Con-man-woman in Hubpages

    There is currently a forum thread that discusses plagiarism.  On two occasions, I wrote two different articles for two different people . I was given the job in freelancer.com.   I was not paid and I left  scamsters alone after some pursuing.  After a decent interval,  I found the articles in Hubpages  in two different names. One a gentleman (!) and the other a lady(!!)
    When I confronted them, they simply kept quiet. I threatened them with action. No dice!

    I tried to raise alarm with Hubpages management.  I might as well have dropped a stone in the Pacific and expect it to bounce back.

    I forgot all about it, end of story.

      Did any one else have this kind of experience?

    How much time did you give hubpages to respond, and did you send them a DCMA without your assertion of copyright and contact details?

    If you file a DMCA with HP they will respond.

    If you write them and say "Hey!  I wrote that article under contract and didn't get paid for it" you will likely receive no response.  HP has neither the responsibility nor authority to enforce private contracts.
