Preview images on website.
Here is deceived in the big stalk.
https://mannitolbalance.com/
The site regularly changes the photos of satisfied customers, all previews of stock agencies. This time photos from istock.auch of me were already pictures on the site. But I do not think istock is doing something about it.

I don't understand what point you're making, but that site went live too quickly: their About page is lorum ipsum ad are all but their first two blog posts.

The first post is from December, 30 2013, are you sure the site is new?

Oh! That's a long time for Loretta ipsum.
Presumably either clueless or dodgy, then.

Go down to the side and you always see 3 images with watermark.

  Last week pictures of shutterstock and 123rf.

Ah, sorry, couldn't see these on my phone.
Maybe they're testing to see what they can get off with.

I don't think any agencies really care nowadays. With the low prices, it's hardly worth their while chasing these up. iStock used to be good (for exclusives) at chasing things up (more about getting infringements removed than abut getting any payments) but with vastly falling prices there, it's probably not worth it nowadays.
I don't think SS have ever been good, from what I've read and seen.

Still, arguably it's arguably less heinous to use a watermarked image rather than just lifting an unwatermarked one off the web and using it. With the watermark, you can see it's a dodgy company (at best, careless) and you can see where to buy the image should you want to (remote chance, I'm sure!)

 That site is almost comical I wonder if they sell anything. I see there are two Mark Jances what a coincidence.
