Happened to me about six months ago. What was surprising was that this guy was a TA at flat iron school. He plagiarized using synonyms. What gave it away was that he never bothered to change the title and while reading it the structure and articulation matched my article. It was not worth the effort to get him off so many sites on the web. My family stressed more about it than I did. All well known sites were reasonable and took it down post investigation. The only one that didn't clearly did not put in the effort to investigate.

That's wild, do you know if Flatiron was notified? No way would they want to be associated with someone who did that.
