Instagram Deleted Account

Instagram Delete Account Scam: How It Works

Is Instagram resetting its servers and deleting accounts? Will all the accounts start from 0 followers again?

Social media is a beautiful thing. Not only it helps us connect with loved ones or sharing pictures, but also lets us see what’s new with all our acquaintances. However, all these benefits open doors for scammers as well, who are taking advantage of very naive people. How does the scam work?

Watch the video below to see the first variation of the Instagram scam, exposed:

On the other hand, in the latest scam going around, criminals claim to be from the Instagram offices and inform you that they’ll close your account if you don’t share a certain picture. The text says:

“Instagram is currently having some technical difficulties, so your account may get deleted. In order to not get deleted, repost this picture and tag @donotdeletemyig. Thank you for your patience – Instagram staff.” Or something along the lines: “our Instagram Council is deleting your account”.

Well, you’ve been taken for a ride. Scammers just played with you. While in these cases criminals typically might redirect you to compromised websites with viruses or spammy survey sites, this time somebody was just very creative and just fooled around.

    WARNING !! To all those who have been following Nick Loriaa on Instagram, he is not a 13 year old kid. He is actually a 50-60 year old man stalking young girls in the 12-14 year old range. There are many girls who have given this man a lot of their information thinking this kid was interested in them. There are a lot of people now tracking this individual and are determined to find out everything necessary to put a stop to him with the law. The person in the photos does really exist somewhere but under a different name. This person is copying all this persons photos under the name Nick Loriaa in order to attract young girls. Please have your child unfollow this individual immediately and block him from their account so he can’t continue to get information.
