Has anyone else experienced this? What is the possible purpose of these fake accounts? Short of messaging all of them myself and getting my artists to, what can be done to close them?
Thanks in advance.

The reply email from SoundCloud was that the account was set up by my digital distributor so they couldn't take the tracks down for copyright because the distributor is my rights manager. I need to contact them about deleting these accounts they've set up. There are around twelve of them in total which need to be removed. It seems a pointless gesture to have set these up since they haven't added buy links which could bring them a bit of business. Also the accounts look spammy by having no picture or profile info, so if someone is searching for an artist's page it will be obvious which is the genuine one.
