I’ve acquired abandoned IG handles before, and that’s exactly what happened. Staff changes the original one to have _underscores_ preceding and proceeding the name, then my account gets renamed with the original.

Sorry that happened to you.

I do not know of any recourse. Just letting you know that it definitely appears to be an action by staff, and not some kind of hack.
