Dealing with Anonymous Instagram Accounts – a case example
Our client was a business trading in designer merchandise. Someone had set up an Instagram account alleging that the goods that he sold were fakes. Our client did not know who was behind the Instagram account, but he did not want to spend significant sums of money on obtaining a Norwich pharma order. We managed to find out who was behind the account and the account was taken down and the false allegations topped.
We wrote a detailed letter before claim to the defendant who realised when we wrote to him that we knew who he was. The account was never set up again and our client was very pleased.
