    Im sourcing some accounts to buy

    I found this guy owning this fashion account which is selling


    He asks 500 usd and states it gets over 2000 likes per photo


    Which is true, I mean, each photo has around 2000-2500 likes


    But then you go check the comments and they all are kind of automated and unreal....you check the profiles and they all have 5 random photos.......FAKES


    NO SURPRISE yet, nothing new






    What im trying to understand is the behavior of its followers count.

    Check the stats:

    does he manage 520k fakes ?

    Fake account, fake followers, fake likes, fake comments, Maybe IG removed all his fake followers he bought. that would explain the + and then - 520k & 49K

    If this guy has money then he doesn't need to be managing the fakes, he just pays for them....

    Any activity like this should raise a huge warning flag and I personally wouldn't go ahead with any purchases. Up to you though, just my opinion.

    no way buddy, his account is worth 1$


    But I was trying to understand the behavior


    So he bought 520k followers....and the very following day Instagram deleted them all ? sounds strange


    Then he bought 49k, and the following day again ?

    I don't really think there is much to see here. It seems very likely he has a large scale bot network, and yes he likely is the owner of ALL the accounts. He's creating fake engagement rates, and then banking hard off people's ignorance in my opinion.

    He must have access to a huge pool of IPs and user-agents or device pools, and everything is totally automated within his setup, so he is easily replacing deleted accounts with new ones very shortly after IG bans the ones he uses to pump up his stats. That's what it sounds like to me anyway.

    Before you buy the account you should scrape the accounts likes and then take a look at the liker's
    accounts and see if they have more than just a couple of images uploaded. If all the account have
    just a few images uploaded or just look like crap then you know it's not real.
