    Hi all,

    I want to buy a year-old account to begin my own actively without risking being banned.
    Is there anything I should be aware of? Like avoiding spammy accounts or the like?

    Thanks

    Search for the @ username on the web and see if they spammed porn or other illegal crap in the past.

    Ask why the seller is selling it, usually if it's a scam they'll give you a really bad reason they're selling.

    Else if the search is clean and there's no mob going after the account, you should be OK. IG will probably verify you if you're on a different region, so if this is legit and long term, prepare to get verified.

    Crap. I'm in Asia and it is legit and long term...
    Maybe I should just create a new account and start really slowly?

    hmm... I see all the messages from guys who were banned... I can't risk that
    I think I'll start from scratch and go slowly
    Thanks
