I found a game from @KatieLao, which is my sister account. I found out that her opponent's time is out but it said it's a draw.

I just played 5 min. blitz and at 20secs left opponent ("gogo_123" added always time... (I had over 2 minutes left...) so instead of me winning i draw. - i called him out, reported him and blocked him. But does that happen ofter?
