Instagram head Adam Mosseri was briefly locked out of his Instagram account in September after he was falsely reported as dead. 

A scammer who goes by the username @Syenrai told Vice’s Motherboard that they were responsible for the ruse, claiming to have created a fake obituary in order to convince Instagram that Mosseri had died. 

“Like other internet services, Instagram has online forms to help people report suspicious activity or to let us know a friend or family member has passed away,” a Meta spokesperson told Insider, who confirmed that Mosseri’s account was incorrectly memorialized for a brief period of time.
