always, faithfully yours we are Guardians of steem,

@stef1 and @myskye

Well done @stef1, thank you for exposing such dirty and insidious scams,
I gave a @guruchudy vote for the drawing Johnny Depp because it was shown step by step, but I didn't look deeper into the author, they just don't deserve to be on the platform. Thank you for this information and on everything what are you doing for us.
And those words; I'm sorry I didn't know and I won't do it again ... that's bullshit.
They are people without imagination and just steal other people's things.

Thanks @ stef1 just keep it up.

Thank you @to-tru for your nice comment, I am glad to have you hear and actually for being able to discover you. It is common that we simply run through different posts and do not have time to stop and chat. But your comment brought me to your blog. Love your sailing boats. Will see you around :)

I understand you completely because there are a lot of people blogging and commenting, don't worry see you around and thank you

nice. Can I post to your community?

Hi,anyone can post in any community, only try to post your original content. I noticed very weird post that you posted about 15 days ago:

@toufiq777 and @steemcurator01 is it normal that @booming account give support to such empty posts?

·
·

This post was not empty. However, I think he deleted the post later.

·
·
·
·
·

I am extremely sorry for that. But I had to delete it because of some personal reasons. I deleted it after payouts. I did delete 2 posts on Poetry Recitation.

Such action always cause suspicion, especially now seeing that there is empty post that was rewarded will make other user angry because nobody now know if there was something or not. The first impression when I saw that was that you wanted to hide something, do not know what, because it is not there anymore.

·

With due respect, I understand your such concern. But I have edited the post after payouts and I have evidences of that. Please see the below two attachments.

You can see the red marked place of my two attachments, where you can see the time stamp of my editing history. The first attachment was posted on the previous month. And edited on 9th of May, 2021.

On the other hand, the last attachment was posted on 2nd of May, 2021 at 15:26 and edited on 9th of May,2021 at 22:46. It notifies that, I edited it after payouts.

Reason of editing these post

Though transactions and mining of Cryptocurrencies are strictly prohibited in Bangladesh, but some people trying to mining it in a secret way. Because it is against the law of Bangladesh.

Here is the daily newspaper link of the capturing of some people by Bangladeshi Police, who were involved with Bitcoin.

https://www.ittefaq.com.bd/capital/241620/%E0%A6%85%E0%A6%AC%E0%A7%88%E0%A6%A7-%E0%A6%AC%E0%A6%BF%E0%A6%9F%E0%A6%95%E0%A7%9F%E0%A7%87%E0%A6%A8-%E0%A6%AC%E0%A7%8D%E0%A6%AF%E0%A6%AC%E0%A6%B8%E0%A6%BE-%E0%A6%95%E0%A6%B0%E0%A7%87-%E0%A6%B2%E0%A6%BE%E0%A6%96-%E0%A6%B2%E0%A6%BE%E0%A6%96-%E0%A6%A1%E0%A6%B2%E0%A6%BE%E0%A6%B0%E0%A7%87%E0%A6%B0-%E0%A6%AE%E0%A6%BE%E0%A6%B2%E0%A6%BF%E0%A6%95-%E0%A6%B8%E0%A7%81%E0%A6%AE%E0%A6%A8?fbclid=IwAR2LjdbQ43jVME2TAy7JbZC9kl2gl7B4wX47q8ZjD2vnCPosXPqRppMDFfg
(The news is on Bengali Language, you have to translate it to English.)

The captured people were involved with mining Bitcoin. Steemit is also closely connected with Bitcoin. So I was very much afraid of it. Because there was videos on those posts and my face was showing on those posts. That's the reason, why I edited the posts. I hope you will understand.

Steem Bangladesh doesn't support any kind of activity which is wrong. I have checked his post. He has edited his post after payout. Your concern is right. Any one can doubt after looking a post like that. I think his intention was trying to hide his identity. Even I also try to hide my identity. The main problem is cryptocurrency is illegal in Bangladesh. That's the reason every Bangladeshi try to be safe by hiding their identity. If cryptocurrency get legalized then a huge wave of Bangladeshi user will join in this platform that this platform can't handle. Hope in 2022 we will get a good news of legalization of cryptocurrency in Bangladesh. Then it will be easy for us to promote steemit more freely.

Guaoooo de verdad yo aprendo cada día más con los post y no imaginaba que esto pasara en ese país, eres valiente y de verdad entiendo tu posición.

Thank you for the tag.

My reaction was:
Are you kidding me?
Really?

You wouldn't believe how often I have this reaction and as for the apologies... "Oh, I'm so sorry, I'll try not to do it again" is a response I often receive.

Yes, that's right. try not to do it again as if there's some etheral force making them copy somebody else's content. Are you kidding me??

