Tutorial on how to idenity a thief by RAINBOWcolorz Tutorial on how to idenity a thief by RAINBOWcolorz
If someone just joined today, and they are posting adopts that seem a little fishy to you. Follow these steps. I've had people asked me how I find so many, this is what I do.
Right click the image and copy the url. Go to www.google.com/imghp click the little camera button you see and paste the url. Google will search by the image looking for anything identical and usually if they are a thief it will be one of he first links.
Just thought I'd post this to help people from buying something stolen.

You have to be on the google images homepage, not the regular google search.

That's how I found the original of the last one. Art posted by someone who just joined, with them trying to sell it always looks fishy to me. So I check first to stop people from wasting points on a thief.

I don't really know if it's stolen or not, maybe not, but just to make sure since there isn't a main account available or something like...

Search didn't come up with anything, I don't think it's stolen, but it still is a bit suspicious. The price I feel is too high as well. But I think it's alright, and not a thief.

Woah, that is amazing, so could you search up your own art url and see if people are stealing it? Would it work? ^^; I think I'm getting ahead of myself here xD

And thanks for posting this! It will help alot of people :)

There are tons sprouting up recently, so I figured, maybe this will help people not waste their points. Thieves never give them back.
