Hello my dear Steemians and Art Fans,

Today we wanted to tell you a story of people who lie in order to get more Upvote from Curation accounts in Steem.

It is very frustrating to see that we human are easily following the wrong path if we can see easy way to trick the people and benefit from it until the person is caught up.

 


Art on Steem


 

The people who are on Steem for a while they know that recently @steemitblog with its curation accounts @steemcurator01 and @steemcurator02 are supporting Art with good upvotes.

What then the people who can’t create Art will do they will steal from somewhere. Recently we were watching couple of those accounts and now we have evidence and wanted to show them up for users and for curation accounts so that they do not support Thieves

Country Curator for Bangladesh @steemcurator07: please be aware of following users:
 

These three accounts are from Bangladesh: @solaiman12 , @curatorlover and @deepak02

Because both of them posted the same Artwork. Unfortunately @solaiman12 deceived us too and one of his post we upvoted with @art-venture too.

Since then we started looking in the depths and found that @solaiman12 as well as @deepak02 are stealing the work of one of the very well know Video tutorial called Art-Arena. So we just go one by one:

 


@solaiman12 , he writes:


 

“I am a student of the sixth part of the electrical department here. My hobby I like taking pictures very much. When I get a good moment in nature, I keep it on camera. I love nature very much.”

Few weeks ago he had different thumbnail for his blog but then suddenly he turned into an Artists and started to post amazing Artworks.

First of all the drawing of eye is something very special that many artists use like we do for their logo. So we started to search and within a minute we have this user in youtube, facebook and instagram:

Now the story begins, he thought that he is able to steal someone‘s works and Identity and get paid for that:

Klick on the link and you will find many videos that this user stolen and present as his own:

Now to this account @deepak02 created in September 20, also from Bangladesh, he writes about himself:

 

My hobbies:

The biggest hobby of my life is to be an engineer.So my father admitted me in Diploma Engineering.I got a chance in the first section in Diploma Engineering this year.

Nothing about doing Art and then he suddenly became an Artist with videos, his photos with Artworks difficult to find because these users are cutting them out from videos, that is why Reverse Image search machine often can‘t find it, but knowing the style of different Artist and investing time in such detective work it is possible to reveal such Abuses of Steem:

You can see again stolen from Art Arena:

We hope you have had enough evidences and from our side we are going to blacklist this users in our community and we would like to call for all Art curation accounts:

Banished Judas has taken more than a few little Steem...
How can one be so impudent and even enter a competition with stolen art? What a pity that money makes the world such a bad place.
Good detective work - I hope you stay motivated despite all the bad!
Schönes Wochenende,
liebe Grüße

It is difficult to imagine what the people think when they do so.If they lie here, how they behave in their real life? Because this is just blogging and people are not getting hundreds of dollars as cash to say that it is a lot of money.

It is bitter to see that. But this is only a signal for us now to check, check and check. @axeman is doing the same work with checking for plagiarism in Photo department in our community and it is unbelievable to see what people do.
Thank you for reading and sharing your opinion.

Ich wünsche dir und deiner familie ein schönes wochenende und genießt vor allem die letzten Sonnenstrahlen des nun beginnenden Herbstes :)

Liebe Grüße,
@stef1

Good work!
It's not ok, but I think the point is that the value of money is very different to them than it is to us.
If you're only making $ 50 a month, that's not just cents, it's income!

Das ist schon richtig und es ist sehr traurig, dass wir uns in unserer Wohlstandswelt kaum mehr vorstellen können, wie viel Geld $ 50 für Menschen in armen Ländern bedeuten.
Dennoch sollten auch diese Leute ehrlich ihr Einkommen verdienen. Hätte der Junge ohne Betrug einfach sein Diary-Game durchgezogen, hätte er durchs Posten monatlich mehr Steem verdient als ich, denn die Steemcurator voten diese Beiträge durchgängig.

Hi Chriddi,
das sehe ich natürlich genauso...
Beim Thema Geld denken die Menschen in diesen armen Ländern aber oft anders. Ich kenne das aus Uganda nur zu gut. Es wird oft nur kurzfristig gedacht und häufig versucht "sich zu bereichern".

Eine Reinigungskraft in einem Hotel in Uganda verdient ca. 30,-€ im Monat! Und das bedeutet: 6-Tage-Woche, Anwesenheit fast den ganzen Tag und das Allerschlimmste daran, sie werden oft nicht bezahlt. Gleichzeitig bekommen die Menschen mit, wie wir leben, sowohl vor Ort, als auch im Netz.
Das ganze Leben ist immer ein Existenzkampf ohne Sicherheiten. Das soziale Netz ist höchstens die Familie. Und dazu kommen noch so Sachen wie keinen Strom und kein Wasser in ihren Häusern zu haben. Dann gibt es noch gesundheitliche Probleme und Todesfälle (oft unnötig, Ursache fehlende med. Versorgung).
Wenn man das alles wir live erlebt hat, dann macht einen dieser ganze Zustand oft fassungslos.
Der Überfluss, in dem wir leben, ist vielen garnicht bewußt....
Aber natürlich ist Betrug und Unehrlichkeit, egal wo, nicht o.k.
Lieben Gruß , auch von...an...und überhaupt..Schönes Wochenende!

