So many accounts just being used to silicate sound cloud followers always repost my music. It really wouldn't be a problem, but I don't want people to think I am using this to get attention to my music.

I agree. I have had about 30 in 1 hour on most days. They are doing my head in. I feel that soundcloud should charge a small fee to join in order to stop this spamming. Even if it is only 1pence / cent. It would certainly help.

Just like any criminal network someone is creating these fake accounts not for the sake of music but for the sake of profiting off of new and upcoming artist who don't know any better. Everything online is turning into a scam.
