The owner had several customers report it to him, and has been made aware that the fraudulent account is requesting credit card information and has scammed people out of money, claiming to be the business.  If you receive a message from the attached Instagram account, please report it and don't send any personal information.  The true Instagram account has no "_" marks in the name.
