Title of the Wayspot: Stolpersteine Arnold, Siegmund und Elise

Location: 53.50769,8.85341

City: Geestenseth

Country: Germany

Photos to support my claim:

Additional information: My photo is from the original location of the memory stones taken in Beverstedt (53.435424,8.821289).

The photo contains the EXIF and GPS data of the real location. I also added the stones 3 years ago as a wayspot which still exists under the name "Stolpersteine Arnold, Siegmund, Elise, Annelise und Hans Leo Brumsack". The person who created the fake wayspot even shortened that to "Stolpersteine Arnold, Siegmund, Elise".

Since this is intentional deception to obtain a waypoint that is most likely at the home location, I suggest that you take the appropriate action and sanction the player accordingly.
