Hello. I sold a photo only once, but while doing research, I found it on 2 websites from different countries. It means someone posted it without permission. Did this happen to you? What to do in this situation? And is it possible to know from Adobe in which country our photos were sold? Thanks for reading and your comments.

Stock image licenses are not restricted to one domain. The company that licensed your image may have many domains in various countries.
No, Adobe stock does not provide you with more information than you get. However, finding the picture on two websites does not always mean that it wasn't correctly licensed. You need to contact the website publisher to get additional information on that.
However, it may also well be, that you access a website that is using the Adobe stock API. In that case, the picture is offered for an additional use, like print on demand and gets only sold, when the user selects your image. This is, in such a case, a legit application and use of Adobe stock assets.
If you want us to look at the websites, you need to post the links to them here.
