Stolen portfolio on Bigstock.  Looks like Josh-the-bear again.

As there are at least two images that have different originators on SS, it certainly looks like the BigStock portfolio is a scam

Did it really not occur to SS to check BigStock as well?

Really?

None of these are mine - if someone had an image in the earlier stolen port, perhaps they can contact SS/BigStock to get this scammer shut down

I was going to answer yours but here we are. I see some I recognize, none of mine on the first pages. I expect this account will start to empty or be locked very soon as the victims write to BS and SS.

What always scares me is this crook has all these photos and could go to 100 other sites with them and might make some money before discovered. Sad state of Microstock.

Still no replies from ShutterStock or BigStock on this guy.

They need to do a better job of handling these thieves.
