    Has someone seen in the last days or weeks instagram accounts getting cloned or duplicated ?

    On my personal instagram account I am seeing accounts of friends getting cloned/duplicated and they follow me.
    The accounts have the same profile picture and bio and no photos on it, the username is something like lambo.fans or so. And other friends follow this account, this is making me think that the account has been cloned.

    Has someone experienced something like this ?
    Is this cloning or do they just scrape all the info and make new accounts ?
