I have been seeing A user in particular post questions that in my opinion show 0 effort in research and no attempt to try and resolve on their own. My first instinct is to leave a comment and downvote the question, however, immediately after posting the question, it is upvoted after I downvoted.

Curiously, the same user posted their own answer and it was upvoted almost at the same instant (the answer was/is not even the answer).

how are these situations handled since I believe Voting is anonymous, right?

    It really looks like the user have multiple accounts. I think this is supposed to be detected automatically. But I think it takes some time. – Martin Lezer Jun 29 '17 at 13:56

    It's often a red flag that gets me investigating dupes, but very hard to catch them all and always helpful to get tips from the rest of the community. – Adrian Larson Jun 29 '17 at 14:11
  • @AdrianLarson Here is another example of inappropriate upvotes – Raul Jul 13 '17 at 11:20
  • Not a ton of evidence for me to work with on that one @Rahul. It looks likely they have a couple co-workers voting for them but hard to say. – Adrian Larson Jul 13 '17 at 13:46
  • ok thanks for your opinion. – Raul Jul 13 '17 at 13:57

This issue has been resolved. I had already noticed suspicious behavior and cleared it up once. This user has been notified again, more strongly this time.
