I love SoundCloud, and I love to play by the rules that means no trolling, no bullying, and NO FAKE STATS! And I have built a reputation of being an honest SC user but a couple of days ago strange stuff began to happen. Randomly, a little announcement I had on sc went from 400 to 10400 plays and I got 50+ fake followers and a bunch of fake likes and reposts. So I spent the hour or so to block then all, and delete the other thing. But the fake followers wouldn't stop, and my newest song went from 6000 ish plays to 16000 plays, because I am an artist of high integrity, or at least try to be, I am considering taking down that track, or maybe if this attack doesn't stop, my whole SoundCloud page. Is there any way to:

A) Reverse the damage that has been done and fix my stats?

😎 Protect it in the future? Maybe hide my account for a while?

thank you very much for your time <3
