🙅 Sex Workers Are Getting Scammed on Instagram. Meta Needs to Step In — Rolling Stone

The worst part is when I’ve paid these people, it’s often worked. They’ve retrieved my account. I’m thankful for that, but it raises questions about how these people operate and what they know, not just about sex workers’ Instagram accounts, but everyone’s. How do they get the accounts back? Where do they work when they’re not retrieving sex workers’ accounts? How do they communicate with Meta to fix the problem?

There has to be something sketchy going on at Meta for these types of things to happen so quickly and so successfully. It’s frankly gross. Meta needs a way to report these scams, take them spatially, and track down whoever is disabling and re-enabling the accounts to find the root cause and stop it from happening.
