Stolen overview - again

My overview has been stolen by a Bangladeshi FL. I imagine it was exactly this that allowed his profile to be accepted in the first place.

 

Should I be flattered? No I am not. I have flagged it as inappropriate, but just to keep my BP down, if there is a mod available, I would appreciate it if  they could message me and then escalate this to the appropriate "team" and ensure that I am not accused of lying, as I was the last time my overview was stolen.

For my own edification, how did you discover this?

Take a few lines from your overview and Google it.

Hopefully not for long ... I just flagged him. Let's all do that.

 

They need to stop accepting profiles without first taking some simple, basic steps.  Smiley Frustrated

 

ETA: They need to stop accepting profiles without first taking some simple, basic steps to verify whether or not someone is honest, or a lying scumbag who has no problem stealing other people's words. Upwork, it takes literally seconds to do this. Do you really need writers who can't be bothered to actually write their own overviews? I hope those profiles get booted off the site, they do not deserve to be here.

Tip of the iceberg, eh Nichola?**Edited for Community Guidelines** You should send a direct PM to one of the mods ... that might be more effective.

I just flagged this post. Smiley Wink 

 

The last time I reported that my profile had been stolen, I was accused of lying by the "investigating team".

Well, **Edited for Community Guidelines** was created November 2018, yours is ancient, so it is quite clear who copied what...

Hi Nichola,

 

Could you please send me a PM with the profile you discovered? I would like to follow up on it. The account Petra reported is already being reviewed.

 

Thanks!
