Greetings everyone. The reason why I made this petition is to recover my business Instagram account, due to it being banned from a false accusation of impersonating someone else.

I had a small profile with a handful of dedicated followers on Instagram with the username @justraime. I use Instagram to promote my business and part-time job, which is being a propmaker and a cosplayer. Through this account, as well as my Facebook, I post my latest client orders, contact and discuss with my clients and promote my creations to attract more and more people. 

Recently, one of my followers has harassed me and reported me for impersonating himself, due to an Instagram bug he had, which showed his profile picture instead of my logo to my account. This could even be photoshoped, because I had always used my orange pixelated skull as my logo since 2016-2017, which I explained to this person. Nevertheless, Instagram got me banned, even when to everyone else my picture was that of an orange skull, not the face of another individual.

After a couple of days, I have contacted the individual alongside numerous of my followers, and he indeed reported me of impersonating someone else, and admitted that he was regretting his action, and the idea of an Instagram bug did not come to his mind at all. However still, even though this individual reported the issue, Instagram support has still done nothing.

I would also like to mention the fact that I would never harass or impersonate someone else through my profile on IG, because it is a way to promote myself, not someone else, and has always been following the Guidelines of Instagram.

There have been several days, and my account has not been recovered, which has caused a huge impact to my business, since I cannot promote new work, my followers cannot find me, and I cannot contact two of my clients, despite me having contacted them through email.

Many kind people and fellow followers have reported the issue. I would be more than thankful if more and more people helped me achieve my goal.
