(aka ‘dubious badge of honour’)
Has anyone listened to the ‘The Snapchat Thief’ on the Reply All podcast?
It’s about the seedy underworld of social media account hacking/theft (and black market sale) from those who have particularly ‘OG’ single word social media handles like ‘Lizard’ for example.
Excellent episode but what I don’t get is why don’t people just approach the owner of the OG social media handle and offer them $1500 for their account name??? There can’t be many people who wouldn’t sell up straight away?! Why bother going through hackers?
Do you have an OG username? Would you sell it for $1500?