Thanks again.

That is weird that people decide to deceive, like children in nursery, who just learn the world. But the users are all adults. So long they are not caught they will do so. It is sad but the reality of Internet and being behind the screen and not face to face.

Thank you for your support :)

👍 We should feel blessed that we don't understand them!

Thank you so much for creating this report.

@rex-sumon who used @steemcurator06 account to support

I do not use @steemcurator06 account. I use @steemcurator03 and @steemcurator07.

Hi @rex-sumon, you are right, it was mistyping, I meant @steemcurator03

I am notifying this user. With 80+ users on my curation list, it is not possible to verify everyone's content. I'll be more careful. Thanks. Your work is commendable.

Sangat disayangkan, karya orang lain diambil dan dijadikan konten. Dia ingin sukses tetapi mengambil jalan pintas yang dalah.
Terimakasih infonya. Dan ini jadi reminder bagi kita semua agar tidak menjadi seorang plagiator

That is true, such shortcut never be good on long term. I am glad to hear your supportive words :)

NO AL PLAGIO!!! apoyando el contenido ORIGINAL! Muy buen trabajo @stef1

Thank you @bellana for your opinion, really glad to see you around and for reading the post :)

OMG!
I also nominated @guruchudy 's drawing once before.
I think it was the lone ranger sketch.
But it got the curation already.

It is great to know there are some people like you to find these plagiarism.

·

I can imagine, sometimes we can be mislead by such users, because initially we all think that people are honest. We all need to be cautious :)

Well done @stef1 Keep up the good work.

Thank you Diana for your supportive words :)

Я думаю это совсем не интересно публиковать чужой контент, вот когда это действительно твое и как это оценивает сообщество, мне даже жалко таких людей у них нет ни капли фантазии для творчества. Они даже не представляют какой вред приносят нашему сообществу. Возьмем к примеру меня я даже собственный текст проверяю на уникальность, понимаете насколько это важно

·
  ·  작년

Абсолютна с тобой согласна, делая блог мыстараемся придать свою изюминку а не копировать кого нибудь. Хорошо тебя понимаю,поэтому твои посты соверешенно отличаются от других :)

You 're doing a very good and important work for the community! Thanks a lot! 😃

Triste por él y por nosotros, entorpece el trabajo limpio de los demás steemians. 🤨🤔

Sad for him and for us, it hinders the clean work of the other steemians🤨🤔

Right, that plants a seed of suspicion which is always spoil the mood of loyal and fair user

·

Aquí solemos decir sobre éste tipo de situaciones:

"Relajate y sigues adelante pues lo mejor está por suceder"

Continuemos creciendo y arrancado la paja del camino. 🤗💅

Here we usually say about this type of situation:

"Relax and move on because the best is yet to happen"

Let's continue growing and pulling the straw out of the way.🤗💅

You are doing good work, keep it up. We do not need users like this who steal other people's work.

·

Agree, there are many other great bloggers and hope that we keep growing :)

que triste que hagan eso en esta plataforma.

·
  ·  작년

Yes, so long they are not caught they will keep doing that.

Nice work @stef1, shame this is such a problem, though. I just don't understand why these people don't just share their own stories. A lot of people started on Steemit with pretty much nothing at all and built followings that help them earn handsome rewards... cheating is NOT the way!

·
  ·  작년

When I first joined the Steemit, I thought: "Wow, that is great people get reward for posting their own thoughts, ideas just daily stuff" But some people perhaps have different approach they know that certain stuff like Art or Photo or poetry will bring more and it is easy and accessible in WWW. It is sad but that is our society: good and correct people vs cunning and greedy ones

Damn, this is really bad.
I wouldn't like it if my art was stolen.
Good job👍 @stef1. I really commend your efforts.

These people should be blacklisted and their access should be revoked for sometime. We should have such mechanisms for such kind of abusers, only when there is a proper impact will they learn to not abuse the platform. It's sad to see why people cannot earn with morality.

·
  ·  작년

The problem with such blockchain, that anyone can creates so many accounts he wants. After being revealed by abusing, they simple create other account and start from beginning. Unfortunately, we all hope and trust in the best features of others but the bad side and easy earn without input seems to be attractive for those users.

this is incredible this user hurts our project, what a good job you are doing to discover these plagiarism greetings and success

·
  ·  작년

Yes, you are right and even having strict rules and system that checks and punish abuse, still can't find all of them. Seems like it is only every single user who needs to make decision to be honest or to deceive.

you are right my friend I support you

This effort is commendable.
I appreciate the effort of all those who work tirelessly to keep this platform clean and free..
I applaud 👏👏👏👏
