Hello! For 2 weeks now, an unknown person has been bothering me on Instagram. He asks just banal questions, wants to hear advice from me. I answered him for the first days, but his activity in my direction reached the point of absurdity. I started to block him and insisted that he get behind me. Even firm remarks did not help get rid of him. In requests for correspondence, he writes from 15-20 accounts. And this is beyond normal. Trying, it seems, to get me to answer the same question. But I already answered everything at the beginning in the first days. Constantly likes and subscribes to me from new accounts, spamming with a question. A question. How to deal with him? What to do? How to complain about it? Because I ban him as soon as possible, but he still writes to me endlessly.

Hello,

I'm sorry to hear that. What you can do is to report the accounts to Instagram for harassment - report the discussions started by that person so that Instagram can take a look at the messages.

Try reporting 8-10 accounts for now and see after a few days how it goes. Hopefully, Instagram will also block all of the other accounts as well. Note that reporting an account is anonymous.

In the meantime, ignore him completely - don't reply to any of his messages. In case that person becomes more and more insistent, or even aggressive, you should also try reporting him to your local authorities.

Good luck

No, he is not aggressive.  He just wants to know the advice, but I already answered him before.

Ok - try ignoring him then. If he keeps bothering you, report him to Instagram as I've advised.

I contacted Instagram support, but this person still creates new accounts and I block them.  And most importantly, I ignore him, but he still writes.  How to proceed with him?
