Can anyone please enlighten me how does this work?

I received 4 requests like this today and they keep coming but I don't see any new downloads.
Are these buyers just playing with us or they do buy something at the end?

Now another one. Should I report this or it is normal?
I think the emails I get are triggered but the buyers options making DT sent out an automatic email.
Thanks for any input.

edit: and another.

Had one too. Looks like someone is buying large scale to make digital products for resale if you ask me...

It's just they are all different subjects, from backgrounds to food, construction work, Christmas decorations.....seams very suspicious. I hope they will not accuse me that I did it myself, like it happened to other contributors here with another agency.

They are still coming, now it's flowers. This cannot be true.

Could be someone is serious about acquiring material for unlimited resale - webtemplates.

Today I have received only 12 such requests so far .... I have granted them but I am not sure if that was a good response.

I received one but what surprised me was when I went to enable it on the Dreamstime site  I found that about half of my portfolio had ELs disabled.
I usually enable them at upload.

I had a dozen or so, mainly of older stuff. I just deleted the emails. Obvious sham of some sort.

I have 8 of them now, not all but most of them have 0 dowloads at DT, so from my part they can have them. They make no money anyway if they just sit there.
I am very curious how will this end?

Could be,
He took a pause for an hour or so, then he came back for more. Could also be that he is not done yet selecting what he wants.
Of course that doesn't mean that he will buy something.

Yes, they keep coming and I think he is having a great time watching us how we jump to enable EL-s at his command.

I got 3 over a seven hour span. Just letting them sit for now. Particularly suspicious that it is over a weekend.

I had seven over a roughly four hour span. I enabled the licenses and will see what happens. I've saved the emails so it'll take next to no time to set them all back in a couple of days if no one buys - and I agree it's not all that likely.

It's an odd scam if it's a scam - if you weren't on the level, you'd just download the images as a subscription and use them however you wanted. The images were all different subjects. None were best sellers. If it was a hack of some kind, I can't imagine how this could be used.

I'd think the most likely explanation is some sort of software problem on DT's end that was supposed to be doing some sort of maintenance and sent out these emails by mistake :)

Yup, had a bunch come through today. Not sure what it's about.

So far, over 50 of these requests. Enabled around 10, but I'm not expecting any sales, it's some sort of a bug or scam I think
