    Nothing wrong was done with the account and it had been growing since 2016, it is/was the account of a very popular coffeshop/weed dispensary in a place where weed is legal. I suspect foulplay by one of the competitors.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what to do/who to contact? I've had it happen before and got the famous request to send a picture of yourself holding a code but never got a response (much smaller accounts)

    This instead is an account of a very big business that hasn't botted nor done anything wrong, I will really do anything I can to get it back.

    Thank you for reading this guys looking forward to your help.

    Did you bot the account at all? There's no reason why IG would ban an account without any reason.

    The only thing we can think of is that the account is weed related, but its legal in his country and it is a legitimate business.

    Did you not read what I just sent? It says it is NOT allowed. Even if it is legal in your country.

    How many times did you send the picture? To the same email or did you have to restart the process every time?

    They told me my page was disabled and I had to send a recognised goverment ID and a selfie with my instagram handle and name on paper. I sent it about 4 times restarting the process but I doubt that actually made them recover it faster lol I think every email I got after reporting it though had a different reference number so make sure it all matches up correctly. As soon as I got it back I changed niche so I didn't risk losing it again.