Schon richtig - wer weiß, wozu ein jeder von uns aus Verzweiflung im Stande wäre. Wenn die ehrlichen Möglichkeiten aber offensichtlich dargelegt sind, habe ich trotzdem kein Verständnis. Gerade ihr zeigt auf, wie viel man mit einfachen Mitteln erreichen kann, wenn man nur freundlich und menschlich bleibt. Und das, ohne die Würde zu verlieren und zu reinen Bettlern um die Krümelchen der Reichen zu werden.
Euch auch ein tolles Wochenende - von, an mit einem doppelten Wauwau...
LG Chriddi

Zum Thema Würde:
am liebsten würde ich gar keine Bilder von der Lebensmittel-Verteilung aus Uganda posten.
Stelle dir mal vor, uns würde es schlecht gehen und dann kommt jemand, gibt uns Brot und Seife und wir sollen uns dann vor unser Haus stellen, es werden Fotos gemacht, die dann in die Welt hinaus gehen.....Für mich ist das grenzwertig. Aber ich weiß auch, ohne diese Bilder würden wir kaum Spenden bekommen (ist so schon schwer genug..).
Also haben wir keine große Wahl, wenn wir helfen wollen....

Hm, das kann ich nachvollziehen.
Aber die Menschen lassen sich ja freiwillig fotografieren. Ich finde die Bilder nicht würdelos. Sie drücken Dankbarkeit und Zufriedenheit aus und sind dazu geeignet, so manchen Wohlstandssack und Meckerer auf hohem Niveau zu zeigen, wie wenig dafür nötig ist.

Thank you for this @stef1.

Through the vigilance of @kiwi-crypto we had already spotted @solaiman12 and @curatorlover, and banned them from The Diary Game.

We will keep an eye out for @deepak02.

We want to send a strong message that plagiarism / content theft is not welcomed on Steem.

The Steemit Team

Agree with you, hope people will learn the lesson and will do right thing. It is easy just to blog as other ones about themselves and their life and daily routine rather than to try to cheat.

Thank you for your statement:

Cheers, @stef1

@steemcurator01 I will never steal and post again.This is my big mistake.

@deepak02 jangan lakukan kesalahan lagi, karena akan merusak reputasi Anda, bagikan yang milik anda. Jika bukan berikan sumber

Give me a chance.I have admitted many times that I made a mistake.But I was not given a new chance.@steemcurator01

Hello @stef1
And I congratulate you on that excellent research work.
It is here, in these cases of plagiarism, that I see more than the negative votes.
It cannot be that someone benefits in such a blatant way from what is not his.
In Project Hope, I together with @gbenga and @juanmolina by the hand of @crypto.piotr are doing a work to identify the plagiarized posts, evidently it is a work, it is necessary to dedicate a lot of time to discover everyone. But little by little we have been cleaning up the plagiarism. But the road is long and never ends. Because unfortunately there is always that person with no morals who wants to take advantage in different ways, with the minimum effort.
Certainly, we are all guardians, good slogan.

Good work.
Resteem to this post.

Hi @josevas217, thank you for your comment and I have seen few posts when @project.hope was expressing the position towards plagiarism. I am glad that you are keeping an eye on your users too. It is easy to get some of such posts sneaking between normal users and it is very delicate job not to offend people but to reveal abuse.

Hopefully more people are aware and point to such cases, then less of them we will see. With the time when we the accounts and communities are better established we might have them under control.

Cheers, @stef1

Oh.. @deepak02 a third account 🤦 Thank you for revealing.

Thankyou for stopping by and reading the post, it will help to spread awareness to others :)

Yeah. That's correct. I'm thinking how they manage 3 accounts😅 I'm unmanageble with my single account

Yes, agree, me too. There is absolutely no time, maybe that is there full time job ;)

Hee.. it seems

Good job. I think the three accounts belong to the same person. I used to doubt seeing their art before Because they would not write their name under any art.

By the way, just found another user from Bangladesh, maybe he is also someone you came across:

https://steemit.com/hive-182834/@rofikislam/anatomical-art-by-rofikislam

@rofikislam account is very old. But he has never posted art before Some days he is posting about art. My guess is these are some of the same people. Otherwise they are doing these things as a group.
Mute these accounts from the 'World Xpiller' community. Then they will not be able to do such work anymore.

