    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for your comment.

    The issue has been reported by some Internet Explorer users. It’s not your end that has the issue, however using a different browser will help.

    I am working on a fix for it.

    Why does the same crime occur 3 times? It is a pity that we can not stop it after the first attempt, I would like to know more about the circumstances around the second and third attempts and the protection the inhabitants could get from our community.
