I'm not losing on purpose, I don't "sandbagging". 
I'm just very bad at chess. Still learning, but always lose. I don't care about losing. Losing is fun. Someday I will win the game.
I'm just afraid that chess.com alghorytm can see me as "cheater" because my losing wave.

They are used to beginners losing games, once your rating gets to where it should be you will be winning more.

Unfortunately, double accounts are not allowed.

I've tumbled from 1050 to 700 recently due to burnout and sickness and classic self destruction. Don't fret, the system works well and doesn't seem to penalise me when I have my regular downward spiral. I've never used any help with my games, and have never in 4000 games been questioned for cheating so all I can summise is the chess.com fair play assesment works very well indeed.

Having 503 You have nothing to lose. Just play and practice and play.

503 is daily chess. The guy is probably bragging about blitz, where he successfully reached 100. He is a sandbagger.

Is it possible to tell the difference between playing normally and sandbagging at <500 rating?

Nobody gets to 100, the Holy Grail of sandbagging, just by playing normally. Nobody gets to the top of Mount Everest just by walking north from India, walking, walking, minding his own business and then suddenly he is on top of some tall thingy.

You’re probably right.

I was 400 and I came to 900. Do more lessons and study openings,gambits and you will automatically win matches

The short answer is; if you are playing fairly, you do not need to worry about anything. Their fair play process is sofisticated enough to not punish legitimate players - notwithstanding exceedingly rare exceptions.

Anyway, we are wasting ink for a beginner, He can't be a NM, FM , GM. Never
