You typically won't get one, and there's usually no need. Once the issue has been reported, Dropbox will investigate it and take action if necessary.

What is the typical action taken against the abuser

Re: NUDE PHOTOS OF MINORS PLEASE HELP

Well I’m very concerned in the lack of update or not knowing if there’s any action taken at all
I’m not sure if you are aware but this is a felony and I’m concerned there’s more out there and that these images and/or others may make it tot social media
I’m currently looking for a job and something like this could hinder that process
Im wanting to report it to the police however, you’ve already deleted the the link so I guess I should’ve taken my action before reporting it to Dropbox
Who's talking
