    What can I do about this? The follower count has increased with 5x in the past week, and all the followers are fake. Someone has clearly set this up on purpose. Could be a competitor - or someone else who wants to harm the business. What's ideal to do here? IG/FB doesn't allow you to report such an incident.

    only choice is to go private. I used to do this similar concept on another website a few years ago just to troll. it really is an ingenious tactic.

    Whoa! That's a smart way to set up competition and make their account look fake af. Unethical but smart.

    Is there a tool to see how many followers are fake?

    That's a very tough spot.

    Even going "private" wouldn't help because they'll continue sending fake followers and then you'll spend hours upon hours sorting thru fake accounts to accept the real followers.
