    Hey,

    So ive been negotiating prices with a guy selling a good account with great engagement and lots of followers. What do i need to get from him so there is no way he will ever be able to access the account again?

    only things i can think of are

    1)account username and password
    2)recovery email and password

    after i have these things is it pretty much 100 percent guaranteed he wont get the account back? Any help or tips are very much appreciated and ill give thanks!

    if the owner posted a pic they took themselves on the account and they still have that original pic they might still be able to take the account back even if you have the og email

    Ye tell him to remove the phone number and if you are using paypal make sure you make the payment at once so if he scams you you can ask for your money back...

    Very risky buying instagram accounts.. If you do end up having to dispute with paypal you will not win once you admit you purchased an intangible good.
