  4. I’ve been lurking on this sub for a week, searching the internet, reading every bit of information available, and trying to find or contact any HUMAN who can actually help. However, I’m beginning to realise that my problem will not be easily solved. I was referred to [email protected]. I’m one of the thousands of Instagram users affected by this farce. Also on Instagram under the handle Marie_consultancy. You can also get in touch with her. She successfully unlocked my locked Instagram and Facebook account, demonstrating her ability to provide me with appropriate and sincere services.

  5. I need to update my PayPal payment information for my fab claim. How do I do that? I’ve already received a payment verification code( don’t know where to submit it) and since receiving the 6 digit code, I lost my phone and need to change my phone number so I can receive payment to PayPal.
