    How do I stop them? I am getting 2k daily and it annoys me because I have 28k followers but only around ~13-15k are real because of them.

    There's really no way to stop them, but you can remove them.

    I've created my own bot that does this, I don't know if I'd sell it though, not yet.

    You can ask someone else to create a bot that blocks these spam accounts maybe an experienced coder?

    Is there no real solution or fix to stop fake followers! I'm really disheartened by the thousands that flood my account! What's the point? :/

    I use 2 tools. The first is IGExorcist which is a website. The other is an app called InstaGhost (iphone). The second one is a but more manual but you can check closely who you are deleting/banning. Exorcist seems quicker/easier..

    Also some bots have the ability to delete followers that you are not following. That could be another option.

    I notice that this junk spam invasion is hurting those who are selling bots or provide services for web-based auto liking like Instamacro! So this spam invasion is doing more harm than good!

    I found a solution that can has stopped the spam followers and still allows me to run my automated script but BHW auto spam block isnt allowing me to post the details so I guess I cannot offer this solution. Yet, there's nothing in my response or solution that violates the terms but is triggering the auto-moderator. Oh well...

    Well I have noticed it is effecting non botters & non BHW'rs too.. Even ordinary people have been getting this annoying follower spam.
