A new Instagram scam is going around. Scammers send a message notifying you that one of your photos was reported for copyright infringement with a message reading: “We recently received a report of a photo posted on your Instagram. An image of your album is reported to contain copyright content. If no objection is made about the copyrighted work, we will need to remove your account. Please fill in the appeal form.”
There’s a “Go to Appeal Form” button below the message, inviting you to click on it. It contains a link that will take you to what seems an Instagram login page. If you enter your credentials – it’s done. The scammers have your username and password, which they will immediately change and ask you to pay them so they give your account back to you. Read the rest of this article over on DIY Photography.
APAG recommends setting up “Two factor authentication” so that only you can log into your Instagram account.
