I had a very bad experience with Depositphotos.
I haven’t used my account for a only 2 months ,today i entered the website to download an image needed urgently, and my account with all the Unused credits that were kept in my account suddenly “disappeared”!!!!
the customer service say they can’t trace them . I am surely not going back there ever again.
My name is Shawn, I’m working at Depositphotos. I think, that it some kind of misunderstanding.
I just checked your account, with your username and it seems, that the last time you logged in to your account on Depositphotos, was 01-09-2011. Do you have a different account?
