This guy is using the handle I want, he’s been inactive for years. Does anyone know of a way to report the page and free up the handle? Do popular creators get any special authority to do something like that?
Honestly I don’t think so, the only way I’ve heard is getting in contact with the person who owns it and paying them for the handle.
If his account is inactive - you can try to claim it if you have some trademarks or you own the business. If it’s just a random username - any forms won’t help you. So either contact him and ask him whether he would be willing to sell off his username for some $ or just use pure blackhat methods to get the username (I don’t recommend, it’s a bit difficult too and success rate is not so high).
He didn’t steal anything - he owns it
Uber stole my idea!!!
old saying –
early bird gets the worm. if you are a young lad it means – he didn’t steal shit – it’s his and just because you want it DOES NOT MEAN YOU CANNNNNNN have it.
The problem is we have to be mutual friends to message each other on TikTok, so I’m unable to contact him. I would pay him a large sum for the username
Does he have instagram?
I can Probably have the username claimed. I’ve done it for about 20 accounts on TikTok (it helps to spend a large chunk of money on the platform) lol
i thought im the only one who did this lol, i have like 10 to 20 accounts with high ticket usernames.
Nah, I have about 80 lol
lol how much you think they gonna sell for?
Me or Zach? Not sure who the questions for lol
You should try to contact the user somehow and buy his account. If he changes the username you won’t be able to pick it, I did this in the past and lost the username for ever.
Or, you can find someone inside Instagram to do this for you. I knew about people charging $500 to do this, I don’t have the contacts anymore…
Your best bet is contacting the user and making a serious offer for their name. Most will let it go, unless it has some kind of sentimental value to them.
Guys I’m talking about a TikTok user. I cannot DM him like on instagram because TikTok requires people to be mutual friends to send messages. If I could get ahold of him I would have the username already
Check PM yo!!
How are you going about this. Can you help me out?
I have my own reps for a variety of departments. 1 of which is the username / verification department.
