Hi, I had been a contributor at shutterstock over many years.  As my company decided to close stock activity I requested shutterstock to close account in end-December 2020.  At that time there had been over a hundred remaining images many of which I had tried to delete manually but they kept re-appearing.  Anyway I was informed by one of their Expert responders that it can take up to 90 days for the account to be fully closed and I decided to wait out that period.  It is now over 90 days but my remaining images are still showing on sale at shutterstock, but without showing any contributor name.
Have written again to shutterstock (awaiting response) but meanwhile am wondering if someone here has similar experience with shutterstock?

I manually deleted all my images back when they first announced the contributor-shafting they were going to give. I left my account open, because many complained of the same issue you are having...that their images kept showing up for sale.

I just checked my account, and no images are showing. (that doesnt necessarily mean they arent still selling them, sneaky ba$$tards that they are). But many others had the same issue as you. 😟
