The scammers usually email links to their potential victims' accounts. The links go to fake or phishing Instagram websites that ask visitors to sign-in in order to be verified, but any attempts to sign-in will result in the visitors' Instagram credentials and personal information being sent to the scammers or cybercriminals behind the fake or phishing website.
Remember, never click on links to request verified Instagram badge. Instead, click here for instructions on Instagram's help website. Hundreds of Instagram users are losing their accountn because of the Instagram Badge Verification scam, therefore, try not to be victim.
