    Those comments really annoy me too. How long do they really spend looking at your posts? When I see that I have to pay a fee, that makes alarm bells ring!

      I know right?! I think they’ve got bots set up to post that on accounts which use a particular hashtag and don’t bother actually looking at the content of your feed!

    I can not stand these Instagram accounts. I get a comment like this at least once every post. If not then a DM with some shitty scheme to ‘Collab’
    lol blocked, byeeeeeeeeee!
    I feel for this once when I first started blogging because I thought it was genuine! I was offered a 30% discount on a set of brushes to ‘promote’ Stupidly spent £19 on a brush set I never actually wanted or needed. Funnily enough, I never got reposted or contacted again after that.

    Hot Miami Shades and Unicorn Eyewear have both contacted me! I knew it was a scam simply because I don’t have many followers-not the obvious choice for an influencer. Who am i gonna influence-all 200 of my followers?😂

      Ahh they’ve commented on so many of my posts that I just delete them all now 😂😂

    Have you ever heard of the brand “small wave company”? Im not sure if they’re legit or not and was wondering if maybe you had ever gotten contacted by them. It wasnt very generic feeling because they had followed me for sometime but only recently attempted to contact me by commenting on my recent photo. Their instagram is @swavebrands if you wanted to check it out

      I haven’t heard of them before – did you DM them? If it’s not generic I normally do as you never know!

        Hey! so i did end up DM’ing them and they did reply. This is word for word:

        “Hi! thanks for the DM! We have launched our first collection ever and so far its going 🔥! Our team is expanding, people love to be our Ambassador and we would love to have YOU be part of this too. With your discounted ordered shirt you can earn 💶 by influencing! LET US KNOW! ⚡️”

        what do you think? i dont think you should have to pay for their merch to become an ambassador!

        • December 25, 2018 / 1:54 pm

          Definitely not – anyone that says you need to buy to be an ambassador is taking the piss!

    I fell for the “Hot Miami Shades” scam. I figured I needed a new pair of glasses anyway, so might as well right? Well, here we are 3 months later with nothing to show other than a charge to my card that I’m currently disputing. I read on their site that if I dispute the “ambassador” price they will not only win the claim but come back and charge the FULL PRICE for the item. I’ve filed with BBB as well. If I see that bogus charge my next stop will be the Miami police to file a theft report and the Attorney General’s fraud department. I’m not playing around with this company.

      WOW!! I read up on them a lot and saw quite a few videos with people explaining pretty much what you’ve said above! I’m so sorry you’ve had to deal with this crap, but hope you let us know how you get on!
