Fake account on Instagram

Hey staff,

I need to report a Fake account on Instagram. There´s an account called tjthyneagrame who pretends to be TJ. He copied some of his photos, his bio and follows other Fans. Also he wrote a message thanking for the support, etc. I thought that it might be a Fake to gather more info on which came another reply that he´s busy with projects but needs a loyal Fan who he can trust and won´t jump off board if he´s asking for the favor. Than the typical psycholoical game like he got let down a few times, everyone tells him they love him but no one proves it. Probably this account will ask sooner or later for money. I reported the account to instagram after that message immediatly. Maybe you can warn other Fans via Twitter.

Both the tjthynegrame and the tjthynegramm accounts, which both appeared to be the same person, were removed by Instagram yesterday for violating instagram policies.

Well spotted Daniela, and thanks for the follow-up, Sharon.

I don't think this has been a problem for a while but it's so annoying when it does crop up...

I don´t know about the tjthyneagramm account but the other was all new set up. Good they´re gone. I don´t get what those peoplle think. Stuff like this really upsets me.
