First, don't respond to a client who is texting you outside of working hours for non-work related information. Second, inform your project manager of the situation.

I'm here as a last resort, working pro-bono on helping launch a small charity based e-commerce brand. I was obtaining the socials and got to instagram. The account was immediately banned for no reason (not an offensive name, client actually owns a trademark for the name) Guessing you know where this story goes. It's been weeks of trying to get contact. Did the verification codes and ID photos but nothing. Anyone have a contact for a real human being that might help?
