    Hello,

    I already got scammed this week from a fake instagram bot account. I wanted to know if this instagram account im looking at is real???????

    I dont wanna get scammed again. I just need someone that knows instagram well enough to tell me if the account has fake or real followers before spending $100 for a 10 k instagram. Please PM me if you know good amount about instagram

    Regards,

    HomieOC

    10k followers? How old is the account?

    Don't know instagram, but a good way to tell a fake account if it's for the US is to look at the followers. For instance, if it's some 20 year old hot chick from the US and all of her followers are from pakistan and india, yeah, prolly fake. Use common sense when looking at the followers.

    You should just buy a bot that can get you to 10k instead. Then, you don't have to worry about getting scammed again.

    Assuming the followers are real... Do you get the email address of the IG account? What is to stop the seller from getting the account back via email pass change? What is to stop them from changing the email acct settings, getting the email address back and then the account back?

    The best route for you is to look around and wait, and buy from a trustworthy reputable member from here.

    Look at it this way, you're not going to get a 10k IG for $100, UNLESS the activity on it is fake.

    That is a large number of followers for that amount of money. Try to research it a little bit, surely you will find something that can help you to understand is it a fake one. Wish you all the best :)

    If you know what to look for you can drastically reduce the chances of getting scammed by fake accounts. You can look at their followers accounts and see if they are real accounts, fake accounts will most of the time have only one or two image uploaded. You can also contact them and see if you get any response among other things.

    Look at followers.. they will share a common stuff.. like same pattern of descriptions, sharing of obvious pages/stuffs, they wont have followers.. their activity wont be that real. All you need is some common sense.

    100$ 10k? it should be very very very good niche...
    Anyway you should check if his followers are real. How?
    1) Look for profile pictures, they need to have one
    2) Look for bios, they need to be all different
    3) How many pictures they have uploaded?
    4) How many followers/following they have?

    pay attention with this kind of deal, sometimes is better the old good way to build an account...
