Default Strange picture i didnt take is in my dropbox

Today I discovered a picture in my dropbox camera upload that I did not take.

Viewing the file on my computer it is just a png file with a statusbar without clock.
Now on my S3 there has always been a clock, so it's not a screenshot I have taken.

On my S3 the image is quite different.
Immediately when opening (before app renders the image completely), I get a picture with a clear motive.
After rendering, the image is more distorted.
This is only viewable on the device, not on a computer.

Sorry about the motive in this image, there is some brat in a back seat of a car waving at the camera with his middle finger.
I would love to blur the image, but I take my chanses uploading it as an original. You have been warned.

I DO NOT know the people on this picture.

Please share your theory or ideas! I am also happy to answer any questions you might have.
All I want for this thread is to understand why these people are appearing on my phone.

Original file attached to this post.
Will upload the other images in next post

Ok so I have a theory. I bought the phone used. I formatted all storage before use, but this might be some resilient file that got caught by Dropbox and is now corrupted because it was supposed to be deleted. What I think is strange is that I never saw the picture on my phone or in my Dropbox before yesterday. Yet the date for the file is dated back in 2011. Both capture date and upload date. The meta data (AFAIK) in the original file says the image has been captured with the s3 as a photo, not a screenshot. Not sure if I want to settle with my own logic here...
