    Looking for any websites available? I seen a couple of websites that users said they used to check for fake followers before on here but I can't seem to find it now :(

    I'd say you're better off using your common sense. Just look at their followers. Do their names all follow the same pattern? Are they similar in terms of bio / posts / post count?
    Also monitor the likes when they publish a new post.
    Sometimes checking the accounts that like their posts can be revealing as well. If a post of them is liked by many non-followers, however the post didn't go viral, the likes might be purchased. You could do a few spot tests yourself, not sure if there's a tool for that.

    Here is a website that claims it can check for Instagram fake followers: http://www.followercheck.co/
    Didn't work for me though for some reason - maybe it does for you ;)

    Yea I tried that website but it doesn't work. Botters are getting really good these days and their bots surely won't have the same name/ bio/ posts/post count, I ordered a few services to try for myself and came to that conclusion. I guess the only way is to check the comments against the amount of likes and followers then, since that is the most expensive thing to bot

    The majority of bought followers have somewhat obvious patterns in their names / bio though, at least from what I've seen.
    You could also check their stats (on sites like socialblade) and look for inconsistencies.

    But in fact, if someone has really good social media services providers and they don't do mistakes, it is almost impossible to spot.
