Recently, I found that some of my forum posts were stole by some members. I reported the stolen content to the admin and was rewarded for reporting. If you find your contents being copied by someone else you should report.I have never experienced my content being stolen before. I don't even know what to do when something like that happens. I think I will just ignore and move on.
Hahaha, I can imagine your surprise when you saw your hard earn work online. Well it's very possible that your HOD sold your project to another. This is usually a common practice, they would sell it to other students who have paid to help them write their projects.Lol. I once finished my school project, submitted it and after a while when I graduated, behold i saw it online, word to word, how it got there, I don't know.
I have seen a lot of these things on this forum. People tends to lift words some just copies and paste directly. When next I come across it I'll do well to reportOnce on a forum (but I can't remember which one) someone copied my whole post and passed it off as their own on the same forum I had posted it on. It was easy for me to spot so I just reported it.
