The issue in GetHuman988549's own words
Hi my name is Isabella and my instagram account has very recently been hacked. My username was originally bella*mcmanus . I was trying to login into my account one morning but then I got a notification saying that my username didn’t exist. I was very confused at first, so I asked one of my friends to check out my account by looking at the photos they tagged me in. They told me that my username has been changed as well as my profile photo. The hacker also accepted all of my follow requests that I was going to decline. I tried to reset the password using the username (Shalinnannalee) my friends told me that the hacker changed it to, but it sent it to some random email and not mine. So the hacker has also changed my email and phone number that was originally set up with the account. The hacker has not deleted any of the photos that were on my account and hasn’t posted anything yet, thankfully. I have had this same account for the past * years and have changed my password often. So I would really appreciate it if you could get it back for me. Thank you* Sincerely, * Isabella
