the joke

Thank you for submitting your video a selfie. We have received this information and are waiting for verification. We will contact you within one business day. Thanks. Instagram team, The answer, which becomes ironic when he hears Iannaccone himself, is answered the next day, again by the impersonal Instagram team, we were unable to confirm your identity from the video you sent. You can submit a new video and we will check it again. No name, no address, no phone. and empty yesWithout any notes, all subsequent communications that the lawyer then directs to the Italian headquarters of Facebook are also sent to the Italian headquarters. Basically – Iannaccone complains to the social network – you’re not providing any help to a crime victim, but rather someone who appears to be free to illegally enter others’ profile, be convenient and extort money from the rightful owner who, in order to get it back, seems to have no choice Only give in to blackmail. Let me take a look at my deep disappointment as a citizen and as a user. As a citizen, the lawyer says that he does not pay 200 euros in ransom, because I did not consider myself subject to extortion due to trust in justice, and as a user because I vainly confided in your due assistance, which instead utterly failed. We are sorry to note that the winner is the anonymous rapist, but also that your inaction is not only a breach of contractbut in fact also facilitate the crimes of unauthorized access to a computer system and attempted extortion.
