I just noticed that someone keeps downloading 3 of my images over and over again every couple days. It is really starting to add up. I dunno what could be the cause of this though.

That's a nice problem to have.

Hopefully it's not a glitch in the system.

Hopefully you won't have your account closed because they think you are gaming the system.

KK,

I'm curious, which site is that in which you can see who is the buyer?  I loved that feature in FT and regret it's gone.

Well it's been happening for over a month now, surely they would have caught it and stopped it by now?

Oh no! I'm experiencing THE EXACT SAME SITUATION.
Three of my popular images have been downloaded several times a month in the same order with no search terms used at various sizes. I certainly don't mind the extra income but we probably should find out what is going on? I've been afraid to ask. :-X

i would suggest that you guys contact the site and confirm about it. i'm sure they have the service to check whether its a fraud or not.

OK, I sent them an inquiry at the site.
Just seems weird. If it was fraud you would only need to download them once.  :-\ Why would anyone keep downloading the same files over and over?

it's simple, photographers earn $$ from the downloads made..

Gut 2 c u Monsieur Griffin. What kept u ?

Also, further to what JG said, it would be a bummer to keep your mouth shut and then have a mother of grandest refund from your earnings. I think I would tell on the scammers earlier on, and get a small refund, than wait till it gets out of hand.

It hurts you, it hurts all of us.

Yes, it sounds like you definitely need to report it. Let us know how much you end up owing them in chargebacks.
