    I have a client receiving 200+ fake follows a day for weeks now.

    We have tried going to private
    We have renamed the account 3 times

    the Fake follows keep coming

    any ideas on how to stop this?
    This is a singer I promote using FL, I have 50+ other clients and it's only happening to this one girl & she swears she didn't do anything to cause this

    Could it be caused by the mail account which the account registered with ? Maybe changing this will help.

    Maybe she has something in her bio, which gets scraped by those bots. Or it can be the hashtags you use.
    Check those fake followers, who else they follow and if you can find any similarity between those accs and your client, so you might get your answer.

    Nothing you can do about it except get more and more real followers to offset the fake/real ratio.
