    So I got approached today by a "mentor" and he said he has a pretty good deal for me regarding a 100k account. I don't know the price yet.

    I checked the account on socialblade and I can see for november hardly any followers +20 max per day .. All of a sudden in December the guy grew his account 30k... The account is one year and a half old so the build-up towards 60k is perhaps legit..

    The engagement is also very low .. 97k followers and on average 700 likes + 20 comments per post.

    What are you guys' thoughts? Garbage I guess? It's so tempting to buy a 100k account to speed things up ...

    Stats are crap, probably botted.

    Unless it's for $100, don't get it.

    700 likes per photo? The acc has fake followers. It's not worthy investing on it

    My personal account is 93k followers and i have an average of 2k-3k likes per posts, some times it hits 4k.... Too me that stats is scrap unless he is willing to give you for free or 50 bucks. i'll suggest you settle down, take your time and grow your account afterall rome wasn't built in a day.

    If it was under $100, I'd probably buy it, delete all content and use it as my personal account... You could pretend to chicks at the bar you're a mini-celebrity when you show her your Insta followers ;)

    Yeah man I'm a bit pissed of at him for trying to rip me off like that .. Just wanted some second opinions to hear if it's perhaps worth the investment if he sells it for like 100 dollars or less .. Would it then be worthy of buying?

    Best part: I now see he grew last month 30k all of a sudden and he only posted once during that month :D

    PS: does anyone know how much a lux account with 100k followers with real engagement costs at a site like viralaccounts.com for example?

    Thanks for the input guys!

    It's garbage. I have a really engaged audience and get over 7k likes and 700 comments on my 100k account. My comment rate is unusually high, but I think a typical 100k account of real followers gets 4k likes & 50 comments / photo

    Don't do it. Dude is sketchy.

    Check the design/look of the Instagram account. If it sucks or the engagement is bad, then leave it alone.

    less than 1k likes per post is pretty bad. Followers may be boosted with some AddMeFast crap lol.

    Lol so his initial price was 6K for the account :D ... My "mentor" was able to get it to 3.5K :D so ridiculous ... Anyways I didn't purchase obviously.

    Thanks everyone for the input!

    Ooh and my "mentor" told me he grew 30k in one month doing private S4S video's ... It's a growth method used around 50k he told me. Is this true?

    I have a 10k account with the same amount of engagement that account is getting. I would assume a vast majority are fake.

    sounds like a scammer... because a 100k account with normal engagement would be around 1k, may be more if the engagement is really good.
    I got a 100k+ account aswell, but never heard about private s4s video's.

    Correct and spot on. Or like they say on Instagram "Best of the Day".

    For real, listen to KarenMiller, about time we hear real numbers from real accounts.

    You don't need account full of irrelevant followers. You need account with niche followers that can engage and monetize. That account is crap. I bet half of the followers are pervs.
