Couple of months ago I bought 5 aged instagram accounts from a seller on bhw marketplace and few days ago at least one got hacked (noticed it when the profile image got changed, potentially more got hacked but no changes have been done for me to notice) even when I changed the passwords of my mail.ru emails. Spoke with a seller and he told me that it's common for 5% of accounts to get hacked within a couple of months...

That applies for all sellers that sell accounts with mail.ru email, so pretty much all sellers.
 
You can confirm that by checking the previous emails in the mail.ru email inbox, which contains previous instagram emails stating that the username has been changed, which indicates that the account have been used by several users. That really makes me question whether any accounts’ seller is honest with his accounts.
 
I had the have problem, i bought 50 and 7 got hacked. Sad..

Pm me who is your seller?
 
probably using a mail.ru email will also increases the changes of getting blocked by instagram
because it seems to be used by the majority of instagram accounts creators and those accounts usually get blocked fast by instagram
 
i think you have bought stolen accounts. Seller buy accounts on hack forums, most likely russian, it costs 3-6 rubles (5-10 cents) for 1 year+ account and resell them on bhw for more expensive price )

It seems like people are referring to resellers on BHW. Which website are you referring to?
 
Cant you just change the email associated to the acc?
 
May be seller hacked them? For resell purpose?
That was the case in the past but it's advised to change the password of email linked to account and my mail.ru accounts did not have any recovery emails and/or phone numbers, so I don't think that seller hacked them. And my password where 10+ of all kind of characters.

It's probably better to use gmail,hotmail,yahoo etc. that mail.ru although my accounts are running fine with them.

Yeah, that's how it works. I used to buy fb accounts on russian forums and they worked fine. But on that forums I only found around $1 aged insta accounts. Would appreciate if you could PM me the link where you saw that price for insta accounts.
Cant you just change the email associated to the acc?
Yep, did that, no changing of profile image or deleting my posts since. So, that worked although that is a bit time consuming and if you don't have enough sim cards to create your email accounts you'll have to buy them which is additional cost...
One question for you. Did you change the passwords of those mail.ru accounts ?
I sure did, with very strong passwords. And still got hacked... mail.ru security sucks
 
This has nothing to do with mail.ru emails.

Here is what happens:
Hacker steals ig account

Hacker sells account to someone else

Original owner contacts ig to regain access

Account is taken by ig and linked to original owners email without notifying your mail.ru

Pretty sure all accounts running with mail.ru that are acquired legitimately work perfectly fine

Doubt it because I've been having that account for months. Instagram sure took their time taking the account back... Although account profile image was replaced by some women and only post where of her husband and her, the account has a phone number (not mine) attached to it (since I got the account), so your theory is possible.
 
@OP you may be wrong (im nearly sure you are wrong, but i would still say you may be wrong).

Biggest mail.ru accounts seller on market is buyaccs.com For sure many instagram account providers use mail.ru accs from buyaccs.com.
Buyaccs.com offer "second hand" mail.ru accounts. After X months they sell same mail.ru accounts again for cheap.
Some people use this accounts for spamming.
....
Others may use this "second hand" mail.ru accounts to get access to instagram/facebook etc profiles created with this mail.ru accounts.

I create mail.ru accounts myself in tons and i never had situation where mail.ru account was hacked (and im creatling like 5-8k mail.ru accounts a day)

I think you might be right because yesterday I had my profile image changed on instagram account even when I changed the email address from mail.ru to gmail

I think you are probably right because today my profile image got changed again, there was the phone number attached to account and well the "hacker" could have copied the password and username of my account the first time he got into the account. That's why today I deleted the phone number from account and changed username again. If "hacker" gets in again well fu*ck.

Do you think that it's enough to change mail.ru password, username of account and if the account has phone number delete it (I guess insta acc can be recovered that way) enough to not worry about something like this happening when buying accounts?
 
Do you think that it's enough to change mail.ru password
It should be enough to change email acc password and instagram password + you never know if your instagram accounts seller is "real" seller or reseller (so you dont know how many times emails, or even instagram accounts will be sold). Because of this I think bought accounts are good for spam tasks. If you are doing whitehat stuff on IG its worth it to create all accounts by hand or with some bot so you can be 100% sure noone will ever know your login/email passwords.
