Fakes and invalid portals, Schwarzenberg part 3

City: Schwarzenberg

Country: Germany, Saxony

Previous threads for this town (>150 reported portals for a small town with 16k inhabitants, and that's only what I can figure out from remote position, although with a little bit of local knowledge):

Title: Kinderspielplatz "Oswaldtalstraße"

Location: https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=50.543287,12.797258&z=17&pll=50.543287,12.797258

Additional information: This playground is part of a daycare: https://www.st-georgen-schwarzenberg.de/kindergarten.html ..... it doesnt have a visible google marker, so I tried to create one, but the system says that there would be a duplicate, although nothing is visible. So it would be nice if someone with more expierience in editing google maps could have a look at this.

Title: Wellenskulptur

Location: https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=50.544103,12.799236&z=17&pll=50.544103,12.799236

Additional information: According to the official property maps of the state/county this wayspot is clearly at the garden of a single family home.

So this is only ugly garden decoration of a private home.


Further there is again another ongoing fake submission out there. The used infoboard for this fake attempt was already mentioned in the first post from my list of threads above.

So it is a fake-located duplicate to: https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=50.537216,12.78328&z=17&pll=50.537216,12.78328

At that place of the fake location have been other fakes before, so this is a repeated cheating action there.

    another Location fake from Schwarznberg. The mural shows the local castle, but the houses don't fit that location by far. Further I reported around that location a dozen of other fakes in my first mentioned thread from above....

    So please be rude with the sanctions for the fakers in that town ...
