As the title states, I had a personal account banned by using it on a bot.
I needed to quickly scrape around 500-600 usernames from a private page that only my personal was following so I didn’t think it would make a huge deal. After all, my personal has been around since 2015.
After scraping I could use my account just fine, but after around 16 hours I got the “help us confirm it’s you to login” page, where it sent a code to my sign-up phone number (that I used back in 2015).
I contacted support via the “more help” screen, filled up my contact info, and on the “other” box I typed that I don’t have acess to the original phone number, just the original email + current number.
3 hours have passed and now it won’t even show the “help us confirm…” screen, just straight up banned. I try to appeal but it keeps on saying that there was an error.
