How To Report a Faker from Instagram App

This post is written for anyone that gets faked inside Instagram. 

If you are a FAN of the person being faked, copy this URL and paste it to the person getting faked. Only the actual person getting faked can use this method to remove fakers from Instagram.

We’re going to assume you are on your phone, and the instagram app is open and you are on the faker’s profile.

Step One.

On the top right side of the profile beside the faker’s name, you see the . . .

Step Three.

Step Four.

Report Instagram Faker step 4

Step Five.

Select ME.

If you click the Someone I know option, it will ask you to send that person to the instagram DMCA page.

If you click the celebrity or public figure and enter in the real instagram account, sometimes that works. Depends on the staffer checking things.

Step Six.

Now that you have reported the faker, click done.

Instagram will often respond to you directly, you’ll see their message in the likes column of your app.

Step Seven.

Now that you’re done, you’re still on the faker’s profile so once again, click the . . . in the top corner, like before.

Once the menu opens again, this time we’re going to BLOCK this clown so they don’t see your content anymore.

Click Dismiss and you’re done (for now)

Upside? Small victory.

Downside? The faker will most likely create another fake profile shortly. We have found most of the fakers start by using their actual profile first.

Most of the fakers we have found are teenage boys in Ghana, Africa. Otherwise known as Sakaway boys. Life in Ghana is hard, they have no money. They scam people to make ends meet.

Almost all the profiles look the same and they almost all have snapchat filters etc on some of the photos. After you’ve seen five, you pick them off like flies.

They follow you, they grab photos, they create the fake profile. Sometimes they are still logged in and are dumb enough to private message you asking you to create a photo. They do this so they can send it to the guy they are trying to scam.

Block, remove, repeat.

Always check your followers for fakers, don’t feel bad removing someone you think might be there to scam others with your photos. Preventive blocking has helped us huge.

Be sure to check the post so you understand the tools they use to fool people. Feel free to send people to the page so others can learn the scams.
