.if 99% of cheater come from those is not racism ar trumps but reality.

Saying that 99% (made up number, of course) of cheaters come from some countries is exactly what xenophobia is about.
For you, some nations are inferior, some nations are "nations of cheaters".
A couple of months ago, you were ranting about Russia and Ukraine, now you rant about Algeria, Bangladesh and India.
FYI, racists or white-nationalists "justifications" function based on similar assumptions: that non-white races are inferior.

It's so sad that you don't even realize it!

According to your logic, because of 10 thieves 1.3 billion of Indians are also cheaters!

Nice! Xenophobia at its best!

We are making progress, I see! You just confirmed what I said: it's a Shutterstock problem, not a nationality problem.
But since you wear your xenophobic glasses, you see nations.

PS. So it's not just Russia, Ukraine, Algeria, India and Bangladesh. I see it's also China, now! Sweet!

I look for them and they happen to be predominately from India, Pakistan, Thailand, Bangladesh and Russia. Not sure what % are fraudulent but wouldn't say it's 99%. Pity for other otherwise legitimate contributors from those countries that give them a bad name, especially India which is such a rich and colourful country. Some of those contributors just need to step out the door and see the beauty.

SS have a 90-day "high-fraud risk" list of countries before they can withdraw, so it's not by accident that those places are more likely to have thieves than others. Nothing to do with DNA or nationality/ethnicity or the fact that their staple food is rice other than potatoes, it comes down to education or in many cases, lack of. Also corruption is ripe in many of those countries and there's a kind of free-for-all and lack of social fabric that is found in more egalitarian societies. 25 cents in many of those countries is worth a lot more than 25 cents in our western developed world, so we're likely to see the proliferation of thieves in the coming years while QC standards become increasingly non-existent.

No excuse, still thieves and need to be shut down and educated. 

p.s how they let the same image be distributed by 6 people is beyond me and close to negligence for a publicly listed agency with audited accounts and a compliance dept

completely agree...having live and traveled in most of the countries, and having many friends there what you wrote is exactly this.....russia is a rich country but compared to  western country look like middle age as far as working and business ethics...ukraine not even talk, thailand the same...china? go and watch the conditions of workers...there are no ethics in those country, and has nothing to do with trump...most of them come from communist era, and after the fall of communism the so called freedom become more a jungle where surviving makes people cheat practically everyday.
as you said  100 dollar are something in india compared to usa, that's why in the last time you see indian contributors popping out like mushrooms with fas account and stolen images, same for ukraine and russia....i know people living in siberia who earn    300 dollar months working 6 days 8 hours and more...that's why a lot cheat spam use any means to makes money in ss.

Ok, so the so called "explanation" has evolved from Russians, Ukranians, Indians, Algerians, Bangladeshi, Chinese, Pakistanis or Thai people are cheaters to "poor people are cheaters".

What about saying that "brown people" are cheaters, or "Hindu people" are cheaters, or "Orthodox Christians"?

All these "explanations" are as "valid" as any! All of them are baseless and offensive!

Great! When it's not about specific nations, it's about specific persons!

Cassical "ad hominem" and "name calling", in other words, the most intelligent ways to end an argument! Congrats!

No better way for you to confirm all what I said above! Thanks!

Well Brazilnut you have a record winning entry into the image thieves collection. Two was enough, the real and the cheat. Someone found images where there were two copies and one original artist. This is the worst of the worst. I wonder who the real artist was and if they know? If it is actually Dubai it's funny how the same shot is Jakarta, Indonesia?

Look at it from a statistical risk management point of view.
If a disproportionate amount of fraud come from a small minority of areas, that's not racist in any way.
A lot of these countries have next to no IP or copyright laws and/or next to no enforcement.

Piracy, counterfeiting and everything else are big business there and are allowed to continue unabated.  Either there are no useful laws to enforce or the authorities have no interest in enforcing them (or are even involved).

That's saying nothing about individuals or anything about race, its just cold, statistical fact.  From a business point of view it quite simply might not be worth the risk to do business with or accept submissions from those areas for those reasons.

Thieves are never country specific. You are over-thinking or something bad happened with you at those countries.
Your comments are only revolving in the loop of country, racism, poorness of people.

If these people are cheating in SS then what SS(a US company) is doing, aren't they doing the same by allowing them to do so, even when people are continuously complaining about the same.

I request you to take some rest and stop overthinking.

Disproportionate? India has 1.35 billion people. 10 thieves is 0.0000007% of Indians.
USA has 325 million pops. 1 thief from USA is proportional to 4 thieves from India.
So comparing 4 thieves against 10 thieves is more or less in the same ballpark and I would not call that disproportionate.

Our dear xenophobe, should also add, as per some recent reports, Serbia, Brunei and Turkey to his list of cheating nations which already includes, Russia, Ukraine, India, Thailand, Pakistan, China, Algeria and of course, even if not on his list, USA.

If I compare 10 thieves from India with 1 thief from Serbia (out of 7 million pops), then proportionally Serbs are bigger thieves than Indians. But nobody steal as much as people from Brunei. Yes, Brunei people, with 1 thief out of 480,000 pops are the biggest thieves on the planet.

Again, it is a Shutterstock problem, thieves are everywhere.

Again you're ignoring reality.

In other areas of IT its the same,the overwhelming (yes, disproportionate) amounts of spam and hack attempts come from an IP address belonging to certain specific countries.

IP theft numbers are disproportionately high from specific areas.

Its due to no legislation in those countries, no legal deterrent from committing offences and rampant corruption.

Quite simply, in IT and other areas you can eliminate 90% of your risk by blocking 5% of areas.

You might be deluded enough to think rates of fraud and theft are no higher in any area in the world than others but quite simply thats incorrect.
