    Someone offered me to swap my 30k account to his 106k account, seems legit and have some positive feedback but...

    Where's the profit for the other part here?

    Maybe the niche of your account is what he needs or he has fake followers like NobelNerd said.

    Perhaps you have a unique username?
    If not, then yes, double check that his followers are real and active.
    Chances are he put fake followers / likes and just trying to scam you for a quick account.

    I'd be carefuly with that kind of deals.
    Your account has something valuable! Nobody is giving away their good 100k account for free.
    As already said fake followers, broad crappy niche

    Probably just a scam attempt or he has bought followers.

    As the say "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is".

    Be careful.

    Nobody in their right mind would trade a 100k account to a 30k account.

    Only reasons would be the person wants yours for monetization reasons or his engagement is fake.

    Almost always a scam, Like said before he most likely bought followers or they're old and inactive. Just be careful not to follow/click any links that he might send you. Note: Do a quick check also. Look at his followers do they look like fake accounts. Also the easiest way, check how many likes/comments he gets! That's always an easy way to see if he has inactive or fake followers. Lastly if he does have a lot of likes/comments Read the comments and see if they're bland it could be bought comments and likes too, hope this helped!
