The issue in GetHuman1374615's own words
I eventually found the right problem on Instagram help and I typed in my problem as below but then get the error message 'the request page could not be found'! This is my problem - I try to set up an instagram account with this email, *****@***.com, but I get a message that says an account is already set up with this address, but, I have never set up an Instagram account before and I don't generlly get any emails from Instagram. I tried to log in using my email and I find out the user name is winfredgrodiny*. I'm not winfredgrodiny*. I tried to log in as Winfredgrodiny* but get the message 'there has been suspicious activity' and I need to confirm the number in my inbox. By the time I get the number, which is ******, I can't go back to the right screen. Please help. I would like to set up an account asap. I really hope this gets to a real person who understands my predicament. Thank you.
