Glitch Records make a new profile and upload their advert every evening and SoundCloud delete it in the morning. If the latest advert is showing in your stream it means you are following one of their bots. Block and report that profile.

Also, they re-use the same pictures and names for their bots. Next time you see the advert look at the accounts reposting it. Quite quickly you'll see the same photos coming up again and again. For example:



These photos are all stolen from Instagram. If you see profiles with any of those photos following you, block and report them.

If you get new followers that have no uploads or reposts, haven't changed their URL from the User number, have no profile description and just seem to be following lots of other random accounts don't automatically follow them back.

Also, if the account has a woman's name but a picture of a man or a man's name but a picture of a woman ..... that is a bot. Look at Georgina Perkins in the top left of the picture!!!!

They used to call themselves Glorify Records and sometimes still use that name:

They are getting around 500 of their spambots deleted every day, and new ones they create get deleted before anyone follows them. They've started using pictures of mountains and lakes on them as if that will make them harder to track. This is what they look like now. Kind desperate, isn't it.

They are now back to having bots with women's names but pictures of men. Check out Amy:


And what about Cindy:

New profile? https://soundcloud.com/user-419046967

Glitch records are still active, they are just making fake accounts with the only track they have reposted is an eleven second message telling users (they only seem to be targeting smaller artists, as many of my friends have been targeted, scummy) to submit their tracks to their site, by following users.
Hope you get this sorted,

I hate that fake bots
