    a lot of mention sellers warn that they are not responsible if the photo/post gets deleted because of the mentions.
    sounds like instagram will only delete the post instead of banning your account, if they found out the abnormal activities?

    will they ban your account? or not? anybody has experience?

    also all i see is they target some big accounts' followers. are there any mention service that targets likers? or by tags?

    Never heard of it happening, just preliminary discretion for the seller in case it would happen.

    You can also get banned if you really buy a lot of mentions

    Ive seen several accounts that have been banned from doing mentions. What probably happens is users report the picture. After lots of people report the picture, the picture gets automatically deleted. If it continues with other pictures, IG will investigate then ban the account.

    thats exactly what i want to know.
    i also suspect that it depends on the mention sellers program/code. if the sellers code is so buggy that it duplicates mentions a lot, you run a significantly higher risk. i bought comments once, and the seller posted almost every comment 3-5 times. if the comments are mentions, you are almost forcing somebody to report you.
