Hi.
This is for me personally very annoying becuase VODA Records from I-don’t-know-How-long does not leave my SoundCloud profile in peace. Their spambots are not longer sending me messages but still they follow me from time to time.

This topic I am writing according to this topic: https://soundcloudcommunity.com/trust-safety-229932/spam-voda-records-7387733

I got a new follower today which is again a spambot from “techno label” VODA RECORDS. Of course I have blocked this profile https://soundcloud.com/user-834753955

I think these profiles connected with VODA RECORDS are also bots or fake profiles:

In my opinion VODA has bought also new bots because this time they are not only with photos stolen from Instagram and surprisingly not only women. I think I have not listed all.

Some of the bots I have already reported three months ago, by example:
https://soundcloud.com/user-593175069
https://soundcloud.com/user-332001331
https://soundcloud.com/user-827707434

My question is: I use only SoundCloud app for iOS, very rare I have an access to laptop of PC. How can I report bots?

I've looked at a few. They all had no uploads and only repost Voda tracks, or Zhenya tracks who runs Voda according to his profile. They all just have a first name, some have a country but no city, but none of them have changed the URL from the User number.
They look like spambots but they seem to target who they follow quite well.

Hi, I don’t know much about bots. I have written above that they are bots or fake profiles. Few months before for sure they were bots sending also messages advertising in stupid way VODA RECORDS.

I am on SoundCloud because of music. Actually there is no other platform or social app I use. I am only on Soundcloud for music and what I have here? spam, bots and sex advertising.

Is there any way to eventually block and report such accounts with iOS app before they follow me and I can then block them using the Pulse app? Or maybe I am just blind?

Hi Marta,

Thanks for continuing to report those profiles. The most direct way to reach our Trust & Safety team is via the contact form - given this isn't a one time thing, but you seem to find many of these accounts, it will be best to reach them here.

Thank you for your respond Mathis. I assume that I have just bad luck, rather I do not look for fake profiles on purpose. My question is what now? I can report those profiles but when I do- like I did with VODA RECORDS- I get ban from soundcloud because of repeteadly making the same action.

Please Mathis have a look at VODA RECORDS, their djs and followers of them. Looks a bit strange all those profiles who surprisingly share almost all upload from VODA and they like also other tracks and even comment but in my modest opinion maybe is not so important but already few months ago they were bots sending pm advertising VODA RECORDS upload.

I am not gonna be a judge if it comes about music 😉 some people got talent and skills, some people have less talent and less skills but they are really trying. Anyway would be nice if I don’t have to fill nothing anymore and if you also have found it strange, can this case be eventually just checked?

Greetings,

Marta
Marta,

Please see my post on this topic: https://community.soundcloud.com/trust-safety-229932/bots-are-acceptable-and-desirable-according-to-soundcloud-7431619. Soundcloud support team has verified that this kind of account is acceptable and desirable. There will be no further solution offered by Soundcloud.
