    I got scammed by wlrdinfuence.com (Instagram username: wrldinfluence). They said that if I gave my IG account they would send me 400$, i know it was stupid but I did it and i feel really pissed off...

    Later I see from alexa rank that these guys do not even exist... Full scam but they (or he) played the game too good.

    Packed with my Instagram account, I gave him my google account too. I know that is impossible right now to recover these 2 accounts (google + Instagram), but i would like to ask.


    Can I simply delete my Google account I gave him? Is this possible? I mean he must have changed everything... Thanks to any member that will even try to calm me with his/her replies

    ? What did you give him access to? Gmail account? Because that would be the main thing used to verify/change passwords in most accounts unless you turned on 2 factor authentication

    Yeah, you see... I couldn't do it with escrow because of bank account reasons...

    I feel really pissed off im telling you... Never before that much...

    He seemed too legit.. believe me. Those 138k followers he had made me think he was trustworthy...

    I know. But sometimes, if you don't want to learn from theory, you have to learn from actions. This is what happened to me..

    There's no way to get back your Instagram, he full on scammed you. Try recovery options in Gmail and see if it works, they ask you questions like when you created the account, old password, etc...

    Note: He will most likely change the email in Instagram or delete the message that Instagram sends to your original email.

    I don't care about the Instagram that much... Okay I lost a 24k followers account.

    But... Losing your personal email address? That's hell, Lucifer...

    Google doesn't seem to let me do anything...

    Use the device that Gmail trusts more, the device that had more activity in your Gmail account. It seems that Gmail can't really detect your device as trusted.

    Just thing you paid those accounts to learn lesson.

    Forget those accounts and move on.

    You can not get those accounts back.

    He most likely removed your sessions and added his own device as trusted

    If this is possible, can you try talking to him? just for your personal account.
