Normally I don't like to be the harbinger of doom or conspiracy, but a few minutes ago, I was brought to the awareness that there is a site using my works on DA to sell as their phone cases:
copycover.com/

From what it seems like; The site snatches images found using a search function, without a proper check if the work is free to share. This results into works being sold for money without the artist's consent. Please stay on high alert of this matter. More info can be found in the original journal:

PSA PLEASE READ IMPORTANTBecause I'm getting criticized: THIS IS A PISHING SITE BE WARNED
Happy now? 
A site is litterally taking pics from DA to make phone covers to sell. I doubt the artists are aware of this and I doubt they will see any money for the stuff they are selling. 
This is the site in question http://copycover.com/
They even name the artists in the titles (you can check if your name is in there too…So far I haven’t found anything mine, luckily.), but I doubt they intend to pay them even a cent.
REMEMBER TO ALWAYS WATERMARK YOUR STUFF! USE SIGNATURES, USE LOWER RESOLUTION WHEN YOU POST STUFF. USE WHATEVER YOU WANT, BUT PROTECT YOUR ARTWORKS.

This site is probably a scam. Nothing seems to be sold here. They probably just hope people are going to buy non existant phone cases

I hear that the site is actually a phishing site, where they do this on purpose to get you to report to steal the information you give.
