A user creating fake Wayspots over and over and deceiving moderators (Iksan, South Korea)

Common items for all invalid Wayspots

  • City: Iksan
  • Country: South Korea (Republic of Korea)

This abuser has been uploading fake Street Views since 2020, creating massive fake Wayspots in several cities.

He created a bunch of fake Wayspots near their residences for the convenience of himself and his acquaintances.

Google Maps accounts where fake Street Views were uploaded are:

Most of fake Street Views have already been removed.

The last 3 Wayspots are when the structure has been demolished.

Title of the Wayspot: 숲은 우리의 보물입니다

Title of the Wayspot: 육각정

Location: 35.941623,126.927168

He didn't just fool Wayfarer reviewers. He also deceived moderators in Wayfarer community.

Below are examples of his abuse in Wayfarer Community.

6 out of 11 were accepted. However, since you reviewed Discussion #29417, 1 fake Wayspot has been retired and 2 Wayspots have been returned to their original locations.

Case 1

To bypass the Lv.17 S2 Cell rule, "제일고층경로당" Wayspot was moved as desired.

He used RAGEINMAGO-PGO to relocate "제일고층경로당" Wayspot to the outside. He then relocated the Wayspot back inside using Goinma12-PGO(formerly goinma-ING) to create another fake Wayspot on the outside..

Afterwards, a fake Wayspot was created at 35.944107,126.945396. But, via Discussion #29417, that fake Wayspot was retired.

Case 2

He requested to relocat "풀꽃" Wayspot, created by uploaded fake Street View, closer to his residence. The first attempt was unsuccessful, but the retry was successful.

Afterwards, via Discussion #29417, "풀꽃" Wayspot was retired. So, Case 2 is resolved.

Case 3

To steal a Pokemon GO gym, he uploaded a fake street view and tried to deceive moderators by using Goinma12-PGO(formerly goinma-ING), but failed. Retry with goooooinma-PGO was also unsuccessful.

Case 4

He tried to bypass the LV.14 S2 Cell rule in order to create a gym for an acquaintance living in differnt city. First, he succeeded in relocating "삼위일체 소성당" Wayspot from the center of the building toward the entrance of the building.

Then, he made a false report and tried to relocated "자애로운 성모님" Wayspot to the west, but a moderator moved the Wayspot to the east, where its original location. Nice!

He made another false report by using SunnyRose-PGO, but was denied.

Case 5

He made 2 false reports and relocated 2 Wayspots to the wrong locations.

Afterwards, via Discussion #29417, these 2 Wayspots were corrected. So, Case 5 is resolved.

Wayfarer Community accounts he used were:

  1. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/profile/discussions/goinma12-PGO (formely goinma-ING)
  2. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/profile/goooinma-PGO
  3. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/profile/discussions/goooooinma-PGO
  4. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/profile/discussions/Ohgoinmaaa-PGO
  5. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/profile/discussions/RAGEINMAGO-PGO
  6. https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/profile/discussions/SurryRose-PGO

The first 5 accounts belong to him. The 6th account belongs to his acquaintance. However, Discussion #26892 was written by him, not the owner of the account.

After some of his accounts were sanctioned via Discussion #29417, he renamed Pokemon GO accounts of goooinma-PGO, goooooinma-PGO, REGEINMAGO-PGO to the differents.

  • formely go****** → *******B****S2
  • formely go********→ Or*C****S2
  • formely RA******** → Me****I*M***

His LV.38+ Pokemon GO accounts are 17+. He has multiple accounts per team. Also he has Ingress accounts in Enlightened and Resistance respectively.

As expected at the end of discussion #29417, he once again created a fake Wayspot at 35.941774,126.927173. As long as his accounts remain unsanctioned, he will try again sometime.

In addition to Wayspots featured in this Discussion, there are still more his works. As you can see from Discussions #29408 and #29417, he is having a detrimental effect not only on Iksan, but also on other cities such as Daejeon. His abuse must be stopped.
