"Reposters" blatently asking for money for reposting your track.


Userlevel 2
Hi,
I noticed a slightly dubious looking profile calling itself a repost network. There was a link on the page which went directly to a PayPal account asking for $7, but it also says in the profile description:
"After the payment your track/ mix or set will be reposted within 24 hours on all partner channels."

This has got to be against SoundCloud's terms and conditions.

I then did a search for the link and their profile text and found a load of other accounts all with the same link to the same PayPal account.

It's always obvious when someone has used one of these pay-for-repost services because most of their followers will be repost accounts which all have links to the same site. There's a lot I've seen that go to a google docs page with instructions for payment, like this one: https://soundcloud.com/distrsup
and this: https://soundcloud.com/bidtun

Also ones from wizish.com .... you can't be blatantly pushing fake activity than this: https://soundcloud.com/user-25836328

Correct, most likely a breach of SoundCloud's ToU.

You can help our Trust & Safety team by reporting these accounts as outlined here on our Help Center: https://help.soundcloud.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003446507-Reporting-scams

I will forward our post above to the team directly.

Thanks & all the best
Mathis
