Meta employees apparently stole users' Facebook and Instagram accounts. In some cases, ransom payments were even demanded for the release of the accounts.
At Meta, it seems that employees hijack users' Facebook and Instagram accounts time and time again. According to a Wall Street Journal report, there have been more than two dozen such incidents in the past year.
Some of the victims were then blackmailed. They should have paid several thousand dollars to regain access to user accounts. In some cases, third parties would also have bribed Meta employees to gain access to certain accounts.
