    Hi guys

    I've been looking to buy IG accounts (80k and above) and can't seem to find them. I've tried eBay and fameswap, and even the marketplace here but there doesn't seem to be much selling activity.

    Can anyone recommend sites to buy them from? Also, how do you tell a real from a fake,sketchy account? I was under the impression that after the purge via IG last year - there's no such thing as "fake followers" anymore... or is there?

    Also - is it considered illegal to buy an IG acc? Hoping to avoid spending money and then having the account banned thereafter because it was bought...


    TIA!

    There will always be fake followers and bots and all of that, even after "purges" of any sorts on any social media platform. It's sort of gray area to buy/sell ig accounts. I'm not sure about the legalities of it, but it is 100% against any ToS for any social media and can result in banning if done the wrong way. Of course, this doesn't stop people from buying/selling, I mean, we are blackhatters after all, but think. It's not too hard. If you have money, message people with 80k followers asking them to sell their account. Especially the ones with business emails or kiks in their description. Contact them and good luck. Be warned though, you do have a chance of getting scammed since some of these people HATE when people ask them if they're selling, or if they are legit, they will offer VERY high price points. From past experience, I found a few good trustworthy people to do business with but also learned that 80K followers to most people is worth about anywhere from $1,000 to $2,500 depending on how active it is. And, unless the price point is absolutely ridiculous, it does make sense to pay that much upfront. These people make thousands per month from shoutouts already. And to tell whether an account is fake or real.. well, you have to use your own judgement.
