The seller pointed out that they aren’t offering stolen accounts or channels, either providing remote access.

The seller started offering the access with an ad that was posted on the dark web marketplace on November 16th, 2022.

Below is the adv published by the experts:

“Accessing telegram servers. I have access to the Telegram servers through my employees. I can get any information for you!
Do not write if you are financially unable to pay!
Hacking telegram is not possible! All information is taken from servers!

The seller also offers an archive containing the correspondence for a period of six months.

At this time is not possible to determine the authenticity of the claims, however the alleged presence of insiders represents a serious threat to the company that is hard to eradicate.
