Fake Plays on my Account - PLEASE HELP

In the span of a few minutes, my track went from ~2100 listens to over 5000. This can't be real. I didn't pay for any fake likes or any time of fake gigs, I only do face-to-face+repost promotion.

Someone please help, I don't want these plays to over-saturate my audience. I tried putting the track on Private but that doesn't seem to make it stop. Am I the victim of a spambot script attack? :(

edit: I found the help center and have since opened a ticket... does anyone know how long it will take for them to act?

Get rid of that dodgy "buy" link.
Try making the track private for a while.
If necessary change the URL of the track.
I was trying to set up a gateway, but I guess basic users can't change the "buy" title?

How can I change the URL of the track? It seems to have stopped, and normal traffic has continued.
