Deactivated 1M Instagram Suddenly Password Stopped Working And New Email Never Seen Before

Hi I have deactivated 1M page that I have been trying to get back forever. All the sudden the password to login stopped working. And when I send login link it goes to a email i’ve never seen before. I have the original email and was not notified of any email change or password change. Or that the account was even reactivated. How is this possible? I did give some people who I paid the password to it when trying to unban it.

Sorry to hear about what happened. You mentioned that you gave the password to some people before, they can be considered persons of interest in this case. Do you still keep in touch with them?

Or maybe the account got hacked by someone else.

but wouldnt i recieve some kind of alert in the original email that something was changed?