Hi @toufiq777, yes that was also the reason why we were surprise to see such beautiful work and not much written but only seeing the similarity in different accounts with the same very distinct style made us very suspicious.

Thank you for your feedback :)

Excellent job dear..you done really great job

Thank you @yousafharoonkhan for reading and for feedback :)

Thank you :)

I have to be honest. I feel safer knowing that some people do a deep work for mantain the cuality of this community. Congrats to them. Now, for those people stealing i have something to say: grown your spirit, look for you self and feel ashame. Have a nice day everyone.

Thank you for your feedback and hope those people are reading your comment too :)

Thanks for sharing this 👍🏾

You are welcome:)

Thanks again and keep up the good work 👍🏾

Great job on this! It's lame that people feel the need to steel from others, really lame.
It's great to see that all of us are keeping an eye on avoiding plagiarism, thank you!!

Plagiarism is a problem everywhere, even recently few politicians are been caught by the research works where they have taken the whole paragraphs from some others works that were published in the past, temptation is everywhere :)

This is my first time seeing cheating in a contest

Thank you for your feedback and hope that there was some useful information for you :)

Wonderful post this will make us understand many things as a newcomers 👍

Thank you for reading and it is important for newcomers to know about such things :)

You are right 👍

Wow what a great research you have made Looks like Sherlock Holmes haha. I mean first you found the comment then the username he used than profile picture then place where stolen . Also the introductions

Mannnnn you really won my heart ❤️

but how did you got evidence from picture to art-arena YouTube channel. Looks like it would have taken lots of hardwork reaching out evidences.

It is hard work and we are working hard every day searching the piles of different posts. I would say it is almost like full time job for us.

On and off we check youtube and Instagram or even Visual Art selling platforms in order to find such cases. So much work every day :)

Keep up the hardwork with your hardwork those who are stealing the content of others are not only stealing their rights but also hardwork of them which is very unacceptable even unethical are getting punished.

totally agree, honesty is always the best

Thank you for your opinion :)

Great job for the community @stef1. It is really very hard to find out that, good work for detecting them.

Thank you Theia for your feedback, only now we can really understand how much such guys like Steemcleaners were investing in keeping Steem clean :)

Hi @stef1, I am not a professional artist and don't have any recognition but posted an article with my sketches today for the first time. If it gets copied — how can I come to learn?
How to get rid of it?
@stef1, please check my article too
Eyes of A Passionate

Hi @steemianartclub, first of all if you are new, you should do an introduction post and the best is to get in touch with Steem Greeters, here is the last post:

https://steemit.com/hive-166405/@cryptokannon/steem-greeters-team-and-country-representative-japan-report-3rd-week-of-september-2020

Also it is important that you decorate your blog, you should have thumbnail and background.The first post should be introduction post, so that people know that there is a person behind the account who wants to communicate.

As to your work, because we do not know you, you are new, when you post your artworks do on and off pictures the process of your work. Also at the end always sign and probably put a date on it. In the future use always the same signature. Hope that helps :)

To @stef1,
Thank you for help. And I signatured below the sketches what I
uploaded yet — thanks for reminding me.

fantastic art work i really love the design please i want to know how to join the designers contest

Hi @vemooremedia, this is not a contest, you should read properly the post and leave appropriate comments otherwise that might be felt as a scam

La falta de honradez nunca produce nada bueno, buscando la comodidad y la rapidez allí están las consecuencias .

Thank you for your comment :)

Very sad @stef1, that people go to this place where all they can think about is putting a few more dollars in their pockets... and they do it at the expense of other people, too. When you come from a part of the world where the average annual income is perhaps under 1000 USD, perhaps the temptation is greater than it would be for you or I... but dishonesty is dishonesty.

I know how this feels on the receiving end, too... as I have had both my writing and photography "stolen" online, over the past 20 years.

Nice detective work, though! I appreciate you doing all this... now if someone would just do something about all the SPAM in the "recent posts" feed... (NOT your job, haha!)

Hi @denmarkguy, thank you for your feedback and I am glad to know that you have the same vision like many of people here. You are right dishonesty this is the problem, sometimes once caught people may get changed but the others will keep doing the same under different names, circumstances, place. That is the worst part.

I can imagine that how you felt finding your work under someone else's account or name. That hurts but I do not think that the thief had any feeling at all.

Spam is another problem and we see a lot while curating in "world of xpilar" community, there definitely needs to be someone who will be fighting that.

Mereka telah merusak nilai seni, banyak dari mereka melakukan kecurangan karena tidak mendapatkan Votes dari @steemcurator01, akhirnya mereka mengambil jalan yang salah

Thank you for your opinion, I agree with you. But on other hand it is so easy to get attention of curation teams especially when simply taking part in so many contests or Diary games. People could write about themselves and do not need to be a brilliant artists at all :)
