reportIncorrectImageCaptcha: send complaint on an image captcha

Complaints are accepted for image captchas only. Your complaint will be checked by 3 moderators, 2 of them must confirm it. Only then will you get a full refund. If you have fewer than a 50% mistake confirmation ratio, your reports will be ignored. Reports must be sent within 60 seconds of task completion. If you send a report later, the API will return ERROR_NO_SUCH_CAPCHA_ID error. Only one report can be sent per task.

Why 50%? Your reports must be very precise and you must be 100% certain that they are correct. You can't just report every other captcha; you must code your software with strict testing standards and be sure that the target website does not detect you some other way.

Please note that it's not possible to reset confirmation statistics.

Please note that we accept complaints only for captchas in English language. Complaints for Russian language are not accepted and API will return ERROR_NO_SUCH_CAPCHA_ID error code.
