After removing 15 fake points of interest in a certain region of the city, new requests, similarly faults are being sent from the same location.

Title of the Wayspot: [Igreja Batista Fonte da Vida]

Location: [-19.091797,-39.724089]

City: [São Mateus-ES]

Country: [Brazil]

POI Link: https://intel.ingress.com/?pll=-19.091797,-39.724089


This fake POI reported above is a copy of this:

Title of the Wayspot: [Igreja Batista Fonte da Vida]

Location: [-20.380086,-42.252197]

City: [Santa Margarida-MG]

Country: [Brazil]

POI Link: https://intel.ingress.com/?pll=-20.380086,-42.252197

These fake requests are always created by the same account. This account, in addition to making false requests, has been reported several times for the use of multiple accounts in Ingress and PokemonGO, but remains unpunished.

Best regards,
