Someone or multiple people have been downloading my images like 25 per day!
The strange thing is it seems to be one person i think as they are mass downloading one particular model!

I normally sell like 6 images per day on ss and now its like 30.

Should i be concerned or report it to ss as possible problem?

Picture - your link at the bottom of your posts goes nowhere. Well, it goes to a blank Bluehost page.

It happened to me to many times.... but in my case the picture series haz 230+ images.... It tooked the buyer 10 days to download all the images... not only on SS also on Fotolia in a different period.

From my point of view... nothing unusual   ;D . Enjoy your sales....

 P.S.  SS is THE ONLY agency that never refunds  ;)

I have like 1100 images on SS. Again today they have downloaded another like 25 images. I'm just concerned about two things

1. What SS thinks, i don't want them to think I am doing something dodgy which I'm not.

2. What exactly are they going to do with all of these images? My port isn't that varied its just people on white.

Boring and unimaginative. However, stock is just a hobby for me.

I have some sweetie-type-prettydarn-hot models, I noticed time to time some people tend fall in love with some of them (one in particular) and go on a download rampage of her pics. Probably some lonely peon who knows there's to-be-wasted reserves in their subscription and his time... and porn gets boring... and khhmmm.... you know......

It's creepy that this came up less than a month from this topic.

http://www.microstockgroup.com/shutterstock-com/what-if-somebody-were-to-download-your-entire-portfolio-in-a-year/

Yeah, and people gave me all kinds of insults for opening it.

Nice to see this topic. :p

or maybe they are setting up a fake facebook profile and needs some photos of 'themselves'... or maybe I've been watching too much catfish

They seem to be targetting single people images none of my group people images. All one model at a time. I have told SS so will prob get a response tomorrow.

That too, my fav model has been 'entered' into playboy miss social contest, with only two letters changed in her real name... profiles both on g+ and facebook. The creep even took some of her friends & party type photos from facebook.
