Incorrect listener location

I pay to see where listeners are located. I send private links to London and keep getting reports saying the tracks were listened to in Helsinki (a lot) and Paris. What's going on with this? Are these default bullshit results?

SoundCloud's location stats are based on the IP address of the listener, and most IP address locations are based on approximately where they are located. Chances are, the person from London that you're sending your tracks to has a VPN enabled, and you're seeing the locations of the VPN's servers.
