We’re taking the opportunity to show you guys one of the worst accounts we’ve seen in the past few months. This property comes from one of our tickets. Normally, I wouldn’t reveal the sellers’ property, but he/she signed up with fake information, used a temporary phone provider to join SWAPD, and lied about his/her identity. On top of everything, the scammer tries to pawn this trash account onto one of our buyers.
The account in question is here: https://www.instagram.com/erthview/
Instagram ID: 1917145782 (in case he/she changes the URL)
100K followers in a day? This screams fake.
Do you see the top graph? See the sudden spike in followers? If you see something like that, check the account to see if there is some uber-over-the-top viral post. If there isn’t, the account is 100% fake and the followers are bots.
The wonderful generic comments of bots:
I am just posting one photo, but I encourage you to browse around the account and read the comments. This is usually one of the best ways of checking for fake activity. This account is so bad that most of the comments do not relate to any of the photos.
We hope our members will find the time to check these basic things themselves, before opening tickets. We don’t mind helping you out and doing the work for you, this is what we get paid for. But we will do our best to educate the less expirienced users on how to avoid and spot bad properties.
<3 you guys!
