    Hey, so, someone is selling Ariana Grande fan page with 8k followers (gaining 300+ per day) with like 600 Retweets per pic for only $14. Is this a scam? The seller only wants payment via PayPal. If i get scammed can i somehow get chargeback? I know you can contact PayPal support but i heard that they don't care sometimes...

    Also, how can i monetize Twitter account? I search the forum and found MyLikes & Famebit networks. Any alternatives? Thank you.

    You could try affiliate programs like amazon or ebay. Then search for relevant products related to your niche and tweet the affiliate links

    i doubt if paypal would give your money back for that, these are useless accounts and could get closed by twitter. Waste of money. Think to yourself why is it so cheap, could it be because it's loaded with fake followers. Real twitter accounts with engagement cost more than that

    you can get a chargeback by paypal if at the moment of the payment you select that its a service payment. you have up to 6 months

    It's not loaded with fake followers i'm pretty sure it's not. The person is giving fake "Ariana Grande follows" and people RT his tweet for follow, etc...

    What's that site where you can check a twitter accounts fakes? It's like fakertwitter or something like that? (I can't seem to find it)
    You plop the twitter account name in, and it'll tell you the percentage of followers that are fakes, inactives, and reals.

    I don't think buying a twitter account with fakes is worth anything.

    Edit: found the site: fakers.statuspeople.com

    If the fakertwitter site is saying all real followers, then at least that's good news.
    Are 8K real followers worth $14? I dunno, maybe. The 8k are too random for my taste... but if you were going to sell some affiliate ariana grande stuff, then maybe you'd see some action if you kept building on that.

    I wouldn't sell one of my 8K accounts for $14; it feels more valuable than that.... and I kinda think $14 is reasonable enough to experiment if you want to. But also, I know how to bring 8K followers for free, so, I personally wouldn't pay $14.

    If you do it, pay with paypal and set it that you're paying a business for a product/service. If it's a $14 scam, report it on Paypal. I don't think someone would risk tying up their paypal account with a dispute over $14.

    follow 4 follow are real people, just like you, who is following for follows. This is humans making use of twitter tools people have made.
    Bots definitely have a distinct difference in their actions. They're very "botty".

    One more thing: check the tweets and see how many likes and retweets they are getting.

    Then hurry up and spend your money and start testing. Your issue at moment is over thinking instead of overworking ^^
