    Im thinking of buying an instagram account in the fashion niche and growing it a little.
    Then start a dropshipping store on the fashion niche, but i am worried i will buy an account with fake followers.
    I would really appreciate the help

    Scrapping the followers and filtering them with specific filters you want to best determine out of the fakes.

    It sure save you both time and also hassle.

    I just look at the engagement rate and check the date the account was created. I don't want to bash anybody but most of the accounts being sold here aren't even closely worth buying. I just don't buy the fact that 1 or 2 month accounts can have natural 15k followers and at the same time have less engagement than my 1.5k travel account.

    check the likes profiles, you'll know if they all look the same or not.
    also if comments had many like "nice photo" "wow"...from big pages, they use engagement groups, I wouldn't buy one with engagement groups cause you cannot know what activity it can get without the engagement groups
