I was using Growmyinsta to grow a few of my instagram accounts. One day the owner tells me I have a password reset on my 38k instagram account @theancientworld. As I logged into my email to change the password I noticed someone had already been posting pics, changed the account bio, and had a cpa link in the account bio. I was able to change the password and shortly after I was logged out of my instagram account. The owner of Growmyinsta and I were the only ones with the password. I googled the cpa link and the first thing that came up was another instagram account. I immediately recognized it from a thread here on BHW by a user named Theswolerbear who is also using Growmyinsta's service. What a coincidence. Here is his thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/instagram/783765-changing-niche-instagram-40k-account.html Theswolerbears account @theluxuryschool had the exact same bio and cpa link as my stolen account. Here are 2 screenshots. The first is my account @theancientworld after it was stolen and had the bio changed and cpa link added. The second is Theswolerbears luxury account @theluxuryschool with the same bio and cpa link.

Once I confronted the owner of Growmyinsta and showed him the evidence I had that he was involved in the theft of my account, the bios changed on both accounts and the cpa links were gone. Another coincidence. Faced with the overwhelming evidence the owner of Growmyinsta says that theswolerbear is some guy he doesn't know but he allows him to manage Growmyinsta when he is too busy. I find that extremely suspicious that he would let a total stranger manage his business. Here are 2 screenshots of the owner of Growmyinsta saying he allowed theswolerbear to manage the accounts.(clearly this is a complete lie and Growmyinsta created theswolerbear to give his business more exposure) View attachment 70196 View attachment 70195 View attachment 70200 View attachment 70201 Here is another link between my stolen account and Growmyinsta. You can see the profile pic for Growmyinstas kik is the same as the pic that was posted on my stolen account. These screenshots are all taken at the same time. Way too many "coincidences" surrounding Growmyinsta. View attachment 70197 View attachment 70199 View attachment 70198 I would also like to add the owner of Growmyinsta is Frank Tobin. This is the same Frank tobin who was scamming BHW users with his Mysocialmagic bs. http://www.blackhatworld.com /blackhat-seo/shit-list/426551-mysocialmagic-com-complete-scam.html As well as his scams under the BHW username Sola Rank http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/shit-list/652603-sola-rank-scammed-me-300-usd.html I highly recommend that anyone using his service should stop and get your account back as well as open up paypal disputes for every payment you ever made this scumbag. It would be nice if BHW would permanently ban this guy seeing as he is a serial scammer and just comes back under a new name. I feel like this thread should also be in the instagram section so everyone knows he is a scammer. As for my account, I have yet to get it back and I highly doubt I ever will.
