If you’ve been using social media for a long time, chances are you’ve already lost your account to hackers – or know someone who has. It’s no wonder, as the situation has become increasingly common in recent times, especially on Instagram.
There are some recommended procedures for when a user has their account stolen, but apparently some people prefer to try their luck a different way. This was the case of Ana Rios, who chatted with the hacker ‘in friendship’ to try to recover your Instagram account.
The prints of the conversation between the two were published by her on her Twitter and soon went viral on social networks. Check out:

After the repercussion of the post, the user confirmed that the hacker did not return the account. That is, in cases like this, negotiating with the criminal can simply serve as a meme, making room for his followers to take a hit in the meantime.
If you have lost your Instagram account, it is worth mentioning that it is possible to recover your profile even if the scammer changes your email and password. For this, the user can go through up to three steps, which will depend on the data changed by the hacker — check out the full tutorial.
