I am buying an instagram handle that I am paying via escrow but for added security I’d love to ask the seller to Sign me a written agreement saying he is giving me his username.
Any chance that someone could share a template with me ?
Would be extremely grateful.
I am actually using escrow.com for the transaction. The seller seems very honest. He claimed a username for me (my first name) to instagram via his media partner relationship and got it. He DM’d me from the insta account to prove to me he owned it. The account is brand new and we are doing the transaction via escrow with a 3 day inspection period so ill have all the time i need to do all I want to secure the account. So that’s even safer than PayPal.
Like I said, what worries me is that he could make a claim to instagram later to say that I hacked his account and that he wants it back. It wouldn’t be hard to prove for him that he is the original owner since he will have the proof that he claimed it.
Also are you buying the whole account or just the username? Bc if you put the user name on your account, then it’s not his account, it’s your account and you just changed the name to something that was available when you were changing it.
This even happened to Facebook once when they didn’t renew their domain name and someone bought it in the meantime and Facebook had to buy it back for $$$.
You cant help it if he released his username and you scooped it up, right?
Also, did you approach him or did he approach you?
I’m buying the whole account, which is brand new. 0 followers and 0 posts since it was given to him directl by instagram.
Email is included but I’m putting the username on my own account which already has 250k followers.
I approached him. I was referred to him by someone i know who used him.
Just so you know, I finally got the username. Escrow.com gave me a 3 days inspection period before releasing the money.
I accessed the original email of creation of the account. Changed the password, changed the recovery email, encrypted the mailbox, and set 2FA with my phone.
I then accessed the insta account, changed the email (although im the only one with access to the previous one too). Changed the password, and set 2FA here as well.
It seems now that this account is a fortress. Im also making sure to be active on it so instagram doesn’t thing its unused and doesn’t give it to anyone claiming it.
FYI, the name of the account is so popular that people try to reset the password all day hoping they will get in it! Im getting reset links by emails every hour lol. Im also overwhelmed with DMs asking me to sell the username.
Looks like everything will go smoothly from now on…
