Buying instagram followers generally is not good for an account, as it reduces engagement from real accounts, and looks fake. So I'm wondering, has anyone ever bought followers to a rival account? Let's say you buy 10,000 to a rival business, will it kill their engagement, and is it worth it? On the surface they will look more popular, as they have more followers to the untrained eye, but will it hurt them in the long run?
Long story short, but someone tried to do it to my account before, but luckily I caught it and went private, and so could delete all the follow requests.
