SCAM ALERT!!!

Yesterday some ‘Picky officials’ followed me and thought it was a legit official account so I decided to followed it back but didn’t even bother to look at their timeline on Instagram. Now I have opened my Instagram account and saw a message from that account saying I have won a giveaway product. But before I could get that, they needed my credit card and they also need me to register on their partner sites. They really have provided some partner sites but instead of clicking that I’ve clicked their Instagram account to see if it is real. I saw that they just got created their account 1 day ago. ( So it’s definitely not an official account ) I just want to share this to y’all especially to those who are still new to this community to at least somehow raise an awareness. Be attentive and don’t just click any link that they would provide for you. People really are awful, they think they would scam people easily even in social media accounts. I’m not an influencer or anything. But I love receiving packages and all especially when it’s free but still be smart enough to check out their company and review everything first. Hope this information gets your way. Thank you.

this usually happens to me if I join a GA on instagram, some scam account holding almost the same username as the acct hosting the GA would suddenly follow me. They're bio would always say something along the lines of "official page for *brand name* winners!!" I don't pay any attention to those, they just rack up my follower count 😂
