    Hello,
    After bying 10 accounts and being happy with the service I bought 20 additional ones by the end of August from a supplier that advertises here in the forum.
    Within the following 2 days I logged in to all of them and changed the passwords of the IG accounts and also the passwords of the e-mail accounts.


    I found it strange that almost all of them didn't have any post but I didn't complaint at the time.
    They also didn't have the e-mail confirmed.

    I also found it strange that the same email was being used to verify tweeter accounts (I can see the e-mails on the inbox of the e-mail accounts).

    Today, I was logging in again on many of them to use them for the first time and I saw the following:
    - I am being asked to phone verify again on some.
    - MANY of these accounts have new random photos dated from the 9th of september which were not uploaded by me.

    This means that someone entered my accounts even though they have new passwords.
    The accounts have only photos, no followers or followings.



    How can this be done?


    I am waiting for a feedback from the supplier but for me this is very serious.

    I must be extremely tired, I have a hard time understanding what you're trying to get at.

    You bought an account that has no followers or followings, just photos. There's nothing suspicious about that.

    You bought an account, and after logging in, it asked for a Phone Verify. Completely normal.

    Account creators often dont use real emails or if they do, they dont bother to confirm as its not necessary.
    - But stating that you have access to the emails that was used to create accounts, I just believe that seller was being cost efficient in re-using them for creating twitter accounts.

    You mention theres a photo uploaded on Sept 9th, that was not by you. Well..

    When when was that you purchased it?

    All in all, sounds very normal to myself.

    Some webapps/webservices only need that the IG/TW/FB account be logged in the moment of being linked. Then remain linked to your account even if you change the email or the password. Check the settings of your accounts and seek if the accounts are linked to any app/service.

    If it's only phone verification it does not mean you have been scammed/hacked!

    Hi,
    Sorry if I didn't explain myself well.

    By the end of august I bought the accounts, then logged in on all and changed passwords.
    They had 0 pictures in them.

    I didn't touch them until yesterday and what I found was that they had pictures dated from the 9th September, several days after changing passwords.

    I thought of that, using a phone I went to the linked section but whenever I chose facebook or twitter it asks me to login.
    How can I know if someone had linked for example a FB account to my IG account?

    In the app permissions I don't have any app using my account.

    Can these webapps/webservices change passwords or steal the accounts in some way?

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply... the problem is not the phone verification, but having new pictures posted in my accounts by someone else after I changed the passwords.

    The seller contacted me today saying he had no change of doing the posting after I changed the password.
    Does anybody know of a way of having access to an account before changing password and still have it afterwards?

    Note: I checked and it appears not to have any linked accounts or app permissions.
