|I have an Instagram username from October 2010 that I have been actively using.|
It is 4 letters long with a repeating vowel. For example: GABA
Throughout the years I’ve had numerous people ask for the account via Instagram. I’ve had offers from $500-1000 that seemed serious and a couple in the $10,000 range that felt like phishing scams so I blocked those accounts.
It’s a personal account. I don’t sell anything from the account nor do I plan to. There are multiple companies in multiple different business streams with the same 4 letters as their name.
I’ve had at least 500 attempts to reset my password in the last 9 years!
Eventually someone will hack into my account or will get a lawyer to somehow sue me or a username troll will take over my account (like that guy who posted here who took over all those inactive accounts).
What are my options? Is there a marketplace to sell accounts?
Is there anyway to reach someone at Instagram and have my account linked to me in case I get hacked? I’ve tried to get my account verified but it’s not a popular account and I’m not a famous person so no luck with that yet.
Any input is highly appreciated!
