ATTENTION! PLEASE FAV THIS OR AT LEAST LINK TO THIS AS THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE WHICH AFFECTS MANY DEVIANTART-MEMBERS! FULL VIEW FOR ALL THE DETAILS
A lot of you already read the newsarticles about the websites "art4love.com" and "markyourspot.com", which stole artworks of a lot of deviantART members and tried to sell them on said websites for not little money.
I, too, read those articles and shook my head as to this kind of fraud and scam, but i never had thought that i would find myself among the victims.
Then a few days ago,
comment on my deviation "PWND", that it, too, had been offered for sale without my knowledge and against my will
on said websites.
Upon further investigation, i found two more ow my pieces (for a total of three pieces) that had been taken from my deviantART gallery and been offered for sale on said websites, namely:
"Behind Enemy Lines" [link]
"Wild Wild Chess" [link]
Both websites are now DOWN, but there still is a gallery of screenshots available here [link]
for you to checkm if your artwork or that of your friends has been stolen as well.
